ARREST: Brandon Fall , 22, Lka 1000 W. Tennessee Ave, Sebring

Charge: 2925.11A F-5  Warrant / Possession / Bond $2,500


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 
well. When asked if it was for using methamphetamine, he said that it was with him 
also telling me that he had meth in his pocket as well.

I then removed Brandon's backpack from him and placed him in handcuffs, which were 
properly spaced and double locked. A subsequent search of Brandon's pockets found 
what appeared to be a marijuana cigarette, a mint container with several small baggies 
containing a light-colored crystalline substance, as well as a glass pipe. 

Upon searching Brandon's backpack, I located six butane torches, a digital scale, a pill 
bottle containing a green-vegatative substance that smelled to be marijuana, a "dab" 
pen along with several cartridges, several mirrors with residue of a light colored 
crystalline substance on them , two more glass pipes, a marijuana "grinder", a 
marijuana pipe, four syringes, as well as several plastic baggies that were similar to 
those the suspected methamphetamine was in. When asked Brandon did admitted 
that he used the butane torches to smoke meth, All contraband was seized.

Brandon was issued Uniform Traffic citation No, 031890 for Sebring Codified 
Ordnance 373.06 (lights and reflectors required on bicycles) as well as a minor 
misdemeanor citation for Sebring Codified Ordnance 513.121 (possession of 
marijuana paraphernalia). Brandon was advised to call Mahoning County Court #3 for 
information on further proceedings in the case. 

Both Matthew and Noah were given verbal warnings for not having lights on their 
bicycles. A summons will be drafted for the charges of possessing drug abuse 
instruments and drug paraphernalia due to his possessing the syringes and glass 
pipes, with additional charges possible pending laboratory testing of the suspected 
methamphetamine. All contraband was secured in temporary evidence , locker #1. 

Nothing additional to report at this time.

On 9-23-2020 received laboratory results from The Ohio Bureau of Criminal 
Identification which  determined that the light colored crystalline substance that was 
found in Fall's possession was methamphetamine. A state complaint and criminal rule 
4 for a warrant was drafted and will be submitted to the courts. This warrant will be for 
one fifth degree felony charge of possession of controlled substances, Ohio Revised 
Code 2925.11.

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.

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

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.

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

ARREST REPORT  September 30, 2020  @ 1246hrs
Case No.: 20009145 

Traffic
N. Johnson RD and W. Ohio Avenue

CITED: Catherine Smith , Age 65, 170 W. Vine Street Alliance, OH 

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 
time.

Case No.: 20010016

TRAFFIC
100 Block W Ohio Ave, Sebring, OH

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.

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

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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

Charge: ORC 2919.22 Endagering 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 thk 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 tirne,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

Cited: 41y/o Kristy Manley , 1320 10th Sweet N.W. Canton OH 

Charge: Wrongful Enhustrnent SCO: 335.05 


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 
stop.  The silver Impala bearing Ohio Registration HWA4372 came to a complete stop 
on Ohio Avenue after completing a right turn.  Upon making contact with the driver, 
Ryan Dupal, he advised that his driver license was suspended but that he had driving 
privilages to go to work.  At this point I noticed a subject who I know to be Sean Mills in 
the back seat.  I also noticed that Dupal appeared very nervous as was evident by his 
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.

Ohio Ave to collect a report over an lncident that occurred on July 30, 2020. The 
incident was a case of Domestic Violence between a wife and her husband involving 
possible drugs, and the wife's boyfriend.

The husband is Donald Myers of 345 E. Ohio Ave. He lives there with his now 
seperated wife Sara Myers and their 3 children -age 4. -age 2, and 9 month old . The 
house appeared nice on the inside, filled with toys, baby gates, and clean floors. Food 
was in the fridge with plenty of drinks for the children, formula and bottles also present. 
Donald met me outside near the back yard and walked me into the home.

Donald states that on July 30, 2020 around 1615hrs he came home early to surprise 
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 
Donald over the back with it. 

She then had the fork that was also on the wall and begun flinging  pictures off the wall 
onto the ground. She took things she could pick up to throw on the ground like an ash 
tray.

Donald also said she threatended to break the TV and all of his grandmothers 
heirlooms passed on to him. Donald told her to get her things and get  out.  Sara 
complied finally and took her things and left with XXXXX.

Donald  fed the kids, he called his lawyer who got back to him today and advised him 
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 
and added to the report which will all be to the court for a warrant for the arrest of Sara 
Myers.

On 08/13/2020 Sara Myers was picked up by the Salem Police department on her 
warrant. Sara was transported to Damascus Friend Church where I met with Salem 
and Recoged Sara on scene. Sara did sign a DV condition of bond and was advised 
she is not allowed around the Victim Donald Myers and was advised MCC#3 would 
contact her with a court date. I then cleared.

The husband is Donald Myers of 345 E. Ohio Ave. He lives there with his now 
seperated wife Sara Myers and their 3 children -age 4. -age 2, and 9 month old . The 
house appeared nice on the inside, filled with toys, baby gates, and clean floors. Food 
was in the fridge with plenty of drinks for the children, formula and bottles also present. 
Donald met me outside near the back yard and walked me into the home.

Donald states that on July 30, 2020 around 1615hrs he came home early to surprise 
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 
Donald over the back with it. 

She then had the fork that was also on the wall and begun flinging  pictures off the wall 
onto the ground. She took things she could pick up to throw on the ground like an ash 
tray.

Donald also said she threatended to break the TV and all of his grandmothers 
heirlooms passed on to him. Donald told her to get her things and get  out.  Sara 
complied finally and took her things and left with XXXXX.

Donald  fed the kids, he called his lawyer who got back to him today and advised him 
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 
and added to the report which will all be to the court for a warrant for the arrest of Sara 
Myers.

On 08/13/2020 Sara Myers was picked up by the Salem Police department on her 
warrant. Sara was transported to Damascus Friend Church where I met with Salem 
and Recoged Sara on scene. Sara did sign a DV condition of bond and was advised 
she is not allowed around the Victim Donald Myers and was advised MCC#3 would 
contact her with a court date. I then cleared.

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.

205 E. Ohio Ave. Sebring Ohio (Circle K)

ARREST:  ZACHARY MOORE , Age 33
707 County Rd. Amsterdam, 43903

Charge: 513.12  Drug Paraphernalia M-4 / Bond $500


Unit responded to a car accident at Circle K. I (Ptl. Stanton) arrived on scene on 
07/21/2020 at approximately 2000 hours to a car accident incident. Ptl. Brindack #504 
also responded and was also investigating. While investigating what had happened, 
Myself and Ptl. Brindack witnessed a young man later identified as Zachary Moore 
acting very irrationally coming out of the store.  He was sweating profusely and was 
talking very fast while not completing sentences. Zachary was also easily redirected to 
whoever would look at his direction. Ptl. Brindack verbally persuaded Zachary off to the 
side out of the immediate investigation to speak with him. Continuing my accident 
report the red vehicle (operated by Walter Ward) was backing up out of the parking 
space in a straight line and collided with the parked white vehicle. The white vehicle 
was pumping gas at this time. Ptl. Brindack was back on scene and we explained to 
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.


Ptl. Stanton #506
07/21/2020


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 
with the actions of today.

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

is being handled but he would not accept this and Continued to argue with me on the

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

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

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.

On 07/21/2020 MM Disorderly conduct charges were approved.

On 07/24/2020 James Kaminski was issued a citation for MM disorderly 2917.11 and 
advised MCC#3 would advise hlm of his court date. James and his family expressed 
concerns about a facebook post which allegedly containes "100s of threats to James"

Patrolman Vanvoorhis and I arrived on scene at the same time and approached 
apartment #5.

The door was closed and appeared to be locked but was able to be pushed in as there 
appeared to be damage to the door frame.  Dispatch advised the caller phoned back to 
report the suspect left and went into apartment #2. A search of apartment #5 was 
performed and it was discovered no one was living there anymore.

Patrolman Vanvoorhis and I approached apartment #2 and established contact with a 
shirtless male I knew to be Hunter Prendergast from prior interactions. Prendergast 
stated he went into the apartment because he thought Keith Lemasters still lived there 
and wanted to bum cigarette off of him. Prendergast was detained, placed in handcuffs 
befind his back (gapped/double locked) and placed in the rear of marked unit #301. I 
informed Prendergast he was detained pending further investigation.

Patrolman Vanvoorhis and I spoke with the original caller who was on the phone with 
the owner of the property who has been having problems with people going into into 
the vacant apartment even after changing the locks. I asked Courtney if he wanted to 
press charges against Prendergast and he stated he wanted charges. I asked 
Courtney to phone the station on the recorded ljne and speak with dispatch. Disbatch 
later confirmed Courtney wanted to follow through with criminal charges.

I went back to my cruiser and informed Prendergast he was under arrest for Breaking 
& Entering and informed him of his Miranda Rights. Prendergast acknowledged his 
rights and stated he was willing to waive them to make a statement. 

Apartment #5 was secured as best as we could given the damage to the door frame. 
While Patrolman Vanvoorhis remained on scene to gather a voluntary written 
statement from the caller, I transported Prendergast to the Sebring Police Department 
for processing. Upon arrival at the station, I provided Prendergast with a face mask 
and escorted him into the audio and video recorded squad room.

I removed the handcuffs from Prendergast and allowed him to put on a shirt, pair of 
shoes provided to us by his girlfriend and also provided him with a bottle of water. I 
allowed Prendergast to phone a bondsman as well as family and friends to acquire the 
funds needed for his bond.

TRAFFIC - WARRANT

ARREST: Clyton Smart, AGE 22, 4061 Reiss Rd, Rootstown, OH

Charges: 
ORC 4510.11  Driving Under Suspension (Noncompliance)

WARRANT (Alliance Police)



On Saturday, July 25,2020, while sitting in the parking lot of Perkins on Harrisburg 
Westville Rd (US BWY 62) and S Johnson Rd, I observed a silver Jeep with no 
registration pull up to the traffic light heading south. As the vehicle continued south 
through the intersection, I could hear the vehicle exhaust emitting excessive or 
unusual noise. I followed after the vehicle south into Columbiana County and activated 
my overhead emergency lights to initiate a traffic stop. The vehicle came to a complete 
stop on Knox School Rd just south of US HWY 62.

Upon establishing contact with the driver, identified as Clayton Smart, I identified 
myself and informed him of the reason for the stop. Smart immediately admitted he did 
not have a valid driver's license. I instructed Smart to turn the ignition off and walk 
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 
remain standing freely until I could verify what he told me.

Dispatch advised Smart did in fact have active warrants for his arrest and one of the 
agencies, Alliance Police Department, wanted him. Patrolman Vanvoorhis arrived on 
scene at this time to assist. I allowed Smart to speak with and hug his girlfriend before 
escorting him hack to my cruiser where I placed him in handcuffs behind his back 
(gapped/double locked) and allowed him to smoke a cigarette. Patrolman Vanvoorhis 
collected the girlfriend's information and we learned through dispatch she had a valid 
license through Florida but was suspended through Ohio.

Patrolman Vanvoorhis remained on scene while the girlfriend made efforts to get a 
valid driver to the scene to take control of the vehicle. I transported Smart from the 
scene to Duke and Duchess on US HWY 62 to meet with Alliance PD for the custody 
exchange. While waiting for the officer from Alliance to arrive, Smart was informed of 
his traffic citation (#031912) for driving under suspension and that his court 
appearance before Mahoning County Court #3 would be set at a later date. An

CRIMINAL - Disorderly Conduct

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

Charge: 2917.11 Disorderly Conduct



On 07/17/2020 whlle 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 hnd questioned her on why she picked up a black man. According to Kandy 
James ihen 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.

On 07/21/2020 MM Disorderly conduct charges were approved.

On 07/24/2020 James Kaminski was issued a citation for MM disorderly 2917.11 and 
advised MCC#3 would advise hlm of his court date. James and his family expressed 
concerns about a facebook post which allegedly containes "100s of threats to James"

ARREST REPORT  July 13, 2020
Case# 20-007083

CRIMINAL - DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

ARREST: Sherrie Simpson, Age 41
426 E. Vermont Ave, Sebring OH 

Charge: DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ORC 2919.25 (A)


Narrative by Ptl. Reed #507

On 07-13-2020 at 28:15 hours Ptl. Peterman and I were dispatched to Circle K at 205 
E. Ohio Avenue, regarding a report of a female subject who was assaulting a male. 
Upon arriving, I found a crowd of approximately a dozen people assembled outside of 
the business. As I approached, I asked what had happened, with a female employee 
of Circle K pointing to a female subject that was standing near the entrance to the 
store, who I know to be Sherrie Simpson, and saying that she was beating on a guy in 
a white car. When I asked Sinipson if the person who she had been fighting with was 
Patrick Levelle, she said that it was. It should be noted that I have handled domestic 
violence incidents between Simpson and Levelle in the past.

I then placed Simpson in handcuffs, which were properly spaced and double locked, 
before patting her down for weapons using the back of my hand. I noticed fresh cuts 
and blood on Simpsons hands at this time. I then secured Simpson in the back of 
Patrol car 301 so that I could determine who had witnessed the incident and what 
exactly they had seen.

All agreed to provide voluntary witness statements detailing what they had seen. I was 
also advised that the male half was now at the far end of the parking lot in his vehicle. I 
then instructed Ptl. Peterman to gather information and statements from the witnesses 
so that I could speak to the male subject.

Upon making contact with Patrick Levelle, who was sitting in a white Pontiac G8 at the 
other end of the parking lot, he advised that he had come to Circle K to get his dog 
from Simpson. Levelle said that Simpson had been drinking, left their house with the 
dog, and that she was trying to give it away at the store. Levelle said that he also went 
into the store to get cigarettes and upon coming out, got back into his vehicle, which 
was when he was approached by Simpson. Levelle said that Simpson then began 
striking him in his face and head through the open window of his car. Levelle also said 
that Simpson began striking the car as well, with her causing damage to the plastic 
rain guards on the driver side door. Pieces of the rain guards were laying in the parking 
spot where Levelle said that he had been parked at during the incident. When I asked 
Levelle if he were injured or needed medical treatment, he said that he was okay and 
was not injured. He also confirmed that he and Simpson still cohabitate together as 
boyfriend and girlfriend. I then briefly stepped away from Levelle so that I could check 
on what the witnesses had to say. While doing this, I overheard Simpson screaming 
profanities at Levella from the back of my patrol car. Because of this, I instructed 
Levelle to wait for me in the parking lot of Gionino's pizza. I also moved my patrol car 
to a parking spot. While in my patrol car I spoke to Simpson, with me reading her her 
Miranda rights. When I asked Simpson what had happened, she would only say that "it 
doesn't matter".

In speaking with the above listed witnesses, they all advised that Simpson had been at 
the store for approximately 45 minutes with the dog, that she was trying to give it away, 
and that Levelle had come to get the dog. The witnesses said that Simpson had 
approached Levelie while he was in his vehicle and began hitting him and the car, 
causing the damage to the rain guards. None of the witnesses said that they had seen 
Levelle attempt to fight back, nor had he at any point hit Simpson. I was also advised 
that Simpson had been drinking a long island iced tea while she was at the store.

I then went back to speak with Levelle in the parking lot of Gionino's. Levelle signed 
the domestic violence complaint form as well as provided me with a witness statement 
detailing his side of events.

When I asked if he wished to pursue criminal damaging charges for the damage that 
Simpson had done to his car, he said no, and that he believed she would be in enough 
trouble with the domestic violence charge. I then photographed the damage to 
Levelle's vehicle as well as a small amount of blood that was on the driver side door 
and that Levelle said he believed was from Simpson cutting herself while punching the 
car. Levelle then signed the domestic violence instruction form, with me tearing off a 
copy from the domestic violence packet and giving it to him. Levelle then left.

Because the evidence indicating that Simpson was the sole aggressor in the incident 
she was placed under arrest for domestic violence. Upon returning to the police station 
I reviewed her computerized criminal history (CCH). Because of two or more 
convictions for domestic violence or assault being present, Simpson was charged with 
a third-degree felony count of domestic violence, Ohio Revised Code 2919.25(A). After 
being photographed and the necessary paperwork completed, Simpson was 
transported to the Mahoning County Jail. Due to the degree of the offinse bail will be 
determined by a judge. Nothing additional to report at this time.

Case No.: 20007099

Criminal - Possession of Drug Paraphernalia

ARRESTED: Mercedias Johnson, Age 21
820 Milner St Alliance OH 

Charge: 2925.14 Possession of Drug Paraphernalia M4 / Bond $500 / E Ohio Ave., 
Sebring OH 


On this date while on patrol I was parked at Gioninos at 14th and Ohio Ave. While 
there I observed a dark colored BMW with red rims fail to yield to oncoming traffic 
leave the alley way behid Circle K on to 14th St. The vehicle proceeded North on 14th 
and then turned east onto E Maryland ave. The vehicle failed to signal 100 prior to the 
turn at which point I ihtiated a traffic stop in the 200 block of E Maryland Ave. At this 
time K9 Ptl. Stanton happened to be on E. Maryland and joined me on my stop.

I approached the vehicle a dark blue 2001 BMW bearing OHJBM1044 and identified 
my self to the driver Mercedias Johnson and informed her of the reason for the stop. 
Mercedias and her two passengers Michael Bean and a male later identified as 
Jonathan Cosgray began arguing stating they were being Harassed. I advised the 
parties that K9 Ptl. Stanton would be conducting a free air sniff of the vehicle and 
asked them to exit the vehicle. Ptl. Stanton conducted the sniff and informed me that it 
was a positive hit. I began searching the car, I located a backpack in the back seat with 
female clothes and fingernail products leading me to believe the bag belonged the bag 
was Mercedias. I located a book in the bag with her name on it conferming my 
suspicion. In this bag I located a blue eye glass soft case with a glass smoking pipe 
inside. The pipe was covered in white residue which is suspected to be 
methamphetamine.

While I was searching the car Ptl. Stanton identified the second passenger as 
Jonathan Cosgray, and dispatch advised Jonathan had a warrant out of Alliance. 
Jonathan was detained and put in the back of my patrol car.  I finished conducting my 
stop and informed Mercedias that she would be issued a summons for the 
paraphernalia. She was given a warning for Turn signal and failure to yield and cleared 
the area. By this time Alliance advised they would meet us at Ralph's Deli for Jonathan 
at which point I transported Jonathan to Ralph's and turned him over to Alliance 
without incident.


Mercedias will be issued a summons for 2925.14 drug paraphernalia M4. The pipe will 
be sent to the lab to test the substance. Ptl. Stanton discovered a small amount of 
marijuana on Johnathan which was taken for destruction. It is worth noting Mercedias 
was difficult and argumentative the entire duration of the encounter.

On July 21, 2020 at 0035 hrs while on a traffic stop on E. Ohio Ave, the driver of the 
vehicle, Mercedias Johnson, was served her summons.

Traffic - Speed

CITED: Eliyah Payton , age 21, 1020 New Jersey St. Gary, Indiana 46403

Charge: SCO: 333.03 Speed (40/25)


On 07/08/2020 at 06:30 hours I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 301. 
While stationary on west Texas Avenue in front of the F.A. Sebring Community Center, 
I observed a white sedan traveling eastbound on West Texas Avenue at a speed that 
appeared to be greater than that of the posted 25 MPH limit.

