Case #22-007115

TRAFFIC - SR62 / South 15th Street

Cited: Jared Lyons, age 30, 2333 South Arch Avenue Alliance, Ohio

Charge: SCO 333.03 Speed(75/55)

At 0155 hours I, Patrolman Peterman #506, was performing saturation patrol traveling westward on SR 62 when I observed a motorcycle traveling eastward at a very high rate of speed.

Upon observation, I activated my vehicle mounted radar, and observed a speed of 85 and was still going up when I locked the radar in, and receiving a cleat and audible signal. I safely performed a U-turn while activating my emergency lights and audible siren.

The motorcycle stopped and pulled over near South 15th Street. I approached the vehicle, and called out the plate(JOG31) to dispatch. I exited my marked cruiser #303, and approached the operator of the motorcycle, Jared Lyons, and advised him of the stop.

Jared was respectful to me, and advised he had just purchased the bike, and was "testing it out". I asked Jared for is license and documentation, and he was able to procure me with said documents. Dispatch advised me that Jared was still under a motorcycle novice endorsement, and was required to be wearing a helmet until 10/07/2022. I reproached Jared and advised him that I would be cutting him a break, and giving him a warning for the helmet violation, and for his speed he would receive a citation for 75, instead of 85 in a 55mph zone.

I returned to my marked cruiser and wrote Jared on citation #032028 for speed SCO 333.03, advised Jared of his choices on how to contest the citation or pay it, then released Jared from the traffic stop.

I then cleared without further incident.

Charges:

ORC 4513.05 Taillights-Illuminating White to the Rear

Court: MCC #3 07/28/2022 @ 0900A.M.

On 07/22/2022 @ 0007 hours I was performing patrolling duties east bound on the 200 block of East Ohio Avenue when I observed a white Chevrolet bearing license plate HQQ4573 with a broken taillight that displayed a white light to the rear when it came to a stop at the traffic light on East Ohio Ave. and North l2th Street.

I ran the license plate through dispatch and was advised the owner of the vehicle also had a suspended license. I then activated my emergency lights and audible siren of marked cruiser #304, making a traffic stop with the vehicle on North 12' Street, near East Wisconsin Avenue. The vehicle came to a slow stop, eventually stopping near the north end of the village limits.

Ptl. Ray #508 arrived on scene as well at this time.

I advised dispatch of the stop, and approached the passenger side of the vehicle. I identified myself, and the reason for the stop of the broken taillight illuminating the white light to the rear. The driver, identified as the registered owner Alyssa Smith, states she knew of the damaged taillight. I then advised Alyssa she was also coming hack in our system as suspended. Alyssa stated to me she had her privileges on her, and procured a tattered document stating she was given driving privileges through Portage County. Upon speaking with dispatch, it was identified that she was suspended through Mahoning county, as well as Portage County.

I asked Sgt. Kelm #SO3 to come to the traffic stop as well, with him arriving a short time later. After speaking with the supervisor, it was determined that the vehicle wou9d be towed, and Alyssa be notified of her privileges being revoked. After telling Alyssa she would be receiving a citation for the suspension, and the vehicle be towed Alyssa became very verbally abusive towards officers, cursing at officers on several occasions. I advised Alyssa to grab any belongings she would need, and to call for a ride for her and her child. I returned to my cruiser and wrote a citation on #032027 for DUS(FRA) ORC 4510.11, and Taillights-Illuminating white light to rear ORC 4513.05. I approached the vehicle as Alyssa was grabbing her belongings, and I advised Alyssa of her citations. Alyssa stated she was refusing to sign, and I printed "Refused to sign" on the signature block of the citation.

Sgt. Kelm then cleared the scene.

Robert Uyselt arrived on scene to pick up Alyssa and her child as Springers Towing arrived for the vehicle. I handed Alyssa the copy of her citation, and of her mandatory court date of 07/28/2022. Alyssa took the citation, crumpled it into her hand, and appeared to throw it.

As I was about to perform a property inventory, Alyssa shouted to officers that she did not consent to any searches. I advised Alyssa that it was a property inventory, and she left the scene with Robert. After Springers Towing cleared, Officers cleared without further incident.

At approximately 18:15 hours on 07-22-2022, I obtained a warrant for the arrest of Jacob Fullerton. This warrant was for one first degree
felony count of Murder (ORC:2903.02).

At 19:11 hours on 07-22-2022 , Ptl. Brindack, Sgt. Kelm and I, Det. Reed, went to 755 W. Tennessee Avenue in an attempt to locate Jacob Fullerton.

Upon arriving to the residence, contact was made with Jacob's mother as well as her boyfriend in the driveway. Both said that Jacob was in the residence in an upstairs bedroom. Consent was received to enter the residence, with the three of us going inside and making contact with Jacob in his upstairs bedroom. I immediately secured Jacob in handcuffs, which were properly spaced and double-locked. I informed Jacob of his warrant as well as the nature of the charge before searching him incident to arrest. I also read him his Miranda Rights, which he said that he understood.

Jacob was then placed in the back of car #304, before being transported to The Sebring Police Department.

Once on station, he was photographed, his DNA collected, and the necessary paperwork for commitment to jail completed.

I then transported Jacob to The Mahoning County Justice Center.

Due to Jacob's behavior during the booking process, medical staff at the jail denied him and requested that a psychological assessment be completed before he be taken into their facility. Because of this I took
Jacob to St. Elizabeth's Health Center, with a psychological assessment being performed and it being determined that he was not a threat to himself. I then returned to the jail where Jacob was taken into their custody. NFI.

On 01/11/2022 this unit observed 2 individuals sitting on a bench in the South Side Park after dark.

Officer Ray #508 01/11/2022

On 01/11/2022, I, Officer Ray, was patrolling west Texas near the South Side Park, when I observed a male walking through the grass.

2 weeks prior I observed the same male walking through the park. The male was wearing a very distinct winter jacket, that I was able to identify both times. The jacket has a triangle geometric pattern with red, white, and blue colors. I turned my cruiser around in the parking lot for the tennis court.

I observed the male sitting on a picnic table with another individual. I stopped my cruiser in front of the community center.

As I exited my cruiser I heard the male yell something to me, but I was unable to make out what was said. As I approached the two individuals they stood up from the bench, and approached me. The male asked me "is there any place we can go that is not the park. She works at Copeland, and I meet her on breaks".

I stated to them that there is not too many places they can meet. I stated to the male that the two of them were trespassing, and that if everything came back ok I would let them sit at the park. At this point I asked them both if they had a drivers license. Both stated no. I asked the male if he knew what his social was. He gave me his social, but was very hesitant to provide that information.

His tone of voice, and body language made me suspicious. The male provided his name as Daniel Allmon. Next I asked the female for her social.

Without hesitation she provided the numbers plus her name, Caitlin Stump. Due to not being able to run socials over the radio I had to return to my cruiser to retrieve my phone. After retrieving my phone I contacted dispatch.

Due to the fact that the bench they were sitting at plus the distance I was away from the individuals I did not observe Daniel walking into the woods.

Dispatch advised me that Daniel had a warrant out of Trumbull County, and that they would take him. I approached the bench again, and observed only Caitlin sitting there. Caitlin stated to me that Daniel had walked away stating "he said he needed to pick his kids up." I asked Caitlin where he would be going, and she stated "I don't know, Salem". At this point I advised dispatch that the male had left. I requested assistance from Smith Township. We searched the area for Daniel, but were unable to locate.

Sgt. Kelm had started his shift, and we met at Royal Star. I advised Sgt. Kelm that the party possibly works at Copeland. Both units went to Copeland in an attempt to locate her.

Upon our arrival we made contact with an employee at the front desk to Copeland. She called the nursing stations, and she was able to locate the female at Crandall. We went over to Crandall, and we located Caitlin on the second floor. I asked Caitlin what she knew about Daniel, and she stated "not much". She continued to state that they are dating, and that she has not seen him in months. At this point I stated that I saw them both together 2 weeks ago. I continued by asking what Daniel's address was. Caitlin stated that she did not know. Realizing that Caitlin could / would not help us both units cleared.

Upon arriving back to Sebring PD it was made known to both units that Caitlin and Daniel share a residence at 825 Wade Ave in alliance. While on station I ran Daniel's social through OHLEG. I was able to see his BMV picture. and was able to identify that it was in fact the male I made contact with in the park.

Nothing further at this time. On my next shift I will speak to the prosecutor about getting warrants on Daniel for trespassing and obstruction.

At 15:11 hours on 06-20-2022, l was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303. While in the 200 block of N. 12th Street, I conducted a random registration check of a maroon Chevrolet Cobalt (OH Reg JKZ 5573). The registration showed that the owner of the vehicle was Amanda M. Anderson, who had only an identification card and not a driver license. The vehicle then turned right and began eastbound in the 400 block of E. Ohio Avenue. At this point, f activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop.

 

The vehicle came to a stop in front of Kellogg's Tax Services, located at 506 E. Ohio Avenue.

Amanda handed me her identification card as well as the passenger's. which showed him to be Bane E. Kjerrumgaard.

 

I then returned to my patrol car, where I relayed both Amanda's and Bane's information to dispatch. It was again confirmed that Amanda did not have a driver license, with Bane showing as having an active warrant for his arrest through Summit County. Because of this, Sgt. Kelm, who had been riding with me, asked Bane to exit the vehicle. I placed Bane in handcuffs, which were properly spaced and doublelocked, and informed him that he was being detained until it could be determined if the issuing agency wanted to take custody of him. Bane was then secured in the back of car 303.

 

After it was determined that Barberton did not want to take custody of Bane, I began writing Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032291 to Amanda. I cited Amanda for driver license required (SCO: 335.01).

 

Amanda also at this time admitted that she did not have insurance on the vehicle.

Cited: Sierra Harris, 19, 236 Alabama Ave. Apt # 10, Sebring, OH

Charges:
SCO: 335.09 Display of License Plates (MM)
SCO: 335.01 Driver License Required

At 11:01 hours on 05-30-2022, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303. While eastbound in the 300 block of E. Oregon Avenue, I observed a blue Ford Escape, that was traveling in front of me, fail to signal within 100 feet of the intersection before turning right onto N. 12th Street. As I followed behind the vehicle, I also noted that there was no registration visible. Once the vehicle crossed the railroad tracks, I activated my patrol car's overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop.

Once I was able to get within approximately 15 feet of the vehicle, I was able to noticed an Ohio Temporary Registration (P213593) in the back window. Due to how dark the window was I was not able to see the correct numerics until I had exited my vehicle. I then approached and made contact with the driver, who identified herself as Sierra M. Harris. I asked Sierra for her driver license, as well as informed her of the reason for the stop. Sierra said that she was just in a hurry to get home, and that she did not have her driver license on her. When I asked if she had a valid driver license she said that she did and that she just didn't have it with her.

After obtaining Sierra's name, date of birth, and the last four of her social security number, I returned to my patrol car where I relayed the information to dispatch. At this time, it was discovered that Sierra did not have a valid driver license, with her only having a temporary learners permit.

I then returned to Sierra's vehicle, where I informed her of this. Sierra said that she knew that she needed a valid driver with her and that she was just trying to go home. She also late admitted to me that she did not have insurance on the vehicle.

I then returned to my patrol car, where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032288. I cited Sierra for Driver License Required (SCO:335.01)) as well as Display of license Plates (SCO:335.09). Sierra was instructed to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for information on when to appear for her mandatory court appearance. She signed her citation, and was given her copy.

Several minutes later, Subject arrived, who was determined to have a valid driver license, and rode with Sierra away from the scene. Nothing additional to report at this time.

On 28May22 While on Patrol in the Sebring Police Department I observed a Blue 1998 Dodge Neon(HWU5836) pull into the Sebring Police Department parking lot at 135 E Ohio Ave. I then received a call from Dispatch to come to the Police Station for a possible Domestic.

Upon arrival I , (Ptl. Melendez), made contact with Deborah Durm  in the Sebring PD lobby.

While speaking to Durm she advised that her husband punched out her car window. I then asked if she could fill out a statement while I went to her residence to speak to her husband.

Upon arrival at the Durm residence 173 E Maryland Ave Benjamin walked out of his residence and advised me that he did in fact break the car window because he did not want his wife driving under the influence since she had just smoked Methamphetamine prior to getting in the vehicle. Benjamin advised that he had been arguing with his wife because she was driving around under the influence and he wanted her to stay at the residence once they had arrived home.

Sebring Fire was also contacted for a cut Benjamin sustained from breaking the window out.

I then cleared and returned back to the Sebring Police department to continue speaking with Deborah. I also requested Sgt. Starr of the Smith Township Police Department to meet me at Sebring PD. While speaking to Deborah I observed that her pupils were very constricted and her speech was slurred. I then asked Deborah if she had used any drugs and she advised that she did in fact smoke Methamphetamine but that she only took one "Hit".

I then asked Deborah if she would be comfortable with me conducting SFST's on her in the Lobby and she stated yes.

CHARGES:
4511.22A Slow Speed - Impeding Traffic
4510.11A DUS (Court)
4503.11 Expired Registration
4549.08 Fictitious Tag

On 5/17/2022 at approx. 0145 1 observed a black Pontiac Torrent back out of a driveway and head EB on RT. 62 in front of me between Johnson rd & 15th St.

The vehicle was traveling at a low speed for the roadway and when the driver noticed me behind them they made an abrupt turn into a residence to the left with little warning. The driver turned off all the lights on the vehicle.

I know the vehicle did not belong to that residence because I was just there with Smith TWP the night prior.

The resident there has been having issues with another party so I called PTL. Rhome of Smith TWP PD. I turned into Western Reserve Auto and observed the vehicle back up with no lighting on except the brake lights and reverse lights. They then turned the lights on and reversed into the roadway in front of another vehicle traveling the speed limit (55 MPH). The vehicle was able to brake and not strike the Pontiac. They headed WB back into the village limits on 62, traveling 35 MPH in a 55 MPH zone obstructing traffic. I followed.

When the vehicle approached the parking lot of the Oak Ridge Motel, they slowed to a near stop and made an abrupt turn into the parking lot and parked across two spaces.

I initiated my emergency lights and pulled up behind the vehicle. The reverse lights of the vehicle came on and the driver's door opened. I called for an additional unit and PTL. Rhome responded. I ordered the driver back into the vehicle twice as he argued stating he was just looking for a room.

Upon making a passenger side approach to the vehicle, I noticed the expiration sticker did not look right on the vehicle. I spoke to the driver and passenger. Their story did not add up about why they seemed to be attempting to evade me or the slow speed. They stated they were lost looking for a place to stay when they have established residency in Alliance and Canton.

PTL. Rhome arrived and he gathered information from the driver and passenger and they advised they were both suspended. Due to the driver's (Jacob) driving behavior and the odor of alcoholic beverage coming from the vehicle I asked him to step out. He complied, stating that the passenger, (Morgan Thomas), was the one that was drinking. He agreed to complete SFSTs.

I turned off the front facing flashing lights of my patrol car and completed SFSTs with no signs of impairment.

After questioning who's vehicle it was and if they had the registration, they stated they did not have the registration but it was Morgan's Father's vehicle. The plate returned to Roger Thomas but it was expired and registered to a 2006 Ford which did not match. Upon closer inspection of the plate it was discovered that the expiration sticker was homemade and hand written poorly.

The VIN number was then given to dispatch and it returned expired to the driver. Springer's was notified to tow the vehicle.

The driver was cited for the slow speed, DUS, and the expired registration as well as the fictitious plate.

An inventory was completed of the vehicle and was noted on a tow sheet, signed by the tow operator.

The occupants were picked up by Roger Thomas.

After the vehicle was towed, I cleared.

Upon activating the patrol car's front-facing radar antenna, I obtained a locked speed of 52 MPH.

As the vehicle approached closer, I activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights, allowed the truck to pass me, and then turned around to initiate a traffic stop. The truck, a 2011 Ford F-350 bearing Ohio Registration PKA 8853, came to a stop at the village limits.

Upon approaching and making contact with the driver, I informed him of the reason for the stop as well as asked for his driver license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. The driver produced an Ohio Driver License that showed him to be Caleb Yoder as well as proof of insurance, but was unable to locate his vehicle registration.

As the vehicle approached closer, I activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights. Once the vehicle passed me, I turned the patrol car around, and initiated a traffic stop.

On this date at around 22:30 while on patrol I noticed a suspicious vehicle a blue Toyota bearing OH HXX9140 parked behind the library 195 W Ohio Ave. which at the time was closed. Initially it appeared the vehicle was unoccupied however as I used the spotlight in my patrol car to illuminate the vehicle I noticed to individuals who were reclined in the car stick their heads up. I made contact with the two identified as Justin D Joplin and Kimberly N Narney both out of Akron and informed them of the reason for our interaction and asked them what they were doing at the closed library. Justin advised they were using the wifi at the library.

At this point Det. Reed arrived and we asked Kimberly if she would be willing to exit the vehicle and speak with us separately. Kimberly agreed and exited and started speaking with me. She advised a similar story and they were in Sebring to help a friend who had just moved to town.

At this point Ptl. Peterman arrived and continued speaking with Kimberly. I joined Det. Reed and began speaking with Justin who was still seated in the vehicle as we were speaking with him Det. Reed and I noticed several items commonly associated with the use of narcotics, including torch lighters and a stick that could be used for a pipe. We asked Justin for consent to search the vehicle and he said there is nothing in here except this at which point he willing produced a small green bad which had marihuana residue in it.

At this point we advised Justin to exit the vehicle and began a search of the vehicle for further contraband.

In the bag belonging to Kimberly we located a "shoot up kit" which included 3 syringes, a make shin tourniquet made from a phone charger and several other misc. items. we also located a small glass jar with white residue which Kimberly indicated was Meth. We also located a bag of marijuana and numerous items of marijuana paraphernalia. Kimberly also willingly showed us a bag in the trunk which contained a glass smoking pipe used for the inhalation of methamphetamine and plastic tubing which she said is used attach to the pipe "incognito" smoking while in public places.

Due to Kimberly being so cooperative I opted to not arrest her on scene and to issue summons for her to appear in court. Kimberly will be issued a summons for 2925.12 drug abuse instruments and the jar with residue will be sent out for testing. No charges will be filed concerning the marijuana or marijuana paraphernalia.

At 20:09 hours on 05-10-2022, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 304. While stationary in the parking lot of B.L. Miller Elementary School, located at 506 W. Virginia Avenue, I observed a dark gray Kia sedan traveling eastbound in the 600 block of W. Virginia Avenue. The vehicle began rapidly accelerating, to a rate of speed that appeared to be substantially higher than that of the posted 25 MPH speed limit. Upon activating the patrol car's front-facing radar antenna, I observed a speed of 38 MPH on the device's digital readout. The vehicle then began to slow as it approached the stop sign at N. 20th Street and W. Virginia Avenue, with a locked speed of 32 MPH being obtained.

The vehicle then turned right, going southbound on N. 20th Street. At this point I activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights, and initiated a traffic stop. The vehicle, a gray Kia Forte, bearing Ohio Registration HLQ 7357, came to a stop just before the Nazarene Church.

Upon approaching and making contact with the driver, he immediately said "I know why you're stopping me". When I asked the driver why he was driving the way he was in a residential neighborhood, he said that he had just finished working on his car and was "making sure it was alright". I then requested his driver license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. The driver produced an Ohio Driver License, that showed him to be Ronald W.

TRAFFIC - 100 Block E. Oregon Ave. Sebring, OH

Cited: Jerry Quinn, 80, 206 E. Wisconsin Ave. Sebring, OH

Charge: SCO: 333.08 Operation W/O Reasonable Control

At 1657 hours on 05-09-2022, I was dispatched to a report of a motor vehicle crash in front of The Oregon Pub, located at 135 E. Oregon Ave. Upon arriving to the scene, I observed a white Chrysler 2005, bearing Ohio Registration CRK 3625, that had sideswiped a green Chevrolet Silverado, bearing Ohio Registration JJK 1339. Both vehicles were in the eastbound lane of travel, with the green Silverado being parked along the roadside. I also noted that the incident occurred directly in front of 125 E. Oregon Avenue, and not the Oregon Pub as originally relayed.

Upon exiting my vehicle, I made contact with the involved parties, who were standing beside the vehicles. The driver of the Chrysler 200 was a Jerry Lee Quinn. Also present was Jenifer Brooks, the registered owner of the Silverado, and Thomas Brooks. In speaking with Jennifer and Thomas, they informed me that they were sitting on the porch at 125 E. Oregon Avenue, and that they witnessed Jerry travel off of the roadway and strike Jennifer's truck. As I spoke with Jennifer and Thomas, I noted that Jerry's Chrysler had disabling damage. The passenger side front tire had nearly been pulled from the vehicle when it hit the truck.

I did photograph the scene and damage to the vehicles at this time.

I then began speaking with Jerry, who informed me that he had become distracted when he seen Jennifer and Thomas's granddaughter run off of the porch of the residence that they were at. Jerry said that he believed the child was going to run onto the roadway, and that this pulled his attention away from driving, causing him to leave the roadway and strike the parked truck.

I then requested identification from all involved parties, as well as insurance information. Jerry was able to produce an Ohio Driver License as well as a valid Nationwide Insurance Card. Jerry also asked me to call Sebring Tire to have his vehicle towed from the scene. It should be noted that while I was speaking with Jerry, I asked him if he had consumed any alcohol or anything that would inhibit his ability to operate a motor vehicle. Jerry said that he had not, and no indicators of impairment were observed. Jennifer was able to produce an Ohio Driver License, with her telling me that she did not have valid insurance on her vehicle.

Thomas provided me with an Ohio Identification Card.

I then returned to my patrol car where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032283. I cited Jerry for Operation Without Reasonable Control (SCO: 333.08). Jerry signed the citation, was given his copy, and instructed to contact Mahoning County Court #3 within the next several business days for instructions on how to contest the citation or pay it if he wished to do so. Sebring Tire then arrived and towed the vehicle to their lot.

Once Sebring Tire arrived and towed the vehicle, I cleared from the call. I did provide Jerry with a courtesy ride back to his residence. NFI.

The white Nissan NV-200, bearing New Jersey Registration Z64LSL, then crossed N. Johnson Road before pulling over and stopping. Upon approaching and making contact with the driver, I informed him of the reason for the stop as well as asked him if he was aware of his speed.

The driver was able to produce the requested documentation with his Ohio Driver License showing him to be Dylan Jeffrey Joseph Householder.

I then returned to my patrol car where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032281. I cited Householder for speeding (SCO: 333.03), for going 52 in a marked 35 MPH zone.

Court MCC #3 05-05-2022 @ 09:00

At approximately 20:20 hours on 04-30-2022, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 304.

While sitting in the driveway of the police station, located at 135 E. Ohio Avenue, I observed a black Pontiac G6 that was traveling westbound on Ohio Avenue at an unusually slow speed. The vehicle then turned right onto N. 15th Street, before pulling into a driveway in the 300 block of N. 15th. I then went to the Huntington Bank building, located at 146 E. Ohio Avenue, where I parked to continue conducting traffic enforcement.

Several minutes later, I observed the same black Pontiac, this time turning left onto Ohio Avenue from N. 15th Street. As the vehicle drove past me, I noticed that the exhaust was extremely loud. I then pulled onto the roadway, activated my patrol car's overhead emergency lights, and initiated a traffic stop. I noted that the vehicle was slow to stop, with it finally stopping in the 200 block of E. Ohio Avenue.

Upon approaching the black 66, bearing Ohio Resistration JIF 7287, I made contact with the driver. I informed him of the reason for the stop as well as requested his driver license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. The driver was only able to produce his Ohio Driver License, which showed him to be Eric M. Greathouse. I also at this point noted that despite it being after sunset, Greathouse was wearing sunglasses.

In addition to speaking with Greathouse, I spoke with the vehicle's passenger, Matthew Krohn, with him also providing me with his identification.

After determining that Greathouse had a valid driver license, I returned to his vehicle. Pt. Russell had arrived to my location at this time as well. At this point, I asked Greathouse for consent to search his vehicle. Greathouse granted this request, with him going to the rear of the vehicle along with Krohn.

As I began my search of the vehicle, I located a 12oz can of Milwaukee's Best Light in the center console. The can was approximately 1/8 full and cold to the touch. What appeared to be beer was filling the bottom of the center console. The rest of the search yielded no further contraband.

I then asked Greathouse how long the can had been in the vehicle, and how much he had drank this evening. Greathouse stated "too much". He also then said that he was joking, and that he had only consumed two beers earlier in the evening. As I approached closer to Greathouse, I could smell the odor of an alcoholic beverage, emanating from his person. Ptl. Russell also noted this. At this point, I asked Greathouse if he was willing to perform Standardized Field Sobriety Tests (SFST'S), with him agreeing to do so. Ptl. Russell then walked with Greathouse and I to the front of my patrol car, where the frontfacing lightbar was turned off. I asked Greathouse if he had any issues with his eyes or took any prescription medications. Greathouse said yes, he takes Prozac. He also said that he wears contact lenses, and that they sometimes "pop out".

I then began the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus Test. Using my flashlight in a downward angle for illumination, I held my right pointer finger approximately 12" from Greathouse's eyes. I instructed Greathouse to focus on and to follow my finger with his eyes, his eyes only, and not to move his head.

At this point I noted no resting nystagmus. I then noted that both eyes tracked equally. As I continued the test, in both eyes, I noted lack of smooth pursuit, onset of nystagmus prior to 45degrees, as well as distinct and sustained nystagmus at maximums deviation.

I then began the Walk-and-Turn Test. I instructed Greathouse to put his right foot in front of his left foot, keep his arms at his side, and not to begin the test until instructed to do so, seeing as I was going to demonstrate it for him first. I then instructed Greathouse that on my command, he is to take nine heel-to-toe steps along an imaginary straight line, counting out loud, before turning and walking nine, heel-to-toe steps back. I also clearly demonstrated how to pivot on the ninth step. During the instructional phase of the test, I had to reiterate not to start until instructed to do so no less than five times, this being because Greathouse continued attempting to perform the test without being told to.

Once he was given the command to start the test, I noted that Greathouse stepped off the line, struggled to maintained balance, did not count the steps out loud, as well as did not touch heel-to-toe.

I then began the One-Leg-Stand Test. I instructed Greathouse to keep his arms at his side, and that on my command to take the foot of his choosing, lift it six inches off of the ground, while counting in a onethousand-one, one-thousand-two fashion until told to stop.

Upon being instructed to begin, Greathouse began swaying, struggling to maintain his balance, and was unable to perform the test. At this point, I informed him that he was under arrest for OVI. Greathouse was secured in handcuffs, which were properly spaced and double-locked, before being secured in the back f,car 304. It should be noted that Ptl. Russell witnessed all SFST'S as they were being performed.

Sebring Tire was then called to tow the vehicle to their impound lot. The Ohio State Highway Patrol was also summoned to perform the breathalyzer test. Once back on station, 1 read the BMV 2255 Form to Greathouse, with him following along and signing it afterwards. Trooper Joshua Yeager, of the Lisbon Post of The Ohio State Highway Patrol then arrived on station to perform the breathalyzer test. After completing the test, Greathouse was found to have a Blood Alcohol Concentration of 0.255. Greathouse also provided a urine specimen for lab analysis.

Greathouse was then fingerprinted and photographed. He received Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032279, which listed his charges of OVI (ORC: 4511,19(A)(l)(a)), OVI High Tier (ORC: 4511.19(A)(l)(h), as well as loud exhaust (ORC: 4513.22). In addition to this, Greathouse received Minor Misdemeanor Citation No. 000265 for open container (ORC: 4301.62). Greathouse signed all of his citations, received his copies, and was informed of his mandatory appearance at Mahoning County Court #3 at 09:OO on May 5,2022.

It was also made explicitly clear to Greathouse that his driver license was under an Administrative
License Suspension until at least his first court appearance. After being processed, Greathouse was released on a $1,000.00 own recognizance bond. Amanda Thacker arrived to take him home and ensure that he made it safely. Nothing additional to report at this time.

