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

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.

THREE FELONY ARRESTS
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.