Upon activating my front facing radar antenna, I obtained a locked speed on the 
vehicle of 40 MPH. Once the vehicle passed me I activated my overhead emergency 
lights and positioned my patrol car behind it in order to intiate a traffic stop. 

The vehicle came to a stop at the intersection of Texas Avenue and South 15th Street. 
I then exited my patrol car, made contact with the single male driver, and informed him 
of the reason for the stop. Because of where we were stopped at possibly obstructing 
the flow of traffic, I instructed the driver to turn right on South 15th Street and pull 
several car lengths in. The driver followed my instructions, with me again approaching 
his car and making contact with him. 

When asked for his driver license, vehicle registration, as well as proof of insurance, 
the driver was able to produce an Indiana Driver License that identified him as Eliyah 
Payton. Mr. Payton was also able to produce his vehicle registration, but could not 
locate his insurance cards. Mr. Payton did however say that he keeps up to date 
insurance on the vehicle. When asked if he was aware of his speed, he said that he 
was not and that he was not familiar with the area nor the speed limit on Texas 
Avenue.

I then returned to my patrol car and wrote Uniform Traffic Citation No. 031891 to Mr. 
Payton for speed (Sebring Codified Ordnance 333.03), 40MPH in a posted 25MPH 
zone. Mr. Payton was advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for instructions on 
how to pay the citation or contest it if he wished to do so. He then signed the citation 
and was given his copy. 

Afterwards I cleared from the traffic stop with nothing additional to report.

Case No.: 20007013

CRIMINAL (SUMMONS)

ARREST: Fred Smith , age 28, 1385 S. Morgan Ave. Alliance, OH 44601

Charge: ORC: 2925.11(C)(2)  Possession of Controlled Substances (F-5)



On 07-01-2020 at 22:59 hours a subject called the police station to report that a male 
subject in a silver sedan with temporary tags was "hitting a ball pipe" in the parking lot 
at Circle K. Patrolmen Brindack, Stanton, and I immediately preceded to this location, 
with me arriving shortly after Stanton and Brindack. 

As I pulled into the parking lot, I observed both officers standing outside a silver 
Cadillac CTS, which had Ohio temporary registration K466904 attached. The vehicle 
was occupied by a single male subject who was sitting in the passenger seat. Upon 
making contact with him, I advised him of the complaint that we had received and 
asked if he had any identification on him. The subject identified himself as Josh 
Williams (age 36), and advised that he and his friend had just pulled in and that his 
friend had gone inside the store. When I asked if there was anything illegal in the 
vehicle, Williams said that there was not. I also asked Williams if he would step out of 
the car.  Williams then stepped out of the car, with him also granting me permission to 
perform a search of his person. No contraband or weapons were located.

At this point, I also noticed another Silver sedan parked in the parking lot. This vehicle 
also had temborary tags attached to it. I then requested Ptl. Stanton to perform an 
open-air sniff with K9, Radar, on the Cadillac CTS. Stanton advised that Radar did 
indicate a positive hit on the vehicle. 

An open-air sniff performed on the other sedan in the parking lot yielded negative 
results. Ptl. Brindack then went and retrieved the vehicles driver, Fred Smith, from 
inside Circle K. In speaking with Mr. Smith, I informed hirn,of the complaint that we 
recieved as well as the fact that Radar had indicated that the odor of drugs was 
present in the vehicle. When advised of this, Smith said that he had smoked marijuana 
in the car earlier.

Upon performing a probable cause search of the vehicle, I located four circular blue 
pills in the center console that were wrapped in aluminum foil. The pills were stamped 
"C1" and later determined to be 1mg Clonazapam, a schedule IV-controlled substance. 
I also found what appeared to be two THC cartridges near the pills. Mr. Smith did 
admit that this is what they were, with him saying that he smokes them through 
through a vape. 

When confronted with the pills, Smith said that they belonged to his girlfriend, Kristen, 
with him saying that she had left them there earlier and that she had a prescription for 
them. Smith's driver license was also found to be suspended. I informed Smith that 
because I had not encountered him driving on a public roadway, I would not issue him 
a citation for driving under suspension, but that he would need to get someone with a 
valid driver license to drive the car home. Smith then called a Delia Thompson, whom 
the vehicle was registered to, so that she could drive the car home.

In speaking further with Smith about the pills, I asked for his girlfriend's name again. 
Smith then went through his phone, with him spelling out her name as Christina. When 
asked what her last name, was Smith said that he did not know and that he had only 
been talking to her for a couple of weeks. I advised Smith that I would be confiscating 
the pills and that should it be possible for his girlfriend to receive them back, they 
would receive a phone call from the police department.

Delia Thompson then arrived to drive the Cadillac home. Smith was advised to contact 
the BMV regarding his driver license seeing as he said that he had paid a 
reinstatement fee and that his license should be valid. Thompson was advised that she 
needs to be sure that Smith's license is valid before allowing him to take a vehicle 
registered to her in the future or she could face wrongful entrustment charges. 

I then cleared from the call and returned to the police station. 

Upon writing the evidence cards for the confiscated pills and cartridges. I noted that 
only one of the two items I thought were THC cartridges were in fact that. The other 
item was a small glass container which appeared to possibly have residue of a 
crystalline substance inside. Both items will be secured in temporary evidence locker 
#1. The possibility of Mr. Smith facing charges for possessing the Clonazapan will be 
explored.  Nothing additional to report at this time.



Ptl. Reed  #507



On 07/07/2020 at 23:45 hours, I served Fred Smith  with a summons for possession of 
controlled substances Ohio Revised Code 2925.11(C)(2).  I made contact with Fred at 
his friends apartment at 247 Hester Ave. in Alliance.  Because Smiths Computerized 
Criminal History (CCH) showed that he had prior convictions for drug abuse offenses, 
this charge was elevated to a fifth degree felony.

After giving Fred his copy of the summons he was advised to call the court as soon as 
possible to provided them with a working phone number.  Fred was also made aware 
of his scheduled telephone arraignment at 10:30 AM on Jule 16th.

Nothing additional at this time.

Michael Host , age 46, 712 Colebrook ST., Louisville, 44641

Charge: 513.121 Possession of Drug Paraphernalia 


Following Narative by PtI.  Stanton #506 and K-9 RADAR  #580

Unit made a traffic stop. On 06/24/2020 at 2040 hours, I (Ptl. Stanton) #506 conducted 
a traffic stop on W. Ohio in the 700 Block near Johnson Rd. The vehicle has one 
working stop light while engaging the brakes. After I initiated the traffic stop, I asked 
the driver and the owner who identified himself as Randy Phillips if I was allowed to 
search the vehicle. They both advised me no. 

l then asked if they had any nuclear devices or explosives in the vehicle at this the. 
They again advised no.  I then asked them if they had any narcotics or forms of drugs 
in the vehicle, they again advised me no.

At this time, Ptl. Brindack #504 and Sgt Kelm #503 were on scene. I then asked the 
driver to turn the vehicle off and exit the vehicle. The were asking why and I advised 
them that I will be conducting a "free air sniff' with my K-9 as I am the handler and for 
my K-9's Safety I require them to exit the vehicle, all four passengers complied. The 
owner of the vehicle, Randy Phillips was very upset about this and stated it was 
"bullshit" rnultiple times. Once all 4 individuals exited the vehicle I deployed K-9 Radar. 
Radar started from the rear of the vehicle and went to the passenger side, nothing was 
found.

Keeping the leash loose in hand I walked with Radar to the front of the vehicle. Radars 
behavior began to change and he went under the vehicle into the engine compartment 
as I kept moving to the opposite side. Radar disengaged and began sniffing down the 
drivers side of the vehicle.  Again Radars behavior changed and he went under the 
half way point of the vehicle to sniff the under carriage. This was brief as I kept moving 
toward the rear of the vehicle. Radar began moving with me then rapidly snapped 
backwards toward the sewage compartment and shower intake hose connector on the 
said vehicle. Radar locked and stood still staring at the shower intake as I praised him 
off. 

I moved toward the front of the vehicle and disengaged completely from the source. I 
then re-engaged and deployed radar along the drivers side of the vehicle to verify my 
source and moved along the side of the vehicle with the leash loose in hand. Radar 
again locked on the side of the vehicle next to a compartment next to the hose intake. 
Radar stood in place and locked his gaze on to the compartment. This change in 
behavior confirmed my findings and I praised him off to continue to the rear of the 
vehicle to finish the sniff. Radar at this time went to the the driver rear corner of the 
vehicle and led me back to the intake source (wraping around the drivers side of the 
vehicle) as previously stated. At this time I rewarded Radar and walked him back to 
secure him in my cruiser.

I informed the four individuals K-9 Radar hit on the vehicle and I will be conducting a 
search given proper probable cause by my K-9. The owner again stated this is 
"bullshit" and began walking toward the vehicle. I instructed the owner to stay where 
he is at or he will be arrested. Throughout the search of the vehicle, every time I 
stepped out of the vehicle or around the vehicle in eye sight of the owner he attempted 
to move closer to open compartments for me. Sgt. Kelm and Ptl. Brindack also stated 
he offered to get a slice of pizza for them since they had some pizza in the vehicle. 

Upon searching the vehicle I discovered 7 grams of green leafy substance and various 
paraphernalia for grinding the green leafy substance. This was found in the oven in a 
"fanny pack" underneath the pizza box.  I completed my search with no other findings.  
The person who claims the items belonged to him was Michael Host. Michael Host will 
be cited for 513.121 Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.  His court date is to be set and 
he is mandated to appear.

All subjects at this time are released, the Paraphernalia and green leafy substance 
was confiscated.  The driver was issued a warning for one Stop Light While Brakes are 
Engaged.

Bond $4,000.00

Following Narative by Ptl. Reed #507

On 06-30-2020 at 03:28 hours, I was dispatched to 836 South 13th Street Apt. #4 
regarding a subject who forced his way into his neighbors residence through a door. 
Upon arriving, I made contact with the callers/complainants, Aaron Ostrosky and 
Marquise Burruss. Both of whom reside in the apartment. Also present was a Dylan 
Holmes who was visiting. In speaking with Burruss and Holmes, they advised that they 
were downstairs when Kieth Lemasters, who resides in apartment #5, forced his way 
in through the locked back door. Both subjects said that Lemasters was making 
statements about his daughter, Riley, being in the apartment. It should be noted that 
lemasters has forced his way into their apartment in tie past when he believed other 
people were inside. Holmes said that when Lemasters forced his way in he ran 
upstairs to tell Aaron Ostrosky what was going on.

In speaking with Ostrosky, he said that he and Burrus ordered Lemasters to leave the 
apartment, with him complying with their request after having made it through their 
kitchen and into the living room.

When asked if they wished to pursue charges regarding the matter. both Burruss and 
Ostrosky said that they would. I then entered their apartment where the two showed 
me the back door where Lemasters had made entry. The door knob and locking 
mechanism was damaged to the point of no longer being functional.

I then requested Mutual Aid from Smith Township before going over to apartment #5 
where I made contact with Lemasters. Mr. Lemasters was sitting on a chair in his 
kitchen. In speaking with Lemasters he admitted to having "broke down" the neighbors 
door, with him saying that I needed to do a welfare check at his neighbors apartment. 
Mr. Lemasters denied any recent drug or alcohol use with him repeating that he wasn't 
crazy, was not high. and that Riley was over there. 

Ptl. Toussant arrived to my location at around this time as well. I then instructed 
Lemasters to stand up, with me placing him in handcuffs, which were properly spaced 
and double locked. Lemasters was also searched incident to arrest with no contraband 
or weapons being located. Because his behavior was somewhat bizarre and he has a 
history or substance abuse, I requested Sebring Fire/EMS to evaluate Mr. Lemasters. 
Once cleared by Sebring Fire/EMS, Lernasters was transported to The Sebring Police 
Station after being charged with one 4th degree felony count of burglary (trespass in a 
habitation when a person is present or likely to be present), ORC 2911.12(B). 

Kieth was photographed and the necessary arrest paperwork completed. Due to his 
DNA already being in the CODIS system, DNA was not collected. He was then 
transported to The Mahoning County Jail.

Following Narative by PtI.  Stanton #506 and K-9 RADAR  #580

Unit responded to a unwanted guest.  On 06/27/20 at 2042 hours, myself (Ptl. Stanton) 
and Ptl. Van Voorhis #513 responded to an wanted guest at 136 S Johnson Ave. The 
complainant a Nicole Ketler advised Robert Doak was inside the residence and is 
possibly overdosing. 

While on scene, Nicole and Sherez Hurford were bickering with Robert. I told Sherez 
to immediately sit down as I entered through the front door she tried to leave the 
residence. Sherez followed my commands and I spoke with Robert while Ptl. Van 
Voorhis spoke with Nicole. I advised Robert to go to the Sebring Squad which is now 
on scene and be seen by them. Robert complied but was very talkative throughout my 
experience with him.  Robert denies any form of drug use at this time. No evidence of 
drug use have been found on scene at this time as well.

While Robert was being checked by squad I spoke with Nicole.  Sherez kept trying to 
enter into the conversation to "defend" Robert and I advised her to be quiet and stop 
interfering. Sherez has history of causing trouble and leaving crime scenes in the past. 
Nicole began to tell me Robert stole property out of a residence in Alliance and was on 
the phone with her at this time. I advised Nicole to have that person call Alliance Police 
to file a report. I asked Nicole about Robert and she advised she has a protection 
order against him and he is not suppose to be here. 

I had Dispatch verify the order and once verified I spoke with Squad about Roberts 
medical state.  Sebring Squad cleared Robert and I immediately placed him into 
custody and advised him why he is being arrested. Three small scales were 
confiscated but no charges are followed with these findings. I advised Nicole and 
Robert to stay clear of Sherez but Nicole allowed Sherez in her residence at this  time. 

Robert is being charged with Violating a Protection Order 2919.25 M1.  Ptl. Van 
Voorhis is transporting Robert DoaK to Mahoning County Jail at this time.

Following Narative by Patrolman Zachery Van Voorhis unit 523

On June 27, 2020 I, Patrolman Van Voorhis, responded with Patrolman Stanton to 136 
South Johnson road for a complaint of a violation of a No- contact order. The victim 
Nicole Ketler reported to dispatch that Robert Doak was in the house with her and 
possibly overdosed on Fentanyl.

Upon arrival to the home we knocked on the door and was allowed in to the residence. 
Nicole was sitting in the living room going through a red duffel bag and Robert was 
walking In the dining room / kitchen area. Also, in the home was a Sherez Hurford, 
who was near Robert.  Medics arrived momentarily after our arrival and were 
instructed to come in and evaluate Robert.

Patrolman Stanton began speaking with Nicole. Robert was patted down by myself 
with his consent to search for weapons before going with the medics to their 
ambulance.

Nicole alerted me to a knife at her legs which was under a t-shirt she had pulled from 
the duffel bag. It was a kitchen knife and it was secured. Nicole kept commenting that 
there was a no contact order placed by a judge and he was in violation by being there 
and that she did not want him there. She also said he overdosed on Fentanyl.

I contacted dispatch via radio to confirm there is an order in place. What was found 
was a judgement entry stating that he could not have contact with Nicole Ketler placed 
on the 18th of June, 2020. Nicole also pointed out his socks on the dining room floor 
that Mr. Doak had taken from his shoes when we asked him to step outside with the 
medics. I gave them to Patrolman Stanton and it was discovered inside the socks were 
two small scales. Nicole also gave me a pill bottle with Mr. Doak's name and 
prescription on the label for pills he needs to manage a health issue. lnside the bottle 
was a small clear bag with a white powdery substance inside.

After speaking with Nicole and hearing there was a no contact order placed due to a 
domestic violence arrest earlier in the year, Mr. Doak, once cleared by squad, was 
arrested and conveyed to the Sebring Police Department for processing to go to the 
Mahoning County Justice Center. After processing Mr. Doak, I transferred him to jail 
where he was booked in.

ARREST REPORT   JUNE 23, 2020
Case No.: 20006146 

CRIMINAL - Felonious Assault
Sebring P.D. 135 E. Ohio Ave Sebring, OH 44672

ARREST: Dustin Stine (M-Age 22), 745 W. Oregon Ave. Sebring, OH

Charge: ORC 2903.11(A)(1) Felonious Assault (F-2)


On 06-23-2020 at 06:24 hours, I was requested at the police station to speak to a 
subject. 

Upon arriving, I met with a Tiffany Stine in the lobby area. A Hunter Harper and Branty 
Smith arrived shortly after. Tiffany had blood streaming down from her nose and she 
was also bleeding from a cut on her scalp. She was emotionally distraught and having 
trouble catching her breath to tell me what had happened. Tiffany was eventually able 
to explain to me that she had been assaulted by her brother, Dustin Stine, at their 
residence at 745 W. Oregon Avenue. Tiffany said that at around 06:00, she, her 
boyfriend, Hunter Harper, and their friend, Branty Smith, had gone to her house to pick 
up her brother to give him a ride to work. Prior to entering the residence Tiffany said 
that she could hear her brother throwing things in the house and screaming. Tiffany 
said that aside from her brother, no one else was in the house.


Tiffany said that she and Harper then entered the house and that her brother was in 
his room with the door locked. Tiffany said that she knocked on the door and her 
brother opened it, with him then "getting in her face". Tiffany said that she pushed him 
back slightly and that he then began punching her in the face. Tiffany did say at this 
point that she "swung back", and that Harper attempted to intervene but was 
overpowered by Dustin, who then pulled her to the floor and continued striking her in 
the face and body. Tiffany said that everything went black at that point but she knew 
that she had been hit in the head with a picture frame. 

Sebring Fire/EMS arrived to assess Tiffany, with me speaking with and obtaining 
witness statements from Branty Smith and Hunter Harper.

In speaking with Harper, he also advised that upon arriving to the residence they could 
hear Dustin inside screaming. Harper said that Tiffany entered the house first and that 
he could hear her saying "get away from me", with him then going inside and seeing 
Dustin punch Tiffany in the nose. Harper said that he got in between them and that 
Dustin then threw a picture frame at Tiffany that struck her in the head. Harper said 
that they then left and came to the police station.

In speaking with Smith, he advised that he walked into Tiffany's house and saw her 
and Dustin fighting and that he began to try to break them up. Smith said that Dustin 
took Tiffany to the ground and that he saw him hit her in the face. Smith did say that 
upon getting up he saw Tiffany approaching Dustin, with Dustin then picking up a 
picture frame that he threw at Tiffany, striking her in the head. Smith said that they then 
left and came to the police station. A Timothy Billiter, who identified himself as Tiffany's 
step father arrived to the police station at around this time as well.

Sebring Fire/EMS then transported Tiffany to Alliance Community Hospital for 
treatment. Prior to transporting her, I was able to get photographs of Tiffany's face, 
scalp, and marks that she had on her left arm. 

Upon arriving to the Emergency Department (E.D.), I again made contact with Tiffany, 
who was still very emotionally distraught. Tiffany was able to provide a witness 
statement as well as sign parts of the domestic violence complaint form and medical 
release form before medical staff came in to staple the wound on her scalp. Tiffany did 
state multiple times that she wanted her brother charged. Tiffany was provided with an 
instruction for filing domestic violence form as well. I then left the hospital to return to 
the village and attempt to locate Dustin.