CITED: Eugene Dieffenbaugher, 45, 9532 Middlebranch Ave. NE Canton, OH

Charge: ORC: 4510.11 Driving Under Suspension (OVI)

At 19:17 hours on 04-30-2022, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 304. While patroling in the 300 block of E. Indiana Avenue, approaching the intersection of N. 13th Street, I conducted a random registration check on a white Pontiac G6, bearing Ohio Registration HQB 8090, that was traveling in front of me. Immediately after relaying the vehicle's information, I noted that it failed to signal within 100 feet of turning at the intersection of E. Indiana Avenue and N. 141h Street. This being as the vehicle made a right turn at that intersection.

Upon seeing this, I activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop. I was also advised by dispatch at this time that the vehicle was registered to a Eugene K. Dieffenbaugher, whose driving status was suspended and who had an active warrant out of Stark County. The suspension was an OVI suspension and that warrant was for county of want only.

The vehicle came to a stop on N. 14th Street at E. Virginia Avenue. Upon approaching the vehicle, I made contact with the driver, who identified himself as Eugene Dieffenbaugher. I informed Oieffenbaugher of the reason for the traffic stop as well as asked him to turn the vehicle off and exit. Dieffenbaugher complied with this request, with him also allowing me to pat him down and search his pockets. No weapons or contraband was located during this search.

I then requested Dieffenbaugher's driver license and proof of insurance, with him telling me that he did not have insurance on the vehicle and also didn't have a driver license card.

I then instructed Dieffenbaugher to remain outside of the vehicle, while I returned to my patrol car to write his citation. Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032278 was then issued to Dieffenbaugher, who was cited for driving under suspension (OVI). Diefenbaugher signed the citation, was given his copy, and informed of his mandatory court appearance at Mahoning County Court #3 at 09:00 on May 05,2022.

Sebring Tire was then called, with an inventory of the vehicle being performed. No items of value were located. Due to Dieffenbaugher driving while under an OVI suspension, a hold was placed on the vehicle until his court appearance, with him being informed of this. Diffenbaugher was then released from the stop.

Sebring Tire arrived and towed the vehicle to their impound lot, with me clearing afterwards.

On 04/30/2022, I Officer Ray, was sitting in the Huntington Parking lot observing the intersection of Ohio and 15th. As a silver Saturn was passing by me, I observed what appeared to be an expired sticker (yellow) on the rear plate of the vehicle. I put my cruiser in drive, and followed the vehicle in an attempt to verify that the plate was expired. As we neared the intersection of Ohio and 12th Street, I observed the vehicle to not have a plate light. I activated my overhead lights, and the vehicle came to a stop in front of the court house. As I approached the vehicle, I observed that the plate sticker was in fact expired. Showing from October 2021.

I approached the vehicle from the passenger side, identified who I was, and the reason for the stop. The driver was identified as Heather Bell. Heather stated that the registration was not expired due to her not having a birthday in 2022 yet. I attempted to explain to her that the registration expires the year that is listed, and not the following year. Heather did not understand that concept. Heather then stated that the registration was renewed, and that the sticker was what the BMV gave her. I advised Heather to contact someone for a ride due to the vehicle being towed.

Dispatch was advised to send a tow. Springers arrived on scene, and took the vehicle. I conducted an inventory of the vehicle, and found nothing, Misc junk, and junk mail.

Charges:
ORC: 4510.11 Driving Under Suspension (Non-Compliance)
ORC: 4511.12 Obey Traffic Control Devices

At 00:27 hours on 04-18-2022, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 302. While stationary observing the intersection of W. Ohio Avenue and N. Johnson Road, I observed a maroon Toyota sedan, that was traveling eastbound on W. Ohio, proceed through the intersection without coming to a complete stop. Based upon my training and experience, I estimated the vehicle to be moving at approximately 10 MPH when it went trough the intersection. I then pulled onto the roadway, activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights, and initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle.

It should be noted that the vehicle was slow to stop, with me having to activated my audible siren several times before it stopped at the intersection of W. Ohio Avenue and N. l9th Street.

Upon approaching the maroon Toyota Corolla, bearing Ohio Registration HZC 9083,l made contact with the male driver. I informed the driver of the reason for the stop, with him saying that he realized he had run the stop sign, and that he was having a bad night. I then requested his driver license as well as vehicle registration. The driver informed me that he did not have either with him. I then asked if he had a valid license, with him telling me that he had just been stopped by The Alliance Police Department, his license was suspended, and that they had cited him. The driver then gave me his name (Daniel Pasco-Windland), date of birth, and social security number.

Upon returning to my patrol car, I relayed Pasco-Windland's information to dispatch, with it being
confirmed that his driver license was suspended. I then drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032222. I cited Pasco-Windland for driving under suspension (ORC: 4510.11), as well as obeying traffic control devices (ORC: 4511.12).

Upon returning to Paso-Windland's vehicle, he signed the citation and was given his copy. I also at this point instructed Pasco-Windland to exit the vehicle, because it was going to be towed.

Upon informing Pasco-Windland of this, he reached his right hand between the center console and driver seat, began shuffling around, and then reached into his front right coat pocket. I could not see what he had retrieved, with me ordering him out of the vehicle. Due to the threat to officer safety, I asked for and received consent from Windland to conduct a pat-down of his person. Pasco-Windland then said it had been his nicotine that he put in his pocket.

When I asked if I could enter his pockets to be sure that it was only nicotine that he had retrieved, Paso-Windland said "yeah". At this point I located a plastic container, which contained a light-colored crystalline substance, small spoon, box cutter blade, and rolled up dollar bill. Based upon my training and experience, the light-colored crystalline substance appeared to be methamphetamine.

I then secured Pasco-Windland in handcuffs, which were properly spaced and double-locked, before securing him in the back of car 302. It should be noted that I informed Pasco-Windland that he was only being detained at that point and was not under arrest. I then completed an inventory of the vehicle, locating nothing of value and no additional contraband.

Ptl. Rhome, of The Smith Township Police Dept. also arrived to my location at this time. At this point, I decided that the suspected methamphetamine would be sent to The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations (BCI) Crime Lab, instead of it being field tested. Because of this, Pasco-Windland was released from detention and sent on his way. Pasco-Windland was informed of his mandatory court appearance at Mahoning County Court #3 at 09:00 on 04-18-2022. Sebring Tire then arrived and towed his vehicle, with both Ptl. Rhome and I clearing from the stop afterwards.

Once back on station, I photographed the suspected methamphetamine as well as drug paraphernalia. I also weight the suspected methamphetamine, with it not registering on the department scale. The contraband items were then secured in temporary evidence locker #1. Additional charges possible pending laboratory results.

Nothing additional to report at this time.

Upon approaching the vehicle, I made contact with the male driver, who I know to be Ryan Bandy. When I informed Ryan of the reason for the stop, he said that he did not know that his driver license was suspended. Ryan was unable to produce proof of insurance and informed me that he did not have his driver license with him. Due to Ryan's body language being indicative of nervousness, I asked him to step out of the vehicle. Once Ryan was out of the vehicle, I observed a folding pocket knife in his left pant pocket. I did take control of this item for the duration of our encounter.

I then returned to my patrol car, where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032224. I cited Ryan for Driving Under Suspension (ORC: 4510.11). At approximately this time, Ptl. Russell arrived on scene as well. It was also found that the registration that was affixed to Ryan's truck belonged on a 2013 Silverado.

At 16:13 hours on 04-03-2022, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 302. While stationary along the roadside in the 300 block of Courtney Road, I observed a silver Chevrolet Silverado, traveling eastbound on Courtney Road, at a rate of speed that appeared to be substantially higher than that of the posted 35 MPH speed limit. Upon activating the patrol car's front-facing radar antenna, I obtained a locked speed of 57 MPH. Upon noticing my patrol car, the vehicle began slowing.

As the vehicle approached close, nearing the point of passing my position, I activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights, pulled onto the roadway, and initiated a traffic stop. The Silverado, which had Ohio Registration HVZ 5597 attached, came to a stop approximately 100 yards east of the railroad tracks. I then approached, made contact with the driver, and informed him of the reason for the stop. I then requested his driver license, vehicle registration, as well as proof of insurance.

The driver identified himself as James R. Carsone, but said that he had misplaced his driver license some time ago. He was however able to provide me with proof of insurance as well as his vehicle registration. Mr. Carsone provided me with his date of birth and offered to allow me to see credit cards that he had to verify his identity.

I then returned to my patrol car, where I relayed Mr. Carson's information to dispatch with it being found that he had two convictions for moving violations within the past 12 months.

On 20March22 I conducted a Traffic Stop In front of 356 N 12th St. Prior to conducting the traffic stop I, (Ptl Melendez), requested a check on Ohio registration (JDB7445). While waiting for a return in the left turning lane on E Ohio Ave and N 12th St I observed a white cloud of smoke coming out of the rear driver side window of the gold 2003 Chevy Impala.

While still waiting for the light turn turn green Sebring Dispatch advised that the owner of the vehicle Deonah Stewart was Suspended.

Upon receiving that information I then conducted a traffic stop with my marked patrol vehicle 302 in front of 356 N 12th St for Window tint and also for the drivers operators license being suspended.

Upon exiting my patrol vehicle I observed a white females face in the drivers side mirror. prior to getting to the drivers side door the white female later identified as Janessa N. Daugherty smiled in the mirror and she pressed the accelerator and proceeded north on 12th St. I then returned back to my patrol vehicle and advised Sebring Dispatch that the vehicle attempted to flee. While sti11 traveling north on 12th St I advised dispatch to start another unit and dispatch advised that Det. Reed of the Smith Township police Department was in route. I then continued to pursue the vehicle north bound on 12th St. The vehicle then turned left going west bound on Middletown Road speeds reached 70MPH with no traffic. The Vehicle then turned left traveling south on Johnson Rd in smith township heading back to The Village Of Sebring.

At this time Det. Reed advised that he was at the intersection of Courtney Rd and North Johnson, while still traveling south on Johnson the vehlcle then tuned right on Courtney traveling west bound almost hitting Det. Reeds patrol vehicle.

Dispatch was then advised to contact OSP and also Alliance Police, the vehicle continued west on Courtney Rd with light traffic conditions and speeds were 70 MPH. Det. Reed then took over calling our location out since he was the secondary unit and I was primary. The vehicle continued west on Courtney Road passing Oyster Rd., speeds were approximately 50 MPH. The Vehicle then turned left on to Jennings Rd traveling Southbound to River St. where it continued to North Walnut.

At this time the Speeds were approaching 70 Mph while still traveling on Walnut Ave the vehicle then turned onto E Keystone St In Alliance. Upon approaching the intersection of Keystone and Union Ave the vehicle ran a red light almost ramming a white utility truck. Sebring Dispatch then advised per Sqt Kelm to terminate the pursuit. I then advised that the pursuit was terminated. After ending the pursuit advised Sebring dispatch to contact Stark County Sheriffs and also Canton Police since the vehicle returns to a Canton address and I returned back to the Sebring Police Department.

At 1935 Hours I was advised by Sebring Dispatch that Canton PD had the vehicle stopped with two subjects detained in canton at the intersection of 19th St and Harrisburg Road. I then contacted Sgt. Kelm and advised him of what was going on. Sgt. Kelm then advised to go meet with the officers in canton and attempt to see if they had the driver. I then advised dispatch and I traveled to Canton where I met with Ptl. Brown and Ptl. Hampton of Canton PD who had the two males detained. Both males advised that a female friend by the name of Breanna Wilson let them drive the vehicle 15 minutes prior to being stopped. I then advised the CPD officers that my driver was a light skinned female.

While talking with Brown and Hampton Stark County advised that they made contact with the owner of the vehicle and that they were going to meet with her at 3827 Kirby Ave NE in Canton. I then advised Sebring Dispatch that I was going to meet with the owner of the vehicle.

Upon making contact with the owner of the vehicle myself and Deputy Green for Stark County SO asked her to walk over to my patrol vehicle to answer some questions. Prior to asking Stewart any questions I read her Miranda and she advised that she would comply and answer all questions. Stewart began to deny any involvement in the pursuit and she advised that a friend identified as Daugherty was the person operating the vehicle and that she also had text messages to prove it. I then obtained the text messages from Stewart that showed Daugherty was operating the vehicle at the time of the pursuit and also how Daugherty stated that she was going to wipe the vehicle down and also change the color of the vehicle. I then asked Stewart if she could provide a written statement and she complied.

At 1759 hours on 03-17-2022,l was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303 with Ptl. Ossler.

While traveling northbound in the 300 block of S. Johnson Road, I observed what was clearly an offroad motorcycle, turn from W. Tennessee Ave. onto S. Johnson Road. The motorcycle began traveling northbound at a high rate of speed. At this point, I activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights and audible siren.

The motorcycle turned left onto W. California Avenue, continuing on at a high rate of speed. The Motorcycle continued on, going to Tennessee Avenue, before coming to a stop.

Upon approaching and making contact with the driver, identified by his Ohio Driver License as Levi Campbell, he advised that he stopped as soon as noticed our patrol car behind him. Campbell was found to have a suspended driver license. The Motorcycle was also found to be an early 2000's model Honda CR-125. There was no license plate attached to the vehicle nor was it registered for on-road operation.

I then returned to the patrol car, where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032212. I cited Campbell for Driving Under Suspension (ORC: 4510.11), as well as Acts Prohibited (ORC:4519.40) for operating an off-highway motorcycle on a public roadway. Sebring Tire was then called to tow the motorcycle, with their wrecker arriving shortly after. It should be noted that the vehicle's VIN number was checked through LEADS to determine that it had not been entered as stolen.

Campbell then signed the citation, was given his copy, and informed of his mandatory court appeared at Mahoning County Court #3 at 09:00 hours on 03-24-2022. Both units then cleared from the stop. NFI.

CHARGE: ORC:4511.203  Wrongful Entrustment

 

 

At 17:22 hours on 03-12-2022, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 302. While in the parking lot of Circle K, located at 205 E. Ohio Avenue, I conducted a random registration check of a red Ford Escape that was in the business's parking lot. The vehicle's license plate, JGK 6756, returned to a Megan Cutlip, from Youngstown, Ohio. The registration showed that it belonged on a maroon Ford station Wagon and had expired on 01-17-2022.  I then pulled into the parking lot of Gionino's Pizza, located directly across N. 14th Street from Circle K, and watched as the red Escape drove from the parking lot of Circle K and began northbound on N. 14th Street.

 

I then activated my patrol car's overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop. The vehicle came to a stop on N. 14th Street, approximately 20 yards from the intersection with E. Maryland Avenue. I made a passenger side approach and made contact with the male driver and female front seat passenger. I informed the driver of the reason for the stop as well as asked for his driver license. He at this point informed me that his driver license was suspended, with him then producing an Ohio Identification Card that showed him to be Michael Franks.

 

The female passenger was able to provide me with an Ohio driver license that showed her to be Megan Cutlip, the registered owner of the vehicle.  Cutlip did also say that she was aware that Franks's driving privileges were suspended when she allowed him to drive her vehicle.

 

Ptl. Ray also arrived to my location at around this time.

 

I then returned to my patrol car, where I was able to confirm that Franks was in fact under an OVI suspension. Cutlip's driving privileges were suspended as well. Once I confirmed the suspension, I returned to the subject vehicle and instructed both parties to begin calling for a ride because I was going to have the vehicle towed. I then returned to my patrol car again, where I began drafting Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032210 for Mr. Franks, which was for driving under suspension (ORC: 4510.11), as well as expired vehicle registration (ORC: 4503.21). I also wrote Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032211 to Cutlip, who was cited for Wrongful Entrustment of a Motor Vehicle (ORC: 4511.203). While writing these citations, a female subject, later identified as Taylor Burson, arrived on scene to pick up Franks and Cutlip. Ptl. Ray made contact with Burson, who was also found to have a suspended driver license.

 

While Ptl. Ray was handling Burson's citation, I advised dispatch to contact a towing company to tow the vehicle belonging to Cutlip. Sebring Tire was unable to respond, so K&D towing was summoned.

 

Ptl. Ray opted not to tow the vehicle belonging to Burson, but to instead allow her to call for a ride. I also at this point gave both Cutlip and Franks their citations, with both subjects signing them, being given their copies, and instructed to contact Mahoning County Court #3 on the next business day for information on when they would need to appear for their mandatory court appearances.

 

Approximately 25 minutes later, Roger Rhome, with K&D towing arrived on scene. Also arriving was a driver who came to pick up Burson, Franks, and Cutlip. Driver was determined to have a valid driver license.

 

An administrative inventory of vehicle belonging to Cutlip was also performed, with nothing of value being located. The vehicle was then towed to K&D's impound lot with a hold being placed.

 

Ptl. Ray issued a citation for Driving Under Suspension to Burson.

 

All parties then cleared from the scene. Nothing additional to report at this time.

CHARGES:

4511.19a1a  OVI

4511.39     Turn Signal

 

On 03/11/2022 While on local saturation Patrol for the Mahoning County OVI Task Force I, patrol Brindack, was driving north bound on N 14th St. near Ohio Ave. I observed a silver in color Volkswagen Passat bearing OH HLU1137 pull out of a parking space near the Brickhouse and pull in front of my patrol car. The vehicle came to the intersection of N.14th St. and E. Pennsylvania Ave. and turn right onto Pennsylvania without using a turn signal.

 

I initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle which continued until just before the intersection of Pennsylvania Ave and 15th St. where it came to a stop.

 

Upon approaching the vehicle, I made contact with the driver Tiberu Marian and identified myself and informed him of the reason for the stop which he scoffed at. Observed his eyes were glassy in appearance and slightly bloodshot. I also detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the vehicle. I asked Marian if he had any alcohol to drink tonight and he replied "one beer". 

 

I collected Marian driver's license and paperwork and told him I would be right back, as I was sitting in my patrol car running Marian through dispatch, he exited his vehicle and approached the rear of his vehicle. I ordered Marian to get back and his vehicle and he replied "I'm just making sure you can see my turn signals" and as he turned around to walk back to his vehicle, I noticed him stumble. At this point I Walked over to Marian and asked if he would do field sobriety tests.  Marian said he would. 

 

 

At this point Sgt. Kelm had also arrived on scene.

 

During the first test the horizontal gaze nystagmus, Marian advised he used glasses but only to read and had no head or eye injuries. During the medical scan I observed Marian had Equal tracking, equal pupil size, and no resting nystagmus. During the HGN Marian was instructed to put his feet together, keeps his arms at his side and to follow the stimulus which was the tip of my pen. I observed lack of smooth pursuit in both eyes, distinct and sustained nystagmus at maximum deviation in the left eye as well as onset prior to 45 degrees in his left eye, Marian was squinting his right eye the entire time making it difficult to observe and was asked to open further but continued to squint. Marian also moved his head multiple times and looked away from the stimulus multiple times.

 

During the "walk and turn" I instructed Marian to keep his feet together and place his arms at his side. I explained to Marian he would be taking 9 heel to toe steps in an imaginary line turn around and do 9 heel to toe steps back. I showed him an example by doing only three steps but explained to him I was taking three and he would be taking 9. Marian, During the walk and turn Marian missed touching his heels to his toes, raised his arms slightly and stumbled while walking and stepped off the line.

 

During the "one leg stand" I instructed Marian to put his feet together arms at his side, and informed Marian to pick a leg of his choosing either left or right and was going to raise it off of the ground and count "1 one-thousand 2 one-thousand 3 one-thousand" until told to stop. I showed Marian and example and asked if he understood. Marian put his left foot up. Said "1 one-thousand 2 one-thousand 3 one-thousand and placed his foot back down. We explained to Marian he needed to go until I said to stop. Marian began again, stumbled raised his arms for balance and then put his right foot down and raised his left foot he then counted to "6 one-thousand" and stopped. Marian swayed the entire time

 

At this point I advised Marian he was under arrest for suspected OVI, And placed him in handcuffs while cuffing Marian tightened his right arm and would not bring it to his left arm. Marian had to be told multiple time to bring his hands together. Marian finally complied and his cuffs were gapped and double locked.

 

I began walking Marian toward my cruiser and he pulled away and tried to go towards his vehicle and said "wait a minute" I held Marian in place and ordered him to stop. Marian complied and was placed in the back of my patrol vehicle. Marian refused a PBT. The passenger Cheryl Dawn Marian was given a PBT, found not to be impaired and allowed to drive the vehicle away.

 

Marian was transported to our station to be processed.

 

On station Marian was read a 2255 form and asked to submit to a chemical and breath test. Marian did submit both urine and breath, urine being first.

 

Ptl. Ray administered the breath test on the intoxilyzer 8000 the first BAC was 0.075 and the second was a 0.071. due to this Marian was not placed under administrative license suspension.

 

Marian was finger printed, photographed and given a copy of his 2255 form. Despite blowing under Marian was obviously impaired and was issued a citation for OVI ORC4511.19 (A)(1)(a) and failure to signal ORC:4511.39 and given a court date at MCCU3 of 03/17/2022.

On 02/25/2022, I Officer Ray, was dispatched to the area of north Johnson railroad tracks near Smith Township PD for a vehicle off the roadway. Sebring Street Department called in the vehicle, and stated that they did not see any occupants.

 

Upon my arrival I observed a black Chevy truck that went off the east side of Johnson. The vehicle was in front of Apex Control Systems, 751 North Johnson Road. There were no occupants.

 

I ran the plate through dispatch (JFH7401). While I was waiting on the plate return I observed the vehicle to be unlocked and a wallet sitting in the center console. Due to the circumstances, I entered the vehicle, and checked the wallet for a license. Inside the wallet I observed a license belonging to Jeffery Davis.

 

At this point dispatch advised the vehicle belongs to Jeffery Davis.

 

Dispatch advised me that Jeffery lives at 506 Courtney Road. Dispatch also advised that Jeffery was suspended.

 

I cleared the accident, and went to 506 Courtney Road to attempt to locate Jeffery.

 

Upon my arrival Jeffery was standing at the end of his driveway. I approached Jeffery and I asked him what had happened. Jeffery stated to me that the roads were covered in ice, and while he was traveling south on Johnson he lost control, and left the roadway.

 

I asked Jeffery if he had known he was suspended, and he stated no. After observing Jeffery to not be injured, I returned back to the accident. I offered to give Jeffery a ride back, and he refused. Instead, he chose to walk. Back at the accident Jeffery met me, and I issued him a citation for DUS Child Support 335.074, and Failure to Control 331.34(A).

On 02/24/2022, I, (Ptl. Stanton #505), was on patrol on Courtney Road. This was at approximately 0100 hours, and I witnessed a vehicle pass me with a noticeable white light being emitted from the rear.

 

Turning around at the intersection of Courtney and 12th street, I witnessed the vehicle have a broken taillight. When the vehicle engaged its brake is when the white light was emitted.

 

I trailed the vehicle until we were at the intersection of Courtney and Johnson where I initiated a traffic stop. Engaging my overhead lights, the vehicle pulled over, clearing the intersection.

 

Upon approach to the vehicle after it  stopped, I noticed the plate tag read 01-22. This was expired. I asked the driver for his license and explained the reason for the stop. Once secured I went back to my cruiser to verify the vehicle and drivers' status. The driver was valid but the vehicle was expired.

 

I issued the driver a warning for the brake light, citing him for the expired registration. The driver stated he was unaware of the expired tag and explained his wife lived on Courtney Rd and he was going to her house for the night.

 

The driver was polite and respectful toward me being very compliant.  I advised him of the registration citation and instructed him to correct it. I would not be towing his vehicle as well giving him the benefit of doubt because his compliant demeanor.

 

I cleared the traffic stop. The citation number is 031397 and SCO:335.09 is the Sebring Ordinance for expired tags.

TRAFFIC - 100 Block E. Ohio Ave. Sebring, OH

 

CITED: Andrew Rice, 39, 251 Stewart Rd., Salem, OH

 

CHARGE: SCO:335.10  Expired/Unlawful Plates

 

At 16:12 hours on 02-23-2022, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303. While stationary along the roadside at the intersection of N. Johnson Rd and W. Ohio Avenue, I conducted a random registration check of a black Chevrolet Trailblazer that traveled through the intersection.

 

The license plate on the vehicle, Ohio Registration HXZ 9929, returned to a black 2005 Chevrolet Station Wagon but was found to have expired on 12-08-2021. The plates returned to a Phillip Goodwin from Salem, Ohio.

 

Upon catching up with the vehicle at the intersection of Ohio Avenue and N. 15th Street, I activated my patrol car's overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop. The vehicle came to a stop in the 100 block of E. Ohio Avenue.

 

I made contact with the driver and informed him of the reason for the stop as well as requested his driver license, proof of insurance and vehicle registration. The driver produced an Ohio Driver License that identified him as Andrew J. Rice. He also produced an insurance card as well as a vehicle registration that showed the vehicle was registered to the individual advised by dispatch.

 

In speaking further with Rice, he said that he had bought the vehicle off of his neighbor, Phillip Goodwin, and he, through his mother, had taken care of registering the vehicle.

 

I then returned to my patrol car where I began writing a citation to Rice. I cited Rice for Expired or Unlawful Plates (SCO:335.10). Rice signed the citation, was given his copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for information on how to either contest the citation or pay it if he wished to do so.

 

Rice was also instructed to have the vehicle properly registered before driving it again.

 

I then cleared from the stop. NFI

CHARGES:

ORC 4510.11 Driving Under Suspension(Non-Compliance)

ORC 4511.39 Turn/Stop Signals

 

At 08:33 hours on 02-22-2022 I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 302.

 

While patrolling eastbound on W. Texas Avenue approaching S. 15th Street, I observed a green Chevrolet Equinox, bearing Ohio Registration JMP 4875, that was traveling in front of me, fail to signal prior to 100 feet before making a right turn on S. 15th. As we traveled down S. 15th Street, I activated the patrol cars overhead emergency lights to initiate a traffic stop. The vehicle turned left on U.S. 62 and then came to a stop.

 

I then approached the vehicle and made contact with the driver, Curtis Smith. I informed Smith of the reason for the stop as well as asked for his driver license. Smith said that he did not have one and that his driving privileges were suspended. Smith was able to provide me with his social security number, as well as name and date of birth.

 

Upon returning to my patrol car, I relayed Smith's information to dispatch, with it being found that he was currently under seven separate license suspensions. I then drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No.032205. I cited Smith for Driving Under Suspension (ORC: 4510.11), as well as turn/stop signals (ORC: 4511.39). Ptl. Brindack also arrived to my location at approximately this time.

 

I then returned to the vehicle that Smith was driving and instructed him to exit. Ptl. Brindack and I conducted an inventory of the vehicle, with nothing of value being located.

 

Smith then signed the citation, was given his copy, and instructed to contact Mahoning County Court No. 3 for further instructions on when to appear for his mandatory court hearing. It should be noted that in speaking with Smith, he did inform me that Cathy Morrison, the vehicle's registered owner, knew that his driving privileges were suspended before she allowed him to use the vehicle.

 

Sebring Tire then arrived and towed the vehicle to their impound lot. Because I planned on citing Morrison for Wrongful Entrustment a hold was placed on it. Once Sebring Tire towed the vehicle, both units cleared from the stop.

 

After clearing from the traffic stop, I returned to the police station briefly before going to Cathy Morrison's residence, located at 546 S, Johnson Road. Upon making contact with Morrison, I informed her that her vehicle had been towed because Smith was driving it with a suspended license. When I asked Morrison if she was aware that Smith's license was suspended, she stated "I think I did". Morrison was then issued Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032206.1 cited Morrison for Wrongful Entrustment of a Motor Vehicle (ORC: 4511.203(A)(2)). Morrison signed the citation, was given her copy, and instructed to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for further instructions on when to appear for her mandatory court hearing. I also advised Morrison that a hold had been placed on her vehicle until at least her first court appearance and that it had been towed to Sebring Tire, located at 10 N. 12th Street. I then cleared from the residence. Nothing additional to report at this time.

CHARGE: SCO: 333.03  Speed (59/35)

 

At 17:45 hours on 02-19-2022, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 304. While parked Parallel to Courtney Rd. in the loading bay at Famous Distribution, (350 Courtney Road), I observed a westbound Chevrolet Equinox, blue in color, that appeared to be traveling at a speed that was substantially higher than the posted 35 MPH limit.

 

Upon activating the patrol car's front-facing radar antenna, I obtained a locked speed of 59 MPH. I then activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights and attempted to initiate a traffic stop. Due to the speed that the vehicle was traveling allowing it to gain a substantial amount of distance from me, I also activated the patrol cars audible siren.

