On 17 Jun 13 Peggy L. Palmer, age 58, 1017 Third Street, Marietta, reported sometime during the past three weeks an unknown suspect(s) entered a vacant home she owns at 1045 Bethel Road, Marietta. No property was stolen but the suspect(s) vandalized the inside of the home, spray painting graffiti, defacing walls with markers and pouring cleaning supplies throughout the home.

On 17 Jun 13 Deputy Sheriff Reeder requested summonses for Jodie D. Miller, age 30, 27360 State Route 7 Lot 17, Marietta, and her brother, Derek D. Miller, age 33, 1080 Walsh Road, Vincent, for disorderly conduct by fighting. Initially arguing over an unwelcome houseguest, the siblings later quarreled over how Ms. Miller was disciplining her daughter. During the argument at the Speedway Race Track, Ms. Miller threw her brother's grill to the ground, prompting Mr. Miller to push her with his chest. That action caused Ms. Miller to fall to the ground. Ms. Miller picked up the unwelcome houseguest, Ebony N. Burks, age 32, 232 14th Street, Elyria, OH, up from the Washington County Jail several days earlier and said she was no longer welcome because she was rude to everyone she met and would drink all day. Ms. Miller said her family members would not allow Ms. Burks to stay with them either. Questioned by Lt. Stackpole, Ms. Burks appeared intoxicated and said she'd been consuming vodka most of the day. Ms. Burks agreed to leave a Miller residence on Woodruff Road in Vincent and was transported by cab to the local bus station. However, the cab returned a short while later with Ms. Burks and the cab driver stated his passenger was refusing to pay the fare. Informed she was not permitted to remain at the residence, Ms. Burks replied “you're going to have to take me to jail, because I'm not going anywhere.” Lt. Stackpole then arrested Ms. Burks for disorderly conduct by intoxication and transported her to the Washington County Jail.

When the WD40 was wrestled away from him, the teenager attempted to squirt algaecide on everyone and hit Mr. Hughes in the eye with it. This case remains under investigation (126).

Ms. Fortney’s boyfriend said no threats were made and no altercation took place and stated he did not realize his girlfriend was on the phone when he was yelling. Based on his investigation, Sgt. Anderson closed this case as unfounded.

On 17 Jun 13 Deputy Sheriffs Holbert and Reeder responded to a domestic dispute at 2080 Wynncrest Drive, Marietta.