In speaking with Chief Harris on the phone, he advised that Mr. Billiter was going to 
bring Dustin in to the police station. 

Upon returning to the station, I met Dustin in the lobby area. Dustin accompanied me 
back to the squad room where I read him his Miranda rights and asked if he 
understood and if he would like to speak with me about the incident. Dustin said that 
he did understand and wanted to talk about what had happened. Dustin said that he 
and his sister began arguing because he would not go get cigarettes. Dustin said that 
Tiffany threatened to not give him a ride to work, and that he then closed his bedroom 
door and began slamming drawers. Dustin said that Tiffany, Smith, and Harper then 
left and returned a short time later, with Tiffany then coming to his bedroom door with a 
knife and asking him what he is breaking. Dustin said that Harper then placed himself 
between the two in an attempt to prevent an altercation, and that Tiffany began trying 
to work past Harper to hit him. Dustin said that while Tiffany was hitting him, he was 
able to grab the knife from her, with it then being thrown to the floor. Dustin said that he 
and Tiffany proceeded to the Kitchen where they continued to fight and that Tiffany 
was able to get the knife a second time, with her threatening to stab him. Dustin said 
that he again was able to take the knife from her and that things began to de-escalate. 

Dustin denied ever having thrown a picture frame at Tiffany and said that while she 
was attacking him, he pulled her by her hair and that she probably hit her head on 
something while this was happening. It should be noted that I did not observe any 
marks on Dustin aside from abrasions to his left knuckles as well as minor scratches 
between his thumb and pointer finger on his left hand. Dustin said that after taking the 
knife from Tiffany the second time that he hid it under some magazines on a desk in 
the office room of the house. When asked about prior incidents of violence between 
him and his sister he made mention of an incident that occurred approximately six 
months ago when his sister was abusing Xanax and assaulted their mother. A later 
check through the department dispatch system showed a domestic dispute between 
Dustin and his mother on 03/03/2020, a physical altercation between Dustin and his 
sister , and a physical altercation between Dustin and his mother's boyfriend on 
03/08/2017.

Due to the severity of Tiffany's injuries as well as evidence pointing to Dustin being the 
primary aggressor, I placed him under arrest for felonious assault, ORC 2903.11(A)(1). 
Dustin was placed in handcuffs which were properly spaced and double locked. I then 
began to complete the necessary arrest paperwork, with Dustin sitting on the other 
side of the desk from me in the squad room. Dustin began screaming that he should 
not be getting arrested. He then slammed his head into the desk several times, 
resulting in a cut to his forehead. I did pull Dustin away from the desk at this point to 
prevent further self-injury from occurring. Ptl. Villanueva arrived shortly after and 
Sebring Fire/EMS arrived to assess Dustin. 

After completing the necessary paperwork and being treated by Sebring Fire/EMS, I 
transported Dustin to The Mahoning County Jail. Once at the jail, medical staff rejected 
Dustin due to them requiring medical clearance from a hospital due to the wound on 
his head. I then transported Dustin to Mercy Health St. Elizabeth's Hospital where he 
was treated and discharged for the injuries to his head. He was then transported to 
The Mahoning County Jail without incident, where he was held without bail pending 
further court proceedings. 

Ptl. Villanueva did go to the Stine residence where she collected the kitchen knife that 
Tiffany allegedly pulled on Dustin as well as the picture frame that he allegedly hit her 
with. Nothing additional to report at this time.

WARRANT # 20CRB173

Summonsed: Kimberly  Brown (Age 50), 515 N 19th St, Sebring, OH 44672

Charge: SCO 505.01(c) Dogs Running At Large (M-4)


On June 14, 2020, 1 Patrolman Van Voorhis was dispatched to 425 N 19th street to 
speak with the resident there regarding his neighbor's pit bull being in his yard. The pit 
bull belongs to Kimberly Brown of 515 N 19th street. The pit bull was dark in color and 
running north on 19th towards West Virginia ave and then east on West Virginia.

I made contact at the residence with a juvenile male, son of Kimberly Brown. I 
explained his dog was loose and he stated, " I know". I asked him to retrieve the dog 
and he put his shoes on and came out to get the dog. The neighbor who called stated 
this was almost a weekly occurrence with the dog and the last time a neighbor 
grabbed it and returned it to them. Patrolman Marchionda also came over to assist in 
catching the dog and stated he knew there was a few times where they had been 
called out for this same incident.

Eventually, Patrolman Marchionda was able to pull his cruiser in front of the dog and I 
was able to grab his collar and lead him back to the residence. The dog was placed 
back in the residence with the juvenile. After hearing multiple neighbors state while the 
dog seemed docile enough they still fear their children to be outside unsupervised, I 
believed it to be necessary to summons Ms. Kimberly Brown to court over this ongoing 
issue.

On Monday, June 22, 2020, a summons for Kimberly Brown was delivered to her 
residence at 515 N 19th St.

On 06-11-2020 at 21:07 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 
301. While southbound on street, just south of the railroad tracks, I observed a dark 
gray sedan that was traveling northbound at a rate of speed that appeared to be higher

Charges: 
ORC 2921.31 Obstructing Official Business (M2) /  Bond $1,000

SCO: 373.06 Lights and Reflectors on Bicycles


At 22:31 hours, on April 18, 2020, I was patrolling the 600 block of West Oregon 
Avenue when I observed a male subject, who was dressed in dark clothing, riding 
westbound on bicycle with no illumination on it. Upon turning my patrol car around, I 
initiated a traffic stop on the subject just before Johnson Road. Upon making contact 
with the subject, I informed him of the reason for the stop as well as asked for his 
identification. The subject gave me an Ohio Identification card, which identified him as 
Branty Smith. When I asked where he was going, he said to pick up food at Zep's 
Pizza. I then asked Smith if he had anything illegal on him, with him saying that he did 
not and granting me permission to search his pockets. Upon searching the small 
pocket on the right side of Mr. Smith's pants, I located a small baggie containing a 
light-colored powder substance. I then instructed Smith to place his hands behind his 
back in order for me to handcuff him. Mr. Smith then sprinted away, running westbound 
across the street, with me pursuing.

While pursuing Smith, I yelled for him to stop multiple times, as well as drew my 
department issued taser and advised him that if he did not stop, I would taser him. 
While running through the front lawn of a residence on the south side of Oregon 
Avenue, I tripped, falling to the ground, with Smith continuing on behind the residence. 
As I came around the back of the residence, I lost track of where Smith had gone. 
Upon going back toward my patrol car, a male subject from a residence on the north 
side of the road came out and told me that his wife believed that she had seen Smith 
come out and hide behind some bushes at a house on the south side of the road, back 
toward 20th street.

Upon checking this area, I was able to locate Smith hiding behind the bushes in the 
front lawn of a residence on the south side of the road. At taser point I ordered Smith 
to come out and to keep his hands where I could see them. At around this time I was 
joined by Smith Township patrolmen Toussant and Caughey, as well as Sebring 
Patrolman Peterman. I then pulled Smith out from the bushes, with Caughey placing 
him in handcuffs, which were properly spaced and double locked. Smith was also 
thoroughly searched for additional weapons or contraband with none being located. I 
then walked Smith back to my patrol car, reading him his Miranda rights on the way 
there. When I asked Smith if he wished to speak to me regarding the matter, he stated 
"I'm sorry for running, that's all I got to say".

Smith was then taken to the Sebring Police Station where he was photographed, finger 
printed and processed. Smith was charged with a minor misdemeanor charge of Lights 
and reflectors on Bicycles (Sebring Codified Ordnance 373.06), as well as one second

Charges:
ORC: 2913.51 Receiving Stolen Property (M1)

ORC: 2913.02 Theft (M1)

ORC: 2913.21 Misuse of Credit Cards (M 1)


On 04-25-2020 at 19:28 hours, Dale Yaggi called the station to report suspicious 
activity on his Citizen's Bank account as well as Chase credit card account. In 
speaking with Yaggi, he advised that he received several email notifications regarding 
having signed up for Zelle through his Citizen's Bank account as well as Chase Pay, 
which was linked to his PayPal account. Yaggi said that he never signed up for either 
of these but that as of yet no money has been withdrawn from any accounts.

I advised Yaggi to immediately call these banks to file a report with them. Yaggi said 
that he tried to but they had no one available due to the Covid-19 pandemic. I informed 
Yaggi that I would complete a report on the matter and asked that he forward the 
emails that he had received from his banks to my department email. Yaggi was also 
instructed to continue trying to contact his banks.

Upon reviewing the emails Yaggi forwarded to me, I found several from Chase Bank 
regarding setting up Chase Pay through PayPal and Wal-Mart, as well as a Chase 
Mobil account. Sent from Citizen's Bank were several emails regarding setting up a 
Zelle account, which allows money to be shared between bank accounts in the United 
States, as well as one confirming that contact information for ( ) had been added or 
changed on the account. Also forwarded to me was an email from Discover regarding 
unrecognized account activity, which Yaggi did not mention during our phone 
conversation.

In attempting to reach Yaggi at the phone number he provided me with for further 
information, I was unable to do so. Further contact will be attempted at a later time to 
determine if in fact a crime occurred.



Ptl. Reed #507


On 4-25-2020 at 22:30 hours, I was able to reach Mr. Yaggi for further information on 
the suspicious activity. Yaggi advised that the activity on his Discover card that the 
email was in reference to was when someone had attempted to link his Discover and 
PayPal accounts. Yaggi also further advised that at 22:17 someone had attempted to 
make a purchase on Walmart.com for $63.00 but that it had been declined. Yaggi was 
unable to give me a transaction number from the WalMart attempt for me to follow up 
on. 

When I asked Yaggi if anyone could have gotten into his wallet and taken his credit 
card or banking information he said no and that he keeps that stuff locked up. I also 
asked if someone could have gotten access into any of his electronics such as phones 
or computers to get the information, with him again saying no. Nothing additional to 
report at this time.

Traffic - Operator License Required
300 Block East Indiana

CITED:  Richard Miller (AGE 71)
18080 6th Street Beloit, OH

Charge: 335.01 Operator License Required (Failure to Reinstate)


On 05-30-2020 at 20:51 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 
301. While patrolling eastbound on East Virginia Avenue, I conducted a random 
registration check of the vehicle traveling in front of me. The vehicle was a Silver 
Hyundai Sante Fe, bearing Ohio registration GLA 5843. I was advised by dispatch that 
the vehicle was registered to a Richard Miller, whose driver license is under a failure to 
reinstate status. I then activated my overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic 
stop. The vehicle came to a stop in the 300 block of East Indiana Avenue.

Upon making contact with the male driver, I requested his driver license, vehicle 
registration, as well as proof of insurance. The driver was able to produce all three 
documents, with his Ohio driver license identifying him as Richard Miller. In speaking 
further with Mr. Miller, he acknowledged that he was aware that his driver license was 
not valid and said that he believed it was because he didn't pay a fee to the Bureau of 
Motor Vehicles. I also asked for identification from the adult male who was riding in the 
front passenger seat of Mr. Miller's vehicle. The passenger handed me an Ohio Driver 
License that identified him as Jason Truitt. I also noticed that Pat Ross was a backseat 
passenger in the vehicle as well.

I then returned to my patrol car and wrote Uniform Traffic Citation No.031888 to Mr. 
Miller. Mr. Miller was cited for operator license required, Sebring Codified Ordnance 
335.01. It was also confirmed through dispatch that none of the three occupants had 
outstanding warrants for their arrests. 

Ptl. VanVoorhis arrived to my location at around this time. Mr. Miller then signed the 
citation, was given his copy, and advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 for 
information on further proceedings in the case. Miller was given a mandatory court 
appearance. Mr. Truitt, who has a valid driver license, agreed to drive Miller's car home 
in lieu of it being towed. Prior to departing, I did ask for and receive consent to conduct 
a search of the vehicle. No contraband was located during this consent search. 

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

Case No.: 20005165

TRAFFIC - OVI
500TH BLK WEST OHIO AVE

CITED: SCOTT ALZNER ,58, 9168 TREASURE BLVD, N. BENTON OH 44449

Charges:

OVI (SFST  ORC 4511.19A1A  /  Bond $500

OVI(>. 17)   ORC 4511.19A1H

LEFT OF CENTER  ORC 4511.28 MM


On 05/25/2020, I, Ptl. Villanueva while on patrol in a marked police cruiser was 
traveling West on West Ohio Ave. When I observed a vehicle in front of me that was 
traveling in the same direction go left of center 3 times.

I activated my emergency overhead lights and initiated a traffic stop on the 500 Block 
of West Ohio and N. 19th Street. The vehicle was a Silver Kia bearing Ohio registration 
FIV2766. I exited my cruiser and approached the vehicle on the driver side and made 
contact with the driver later identified as Scott Alzner. I informed Scott of the reason I 
had stopped him and requested his driver's license, registration, and proof of 
insurance. Scott had his registration in hand and looked it over repeatedly before 
handing it over to me. He then began looking for his license in his wallet before finally 
handing it over to me.

I could detect an odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the vehicle. I asked Scott 
if he had consumed any alcoholic beverages prior to operating his motor vehicle and 
Scott said no before eventually stating he has had a couple of beers. I asked Scott 
when he consumed the alcoholic beverages and he said probably since 5 in the 
morning.

I notified dispatch that the traffic stop was a possible OVI and Ptl. Brindack alrived on 
the scene to assist. I asked Scott if he would take the SFST's (Standardized Field 
Sobriety Test's), Scott said he would. I turned off the front portion of my light bar and 
had Scott exited his vehicle. I had Scott stand straight up with his hands to his side 
and his feet together and I asked if he had any medical conditions or had a head injury 
recently to which Scott stated no to the questions.

I then checked Scott's eyes for a resting nystagmus, equal pupil size, and equal 
tracking. Scott did not have a resting nystagmus, both of Scott's pupils were of equal 
size, and both of Scott's eyes tracked equally. The first test was the Horizontal Gaze 
Nystagmus after explaining the instructions I asked Scott if he understood and he said 
he understood. Once the test began, I observed the following clues: Lack of smooth 
pursuit in both eyes, Distinct nystagmus at maximum deviation in both eyes, and 
Onset nystagmus prior to 45 degrees in both eyes.

The next test was the Walk and Turn, I had Scott stand straight up with his hands to 
his side and his right foot in front of his left foot and told him to stay in that position until 
instructed otherwise. I performed the test to demonstrate it, once I told Scott the 
instructions, I asked him if he understood and Scott said that he did understand. Clues 
that I observed were could not keep balance and started too soon. He then attempted 
to stand in the position but fell over and advised me he couldn't because he has a bad 
leg. I then asked him why he didn't tell me about his leg when asked before and he 
stated he's never been to a doctor for it. I then asked if he would get back into position 
and he stated he wouldn't be able to because he's going to fail. Officer Brindack then 
asked if he was refusing the test and Mr. Alzner stated he was not and began doing 
the test before I gave instructions. I then asked him to stop and go back into the 
position he was instructed to stay in until I explain the test and so he attempted to 
again and tipped over again. He then stated again he can't. So due to the failed 
attempts and him stating he could not do the test we stopped this portion of the 
SFST's.

The next test was the One Leg Stand, I had Scott stand straight up with his hands to 
his side and his feet together and told him to stay in that position until instructed 
otherwise. He stated he understood and I began to perform the test to demonstrate. 
Once I told Scott the instructions, I asked him if he understood and Scott said that he 
did. Clues I observed were he could not keep balance and he stopped the test multiple 
times before finally refusing this test as well and so he was placed in custody for 
suspicion of OVI and place in hand restraints, read his rights and search by Ptl. 
Brindack before being placed in the rear of marked until #304. Ptl. Brindack performed 
an inventory of the vehicle and stood by for Springer's Towing that towed the vehicle to 
10 N. 12TH St.

I transported Scott back to the police department where I performed a 20-minute 
observation period and while doing so I asked Scott if he would be willing to submit to 
a Urine and Breath test in which he agreed. Due to not having an lntoxilyzer 8000 
Operator at station, Scott was transported to Alliance Police Department to have the 
test done. Officer McCord observed as I read BMV 2255 form and once it was 
complete, McCord obtained a breath sample from Scott which the results were BAC 
0.269 9/210L.

I informed Scott that he was now under administrative license suspension and was not 
to operate any motor vehicle and I confiscated his driver's license. Scott had not had 
any prior convictions for OVI in the last 10 years. Scott was issued a traffic citation for 
OVI (SFST) ORC 451 1.19A1A, OVI (>.17) ORC 4511.19A1 H, and Left of Center 
ORC 4511.29. Scott was cited into Mahoning County Court #3 personal appearance 
required on 05/28/2020 at 9:00am.

After paper work was completed and Scott received copies of his traffic citation which 
he signed, the BMV 2255 form and his breath results. Scott was released on his own 
recognizance with a bond amount of $500.00.

ARREST REPORT     May 24, 2020  @   1056hours
Case No.: 20005159

CRIMINAL - Domestic Violence

ARREST: Robert Doak , 42,  LKA 136 S Johnson Rd, Sebring, OH 44672

Charge: Domestic Violence (F-3)  ORC 2919.25A /  Bond TBS


While en route to the aforementioned address, dispatch requested Smith Township 
Patrolman Caughey to stage in the area for mutual aid. Having knowledge Sebring and 
Smith Township officers were at this address very recently, I went ahead and initiated 
mutual aid and requested Patrolman Caughey to respond. Upon arrival, having 
knowledge person(s) in the residence recently tested positive for COVID-19, we put on 
face masks and gloves prior to approaching the residence.

As we approached the front door, a male later identified as Robert Doak exited the 
front door and appeared confused as to why we were there. A short time later, a 
female identified as Nicole Ketler exited the front door appearing upset and distraught. 
Patrolman Caughey and I separated the parties and talked to them individually. I spoke 
with Doak on the front porch while Patrolman Caughey spoke with Ketler in the front 
yard.

Doak claimed nothing happened and any marks on Ketler were a result of the two 
having consensual sex the previous night. Ketler claimed Doak had been physically 
abusing her today, yesterday and so on. Ketler claimed the two did not have sex; that 
all marks on her body were from him assaulting her and throwing objects at her. At first 
observation, I saw Ketler's neck to be red with marks on her upper chest and a minor 
scratch on her neck. I observed what appeared to be hickeys on the left side of her 
neck that Ketler claimed were not from consensual sex. I also observed some bruising 
and track marks on Ketler's left arm. As Ketler spoke, her voice appeared to be 
strained and hoarse.

Ketler stated Doak has been assaulting her for days and had even choked her out 
before our arrival. Ketler also claimed Doak threatened to kill her and put her in a 
coma. Doak, appearing calm but somewhat agitated, denied all of the accusations 
against him. Ketler claimed she did not have sex with Doak because of his HIV 
positive status. Doak did admit to being HIV positive and made several remarks 
indicating the two had been sexually active.