 

The driver of the vehicle then appeared to notice that I was behind him, with him coming to a stop on Courtney Road, approximately 1/10 mile west of N. Johnson. As I pulled up onto the vehicle, I noticed Ohio Registration HWC 2036 was affixed to the back. Upon making contact with the driver, I introduced myself as well as informed him of the reason for the stop. The driver informed me that he was looking for his glasses, was on his way to get feed for his chickens, and had not noticed.

 

I then requested his driver license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. The driver handed me an Ohio Driver License that identified him as Benjamin Sparks, as well as the vehicle's registration. Sparks was unable to provide me with a copy of the vehicle's insurance information.

 

I then returned to my patrol car where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032204. Sparks was cited for speed (SCO: 333.03), for going 59 MPH in the marked 35 zone. Sparks signed the citation, was given his copy, and instructed to call Mahoning County Court #3 on the next business day for information on his mandatory court appearance.

 

I then cleared from the stop. Nothing additional to report at this time.

TRAFFIC - 200 Block N. 12th St., Sebring, Oh

 

CITED: Melonie Copen, 38, 29546 Salem-Alliance Rd. Salem Oh

 

CHARGE: SCO: 335.10 Expired License Plates

 

At 16:15 hours on 01-21-2022 I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 302.  While traveling eastbound in the turning lane on E. Ohio Avenue at N. 12th Street waiting for the light to turn green, I observed a tan Chevrolet Prism that was traveling southbound on N. 12th Street travel into the intersection before slamming its brakes due to the light having changed.  The vehicle then backed up to the stop bar of the intersection. It should be noted that the intersection had vehicles attempting to enter at the time this occurred.

 

Once I was able to proceed into the intersection I turned my patrol car around so as to position myself behind the vehicle. When the light turned green, I initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle, bearing Ohio Registration

HXL 3086.

 

Upon making contact with the driver she immediately stated she thought it was flashing yellow. The driver then provided me with her driver license, which identified her as Melonie Copen, the registered owner of the vehicle. Also present in the vehicle was a Charles Copen who was sitting in the front passenger seat.

 

Once back at my patrol car, I relayed the information of both of the vehicles occupants to dispatch with it being advised that the license plates of the vehicle had been expired since 11/20/2021. 

 

Charles was found to have two active warrants for his arrest but was out of pick-up radius.

 

Ptl. Ray arrived at approximately this time with the two of us approaching the vehicle. I approached from the driver side and Ptl. Ray approached from the passenger side. In speaking with Melonie, she informed me that she knew her tags were expired and that she had received a warning from another police officer several weeks prior.

 

I also at point detected the odor of raw marijuana from inside of the vehicle. When I asked Melonie about this she said that she had a marijuana card and the she was unsure of what was inside of the vehicle.

 

A probable cause search as well as administrative inventory of the vehicle was conducted with nothing of value nor any contraband being located. I then returned to my patrol car where I wrote Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032122 to Copen. I cited Copen for expired license plates (SCO: 335.10). Copen also received a verbal warning for stopping within intersection.

 

Sebring Tire then arrived on scene and towed the vehicle to their impound lot. 

 

Copen signed the citation, was given her copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for instruction on when to appear for her court appearance.  Both units then cleared from the stop.

 

Nothing additional to report at this time.

TRAFFIC - 15th Street / Texas Ave

 

CITED: Bruce Rodkey, 45, 11360 Johnson Ave NE

 

Charges:

335.01(a)  No Drivers License

331.14     Failure to Signal

4510.11(B) Violation of Restriction

 

On 01/03/2022,1 Officer Ray, was sitting in the parking lot of Huntington Bank when I observed a GMC SUV drive past on Ohio Ave, and get into the turn lane at the intersection of 15th Street. At the time I also did not observe the vehicle to have a plate light. I pulled out of the parking lot and got behind the vehicle that still did not have a turn signal on.

 

Should be noted that at this point the vehicle was already at a complete stop. As I stopped my cruiser behind the vehicle the light at the intersection turned green, and then the turn signal was activated. The vehicle approached the intersection of 15th and Oregon and that light had turned yellow. The vehicle traveled through the intersection, but I was delayed by the red light.

 

The light turned green, and I activated my over head lights, and siren, and got the vehicle to stop at Texas Ave.

 

I approached the vehicle, and identified the driver as Bruce Rodkey, I stated to Bruce that I was stopping him for not using his turn signal 100 feet prior to his turn, and that his plate light was hanging off of the truck, and that it was not shining light on to his plate.

 

Bruce began to be hostile with me stating that he used his turn signal. He argued that the law does not state 100 feet, and he stated that he had planned to drive straight and that prompted me to ask why he was in the turn lane.

 

I asked Bruce for his drivers license and the vehicle's registration. Neither document was able to be provided. I returned to my cruiser, and asked dispatch for the registered owners information. Dispatch advised me that Bruce was restricted to daylight driving.

 

Should be noted that my time of stop was at 19:50 and it was dark.

 

I returned to Bruce and stated to him that he was being cited for the restriction, and again he began to argue with me stating that it was an issue with the BMV. I stated to him that I go off of what I am told by my dispatcher and that I was not the BMV. I stated to Bruce that I was not the court and to stop arguing.

 

Bruce stated that I never gave him a reason for the stop, and I repeated that he was stopped for not using his turn signal. Bruce then stated "why did it take you so long to stop me" and I advised him that he went through the intersection on yellow and I stopped at the red light. In that same sentence Bruce argued that I ran the red light. Should be noted that Officer Ossler was sitting at that same intersection and observed me stopping at the light. Officer Ossler will be doing a supplement.

 

Due to Bruce continuing to argue with me over the traffic stop, I advised him that I would be back. I returned to my cruiser and added the failure to signal on the citation.

 

I returned to Bruce, and stated that the failure to signal was now added, and I continued by asking him if he was going to sign the citation. Bruce agreed. While signing the citation, Bruce began to question why the traffic stop took so long and I advised him that due to him not providing any information to me in the form of a license or the registration that I had to call dispatch for them to read me all the information.

 

Bruce was cited for Violation of Restriction 4510.11(8), Failure to signal 331.14, and No drivers license 335.01(a).

Charges:

ORC: 4510.11 Driving Under Suspension (Non-Compliance)

 

ORC: 4511.21 Speed (38125)

 

On 11-05-2021 at 17:48 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303. While sitting facing westbound in the parking lot of unit, United Die, located at 100 N. 17th Street, I observed a tan four-door sedan traveling eastbound on W. California Avenue at a rate of speed that appeared to be higher than that of the posted 25MPH limit. Upon activating the front-facing radar antenna of the patrol car, I obtained a locked speed of 38MPH. I then pulled out onto the roadway, activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights, and initiated a traffic stop.

 

The Tan Nissan Altima, bearing Ohio Registration JLW6209, came to a complete stop in the 200 block of W. California Avenue, with me then approaching and making contact with the female driver and male front seat passenger.

 

Upon advising the driver of the reason for the stop, she said that she was not familiar with the roads or speed limits. She then produced an Ohio Driver License, which identified her as Morgan Lee Barr Finnie. I also requested the front seat passenger's identification, seeing as he did not have a seat belt on. The passenger handed me an Ohio Identification Card, which identified him as Brandon Lamont Dotson. Mr. Dotson also at this point advised me that he had a Concealed Carry Permit and was armed.

 

I then returned to my patrol car where I relayed both subjects' information to dispatch. Barr-Finnie was found to be under a non-compliance suspension and Dotson did not have a valid driver license. At this point, I requested Ptl. Ray to respond to my location due to Dotson advising the presence of a firearm in the vehicle.

 

Upon again making contact with Barr-Finnie, I advised her of her suspension and asked if she was aware. Barr-Finnie said that she was not and that she had recently received a traffic citation that she did pay in full. Barr-Finnie was advised to contact someone to give her a ride seeing as her vehicle was going to be towed. Barr-Finnie said that she would be in contact with her mother, and that she would come from Alliance to give her a ride home seeing as she had a small child in the vehicle with her.

 

I then returned to my patrol car where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032201. I cited Barr-Finnie for Speed (ORC: 4511.21), for going 38MPH in the marked 25MPH zone. Barr-Finnie was also cited for Driving Under Suspension (ORC: 4510.11). I then returned to Barr-Finnie's vehicle where she signed the citation, was given her copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 on the next business day for instructions on when she is to appear in court.

 

It should also be noted that when I requested Barr-Finnie's proof of insurance, she scrolled through her phone briefly but advised that she was unable to locate it.

 

Sebring Tire then arrived on scene as did Barr-Finnie's mother. An administrative inventory was conducted of the vehicle, with nothing of value and no contraband being located. The vehicle was then towed to Sebring Tire.

 

Barr-Finnie, Mr. Dotson, and left with her mother and stepfather.

 

Both Ptl. Ray and I then cleared from the stop. It should be noted that the calibration of car 303's in-car radar unit was verified before use as well as after issuing Barr-Finnie her citation, this being done using the department issued tuning forks. I also know the speed limit on W. California Avenue to be clearly posted and easily visible.

 

Nothing additional to report at this time.

On 30 OCT. 2021, I (Ptl. Stanton) initiated a traffic stop on a white SUV with no operational license plate light. Once I verified the driver, I was notified the vehicle JKK2286 had an expired registration tag.

 

I asked the driver (Air-Risha A. Sibley) about this and she stated she forgot from her birthday to get a new tag. She asked about what will happen next. I explained protocol about interacting with such an offense and stated again the reason I pulled her over. I also explained that the equipment violation was my initial reason to stop since I am conducting OVI saturation in the Local area.

 

I advised her at this time she will be receiving a citation for the tag. The driver stated she would rather take the citation over a tow bill since she is on her way to work. 

 

I issued the driver citation accordingly for the expired tag. I left the vehicle in her care since the expiration is within 30 days. A warning about the equipment violation was also issued to the driver.

Charge: SCO: 333.03  Speed (52/35)

 

On 10-19-2021 at 1350 hours. I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 304. While patrolling northbound in the 400 block of N. 12th Street, I observed a southbound Dodge 3500 pickup towing a fifth-wheel trailer at a rate of speed that appeared to be substantially higher than the posted speed limit of 35MPH. As the vehicle approached the intersection of N. 12th Street and E. Michigan Avenue, I obtained a locked speed of 52MPH.

 

Just prior to the vehicle going past me, I activated the overhead emergency lightbar of the patrol car, turned around, and initiated a traffic stop. The vehicle came to a complete stop in the 300 block of E. Pennsylvania Avenue. Upon approaching. I observed Texas Registration NVS 4119 attached to the rear of the pickup.

 

In speaking with the driver, I requested his driver license, vehicle registration, as well as proof of insurance. The driver, identified as Miranda Martinez Yoalber, by his Texas Driver License, was able to produce all requested documents. When I informed him of the reason for the traffic stop, Mr. Yoalber said that he did not speak English.

 

I then returned to my patrol car where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032095. I cited Mr. Yoalber for speed (SCO: 333.03), for going 52MPH in a marked 35MPH zone. Mr. Yoalber signed the citation, was given his copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for information on how to either pay for the citation or contest it if he wished to do so.

 

Due to the language barrier, I wrote a note instructing Yoalber to contact Mahoning County Court #3 within three business days for information on how to contest the citation of pay for it. The phone number to the court was included, with me instructing Yoalber to have someone translate it for him. I then cleared from the stop.

4549.02(A)(1)  Stopping After an Accident

 

On 10/02/2021, I, Officer Ray, along with Detective Reed, assisted Smith Township with a vehicle crash they had on SR 62. Dispatch advised the Smith unit that a vehicle had went through the stop sign on 15th at SR 62, and the vehicle had come to a stop across from the stop sign. Dispatch advised that witnesses were watching the individual begin to walk North on 15th street.

 

I was already in the area, and began to search 15th for the individual. I was unable to locate.

 

Smith unit advised dispatch the vehicles plate, N033723. The vehicle belonged to Steven Lively.

 

At this point Detective Reed advised all units that Steven had an ex girlfriend that lived at 332 South 15th Street. Detective Reed, and myself went to that address. Upon our arrival we made contact with who was currently on the phone with 911 to report that Steven had crashed into her car. She stated that Steven was at the residence, and they were going to try and make things work relating to a past domestic. Sh stated that Steven had rubbed the hand of a 17 year old girl. This caused an argument.

 

It was at that point Steven had flipped over the fire pit in the yard that had an active burning fire. He backed his vehicle out of the garage, and put the vehicle in drive, striking a vehicle. Steven fled south on 15th Street.

 

When advised how drunk Steven was I cleared from the residence to search 15th Street again, I

believed that Steven could have fallen into a ditch / needed medical help.

 

While searching 15th Street, dispatch advised me that motorists had seen Steven stumbling down 12th Street near SR 62, As I turned on to 12th from SR 62 I was flagged down by a motorist who stated Steven was down the street trying to hitch hike. I observed Steven standing on the side of the road with his arm out, and his thumb up in a hitch hiking position. As I exited my vehicle I observed Steven swaying back and forth, bleeding from his right shin, not wearing shoes, and confused of his location. Steven stated to me that he believed to be on Union Street in Alliance, and was trying to hitch hike home. Steven stated to me that he was not driving any vehicle that night.

 

I detained Steven at 2038 hours, placed him in hand cuffs, gapped/ double locked, and placed him in the back of marked cruiser # 304.  I transported Steven to his crashed vehicle on SR 62 where the Smith unit was still at. Upon my arrival Smith Township took custody of Steven.

 

I stood by at the scene while Smith unit conducted field sobriety on Steven. At this point Smith Township placed Steven under arrest. Smith transported Steven back to Sebring PD where OSP was waiting to use the lntoxilyzer 8000. Steven refused. It should be noted that during the time spent with Steven I observed a strong odor of alcohol, blood shot eyes, Steven had slurred speech, and was having a difficult time standing up.

 

I cited Steven with Physical Control of a vehicle 4511.194(B)(1), DUS 4510.11, and for not stopping after causing an accident 4549.02(A)(l).

TRAFFIC - 13000 Block S. Johnson Rd. Sebring, OH

 

Cited: Toby Zeigler, Age 18, 365 W. Sebring, Oh

 

Charge: SCO:333.03  Speed (49/35)

 

On 09-25-2021 at 21:23 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 302.  While stationary at the entrance of Grandview Cemetery, located on S. Johnson Rd. approximately 1/4 mile north of the intersection with U.S. Route 62, I heard a vehicle begin rapidly accelerating as it traveled northbound on S. Johnson Rd. I then observed a silver Dodge Durango, traveling northbound on Johnson Rd at a rate of speed that appeared to be substantially higher than that of the posted 35 MPH speed limit.

 

I then obtained a locked speed of 49 MPH on the vehicle, using the department issued LIDAR(light Detection and Ranging) gun. Once the vehicle passed by me, I pulled onto the roadway and activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights. The vehicle, Silver Dodge Durango, bearing Ohio Registration JLX 5185, then pulled to the side of the road.

 

Upon approaching the vehicle, I made contact with the driver and advised him of the reason for the stop. When I asked the driver why he accelerated so fast from the intersection, he stated "I just like the way my vehicle sounds, sir". I then requested the driver's vehicle registration, proof of insurance, as well as driver license. The driver was able to produce all requested documents, with his Ohio Driver License identifying him as Toby Lee Zeigler.

 

I then returned to my patrol car where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032092. Mr. Zeigler was cited for Speed/ Sebring Codified Ordnance 333.03 for going 49MPH in a marked 35MPH zone.

Charge: SCO:333.03 Speed (62/35)

 

On 09-24-2021 at 15:48 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303. While stationary, facing west, in the parking lot of Famous supply, located at 300 Courtney Road, I observed a silver sedan traveling eastbound on Courtney Road at a rate of speed that appeared the be substantially higher than that of the posted 35 MPH speed limit. Upon activating the patrol car's front-facing radar antenna, I obtained a locked speed of 62 MPH. As the vehicle approached, I activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights.

 

Once the vehicle passed by me, I pulled onto the roadway and initiated a traffic stop. The Silver Scion FR-S, bearing Ohio Registration NOT BRZ, came to a complete stop near the railroad tracks to the east of Famous Supply. Upon approaching and making contact with the driver, I identified myself as well as advised him of the reason for the stop. I also requested the subject's driver license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. The driver was able to produce all three requested documents, with his Ohio Driver License identify him as Logan M. Stoffer.

 

I then returned to my patrol car where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation Mo.032091. I cited Mr. Stoffer for Speed (Sebring Codified Ordnance 333.03), for going 62 MPH in a marked 35 MPH Zone. I then returned to Mr. Stoffer's vehicle where I returned his documents. Stoffer Signed the citation, was given his copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for information on when he would need to appear for his mandatory court appearance. I then cleared from the stop. It should be noted that the calibration of the in-car radar system for car 303 was properly checked on this date as well using department issued tuning forks.

Case No.: 21-009104

 

OVI - Courtney and Johnson Road

 

CITED: Tonia Norris, 47, 33569 Edgehill Drive, Franklin

 

CHARGES:

4511.19 OVI / Bond $1,250

4301.62 Open Container

4513.23 Obstructed Rear View

 

REPORTING: Ptl Stanton #505

 

 

Unit responded to a possible OVI leaving a residence. I (Ptl. Stanton), responded to the complaint and found the vehicle in question traveling North on Johnson Road. I verified the plate with Sebring Dispatch and then monitored the vehicle to watch for possible impairment. I was advised that the caller is vouching that the driver was intoxicated by Sebring Dispatch. At that time I witnessed a blanket was obstructing the rear view mirror of the vehicle. With this probable cause, I conducted a traffic stop on Johnson and Courtney Rd.

 

Approaching the driver I asked for license and registration, I noticed a faint odor of alcohol coming from the rolled down window. I then advised the driver that I stopped the vehicle for and obstructed rear view mirror. She looked back and confirmed the blanket and tried pulling it down more. I then asked for the passengers license and I secured the documents from the vehicle. I then asked the driver Tonia Norris if she had anything to drink tonight and she freely admitted she did. I then asked her to step out of the vehicle for SFST tests, at this time I witnessed a beer can on the floor in the passenger side. She complied.

 

Sgt. Davis #342 of Smith Township Police was on scene as well and secured the passenger while I conducted my test.

 

There was no notable nystagmus in the eyes so I moved on with the rest of the tests. During the walk and turn, Tonia was unable to perform heel to toe test an turned abruptly with one step instead of a serious of smalls steps as instructed. Tonia also was unable to walk back in the same amount of steps she walked forward initially in. I moved on to the one leg stand, Tonia then was unable to keep her foot raised for the full 30 seconds. She instead stopped at 15 then started and stopped at 23 then started and finally stopped at 30.

 

During these start and stops she did not count in the thousands as instructed as well. Tonia was also wobbly and moved her arms out to keep balance. With these notifications, I arrested Tonia for OVI and Sgt. Davis secured her in his cruiser.

 

I went back to the vehicle and spoke to Sherrie explaining what is happening, that is when I witnessed the bag of open alcohol containers. I secured them and discovered it contained a crushed beer can and two open and empty bottle of Corona.

 

I waited for Sebring Tire to tow the vehicle and once this was done I returned to station for testing of Tonia. Sebring Tire escorted Sherrie to station due to me having the K-9 and Sgt. Davis having Tonia in custody for transport. Once at the station I told Sebring Tire the vehicle is on hold for court and he left station accordingly.

 

I instructed Sherrie to wait in the lobby while I processed Tonia. I read Tonia the 2255 form and asked if she is willing to consent to a breath test. Tonia consented and blew a .202. 

 

I processed the paperwork with Tonia and cited her for OVI 4511.19 /Open Container 4301.62 /and Obstructed Rear View - 4513.23.  I obtained photographs of Tonia and fingerprints for her as well. The bottles and beer cans located in her vehicle are stored in evidence at this time. I asked Tonia if going to court today would help since she is out of state and she agreed it would. I originally had her go to court on 9/30/2021 then realized what day it was and told her courts are on Thursdays for Sebring. The court date is set for 09/23/2021 @ 900 for MCC#3.

Upon seeing Guildoo, I requested his driving status from dispatch, with it being advised shortly after that his driver license was suspended. I then turned my patrol car around and went towards the area where I had last seen Guildoo's vehicle.

 

As I neared the intersection of S. 18th Street and W. Georgia Avenue, I observed Guildoo's vehicle in an alleyway that connects W. Georgia to S. 18th Street. I then pulled into this alleyway opposite the direction he was going and initiated a traffic stop.

 

Upon exiting my patrol car and approaching the vehicle, I observed Christopher Guildoo in the front driver seat, Loni Quinn in the front passenger seat, and Brittany Landacre in the back seat behind Quinn. At this point I also noted that Ohio Registration JLW 5706 was attached to the SUV. This registration showed the vehicle as belonging to Loni Quinn. Ohio Registration SYX3177 was attached to the trailer. This registration expired on 09-15-2021 and returned to a Ronald Hubbs of Sebring.

 

I then returned to my patrol car where I began writing traffic citations for both Quinn and Guildoo. Due to officer safety, I requested mutual aid from Smith Township so that I could complete an administrative inventory of the vehicle prior to towing. Ptl. Iverson arrived a short time later. Guildoo was cited for Driving Under Suspension (ORC: 4510.11) as well as Expired Registration (ORC: 4503.11). Quinn was cited for Wrongful Entrustment of a Motor Vehicle(SCO: 335.05).

 

Both parties were advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 the following business day for information on when to appear for their court hearing. I then began an administrative inventory of the vehicle with nothing of value being located.

 

Sebring tire then arrived on scene and towed the SUV to their impound lot. Due to Quinn being cited for Wrongful Entrustment, a hold was placed on the vehicle.

 

The trailer, with Consent from resident Katrina Salyers, was left in her yard at 335 S. 18h Street. Guildoo was advised that he would need valid registration to use it on a public roadway.

 

I then cleared from the stop. Nothing additional to report at this time.

CHARGES:

ORC: 4510.11  Driving Under Suspension (M1)

ORC: 4549.08  Fictitious Plates

ORC: 4513.05  Illumination of Rear License Plate

 

At 20:30 hours on 08-27-2021, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303. While stationary at the intersection of W. Ohio Avenue and N. Johnson Road, a silver Toyota pulled off to the side of the road and approached my patrol car, with a female exiting and asking for directions to Canton. After giving the female subject directions, she turned around and began driving southbound on N. Johnson Rd. At this point I noticed that the rear license plate light to the vehicle was not functioning. I then requested a registration check of the vehicle, with the attached license Plate. JFR 6974, returning to a black Chevrolet station wagon with this registration also being expired.

 

I then activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lightbar and initiated a traffic stop. The silver Toyota Echo came to a complete stop on Lake Park Blvd., just west of S. Johnson Road. I then approached the vehicle and made contact with the driver, who identified herself as Lee Ann Carney. In speaking with Carney, I advised her of the reason for the stop and asked for her driver license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance.

 

Carney was unable to produce any of the requested documents, with her informing me that she did not have a driver license. Carney also advised me that the license plates belonged to her sister, Elizabeth Carney.

 

I then relayed Carney's information to dispatch, with it being discovered that her driver license was under suspension. Sgt. Kelm arrived on scene at approximately this time. Carney was then instructed to step out of the vehicle and stand on the curb lawn of a neighboring residence. I then began an administrative inventory of the vehicle with nothing of value being found.

 

After completing the inventory, I returned to my patrol cat where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No.031952. I cited Carney for Driving Under Suspension (ORC:4510.11)Fictitious Plates (ORC:4549.08), and Illumination of Rear License Plate (ORC: 4513.05). As I was writing the citation, I asked Sgt. Kelm to relay the vehicle's VIN number to dispatch to determine ownership. The vehicle retumed to a Virginia Chesser, of Warren, Ohio.

 

I then returned to Carney's vehicle, where she was now sitting, and asked her to sign the citation. Carney signed the citation, was given her copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 the following business day for instructions on when to appear for her mandatory court appearance.

 

Sebring Tire then arrived and towed the vehicle to their impound lot. Due to Carney not having anyone available to pick her up and the fact that she had a toddler with her, she was given a courtesy ride to The Sebring Police Station so that she could wait for a ride.

 

Nothing additional to report at this time.

At 15:17 hours on 08-05-2021, I responded to a two car MVC at the intersection of N. Johnson and Courtney Roads. Upon arriving with Sebring Fire/EMS Medic 1, I observed a black Buick Encore (OH Reg HTG 4990) facing southbound in the grassy area to the southwest of the intersection. Directly behind it, still partially in the southbound lane of N Johnson Road, was a black Jeep Grand Cherokee (PA Reg KZN 6520). The Buick had moderate/disabling damage to the front end and front portion of the driver side. The Jeep had moderate/disabling damage to the front end.

 

As I exited my patrol car. I made contact with an adult female subject who had been driving the Buick (Savanna Semler), and asked her if she or the toddler child she was holding had been injured. Semler advised that she had hit her head but was okay.

 

Sebring EMS began speaking with her at this point, with me then making contact with the driver of the Jeep, Andrew J. Lusebring. In speaking with Lusebrink, he advised that he believed the intersection was a fourway stop and proceeded through, striking the other vehicle. Lusebrink and his adult male passenger, Alexander Khorey, both advised that they were wearing seat belts and had not been injured.

 

After collecting his driver license, registration, and insurance information, I went back to my patrol car where I wrote Uniform Traffic Citation #032087 to Lusebrink for right of way at intersections (SCO:331.16). Lusebrink signed the citation, was given his copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for information on how to either contest the citation of pay it if he wished to do so.

 

After photographing the scene and vehicles I remained on site for traffic control until Sebring Tire was able to remove both vehicles. Nothing additional to report at this time.

Traffic - E. Wisconsin Ave. @14th St.

 

CITED: Austin Sturgill, age 24, 4439 Center Rd. Conneaut

 

Charge: 4511.19 A1A OVl SFST  / Bond $500

 

 

While on patrol I was waved down by the complainant later identified as Christin Sanders 836 N. 15th St., near the intersection of N. 15th St. and E. Wisconsin Ave. Christin advised her boyfriend, later identified as Austin Sturgill, had been driving around and he was drunk.

 

Christin advised Austin was driving a white in color Dodge Ram. I then began a sweep of the area. I was able to observe a white in color Dodge Ram traveling east on E. Vermont Ave. which then turned north on N. 12th St.

 

I got behind the vehicle to observe their driving, when the vehicle got near 835 N. 14th St. I observed the vehicle turn into the alley without properly signaling. I then activated my overhead emergency lights and conducted a traffic stop. I made contact with the driver Austin Sturgill who appeared very nervous and was stumbling on his words. I then asked Austin for his drivers license, registration, and proof of insurance.

 

Austin produced his drivers license but had to be asked again for his registration and insurance information.

 

After being asked a second time Austin was able to provide a valid registration and advised his insurance information was on his phone but he was having trouble signing in. While speaking with Austin me had his hand covering his mouth as he spoke and I was able to faintly smell the odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from inside the vehicle. I then asked Austin if he had anything to drink and he replied he had 2 beers approximately 2 hours ago. I then advised Austin I would like to perform a test to ensure he was ok to driver which he complied with.

 

While Austin was seated in the drivers seat of the vehicle I performed the horizontal gaze nystagmus test. I advised Austin to look at my finger tip and only my finger tip and follow it was only his eyes. I then checked for equal pupil size and resting nystagmus. Austin had no signs of resting nystagmus and both pupils appeared to be of equal size. I then checked both eyes for equal tracking and both eyes tracked the tip of my finger equally. I then checked both eyes for onset of nystagmus at maximum deviation which I was able to observe in both eyes. I then checked both eyes for onset prior to 45 degrees which was also observed in both eyes. I then advised Austin I would like to perform 2 more tests to ensure he was ok to drive. Austin complied and I advised him to step out of the vehicle.

 

I then had Austin stand with his arms at his sides and his left foot in front of his right heel to toe while I showed him an example of how the walk and turn test was to be completed. Austin advised he understood the instructions. I then had him begin. Austin immediately used his arms to keep balance, and stepped off the line several times.

 

I then had Austin stand with his arms at his sides and feet together. I then showed Austin an example of the next test the one leg stand. Austin advised he understood my directions. I then advised Austin he could start the test. Austin used his arms to keep his balance, did not count how I advised him to, and dropped his foot multiple times.

