On 14 Oct 13 an employee of Burt Buildings,
4815 State Route 339, Belpre, reported at some point during
the past day an unknown suspect(s) entered the business, removed
the cash from multiple cash boxes and stole and bank deposit
bag. In total, the suspect(s) stole in excess of $2,500. This

On 14 Oct 13 Sgt. Reeder requested summonses
for fourteen year old residents from Belpre, Little Hocking
and Marietta to appear in Juvenile Court for being delinquent.
After agreeing with three of the other teenagers the previous
week that they needed to take something to make themselves feel
good, the Marietta resident brought six Seroquel pills to Warren
High School. One of the Little Hocking residents ingested two
of the 300 mg pills, which left her extremely lethargic and
nearly unconscious. She was later treated at Marietta Memorial
Hospital for an overdose and released. Though she denied ingesting
a pill, witnesses confirmed the Belpre resident took one of
the pills. The other Little Hocking resident admitted being
given a pill but stated she disposed of it in a trash can. The
juveniles also face disciplinary action through the school.
On 14 Oct 13 Kevin W. Wagner, age 37, 60 Lock
Street, Lowell, reported he recently discovered an unknown suspect(s)
entered a garage he rents at 306 Third Street, Lowell. Mr. Wagner
said a number of boxes inside the garage were moved but the
only item he believes is missing is a ten year old computer.
This case remains under investigation (113).
On 14 Oct 13 the owner of Polk’s Market,
90 Railroad Street, Whipple, reported his business received
a total of thirty-eight bad checks from a single customer between
3 Apr 09 and 7 Dec 09. The store owner learned after the first
check was returned for insufficient funds that the customer’s
account was active but did not have any funds in it. In order
to avoid returned check fees from the bank, the owner continued
to accept the checks and was told by the customer’s church
pastor that the church would reimburse the store for the bad
checks. The church has since reportedly refused to pay the store
any money. The store owner received a partial payment for $763
from the customer roughly a year and a half ago but the customer
will no longer answer phone calls. After consulting the Prosecutor’s
Office, Deputy Sheriff Augenstein informed the store owner that
the statute of limitations for passing bad checks has passed
and the case was now a civil matter.