Ketler stated she was in fear for her life going forward and when asked, advised she 
wanted to pursue domestic violence charges against Doak. Doak was instructed to 
turn around and place his hands behind his back. Doak was cuffed (gapped/double 
locked), informed of the charge against him and informed of his Miranda Rights which 
he stated he understood and that he was willing to waive them to provide a statement 
later at the station. Doak was subsequently searched for weapons and secured in the 
back seat of marked unit #303.

I presented the domestic violence complaint packet to Ketler and explained it to her. 
Ketler signed the domestic violence complaint and denied the offer for medical 
attention. Photographs were taken of Ketler's neck, upper chest and left arm. At this 
time, Patrolman Vanvoorhis arrived on scene to relieve Patrolman Caughey. I provided 
Ketler with the domestic violence information sheet and explained the steps she 
needed to take going forward. I retrieved a voluntary written statement packet to Ketler 
and explained it to her. I left Ketler in the company of Patrolman Vanvoorhis to 
complete her statement while I transported Doak to the Sebring Police Department for 
processing. Before departing the scene, I obtained Doak's prescription medications 
from Ketler.

Following my arrival at the station, Doak was escorted into the audio and video 
recorded squad room where his cuffs were removed. Doak was provided with gloves 
and a face mask due to his COVID-19 positive status. Doak was allowed to make 
phone calls as well as access to water and the restroom. Doak was photographed and 
informed due to past felony domestic violence convictions, he would be transported to 
the Mahoning County Justice Center and his bond set by a judge at a later date.

After being notified by dispatch, I placed a call to Chief Harris who informed me due to 
Doak's COVID-19 positive status, that I was to place him in a cruiser as soon as 
possible to minimize contamination of the station. Before doing this, I again informed 
Doak of his Miranda Rights on camera. Doak acknowledged his rights and invoked 
them; changing his mind from earlier. Doak was placed in handcuffs behind his back 
again (gapped/double locked) and secured in the back seat of marked unit #303. 
Patrolman Vanvoorhis arrived at the station with Ketler's statement and remained 
outside to monitor Doak. The rear windows of #303 were rolled completely down and 
Max A/C put on high.

After gathering all the appropriate jail paperwork, I transported Doak to the Mahoning 
County Justice Center in Youngstown. The Mahoning County Justice Center accepted 
custody of Doak where he will remain until his appearance before Mahoning County 
Court #3 on Thursday, May 28, 2020. I returned to the Sebring Police Department to 
complete all appropriate paperwork and to review Ketler's voluntary written statement.

According to Ketler's statement, Doak has been physically abusing her throughout 
their time in quarantine and she is in fear for her life. Ketler claims she has witnesses 
that can corroborate her statements but none were at the residence while we were 
there. At the end of her statement, Ketler claimed to have picked up a metal vase and 
struck Doak in self defense; a detail she did not convey while I was on scene. Doak 
never reported any injuries to me and I never observed any to his person.

Charges: 

Headlights on Motor Vehicles SCO: 337.03(a) 

Driving Under Suspension  ORC 4510.11


On 05-23-2020 at 22:56 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 
303. While patrolling southbound on North Street nearing West Ohio Avenue, I 
observed a black Chevrolet Cavalier traveling westbound on Ohio Avenue with only 
one headlight illuminated. I then positioned my patrol car behind the vehicle, activated 
my overhead eniergency lights, and initiated a traffic stop on the black cavalier, 
bearing Ohio Registration HLW 4457.

The vehicle came to a stop in the 400 block of West Ohio Avenue. Upon making 
contact with the driver, I informed him of the reason for the stop as well as asked for 
his driver license. The subject then produced an Ohio Driver License, which identified 
him as Michael Lamar Williams.

Upon relaying Mr. Williams's information to dispatch, I was advised that he is currently 
under a 12-point driver license suspension. It was also determined that he was the 
registered owner of the vehicle.

In speaking further with Mr. Williams, I advised him that his license was showing up as 
being suspended and asked him to step out of the vehicle. Mr. Williams maintained 
that he had just been issued his driver license several months ago and that he did not 
believe it to be suspended.

okay and she stated they were fine with no injuries. She also stated that one girl said 
how she was very hungry and only ate cereal for that day.

I arrived at Nicole's home and immediately noticed the back door wide open. I banged 
on the door repeatedly until I finally made contact with Nicole's boyfriend. I requested 
he go and wake Nicole up so I could speak to her and he obliged. Once Nicole came 
to the door, I asked if she was missing her daughters. She stated she was and that she 
received a text from her brother stating how the girl's walked from her house to theirs. I 
asked if she locked the doors and she stated that they did right before they all decided 
to take a nap. She stated that she doesn't understand how the girls got out of the 
house because the deadbolt was also locked. I asked her why she would go to sleep 
when her 3 & 5 year old were wandering around the house alone. She stated that she 
put the girl's down for naps and she took one with them along with her boy friend.

After clearing, I was enroute to the home where the girls were. Upon arrival, I was 
awaited by the brother who let me into the home. I asked if I could see the girl's to 
ensure they were okay and they walked me over to the kitchen where I saw one girl 
sitting at the table eating. She quickly smiled and soon after the other girl entered and I 
asked her if she was okay. She stated she was okay and she began eating. 

Grandmother then began explaining how her daughter has had two encounters with 
CPS because of her actions. She then began to go into detail of both cases. (-) then 
called Nicole to come to the home because the girl's wanted to see their mother. When 
Nicole arrived, I let them have a moment alone with their mother and made a call to my 
supervisor SGT. Kelm. After my call, I asked  if she could take the girls to another room 
to watch a movie. After the girl's had their movie set up in another room I took Nicole 
into custody and read her rights. She stated she understood her rights and I 
transported her to station to be processed.

CPS was contacted and they confirmed that the girl's can be given to their 
grandmother and if mom wanted to be with them then she would have to stay at her 
home or else (all) would have to stay at Nicole's home. But Nicole could not take the 
children tonight (05/18/2020).

On 05-15-2020 at approximately 21:05 hours, I was in the parking lot of Sebring

loud diesel truck rewing its engine. Shortly after hearing this, I was advised by dispatch 
of a white truck with cab lights speeding up and down Indiana Avenue as well as 
peeling tires. 

Upon pulling onto Indiana Avenue from the high school parking lot, I observed a truck

Charge: Dogs running at large   SCO: 505.01(c) (MM)


On 05-15-2020 at 1458 hours, I was dispatched to take a report of a dog bite from a 
subject at 396 East Ohio Avenue. Upon arriving to the residence I made contact wit the 
caller / complainant, Aaron Wood. Mr. Wood advised that while walking home from 
Circle K he was walking down the sidewalk when he was bit by a tan pit bull breed 
dog. Wood said that the dog came from either the yard or the porch of the house 
directly across from the fire station and that several people who were sitting on the 
porch called the dog back. Wood showed me a tear in his pants on his right thigh as 
well as a puncture wound to his left thigh. Wood's wound and the tear on his pants 
were each photographed. Wood also declined medical treatment when offered but did 
provide me with a voluntary witness statement that I told him I would return later to 
pick up.

I then proceeded to 246 East Ohio Avenue, where I found Budd Kuyper, Crystal Black, 
Glenn Fournier, and George Carl sitting on the porch. Also present was a tan female 
pit bull, named Mischief, that Budd said belonged to him. In speaking with Budd he did 
admit that his dog had gotten loose from the porch and attacked Wood. Budd said that 
he didn't think the dog had actually bit Wood and admitted to only seeing her "nip at 
him". 

Budd provided me with a voluntary witness statement as well as documentation that 
his dog had received a rabies shot last month. I then left Kuyper's residence, returned 
to wood's to pick up the witness statement, and then cleared from the call. Upon 
returning to the police station I was able to verify that Kuyper had received a dog at 
large warning letter in March after Mischief bit a jogger. Because a prior warning letter 
had been issued I wrote minor misdemeanor citation 000240 to Kuyper for Dogs 
running at large (SCO: 505.01). I then returned to Kuyper's residence where he signed 
the citation, was given his copy, and instructed to contact the court to find when future 
proceedings in the case are. I then cleared from the call. 

A copy of a dog bite report form was forwarded to the Mahoning County Board of 
Health and I also left a message with the dog wardens office regarding the incident.

Charge: Theft from Elderly  29 13.02(A1)(A2)


Following Narritive by Ptl. Reed #507

On 05-05-2020 at 19:28 hours, Mary Mills, of 265 West Oregon Avenue, came on 
station to report that her son, Sean Mills, had removed money from her bank account 
and sent it to a Julie Withrow without her consent. Mary advised that it was for a total 
of $350.00 dollars, and that she had just noticed it at around 7:00pm. Mary said that 
she came to the police station immediately upon noticing this. Mary then provided me 
with a voluntary witness statement before leaving, as well as a phone number for me 
to contact Withrow.

In speaking to Withrow, she agreed to come to the station to discuss the matter. Once 
on station, I interviewed Withrow in the squad room. I informed Withrow that she was 
not under arrest. Sgt. Kelm was also present. Julie informed me that Sean began 
sending her messages via Facebook messenger, using his girlfriend, Katherin Cox's 
account, asking if he could upload money onto her GreenDot card account from his 
mother's bank account and have her withdraw it. Withrow said that she was told that 
Sean's mother was helping him with money and that she would give her $50.00 for 
doing it. Withrow also said that Sean had tried to transfer money to her the day before 
without first asking for her permission to do so.

Julie also allowed me to see the messenger conversation between her and Sean, with 
four monetary transactions taking place that day. Three were for $100.00 and one was 
for $50.00. I also noted several audio calls on the messenger application between her 
and Katherines accounts. Withrow allowed me to photograph these conversations. 
When I asked what her and Sean had spoken about during their phone conversations, 
Withrow said that he was rushing her to get the money. When asked if she was 
positive it was Sean that she was speaking to on the phone, Withrow said that she 
was. I also asked if she knew the difference between how Sean and his brother 
sounded on the phone. Withrow said that she did and she was sure it was Sean that 
she was speaking to.

Withrow said that after withdrawing the money from her GreenDot account at Sheetz in 
Alliance, she met with Sean in the alleyway behind his house and gave him the money. 
Withrow said that Sean was wearing a gray hoodie when she met with him. Withrow 
then provided me with a witness statement detailing the incident before leaving the 
police station.

After speaking with Withrow, Sgt. Kelm and I went to the Mills residence to speak with 
Sean. Upon making contact with Sean, he denied having ever taken money from his 
mother's bank account or having called or met with Withrow. It should be noted that 
Sean did have on a gray hoodie as had been described by Withrow. Sean however did 
say that his brother stole his girlfriend's phone, which is logged into her messenger. 
Sean and Katherine agreed to come to the police station to provide voluntary witness 
statements.

Once at the police station, both Sean and Katherine provided voluntary witness 
statements. In Sean's statement he reiterated that she did not take money from his 
mother's bank account, nor had he called or met with Withrow. In Katherine's 
statement she also denied that Sean was involved in taking money from his mothers 
account. Both Sean and Katherine said that they found massages between Katherines 
account and Withrow's discussing the money transactions.

On 05-06-2020, Eddie Mills and Mary came on station to report that it was actually 
Eddies account that the money had been withdrawn from. Eddie provided me with a 
voluntary witness statement and reiterated that he wanted to pursue charges in the 
matter. After speaking with Mary and Eddie, I called the Sebring Huntington Bank 
branch and spoke with representatives there regarding the matter. I was advised that 
Mary and Eddie have a joint checking account but two separate cards. The 
representative with Huntington advised that a total of $250.00 had been moved from 
the account to Withrow using Mary's card and $100.00 had been moved to Withrow 
using Eddie's card. Huntington said that the transactions are being disputed and did 
fax over copies of documents regarding the transactions. This matter will be forwarded 
to the prosecutor for review and consideration of charges.

Nothing additional to report at this time.

Charges:
Driving under suspension   ORC: 4510.11

License plate light required  SCO: 337.04


On 05-13-2020 at 21 :20 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 
301. While southbound on N. Johnson Road, I was stopped for a train when I realized 
that the vehicle in front of me, a dark green Chevrolet Colorado bearing Ohio 
registration HTG 5097, did not have a functioning license plate light. I also conducted a 
random registration check of the vehicle at this time. The vehicle was registered to a 
Brandon Lee Thorne, whose driver license was suspended. I then activated my 
overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop on the truck on Johnson Road 
across from Grand View Cemetery.

Upon making contact with the driver, identified as the registered owner by his Ohio 
Identification Card, I advised him of the reason for the stop. Mr. Thorne said that he 
was unaware that his license plate light was not working and that he had driving 
privileges. When asked where he was coming from and going to Mr. Thorne said that 
he was going to work from his girlfriend's house in Sebring. Mr. Thorne also said that 
he lives in
Salem.

Mr. Thorne did provide me with a paper from Columbiana County Municipal Court that 
listed his privileges as driving from his residence to his place of employment, as well 
as to and from court hearings, medical appointments, church functions, and shopping 
at Salem Wal-Mart between specific times. A subsequent LEADS check however did 
not show any active driving privileges.

Sgt. Kelm arrived on scene at around this time and I instructed Mr. Thorne to step out 
of his vehicle. Sebring Tire was requested for a tow and an admirative inventory was 
done of the vehicle with nothing of value and no contraband being located. Thornes 
truck was towed to Sebring Tire with no holds placed. I then provided a courtesy 
transport to Mr. Thorne to his girlfriend's residence in the 200 block of West Wisconsin 
Avenue. Thorne was issued citation #031881 for license plate light required (SCO 
337.04), and driving under suspension (ORC 4510.11). Thorne signed the citation, was 
given his copy, advised of his mandatory court appearance, and instructed to call the 
court for further information on court proceedings. Nothing additional to report at this 
time.

Following Narritive by Ptl. Reed #507

On 05-05-2020 at 19:28 hours, Mary Mills, of 265 West Oregon Avenue, came on 
station to report that her son, Sean Mills, had removed money from her bank account 
and sent it to a Julie Withrow without her consent. Mary advised that it was for a total 
of $350.00 dollars, and that she had just noticed it at around 7:00pm. Mary said that 
she came to the police station immediately upon noticing this. Mary then provided me 
with a voluntary witness statement before leaving, as well as a phone number for me 
to contact Withrow.

In speaking to Withrow, she agreed to come to the station to discuss the matter. Once 
on station, I interviewed Withrow in the squad room. I informed Withrow that she was 
not under arrest. Sgt. Kelm was also present. Julie informed me that Sean began 
sending her messages via Facebook messenger, using his girlfriend, Katherin Cox's 
account, asking if he could upload money onto her GreenDot card account from his 
mother's bank account and have her withdraw it. Withrow said that she was told that 
Sean's mother was helping him with money and that she would give her $50.00 for 
doing it. Withrow also said that Sean had tried to transfer money to her the day before 
without first asking for her permission to do so.

Julie also allowed me to see the messenger conversation between her and Sean, with 
four monetary transactions taking place that day. Three were for $100.00 and one was 
for $50.00. I also noted several audio calls on the messenger application between her 
and Katherines accounts. Withrow allowed me to photograph these conversations. 
When I asked what her and Sean had spoken about during their phone conversations, 
Withrow said that he was rushing her to get the money. When asked if she was 
positive it was Sean that she was speaking to on the phone, Withrow said that she 
was. I also asked if she knew the difference between how Sean and his brother 
sounded on the phone. Withrow said that she did and she was sure it was Sean that 
she was speaking to.

Withrow said that after withdrawing the money from her GreenDot account at Sheetz in 
Alliance, she met with Sean in the alleyway behind his house and gave him the money. 
Withrow said that Sean was wearing a gray hoodie when she met with him. Withrow 
then provided me with a witness statement detailing the incident before leaving the 
police station.

After speaking with Withrow, Sgt. Kelm and I went to the Mills residence to speak with 
Sean. Upon making contact with Sean, he denied having ever taken money from his 
mother's bank account or having called or met with Withrow. It should be noted that 
Sean did have on a gray hoodie as had been described by Withrow. Sean however did 
say that his brother stole his girlfriend's phone, which is logged into her messenger. 
Sean and Katherine agreed to come to the police station to provide voluntary witness 
statements.

Once at the police station, both Sean and Katherine provided voluntary witness 
statements. In Sean's statement he reiterated that she did not take money from his 
mother's bank account, nor had he called or met with Withrow. In Katherine's 
statement she also denied that Sean was involved in taking money from his mothers 
account. Both Sean and Katherine said that they found massages between Katherines 
account and Withrow's discussing the money transactions.

On 05-06-2020, Eddie Mills and Mary came on station to report that it was actually 
Eddies account that the money had been withdrawn from. Eddie provided me with a 
voluntary witness statement and reiterated that he wanted to pursue charges in the 
matter. After speaking with Mary and Eddie, I called the Sebring Huntington Bank 
branch and spoke with representatives there regarding the matter. I was advised that 
Mary and Eddie have a joint checking account but two separate cards. The 
representative with Huntington advised that a total of $250.00 had been moved from 
the account to Withrow using Mary's card and $100.00 had been moved to Withrow 
using Eddie's card. Huntington said that the transactions are being disputed and did 
fax over copies of documents regarding the transactions. This matter will be forwarded 
to the prosecutor for review and consideration of charges.

Nothing additional to report at this time.

CRIMINAL


ARREST:  PATRICK LEVELL  /  DOMESTIC VIOLENCE  2919.25 
426. E. VERMONT AVE. SEBRING, OHIO

ARREST:  Sherrie Simpson   /  DOMESTIC VIOLENCE  2919.25
426. E. VERMONT AVE. SEBRING, OHIO


Following Narrative by Ptl. Reed #507

On 05-10-2020 at 01:28 hours, I was dispatched to a domestic violence incident at 426 
East Vermont Avenue. 

Upon arrival I met the caller/complainant, Patrick R. Levelle, in the driveway to the 
residence near the road. Mr. Levelle was bleeding from a cut on his head and had the 
strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from his person. Mr. Levelle advised 
that his live-in girlfriend, Sherrie Simpson, had hit him with an incense burner causing 
the cut on his head. Levelle did say at this point that he wished to pursue charges in 
the matter. Levelle further advised that Simpson had fled on foot prior to officers arrival 
and that she was wearing a light colored top with blue jeans. This matched the 
description of a female subject who I had passed on East Virginia Avenue behind the 
high school while enroute to the call. I informed Ptl. Russell of this over the radio with 
her searching the area. Several minutes later dispatch advised that Simpson was at 
the police station.

In speaking further with Mr. Levelle, he advised that Simpson was intoxicated, taking 
Ativan in addition to drinking alcohol, and that she had attacked him without 
provocation. Levelle said that she also "tore the Hell out of his house".  Sebring 
FireIEMS arrived at this point with me then going inside the house with Mr. Levelle and 
the EMS squad. I did note that inside the kitchen was a skillet and food thrown on the 
floor around it. Levelle provided me with a broken incense burned that he said 
Simpson had struck him with. The incense burner had an ornamental dragon. The 
head to the dragon matched the wound on Levelle's head.