 

I then advised Austin he was under arrest for suspicion of OVI. I had him turn with his back facing me, placed him in handcuffs (double locked and properly gapped), and placed him in the rear of my cruiser.

 

At this time the complainant arrived on scene and advised she would drive the vehicle to avoid it getting towed. I verified she was a valid driver and ensured Austin agreed that she could drive the vehicle. I then transported Austin back to the police station where he was read the BMV 2255.

 

Austin advised he refused to take any chemical tests. Austin was then photographed and fingerprinted and released on an OR bond. Austin was advised of his court date on 7/29/2021 at MCC#3 at 0900hrs.

 

I then gave Austin a courtesy transport back to 836 N. 15th St.

Charge: SCO: 335.01 Driver License Required (MM)

 

On 07-23-2021 at 16:26 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303. While southbound in the 200 block of N. 15th Street I conducted a random registration check of a vehicle that was traveling southbound in front of me. The Black Suzuki Forenza, bearing Ohio Registration HCF 8090, returned to an Ashley Gilkerson, whose driver license was not valid due to failing to reinstate.

 

As the vehicle crossed the railroad tracks and turned right onto W. California Avenue, I activated the patrol cars overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop. The vehicle came to a complete stop in the 100 block of W. California Avenue. I then approached and made contact with the female driver, who advised that she was Ashley Gilkerson. I then advised Gilkerson of the reason for the stop as well as asked for her driver license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. Gilkerson was able to produce all three requested documents, with it being confirmed through dispatch again that her driver license was not valid due to failing to reinstate.

 

At this point Gilkerson advised that she had been told by a judge in Alliance that her license would be valid.

 

Due to Gilkerson's passenger, Thane Lopez, also not being valid, I advised her that I would be towing her vehicle as well as issuing her a citation. Afler completing an administrative inventory of the vehicle with nothing of value being located, I wrote Uniform Traffic Citation #032080 to Gilkerson. I cited Gilkerson for driver license required (SCO: 335.01). Gilkerson then signed the citation, was given her copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for information on her mandatory court appeared.

 

Sebring Tire then arrived and towed the vehicle to their impound lot. I cleared from the stop afterwards.

CITED: Tyler Mccaslin, Age 33, 811 Perry Street Salem, Ohio 44460

 

Charge: 4510.11  DUS(License Forfeiture)

 

On 07/05/2021 @ 2216 hrs I was traveling Northbound on North 15th St near West Pennsylvania when I observed a vehicle traveling southbound on North 15th St with no rear license plate lights illuminating his license plate.

 

I safely performed a U-turn while having my emergency overhead lights and audible siren activated.  As I approached the vehicle it began slow rolling for about 2 blocks beginning near premier health then making a right turn onto Georgia Ave.  The vehicle did come to a complete stop west of 144 West Georgia Ave.  I asked dispatch for Sgt. Kelm #503 to assist me on the traffic stop.  I approached the vehicle, advised who I was, and the reason for the stop.  I asked for the driver's license, registration and proof of insurance and he procured all the aforementioned documents to me.

 

Sgt. Kelm arrived on scene to assist me at this time and dispatch advised officers that the driver, Tyler Mccaslin, was suspended and having a warrant out of Columbiana County to which they did want him.

 

I asked Tyler to sht the vehicle off and exit the vehicle.  All occupants complied with the request and exited the vehicle.  I advised the 2 passengers to speak with and give information to Sgt. Kelm as I put Tyler under detainment, placing him in handcuffs (double locked and properly gapped).

 

The passengers were identified.

 

I advised Tyler of his rights and then advised we were towing the vehicle.  Tyler was given citation #032053 for ORC4510.11 DUS(License Forfeiture).  I then transported Tyler to Sunoco has station (48 Westville Lake Road), where Columbiana County received Tyler into their custody.

 

I then cleared back to the village.

 

Sgt Kelm advised me that the passenger, Logan Daugherty, also had a warrant out of Mahoning County and they did want him.  Dispatch advised Ptl. Ray #511 had arrived on station for his shift and was sent to assist officers on scene.  Ptl. Ray arrived on scene and was given Logan to transport to Mahoning County jail.

 

The vehicle was towed and all officers cleared without further incident.

On 07-02-2021 at 17:25 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303. While stationary facing north on the roadside in the 1100 block of S. 12th St I observed a white SUV that was traveling southbound at a rate of speed that appeared to be substantially higher than that of the posted 35MPH speed limit.

 

Upon activating the patrol car's front-facing radar antenna, I obtained a locked speed of 55MPH. As the vehicle approached closer, I activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop.

 

The white Ford Expedition, bearing Ohio Registration JCR 6086, came to a complete stop just south of the village limits. Upon making contact with the driver, I requested her driver license, vehicle registration, as well as proof of insurance. The driver produced all requested documents with her Ohio Driver License identifying her as Janelle Corallo. When I asked if she was aware of her speed Corallo did not reply.

 

I then returned to my patrol car where I wrote Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032085 to Corallo for Speed (Sebring Codified Ordnance 333.03), for going 55MPH in the marked 35MPH zone. Corolla signed the citation, was given her copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for information on how to either contest the citation or pay it if she wished to do so.

 

I then cleared from the bop with nothing additional to report at this time.

While sitting stationary facing east in the parking lot of Unifrax, located at 500 Courtney Rd., I observed a gray SUV traveling westbound on Courtney Rd. near Allied Dr. at a rate of speed that appeared to be substantially higher than that of the posted 35MPH speed limit. Upon activating the patrol car's front facing radar antenna, I obtained a locked speed of 55MPH.

 

As the vehicle approached closer, I activated the patrol car's overhead emergency light bar and

initiated a traffic stop on the gray Toyota Rav 4 bearing Ohio Registration. Upon making contact with the male driver I introduced myself and advised him of the reason for the traffic stop.  The driver immediately became belligerent, asking where the speed limit is posted at.  I informed the driver that there is a speed limit sign that is clearly visible immediately upon crossing the railroad tracks.  I then requested his driver license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. The driver produced all three requested documents, with his Ohio Driver License identifying him as Alxander Knappenberger.

 

As Mr. Knappenberger handed me his driver license, he continued to be belligerent, stating "make this quick I have somewhere to be".  I then returned to my patrol car where I wrote Traffic Citation No. 032984 to Knappenberger. I cited Knappenberger for speed (Sebring Codified Ordnance 333.03), for going 55MPH in a marked 35 MPH zone.

 

I then returned to Knappenberger's vehicle, where he signed the citation and was given his copy. Knappenberger was advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for information on when to appear to his mandatory court appearance.

 

I then cleared from the stop with nothing additional to report at this time.

On 06/16/2021 I was performing patrol duties along S. Johnson road when I observed a vehicle that had a partially obstructed license plate, and no rear illumination lighting the license plate. Upon running the license plate (JJV 8117) through dispatch, I was also advised the registered owner was suspended. I activated my emergency overhead lights and audible siren. The vehicle stopped in the parking lot of Perkins off of South Johnson Road. I approached the vehicle and advised my reason for the stop being the rear illumination. The driver, later identified as Tyler Drummond, was also determined to be on a non-compliance suspension. After running all parties through dispatch I advised I would need a tow for the vehicle as all occupants license statuses returned as suspended.

 

Sgt. Kelm #503 arrived on scene at this time to assist me. I asked all the occupants to step out of the vehicle, to which they complied. Upon a property inventory of the vehicle, I discovered a bottle that was a prescribed only narcotic. I was able to locate the prescription for Tiffany, and the medication and prescription were given to her. A set of secondary license plates (HUR 1048) were also discovered inside the vehicle, and dispatch advised they were to be confiscated.

 

I completed a tow slip, and Springers towing arrived to sign off on the property slip and obtained the vehicle.

 

There was no holds placed on the vehicle, and Tyler was given citation #032052 for ORC 4510.11 DUS(non-compliance) with a mandatory court date of To Be Set for MCC #3. Tyler signed for the citation, and given a copy of the aforementioned citation.

ARREST REPORT  June 11, 2021 @ 1101 hrs

Case No.: 21-006054

 

TRAFFIC - 400 Block Courtney Rd. Sebring, OH

 

Cited: Rajbeer Turna, Age 26, 344 Upper Paradise Rd. Hamilton, Ontario Canada

 

Charge: SCO: 333.08 Reasonable Control (MM)

 

At 11:0l hours on 06-11-2021 I was traveling westbound in the 300 block of Courtney Rd. when I observed a semi-tractor-trailer-truck that appeared to have driven off the roadway while traveling eastbound. All wheels on the driver side of the truck and trailer were lifted off of the ground and the truck was leaning heavily onto its passenger side.

 

As I approached closer, I observed a male subject in his 20's, of Asian descent, standing near the truck. I slowed to a stop and made contact with the subject, who advised that he had a tow truck enroute to pull the truck out. At approximately this time, I was advised by dispatch that a call had been received regarding the incident.

 

I then turned my patrol car around and activated my overhead lights so as to alert oncoming traffic. I also requested the driver's registration, driver license, as well as proof of insurance. The driver produced a driver license from Ontario Canada that identified him as Rajbeer Singh Turna. In speaking with Turna, he advised that while he was traveling eastbound on Courtney Rd. approaching the tracks he slowed down and pulled over to the shoulder of the roadway to allow another vehicle to pass him. Turna said that he pulled over too far and then went into the ditch. Turna advised that he had been up driving for approximately nine hours.

 

I detected no signs of impairment while speaking with him. As I continued on around the truck, I noticed that an Ontario Canada license plate bearing 903-2PZ was attached to the truck. U.S. Dept. Transportation No. 1474865 was also affixed to the side.

 

Approximately 40 minutes later, Johns Towing arrived and pulled the semi-tractor-trailer-truck from the ditch.

 

Upon being removed from the ditch, the truck was pulled across the railroad tracks by Johns Towing. Because Mr. Turna could not get the truck started again, I notified Smith Township of the issue. Because the truck presented a road hazard, Det. Starr arrived and began conducting traffic control until the truck could be towed from the roadside. David Martin and John Shultz, of Famous Supply, also arrived at around this time and assessed the damage to their property that consisted of deep rutting and damage to the grass along the roadside.

 

Rajbeer Turna was issued Uniform traffic citation No. 032024 for operation without reasonable control (SC0:333.08). Turna signed the citation, was given his copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for information on how to either contest the citation or pay it if he wished to do so. I then cleared from the scene with nothing additional to report at this time.

On 10June21 While on patrol in the Village of Sebring, I (Ptl.

Upon walking up to the vehicle I then made contact with a Hispanic male, Mr. Eduardo Perez Pastor, who was the operator of the vehicle. I made multiple attempts while speaking Spanish to obtain an identification from Pastor who stated he did not have on him. I also noticed while asking for identification pastor he continuously made movements for an unknown object in the driver's side door.

 

Once observing Pastor's change in behavior, I then advised Pastor if he could exit his vehicle for Officer Safety.

 

After asking Pastor and advising him to exit his vehicle I noticed a Black wallet in the doorway of the vehicle. I then asked if the wallet belonged to him and he stated yes it was his wallet. I then asked Pastor if I could Check and make sure that there was no type of narcotics hidden in his wallet and Pastor agreed. While opening the wallet I found a fake identification card with Pastors name on it. I then advised dispatch who my operator was and dispatch advised that he was not valid. After obtaining that information from dispatch I then advised dispatch to send me a Tow and Springers arrived a short time later.

 

Perez was then citied for Turn Signal Required SCO: 331.14 and Driver's License required SCO:335.01 with a court date to be set with MCC#3.

On 06-09-2021 at 09:53, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303. While stationary, facing northbound, on the roadside in the 1400 block of S. l2th Street, I observed a black sedan traveling southbound at a rate of speed that appeared to be substantially higher than that of the posted 35MPH speed limit.

 

Upon activating the patrol car's front-facing radar antenna, I obtained a locked speed of 54MPH. As the vehicle passed by me, I activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop.

 

The black Ford Fusion, bearing Ohio Registration DLY 4044, came to a stop on S. l2th Street, approximately 1/4 mile south of the village limits.

 

Upon approaching and making contact with the driver, he immediately stated "I knew I was getting pulled over". I then requested his driver license, vehicle registration as well as proof of insurance.  I also advised the driver as to why I was stopping him and asked where he was going in such a hurry. The driver said that it was his dad's car and it's a lot different driving it than his pickup truck. The driver also produced an Ohio Driver License that identified him as Jerry Allen Yeagley as well as the vehicle's registration.

 

After speaking with Mr. Yeagley, I returned to my patrol car where I drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032078.

On 05-06-2021 at 08:05 hours, I was dispatched to the area of Sebring Woods on Courtney Rd. regarding a vehicle in a ditch with the driver standing outside of it. I immediately proceeded to this area where I located the subject vehicle, a red 2003 Ford Mustang (OH Reg JIU 4422), sitting in a grassy area on the north side of the roadway facing east. There were also tire tracks in the grass and along the berm of the roadway that led from Courtney Rd and indicated an eastbound direction of travel.

The subject said that he was turning right into Courtney Rd. from N. Johnson Avenue and he lost control and went off the roadway. I then asked the subject for his driver license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. The subject was able to produce an Ohio Driver License that identified him as Zachary Richards as well as proof of up-to-date insurance. Richards said that he had just purchased the vehicle and provided me with a signed and notarized title, which listed a purchase date of 04-19-2021. In speaking further with Richards I did not observe any signs to indicate that he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol. 

 

Richards also advised that he was wearing a seat belt and had not been distracted by his cell phone or any other device at the time of the crash.

 

I then returned to my patrol car and drafted Uniform Traffic Citation No.032079. Richards was cited for operation without reasonable control (Sebring Codified Ordnance 333.08). Richards then signed to citation, was given his copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for instructions on how to either pay the citation or contest it if he wished to do so.

 

A family member then arrived and pulled Richards vehicle from the ditch while I maintained traffic control. I then cleared from the call with nothing additional to report at this time.

Case No.: 21-005032

 

TRAFFIC - W. Texas Ave. / S. 15th St.

 

Cited: Samual Holshue, 19 y/o, 455 South 19th Street Sebring, Ohio

 

Charge: SCO:331.36  Loud Exhaust

 

 

On 05-06-2023 at 2346 hours I, Patrolman Peterman #507, was preparing to leave station when I observed a black Volkswagen approaching the intersection of N 15th St. and East Ohio Ave. loudly emitting a crackling exhaust sound. As the vehicle passed station, I observed the exhaust was modified through the hood of the vehicle. As the vehicle turned south onto 15th St. the vehicle became increasingly louder as it accelerated. I entered my assigned, marked cruiser #302, and as I passed through the intersection of Ohio Ave. and 15th I observed the same vehicle traveling south towards West Texas Ave. I approached the vehicle while activating my emergency overhead lights and audible siren, with the vehicle stopping on west Texas Ave, near south 15th St.

 

I advised dispatch to have Sgt. Kelm #503 to assist me with the traffic stop.

 

As Sgt. Kelm arrived on scene, I approached the vehicle, identifying myself and the reason for the stop being the very loud exhaust sound. I advised the driver and registered owner, Samuel Holshue, that I was going to perform a decibel reading on the vehicle with the department reader. I advised Samuel to rev his car to 3000 RPM so that I can observe the sound level emitted is the same during testing and Samuel complied. I then advised him to stop. As the vehicle idled, I Placed the decibel reader 2-3 inches above the exhaust tip for several seconds and observed a steady reading of 90.8 decibels.

 

I then advised Samuel to rev the vehicle to 3000 RPM and to hold it at that level as I obtained a second reading. Upon performing the same placement of decibel reader, I observed a steady reading of 109.9 Decibels over several seconds. I moved the reader away after locking the device at maximum noise level read, and shown Samuel the reading.

 

I advised Samuel I needed his license and pertinent documentation for the vehicle. Samuel handed me his license, and I returned to my marked cruiser. Samuel was given from Sgt. Kelms citation booklet, citation #031225 for loud exhaust (SCO 331.36MM), and upon returning to the vehicle, Samuel showed me an insurance card that expired on 4/30/2021.  Samuel was unable to find an up to date insurance card, and was given a mandatory court date to be set by the court. I advised Samuel of this and asked for his signature, to which he complied.

 

Officers then cleared without further incident.

Cited: Alyssa Smith, 29, 595 West Maryland Ave., Sebring, Ohio 

 

Charge: 4510.11 DUS(License Forfeiture-Indefinite)

 

 

On 05/05/2021 @ 2344 hours I, Patrolman Peterman #507, while performing patrol duties in marked cruiser #303 on West Pennsylvania Ave., I observed a white chevy, and after running the plate(HQQ4573) the vehicle returned to Alyssa Smith, whom dispatch advised was currently under a license suspension.

 

I activated my emergency overhead lights, and audible siren as the vehicle stopped near the intersectian of West Pennsylvania and North 19th Street, I performed a passenger side approach and identified myself, and the reason for the stop being the registered owner being under license suspension.

 

The driver, Alyssa Smith, advised she was aware of her license suspension but had driving privileges for work and had just gotten off of work but was searching for her dog that ran away earlier that evening.

 

Alyssa handed me her identification card, which I confirmed through dispatch was under a license suspension with driving privileges, but did not have her registration or insurance on her. I then advised Alyssa if she could have a valid driver be at our location in a short time, I would not tow the vehicle. A short time later Shawn Carver arrived on scene and produced a valid license which I confirmed through dispatch. Shawn Carver took possession of the vehicle, and I advised Alyssa not to drive for any reason not listed on her privileges. 

 

Alyssa agreed and I cleared without further incident.

 

After discussing with dispatch, I mistook the license suspension with privileges as dispatch advised to me that her driving privileges were revoked through Portage County Court as of 3/20/21.  I then went to the residence (595 West Maryland Ave.) and advised Alyssa she was going to receive a citation as her driving privileges were revoked.

 

I completed citation #032051 for DUS 4510.11, and advised Alyssa to contact the court for further information on the court date and any other questions she may have. I then cleared without further incident.

 

Nothing further to report.

Traffic - 100 block of S. 12th Street

 

Cited: Henry Mumaw, 21, 93 edgewater Dr., Poland, Oh

 

Charge: SCO:333.03 Speed(53/35)

 

 

On 04-24-2021 at 11:24 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303. While stationary along the roadside facing south in the 100 block of 5. 12fhS treet, I observed a silver SUV traveling northbound on 5. 12th street near E. Georgia Avenue at a rate of speed that was visibly higher than that of the posted 35 MPH limit. Upon activating the patrol cars front-facing radar antenna, I obtained a locked speed of 53 MPH.

 

Once the vehicle passed by my location, I activated the patrol car's overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop. The silver Jeep Lerada, being Ohio Registration FXP 1825, came to a complete stop in the 100 block of S.12th Street near the train tracks. I then performed a passenger side approach and made contact with the driver, as well as front seat passenger. In speaking with the driver, I identified myself as well as informed him of the reason for the stop. When I asked if he was aware of his speed, the driver said that he believed that he was only going 40 MPH. I then requested his driver license, vehicle registration, as well as proof of insurance. The driver produced an Ohio Driver License that identified him as Henry Mumaw. I also at this point noticed that both he and his passenger appeared very anxious, as was evident by their shaking and inability to maintain eye contact while I was speaking with them.

 

I also asked the passenger if I could see his identification, with him handing me an Ohio Identification card that showed him to be Jeriah Doyle.

 

I then returned to my patrol car, with Ptl. Paterson arriving to my location. In speaking with Paterson, I advised him that I would be writing the driver a citation for speed as soon as I was advised of his driving and warrant status by dispatch.

 

Several seconds later I was informed by dispatch that Mumaw's driver license was expired as of 01-11-2021. It should be noted that this falls under the exemption dates for the Covid-19 pandemic. I then requested Ptl. Paterson to speak with the driver and ask for consent to search the vehicle while I wrote the citation.

 

Paterson returned several minutes later and advised that he noticed the nervous behavior from the two subjects as well and that Mumaw declined his request to perform a consent search on the vehicle.

 

Due to the behavior of the two subjects indicating possible criminal activity, I asked if Ptl. Stanton was available with K9 Radar, with him advising that he was not. I then wrote Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032077 to Mumaw. I cited Mumaw for speed(Sebring Codified Ordnance 333.03), for going 53 MPH in the marked 35MPH zone. I then returned to his vehicle where he signed the citation, was given his copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 on the following business day for instructions on how to either pay the citation or contest it if he wished to do so.

 

Both units then cleared from the stop with nothing additional to report at this time.

Traffic Stop - E. Ohio Ave at MCC#3

 

Cited: Alberto Delavirgen, 32 y/o, 4424 Fernbrooke Rd, Las Vegas

 

Charges:

335.02 Denied Driver License

335.09 Display of License Plate

 

 

On 04/08/2021 at approximately 2239 hours, I (Ptl. Stanton), witnessed a white 4 door sedan travel East on Ohio Ave tram the itersection of 15th and Ohio. I got behind said vehicle and witnessed it did not have a visible license plate. While searching for a plate, I witnessed the vehicle briefly go over the solid double yellow line and go back into the appropriate lane. I then saw the vehicle go very close and briefly touching the solid white line as well. Unable to see a plate anywhere to the rear of the vehicle. I initiated the traffic stop at approximately 2243 hours. At this time we were outside of the Mahaning County Court #3 parking lot and the vehicle pulled into the lot and parked.

 

Upon my foot approach to the vehicle, I witnessed a male with a shirt on his had over his hat obscuring his face, I proceeded to ask for a license, insurance and registration of the vehicle. The driver explained he could not find any of it and I morioned to his dash where what looked to be a card of some kind. This was indeed his license.

 

After securing this, I explained why I stopped him. He acted surprised that he did not have a rear tag on his vehicle. He explained he bought the vehicle and is driving across country. At this time he produced a title to the vehicle and a hand written bill of sale stating he bought the vehicle.

 

I told the driver identified as Alberto Delavirgen to stay in his vehicle and look for license plate or tag as I went back to my cruiser. With further investigation, the driver is denied through Colorado court and a bench warrant was issued.

 

I began writing a citation and I called for another unit. Ptl. Peterman #507 arrived on scene as well for officer safety. The driver was out of his vehicle at this time and actively looking through his trunk and other doors for what I believe to be the temporary tag.  I had Ptl. Peterman watch the subject while I completed the citation.

 

I issued Alberto a citation for No OL SCO 335.02 and Display of Plate SCO 335.09. I called for a tow of the vehicle at this time as well. Upon issuing the citation, the driver produced a temporary tag of the vehicle. This tag came back to a Barbara Mark out of Nevada. I explained that nothing is coming back to him as a rightful owner legally at this time and since he cannot drive due to no license, the vehicle is under police hold-it the tow yard. The driver became argumentative and demanded to gather his things and speak to my supervisor.

 

I inventoried the vehicle contents and the driver denied a consent to search. I explained the tow inventory and the driver was argumentative about it but stayed with Ptl. Peterman while I conducted the inventory. The driver then wanted to obtain objects from the vehicle.

 

The tow driver is waiting at this time for him to clear the vehicle for safety reasons and kept finding reason to re-enter it. After two bags and a small safe were secured, I ordered the driver to step away from the vehicle and stop impeding the tow driver from his job. The driver (Alberta) became increasingly argumentative as well. Alberto accused the Tow driver of stealing the key to the vehicle and it was determined a Key Fob was nearby and that was how the vehicle was able to start for the tow driver.

 

 

The driver then said the key must be somewhere in the vehicle and he doesn't know where it is (it is not on his person). After the tow driver secured the vehicle, Ptl. Peterman curtesy escorted the driver to a hotel in Alliance since he had no where to stay for the night.

On Friday 04/02/2021 at approximately 1601 hours, I (Ptl. Stanton) conducted a traffic stap on a silver SUV. The SUV had an obstructed license plate (the tailgate trim was hanging in front of it).

 

During the traffic stop it was discovered the temporary tag is expired, the driver did not have her license on her as well. Running her name and date of birth, I discovered she is also an expired driver. I spoke to the driver Identified as Vanessa and she stated she thought she had until July to fix her tag and license. She did not have her seatbelt on from the start of the traffic stop and when I was speaking to her.

 

I asked her where she was coming from and going to. She was dropping her daughter off at her dads in Sebring.

 

After verifying the residence, I issued her a citation for the seat belt and the obstructed plate. I then explained and warned her about the license and tag and to correct those as soon as possible. Vanessa was cooperative and respectful through-out the entire traffic stop. I explained how to take care of the citation and I cleared with no issues.

While sitting stationary in the parking lot of Haiss Fabripart, located at 100 5. 12th St., I observed a silver minivan traveling northbound on S. 12th street near E.

Several minutes later, I was advised by dispatch that Hawkins's driver license was under a noncompliance suspension. I then returned to Hawkins's vehicle where I advised her of this.

On 03-20-2021 at 18:13 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303. While sitting stationary at the intersection of N. Johnson Road and W, Ohio Avenue, I observed tan Chevrolet Cruze, that was traveling eastbound on W. Ohio Avenue, go through the intersection, without stopping for the posted stop sign or flashing red light. Upon witnessing this, I activated the patrol cars overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop. The tan Cruze, bearing Ohio registration HWU 4325, came to a complete stop in the 600 block of W. Ohio Avenue.

 

Upon approaching the vehicle and making contact with the driver, I informed him of the reason for the stop as well as requested his driver license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. The driver immediately began making statements about driving on an SR22 and not having his driver license on him. The driver was unable to produce any of the requested documents, but was able to provide me with his name, date of birth and social security number. The driver said that his name was Jacob Weese.  When I asked if he had a valid driver license, Mr. Weese said that he did.

 

I then returned to my patrol car where I relayed the information that Weese provided me to dispatch. Ptl. Russell arrived on scene at this time as well. I was advised by dispatch that Weese was currently under three separate driver license suspensions. I then exited my patrol car and again approached Weese's vehicle. I advised Weese that his driver license was under suspension and requested that he exit the vehicle. Once Weese was out of the vehicle, I asked if he was aware of his suspensions. Weese again began making statements about SR22's, Judge Zumbar, and that he should have an SR22 to drive. I then informed him that an SR22 is not a driver license and that we both know that. Weese said that he did and that he knew his driver license was suspended.

 

I then went back to my patrol car and wrote Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032022 to Weese. I cited Weese for Driving Under Suspension (ORC 4510.11), as well as Obedience to Traffic Control Devices (ORC 4511.12).

 

Upon returning to the vehicle, Weese signed the citation, was given his copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 regarding his mandatory court appearance. I also relayed his passenger, Merrideth Ormiston's information to dispatch. Because Ormiston was valid, I allowed her to drive the vehicle in lieu of towing it, after contacting her daughter, Alexandrea Romigh, who the vehicle was registered to, and receiving consent from her to do so.

 

A consent search was also conducted on the vehicle with no weapons or contraband being located. Both units then cleared from the stop with nothing additional to report at this time.

On 03-13-2021 at 15:40 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 303. While stationary in the parking lot of Trinity Lutheran Church, located at 930 N. 12th Street, I observed a tan Dodge Status traveling southbound on N. 12th Street that did not appear to have a visible registration tag.

 

The vehicle turned right from N. 12th street and began traveling westbound On E. Vermont Avenue. As I turned the corner in my patrol car, I noticed Brandon Green, who I know to have a suspended driver license, exiting the driver seat of the vehicle in the driveway of 366 E. Vermont Avenue. I also noticed that there was no visible registration on the vehicle.

 

I then pulled up behind the vehicle and made contact with Mr. Green. When I informed him that I was stopping him because he did not have any visible registration, he reached into the vehicle and pulled out a temporary Ohio registration tag that had been laying between the rear passenger seats and rear window. I also asked Green if his driver license was still suspended, with him saying that they were but he had driving privileges through East Liverpool.

 

Upon running this registration (K428397) through dispatch, I was advised that it belonged on 2003 a Ford truck that was registered to a David Gamble in East Liverpool, Ohio. I was also advised that the plates had expired on September 14,2020. In addition to this, I was advised that Mr. Green's license was suspended, that he did not have any driving privileges, and that he had been cited for driving under suspension three times within the last year and that there was a confiscation order placed on his driver license by the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.

 

At this point I also noticed the expiration date on the tags had whiteout covering the original date and Apr 12, 2021 being rewritten over it.

