On 26 Mar 14 Samuel Lisk, age 26, 1015 Browns Road, Marietta, reported he was awakened by an explosion around 6:20 am and observed an orange glow near the garage of his residence. Mr. Lisk attempted to extinguish the fire in the garage but was unsuccessful. The fire appears to have been caused by a malfunction in an engine block heater that Mr. Lisk used to keep his tractor’s engine temperature above fifty degrees. The Reno Fire Department responded and extinguished the fire, which caused moderate damage to the home (790).

On 26 Mar 14 Deputy Sheriff McConnell and the Coolville, Dunham and Little Hocking fire departments responded to a brush fire on the property of Luke C. Joseph, age 50, at 1006 Boggy Hollow Road, Coolville. Mr. Joseph was burning a pile of sticks when the wind blew a piece of burning cardboard onto dry grass in a nearby field. Mr. Joseph attempted to stomp out the fire but it quickly spread to the surrounding area. The fire departments extinguished the fire after it burnt parts of two fields and an old, round bale of hay.

On 26 Mar 14 Emilee Schwendeman, age 20, 211 Rummer Road Apt. C, Marietta, reported she recently noticed several items were stolen from her home. The stolen items are electric and acoustic guitars, a new pair of shoes, an iPod, a jacket and a camera. This case remains under investigation (132).


Yesterday evening Agents executed simultaneous search warrants at two homes in Marietta. One search warrant, executed at 165 Killwell Run Road, Marietta, resulted in the discovery of 1.73 grams of heroin packaged for sale in five unit doses and 3.88 grams of crack cocaine packaged for sale in nine unit doses. Present in the room where the drugs were found were Tytus L. Shields, age 25, Marietta, and Jamal Fuller, age 20, 406 S. Harris Avenue, Columbus. Shields and Fuller were last arrested in Marietta in January on drug charges and have a history of trafficking in drugs in the Washington County area. Task Force Agents noticed it appeared that Shields and Fuller broke down larger quantities of the heroin and cocaine into portions appropriate for sale. As a result of the search warrant, Agents arrested Shields and Fuller on a third degree charge of trafficking in heroin and a fourth degree felony charge of trafficking in heroin. Shields was also served with additional third and fourth degree felony counts of trafficking in heroin. On two occasions in January, Shields sold confidential informants a total of sixteen unit doses of heroin. Shields and Fuller remain incarcerated in the Washington County Jail I lieu of respective bonds of $40,000 and $20,000.

The second search warrant involved an associate of Shields, who Agents identified as Matthew J. Dagnesi, age 26, 304 Kenwood Avenue, Marietta. Dagnesi is a convicted felon out of the state of New York and is barred from possessing a firearm. Through investigative means, Agents learned Mr. Degnesi purchased a handgun from a local store. A search of Degnesi’s home yielded a chrome plated .380 handgun loaded with four rounds of ammunition. Agents subsequently arrested Degnesi on a third degree felony charge of having a weapon while under disability. Dagnesi remains incarcerated in the Washington County Jail in lieu of $5,000 bond.

The following individuals were processed into the Washington County Jail:

Timothy Nelson Carver Sr., age 50, 429 Strecker Lane, Marietta, for theft, a felony. Carver was arrested in Marietta by Patrolman Ellenwood of the Marietta City Police Department and processed into the Washington County Jail on 26 Mar 14 at 12:57 pm.

Katherine Fonseca, age 32, 1055 Lake Berkley, Kissimmee, FL, for illegal conveyance of items into a detention facility, possession of drugs and possession of criminal tools, all felonies.