Levelle was then transported by Sebring Fire/EMS to Aultman Alliance Hospital for 
treatment. While Levelle was on his way to the hospital, I went to the police station to 
meet up with Ptl. Russell, who was speaking with Simpson. Upon arriving, I found Ptl. 
Russell and Smith Township Sergeant Davis speaking with Simpson in the back 
parking lot of the police station. The four of us then proceeded into the squad room 
where I spoke to Simpson regarding the matter. It should be noted that I advised 
Simpson that she was not under arrest but did read her Miranda prior to speaking with 
her. I could also smell the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from 
Simpson.

Simpson advised that she had been with Levelle throughout the evening at his 
daughters house as well as her friends house in Alliance. Levelle allegedly became 
upset regarding having been rejected membership by a motorcycle club, and began 
arguing with her. Simpson said that Levelle continued to berate her throughout the the 
time that they were with his daughter and during the drive home.

Simpson further advised that upon returning home Levelle "threw her around" but said 
"I don't know" when asked to elaborate. It should be noted that Simpsons lips were 
visibly swollen and had cuts on the insides of them and her hands and clothing had 
blood on them. It was also later noticed that she had an abrasions on her scalp and 
scratch on her neck. These injuries were photographed. When asked if she had struck 
Levelle with the incense burner she denied having done so.

After speaking with Simpson, I went to Aultman Alliance Community Hospital to speak 
with Levelle. Levelle said that the couple had been at his daughters house on Milton 
Street in Alliance before going home. Levelle also again said that Simpson had been 
drinking throughout the evening. Levelle went on to say that upon coming home, 
Simpson wanted to continue to drink, Levelle said that Simpson then attacked him 
without provocation and that he had never struck her back. 

When confronted with the injuries that Simpson had he said that he again said that he 
never hit her. Levelle also began saying that he did not want Simpson to get in trouble 
and that he did not want to pursue charges. I advised him that due to the severity of 
injuries between the two that the state would pick them up.

Upon being discharged from the Emergency Department (E.D.) I took Levelle into 
custody. While in the E.D. he was placed in handcuffs, which were properly spaced 
and double locked, as well as searched incident to arrest. He was then brought back to 
the police station for processing, with it later being discovered that he had a prior 
domestic violence convictions. Because of this he was charged with third degree 
felony Domestic Violence (ORC 2919.25A).

Simpson, who was also found to have prior domestic violence convictions was 
charged with third degree felony domestic violence as well. It did appear that both 
subjects were aggressors in the incident. when asked if there were firearms in the 
house, both subjects advised that there were not.

After processing, I transported Levelle to the county jail in car 301 with Ptl. Russell 
transporting Simpson in car 303. Due to the degree of offense both subjects will 
require bail to be set by a judge.

Domestic violence packets were gone over with both subjects. The incense burner 
was collected as evidence and secured in temporary evidence locker #1.  The injuries 
to both parties were also photographed as evidence. Nothing additional to report at 
this time.

Following Narrative by Ptl. Racheal Russell #510

On May 10,2020 myself and Ptl. Reed were dispatched to 426 E. Vermont Ave for a 
Domestic Violence complaint. 

Upon arrival I was met by Ptl. Reed who stated the female involved had took off on 
foot last known walking Westbound on E. Virginia Ave. Ptl. Reed stated he believes he 
passed her while responding to the call. I had then cleared the scene in attempts to 
locate her. I arrived in the area of E. Virginia and was then quickly notified by dispatch 
the female was in the back-parking lot of the Sebring Police department. I then left the 
area to respond to the Sebring Police department. Ptl. Reed remained on scene with 
the alleged victim.

Upon arriving at the Sebring Police department, I observed a female sitting on the 
ground that appeared to be sobbing speaking with Smith Township Sgt. Davis. I made 
contact with the female and Sgt. Davis. I identified the female as Ms. Sherrie Simpson. 
Ms. Simpson stated her and her boyfriend had got into an argument while visiting at 
his daughter's house in Alliance that turned into physical violence when they returned 
home. I was advised her boyfriend is Patrick Levell. Sherrie stated Patrick became 
verbally abusive because he had been drinking alcoholic beverages while they were 
visiting with his daughter by calling her a whore. Sherrie stated her boyfriend drinks a 
lot after work and verbally abuses her until it leads into physical violence. I was 
advised this happens often.

On the above date Sherrie stated when they returned home from Alliance, she 
attempted to make food in the skillet, but Patrick became angry and tossed it around 
the kitchen. I was advised that is when Patrick became physically violent with her by 
pushing on her until she fell to the floor. Sherrie stated Patrick started to choke her by 
putting his arm around her neck while she was on the floor but he did not hold her in 
this position for long. Sherrie stated Patrick hit her in the face several times but is 
unsure if it was with an open or closed hand. Sherrie stated she threatened to call the 
police but Patrick took her phone from her. I was advised when she was able to get 
away from him, she left to come to the police department. I observed Sherrie to have a 
swollen busted open lip, a mark on her left check, a small scratch on her neck, blood in 
her hair and all over her clothing and a scrap on her scalp. Sherrie stated the blood 
came from her nose and lip. Photographs were taken of Sherrie's
injuries.

I was then notified by Ptl. Reed that Patrick was being transferred to the Alliance 
community hospital ER due to a head injury. Patrick advised Ptl. Reed, Sherrie struck 
him in the head with an incense burner with a dragon on it. Ptl. Reed advised me the 
injury on his head matches the dragon on the incense burner. Ptl. Reed responded to 
the hospital with Patrick.

I asked Sherrie if at any time she hit Patrick with the incense burner because of the 
information I just ' received. Sherrie started to laugh and stated "I bet he does have an 
injury". Sherrie then stated "She does not believe she hit him at any time because she 
would not have had time due to him pushing her around. I asked what she did when 
was able to get up from the floor. I was advised she ran out the door to come to the 
Police department for help. I was further advised Patrick will cause harm to himself just 
to get her arrested.

I then checked for prior Domestics on Sherrie finding two with convictions and two 
assaults with convictions. There was no protection order in place between the two 
parties. I then advised Sherrie was being charged with Domestic Violence 2919.25 F3 
due to the injury to the head. 

While I was working on the booking process Ptl. Reed brought Patrick in booking. 
Sherrie became verbally aggressive knowing he was in the building. She, started to 
call him a mother fucker and called officer's bitches. Sherrie was then placed in 
handcuffs until she could calm down. Once Sherrie was calmed down I transported her 
to the Mahoning county jail.

Nothing further at this time.

Traffic  @  600 Block of West Ohio Avenue

CITED: Christopher Hawkins , 44, 580 Santa Monica Dr. Youngstown, OH

Charge: Obedience to traffic control devices  SCO: 313.01


On 05-08-2020 at 20:42 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 
301. While sitting stationary at the intersection of West Ohio Avenue and North 
Johnson Road, I observed a red Chevrolet S 10 travel through the flashing four way 
stop at the intersection, slowing down to approximately 10 MPH before proceeding 
through. I then activated my overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop.

The S10, bearing Ohio registration HHA 5954, came to a stop in the 600 block of West 
Ohio Avenue. I then made contact with the driver, a Christopher L. Hawkins. In 
speaking to Mr. Hawkins, he advised that he had just bought the truck, that he was 
driving it home, and that the brakes were "a little spongey". Hawkins provided me with 
his driver license but advised that he did not yet have insurance on the vehicle and 
that he had not registered it yet. Hawkins advised that the plates that were on the 
vehicle belonged to his 1997 S10, that was red as well. Hawkins did have the title to 
the vehicle.

I then returned to my patrol car and after determining that Hawkins had a valid driver 
license and no outstanding warrants for his arrest, wrote him citation 031880 for 
obedience to traffic control devices, Sebring Codified Ordnance 313.01. Because Mr. 
Hawkins admitted to not having insurance on the vehicle, he was given a mandatory 
court appearance. Hawkins then signed the citation, received his copy, and was 
advised to contact Mahoning County Court #3 regarding further proceedings in the 
case. 

Hawkins was given a verbal warning for operating an unsafe vehicle and advised to 
call for a tow truck to get the vehicle home, which he did. I then cleared from the stop 
with nothing additional to report at this time.

Case No.: 20005011 

Criminal
400 block South 15th Street

CITED: Kendra Cundiff (AGE 20)
703 Keplinger Ave. Alliance, OH 44601

CHARGES:
License Plate Light Required  SCO: 337.04

Possession of Marijuana Paraphernalia   SCO 513.12


On 05-03-2020, at 00:13 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 
301. While southbound in the 400 block of South 15th Street, I observed that the 
vehicle in front of me did not have an operable license plate light. I then activated my 
overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop. Upon approaching the silver 
Impala, bearing Ohio registration HNB 6274, I could smell the strong odor of burnt 
marijuana emanating from inside of the vehicle.

In making contact with the driver, Kendra Cundiff, I requested her driver license, 
vehicle registration, as well as proof of insurance. Cundiff was only able to provide me 
with an expired insurance card but did give me her name and date of birth. Dyllon 
Dewell was the front seat passenger with Olivia and Ariel Gillman in the back of the 
vehicle. All three gave me there identifying information. When I asked where the 
marijuana that I was smelling was, Dyllon admitted that there was a blunt in the car, 
with him retrieving it from the back-seat area and handing it to me.

Ptl. Russell then arrived on scene and all four occupants were requested out of the 
vehicle with a probable cause search being conducted. In searching the driver area, 
directly underneath the seat, I located a glass pipe with remnants of a burnt, green, 
vegetative substance inside. This substance did smell strongly of marijuana. Once 
finished searching the vehicle, I asked who the marijuana pipe belonged to. Cundiff 
admitted that it belonged to her. No other contraband was located during the search. 
When I asked Cundiff if she had smoked marijuana recently, she said that she had not. 
I also did not observe or smell any indicators on Cundiff to indicate that she had.

All four subjects were allowed back inside the vehicle, with me returning to my patrol 
car to write citations. I also determined that none of the occupants had any active 
warrants and that Cundiff did have a valid driver license. 

Cundiff was cited for Sebring Codified Ordnance: 337.04 (license plate light required), 
and Sebring Codified Ordnance 513.121 (marijuana paraphernalia). Cundiff was 
issued minor misdemeanor citation #000307 and uniform traffic citation #031879. 
Cundiff signed both and was given her copy of each. Due to the current Covid-19 
pandemic, although I did require Cudiff to personally appear before the court, I listed 
"To Be set" on each of her citations. I also explained to Cundiff that she would need to 
contact the court for information on further proceedings in the case. 

I then cleared from the stop. The confiscated marijuana blunt and glass pipe were 
secured in temporary evidence locker #1. 

Nothing additional to report at this time.

Following Narrative by Ptl. Peterman #511  4/25/2020


On arrival, I spoke with the victim, Matthew Thurman, who states "Bryan Tewksbury 
came up to me and smashed me in the back of the head with a flashlight".  Matthew 
had a small hoodie pressed against his head, and when I asked him to lift the hoodie 
up, observed a large amount of blood on the back of Matthews head, and a large 
contusion on the upper left portion of his head that was still bleeding. I advised 
Matthew to keep applying pressure until medics could arrive to treat his injury. I 
advised dispatch that Matthew was in need of medical attention from Sebring FD.  
Dispatched relayed information to Sebring FD, and had medics dispatched to 246 E. 
Ohio Ave.

Ptl. VanVoorhis #513 arrived at this time to assist me as I relayed information from 
several witnesses who saw Bryan Tewksbury running from the scene of the crime 
shirtless, and wearing khaki shorts and a pair of sneakers. Witnesses also report 
Tewksbury running up to two individuals, one being a female walking with a baby 
stroller, then running off east toward his residence on the 300 East block of Indiana. 
Ptl. Marchionda #505 radioed to dispatch at this time he had Bryan Tewksbury held at 
gun point at his residence, 336 E. Indiana Ave. I asked Matthew if he wished to press 
charges against Bryan Tewksbury and he responded "Fuck yeah I would".  Sebring FD 
arrived on scene at this time to treat Mathew of his injuries. 

Myself and Ptl. VanVoorhis left the victims residence to assist Ptl. Marchionda #505. 
Smith Township PD Ptl. Caughey #377, and Smith township PD Ptl. Toussant #380 
arrived with myself and Ptl. VanVoorhis #513 at the residence and saw Bryan 
Tewksburys father, Chris Tewksbury, approaching Ptl. Marchionda #505 in a 
threatening manner asking "what the fuck are you doing to my son". I approached 
Chris and advised him to move away from the area to which he responded "I'm calling 
my lawyer; you have no right to do this".  Ptl. Marchionda #505 had Bryan detained in 
handcuffs at this time, and was seen bleeding heavily from a deep laceration to his 
right hand. I again advised Chris he needed to get away from the area, and he backed 
to the end of their driveway. Ptl. Marchionda #505 requested me to provide aid to 
Bryan. I retrieved my first aid bag from my patrol vehicle, and obtained a roll of thick 
gauze, and properly applied it to Bryans right hand.

After applying first aid treatment, Sebring FD arrived on scene to provide further 
medical care and transport. I spoke with Ptl. Marchionda #505 who advised me to 
obtain witness statements and collect evidence at the crime scene. I advised dispatch I 
was clear from Bryans residence, and was enroute to the previous address. I arrived 
back at 246 E. Ohio Ave. and spoke to another resident there, Budd Kuyper, who 
states "Bryan came to the front door and knocked. As I answered the door, I noticed 
Bryan was acting erratically as none of his statements were making any sense.".  Budd 
also states "I let him inside, and he kept asking where Matthew was, and I saw his 
hand was all bloody".  Budd states "I heard a loud thud, and came outside to see him 
(Bryan Tewksbury) on top of Matthew, punching and yelling at him".

After speaking to Budd, I requested he provide me with a written statement. Budd 
agreed, and I finished collecting evidence for processing. Bryan was pink slipped due 
to his erratic behaviors and injuries and transported to Aultman Alliance, and Matthew 
was also transported to Alliance Aultman Hospital for his injuries. Ptl. Marchionda #505 
followed medics to Aultman Alliance Hospital to retrieve as witness statement from 
Matthew, then cleared back to Sebring. All parties cleared the scene without further 
incident.

This report will be forwarded to the prosecutor for approval on the charge of Felonious 
Assault 2903.11 (A)(2).

Ptl. Peterman #511  4/25/2020



Following Narrative by Patrolman Zachery Van Voorhis Unit #513

On April 25,2020 at 1642 hours I was dispatched to 226 E Ohio Ave for an assault in 
progress between two males. Upon arrival I observed Patrolman Peterman's cruiser 
out front of the house. I asked him via radio where he was and he said outback. Once I 
got to the back yard I observed Matthew Thurman bleeding from his head standing on 
a wheelchair ramp. Matthew was standing with Budd Kuyper and speaking to 
Patrolman Peterman. Patrolman Peterman pointed out a flashlight that was used as a 
weapon to strike Mr. Thurman in the head. He explained he got photos already and I 
could collect it for evidence. Mr. Thurman advised both units that Brian Tewksbury was 
the one who attacked him.

Before collecting, I spoke to Mr. Kuyper about the incident asking where it took 
placeat. The place the fight happened was in the back yard by an entry door to the 
basement. There were droplets of blood surrounding the door, a bloody palm print on 
the metal ramp and blood on the flashlight on the ground. I then put gloves on and 
proceeded to collect the evidence, and radioed to Patrolman Marchionda to look for 
our suspect last seen East on Ohio since Patrolman Peterman and myself had the first 
scene secure.

Medics arrived at 226 East Ohio to treat Mr. Thurman. About 10 minutes later 
Patrolman Marchionda called over the radio that he had found the suspect at his 
residence and the suspect ran inside the house. The next transpission from Patrolman 
Marchionda was that he had the suspect Brian Tewksbury at gunpoint and he needed 
assistance. Both Patrolman Peterman and myself responded to the residence along 
with Smith Township officers to assist. Once on scene I observed Mr. Tewksbury on his 
knees facing Patrolman Marchionda with his hands behind his lower back. Mr. 
Tewksbury was bleeding from his hand with blood behind him on the front porch and 
all over his body and clothes. Mr. Tewksbury said, "He said that to my girl, what would 
you do?" referring to the incident. He said multiple times the same statement, "He said 
that to my girl, what would you do?".

While Patrolman Marchionda covered the suspect, I went over and picked him up to be 
cuffed as he was having trouble understanding commands from Patrolman 
Marchionda. Mr. Tewksbury appeared to be muttering random words and sentences. 
He also could not keep his focus while he was being talked to. He was also unstable 
on his feet without being held up. He was detained in cuffs for the time being. 

Patrolman Peterman wrapped his hand with gauze while medics arrived.

Once the squad arrived, he was taken out of cuffs and pink slipped to the hospital to 
be evaluated.  Patrolman Marchionda followed the squad to the hospital and while 
there I asked him for a statement from the victim Mr. Thurman. Patrolman Peterman 
and myself then went back and began looking for witness' and taking statements. Due 
to the location of the fight no one could see much detail and it appeared no one, other 
than the two involved, know who swung first. 

Patrolman Zachery Van Voorhis Unit #513




Following Narrative by Ptl. Marchionda #505

While responding to a report of a fight at 246 E Ohio Ave, I observed Patrolmen 
Peterman and VanVoorhis already on scene. Radio traffic indicated our suspect to be 
Brian Tewksbury and that he had fled east on E Ohio Ave on foot after striking another 
male in the head with a flashlight.

Patrolman VanVoorhis requested for me to canvas the surrounding area for Tewksbury.

While searching the immediate area, radio traffic indicated Tewksbury was last seen 
walking with two females. Smith Township Patrolman Caughey flagged me down on N 
12th St near E. Maryland Ave and advised he observed two females on foot near N 
13th St and E Indiana Ave. 

Having previously dealt with Tewksbury in the past and knowing his residence to be 
336 E Indiana Ave., I proceeded to that address.

As I neared the aforementioned address, I observed a shirtless male quickly run into 
the of the residence. Simultaneously, radio traffic indicated Tewksbury fled the scene 
shirtless. As I approached the residence, I observed several droplets of fresh blood in 
the driveway and on the front porch. I realized the shirtless male I observed rushing 
into the house was Tewksbury and began,to knock on the front door while shouting his 
name.

I observed even more blood near the front door and due to the door being unlocked, 
my knocking caused it to open slightly. Believing Tewksbury was inside the residence, 
possibly injured and may be in possession of some type of weapon, I kicked the door 
open and remained on the front porch.  With my duty weapon unholstered and at the 
low ready, I gave loud commands for Tewksbury to exit the residence.

Tewksbury appeared still shirtless with blood covering his arms and torso with his right 
hand not visible. I ordered Tewksbury out of the residence at gunpoint onto the front 
porch. Tewksbury was acting erratically and speaking incoherently but responded to 
my commands to exit the house, place his hands behind his back and get on his 
knees. I updated dispatch of the situation and broadcasted one male at gunpoint. This 
radio traffic prompted response from Patrolmen Peterman and VanVoorhis as well as 
mutual aid response from Smith Township.

As backup was arriving on scene, Tewksbury's father from the neighboring residence 
began to quickly move up behind me. While maintaining cover on Tewksbury with my 
duty weapon, I unholstered by taser and ordered Tewksbury's father to back up. After 
seeing the father comply, I turned my attention back to Tewksbury as officers were 
arriving onto the front porch. Smith Township Patrolmen Caughey and Toussant 
arrived on scene as Patrolmen Peterman and VanVoorhis were assisting me with 
Tewksbury.