 

I then asked Green for his driver license, with him producing an Ohio identification card. I also asked green whose residence we were at, with him saying he believed it was his friend, Jesse Miller's house. At this point I received consent to conduct a pat-down of Green's person for weapons, I noted that he had a small folding pocked knife that I removed from his right pocket, with me advising him that I would be holding onto it for the duration of our encounter. Green also consented to a search of his pockets, with no contraband being found.

 

Ptl. Russell arrived to our location at around this time with me returning to my patrol car to write Mr. Green his citations. Mr. Green received Uniform Traffic Citation No's. 032020 and 032021. Mr. Green was cited for Driving Under Suspension (ORC: 4510.11), Fictitious Plates (QRC 4549.08), and Display of License Plates (ORC 4503.21). Mr. Green signed the citations, was given his copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3.

 

An administrative inventory af the vehicle was conducted by Ptl. Russell with nothing of value being located not any weapons or contraband. After running the vehicles VIN number through dispatch, I was advised that it was showing up as still being registered to a Doris E. George of Alliance. The vehicle was then towed to Sebring Tire's impound lot, with a hold being placed on the vehicle.

 

Both Ptl. Russell and I then cleared from the stop with nothing additional to report at this time.

While stationary in the parking lot of Heiss Fabripart. Located at 100 S. 12th Street, I observed a southbound Ford Explorer, white in color that was traveling southbound on S. 12th Street at a rate of speed that was noticeably higher than that of the posted 35MPH limit.

 

Upon activating the front-facing radar antenna to the patrol cars in-car radar system, I obtained a locked speed of 55MPH as the vehicle traveled though the 300 block of S. 12th Street.

 

I then activated the overhead emergency lights on the patrol car and pulled onto the roadway. The White Explorer bearing Ohio Registration HDQ 8087, came to a stop between the village limits sign and U.S. Route 62 on S. 12th Street.

Charges:

SCO: 335.01  Driver License or Commercial Driver License Required

 

SCO: 335.09  Display of License Plates or Validation Stickers

 

 

On 01-16-2021 at 15:00 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 301.

 

While patrolling eastbound in the 300 block of E, Ohio Ave., I noticed that the vehicle in front of me, a later 1990's model Pontiac Sunfire that was green in color, did not appear to have a license plate attached to it. 

 

Upon noticing this I activated my overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop.  The vehicle slowed down before coming to a complete stop in the 400 block of E. Ohio. As my patrol car approached closer to the subject vehicle, I was able to notice what appeared to be an Ohio temporary tag that was positioned vertically at the far end of the rear window on the driver side.  Due to the positioning of the tag, it was difficult to see and not in plain view .  I did note that the registration numbers were K997418 as I got closer.

 

I then approached the vehicle and made contact with the male driver, I informed him of the reason for the stop as well as asked him for his Driver License, Vehicle Registration, and proof of insurance, I also noted a female subject in the front passenger seat who I know to be Kristina Tyson. The driver produced an Ohio Temporary Permit that identified him as Paul Michael Lee Bates. When I asked Bates if he had a valid driver license, he said that he should and that the Bureau of Motor Vehicles told him that was his license. I then  returned to my patrol car and relayed both Bates's and Tyson's information to dispatch.

 

It was at this time discovered that Bates's Driver License had expired on 03-07-2020, but that he did have a valid Temporary Permit. It should be noted that the expiration of Bates's Driver License pre-dated the declared state of emergency for Covid-19. I was also advised by dispatch at this time that Tyson's Driver License was under and active suspension.

 

I then returned to the subject vehicle where I asked Tyson if she had a valid driver license, with her informing me that she did not and that her License was suspended. At this point I asked Paul if he understood that he could not drive on a Temporary Permit without a passenger who held a valid Driver License, with him advising me that he was. I then instructed Bates to exit the vehicle, with him complying with my request. I also asked for and received consent to conduct a patdown search of his person, with me also explicitly asking for and receiving consent to search his pockets. No weapons or contraband were located during this search.

 

I then asked Tyson to exit the vehicle and instructed her to speak with Ptl. Russel, who was standing on the passenger side of the vehicle.  Tyson complied with my request as well. At this point I requested Sebring Tire to respond to my location as well as began an administrative inventory of the vehicle, with no weapons, contraband, or anything of significant value being located.

 

Sebring Tire arrived on scene several minutes later, with Mike Springer being the tow operator.  It should be noted that I received the key to the vehicle from the keyring at Bates's request, with me leaving it in the vehicle's ignition and the other keys on the ring being given to Bates. Sebring Tire then departed from the scene with the vehicle, with no holds being placed on it.

 

After Sebring Tire Departed from the scene, I issued Uniform Traffic Citation No.032012 to Bates.  I cited Bates for Driver License Required (SCO: 335.01) as well as Display of License Plates (SCO: 335.09).   Bates signed the citation was given his copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 on the next business day for information on when his mandatory court appearance would be.  Ptl. Russell then provided both Bates and Tyson with a courtesy transport to their residence at 175 W.,Ohio Avenue. I then cleared from the stop with nothing additional to report at this time.

Arrest: Ronald Heestand, 1426 Pleasnat Ridge St. NE Minerva,

 

Charge: 2925.11 (F5) Possesion of Cantrolled Substance / Bond $10,000

 

 

On 05-11-2020 at 01:58 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 301. While traveling westbound in the 1400 block of West Ohio Avenue, I observed a male subject on a black and yellow bicycle, who was also traveling westbound on Ohio Avenue. As I drove past, I noticed that the subject's bicycle was without the proper rear illumination.

 

 

Upon noticing this, I activated my overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop on the black and yellow Mongoose mountain bike.

 

Upon making contact with the male subject who was riding the bicycle. I advised him of the reason that I was stopping him and asked for his Identification. While I was speaking to the subject, I noticed that he appeared very nervous with him visibly shaking. The subject then produced an Ohio Department of Corrections Inmate identification card that identified him as

 

Ronald Lee Heestand.

 

After relaying Heestand's information to dispatch and while I was waiting for a return of information, I asked Mr. Heestand what he had been incarcerated for and when he had been released. Heestand said that he had been released several months ago and had been incarcerated for possession of drugs. When I asked if he had any drugs on him at the moment, he said that he did not. I then asked for and received consent to search his person, with me explicitly asking for and receiving consent to search his pockets for drugs. Prior to beginning my search, Heestand did tell me that he had a knife In his waistband, which I took and held onto for the duration of our encounter. Ptl.Peterman also arrived to my location at around this time.

 

Inside the left pocket of Heestand's shorts I found a brown glasses case, with a used glass ball pipe, a gold in color pill container, and several cotton swabs being inside.

 

Upon locating this I placed Heestand in handcuffs, which were properly spaced and double locked.

 

 

While I was concluding my search of Heestand's pockets, Ptl. Peterman opened the gold pill container that had been inside the glasses case. W. Peterman advised that it contained what appeared to be crystal meth. After finishing my search of Heestand's pockets, I began a search of his backpack. Prior to doing so Heestand did tell me that it contained what he was told was marijuana, with me locating the suspected marijuana inside a clear plastic container. Also, inside the backpack was a butane torch, which based upon my training and experience is commonly used to smoke methamphetamine. No other contraband was located.

 

After concluding my search and verifying that Heestand did not have any active warrants for his arrest I removed him from my handcuffs. I then wrote Uniform Traffic Citation No. 031894 to Heestand for lights and reflectors required on bicycles. (Sebring Codified Ordinance 373.06).

 

 

Heestand then signed the citation and was advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for instructions on how to either pay the citation or for information on how to contest it if he wished to do so. Heestand was then given his copy of the citation. I also informed Heestand that he would be receiving a summons for illegal possession of drug paraphernalia (ORC:2925,14), for  the ball pipe that was found on him.

 

Ptl. Peterman and I then cleared from the stop.

 

 

Upon returning to the police station, I prepared the necessary paperwork for a summons to be issued to Heestand, The suspected methamphetamine, ball pipe, and marijuana were secured in temporary evidence locker #1. The suspected methamphetamine will be sent to Ohio BCI with additional charges possible pending the results of chemistry testing.

Following Narrative by Ptl. Marchionda #505

 

Upon arrival at 756 N. 15th St. I establised contact with the complainant, Dale Yaggi. Dale advised he received am e-mail from PNC to inform him unauthorized activity may have occurred with his PNC credit card. Dale stated his PNC credit card was supposed to be locked in a filing cabinet located downstairs but he suspects his daughter, Jessica Yaggi, broke into the cabinet and took it.  Dale provided a copy of the email showing two charges on 11/1/2020 were flagged: CASH APP ANTHONY CLARKE $20.60 and TACO BELL #1653 ALLIANCE OH $28.77.

 

I asked Dale to show me the filing cabinet in the basement and upon inspection of the cabinet I observed tool marks on the lock. Dale stated in addition to the PNC card, an Amazon card was taken but the account has been closed for some time.  Dale believes Jessica accessed the cabinet sometime either on the 30th or 31st of October when he allowed her to come to the residence to retrieve some belongings from a bedroom on the second floor.

 

A roommate of Dales was also present at the time of the report.  I asked (roommate) when was the last time he saw Jessica and he advised he last saw her either Friday night (30th) or Saturday morning (31st).  Dale stated he wanted to pursue charges against Jessica in this matter.

 

This case will remain open pending further investigation.

 

 

 

Following Narrative by Det. Reed #507

 

On 11-08-2020. I was advised by Ptl. Marchionda of a report of credit card fraud that he had taken from a Dale Yaggi on 11-02-2020. After reviewing the case file, I made contact with Mr. Yaggi at his residence. In speaking with Mr. Yaggi, he advised that his daughter, Jessica Yaggi, who was present in the residence at around the time his locked file cabinet had been forcibly entered and his PNC Bank card removed, admitted to him that she took the card and returned it. Mr. Yaggi said that Jessica was at her mother's house, located at 540 W. Oregon Avenue when she returned it to him, and this occurred on either 11-04 or 11-05. Mr. Yaggi said that Jessica admitted to him that she forced open the locked file cabinet, with her stating "it's so easy to get into.

 

Mr. Yaggi said that he still wished to pursue charges in the matter, with him also providing me with a bank account summary that listed the fraudulent charges. A total of six charges were listed which totaled $108.00. Located the card where used included Taco Bell #1653 in Alliance,Ohio, a Cash App transfer to an Anthony Clarke, Marathon gas station In Alliance, Dollar General #9790 Alliance, Ohio, Circle K #05386 in Alliance, Ohio, as well as Papa John's #0817 in Alliance, Ohio. Mr. Yaggi further advised that Jessica only admitted to having purchased gas using the card.

 

After speaking wlth Mr. Yaggi, I attempted to make phone contact with Jessica using the phone number provided by Mr. Yaggi. After being unable to do so, I went to Jessica's mother's house, located at 540 ? W. Oregon Avenue. Although a red Pontiac Vibe was in the driveway that was registered to Jessica, I did not recelve an answer when I knocked on the door. Further attempts will be made to contact Jessica before this case is presented for prosecutorial review for charges and the investigation will be ongoing.

 

Nothing additional to report at this time.

 

 

 

On 11-12-2020 I spoke with Prosecutor Gary Van Brocklin regarding this case. Prosecutor Van Brocklin approved charges for theft, ORC 2913.02(A)(1). Because the item stolen was a credit card, this offense is a felony of the fifth degree. (ORC 2913.71 (A) Felony of fifth degree regardless of the value of the property).

 

On 11-13-2020, a warrant was issued for the arrest of Jessica Yaggi on this charge. Nothing additional to report at this tlme.

Charge: Warrant (theft)

On 11-25-2020 I received information that Shawn Davner, who was wanted on 
warrants in both Columbiana and Stark counties, was staying with Robert Chapin at 
225 W. Oregon Avenue. 

Upon arriving to the address I made contact with Mr. Chapin at the front door. I asked 
Mr. Chapin Shawn Davner was st the residence, with him advising that he was end 
that he was in the upstairs bedroom.

I then asked if I could enter the residence and go upstairs to speak with Davner, with 
Chapin inviting me inside. Chapin and I then went upstairs where he told Davner, who 
was inside a bedroom with the door closed, that there was someone here to see him. 
Davner said "just them I'm not here". I then advised Davner who I was and that I was 
with the $ebring Police Department, as well as instructed him to come out of the 
bedroom. Davner initialy failed to comply with my request saying that he was getting 
dressed. At this point I attempted to open the door and found it to be locked. Due to 
Davner failing to comply with my request several times, I advised him that if he did not 
open the door I would force entry.

Davner then opened the door, with me entering and informing him that he had an 
active warrant for his arrest. At this time I noticed Davner's gaze was fixated on a 
closet in the room, which had the door opened and a large amount of clothes inside. 
When I asked if he were alone in the room Davner, appeared to nod at the closet. In 
order to ensure officer safety, I then placed Davner in handcuffs, which were properly 
spaced and double-locked, so that I could check the closet. While checking the closet 
with my department issued taser drawn and turned on I found a female subject hiding 
inside underneath a pile of clothes, I ordered the subject out as well as asked for her 
name and date of birth.

The subject identified herself as Dana Brown and was found to have an active warrant 
for her arrest out of Columbiana County.

I then removed the handcuffs from Davner so that he could get dressed. Chief Harris 
arrived to the residence at this time as well. Once Davner and Brown were fully 
dressed I secured both of them in handcuffs, which were properly spaced and double 
locked, as well as searched them for weapons or contraband. I also checked the area 
in their immediate vicinity at time of arrest with no weapons or contraband being 
located. After receiving confirmation that Columbiana County would pick up Brown and 
Stark would pick up Davner it was agreed that both agencies would meet me in the 
parking lot of the former Value City Department store to take each into custody. Both 
subjects were secured in the back of car 303 before being transported to this location. 

Once at the Value City Parking lot I met with deputies from Columbiana and Stark 
counties with custody of both subjects being exchanged without incident.

Case No.: 20011098 

Traffic - 25933 U.S. 62 Beloit, OH

CITED: Mateo Francisco, age 28, 597 Walnut St. Salem, Ohio

Charges: 
SCO: 335.01 Driver License Required

SCO: 331.08 Driving Within Marked Lanes

On 11-28-2020 at 12:58 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 
303.

While I was in the left turn lane for the eastbound lane of travel on U.S. 62 at the 
intersection of S. 12th Street, a westbound gray Ford Fusion entered the lane 
attempting to turn left into Western Reserve Auto. As the vehicle proceeded further into 
the lane, I had to slow my patrol car to a near stop to avoid a collision.

I immediately activated my overhead emergency lights, following the gray Fusion (OH 
Reg. JCR 6277) into the parking lot of Western Reserve Auto. Upon approaching the 
vehicle, I made contact with the driver and advised him of the reason for the stop. 1 
requested the driver's vehicle registration, proof of insurance as well as driver license . 
The driver was only able to produce an Ohio Identification Card, which identified him 
as Sebastian Francisco. Because Mr. Francisco spoke very little English, his front seat 
passenger, Juan P. Gomez, began attempting to communicate with me for him. 
Francisco however, did acknowledge that he did not have a driver license at this point, 
with this later being confirmed by dispatch.

I then returned to my patrol car, requested a Smith Township unit to respond to my 
location, as well as began writing Uniform Traffic Citation No. 032008 to Francisco. 
Several minutes later, Sgt. Star, with the Smith Township Police Department,  arrived 
to my location. I then returned to Mr. Francisco's vehicle, with him signing his citation, 
being provided a copy, as well as being informed to contact Mahoning County Court #3 
for instructions on further proceedings in the case. Francisco was cited for driver 
license required (SCO: 335.01) as well as driving within marked lanes (SCO:331.08).

After giving Francisco the citation and instructions on how to properly address it, I 
requested all occupants out of the vehicle. I also advised dispatch to send Sebring Tire 
to my location to impound the vehicle. An administrative inventory was conducted with 
no weapons, contraband, or anything of value being located. 

Sebring Tire then arrived and began loading the vehicle on their truck. 

A Mascos Cruz, who spoke fluent English also arrived at this time to give Francisco 
and his passengers a ride home. Using both Cruz and Gomez to interpret, I again 
reiterated to Francisco that he needed to contact Mahoning County Court #3 as soon 
as possible for instructions on how to address the citation. Francisco was also advised 
on how to retrieve his vehicle from impound. Sebring Tire, Sgt. Star, and I all three 
then cleared from the stop with nothing additional to report at this time.

ORC: 2913.02(A)(3) Theft (By Deception) / Bond $1,250

ORC: 2913.21 Misuse of credit cards  / Bond $1,250

On 11-13-2020 at 14:21 hours, I was met on station by a Mary Vargas, who wished to 
make a
complaint regarding unauthorized charges on her bank debit card. Mary advised that 
her live-in boyfriend, Andre Sanders, had used her debit card information to make 
multiple purchases on Amazon.com. Vargas advised that Sanders obtained her 
Information after she allowed him to make one purchase using her card on Amazon on 
10-23-2020 for $309.95. Vargas advised that this was the only charge that she 
authorized Sanders to make using her debit card.

I then accompanied Vargas to the Sebring Huntington Bank, located at 146 E. Ohio 
Ave., where she obtained a printout of her banking transactions between 10/02/2020 
and 11/12/2020. On the transaction sheet I noted 11 transactions using Amazon.com, 
excluding the initial transaction that Vargas said that she authorized, totaling $681.59.  
Vargas advised that she has never made any purchases using amazon.com and that 
all of the transactions were done by Sanders.  Vargas also advised that she wanted to 
pursue charges in the matter, with her providing me with a voluntary witness statement 
detailing the incidents before leaving the police station.

0n ,11-14-2020, I made contact with Sanders at 333 W. Oregon Avenue, where he 
lives with Vargas.

In speaking with Sanders I advised him of the complaint and asked what had 
happened. Sanders advised that Vargas authorized the transaction and that he was 
supposed to be paying her back. Sanders denied ever having made any transactions 
without the consent of Vargas. When I asked what he had purchased using Vargas's 
debit card, Sanders said that he bought DJ'ing equipment, hair clippers, and two 
drones. Sanders did provide me a witness statement in which he denied making any 
unauthorized purchases.

While Sanders was outside the residence I again spoke with Vargas about the matter. 
Vargas reiterated that she only authorized Sanders to make one transaction using her 
debit card, that he was supposed to pay her back for that one, and all the other 
charges had ocurred without her consent or knowledge.

In speaking further with Sanders about the purchases, he advised that he still had the 
boxes to the items he had ordered. With Sanders consent photographed the shipping 
labels of the boxes that they had come in as well as the Amazon order history that he 
logged onto using his phone. 

I advised both parties to keep the peace before clearing from the call, Sanders advised 
that this would not be an issue and that he intends to go back to Akron where he lived 
prior to moving to Sebring. 

This case will be forwarded to Prosecutor Van Bracklin for review and consideration of 
possible charges.

On this date and time, I was dispatched to 375 E. Oregon Ave ref to a loud music

inside the residence, but the music was at a low level. As I passed the residence, I 
could hear the music get turned up to the point I wpuld hear the music as I reached the

barely hear my knock. I then knocked on the window facing 395 E. Oregon but again

male to turn the music down.

male yelling " Is there a fucking problem, and a bunch of Fucking Pussies". I 
ascertained from Diana who the male was and she stated Virgil and he wasn't taking 
me. At this point she advised to turn the music down, but the music just kept playing 
loudly. I then advised the male to come out and speak to me and he advised that he 
knows his rights and that if I didn't have a warrant he didn't have to come out. I again 
advised him to come out, and he stepped out and advised, Here I am. I advised Virgil 
of the issue with the music and the complaints, and he continued to argue stating he 
could play his music as loud as he wants until 10 Pm. I again explained the Sebring

Traffic Stop
OHIO and 15 th

CITED: Ronald Handy, 70, 18418 5th Street, Beloit 

CHARGE: ORD: 337.24 Motor Vehicle Stop Light


On 11/11/2020 at approximately 1658 hours, I (Ptl. Stanton), initiated a traffic stop on 
Ohio
Ave near 15th street. I initiated said stop due to witnessing a white Honda SUV having 
only one operational stop light when stopped at the intersection. The driver (Ronald 
Handy) stated he just purchased the vehicle and was not aware of the vehicles faulty 
light. 

After running the vehicles license plate through Sebring Dispatch, I was informed the 
plate belongs to a black GMC truck. 

I reverified this information and approached Ronald again to discuss the discrepancy. 
Ronald admitted to previously owning a blue Dodge Truck before this vehicle (a white 
Honda SUV). I asked if Ronald had a proof of purchase and he stated it was at the 
shop in Salem which he came from. Ronald had no other information besides an old 
registration found in the vehicle from the rightful owner. 

I verified that the vehicle was not reported stolen at this time.

I issued Ronald a citation for the stoplight, Sebring ORD: 337.24 (MM) - Ticket # 
031383.

Ronald was also told he has a mandated court appearance since he does not have 
proof of ownership and no proof of insurance at this time. I explained that the vehicle 
should be towed and Ronald be cited for Fictitious Plates as well to Ronald. I stated 
that if he does indeed own the vehicle to provide the proof of ownership and everything 
will be fine. But if he does not own the vehicle the court may place a hold on the 
vehicle or take ownership of it. 

Further explaining the confusion and I cannot just let this go but I do not want to cause 
unneeded cost to the driver.

Ronald was understanding and cooperative through out the stop and very pleasant.

While performing patrol duties east bound on W. Virginia between N. 16th and N. 17th 
St., I observed a white vehicle fail to fully cease motion at a stop sign.  

Upon observing this traffic violation I performed a traffic stop on the vehicle by 
activating my emergency overhead lights and audible siren. I relayed the license 
information to dispatch (Pennsylvania plate # LJY 2336) as the vehicle slowly pulled off 
onto the side of the road near N. 17th St. I approached the vehicle and identified 
myself and the reason for the stop. 

At this time. Sgt. Kelm #503. Ptl. Brindack #504, and Ptl. Stanton #506 had arrived on 
scene to assist me with the stop. The driver, later Identified as Francis Joseph Palguta, 
stated to officers he did not have his identificatiion on his person.  I asked Francis for 
his information in which he gave to me. I advised to Francis that another officer, Ptl. 
Stanton, wanted to speak with him as well while I run his information.

After exchanging my information of the stop thus far with K9 Stanton I returned to my 
marked cruiser #303 and relayed the drivers information to Dispatch. Dispatch relayed 
to myself that Francis was suspended out of Ohio. Ptl. Stanton was denied consent to 
search the vehicle, then advised Francis, he would be conducting an open air sniff 
around the vehicle with K9 Radar. 

Ptl. Stanton asked Francis to exit the Vehicle to which Francis complied. Francis was 
then led to the front of my Vehicle as Ptl. Brindack performed a pat down for weapons. 
K9 Radar positively alerted to the vehicle, giving officers probable cause to search the 
vehicle. Francis was placed in handcuffs and detained at this time.

On completion of the search two(2) baggies of what appeared to be a white powdery 
substance were discovered, as well as a $10 bill concealing a small amount of the 
same white powdery substance, and a $1 bill with a white powdery residue. 

Along with the current evidence, a package of tobacco rolling paper, an albuterol 
inhaler, an oval white pill(markings SG on the front, and 178 on the back of the pill) an 
asb tray with drug paraphernalia, $104 dollars, and a naloxone kit was discovered and 
seized as evidence. 

I radioed dispatch if Ptl. Toussant #380 STPD would be able to perfom a field drug test 
on the suspected baggies of narcotics. A short time later, Ptl. Toussant arrived on 
scene. Ptl. Toussant used two(2) field drug tests designated for MDMA, Ectasy, and 
Methamphetamines, and a positive result was noted on both tests. Upon this 
observation, Francis was walked back to the patrol vehicle by Ptl. Stanton, placed 
under arrest, and advised of his Miranda rights.

Springers Towing arrived on scene to tow the vehicle, and a court hold was placed on 
the vehicle. I transported Francis back to station, and began jail paperwork. On station, 
officers weighed the amount of suspected narcotics, and discovered a weight of 5 
grams, revealing bulk weight. 

Francis was now advised he was charged with Traffic control device(SCO 313.01),

Charges: 

2923.12 (F-4) Carrying Concealed Weapons  / Bond $4,000

SCO 335.10 (MM)  Fictitious Plates


While patrolling along the 200 east block of Ohio ave. I ran plate# HWE 5494, with 
which dispatch returned to a black Saturn, with the registered owner having a warrant 
out of Athens, Ohio. I observed the plates were currently located on a white 2003 
Chevrolet venture van. The vehicle stopped at a gas pump at the Circle K located on 
east Ohio Ave. I waited for the vehicle to leave the parking lot of Circle K, and 
activated my emergency overhead lights, and audible siren at the intersection of 
N.14th St. and E Maryland. The vehicle then came to a stop in the 400 N. block of 14th 
St.

As Sgt. Kelm #503 arrived on scene to assist me, I approached the vehicle and 
identified myself and the reason for the stop.  The driver and registered owner of said 
vehicle, Amber McCombs, states she was "heading home after getting food from Circle 
K".  I asked Amber if she was aware her license plate was currently registered to a 
black Saturn to which she responds "That was my last car, and I has it transfered to 
this car when I bought it".  Amber also states being unaware she currently had a 
warrant out of Athens, Oh.  I asked Amber to shut her vehicle  off and exit it.  Amber 
was slightly hesitant and began to argue with myself about the warrant.

I again advised Amber to step out of the vehicle. Amber complied with my second 
request, and exited the vehicle. I then placed Amber in handcuffs and advised her she 
was detained until further news  from dispatch if Athens would want Amber. 

Dispatch advised the warrant was county pickup only and Amber was then released 
from handcuffs. 

Amber advised officers that she had a handgun located inside the vehicle. I asked 
Amber where the handgun was located, and Amber advised me  "it's under there" as 
she began to reach inside the vehicle.  I grabbed Ambers hand and advised her not to 
reach for any weapons in the presence of officers during our investigation. I then 
observed the handgun, an unloaded Springfield .45 ACP concealed in the bottom of 
the center console, under a plastic cover.

I asked Amber to again turn around and advised she is being detained pending a 
further investigation into the concealed handgun. I asked Amber if she had a CCW, to 
which she stated "no I do not.". Amber then stated to officers she had a full magazine 
of .45 ACP in the back seat. Amber was advised she was now under arrest for carry 
concealed weapons violation 2923.12 F-4, and would be receiving a traffic citation for 
fictitious plates SCO 335.10 MM. 

I advised dispatch of having one in custody, placing Amber in the back of my patrol 
vehicle while also ensuring the handcuffs were
properly gapped and double locked. I also advised Amber her car would be getting 
towed, and radioed dispatch for Springers Towing to bring a tow truck.

Upon a vehicle inventory, a fully loaded magazine of .45 ACP was discovered in an 
open backpack located in the 2nd row back seats, in between both, and placed where 
readily accessible to the driver, and a black plastic box containing a 1 gram baggie of a 
green leafy substance. 

After vehicle inventory was completed, and Springers towing obtained the vehicle both 
units returned to station to begin paperwork. 

Amber was transported to station, and advised of her Miranda rights.

Amber was photographed, and received her traffic citation. Mahoning county jail was 
contacted by dispatch, and approved to have Amber brought to MCJ. Paperwork for 
MCJ was completed, and Amber was placed back into my patrol vehicle, placed in a 
seatbelt for her safety, and transported to MCJ wlthout Incident. 

Upon my return from MCJ evidence was placed into locker #1, with the baggie of 
green leafy substance marked for destruction. Nothing further to report.

I was patrolling the area of W. Maryland near N. 20th when I spotted 3 individuals, 2 
riding on mountain - style bicycles, and 1 on a smaller BMX-looking bicycle all of which 
had no lights on the front or rear of the bicycles. I closed my distance between the 
individuals to attempt to stop them when they observed me following them, leading 
one of the bicyclists to turn down fhe alleyway between the 500 W. block of Ohio and 
Maryland. I followed the other two when they hastily turned into the alleyway  between 
the 500 W. block of Ohio and Oregon, losing the individuals in the alleyway.  I then 
patroled the surrounding area before parking for stationary patrol on foot in my efforts 
to spot the bicyclists.

