Special Response Team, the Major Crimes Task Force executed
a search warrant at the residence of Monica L. Moening, age
27, at 121 E. Spring Street, Marietta, on 27 Feb 12. Task Force

The fugitive, Torrey T. Swain, age 31, 428 Crestwood Avenue,
Akron, was located in the home and arrested without incident.
Under questioning, Ms. Moening admitted knowing
that Mr. Swain had an active warrant and said he stayed at her
residence intermittently for the past three weeks. Despite the
fact that Agents observed marijuana on a dining room table,
cocaine in kitchen cabinets, and unidentified pills in a kitchen
drawer and a kitchen pantry, Ms. Moening denied knowing that
Mr. Swain had any narcotics in the house. All of the narcotics
were easily accessible to the four year old child in the home
and visible in plain sight. Consequently, Ms. Moening was arrested
on a fifth degree felony charge of obstruction of justice and
a misdemeanor charge of child endangering.