Observing a serious injury to Tewksbury's right hand, I instructed Patrolman Peterman 
to retrieve his medical kit from his cruiser and tend to Tewksbury's injury, which was 
bleeding profusely.

Tewksbury was detained using handcuffs behind his back while continuing to act 
erratic and speaking incoherently. Patrolman Peterman wrapped Tewksbury's injury 
with fresh sterile gauze as Sebring EMS personnel began to arrive on scene.

Tewksbury was escorted to Medic-2 and handcuffs removed. After consulting with 
Sebring Fire Chief Springer, the decision to pink slip Tewksbury was made. Patrolmen 
Peterman and VanVoorhis cleared the scene and proceeded back to the original 
location of the call to obtain statements. Smith Township Patrolmen Caughey and 
Toussant cleared at this time as well. I followed Medic-2 as they transported 
Tewksbury to Aultman Alliance Community Hospital.

Upon arrival at Aultman Alliance, I was informed by Patrolman VanVoorhis over the 
radio the victim had already been transported a statement was needed. After ensuring 
Tewksbury was escorted into IS0 in the emergency department without incident, I 
established contact with the victim, identified as Matthew Thurman. Thurman allowed 
me to take photographs of his blood-stained clothes and injury. Thurman provided a 
brief voluntary written statement advising Tewksbury struck him in the back of the head 
with a flashlight.

After photographs were taken and a statement obtained, I returned to the village to 
assist Patrolman Peterman, who was still at the original location of the call. Patrolman 
Peterman advised he secured the flashlight as well as a bloodied hoodie used by the 
victim. I returned to the station and obtained a CCH for Brian Tewksbury from dispatch. 
A request for the following charges will be forwarded to the prosecutor's office for 
review: ORC 2903.11 (A)(2) Felonious Assault, a felony of the second degree and 
ORC 3701.352 Violations Prohibited, a misdemeanor of the second degree.

On Monday, April 27, 2020, warrants for Brian Tewksbury were issued by Mahoning 
County Court #3. Patrolman Brindack and I found Tewksbury standing in the driveway 
of his residence on E Indiana Ave and took him into custody. Tewksbury was 
handcuffed behind his back (gapped/double locked), informed of his Miranda Rights 
(which he invoked) and transported to the Sebring Police Department. 

Upon arrival, Tewksbury was escorted into the audio/video recorded squad room and 
the handcuffs were temporarily removed.

Tewksbury was provided copies of his warrants, photographed and DNA sample 
obtained by Sergeant Kelm. Tewksbury stated he could not read and was read the 
warrants. After processing was complete, Tewksbury was handcuffed behind his back 
(gapped/double locked) and subsequently transported to the Mahoning County Justice

45329 County Road 23, Coshocton, OH 43812

Telecommunications Harassment  ORC 2917.21(A)(1)  /   BOND $1,250.00


Upon arrival at 536 E Vermont Ave, I established contact with the complainant, 
Hannah Reed. Reed stated she and her former boyfriend, Christian Tuel, had recently 
started talking to one another. Reed admitted during casual conversation she sent 
provocative media of herself to Tuel and the conversation took a turn she became 
uncomfortable with. Reed provided her iPhone and allowed me to view the message 
threat spanning back to sometime on Wednesday, March 11,2020.

I observed the snapchat text conversation and found Tuel's messages to be degrading 
and controlling towards Reed. Several messages from Tuel contained cruel remarks 
and some contained demands for Reed to send pictures of her tits to Tuel. Reed's 
responded and told Tuel no and several of the messages telling Tuel to stop and leave 
her alone but Tuel continued to message her back, swearing and saying degrading 
things to her. 

I had Reed screenshot the entire conversation and send them to me department e-
mail address. Printouts of the conversation will be placed in the case file.

I provided Reed with a voluntary statement packet, explained how to fill it out and the 
consequences for falsification. While writing her statement, Tuel messaged her on 
snapchat. With Reed's permission, I took her iPhone and called Tuel using the 
snapchat call feature. Tuel answered the phone and it seemed as if he was pretending 
to not hear me when I spoke. After getting Reed to speak, Tuel acknowledged her 
voice and then I took over. I identified myself as a patrolman with the Sebring Police 
Department and gave Tuel lawful commands to leave Reed alone, to stop calling and 
messaging her, and to delete her contact information from his phone. Tuel stated "Yes 
Sir" and hung
up the phone.

Before leaving the residence, I informed Reed should Tuel contact her again in the 
near future by any means, to screenshot the messages and call logs and phone the 
station or contact me directly through my department email. Reed did previously state 
the provocative media she sent, Tuel threatened to share with other people. If Tuel 
follows through with this alleged threat, enforcement action will be taken.

OVI  4511.19A1A  /   BOND $500.00

Assured Clear Distance   4511.21A



At 2253 hours, on March 19, 2020, 1 responded to an accident report involving a 
Sebring Police car at the intersection of N. Johnson Rd, and route 62. 

Upon arrival, I found that Sgt. Kelm and Ptl. Vanvoorhis had been sitting facing 
southbound in car 302 on N. Johnson Rd at the intersection with route 62 when they 
were struck by another southbound vehicle. Upon exiting my patrol car I was advised 
by Sgt. Kelm that no one was injured.

I then approached the grey Ford Focus, bearing Ohio registration HVK3172, and made 
contact with the male driver, later identified as Eric W. Hamon. In speaking with Mr. 
Hamon, I asked what had happened this evening, with him stating that he was just 
trying to go to Perkins Restaurant but that they were closed and then the accident 
occurred. Hamon said that he had been at home on Michigan Avenue prior to this. I 
noticed that Mr. Hamon's eyes were glassy, his movement was very delayed, his 
speech was slurred, and he seemed to have difficulty comprehending what I was 
saying to him, as was evident by his delayed responses. I also noted the odor of an 
alcoholic beverage emanating from inside the vehicle. When I asked Mr. Hamon if he 
had been drinking at all, he advised that he had not.

Because of my observations indicating that Mr. Hamon was possibly under the 
influence of drugs, alcohol, or both, I requested that he step out of the vehicle. Once 
out of the vehicle, I asked him to accompany me back toward my patrol car. While we 
were walking between our cars, I noticed that he was very unsteady on his feet. With 
Mr. Hamon's consent, Pt. VanVoorhis conducted a search of his person, locating a 
prescription pill bottle containing 0.5mg Clonazapam that had Hamons name on it. I 
also again asked Hamon If he had consumed any alcohol, with him saying that he had 
not. 

I then turned off the headlights as well as front facing lightbar of my patrol car. At this 
point, I asked Mr. Hamon if he would submit to field sobriety tests to determine if he 
were okay to drive, with him agreeing to do so.

I began the tests first with the horizontal gaze nystagmus test (HGN). I asked Mr. 
Hamon if he were taking any other prescription medications, with him saying just Paxil 
and Prozac and that he had taken them in the morning. Hamon also said that the last 
time that he had taken any of the Clonazepam was about six hours before. Hamon 
said that he had no issues with his eyes nor did he wear corrective lenses. I began the 
HGN test by instructing Hamon to place his feet together and arms at his side. I told 
him to follow my fingertip with his eyes, his eyes only, and not to move his head. After 
giving him these instructions, I asked if he understood, with him saying that he did. 
Using my flashlight in a downward angle for illumination, I held my fingertip 
approximately 12 inches from Hamon's face. I noticed no resting nystagmus. In going 
further with the test, I did however note lack of smooth pursuit, onset of nystagmus 
prior to 45 degrees, as well as distinct and sustained nystagmus at maximum 
deviation. I noted no vertical gaze nystagmus. These clues were observed in both 
eyes.

Next, I began the walk and turn test. Instructed Hamon to place his right foot in front of 
his left foot, keep his arms at his side, and not to begin until I told him to do so. After 
demonstrating the test to him I asked Hamon if he understood, with him saying that he 
did. Hamon was then advised to begin the test. While Hamon was performing the test, 
I noticed that he did not touch heel to toe, and stepped off the line. Hamon also did not 
turn around but instead began to walk backwards.

After completing the walk and turn test, we began the one-leg stand test. I instructed 
Mr. Hamon to stand with his arms at his side, and to raise the foot of his choice 
approximately six inches off the ground and count in a one-thousand one, one-
thousand two, one-thousand three pattern until told to stop. Mr. Hamon said that he 
understood and began the test. Mr. Hamon swayed while attempting to balance and 
put his foot down approximately five seconds into the test.

At the conclusion of the tests, I asked him if he were sure that he had not consumed 
any alcohol. Hamon then changed his story and said that he had drank 3 hard ciders 
at about 10:00pm. Ptl. Stanton arrived at around this time with a portable breath tester 
(PBT) that I had requested. I asked Mr. Hamon if he were willing to blow into it, with 
him agreeing to do so. Mr. Hamon then blew into the device; however, he did not fully 
close his lips around the straw. The PBT showed a reading of 0.67.

Due to Mr. Hamon's performance on the SFST's being present with the odor of 
alcohol, I placed him under arrest for suspicion of OVI. I then placed him in handcuffs, 
which were properly spaced and double locked, before placing him in the back of car 
303. Hamon was then brought back to The Sebring Police Station where I read him his 
Miranda rights, which he said that he understood. Harmon agreed to speak with me 
regarding the matter. I asked him if the physician who prescribed him his Clonazepam 
had informed him that he should not mix it with alcohol, with him saying that he had.

Harmon was then photographed, fingerprinted and processed. I also read the Ohio 
BMV 2255 form to him and instructed him that he was being placed under and 
administrative license suspension until told otherwise by the courts. Hamon agreed to 
provide a breath sample with his blood alcohol level showing as 0.154 g1210L. The 
breath sample was collected by Sgt. Kelm. When asked for a urine sample, Hamon 
said he tried but was unable to produce any urine. 

He was then given citation number 031878 for Operating a vehicle under the Influence 
(ORC 4511.19A1A) as well as assured clear distance for striking the patrol car (ORC 
4511.21A). After signing the citation, he was given his copy before being released on a 
$500.00 own recognizance bond. Hamon was instructed to contact the court tomorrow 
to determine when his court date would be seeing as the courts are closed due to the 
Coronavirus pandemic. Nothing additional to report at this time.

OVI (>. 17)    4511.19A1h

Speed   4511.21


On 3/17/2020 At 17:15 pm while on patrol in a marked police cruiser was traveling 
North on South 12th Street, when I observed a vehicle coming from the opposite 
direction traveling at a high rate of speed that appeared to be that greater then that of 
the posted speed limit of 35 mph. The vehicle was visually estimated at going 60 mph, 
and was rapidly accelerating. The vehicles engine was still roaring as it passed me in 
the 300 block of South 12th Street. I then made a three point turn around and 
attempted to stop the vehicle.

I activated my emergency overhead lights and audible siren and initiated a traffic stop 
on US 62 at 12th Street. The vehicle was a Black 2000 Chevy pick up truck bearing 
Ohio registration HOP7431. I exited my cruiser and approached the vehicle on the 
driver side and made contact with the driver later identified as Victor David Vickers II. I 
informed Victor of the reason I had stopped him and requested his driver's license, 
registration, and proof of insurance. Victor pulled out multiple pieces of paper and 
attempted to hand me them before finding his driver's license. Victor was unable to find 
his registration but was able to locate proof of insurance. Victor advised me he was on 
his way home from work.

I could detect an odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the vehicle. I asked Victor 
if he had consumed any alcoholic beverages prior to operating his motor vehicle and 
Victor said yes, I asked Victor when he consumed the alcoholic beverages and he said 
at home he had one and he was just coming back from the bar in Sebring.

I notified dispatch that the traffic stop was a possible OVI and Ptl. Reed arrived on the 
scene to assist. I asked Victor of he would take SFST (Standardized Field Sobriety 
Test's), Victor said he would. I turned off the front portion of my light bar and had Victor 
exit his vehicle. I had Victor stand straight up with his hands to his side and his feet 
together and I asked if he had any medical conditions, fainted recently, or had a head 
injury or have been hospitalized recently to which Victor stated he did not have 
anything that would prevent him from completing the tests.

I then checked Victor's eyes for a resting nystagmus, equal pupil size, and equal 
tracking. Victor did not have a resting nystagmus, both of Victor's pupils were of equal 
size, and both of Victor's eyes tracked equally. The first test was the Horizontal Gaze 
Nystagmus after explaining the instructions I asked Victor if he understood and he said 
he understood. Once the test began, I observed the following clues: Lack of smooth 
pursuit in both eyes,.Distinct nystagmus at maximum deviation in both eyes, and 
Onset nystagmus prior to 45 degrees in both eyes.

The next test was the Walk and Turn, I had Victor stand straight up with his hands to 
his side and his right foot in front of his left foot and told him to stay in that position until 
instructed otherwise. I performed the test to demonstrate it, Once I told Victor the 
instructions, I asked him if he understood and Victor said that he did understand. Clues 
that I observed were Could not keep balance and starting to soon. Victor walked the 
line but did not do it heel to toe. Victor used his hands to help keep his balance.

The test was the One-Leg-Stand, I had Victor stand straight up with his hands to his 
side. I preformed the test to demonstrate it, Once I told Victor the instructions, I asked 
him if he understood and Victor sad that he did understand. Clues observed, hoping on 
one foot, using hands as balance, improper counting, skipped numbers, stopped 
during the test, and finally Victor grabbed the side of the truck to maintain balance.

Victor was placed in custody for suspicion of OVI and placed in hand restraints and 
read his rights ( before being placed in the rear of marked unit #304. Ptl. Reed 
Secured victor and searched her person revealing a baggie of marijuana. I preformed 
a vehicle inventory of the vehicle and located several tools and beer cans. The one 
beer can was still cold and was half way full. Springer's Towing arrived and towed the 
vehicle to 10 N. 12TH St.

I transported Victor back to the police department where I performed a 20-minute 
observation period and while doing so I read a BMV 2255 form to Victor with Ptl. Reed, 
witnessing it. Victor signed the BMV 2255 form and once the observation period was 
complete I operated the lntoxilyzer 8000 and obtained a breath sample from Victor 
which the results were BrAC 0.266 gl210L. A urine sample was also obtained and will 
be sent to the Ohio State Highway Patrol Crime lab for both an alcohol analysis and 
drug analysis.

I informed Victor that he was now under administrative license suspension and was not 
to operate any motor vehicle and I confiscated his driver's license. Victor was issued a 
traffic citation for OVI (SFST) ORC 4511.19A1A, OVI (>.17) ORC 4511.19A1 H, and 
Speed ORC 4511.21. 

Victor was cited into Mahoning County Court #3 personal appearance required on 
04/23/2020 at 9:00am.

ARREST REPORT
Case No.: 20003095

CRIMINAL (MM)
N 14th St near E Michigan Ave, Sebring, OH

Last Gary Baddeley (AGE 35)
436 N 13th St, Sebring, OH 44672

Disorderly Conduct    SCO 509.03(a)(2)


Dispatch advised caller stated a white vehicle was travelling north on N 14th St from 
the high school and the male driver was actively striking the female passenger. I 
arrived on N 14th St north of E Michigan Ave and found the vehicle stopped in the 
northbound lane unoccupied. 

Upon exiting my cruiser, I observed a white male running towards me with a white 
female running behind him from E Vermont Ave.

I unholstered my X26P Taser and instructed the male to show me his hands and place 
them on the hood of my car while I ordered the female to stop, raise her hands and get 
down on her knees (she stated she was pregnant at this time). Patrolman Brindack 
arrived on foot from the high school and secured the male, placing him in the backseat 
of my cruiser. After ensuring the female had no weapons on her person, I retrieved her 
information and identified her as Laurie Fryman. Fryman stated she was the 
passenger in the vehicle and had video on her smartphone of a dispute between her 
and her boyfriend, later identified as Gary Baddeley. Chief Harris arrived on scene at 
this time to assist.

Fryman stated she was picked up from the library on W Ohio Ave by Baddeley and as 
the two were in the car, Baddeley began to berate her, cuss at her and ridicule her. 
Fryman stated while they were on N 14th St, Baddeley unbuckled her seat belt and 
began to brake check violently in an attempt to slam her into the dash and windshield. 
Fryman showed me the 42 second video on her smartphone. In the video, Fryman can 
be heard screaming "What are you doing?" as Baddeley is shouting back at her "why 
aren't you wearing your seatbelt?". Fryman is seen moving back and forth, consistent 
with Baddeley braking the vehicle.

During the video, Baddeley can be heard yelling for Fryman to get out of her car and 
near the end can be heard screaming, "GET OUT OF THE CAR NOW, I HATE YOU, I 
CANT FUCKING STAND YOU! YOURE FUCKING NASTY, YOU'RE FUCKING UGLY, 
YOU FUCKING PlSSED YOURSELF, GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY CAR NOW!' At 
the point the video ends, Fryman states this is where Baddeley got out of the car and 
began throwing her belongings into a ditch on N 14th St near E Michigan Ave. Fryman 
stated while Baddeley was doing this, she reached into the car, turned the ignition off 
and ran with the keys. Fryman stated she threw Baddeley's keys into a bush around 
the
corner on E Vermont Ave.

Fryman stated Baddeley never struck her during the altercation. After speaking with 
Fryman, I spoke with Baddeley, who was secured in the back seat of my cruiser still. 
Baddeley's story was consistent with Fryman's except he denies unbuckling her seat 
belt and denies purposely brake checking to harm her. While speaking to Baddeley, 
Patrolman Brindack requested EMS be dispatched to the scene at the request of 
Fryman to be evaluated by medics. Sebring Fire Medic-1 arrived on scene and 
subsequently cleared with a refusal.

Baddeley and Fryman currently have no children together and the child Fryman is 
currently carrying may or may not be Baddeley's. Contact was made with Baddeley's 
roommate and it was learned Fryman does not reside with Baddeley on N 13th st, that 
she only stays there and actually lives in West Salem. Baddeley's roommate declared 
over speaker phone Fryman does not live there and does not want her back at the 
residence. 

Baddeley was taken out of handcuffs and instructed to remain sitting in the back of my 
cruiser with the door open while I generated a minor misdemeanor citation.

Baddeley was issued minor misdemeanor citation #000481 for SCO 509,03(a)(2) 
Disorderly Conduct and informed of his mandatory appearance before Mahoning 
County Court #3 on Thursday, March 26, 2020 at 0900. Baddeley stated he wanted to 
pursue theft charges against Fryman for taking his keys out of the ignition, running 
away and throwing them into a bush. Since Baddeley was successful in retrieving his 
keys, I informed him to come to the station at a later time to provide a written 
statement and the report would be forwarded to the prosecutor's office to determine if 
enough evidence existed for a theft charge to be filed. Baddeley was released from the 
scene at this time.

Fryman's belongings were retrieved from the ditch on N 14th St and placed in the trunk 
of my cruiser. I provided Fryman with a courtesy transport to the station where she was 
advised she could wait until a family member or friend could pick her up. While on 
station, I asked Fryman if she would consent to the video being downloaded from her 
phone onto a department computer.

Fryman consented to my request and was provided with a permission to search form. 
The form was explained to her and a signature was subsequently obtained. The 42 
second video of the altercation was downloaded from Fryman's smartphone onto a 
department computer. 