I again started patrols around the 500 W. block of Pennsylvania, turning onto N. 19th 
St. I approched the stop sign at Oregon when I again spotted two of the individuals, 
this time one was on foot and the other was still on the BMX bicycle. I advised this 
information to dispatch, then appraoched the two individuals, getting onto my PA 
System on my patrol vehicle and advised the individuals "Stop right
there".   Both individuals looked at me, then the individual on the bicycle fled the 
scene.

I activated my emergency overhead ligts, and audible siren while again announcing 
over the pa sytem "Police, stop the bicycle now".I pursed the individual into the 600 W. 
block of Oregon where the biclyclist crashed his bicyle then attempted to flee on foot. I 
exited my marked cruiser, advising "Stop, you're under arrest!" and began my foot 
pursuit in an attempt to catch the suspect. The suspect
fled about half a block east on the south portion of the sidewalk of Oregon when he 
then stopped and began turning around.  At this time the suspect was escorted to the 
ground by myself and placed into handcuffs (double locked and properly gapped).

Ptl. Caughey STPD #377 arrived on scene to assist me as I sat the suspect up onto 
his feet. I asked the suspect for his name, who stated he was "Taylor". I then asked 
Taylor if he needed to see EMS for any injuries, which Taylor denies any injuries. 
Taylor was advised of his Miranda rights, then placed into the back of my marked 
cruiser. A pat down was conducted from Ptl. Caughey, discovery of an empty was on 
his person.  

Myself and Ptl. Caughey searched the surrounding area for any evidence left behind, 
to which none was discovered. I then loaded the bicycle into the cruiser, along with 
Taylors property.

Upon arrival at station, I escorted Taylor into the squad room, releasing him from 
handcuffs and advising him of his Miranda rights. I then asked Taylor who the other 
two guys were, to which he responds "I don't know, I just met them today while I was 
riding home from Circle K".  I then asked Taylor what his drug of choice was to which 
he responds "Methamphetamine".  I asked Taylor what was inside the syringe and he 
responds "it was used for my mothers insulin but I shot up with it about  4 hours ago".

Taylor appeared visibly in pain from his shoulder, and i advised if he was okay. Taylor 
advised me "my shoulder popped out of socket a while ago and hasn't been right 
since".  

Taylor was observed walking with a limp.  Dispatch advised they would get EMS 
enroute when I observed these issues to check Taylor for possible injuries suffered 
during the foot  pursuit. Dispatch also advised Taylor had an active warrant out of 
Summit County.

I advised we would have charges on him as well. EMS arrived on scene and medically 
cleared Taylor. Taylor asked for a glass of water, and I obliged, grabbing him a glass of 
cold tap water, Upon completion of paperwork I loaded Taylors belongings into my 
cruiser, then placed Taylor into the back seat.  I then began transportation to MCJ, 
ensuring Taylor was placed in a safety belt before transporting.

Part-way through transporting Taylor, I received a call from DO Wheeler advising me 
MCJ won't   accept Taylor with the charges I had on him. I then asked DO Wheeler to 
check on the hit for the warrant when I returned back to station. Upon arrival to station, 
DO Wheeler gave me papework for Taylor's Warrant, advising we had to transport 
Taylor to MCJ to have him extradited to Summit County Jail.  I then began my second 
transportation to MCJ.

I placed Taylor in a safety belt as before, handcuffed Taylor ensuring they were 
Gapped and Double Locked then left for MCJ.  Upon arrival at MCJ I advised the jail of 
the warrant as well as our charges.

On 06-76-2020 at 23:50 hours, I was canductlng traffic enforcement in marked unit 
303. While patrolling northbound on S. Johnson road near Tennessee Avenue, I 
observed three subjects on bicycles without lights turn from S. Johnson Road onto W. 
California Avenue before beginning westbound. I then activated my overhead 
emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop, with all three subjects stopping in the 700 
block of W. Celifornia Avenue. I then exited my patrol car and informed the three of the 
reason for the stop. I also at this point noticed that a subject on one of the bicycles had 
what appeared to be a small flashlight taped to the handlebars, but it appeared to be 
dangling and not directed in one consistent direction so as to make it visible from the 
front and sides.

The subjects were identified as Noah McCammon, Matthew Thurman, and Brandon 
Fall.  Brandon  was on the bicycle with the makeshift light with neither Matthew nor 
Noah having any illumination on theirs.  Sgt.Kelm arrived to my location arround this 
time with me also relaying the three subject's information to dispatch. None of the 
three returned with any acitive warrants. In speaking further with the three l asked if 
any of  them had anything illegal oh them.  Brandon admitted to having marijuana and 
two knives on him and began reaching in his pdckets. I then asked Brandon if he 
would step off the bike and if I could pat him down. Brandon consented and stepped of 
the bicycle with me asking him where the marijuana was and if he had anything else 
illegal on him. Brandon then informed me that he had a glass pipe in his pocket as

INCIDENT NUMBER: 20-409056

ARREST: Haley Howard

Fourth Degree Felony Count of Theft from the elderly (ORC 2913.02)


On Friday September 11, 2020 at 1615 hours I spoke with Sally Howard and Ashley 
from Huntington Bank who stated that she is missing $2,961 dollars from her account 
which had drained all of her  savings and caused her account to be over drawn. 
Ashley, who is the manager at the bank, brought over a copy of the transactions 
showing various amounts from $5.00-$200.00 being sent to a Cash App account in the 
named Haley Howard. Adding up to $2,961.00 which is not the final amount but what 
was noticed today.

According to Sally, she approved $1,000 dollars to be sent to Haley to help one of her 
friends out, which was not added to the total sum of money taken. Then following the 
transaction, after Haley had the access to her grandmother's account she could then 
transfer more money to her cash app account. She also changed the phone number 
on the account from hera grandmother's number to her own phone number. Sally 
stated that Haley has stolen from her before and she thought she has learned her 
lesson from last time.

Sally is 80 years old making this a crime against a protected class and felony 4. A 
subpoena to cash app for the account information of Haley Howard to see if the money 
was sent to a bank account or is still in her cash app account.

Huntington Bank is filing a claim with thier investigative unit.


Patrolman Zachery Van Voorhis  Unit #512


On 10-01-2020, I met with Huntington Bank Branch Service Manager, Ashley Mutchler, 
at the Sebring Huntington Bank branch. Mutchler was able to provide me with a 
document showing activity on Sally Howards bank account where a phone number 
had been changed as well as where the email address xxx@starkstate.net had been 
added. Mutchler was unable to provide me with the number that had been changed on 
the account, seeing as it had been corrected.

After leaving Huntington Bank, I went to 625 W, Maryland Avenue to speak with Haley 
Howard about the incidents. Upon arriving at the residence, I met Haley at the front 
door. I advised Haley that the reason that i was there was to speak to her about the 
money that had been transferred from her grandmother's bank account to the Cash 
App bearing her (information) , her saying that she understood when I asked. Haley 
also sald that she was willing to speak to me regarding the matter.

Haley went on to say that her grandmother had agreed to transfer $1000.00 from her 
bank account to Haley's CashApp to help a family friend. Haley said that in order to do 
this, she linked her grandmothers bank account to her CashApp and then unlinked it 
immediately afterwards. Haley said that she then linked her Direct Express card to the 
CashApp, which is how she receives government benefits for her son, as well as 
received a monetary transfer from her mother using the app. Haley said that she was 
unsure how her grandmothers card stayed linked to the account and that she never 
relinked the accounts. Any money that was transferred afterwards Haley said she 
believed was not coming out of her grandmother's account. Haley then gave me a 
voluntary witness statement detailing what she had told me.

After Haley finished her witness statement, I asked Haley how much maney she 
receives monthly on her Direct Express card for her son. Haley said that she received 
about $141.00 a month in benefits. When I asked what other income she had, Haley 
said that she rents out a house that was owned by her deceased father, with all but 
approximately $100.00 of that money going to the mortgage on the house. I then 
expressed to Haley that I did not believe what she was telling me the truth and that I 
believe her funds would have ran out and not allowed her to continue drawing money 
out.

Haley then said that she didn't mean to steal money from her grandmother and initially 
only took out $100.00 with the intent of paying her back. Haley went on to say that she 
has a gambling problem, and "was really not trying to do her any wrong".  Haley then 
said that she and her grandmother had sat at the kitchen table and totaled up the 
amount of money Haley had taken from her account,with it  totaling up to around 
$2981.00. Haley said that she had not realized she had taken this much money until 
her grandmother came in the house one morning asking what she had done and 
saying that her debit card was not working. 

When I asked Haley if she had made any efforts to hide that she had been with 
drawing money from her grandmothers account she said that she had not. When I 
asked Haley how much money she was taking out at a time, she said she had taken 
increments of $25.00, $5.00 $75.00, and $100:00. When I asked if she would like to 
add what she had just disclosed to me in her witness statement she said that she 
would. I then gave the witness statement back to her, with her adding what she had 
told me. 

Before I left Haley agreed that she would keep the peace with her grandrnqther and 
that she no longer had access to her grandmothers banking information, I then cleared 
from the interview with nothing additional to report at this time. This case will be 
forwarded to Prosecutor Van Bricklin for consideration of charges.


On 10-07-2020 at 12:50 hours. I took Haley Howard into custody at her residence, 
located at 625 W. Maryland Avenue. Haley was charged with a fourth degree felony 
count of theft from the elderly (ORC 2913.02). It was also found that Howard had an 
active bench warrant for her arrest for failure to comply with the requirements of her 
probation.

Upon taking Howard into custody, she was secured in handcuffs, which were properly 
gapped and double locked. Haley was also searched incident to arrest. Due to 
Howard's grandmother being the only adult present at the time she was taken into 
custody, her mother, Kathy Howard, was called to the residence to take custody of , 
Howard's two children,

..... the custody transfer was approve by Mahoning County Child Protective Services


Once at the police station Howard was photographed, her DNA collected, and she was 
processed for transport to the Mahoning CauntyJail. 

Upon arriving to the jail, Howard was refused due to her heart rate being too high and 
her profusely sweating. On the way to Mercy Health St. Elizabeth's Hospital, Howard 
did admit to me that she took a pill capsule containing methamphetamine and 
Adderall. Howard said that she did this as I was knocking on the door to her residence. 

It should be noted that her son  xxxx  would have been present at this time.

Once at the hospital, Howard was treated in the Emergency Department by Dr. Donley, 
with her making statements in his presence to the effect of "I'm high was fuck". Howard 
also later made statements that she looked out the window, seen my patrol car, and 
decided to take the methamphetamine so as not to be caught with it. Once Howard 
was medically cleared from the hospital, she was transported to The Mahoning County 
jail. Nothing additional to report at this time.

CITED: Damion Kinkade,  age 20, 763 Waugh St. Alliance, Ohio 

Charge: SCO 331.09   Following Too Closely


On Wednesday October 7,2020 while pawolling Eastbound on West Courtney Road I 
observed a blue Pontiac at the stop sign at the west Courtney / N. 12th St. sign with its 
high beams on. As I turned onto West Courtney, the vehicle cleared the stop sign 
without dimming its headlights and the vehicle proceeded to approach my patrol 
vehicle at a rapid pace. The vehicle came so close to my cruiser that I was unable to 
see the headlights of the vehicle from my rear view mirror.

As we crossed the tracks, the vehicle still maintained a very close distance to my 
patrol vehicle, I pulled my patrol vehicle into the parking lot of TruCut, let the vehicle 
pass in a safe manner, then turned back onto the roadway and re-approached the 
vehicle from behind, I then activated my emergency overhead lights and audible siren 
as the vehicle approached the stop sign on West Courtney Rd. and N. Johnson Rd. 
The vehicle cleared the stop sign and stopped immediately on the side of the road 
safely.

I approached the vehicle and identified who I was, and the reason for the stop. On 
approach to the driver, I immediately was met with the smell of marijuana. I asked the 
driver when the last time he smoked was, and if there was any in the vehicle. I asked 
dispatch for assist, and Ptl. Caughey Smith Township Police #377 arrived on scene to 
assist me as there was two occupants.

I asked both driver and passenger to exit the vehicle, and both complied. Ptl. Caughey 
spoke with the two individuals as I performed a probable cause search. I discovered a 
small mason jar with a small amount of marijuana, and a baggie with marijuana 
residue in it as well. I confiscated both as evidence for destruction. I advised the driver, 
Damion Kinkade, he would be receiving a citation for following too closely (SCO

I advised Damion of his options on the citation, then both units cleared withgut further

Following Narative by Officer Marchionda #505


While conducting traffic enforcement on N Johnson Rd at W Ohio Ave, Patrolman 
Melendez and I observed a vehicle lacking rear license plate illumination heading east 
on W Ohio Ave. After turning east onto W Ohio Ave after the vehicle, we observed the 
vehicle briefly go left of center in the 600 block of W Ohio Ave. I activated my overhead 
emergency lights to initiate a traffic stop. The vehicle, a light blue Chrysler Town & 
Country (Ohio EVK4948) came to a complete stop an W Ohio Ave at N 18th St.

Upon establishing contact with the driver, later identified as Justin Franko, I identified 
myself and informed him of the reason for the stop. In addition to the driver, I observed 
a male passenger in the front seat and a male passenger in the back seat.  While I 
was interacting with the driver, Patrolman Melendez was interacting with the male 
passenger in the front seat. The driver was unable to produce his Ohio driver's license 
when requested and provided his identification information verbally.

The driver appeared to be acting abnormally, did not appear to be focused and would 
not answer my questions right away, prompting me to repeat myself multiple times.

The driver initially identified himself as XXXX  provided his actual date of birth and last 
four of his social security number. It turns out XXXX was actually his juvenile brother 
who was sitting in the back seat. We discovered XXXX was under the age af 18 during 
the course of our investigation and observed him smoking a cigarette during the traffic 
stop. The initial information provided by Justin was relayed to dispatch who would later 
advise nothing was coming back on the return.

Patrolman Melendez snapped his fingers above the car and pointed down towards the 
front cupholders. I observed an open 24oz can of Twisted Tea sitting in one of the cup 
hoiders. I asked Justin about the can and recieved a blank stare with no response. I 
instructed Justin to turn the I vehicle off and to remove the keys from the ignition. 
Justin promptly complied with my instructions.

At this time, I requested for additional cover units to respond to our location. Patrolman 
Melendez instructed the front seat passenger, later identified as Logan Franko, to get 
out of the vehicIe and secured him on the curb. Sergeant Kelm and Patrolman 
Peterman arrived on scene shortly thereafter to assist. XXXXwas instructed to get out 
of the vehicle and while doing so, continued to retain control of the cigarette and 
smoke it in front of us before finally putting it out after being instructed to do so. After 
Logan and XXXX were removed from the vehicle, I instructed Justin to exit the vehicle 
and patted him down for weapons (pocket knife secured).


All three occupants were instructed to sit an the curb. The right front and rear 
passenger doors were left open after Logan and XXXX were instructed to get out. 
Officers were able to observe several open 24oz cans of Twisted Tea in both the front 
and rear of the vehicle at this time. It was also during this time I observed a wallet in 
the driver side door pocket with an Ohio driver's license in the front clear pocket. Upon 
retrieving the wallet, I observed the picture on the license to match the driver and ran 
the license number through dispatch.

I was advised by dispatch Justin's driving status was failure to reinstate. Patrolman 
Melendez ran Logan's license through dispatch and was advised his driving status was 
suspended. During the course of our investigation, Logan gave off a strong odor of an 
alcoholic beverage while Justin gave off a mild odor.

A strong odor of an alcoholic beverage was also coming from XXXX.  An open 24oz 
can of Twisted Tea was observed sitting within close proximity of where XXXX was 
sitting in the van.

Due to all three occupants appearing impaired and the adults not having valid licenses, 
a tow truck  was summoned to the scene to remove the vehicle from the roadway. 
Logan was secured in the backseat of marked unit #302, XXXX in the backseat of 
#301 and Justin in the backseat of #304.

Following an administrative vehicle inventory, officers located several blue N2o 
cartridges. Justin was informed he was under arrest for endangering children, would 
receive a citation for open container and informed of his Miranda Rights. Justin stated 
he understood his rights and advised he was not willing to waive them to make a 
statement. Logan was informed he was under arrest for endangering children, would 
be issued citation for open container and informed of his Miranda Rights. Logan stated 
he understood his rights end advised he was willing to cooperate to go home.

Given Justin's behavior and condition in addition to the discovery of the N20 carttidges. 
I requested dispatch to see if a DRE (Drug Recognition Expert) was available for an 
evaluation.

Dispatch advised a DRF with the Ohio State Highway Patrol would be en route to the 
Sebring Police Department from the Lisbon Post.

XXXX was infomed he was under arrest for underage consumption of alcohol, 
underage possession/use of tobacco and would receive a citation for open container.  
Patrolman Melendez informed me he was going to speak with Logan since he 
appeared to be the most cooperative. After speaking with Logan, Patrolman Melender 
advised Logan waived Miranda and admitted all three males had been drinking for 
several hours. 

Springers arrived on scene and removed the vehicle from the roadway. All three 
occupants were subsequently transported from the scene to the Sebring Police 
Department for processing.

Upon arrival, Logan was placed in the lntoxilyzer room while XXXXX and Justin  were 
placed in the audio/video recorded squad room. XXXX and Justin were taken out of 
handcuffs at this time. Dispatch advised Trooper Myers was on the phone and wanted 
to speak with me.

After a brief conversation with Trooper Myers, I asked Justin if he was willing to 
perform field sobriety tests and submit to a chemical breath test. Justin promptly 
refused to perform SFSTs and provide a chemical breath test. I updated Trooper Myers 
and was advised since Justin refused SFSTs and a breath test, a DRE would not be 
needed and that my obsewations on scene would be enough to effect an QVI charge.

I provided Justin with an Ohio BMV 2255 and read the back of the form to him. I asked 
Justin if he understood what I read to him and if he was willing to submit to a chemical 
test. Justin stated he understood what was read to him and refused to submit to a 
chemical test, I promptly seized Justin's license and informed him he was now under 
an administrative license suspension and was prohibited from operating a motor 
vehicle going forward. Sergeant Kelm provided his signature for having witnessed the 
reading of the 2255 to Justin.

XXXX was allowed to phone his father, Kevin Franko, to pick him up from the station. I 
spoke to Kevin on the phone and explained the charges against XXXX. Kevin advised 
he would be on his way. I asked Justin If he wanted to make a phone call to get a ride 
and he advised he and XXXX were brothers and he would hopefully go with him.

Logan and Justin were photographed and fingerprinted. ,Justin provided his signature 
on the 2255 and was provided with his copy. Justin was Issued traffic citation #031925 
(QRC 4511.19A1A, 4511.19A2, 4510.21, 4511.33 and 4513.05).   Justin, Logan and 
XXXX were all provided with minor misdemeanor citations for ORC 4301.62 Open 
Container.

I provided Justin and Logan with recognizance of the accused forms and informed 
them they would be contacted by Mahoning County Court #3 at a later date to 
schedule their appearances in court.

Justin and Logan signed their recognizance forms and were given a copy. I informed 
XXXX his charges (ORC 1301.62,1301.69E1 and 2151.87) would be forwarded to the 
Mahoning County Justice Center in Youngstown and they would be in contact with his 
parents at a later date.

Logan was released to his fiancee and Justin was allowed to wait in ihe lobby.  XXXX 
was kept in the audio/video recorded squad room where he fell asleep. Kevin and 
Claudia Franko arrived at the station and were briefly informed of the charges against 
Justin and XXXX . Kevin and Claudia were informed JJC would be contacting them at 
a later date reference XXXX charges. Claudia signed a juvenile release to parents 
form. was provided a copy and XXXX released to her and Kevin's custody.

Any property seized from XXXX, Justin and Logan following their arrests were 
subsequently returned upon their release.

Charge: SCO 313.01 Obedience To Traffic Control Devices


On 09-30-2020 at 12:46 hours, I responded to a report of a two-car motor vehicle 
accident (MVA) at the intersection of N. Johnson Road and W. Ohio Avenue. Upon 
arrival, I observed a light blue Subaru Forester (Ohio Registration GDG 8540) sitting in 
the intersection. I also observed a Silver GMC Terrain (Ohio Registration HSN 2710) 
pulled over along the side of N. Johnson Road. Both vehicles had moderate front end 
damage, Ptl. Stanton was also already on scene and Sebring Fire/EMS toned out.

Upon making contact with both adult female occupants of the Forester, Catherine 
Smith, who was the driver and Mary Hoy, who was the front seat passenger, both 
denied injury. Because the damage to the Forester did not appear to be fully disabling, 
I instructed Smith to pull the vehicle over onto the shoulder of Johnson Road. Once 
Smith did so, I asked her what had happened.

Smith said that while traveling westbound on W. Ohio Avenue she did not stop for the 
four-way stop in time, resulting in her striking the other vehicle. I then provided with her 
vehicle registration, driver license, as well as an Erie Insurance card that proved that 
she had valid insurance on her vehicle. 

Sebring Fire/EMS arrived on scene at around this time and began assessing all 
involved patties, with all three refusing further medical intervention.

After speaking with Smith and Hoy, I made contact with the driver of the GMC Terrain, 
Lynne Alesi. In speaking with Alesi she said that she was traveling northbound on N. 
Johnson Road when she came to the intersection. Alesi said that she stopped, looked 
both ways for cross traffic, and then proceeded through the intersection before being 
struck by Smith's vehicle. Alesi as well was able to provide me with her driver license, 
vehicle registration, and an insurance card from Home-Owners Insurance Company 
proving that she had valid insurance on the vehicle. Alesi also denied injury.

I then returned to my patrol car and wrote Uniform Traffic Citation No. 031899 to 
Smith. I cited Smith for Obedience to traffic control devices (Sebring Codified 
Ordnance 313.01) Smith, then signed the citation, was given her copy, as well as 
advised to contact the court for information on how to either pay the citation or for 
information on how to contest it if she wished to do so.

Sebring tire then towed both vehicle to their lot. Nothing additional to report at this

CITED: Thomas Davis , Age 49, 105 W Harrison St, Alliance, OH

Charges:

ORC 4511.12  Obedience to Traffic Control Device

ORC4510.11 Driving Under Suspension (License Forfeiture)

ORC 4511. 19A1A  OVI (Officer Observations)

ORC 4511.19A1H  OVI (0.17<)


While sitting on N 15th St at W Ohio Ave facing north, I observed a dark green vehicle 
proceed through the functioning flashing light from the east without stopping. I 
activated my overhead emergency lights, audible siren and turned west onto W Ohio 
Ave., after the vehicle to intitiate a traffic stop.

The vehicle, a dark green Ford bearing Ohio registration HVK3170, pulled into a 
parking lot in front of 146 W Ohio Ave., and came to a complete stop.  Before I could 
update dispatch of my location and the vehicle I observed the driver begin to exit.

I immediately exited my vehicle and ordered the driver to stay in thevehicle.  The 
driver, an older white male, continued to step out of the vehicle, failed to follow lawful 
commands to remain in and get  back in the vehicle.  After the driver failed to obey 
Iawful commands and because I could not ihitially see his hands, I un-holstered my 
duty weapon and gave the drlver lawful commands to show me his hands.  The driver 
began to slur his speech and stated he did nothing wrong.  I requested dispatch to 
send additonal officers to my location and as I had one at gunpoint.

I ordered the driver to face his vehicle and place his hands on the roof.  While giving 
commands to the driver, I observed a second vehicle pull into an adjacent parking lot 
and sit there facing the stop. After several attempts the driver finally complied and I 
continued to hold him at gunpoint while addtional officers began to arrive on scene.  
Switching to less-than-lethal, I drew my X26P Taser and ordered the driver to face 
away from me and place his hands behind his head.  The driver was placed in 
handcuffs behind his back (gapped/double locked).

As soon as I got close to the driver. I could detect a very strong odor of an alcoholic 
beverage coming from his person. After the driver was safely cuffed, I asked how 
much he had to drink tonight and he answered two beers. I advised the driver the odor 
he was giving off smelled a lot more than two beers. Even with the driver handcuffed 
behind his back and me holding onto his left arm, I observed he was having mild 
dificulty standing straight up. The driver protested his detention and I advised the 
reason for the stop was because he blew the red flashing traffic light on E Ohio Ave at 
N 15th St. The driver argued he slowed down and came to a stop.

While standing with the driver next to his vehicle, other officers tended to the second 
vehicle parked in the adjacent lot. I asked the driver several times, if I removed the 
handcuffs, would he be willing to consent to field sobriety tests. This question went 
unanswered as the driver said nothing and stared straight ahead. I was able to get a 
look at the driver's eyes and observed them to be bloodshot and glassy.

At one point, the driver slurred he was scared and did not know what to do. I again 
asked him several more times, if I removed the handcuffs, wouid he be willing to 
submit to field sobriety tests.

The driver again failed to answer and was informed he was under arrest far suspicion 
of OVI.

The driver was searched incident to arrest for weapons, subsequently escorted to 
marked unit #304 and secured in the rear of the vehicle. Property found on the driver's 
person was placed on the roof of his vehicle. Sergeant Kelm and Patrolman Brindack 
assisted with the administrative vehicle inventory while I informed dispatch to summon 
a tow truck to the scene and to log one male in custody.

The driver of the second vehide was released from the scene after it was determined 
by other officers she was a friend of arrestee. After checking the driver's property 
found on his person and not being able to locate any kind of identification, I obtained 
the driver's name, date of birth and subsequently ran that Information through 
dispatch. While speaking to the driver, I observed his eyes were getting progressively 
more bloodshot and glassy.

Dispatch confirmed the information provided and the driver, Thomas Davis, was 
suspended.

Sargeant Kelm offered to remain on scene for the tow truck so I could transport Davis 
back to the station to begin processing. K-9 Patrolman Stanton, Patrolman Brindack 
and Peterman cleared the scene and I transported Davis to the Sebring Police 
Department. Upon arrival, Davis was escorted into the audio/video recorded squad 
room to begin the 20 minute 0bservation period  (00:07 to 00:29). Sergeant Kelm 
arrived at the station following the tow to stand as witness to the reading of the BMV 
2255.

Davis was taken out of handcuffs and provided a copy of the BMV 2255 to follow along 
as I read it to him. At the conclusion of reading the BMV 2255  I asked Davis if he 
understood what was read to him. Davis appeared confused at first and I had to briefly 
re-iterate what was read to him.

I asked Davis if he was willing to submit to to a chemical test(s) and Davis was unable 
to provide a definitive answer.  After going back and forth with Davis he intitally said no 
but sounded unsure.  I gave Davis a second chance to answer more confidently and 
he agreed to submit to a chemical test.

While I tended to the 2255 form Sgt Kelm prepared the intoxilizer 8000.   A check of 
Davis' driving record shows OVI convictions in 2016, 2011 and 2010, a dismissed OVI 
conviction in 2006.

I informed Davis the test results showed a BrAC of 0.209 and that he was over the 
legal limit of 0.08.  I informed Davis he was now under administrative license 
suspension and although he was already under suspension before he absolutely 
cannot operate a motor vehicle going forward.  Davis was given multiple opportunities 
to call for a ride and was successful in getting in touch with someone to pick him up.

As Patrolman Peterman was attempting to fingerprint Davis, he began to show signs of 
extreme discomfort and pain in his right wrist. I offered multiple times for EMS to come 
and check him out and he declined each time. Due to Davis' right wrist allegedly 
hurting and the prints not showing up on the scanner, it was decided to abandon 
fingerprinting.

Davis was able to provide a signature on the BMV 2255 and was provided a copy. 
Davis was also provided a copy of the Intoxilyzer 8000 test results as well as a copy of 
traffic citation #031924 (ORC 4511.19A1A, ORC 4511.19A1H, ORC 4510.11 and ORC 
4511.12). Davis was given his property back that was taken off his person earlier 
during the traffic stop.

Davis was provided a recognizance of the accused and informed due to COVID-19 
restrictions, I could not set a court date for him; the clerk of courts would be in contact 
with him at a later date to set his arraignment. Davis signed two copies of the 
recognizance of the accused without issue and was provided a copy. Davis was 
escorted into the lobby by other officers where his ride was waiting to pick him up.

