On 10 Aug 13 Matthew McLeish, age 31, 424 Fifth Street, Lowell, reported he was outside his home after midnight when he saw an unknown male wearing dark clothing walking through his back yard. Seeing Mr. McLeish and others around a fire pit, the subject fled, leaving a roll of copper wiring on the ground. Later that morning Deputy Sheriff Carr responded to a breaking and entering at Morgan Mechanical, 11006 State Route 60, Lowell. The owner of the business stated sometime during the night an unknown suspect(s) cut the lock off a storage building and stole a length of copper lead wire. The owner was unsure if the lead wire that was recovered earlier belonged to him but there was an open hook in the building and it looked similar to others stored in the building. This case remains under investigation (129).

On 10 Aug 13 Deputy Sheriff McConnell and the Watertown, Barlow, Lowell, Warren and Beverly fire departments responded to a barn fire on property owned by Timothy Strahler, age 65, at 1213 Klinger Road, Waterford. A portion of the property stored in the barn was saved but the structure, numerous bales of hay and farm equipment were a total loss. The State Fire Marshal was contacted to attempt to ascertain the cause of the fire.

On 10 Aug 13 Donivan W. Heiss, age 75, 651 Lowell Hill Road, Waterford, reported he discovered what look like bullet holes in a light on his side porch. Only wanting the damage documented, Mr. Heiss declined to pursue the matter further (500).

On 10 Aug 13 the Fearing Fire Department transported Kim Young, age 51, 1853 W. Barry Avenue, Chicago, IL, to Marietta Memorial Hospital for treatment to severe burns on her hands and arms. Ms. Young was siphoning gasoline from a riding mower using a Shop Vac at her property at 1735 Glendale Road, Marietta, when the vacuum exploded and caught fire. While the Shop Vac melted, the mower was only slightly damaged. Ms. Young was later life-flighted to the Ohio State Medical Center for additional treatment (500).

On 10 Aug 13 a seventeen year old Marietta resident was jogging with a friend on Vanfossen Road in Lowell when a dog bit her on the back of her left thigh. The dog's owner said she just returned home from work and let the dog out without a leash because she could not find its collar. The teenager and her mother were satisfied with the owner's explanation and declined to pursue charges in the matter (594).

On 10 Aug 13 Christopher D. Miller, age 44, 408 Warren Street, Marietta, was backing his Dodge pickup truck in the parking lot of 40 McGrath Road, Macksburg, when he struck the rear of an enclosed trailer owned by Larry D.