Following receipt of the video, Fryman was escorted back to the lobby to wait for a 
ride. Chief Harris later informed me after a discussion with the prosecutor, Fryman's 
actions did not rise to the appropriate level for a theft charge to be considered.

Sean advised he was upstairs at his apartment talking to his girlfriend when his 
roommate Kieth LeMasters came into the room and started hitting him. Sean had 
visible scratches and a bruise on his face. 

After acquiring a sworn statement from Sean we then responded to 836 S. 13th St. 
Apt. 4 to speak with Kieth and Sean's girlfriend Kathrine Cox. Kathrine advised her and 
Sean had a verbal argument and were talking in their room when Kieth came in and 
started hitting Sean.

Myself and Ptl. Redfern then spoke to Yieth who advised he pushed Sean out the door 
but "nothing physical happened". It should also be noted that the entire time officers 
were at the above apartment Kieth was talking to himself and it was very hard to follow 
what he was speaking about. Kieth repeatedly mentioned that his ex-girlfriend was 
upstairs, although she was not anywhere in the apartment. Kieth also kept rambling on 
about there being access tunnels in the apartment building.

Due to the physical evidence of assault as well as a witness statement from Katherine

1100 block N. Johnson Rd. Sebring, OH

CITED: Michael Candella (AGE 26)
67 Oakwood Dr. Beloit, OH

Driving Under Suspension (Forfeiture)  SCO: 335.07

License Plate Light Required    SCO: 337.04


At 23:43 hours, on March 7,2020, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked unit 
304. While sitting stationary at the intersection of N. Johnson Road and W. Ohio 
Avenue, I observed a red Ford Ranger approach the intersection from the west on 
Ohio Avenue, before turning left and proceeding northbound on Johnson Road. As the 
vehicle drove past me, I noticed that its exhaust was loud and the rear license plate 
light was not functioning.

I then positioned my patrol car behind it, activated my overhead emergency lights, and 
initiated a traffic stop on the red Ranger, bearing Ohio registration HJU 4149. 

Upon approaching the male driver, who was the vehicles sole occupant, I requested 
his driver license, vehicle registration, as well as proof of insurance. The driver handed 
me an Ohio driver license that identified him as Michael V. Candella, but was unable to 
produce the other requested documents, with him advising that the truck belonged to 
his girlfriend and he was unsure where she kept them.

Upon returning to my patrol car, I relayed Candella's information to dispatch, with it 
being advised that his license was suspended and that the vehicle was registered to a 
Kaylyn Arkwright. 

Ptl. Scott arrived to my location at around this time and the two of us again 
approached the vehicle, with me advising Candella of his suspended license and 
asking him to step out of the truck. Upon stepping out of the truck, I performed a pat 
down of Candellas person before taking him back and having him sit in the back of car 
304. 

An administrative inventory of the vehicle was then conducted, with no contraband 
being located. Upon returning to my patrol car I wrote Candella citation # 031877 for 
SCO: 335.07 (driving under suspension) and SCO: 337.04 (license plate light 
required). When asked how soon the vehicles registered owner, who had a valid driver 
license, could get there, Candella advised within a few minutes. I then decided that in 
lieu of towing the vehicle, I would allow a valid driver to come pick up it. 

At around this time, an emergency call came in and Ptl. Scott cleared from the scene, 
with me remaining on the stop.

Due to Arkwright not arriving in a timely manner and the ongoing emergency call that 
Ptl. Scott was on, I issued Cordella his citation after he signed for it and was advised of 
his mandatory court appearance at Mahoning County Court #3 on Thursday, March 
12,2020 at 9:00am. After giving Cordella his copy of the citation I instructed him not to 
drive and to wait on his girlfriend to get there. I then cleared to assist Ptl. Scott.

Nothing additional to report at this time.

CITED: Kevin George (AGE 39)
166 E. Oregon Ave. Sebring, OH

Speed (51/35)   333.03


At 15:40 hours, on February 27,2020, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked 
unit 303 with Ptl. Villanueva. While patrolling northbound in the 800 block of N. 12th 
Street, I observed a black jeep traveling southbound in the 900 block, at a speed that 
appeared to be visibly higher than that of the 35MPH posted limit. 

Upon activating my front facing radar unit, I obtained a locked speed of 51MPH. I then 
activated my overhead emergency lights, turned my patrol car around, and initiated a 
traffic stop on the black jeep, bearing Ohio registration HQB 7837, in the 600 block of 
N. 12th.

Upon making contact with the driver, I informed him of the reason for the stop as well 
as asked for his driver license, proof of insurance, as well as vehicle registration. The 
driver produced all three requested documents, with his Ohio driver license identifying 
him as Kevin B. George. In speaking further with Mr. George, I asked him if he were 
aware of his speed, with him maintaining that his digital speedometer said 42 MPH 
and that he did not believe that he was going over that. I asked Mr. George if he would 
like to see the digital readout on my radar unit at the conclusion of the stop, with him 
advising that he would.

I then returned to my patrol car and wrote citation #031876 to Mr. George for SCO 
333.03 Speed: Over Limits (51/35). Mr. George then signed the citation, was made 
aware of his right to appear at Mahoning County Court #3 at 9:00am on Thursday, 
March 5,2020, to contest the ticket, and received his copy of the citation.

 When I asked if he were still interested in seeing the digital readout of my radar unit, 
Mr. George said no, he thought I said he was going 61, and that he believed that he 
may have been going the speed that he was being cited for. I then cleared from the 
stop. 

It should be noted that the calibration to car 303's in car radar unit was checked at both 
the start of my shift at 15:00 hours, as well as after issuing Mr. George his citation. 
Nothing additional to report at this time.

On Friday, February 21, 2020, I, Patrolman Marchionda, was patrolling west on W 
Ohio Ave within the , 600 block in marked unit #304. I observed a dark blue Ford SUV 
heading east without a front plate and when the vehicle passed me.  I performed a 
registration check through dispatch of the rear plate (HUR8111). Dispatch advised the 
vehicle's registration expired on February 5,2020 and the registered owner, Quentin 
Thomas, was suspended. After turning east onto W Ohio Ave from N 20th St, I 
activated my overhead emergency lights, audible siren and continued east to locate 
the vehicle.

I observed the dark blue Ford SUV pull off to the side of the road in front of Sebring 
Quick Lube as I neared and pulled up behind it to effect the traffic stop. Upon 
establishing contact with the driver, identified as Quentin Thomas, I identified myself 
and informed him of the reasons for the stop. While speaking to Thomas, dispatch 
advised Thomas had a protection order against him out of Stark County with an 
'Armed & Dangerous' caution. I could also smell a faint odor of marijuana coming from 
within the vehicle.

I instructed Thomas to exit the vehicle and place his hands against the car so I could 
perform a pat down of his outer garments for weapons. 

Following the pat down, I placed Thomas in the back seat of marked unit #304. I 
informed Thomas he was being secured in the back seat for the following reasons: the 
'Armed & Dangerous' caution on his protection order and because of the odor of 
marijuana which provided probable cause for a vehicle search. I notified dispatch to 
summon a tow truck to the scene to remove the vehicle from the roadway and 
informed Thomas to phone a ride to pick him up.

An administrative inventory and probable cause vehicle search was conducted. 
Nothing of significant value was found during the inventory and the probable cause 
vehicle search yielded no contraband or weapons.

Thomas was issued traffic citation #03 1866 for SCO 335.07 Driving Under 
Suspension and SCO 335.10 Expired License Plates. Thomas was informed of his 
mandatory appearance before Mahoning County Court #3 on Thursday, February 27,

On arrival, Ptl. Scott #505, Ptl. Brindack #506, and myself observed two dogs running 
southbound along the west side of N. Johnson. As the dogs approached us, we 
positioned our vehicles so as to prevent oncoming traffic from striking the dogs, while 
attempting to catch them and place into our patrol vehicles. Both dogs appeared 
friendly, and one female dog approached us and was placed into my cruiser. Both dogs 
had dog tags that showed the owners address.

let us approach his as he continuously sprinted away from us. The male dog ran down 
N. Johnson into a field where officers were unable to locate the dog as it ran too far 
back into the wooded area near Smith Township police Department.

The owner of the dogs, Andrew Weingart showed up and stated he was the dogs 
owners. Andrew was given back the female dog that was caught by officers, but was 
told the male ran into the woods. I advised the owner I was unable to see the dog, but 
attempted to trace the foot tracks left behind. I cleared the area, and was shortly 
notified soon after that the male dog was seen in the 300 W. Block of Virginia running 
eastbound. I arrived a short time later and identified the dog at the 100 W. Block of

CITED: Chad Apple (AGE 27)
21342 Lake Park Blvd. Alliance, OH 44601

Speed (48/25)          SCO: 333.01


At 19:30 hours, on February 13,2020, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked 
unit 304. While sitting stationary along the side of W. California Avenue in front of 
Salem Republic Rubber, I observed a light-colored sedan turn off of Johnson Road and 
start eastbound on W. California Avenue, at a visibly high rate of speed.

Upon activating my front facing radar antenna, I obtained locked speed of 48 MPH in 
the clearly marked 25 MPH zone. The vehicle then pulled into the driveway at 571 W. 
California Avenue.

With my lightbar activated. I pulled in behind the white Honda Civic, bearing Ohio 
registration HVK 2937.

Upon making contact with the driver, I asked for his driver license, vehicle registration, 
and proof of insurance. The driver was able to produce all three requested documents, 
with his Ohio Driver License identifying him as Chad W. Apple. When I asked if he was 
aware of his speed, he said that he was not but stated "they were spinning", this being 
in reference I believe to the vehicle's tires. I then instructed Mr. Apple to remain in his 
vehicle, with me returning to my patrol car to write him his citation.

Upon returning to my patrol car, I wrote citation # 031550 to Mr. Apple for SCO 333.03 
Speed: Over Limits (48/25). Mr. Apple then signed his citation, was given his copy, as 
well as made aware of his mandatory court appearance at Mahoning County Court #3 
at 9:00am on Thursday, February 20,2020. 

In speaking further with Mr. Apple, although he said that he was unaware of his speed, 
he did state "if this car was all-wheel drive, you would probably have had me at closer 
to 60MPH". After issuing Mr. Apple his citation, I cleared from the stop.

It should also be noted that the calibration to car 304's in-car radar unit was checked at 
both the start of my shift at 15:00 hours as well as after issuing Mr. Apple his citation. 
Nothing additional to report at this time.

232 South 15th Street, Sebring Ohio 44672

Theft            2913.02   /   BOND $1,250.00


On 02/12/2020, I was dispatched to Circle K in reference to a theft. I arrived on 
location and spoke to Brice Wervey whom advised that she observed a male walk to 
the beer section and place two Edge Ice House cans in his pockets. Brice advised that 
she watched him then walk out. Patty Caliguire arrived on location whom is a manager 
at the store. She allowed me to see the video recordings.

There was no footage of the incident, due to the positioning of the cameras. I was able 
to see the male walk in the door and I was able to identify the male as Thomas Bailey 
of South 15th Street, due to a recent case of unauthorized use of a credit card at Circle 
K. 

I then cleared and went to the Bailey residence. As I pulled up I was able to see the a 
male back in the garage. I went back and spoke to the male whom I was able to 
identify as Thomas Bailey. I asked Thomas if he was just at Circle K and he advised 
that he was. I then asked Thomas if may have taken something that was back in the 
beer cooler without paying for it. Thomas advised that he didn't get anything. I then 
advised Thomas that I observed him on the camera take something and he advised 
that he did ... I asked Thomas where they were and Thomas took me into his mothers 
house and took me to his bedroom. Thomas lifted the mattress and pulled out the two 
Edge Icehouse cans that were still cold. 

I asked Thomas why he took them and he advised that he didn't know why. I then 
placed Thomas in custody for theft. 

I requested assistance from Smith Twp. for transporting Thomas back to station. 
Thomas was placed in handcuffs that were gapped and double locked. Smith Twp. 
arrived and transported Thomas back to station. Once back at station it was 
discovered that Thomas' wrists were bleeding. Thomas advised that he had a pre-
existing scab on his wrists that came open with the cuffs. I offered Thomas EMS and 
he denied the request. Thomas was processed and given a court date for 02/13/2020 
at 0900. 

Management from Circle K came to station and signed a Notice of Restriction on 
Thomas. Thomas was given a Recognizance bond in the amount of $1,250. Thomas 
was advised that he needed to be at court in the morning. I also served Thomas with 
his Notice of Restriction and advised him that he is unable to go back to the 
establishment anymore or he would be charged. Thomas advised that he understood. 
Thomas was then released.


The beer was placed into evidence.

Narrative by Ptl. Reed #513

At 00:48 hours, On February 9, 2020, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked 
unit 301.  While sitting stationary at the corner of Johnson Road and West Ohio 
Avenue, I observed a white Chrysler PT Cruiser that was traveling eastbound on W. 
Ohio Avenue, travel through the flashing four-way stop at the intersection without 
coming to a complete stop. 

Upon seeing this, I positioned my patrol car behind the vehicle, also noting that the 
rear license plate light was not functioning. I then activated my overhead emergency 
lights and initiated a traffic stop, with the vehicle coming to a stop in the 400 block of 
W. Ohio Avenue. I also at this point noticed that there were no letters or numbers on 
the Ohio temporary tag that was attached to the vehicle.

Upon making contact with the driver, I advised her of the reason for the stop as well as 
asked for her driver license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. The driver 
handed me the requested documents, with her Ohio driver license identifying her as 
Destinee F. Cowens. In speaking with Cowens, she advised that the temporary tag on 
her vehicle had been damaged by recent weather. I also noticed the strong odor of 
burnt marijuana emanating from inside of the vehicle. When asked if there was any 
marijuana or anything else in the vehicle that I needed to be concerned with, both 
Destinee as well as the front seat male passenger and backseat female passenger 
advised that there was not. I then asked both passengers if they would mind giving me 
their ID'S with the male passenger presenting an Ohio driver license identifying him as 
Tyler Nichols and the female's identifying her as Jasmine M. Hill.

I then returned to my patrol car and relayed the information of all of the vehicles 
occupants to dispatch. Neither party returned with any warrants and Destinee did have 
a valid driver license.

Due to the odor of burnt marijuana being present I also requested Ptl. Scott to my 
location, due to him being ARlDE (Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement) 
certified. Once Ptl. Scott arrived to my location, the two of us again approached the 
vehicle, with him speaking to Cowen at the driver side and me standing behind the 
front passenger side window. When advised that we would be performing a search of 
the vehicle due to the odor of marijuana being present, Cowen reached in the glove 
box and handed a prescription pill bottle to Ptl. Scott, which had what appeared to be 
roughly a gram of marijuana inside of it. 

All three occupants were then requested out of the vehicle. In speaking with Cowen, 
Ptl. Scott asked her when she had last smoked marijuana, with her replying sometime 
around 10:00pm. At around this time Cowen also removed the bottle of marijuana from 
Ptl. Scotts hands, opened it, and then dumped it out onto the road without being 
instructed to do so.

I then began a probable cause search of the vehicle while Ptl. Scott remained with the 
occupants on the sidewalk. During my search I located 16 burnt marijuana cigarettes 
in the center console as well as a pack of rolling papers. I then returned to my patrol 
car and wrote Minor Misdemeanor citation #000302 to Cowen for Sebring Codified 
Ordnance 513.121 for possessing marijuana paraphernalia in the form of the rolling 
papers as well as for Sebring Codified Ordnance 513.03 for possessing the marijuana. 
In addition to these charges I also issued uniform traffic citation # 031549 to Cowen for 
traffic control devices (SCO: 313.01), and License Plate Light Required (SCO: 337.04). 

Cowen as advised of her mandatory court appearance at 9:00am on Thursday, 
February 13,2020, at Mahoning County Court #3. Cowen then signed her citations and 
received her copies. Both Ptl. Scott and I then cleared with nothing additional to report 
at this time. The 16 marijuana cigarettes as well as rolling papers were placed in 
temporary evidence locker #1.

Following Narrative by Ptl. Villanueva #512

On 01/23/2020, I, Ptl. Villanueva was dispatched to speak with a complainant on 
station in reference to a stolen guitar. Upon arrival I made contact with Anthony 
Stancato who stated that his cousin, Logan Stancato, gave him counterfeit money to 
purchase his guitar. Anthony stated Logan arrived at his place of work on 15 1/2 N. 
Johnson road asking if he could use his gas can. They talked for a period of time and 
asked if he could purchase the guitar Anthony was selling. Logan and his girlfriend 
Antonia Harper then followed Anthony to his home at 145 W. Virginia Ave.

Anthony states he puts the guitar in it's case and hands it to Logan. Logan gives 
Anthony $60.00 folded up and then leaves. Anthony then returned to his car and 
realized the money was fake and also noticed Logan had a wallet full of possible 
counterfeit money. I ran Logan through dispatch and was made aware that he had two 
active warrants through Mahoning County and Summit County. I took a statement from 
Anthony and took the counterfeit money into evidence and placed in locker number 1.

Before leaving he informed me a relative told him he was possibly at 115 E. Indiana 
Ave. I notified Ptl. Marchionda and Ptl. Scott of his location and they went to the 
residence but had negative contact.

After a considerable amount of time, I overheard Ptl. Marchionda over the radio while 
in dispatch calling out emergency traffic only. Soon after, dispatch informed me 
Goshen Township Det. McBride, had Logan detained in reference to the two warrants 
he had out of Summit and Mahoning county. 

I asked dispatch of their location and got into marked unit 304 to assist. Upon arrival I 
made contact with Ptl. Marchionda and asked if there was any more counterfeit money 
found in Logan's wallet. Ptl. Marchionda informed me that while being detained by 
Goshen PD, no counterfeit money was observed.

While inside the residence, myself and Ptl. Marchionda noticed an acoustic guitar 
leaning in the living room. Logan was then escorted and placed in the back of Goshen 
TWP PD's marked cruiser by Det. McBride. Myself and Ptl. Marchionda walked back 
into the residence to speak to Andrew Herbert and his brother Conner Herbert and see 
if they knew where Logan got the guitar. They both stated they had no idea where 
Logan got the guitar and he just brought it there today. They said how he has a second 
guitar in a case in the bedroom. The brothers then stated Logan just asked if they 
could let him store them there until he finds an apartment.

After two phone calls to Chief Harris and Chief McDaniel, Det. McBride had a Andrew 
sign a consent to search so they could locate the guitar. 

While I waited outside, Anthony Stancato arrived and stated he was requested to 
confirm if it was his guitar. Ptl. Marchionda comes out of the residence and asked 
Anthony for a description on the guitar. Anthony states it's in a black case with silver 
trim and the guitar is brown in color and is a Cordoba Blue. The description was a 
positive match to the guitar found by Ptl. Scott and Det. McBride. The guitar and guitar 
case was then taken into evidence by Det. McBride and he advised us that he will be 
charging Logan with Receiving Stolen Property. 

All Sebring officers cleared the scene and returned to station with no further incidents.