Traffic
19000 Block of Courtney Road

CITED:  Leonard McAfee, age 53, 223 11th St Alliance, OH 

Charge: SCO: 333.03 Speed (55/35)


On 10-03-2020 at l8:03 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 304. 
While stationary in the loading bay parking lot at Famous Supply, located at 350 
Courtney Rd, I observed an eastbound pickup truck, gray in color, that was traveling 
towards me on Courtney Rd. This truck was traveling at a rate of speed that appeared 
to be substantially higher than that of the postad 35MPH limit. Upon activating my front 
facing radar antenna, I obtained a locked speed of 55MPH.

Once the truck passed by me, I activated my overhead emergency lights in order to 
initiate a traffic stop. Although I was behind the truck with my overhead emergency 
lights activated as well as audible siren, the truck continued on for approximately 1/2 
mile on Courtney Rd. before coming to a stop. 

Upon approaching the gray F- 150, bearing Ohio Registration GFM2153, I made 
contact with the driver. I introduced myself and asked for his driver license, vehicle 
registration, as well as proof of insurance, The driver was able to produce all three 
requested documents, with his Ohio Drive License identifying him as Leonard McAfee.

I then asked McAfee if he were aware of his speed. McAfee said that he was not and 
that his truck can be going much faster than he believes and him not even notice. 
When I asked McAfee why it took him so Iong to stop and if he seen me behind him 
with my lights activated, McAfee said that he did see me behind him but was not sure if 
I was trying to stop him or someone else.

I then returned to my patrol car and wrote Uniform Traffic Citation No. 029060 to 
McAfee. I cited McAfee for speed (Sebring Codified Ordnance 333.03) for going 
55MPH in a posted 35MPH zone, with a personal appearance required. McAfee then 
signed his citation, was given his copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court 
#3 for information on when to appear for the citation. I also at this point asked McAfee 
if he had consumed any alcohol or drugs prior to driving given that it took him an 
unusually long time to stop. McAfee said that he had not. 

It should,also be noted that McAfee's speech was not slurred, he did not appear 
disheveled, his eyes were clear, and I did not detect any signs of impairment. 

I then cleared from the stop with nothing additional to report at this time.

On 09-19-2020 at 20:34 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 
301. While patrolling eastbound in the alleyway between the 100 blocks of B. Ohio and 
Oregon Avenues, I observed a silver Pontiac Grand Am pull into the alleyway from the 
parking Iot of Schmid D's bar. The vehicle then stopped briefly in the aIIeyway before 
continuing on. 

I also at this point noticed that the vehicles license plate light was not functioning. 
Upon noticing this, I activated my overhead emergency lights, with the vehicle pulling 
into the driveway of 185 E. Oregon Avenue and stopping. I then approached the Silver 
Grand Am, which had Ohio temporary tag K593579 attached and made contact with 
the male driver, who I know to be Larry Gibbons-Rhodes. Makayla Tarbet was also in 
the front passenger seat.

I informed Larry of the reason for the stop as well as asked for his driver license, 
vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. Larry was unable to provide me with his 
dtiver license but I was positive on his identity based upon prior encounters. In 
speaking further with Larry, I asked him if there was any weapons or drugs in the 
vehicle that I needed to concern myself with. I noticed at this point that Larry broke eye 
contact and appeared very nervous.

Ptl. Stanton arrived at around this time with me requesting an open-air sniff be 
conducted using K9, Radar. Stanton then approached the driver side of the vehicle 
and made contact with Larry, asking him if he would consent to a search of the vehicle, 
Larry said that he would, with both he and Makayla then stepping out of the vehicle 
and joining be near the trunk. Ptl. Russell also arrived at this time. As I spoke with 
Larry, I noticed the strong odor of marijuana emanating from his person. When I

had stopped him, he placed it in his girlfriends' purse. Makayla then said that she had it 
on her person, having retrieved it after Larry did this. Larry said that he did not have 
any further contraband on him and he did consent to a search of his person with 
nothing further being located. Ptl. Stanton also found no further contraband during his

ORC 4511.19A1A  OVI (SFST)

ORC4511.19A1B  OVI (0.08<0.17)


Sunday, September 27,2020

While facing west in the parking lot of Perkins, 20040 Harrisburg-Westville Rd, I 
observed a red truck turn west onto Harrisburg-Westville Rd from Knox School Rd.  As 
the vehicle continued west, I observed the rear license plate was not illuminated. I 
pulled out of the parking lot onto Harrisburg-Westville Rd behind the vehicle and 
activated my overhead emergency lights to initiate a traffic stop, The vehicle, a red 
Chevrolet Silverado bearing Ohio registration PFM7434, came to a complete stop just 
west of the Oak Ridge Motel.

Upon establishing contact with the driver, identified as Amber Shoemaker, I identified 
myself and informed her of the reason for the stop. While speaking with Shoemaker, I 
could detect a very faint odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from within the vehicle. 
Using my flashlight, I illuminated the rear interior of the truck and observed a box of 
Busch Light and several closed and open cans scattered about. I asked Shoemaker if 
she had been drinking and if she had open containers in the vehicle. Shoemaker 
denied drinking but admitted there were several empty cans of beer in the back of the 
truck.

I instructed Shoemaker to exit the vehicle and stand in between her truck and my 
cruiser while I checked to see if the open cans were in fact empty or not. I pulled 
approximately 5-6 cans of Busch Light from the rear of the truck and observed very 
small amounts of liquid still in them. I approached Shoemaker, stood close to her and 
asked her again if she had been drinking.

This time, when she answered no, I was able to detect a more distinct odor of an 
alcoholic beverage on her breath. Shoemaker had a pet dog with her at the time of the 
stop and I asked her to secure the dog in the truck while I asked her more questions.

The more I interacted with Shoemaker, the more obvious signs of alcohol impairment 
began to show. Shoemaker's eyes started to become more bloodshot as time went on 
and the alcoholic beverage odor on her breath was becoming stronger. Shoemaker 
finally admitted to drinking a couple beers earlier at the tractor pull. I asked her to 
clarify how many beers is a couple beers and she answered five. I turned off my front 
facing emergency lights and asked Shoemaker if she would be willing to submit to a 
series of field sobriety exercises to determine whether or not she was impaired. 
Shoemaker agreed to perform the standardized field sobriety tests.

I asked Shoemaker if she had any pre-existing medical conditions, recent surgical 
operations and if she wore contacts / glasses. Shoemaker answered no to all three 
questions.

Shoemaker was sitting on the rear bumper of her truck before I began to administer 
SFSTs. As I instructed Shoemaker to stand up away from the truck, feet together with 
her hands at her sides, I did observe her mildly struggle with her balance. With a 
flashlight pointed down above her head, I placed a stimulus (extended handcuff key) 
approximately 12-15 inches in front of her face slightly above eye level.

I instructed Shoemaker to follow the stimulus with her eyes and her eyes only, keeping 
her head still, while standing as instructed earlier. While checkhg for equal pupil size, I 
did not observe resting nystagmus. WhiIe checking equal tracking, Shoemaker moved 
her head and was corrected. The following dues were observed in both the right eye 
and left eye during HGN (Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus): lack of smooth pursuit, distinct 
and sustained nystagmus at maximum deviation (4 seconds), onset of nystagmus prior 
to 45 degrees (onset prior to edge of shoulder). All three were conducted twice for 
verification.

I relocated Shoemaker to the front of her truck so she would have more room to 
perform the walk and turn. I instructed Shoemaker to stand on the very edge of the 
right shoulder line where the surface was most flat. Instructions for walk and turn were 
provided verbally, visually and acknowledged by Shoemaker. During walk and turn, the 
following clues were observed: Shoemaker did not walk heel-to-toe for some of the 
steps forward and back, Shoemaker raised her arms more than 6" at least two times 
for balance, shoemaker did not execute the turn as instructed.

Realizing I had forgot to administer VGN (Vertical Gaze Nystagmus) following HGN, I 
instructed Shoemaker to stand with her feet together, hands at her sides, follow the 
stimulus with her eyes only, and to keep her head still. I raised the stimulus above 
Shoemakers head and observed vertical gaze nystagmus in both eyes while I held the 
stimulus above her head for approximately five seconds. I brought the stimulus back 
down to eye level and held it above her head again for five seconds and again 
observed vertical gaze nystagmus in both eyes.

For one leg stand, instructions were provided verbally, visually and acknowledged by 
Shoemaker. The following clues were observed: Shoemaker put her left foot down 3 
times during the test. I informed Shoemaker based on her performance and my 
observations, I would be placing her under arrest for operating a vehicle while 
impaired. Since Shoemaker had her dog with her, I retrieved the truck's keys from her 
and allowed her to make a phone call for a friend to pick the dog up from the scene.

After successfully contacting a friend, Shoemaker emptied her pockets and placed the 
contents on the rear bumper of the truck. Shoemaker was placed in handcuffs behind 
her back (gapped/double locked) and secured in the backseat of marked unit #304. I 
notified dispatch to log the female driver in custody, send a cover unit and to have a 
tow truck summoned to the scene. Shoemaker's personal effects were collected and 
secured in the front seat of the vehicle.

Patrolman Peterman arrived an scene to conduct the administrative vehicle invenrory 
and to standby for the tow. Shoemaker's Friend arrived on scene shortly thereafter to 
take custody the dog. Shoemaker was transported from the scene to the Sebring 
Police Department for processing. 

After arriving at the station, Shoemaker was escorted into the audio/video recorded 
squad room and taken out of handcuffs.

K-9 Patrolman Stanton stood by while I read the BMV 2255 to Shoemaker. At the 
conclusion of reading the 2255 to Shoemaker, I asked if she understood what was 
read to her and if she was willing to submit to chemical test(s); Shoemaker stated yes. 
The twenty minute observation period was conducted from the time I brought her into 
the squad room (01:21 to 01:41) until the time I brought her to the Intoxilyzer 8000 
room. Shoemaker provided two breath samples and was brought back into the squad 
room. Shoemaker provided her signature on the BMV 2255 Form as did K-9 Patrolman 
Stanton for being the witness.

I obtained the printout from the Intoxilyzer 8000 and provided a copy to Shoemaker. I 
informed Shoemaker her BrAC of 0.097 exceeded the prohibited concentration of 
alcohol (0.08) and seized her driver's license. I informed Shoemaker she was now 
under administrative license suspension and could not operate a motor vehicle going 
forward. I informed Shoemaker she would have to obtain driving privileges from the 
court at a later date.

Shoemaker was provided a copy of the 2255, traffic citation #031922 (ORC 
4511.19A1A, ORC 4511.19A1B and ORC 4513.051, and a signed copy of the 
recognizance of the accused. I informed Shoemaker due to COVID-19 restrictions, the 
court would contact her regarding her mandatory appearance at a later date. I advised 
Shoemaker if she had any questions, to contact the clerk of courts at the number 
found at the bottom of the citation. I also advised Shoemaker to bring proof of 
insurance when she went to court. Shoemaker was given her personal effects back 
and subsequently escorted to the front lobby of the station to wait for her ride.

ARREST REPORT   September 12, 2020  @  1801hr
Case No.: 20009063 

CRIMINAL

ARREST: William Dawson , age 52, 205 E Pennsylvania Ave, Sebring, OH

Charges: 
ORC 2903.11 Felonious Assault F-2

ORC 2923.13 Having Weapons While Under Disability F-3

ORC 2919.25  Domestic Violence M-1

On Saturday, September 12, 2020, officers from the Sebring and Smith Township 
Police Departments responded to a report of domestic violence involving a firearm in 
the 200 block of E. Pennsylvania Ave.

Patrolman D.A. Marchionda #505
9.12.2020

Immediately after reviewing the call from dispatch, I retrieved my patrol rifle and 
initiated an expedited emergency response to 205 E Pennsylvania Ave. Upon arrival, I 
located the victim, Melissa Kastenhuber, outside the residence and escorted her to the 
rear of my patrol vehicle out of sight of the residence. Kastenhuber was visibly shaken, 
upset and crying. I notified dispatch to have EMS stage at their station as the victim 
had visible injuries to her face and right leg.  Ptl. Russell arrived on scene shortly 
thereafter and I requested mutual aid response from Smith Township due to the 
potential presence of a firearm.

Ptl. Russell and I took up cover behind marked unit #301 with our weapons trained on 
the house and used the PA speaker to make contact with the suspect, William 
Dawson. Kastenhuber advised us earlier he was still inside the house with a shotgun 
and that he had pointed it at her. As Smith Township Patrolman Caughey arrived on 
scene to assist, Dawson emerged from the east side of the house with his arms raised 
and hands visible. With weapons trained on Dawson, officers ordered him to walk back 
while keeping his arms raised and hands visible. With lethal cover from Ptl Caughey 
and Russel switched to less-lethal and trained my X26P Taser on Dawson while he 
was placed in handcuffs behind his back (gabped/double-locked).

A search of Dawson person produced two folding knives and a glass pipe with an 
unknown burnt residue. Dawson was placed in the rear of marked unit #301 and 
advised he was detained pending further investigation. Sebring Fire Medic-1 was given 
the green light to enter the scene at this time to attend to Kastenhuber who was sitting 
In the tailgate of marked unit #304. I acquired verbal consent from Kastenhuber to 
enter the residence, retrieve the shotgun as well any other weapons. Ptl. Russell 
remained in the ambulance with Kastenhuber to get her side of what happened prior to 
our arrival.

Ptl. Caughey remained on scene and assisted with scene control while I secured the 
glass pipe and knives securing them in marked unit #304.  Before entering the rear 
entrance of the residence, I observed a butterfly knife on the ground on the east side 
of the residence where Dawson had emerged. The butterfly knife was also secured in 
marked unit #304. As I approached the rear of the residence, I observed broken glass 
on the porch and shattered windows on the back door. I announced myself twice 
before entering the residence with my weapon drawn.

During the course of searching the first floor, I observed signs of a disturbance with 
more shattered glass on the kitchen floor and other items scattered about. As I entered 
the living room, I located a sawed-off single shot shotgun with a modified taped grip 
sitting on the couch next to a grey bag that appeared to contain additional shotgun 
shells. A check of the weapon found the gun to be loaded with a single live Winchester 
12ga 3" Magnum shell.

The weapon was subsequently cleared, the live round recovered and both items were 
secured in marked unit #304. I returned and subsequently secured the the bag 
containing additional shotgun shells in marked unit #304. Out of sight of the victim, I 
asked Ptl, Russell over the radio if Kastenhuber could describe the shotgun that was 
pointed at her. Ptl. Russell advised Kastenhuber described the shotgun as shorter than 
normal and black in color.

I requested dispatch to run Dawson's CCH for prior felony and/or domestic violence 
convictions.

Dispatch confirmed through LEADS Dawson was charged and convicted of improperly 
handling firearms in a motor vehicle. Ptl. Russell provided me the details of what 
Kastenhuber had told her.

According to Ptl. Russell, Kastenhuber had been assaulted in the bathroom and after 
managing to get out of the house, Dawson pointed the shotgun at her through the 
door.

After receiving this information, I opened the rear driver door of #301 where Dawson 
was placed and advised him of his Miranda Rights. 

Dawson acknowledged his Miranda Rights and advised he was not willing to waive 
them to make a statement. Dawson was informed he was under arrest for at least one 
charge of domestic violence and having weapons while under disability. Per 
department policy regarding felony charges, Sergeant Kelm and Chief Harris were 
notified immediately.

Kastenhuber signed an against medical advice waiver and refused to go to the hospital 
to get checked for her injuries. I provided Kastenhuber with a voluntary written 
statement packet and and asked her if she would be able to provide a written 
statement at this time. The packet was explained, to her and she agreed to provide a 
statement.  I advised Ptl, Caughey his assistance was no longer needed and he could 
clear.

According to Kastenhuber's written statement Dawson had berated her earlier this 
morning and throughout the day. During the early evening hours Kastenhuber took a 
shower and was subsequently pushed into the shower/tub and struck in the head with 
a "copper thing" (sic).

Kastenhuber stated after she pushed him out of the bathroom, she got dressed and 
went downstairs to get out of the house.  According to Kastenhuber Dawson shut the 
door and pointed a gun at her head when she attempted to re-enter the rear of the 
residence, breaking the back door windows.

Kastenhuber was provided a domestic violence complaint packet and signed the 
statement of complaint. Kastenhuber also provided her signature on the authorization 
for release of medical information earlier in the ambulance in the event she did go to 
the hodpital.  Kastenhuber signed the instructions for filing domestic violence and was 
provided a copy.  Photographs were taken of Kastenhuber's forehead where she was 
struck and of her right leg where dried blood spots were visible.  Additional 
photographs were also taken inside the bathroom where it was evident a disturbance 
had taken place.

Ptl. Russel transported Dawson to the station for processing while I transported the 
evidence.

Following our arrival at the station, Dawson was escorted into the video/audio 
recorded squad room  where he was kept in handcuffs due to the circumstances and 
was provided a face mask, I advised Dawson he could have the cuffs removed in the 
event he wanted to make a phone call or go to the restroom.  Dawson was read the 
charges against him: ORC 2903.11 Felonious Assault (F-2), ORC 2923.13 Having 
Weapons While Under Disability (F-3) ORC 2919.25 Domestic Violence  (M-1).

The handcuffs were removed during processing so Dawson could be photographed, 
thumb printed and DNA collected for the felony charges. According to his CCH, there 
was no DNA sample on file from his prior felony arrest and conviction. Dawson was 
informed due to the felonious assault charge his bond would have to be set by a judge 
and he would be transported to Mahoning County Justice Center in Youngstown.

Dawson was allowed to use the restroom and given the opportunity to place a phone 
call but did not because he did not know any numbers to call off hand.

Dawson's personal property was collected and gathered into a manila envelope. 
Among Dawson's property was $52 in cash (2-$20 US bills, 2-$5 US bills, 2 -$1 US 
bills). A more thorough and pat dawn of Dawson's person and clothing was conducted 
before being placed back in handcuffs behind his back (gapped/double-locked). All jail 
paperwork was completed and Ptl. Russell transported Dawson from the Sebring 
Police Department to the Mahoning County Justice Center in Youngstown.

All evidence was photographed, logged and secured in an evidence locker. The glass 
pipe with the unknown burnt residue will be sent to BCI for further processing and 
testing. The knives were all bagged together and the shotgun shells were secured 
separately from the shotgun. Due to the Marlin Model 200's barrel and grip being cut 
down, I am going to recommend the Bureau of Alcohol &  Tobacco, Firearms and 
Explosives be notified. 

Patrolman D.A. Marchionda #505
9.12.2020

On Saurday, September 12, 2020 myself and Ptl. Marchionda were dispatched to 205 
E. Pennsylvania Ave for a domestic violence complaint containing a loaded firearm 
Officers expedited expedited an emergency response to the scene.  Upon my arrival I 
observed Officer Marchionda escorting a female behind his marked patrol,car unit 
#304, Melissa Kastenhuber.  I immediately drawn my weapon from my holster and 
took cover behind my parked patrol car unit #301 as well as Officer Marchionda due to 
being advised the suspect was still in the residence with a loaded shot gun and was 
highly intoxicated. The weapons were pointed at the house. I then used the PA system 
from marked patrol car unit #301 to make contact with the suspect, William Dawson.

ARREST REPORT   September 12, 2020  @  1801hr
Case No.: 20009063 

CRIMINAL

ARREST: William Dawson , age 52, 205 E Pennsylvania Ave, Sebring, OH

Charges: 
ORC 2903.11 Felonious Assault F-2

ORC 2923.13 Having Weapons While Under Disability F-3

ORC 2919.25  Domestic Violence M-1

On Saturday, September 12, 2020, officers from the Sebring and Smith Township 
Police Departments responded to a report of domestic violence involving a firearm in 
the 200 block of E. Pennsylvania Ave.

Patrolman D.A. Marchionda #505
9.12.2020

Immediately after reviewing the call from dispatch, I retrieved my patrol rifle and 
initiated an expedited emergency response to 205 E Pennsylvania Ave. Upon arrival, I 
located the victim, Melissa Kastenhuber, outside the residence and escorted her to the 
rear of my patrol vehicle out of sight of the residence. Kastenhuber was visibly shaken, 
upset and crying. I notified dispatch to have EMS stage at their station as the victim 
had visible injuries to her face and right leg.  Ptl. Russell arrived on scene shortly 
thereafter and I requested mutual aid response from Smith Township due to the 
potential presence of a firearm.

Ptl. Russell and I took up cover behind marked unit #301 with our weapons trained on 
the house and used the PA speaker to make contact with the suspect, William 
Dawson. Kastenhuber advised us earlier he was still inside the house with a shotgun 
and that he had pointed it at her. As Smith Township Patrolman Caughey arrived on 
scene to assist, Dawson emerged from the east side of the house with his arms raised 
and hands visible. With weapons trained on Dawson, officers ordered him to walk back 
while keeping his arms raised and hands visible. With lethal cover from Ptl Caughey 
and Russel switched to less-lethal and trained my X26P Taser on Dawson while he 
was placed in handcuffs behind his back (gabped/double-locked).

A search of Dawson person produced two folding knives and a glass pipe with an 
unknown burnt residue. Dawson was placed in the rear of marked unit #301 and 
advised he was detained pending further investigation. Sebring Fire Medic-1 was given 
the green light to enter the scene at this time to attend to Kastenhuber who was sitting 
In the tailgate of marked unit #304. I acquired verbal consent from Kastenhuber to 
enter the residence, retrieve the shotgun as well any other weapons. Ptl. Russell 
remained in the ambulance with Kastenhuber to get her side of what happened prior to 
our arrival.

Ptl. Caughey remained on scene and assisted with scene control while I secured the 
glass pipe and knives securing them in marked unit #304.  Before entering the rear 
entrance of the residence, I observed a butterfly knife on the ground on the east side 
of the residence where Dawson had emerged. The butterfly knife was also secured in 
marked unit #304. As I approached the rear of the residence, I observed broken glass 
on the porch and shattered windows on the back door. I announced myself twice 
before entering the residence with my weapon drawn.

During the course of searching the first floor, I observed signs of a disturbance with 
more shattered glass on the kitchen floor and other items scattered about. As I entered 
the living room, I located a sawed-off single shot shotgun with a modified taped grip 
sitting on the couch next to a grey bag that appeared to contain additional shotgun 
shells. A check of the weapon found the gun to be loaded with a single live Winchester 
12ga 3" Magnum shell.

The weapon was subsequently cleared, the live round recovered and both items were 
secured in marked unit #304. I returned and subsequently secured the the bag 
containing additional shotgun shells in marked unit #304. Out of sight of the victim, I 
asked Ptl, Russell over the radio if Kastenhuber could describe the shotgun that was 
pointed at her. Ptl. Russell advised Kastenhuber described the shotgun as shorter than 
normal and black in color.

I requested dispatch to run Dawson's CCH for prior felony and/or domestic violence 
convictions.

Dispatch confirmed through LEADS Dawson was charged and convicted of improperly 
handling firearms in a motor vehicle. Ptl. Russell provided me the details of what 
Kastenhuber had told her.

According to Ptl. Russell, Kastenhuber had been assaulted in the bathroom and after 
managing to get out of the house, Dawson pointed the shotgun at her through the 
door.

After receiving this information, I opened the rear driver door of #301 where Dawson 
was placed and advised him of his Miranda Rights. 

Dawson acknowledged his Miranda Rights and advised he was not willing to waive 
them to make a statement. Dawson was informed he was under arrest for at least one 
charge of domestic violence and having weapons while under disability. Per 
department policy regarding felony charges, Sergeant Kelm and Chief Harris were 
notified immediately.

Kastenhuber signed an against medical advice waiver and refused to go to the hospital 
to get checked for her injuries. I provided Kastenhuber with a voluntary written 
statement packet and and asked her if she would be able to provide a written 
statement at this time. The packet was explained, to her and she agreed to provide a 
statement.  I advised Ptl, Caughey his assistance was no longer needed and he could 
clear.

According to Kastenhuber's written statement Dawson had berated her earlier this 
morning and throughout the day. During the early evening hours Kastenhuber took a 
shower and was subsequently pushed into the shower/tub and struck in the head with 
a "copper thing" (sic).

Kastenhuber stated after she pushed him out of the bathroom, she got dressed and 
went downstairs to get out of the house.  According to Kastenhuber Dawson shut the 
door and pointed a gun at her head when she attempted to re-enter the rear of the 
residence, breaking the back door windows.

Kastenhuber was provided a domestic violence complaint packet and signed the 
statement of complaint. Kastenhuber also provided her signature on the authorization 
for release of medical information earlier in the ambulance in the event she did go to 
the hodpital.  Kastenhuber signed the instructions for filing domestic violence and was 
provided a copy.  Photographs were taken of Kastenhuber's forehead where she was 
struck and of her right leg where dried blood spots were visible.  Additional 
photographs were also taken inside the bathroom where it was evident a disturbance 
had taken place.

Ptl. Russel transported Dawson to the station for processing while I transported the 
evidence.

Following our arrival at the station, Dawson was escorted into the video/audio 
recorded squad room  where he was kept in handcuffs due to the circumstances and 
was provided a face mask, I advised Dawson he could have the cuffs removed in the 
event he wanted to make a phone call or go to the restroom.  Dawson was read the 
charges against him: ORC 2903.11 Felonious Assault (F-2), ORC 2923.13 Having 
Weapons While Under Disability (F-3) ORC 2919.25 Domestic Violence  (M-1).

The handcuffs were removed during processing so Dawson could be photographed, 
thumb printed and DNA collected for the felony charges. According to his CCH, there 
was no DNA sample on file from his prior felony arrest and conviction. Dawson was 
informed due to the felonious assault charge his bond would have to be set by a judge 
and he would be transported to Mahoning County Justice Center in Youngstown.

Dawson was allowed to use the restroom and given the opportunity to place a phone 
call but did not because he did not know any numbers to call off hand.

Dawson's personal property was collected and gathered into a manila envelope. 
Among Dawson's property was $52 in cash (2-$20 US bills, 2-$5 US bills, 2 -$1 US 
bills). A more thorough and pat dawn of Dawson's person and clothing was conducted 
before being placed back in handcuffs behind his back (gapped/double-locked). All jail 
paperwork was completed and Ptl. Russell transported Dawson from the Sebring 
Police Department to the Mahoning County Justice Center in Youngstown.

All evidence was photographed, logged and secured in an evidence locker. The glass 
pipe with the unknown burnt residue will be sent to BCI for further processing and 
testing. The knives were all bagged together and the shotgun shells were secured 
separately from the shotgun. Due to the Marlin Model 200's barrel and grip being cut 
down, I am going to recommend the Bureau of Alcohol &  Tobacco, Firearms and 
Explosives be notified. 

Patrolman D.A. Marchionda #505

On Saurday, September 12, 2020 myself and Ptl. Marchionda were dispatched to 205 
E. Pennsylvania Ave for a domestic violence complaint containing a loaded firearm 
Officers expedited expedited an emergency response to the scene.  Upon my arrival I 
observed Officer Marchionda escorting a female behind his marked patrol,car unit

took cover behind my parked patrol car unit #301 as well as Officer Marchionda due to 
being advised the suspect was still in the residence with a loaded shot gun and was 
highly intoxicated. The weapons were pointed at the house. I then used the PA system

ARREST REPORT   August 31, 2020
Case No,: 20008206 

CRIMINAL  @  135 E Florida Ave, Sebring, OH

CITED: Roxanna Fotheringham , Age 47, 135 E Florida Ave, Sebring, OH

Charge: SCO 505,01(b)  Dogs Running at Large - Female


Upon arrival, I was unable to locate any dogs running at large in the 100 block of E 
Georiga Ave, E Florida Ave, and the alley in between both streets. Some time later, I 
was informed four dogs were seen running at large and all four had been caught. It 
was learned two of the dogs may belong to 135 E Florida Ave. I arrived at 135 E 
Florida Ave, knocked on the door and announced myself., It appeared no one was 
home but it sounded like there were dogs inside the residence; I also observed the 
front window of the residence to be damaged and the exterior window screen was 
ripped facing outwards.

An adult female, identified as Amber Horning, came walking down E Flarida Ave from 
S 15th St with two dogs on a leash. Horning stated she thinks the dogs belong to 135 
E Florida,Ave but was not sure because they did not have tags. Horning also advised 
two other dogs were caught by a juvenile male and taken back to a house on S 15th St 
at W Florida Ave. Since the two dogs Horning had control of did not have tags, I 
informed dispatch to contact the Mahoning County Dog Warden to come and collect 
the dogs from Horning.

After speaking with Horning, I arrived at 368 S 15th St and spoke with the female 
resident there.  While speaking to her, I observed a shattered window on the south 
side of the residence and was informed their dogs broke through to get at the other 
dogs. I informed the resident at 308 S 15th St she'would not receive a letter or citation 
since the dogs managed to break through a closed window.

After clearing the area and returning to station, I was informed the two dogs without 
tags did in fact belong to 135 E Florida Ave and the owner, Roxanna Fotheringham, 
was on her way home. When I arrived at 135 E Florida Ave, I was greeted by Jessica 
Fotheringham who stated the dogs got out through the front window.  I asked Jessica 
why the dogs did not have tags and she replied they did.  They are in the house but 
have not been put on yet.

Roxanna arrived home and I explained she would be receiving a minor misdemeanor 
citiation for the dogs rurlning at large.  Roxanna stated both dogs are females and are 
in heat that is why they got out and must have broke through the front window to do 
so. Due to Roxanna recently undergoing surgery, I allowed her to go into her residence 
and gave the minor misdemeanor citation to Jessica. I informed both Roxanna and 
Jessica the charge and due to COVID-79 restrictions, the court would call at a later 
date to schedule an appearance. Roxanna Fotheringham was charged with SCO 
505.01(b) Dogs Running at Large.

On arrival, I and Ptl Reed was met with the caller,Pamela Fitzpatrick, who stated to 
both units that, her son Jerry Fitzpatrick was upstairs in the residence and was 
"starting to turn blue".  Officers responded with an AED ready and available to use. 
Approaching the father of Jerry I observed a white male who was not responding to 
any of my commands and whose face was blue, with very short and exasperated 
breaths that appeared to be a sign of near death.   0fficers began placing the AED 
pads in the proper locations on Jerrys chest as I attempted to feel for a radial pulse. 
When I  determined there was no pulse present, I then powered the AED on.  l advised 
Pt. Reed to stay clear of Jerry until the AED has finished analyzing Jerrys heart beat, 
and stattes to start CPR. Ptl Reed administered Jerry with Narcan. one 8mg via nasal 
cavity. I advised dispatch to have Sebring EMS to  "Step it up" as this being a life 
threatening situation.

The AED states to start CPR and Ptl. Reed began chest compressions.  Approximately 
1 minute later I reassessed Jerrys' pulse and was able to get a distal pulse on Jerry 
that was weak but present.  Jerry's respirations were becoming slightly more organized 
but was still making a "snoring" noise.

Ptl Reed then grabbed a bag valve mask and began giving Jerry rescue breaths in an 
attempt to provide quality oxygen to Jerry.

Upon Sebring EMS's arrival on scene I asked the famile members to step into another 
room as medics accessed Jerry's condition.  Jerry was beginning to have a flushed 
appearance returned to his face and his pulse was strong and regular.  Medics placed 
a monitor device onto Jerry to ascertain his condition.

As Ptl Reed spoke with family members In the other room and EMS looked over Jerry, 
I observed in plain view a glass device used ta smoke drug paraphernalia "bong", 
along with a marijuana "pipe" and several drug instruments. I collected these as 
evidence to log. Medics administered a second nasal 2mg dose to Jerry at this time. 
Sebring EMS personnel loaded Jerry orlto a patient carrying device and I assisted in  
moving Jerry downstairs where additional medical personnel waited to  assist to the 
ambulance.  I returned upstairs and as both units were cleaning up the scene and 
investigating the scene for further evidence an open side door was noted with a small 
box, and a UV Light hanging above the box.

Inside said box were several plant of a green leafy substance and several drug 
instraments and paraphernalia surrounding the area.  I called in supervisor Sgt. Kelm 
#503 to the scene to request guidance on what to do with the evidence.  It was 
determined all evidence would be collected.  Upon further investigation several locked 
boxes were discovered along with shotgun shells. a shotgun, a bolt action rifle .  Sgt. 
Kelm determined all weapons would be collected for safekeeping along with a 
paraphernalia for evidence.  Jerrys daughter was at the time living in the same 
residence where the paraphernalia was as well.

Evidence and weapons were stowed in marked cruiser #304 and brought back to 
station for logging.

On 08-28-2020 at 23:47 hours Units responding to a medical emergency a W. Ohio 
Avenue. The initial 911 caller reported that a 40-year-old male subject was tuning blue, 
making noises, and foaming at the mouth. Upon arriving to the address, Ptl. Peterman 
and I made contact with a Pam Fitzpatrick in the front yard of the house. Pam advised 
that her son was In an upstairs bedroom and was not breathing. Upon hearing this I 
retrieved the A.E.D., Narcan, and ambu bag from the back of car 304.

Once inside the bedroom, we found Jerry Fitzpatrick Jr. laying on his back on the floor 
of the room. Jerry was blue in color and did not appear to be breathing. His father, 
Jerry Fitzpatrick, was slttlng on the bed in the room and said that he had attempted 
CFR prior to our arrival. I also at this' point asked both Jerry Sr and Pam if their son 
had a history of drug abuse. Pam did advise that Jerry had I been a drug user in the 
past but was supposed to have stopped using. At this point I deployed the department 
Issued Narcan, using one 4mg unit in each nostril while Ptl Peterman placed the 
A.E,,D. pads on Jerry's chest. It was also noted by Ptl. Peterman at this point that he 
could not locate a pulse using Jerry's left wrist. The A.E.D. also advised that m shock 
was needed. I then began CPR using the department issued ambu bag.

Several seconds later Jerry began to breath, with Ptl. Peterrnan also locating a pulse. 
Jerry's breathing was very labored with him stoppingseveral times and me having to 
again use the ambu bagi. Sebring Fire Department then arrived with paramedic Wayne 
Bailey taking over. I then went into another bedroom where I spoke with Pam and Jerry 
Sr as well as Jerry jr's daughter.   In speaking with,Pam and Jerry Sr.,I was advised 
that they had received a phone call from Jerry's wife, Ellen Fitzpatrick with her saying 
that something is wrong with Jerry and that she was leaving for work. Pam said that 
she and her husband then drove to the residence from theirs in  Leetonia with them 
finding Jerry laying on the floor of the bedroom struggling to breath.

Jerry Jr. was then taken to Alliance Community Hospital for treatment. A check of the 
area where Jerry had been laying located numerous instruments of drug abuse 
including a bong and a bag containing marijuana pipes.  A small gun safe was located.  
Inside the closet of the bedroom was a marijuana grow with three growing plants, a 
grow light, harvested marijuana as well as harvested plants that were sitting in a 
cardboard box. Upon locating these items I requested Sgt. Kelm to respond to our 
location.  Also, in the closet was an AR-15 style seml-automatic 12-gauge shotgun and 
a bolt-action .22 rifle. The drug related items were seized and the firearms taken for 
safe keeping.

In speaking with she made statements about her dad having used what she called 
"bad drugs" that made him sleepy while they were in Tennessee last month. I then 
made contact with Nicole Ware, of Mahoning County Child protective services and 
made her aware of the situation.

Units then cleared from the call with nothing additional to report at this time. A copy of 
thls report will be forwarded to the prosecutor for review and possible charges.

On 08-30-2020 at approximately 6:25 hours, Ellen Fitzpatrick arrived on station to 
discuss the apparent overdose that occurred at her house on 08-28-2020. Upon 
making contact with Ellen, I introduced myself by name and position before escorting 
her to the squad room. Once in the squad room I again explained to Ellen why I 
wanted to speak to her as well as made in clear to her that she was not under arrest. I 
did however read Ellen her Miranda rights, with her advising that she understood them 
and was still wilting to speak to me regarding the incident.



Ptl. Reed #507



When I asked Ellen what had happened she said that she and her husband had been 
smoking marijuana at their house at around 10:30pm.   Ellen said that afterwards her 
husband began to make snoring noises while laying on the edge of the bed. Ellen said 
that she then moved him to the floor, checked his breathing, and at one point 
attempted to perform CPR  but stopped because he was breathing. Ellen said she then 
called Jerry's parents, Jerry Sr, and Pam Fitzpatrick, before she rolled him over on his 
side and left for work. When I asked what Jerry was possibly overdosing on Ellen said 
that they believe  that they had got marijuana that had been laced with Fetanyl.  Ellen 
did not provide intormation on where the marijuana came from.

Ellen did acknowledge that she left their six-year old daughter with Jerry while he was 
suffering from a apparent overdose with her saying that she was very nervous during 
the ordeal.  Ellen provided me with a voluntary witness statement before departing 
from the police station.  Nothing additional to report at this time.


Ptl Reed  #507


On Sunday, September 6,2020, Patrolmen Marchionda and Van Voorhis apprehended 
Ellen and Jerry Fitzpatrick at their residence, 606 W Ohio Ave. Both parties were 
placed in handcuffs behind their back (Gapped/double locked) and Ellen was placed in 
marked unit #301 while Jerry was placed in marked unit #304. I read Jerry his Miranda 
Rights on scene and he acknowledged his rights. Both parties were transported from 
the scene to the Sebring Police Department for processing.

Upon arrival, Jerry and Ellen were separated with Jerry being placed in the audio/video 
recorded squad room and Ellen being placed in the intoxilyzer room.  Both parties 
were taken out of handcuffs.  Their warrants were read to them and served.  I read 
Ellen her Miranda Rights which she acknowledged and invoked her rights. Ellen 
provided the combinations to both safes secured by Patrolmen Reed and Peterman 
the night of the initial incident and signed a permission to search waiver. Jerry provided 
the security diagram code to the phone also secured the night of the initial incident and

CRIMINAL -  Endangering Children

ARREST: 34y/o Nicole Cutlip , 305 E Maryland Ave, Sebring, OH 

Charge: ORC 2919.22 Endangering Children (M-1) / Bond $1,250


While leaving Sebring Manor at 216 W Ohio Ave. I observed Noah Cutlip (10-11 YOA) 
running  north across W Ohio Ave. Noah, who is known by officers of the Sebring 
Police Department to be autistic, has walked and ran off from both his grandmother 
and mother at least a dozen times in the last 2-3 weeks. I activated my overhead 
emergency lights and parked my cruiser on N 16th St ,at W. Ohio Ave and motioned 
for Noah to walk to me when it was safe to do so. As Noah approached, I observed 
Noah's grandmother, Alice Rinehart, in her vehicle and motioned for her to proceed 
through the intersection and turn around.

I asked Noah why he was crossing the street in his socks and he replied "l'm going to 
Angies" [sic] (Angela Pierce of E Indiana Ave). I informed Noah he cannot keep 
walking/ running off from his mother, grandmother and going to Angie's house was not 
allowed. At this time, Alice Rinehart pulled up behind my cruiser and I motioned for her 
to exit and approach.

As Alice began to berate and yell at Noah, I provided her with a stern warning she, as 
well as Noah's mother Nicole Cutlip will face Endangered Children charges because 
their lack of duty of care provides a risk to Noah's safety. Alice began to complain and 
asked what is she supposed to do since Noah just wanders off whenever he feels like 
it. I informed Alice that she and Nicole are adults and are responsible for Noah when 
he is in their custody. I reiterated they need to take extra care and precautions 
because of Noah's autism. Alice stated Nicole is off from work today and has been 
unreachable by phone.

A check of records dating back to August 7, 2020 shows this has been an ongoing 
problem. Refer to report #20008032, #20008034, CAD #20-0000005760, report 
#20008036, report #20008043,CAD #20-0000005767,and report #20008086 for 
additional information on incidents similar to today. As a result of this departments 
constant response to locate and recover Noah, and after consulting with the 
prosecutor's office, I will be filing charges against Alice Rinehart and Nicole Cutlip.

State Complaints for ORC 2919.22 Endangering Children (M-1) will be drafted and 
submitted to Mahoning County Court #3. A call was placed to Mahoning County 
Children Service's and Candice Beaumont, a caseworker currently working an open 
case on Noah, was apprised of the situation.

On 8-14-2020 at 04:35 hours I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 301.  
While patrolling northbound in the 200 block of N. 17th St. I observed a silver 
Chevrolet Impala approach the intersection and come to a complete stop before 
activating it's turn signal.

Upon noticing this I activated my overhead emergency lights and intitiated a traffic

shaking hands.

Ptl. Caughey of Smith Township Police department arrived shortly after with me 
requesting Mr. Dupal, his female passenger, as well as Mr Mills out of the vehicle.  Mr. 
Dupal consented to a search of his person with me explicitly asking for and receiving 
permissing to go into his pockets.  No contraband was located but I did remove a black 
folding knife that I advised Dupal I would be holding onto for the duration of our 
encounter due to him beginning to appear to become agitated.  I then advised Dupal 
that he could have a seat in my car and that I would be calling a tow truck to tow the 
vehicle, see as no driving privilages were listed for him in LEADS and he admitted that 
he was not going to work but instead taking Mr. Mills to a drug rehab.  In speaking with 
the female passenger she identified herself as Kristy Manley and said that she was the 
vehicles registered owner.  I advised her that I would be towing the vehicle a that she 
would be receiving a citation for wrongful entrustment.

I then began an administrative inventory of the vehicle, starting first with the driver 
side. Upon beginring the inventory of the vehicle, I noticed a cut straw inside the door 
compartment. I next noticed a small plastic baggie containing a light-colored crystalline 
substance, which based upon my training and experience appeared to be crystal meth. 
Upon noticing this I returned to my patrol car to speak to Mr. Dupal, with him denying 
knowledge of the items. Dupal became very agitated and was secured in handcuffs, 
which were properly spaced and double locked at this point. As I went further with the 
administrative inventory, I located a digital scale near the front passenger seat. Ptl. 
Caughery also located two round white pills inside the handbag belonging to Manley. 
The pills were stamped RP on one side and 89 on the other and were determined to 
be Buprenorphine Hydrochloride, a schedule III -controlled substance. 

Manley advised that she did have a prescription for the medications but was unable to 
produce one while at the scene. She was advised that the pills would be confiscated 
because of this and that she would need to come to the police department with a valid 
prescription to have them returned. In going further with the inventory no other 
contraband was located.

Sebring Tire then arrived on scene and towed the vehicle to their impound lot. A court 
hold was placed on the vehicle due to Manley being citated for wrongful entrustment. 
Once Sebring Tire cleared from the scene, I provided Dupal with Uniform Traffic 
Citation No. 031895. Dupal was cited for Failing to signal his turn prior to 100 feet 
(ORC: 4511.39) as well as driving under suspension (ORC 4510.11). Dupal then 
signed the citation, was given his copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court 
#3 for further information on the case. The suspected meth, Suboxone, cut straw, 
digital scale, and a butane torch were confiscated. Paperwork for a summons will be 
drafted and sent to the court for a fourth-degree misdemeanor charge of possession of 
drug paraphernalia against Dupal for the cut straw.

Manley was given Uniform Traffic Citation No, 031896 for wrongful entrustment 
(SCO:335.05). Manley was advised as well to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for 
further information on the case. Nothing additional to report at this time.

On 05-31-2020, I was in the parking lot of the police station when I heared male voices 
yelling the area of the 100 block of East Oregon Avenue. I also could see several male 
subjects walking down the road front of The Rec as I was getting in my patrol car. 
Upon arriving to the area, arriving with Ptl. Russell, I found a subject who I know to be

Avenue. As I approached in my patrol car, the black male lmmediately placed his 
hands in the air and began screaming "hands up don't shoot" as well as making anti-
law enforcement statements regarding the death of George Floyd.

When I asked what was going on, Sloat said that Spencer Hunt and Josh McCullough 
had just been at his house trying to fight him because he asked if they had burglarized 
his house earlier in the day. Sloat also said that Spencer threw a windshield ice 
scraper in his direction. 

The scraper was laying on the sidewalk and was later collected as evidence. Sloat 
said that McCollough and Hunt were in a  green Pontiac Grand Prix that was being 
driven by an unknown blonde-haired female and that upon seeing the headlights from 
our patrol cars that they got in the car and left.  

Upon asking the other subject his name he continued to state "I dont have to talk to 
you" and did not give any meaningful information.

Sloats girl friend, Destiny Chapman came out of the house and reiterated what Sloat 
had said.  Chapman said that the green Grand Prix initially parked at the corner of 
North 14th St and East Oregon Avenue and that Spencer Hunter and Josh McCullough 
came running toward her house stating "let's work".  Chapman said that they remained 
in the curb lawn during this time.  Both Chapman and Sloat gave witness statements

the family with KFC chicken. When he walked inside he saw a clear baggie of a white 
rocky substance on his counter with a lighter next to it. Sara got up to grab it when he 
walked in to attempt to grab it. Donald then yelled at her for having what he believed to 
be drugs in his home while their children were around. He then asked her to leave the 
home immediately.

At the moment he asked her to leave , XXXXXX, reportedly Sara's new boyfriend, 
pulled into Donald's driveway.  Donald went out to ask why he was there and as he 
walked out Sara grabbed a large decorative spoon hanging from the wall and struck

to call the Sebring Police Department to file a report.  

xxxxx, the eldest of the children, did tell me he is afraid of his mother returning and 
hurting him. He said she has caused him a bloody nose in the past, confirmed by 
Donald.

Donald also filled out a domestic violence statement and stated that he is afraid she 
will return today and things will escalate.  He took the kids to his mothers house for the 
rest of the day but they will all be back in the house tonight.  The packet was filled out

Case No.: 20008010 

CRIMINAL - THEFT
Stark County jail, 4500 Atlantic Blvd NE, Canton OH


ARREST: Brandon Court ,Age 29
545 W Ohio Ave, Sebring, OH

Charge:  ORC 2913.02  Theft (M1)  /  Bond $1,250


Upon arrival at 525 W Ohio Ave. I established contact with the complainant, Leigh 
Brown. Brown stated earlier this morning while taking trash out to her cans behind her 
residence, she discovered two white trash bags in her cans not belonging to her. 
Brown stated she received a message on Facebook Messenger from a neighbor,  at 
8:44 AM. In the message, It was conveyed by a neighbor observed Brandon Court 
carrying trash bags away from his residence and down the alley towards Brown's 
residence.  Brown "screen shot" the message and emailed it to my department email.

While walking down to 545 W Ohio Ave where I knew Court resided I requested 
dispatch to perform a warrant check. Dispatch advised had an active warrant through 
Stark County Sheriffs Office. Court came to the door after I knocked and when he 
opened it, I stated "there are some trash bags down the street at one of your neighbors 
' that don't belong to her".  Before I could finish speaking Court, admitted the bags 
belonged to him and that he had put them in the trash cans. I asked Court if I could 
step inside and he granted me access inside of his residence.

Court stated he knew he was probably getting arrested because he already knew 
about the warrant. I informed Court he did in fact have a warrant through Stark County 
and I would be taking him into custody. I allowed Court to perform some housekeeping 
tasks and smoke a cigarette due to his calm demeanor and cooperation. I read Court 
his Miranda Rights in regards to the theft of services and he acknowledged them as 
well as waiving them to answer any further questions I had.

Court was placed in handcuffs behind his back (gapped/double locked), patted down 
for weapons, and escorted to marked unit #301.

Court stated due to a previous surgery on his back, being cuffed from behind and 
having to sit down causes him great discomfort and pain. I granted Court's request to 
be cuffed In the front (gapped/double locked) and placed him in the rear of marked unit 
#301. I informed dispatch I had Court in custody pending confirmation from Stark 
County Sheriffs Office and to log Miranda.

After securing Court in the cruiser, I provided Brown with a statement packet and 
asked her to write down what happened and if she wanted to file theft charges. Brown 
provided a written statement and verbally conveyed to me she wanted to pursue 
charges against Court. I established contact with Brown's neighbor.  l informed of the 
situation and asked if she saw anything.  Stated she had video evidence of Court 
carrying trash bags away from his house and showed me one of the clips from earlier 
this morning from her home security system. .....emailed 8 video clips to my 
department email after I viewed one of them showing Court walking away from his 
residence carrying two white trash bags. I saw similar white trash bags in Court's 
residence earlier. 

I cleared from the scene and transported Court to the station to retrieve a face mask 
for him and provided dispatch with the key to his residence.
 
Dispatch subsequently advised Stark County would be sending a Sheriff's Deputy to 
meet me at Duke and Duchess on US HWY 62. I gave the face mask to Court for him 
to put on and transported him to meet with Stark County.

While Court was In the backseat of the cruiser, he voluntarily stated he has been trying 
to clean the house up and because he does not have trash service, he did not think it 
would be a big deal to put his trash in someone else's cans, especially because there 
was room. Right before the exchange of custody with Stark County, I informed Court a 
summons would be drafted for theft and delivered to him at a later date. After the 
Sheriffs Deputy from Stark County took custody of Court, I informed him I would be 
faxing a summons to the Sheriffs Office at a later time.

Once back at the station and reviewing evidence ,  a state complaint for ORC 2913.02  
Theft (M1) will be drafted and submitted to Mahoning County Court #3.

both parties that this a private property accident and this will be up to the insurance 
companies for restitution. No medical services were asked for at this time for the vehicle 
operators.

Ptl. Brindack had called Sebring Squad under the advisement of Sgt. Kelm who had 
arrived on scene to check the health of Zachary Moore. Zachary was still behaving 
abnormally and continuously sweating.  Zachary was at first admitting to not sleeping 
for three days and then admitted to the Sebring Squad he just drank a monster. Ptl. 
Brindack further questioned Zachary and Zachary admitted to using Methamphetamine 
approximately four days ago. I immediately "Terry Frisked" Zachary  and found a red 
tube and metal container in his pockets. I also found a crumpled 20$ bill with Chinese 
characters on it. I instructed Zachary to go with the paramedics for clearance. At this 
time I asked the driver of the red vehicle (which Zachary is the passenger to) if I may 
search his vehicle. He consented and I advised Dispatch of the consent search. 
Nothing was found at this time.

Sebring Squad cleared Zachary Moore and I cited Zachary for Drug Paraphernalia 
(minor-misdemeanor) and advised him to contact the Mahoning County Court #3 for a 
court date.

Zachary was still very jittery and acting abnormal at this time and when clearing the 
scene stopped me to give me more money with Chinese characters on them. I advised 
Zachary this is not legit currency and he advised me to take them and destroy them. 
Zachary admitted he did not want arrested for having them. I told him to get in the 
vehicle and contact the courts and cleared the scene. I took into my possession the 
Drug Paraphernalia and the abnormal currency (3 - $100, and 1 - $20).

Upon discovery while writing my report, the citation issued at the scene is invalid. The 
crime is not a misdemeanor offense but rather and M-4. A summons will be sent to 
MCC#3 upon approval of Sgt. Kelm and then issued to Zachary upon court approval.

On 07/29/20 I, Ptl. Stanton  located Zachary Moore at the residence of Walter Ward in 
Beloit, Ohio.  I advised Zachary to disregard the MM citation and issued the Court 
Summons that was filed with the Village Ordinance accordingly.  I explained the phone 
arraignment and explained the consequences of not contacting the court on the 
appropriate day. 

I will be clear of the scene at this time. I will also be correcting the report to coincide

NOTHING FURTHER TO REPORT

with the caller in question. Telling her to place it on hold, I took the call. It was Allen 
Reed. I asked Allen Reed what was the nature of the call, advising he has called the 
Sebring Police phone line. Allen was hard to understand but it sounded like he was 
asking me to respond to the case I already responded to. I advised Allen that the case 
is being handled but he would not accept this and Continued to argue with me on the

On 7/30/2020 I was dispatched to 175 W. Ohio Ave. with Ptl. Stanton after being 
advised Allen Reed had made multiple calls to dispatch that were not police related 
throughout the day. I was also advised he was told not to call unless it was an 
emergency or there was a crime that occurred.

Upon arrival at the above residence both units made contact with Karen Hill who 
advised Allen "took off' and she did not know where he went. Myself and Ptl. Stanton 
then cleared the residence to search the area for Allen. Ptl. Stanton proceeded east on 
Ohio Ave. and I responded to the 200 block of W. Oregon Ave. where there was a 
previous incident at the beginning of my shift. When I arrived at the stop sign on N. 
16th St. and W. Oregon Ave. I observed Allen sticking his head out the front door of

noted that while speaking to Allen he had "pin point pupils", I could smell the odor of 
an alcoholic beverage emitting from his person, and he was slurring his speech. Allen 
advised he returned to Roberts residence to confront him about the earlier incident. I 
then handcuffed (gapped and double locked), and placed Allen in the rear of my 
cruiser. At this time Ptl. Stanton arrived on scene and began to talk to Robert who 
advised he did not give Allen permission to be in his house. Ptl. Stanton also spoke to 
Sean Mills and Catherine Cox who were in the residence at the time Allen entered and 
they advised they did not give permission for Allen to enter the residence. Sworn 
statements were written by all parties.

CRIMINAL - Disorderly Conduct

ARREST: James Kaminski, Age 43, 806 W. Ohio Ave.

Charge: 2917.11 Disorderly Conduct



On 07/17/2020 while on patrol I observed a quickly escalating argument unfolding In 
the parking lot of Circle K 205 E Ohio Ave. 

Upon making contact with the two parties Kandy Fredrick and James Kaminski arguing 
I quickly separated the two at which point my other two units Ptl. Stanton 506 and Ptl. 
Van Voorhis 519 were arriving on scene. I asked Ptl. Stanton to speak with Circle K 
employee to see if they had seen what happened and I had Ptl. van Voorhis speak 
with James while I spoke with Kandy. The following are the stories we received.

Kandy Fredricks advised to me that sometime ago James saw her pick up a 
gentleman walking on the side of the road. The individual happened to be black. Later 
on, at some point James entered her place of employment which is Dollar General in 
Beloit and questioned her on why she picked up a black man. According to Kandy 
James then yelled "white power" and began using the N word. That incident occurred 
outside of our jurisdiction. On this date when James saw Kandy, she advised he began 
screaming 'white power" and using the N word again in the middle of Circle K. Kandy 
then pulled out her phone to record the event which is when the argument moved 
outside.

Circle K employees advised Ptl. Stanton a similar story.

According to their account James entered the store and loudly began yelling "white 
power" and used the N word several times. They advised this action offended them 
and that James was no longer allowed in Circle K.  They also advised that when they 
asked James to leave he defended his actions and &as arguing with them as well. 
Simultaneously James advised to Ptl. Van Voorhis that he did yell white power and use 
the N word because he is retaliating against Kandy because she once called him a 
"Nigger Hater". James and his wife Amanda admitted that James was wrong and 
shouldn't be using such words, he also said he said he would willingly never return to 
Circle K.

Statements were obtained from Kandy, and Circle K employees. James refused to do 
a statement for Ptl. Van Voorhis. While on scene I felt James's action rose to the level 
of disorderly conduct. I contacted Chief Harris for his opinion and he advised that units 
should get the statements collect the facts and send everything for review by the 
prosecutor. If given approval by the prosecutor James could be cited for DOC at a later 
date. 

Circle K requested a Notice of restriction, James was verbally advised of said 
restriction and was told not to return to Circle K. NOR was completed and Circle K was 
given their copy, James is to pick his copy up later today 07/17/2020. 

I also requested Circle K produce a copy of the security footage showing James using 
racial slurs. This case will be pending for the time being.

Simultaneously James advised to Ptl. Van Voorhis that he did yell white power and use 
the N word because he is retaliating against Kandy because she once called him a 
"Nigger Hater". James and his wife Amanda admitted that James was wrong and 
shouldn't be using such words, he also said he said he would willingly never return to 
Circle K.

Statements were obtained from Kandy, and Circle K employees. James refused to do 
a statement for Ptl. Van Voorhis. While on scene I felt James's action rose to the level 
of disorderly conduct. I contacted Chief Harris for his opinion and he advised that units 
should get the statements collect the facts and send everything for review by the 
prosecutor. If given approval by the prosecutor James could be cited for DOC at a later 
date. 

Circle K requested a Notice of restriction, James was verbally advised of said 
restriction and was told not to return to Circle K. NOR was completed and Circle K was 
given their copy, James is to pick his copy up later today 07/17/2020. 

I also requested Circle K produce a copy of the security footage showing James using 
racial slurs. This case will be pending for the time being.

back with me to the front of my cruiser. While collecting Smart's information verbally, 
he advised he had several warrants for his arrest out of multiple law enforcement 
agencies. Due to the extreme level of cooperation from Smart, I allowed Smart to