Charges will be sent to Prosecutor Tolson for approval of ORC 2913.02 (A)(3) Theft by

Following Narrative by Ptl. Marchionda #507

On Thursday, January 23,2020, Ptl. Villanueva spoke to a complainant on station 
reference his guitar being bought by his cousin with fake money. According to Ptl. 
Villanueva, the complainant, Anthony Stancato, stated his cousin, Logan Stancato, 
bought a guitar from him using 3 fake $20 bills labeled 'prop copy' and matching serial: 
numbers. It was brought to our attention by dispatch that Logan had two active 
warrants out of Mahoning County and Summit County. Ptl. Villanueva informed Ptl. 
Scott and I that Logan may be at 115 E lndiana Ave according to information received 
by a relative.

Ptl. Scott and I departed from the station in marked unit #301 and proceeded to the 
aforementioned address in an attempt to locate Logan. Upon arrival, a vehicle 
containing three occupants was observed backing out of the driveway. The driver 
identified herself as Logan's grandmother and stated Logan was no longer at the 
residence at 115 E lndiana Ave. Shortly thereafter, dispatch requested all Sebring units 
phone the station for information. Dispatch advised over the phone information had 
come in that Logan was with his girlfriend at Dollar General in Beloit in a black Jeep 
Patriot last seen heading towards Sebring.

Ptl. Scott and I located a black Jeep Patriot parked at Circle K with a female in the 
drivers seat. The woman who had previously stated she was Logan's grandmother, 
stated the female in the driver's seat is Logan's girlfriend. 

Ptl. Scott and I approached the vehicle and observed the female driver to be upset. 
The driver opened the door and we asked her if she was okay and what her name 
was. The female identified herself as Antonia. We asked if she knew where Logan was 
and she stated she was supposed to meet him at Dollar General in Beloit but he never 
showed.

I asked Antonia if she knew where Logan might be and she stated he had friends that 
lived near the Dollar General. Earlier in the shift, Ptl. Villanueva and I assisted Goshen 
TWP Police reference a female crying in a car at 112 Redwood in Sebring Estates. 
Two brothers, identified as Conner and Andrew Herbert, reside at 11 2 Redwood drive 
and had previously mentioned their friend and his girlfriend (known to them only as 
"Nia") had been at the residence to help them move some stuff. Acting on the 
possibility that "Nia" is Antonia, I asked her about Logan's friends and she stated she 
only knew they were brothers.

Utilizing this information, Ptl. Scott and I met with Goshen TWP Police Detective 
McBride in the parking lot of Mahoning County Court #3. Detective McBride was 
brought up to speed regarding the case and the primary person of interest having 
active warrants. We departed from MCC#3 and proceeded to 112 Redwood in Sebring 
Estates. Upon arrival, Ptl. Scott knocked on the front door several times and shouted 
"POLICE." Conner Herbert came to the door and Ptl. Scott asked him if Logan was in 
the residence.

Conner stated Logan was in the residence, in a back room with his brother Andrew. 
Conner appeared to be on edge and afraid but gave us consent to enter the residence 
to look for Logan.

Upon entering the residence, Detective McBride took lead while Ptl. Scott followed and 
I remained in the first room with Conner. Shortly after I observed Det. McBride and Ptl. 
Scott enter the back room; Andrew came down the hall and I instructed him to sit down 
next to his brother. Andrew also appeared to be on edge and nervous. I then 
overheard Det. McBride shouting and walked into the backroom where I observed Det. 
McBride and Ptl. Scott ordering someone out from under the bed.

This person (Logan) later emerged and was detained by Det. McBride reference the 
active the warrants entered in LEADS. I informed Logan although he was detained by 
Goshen Police, we needed to ask him some questions regarding an investigation. I 
informed Logan of his Miranda Rights, asked if he understood them and if he was 
willing to waive them to speak to us. Logan stated he understood his rights, 
immediately invoked his rights and demanded to speak with his attorney.

Logan was escorted from the back room into the first room of the residence.

Ptl. Villanueva arrived on scene and advised she was there to check Logan's wallet for 
more prop money. I informed Ptl. Villanueva in the course of Logan being detained by 
Det. McBride, no prop money was observed inside of Logan's wallet. After being 
detained, Logan grew concerned regarding a care source card and asked us to make 
sure it was in his wallet. It was during this moment no prop money was observed in his 
wallet. 

During the course of normal conversation with Logan, I observed a guitar sitting in the 
first room of the residence and asked Logan about it. Logan blew the guitar off as junk 
and that another one he had was a gift. Logan asked the Herbert brothers to hold onto 
his property and mentioned another guitar in a case in the backroom.

Logan was escorted to Det. McBride's marked cruiser and placed in the back seat 
while Boardman dispatch verified the warrants. After two phone conversations with 
Sebring Chief Harris and Goshen Chief McDaniel, Det. McBride produced a consent to 
search to Andrew asking permission to search the back room for the guitar case 
containing the guitar that was bought with the prop money. Andrew Herbert signed the 
consent to search and allowed us to search the back room.

Upon entering the back room, we observed a black hard case with silver trim. At this 
time, I was informed the original complainant, Anthony Stancato was outside the 
residence.

I went outside to speak with Anthony and asked if he could identify the case the guitar 
was in. Anthony stated the case was a hard case, black in color. I asked Anthony what 
the color of the trim was and he stated the color of the trim was silver. I asked Anthony 
what brand guitar was in the case and he stated the guitar brand was Cordoba. I went 
back into the residence and informed Det. McBride and Ptl. Scott that Anthony had 
positively identified the case and the Cordoba Guitar was found inside. It was also 
mentioned the guitar in question was missing some strings. The Cordoba Guitar found 
in the case described by Anthony was in fact missing strings.

Det. McBride seized the case and the guitar as evidence. Det. McBride advised he 
would be charging Logan for receiving stolen property. All Sebring officers cleared the 
scene and returned to the station. 

This report will be submitted to the prosecutor's office by Ptl. Villanueva for approval of

On Thursday, February 6, 2020, I was phoned by Patrolman Redfern that Logan 
Stancato was in custody of the Mahoning County Sheriffs Office at Mahoning County 
Court #3, needed to be picked up and processed. I arrived at Mahoning County Court 
#3 and took custody of Logan from the Sheriffs Office and transported him back to 
station. While en route to the station, I did not ask Logan any questions but Logan 
stated if this was about the guitar, he claims his cousin gave it to him.

Upon arrival at the SEBRING POLICE STORY, Logan was escorted into the 
audio/video recorded squad room and served with his copies of the warrants 
(2020CRA45 & 2020CRB46). Logan was also informed of his Miranda Rights which he

House. The vehicle was a Black 2015 Chevy Camaro bearing Ohio registration HRV 
1296. At this point, I then exited my cruiser and approached the driver side and 
informed the driver of the reason for the stop and requested their driver's license, 
registration, and proof of insurance in which I received none of the requested items. 
The driver was later identified as Chris Guildoo who is a valid driver.

I then issued a citation to Chris for not having his drivers license on his person 335.01 
(ORD) and also for the loud exhaust 331.36 (ORD) and I gave him a court date of 
02/06/19 at 9:00am for MCC#3 with a personal appearance required. Once Chris 
signed the citation, I provided him with a copy and I then cleared the scene without 
further incident.

ARREST REPORT    1/30/2020   @   1708 hrs
Case No.: 20001162 

Traffic

CITED: Gerald Edinger (AGE 52)
531 W. Texas Ave Sebring, OH 44672


Speed (37/25)    333.03

Driving Under Suspension     335.07

Fictitious Plates    335.1



At 17:08 hours, on January 30,2020, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked 
unit 303. While sitting stationary along W. Texas Avenue in front of the F.A. Sebring 
Community Center, I observed a Silver Impala approaching from behind me, at a rate 
of speed that appeared to be higher than that of the 25 MPH posted limit. 

Upon activating my rear facing radar antenna, I obtained a locked speed of 37 MPH. 
Once the vehicle passed me, I positioned my patrol car behind it and activated my 
overhead emergency lights. The Silver Impala, bearing Ohio registration SWF 1679, 
continued on several hundred yards before pulling into the driveway at 531 W. Texas 
Avenue. Once in the driveway, the driver of the vehicle, who was the only occupant, 
stepped out and began approaching my patrol car. I advised the subject to stay put, 
and met him halfway between my patrol car and the Silver Impala. I then advised him 
of the reason for the stop as well as asked for his driver license. The subject advised 
me that his license was suspended but did identify himself by name, date of birth, and 
social security number as Gerald Edinger, with this information being relayed to 
dispatch.

I was then advised by dispatch that the plates that were on the Impala returned to a 
trailer that was registered to a Brian Moore. Mr. Edinger heard my radio traffic and 
admitted that they did belong on a trailer that was in his driveway. Dispatch also 
confirmed that Edinger's driver license was in fact suspended. I instructed Mr. Edinger 
to have a seat in his vehicle and that I would be with him shortly with his citation. Mr. 
Edinger was given citation No. 031548 for Sebring Codified Ordnance 333.03 (speed 
37 in a 25), Sebring Codified Ordnance 335.07 (driving under suspension), and 
Sebring codified ordnance 335.10 (fictitious plates). 

While writing Mr. Edinger his citation, he again approached my patrol car, this time with 
a registration form for the Impala with his name on it. I then relayed the vehicle 
identification number that was on the form to dispatch, with it being advised that the 
cars registered owner was a Judith Evans from Alliance, Ohio. I then asked Edinger if 
he had insurance on the vehicle, with him advising that he did not.

Edinger then signed his citation, was advised of his mandatory court appearance at 
9:00am on February 6,2020, and was given his copy of the citation. I then performed a 
consent search on the vehicle with no contraband being located. Edinger did remove 
the plates from the Impala while I was there and returned them to the trailer that they 
belonged on. 

Due to Edinger's vehicle being in his driveway I decided to exercise discretion and not 
impound it. It should be noted that the calibration to the in-car radar unit in car 303 was 
checked at both the start of my shift at 15:00 as well as after issuing Edinger his 
citation. Nothing additional to report at this time.

Sgt. Kelm #503   1/24/2020


Upon arrival Ptl. Peterman was speaking to the complainant Samantha Cathey, 376 W. 
Virginia Ave. Samantha advised she confronted her boyfriend Donald Handy (Dale) 
about using drugs. Samantha advised Dale got angry, grabbed her and held her 
against the wall. Samantha then advised Dale threw her to the side which made her 
fall on her ankle and twist it. Samantha then advised when she tried to get up and use 
her phone he grabbed her again and held her to the floor and choked her.

Samantha then advised she grabbed him and pulled on his crotch which made him let 
go. Samantha then advised Dale tried to take her phone but she bit him and he let go. 
Samantha then advised she left and went to her mothers, 647 W. Ohio Ave.

While Ptl. Peterman ensured the Domestic Violence packet was filled out I contacted 
Ptl. Everhart to respond to Samantha's residence to attempt to contact Dale. Ptl. 
Everhart advised there were lights on, Dale's vehicle was in the driveway, but no one 
answered the door.

Photographs of Samantha's injuries were taken and will be placed in the case file.

A warrant will be sent to the court for Dale for Domestic Violence 2919.25 / M-1 as well

Sgt. Kelm #503 1/24/2020



On 1/24/2020 at 2235 I, Patrolman Peterman, responded to 647 W. Ohio for a 
domestic dispute.

On arrival I was greeted by the victim's mother, who walked me into their kitchen 
where the victim, Samantha Cathey was. Samantha was sitting on a chair, in obvious 
emotional distress from what looked like a traumatic event. I asked Samantha if she 
would be able to tell me what happened.

Samantha stated "I was at the basketball game when I noticed my child's father, Dale 
Handy texting someone to get some(drugs). When I asked him about it, he became 
violent with me, and when we went to the house (376 W. Virginia) Dale put his arms 
around me, and forced me to the ground."

I physically observed several scrapes and scratches that seemed to match the way the 
victim was describing to me. There were scratches on her chest, right shoulder, and 
two scratches on her back. I asked Samantha if she needed medical to come check 
her out, and she refused medical treatment. Samantha also stated to me she would 
like to pursue charges against Dale Handy. 

I obtained a witness statement from Samantha, and Sgt. Kelm #503 requested for Ptl. 
Everhart #514 to go to the residence of 376 W. Virginia to speak with Dale. Ptl. 
Everhart informed both officers that Dales vehicle was at the location, but Dale was not 
answering the door.

I then obtained photographs of Samantha's injuries, then gave Samantha a copy of the 
instructions for filing for a protection order, and victims rights. Both officers instructed 
both parents and Samantha to not be in any contact with Dale, and to call police if he 
shows up on their property.

After ensuring no further questions for either officer, both units cleared without further 
incident.

CITED: Andrew Adams (AGE 22)
836 S. 13th St. Apt. #16 Sebring, OH44672 

Weaving within lane 331.34 (B) 


On 01/27/2020 at 7:51pm, I Ptl. Everhart while in a marked police cruiser was traveling 
West on Texas  Ave. when I observed a vehicle also traveling West on the same road 
swerve towards the other lane and also drove over the white edge line several times 
just past the intersection of S. 15th St. 

The vehicle then continued going West and I then positioned myself behind the vehicle 
and initiated a  traffic stop. The vehicle then stopped on Texas just past the 
intersection of lSh St. The vehicle was a  Black 2004 Jeep Cherokee bearing Ohio 
registration HWU9038. At this point, I then exited my cruiser and approached the 
driver side and informed the driver of the reason for the stop and requested their 
driver's license, registration, and proof of insurance in which I just received a valid 
license only. The driver was later identified as Andrew Adams. 

I then asked Andrew if there was anything illegal in the car and he advised me that 
there was nothing in the vehicle. I then asked Andrew if I could perform a consent 
search and he stated that he would not allow me to perform one. 

There were also 3 additional passengers in the vehicle. The front seat passenger was 
later identified as Noah McCammon. I then looked in the backseat and I was visually 
able to identify both passengers later identified as Jeramey Norton and Dylan Holmes. 
Both individuals had active warrants through other agencies. 

At this point, I then went back to my cruiser to start writing the citation. I then advised 
dispatch to have  K-9 Officer Redfern come to the scene to have K-9 Ollie perform a 
sniff of the vehicle. Ptl. Redfern then arrived to the scene shortly after and we had all 4 
individuals step out of the vehicle. I then informed all of them that I was going to 
perform a Terry Pat-DownBrisk for officer safety. Dylan then began to act suspicious 
and started to yell at me stating, that I was not allowed to pat him down. After talking to 
Dylan for several minutes he finally complied and allowed me to pat him down. 

Ptl. Redfern then advised me that the dog indeed had a positive hit on the vehicle for 
drugs where Dylan was sitting in the vehicle. At this point, all the individuals were 
detained while Ptl. Redfern performed the probable cause search. After searching the 
vehicle, no contraband was found in the vehicle and I then allowed Andrew and Noah 
to sit back in the vehicle. I then had dispatch contact Stark County Sherriff s to see if 
they wanted Dylan picked up and they advised that they were unable to pick him up. I 
then allowed Dylan to go back to the vehicle. 

At this point, I then had dispatch contact Hubbard City Police to see if they wanted to 
pick up Jeramey on his warrant and they advised that they did want to pick him up at a 
certain location. (See case number 20001144 for further information on that Warrant 
pickup). 

I then issued the citation to Andrew for Weaving Within Lane 331.34 (B) (ORD) and 
gave him a court date of 01/30/20 at 9:00am for MCC#3 with a personal appearance 
required. Once Andrew signed the citation, I provided him with a copy and I then 
cleared the scene without further incident.

traveling east on E. Ohio Ave. and preformed a random registration check on a vehicle 
traveling in the same direction in front of me. The vehicle was a white 2003 Hyundai 
four door sedan bearing Ohio registration GSF5851. While waiting for the return I 
observed through the vehicle's rear-view mirrors the driver's face and was able to tell 
that the driver was a male.

Dispatch advised me the driver was a male and that his driving status was suspended 
and that there was a confiscation order on the registered owner's driver's license and 
the vehicle license plates. The vehicle then turned north on N. 14thSt. I activated my 
emergency over head lights and initiated a traffic stop on N. 14 St.  and E. Ohio Ave.

I made contact with the driver and informed him the vehicle was stopped due to the 
registered owner being suspended and a confiscation order for the vehicle's license 
plates and that he was believed to be the registered owner. I asked the driver for his 
license, registration, and proof of insurance which I received and confirmed that he 
was the registered owner David Gonzalez who was suspended.

I wrote David a traffic citation for driving under suspension SCO 335.07 and gave 
David a court date of 01/23/2020 at 9:00am with a personal appearance required for

the grey Pontiac G6 in front of me did not have a functioning license plate light. I then 
activated my overhead emergency lights and initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle, 
which bore Ohio registration HWC 2026. The vehicle came to a complete stop on N. 
15th, just south of the intersection with Indiana Ave.

Upon approaching the vehicle and making contact with the driver, identified as Richard 
Gaver, I asked for his driver license, vehicle registration, as well as proof of insurance. 
Mr. Gaver was unable to produce any of these documents, and advised that his driver 
license was under suspension and that he did not have driving privileges.

After confirming this with dispatch, I returned to my patrol car and wrote Mr. Gaver 
citation #031547. Mr. Gaver was cited for Sebring Codified Ordnance 335.07 for 
driving under suspension as well as Sebring Codified Ordnance 337.04 for license 
plate light required. Mr. Gaver was advised of his mandatory court appearance at

signed the citation and was given his copy before leaving.

me, I noticed that it's license plate light was not functioning. I then pulled out and 
positioned myself behind the vehicle, which then turned left onto 15th street before 
turning right onto E. Pennsylvania Avenue. I then activated my overhead emergency 
lights and initiated at traffic stop in the 100 block of E. Pennsylvania Avenue, on the 
green sunfire, bearing Ohio registration HVK 3007.

Upon making contact with the driver, identified as Kristina Tyson, I asked for her driver 
license, vehicle registration, as well as proof of insurance. At this point, Tyson handed 
me the vehicle registration and advised that her driver license was under suspension. I 
asked if she had driving privileges with her replying that she did not. 

I then returned to my patrol car and wrote Tyson citation #031546. Tyson was cited for 
Sebring codified ordnance 335.07 for driving under suspension as well as Sebring 
codified ordnance 337.04 for license plate light required. She was advised of her 
mandatory court date on Thursday, January 23,2019 at 9:00am at Mahoning County

Tyson then signed the citation, was given her copy, and left with her father.

Sebring Tire arrived and towed the vehicle to their impound lot. No hold was placed on 
the vehicle which is registered to Tyson's mother, Jeanette Pinkerton. 

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

Following Narrative by Ptl. Scott #505

While a dual unit on patrol in a marked police cruiser I Ptl. Scott and Ptl. Brindack was 
on S. 12th St. near US RT 62 and observed a Silver 2016 Dodge van bearing Ohio 
registration HDR9936 fail to activate a turn signal before turning west on US RT 62. I 
continued patrol behind the vehicle and the vehicle went off of the right side of the road 
multiple times. 

Due to the vehicles pattern of driving I attempted to initiated a traffic stop on the 
vehicle on US RT 62 and S. 15th St. I could see through the back windshield 
movement as the vehicle continued to slow down but continued west on 62 and finally 
came to a complete stop. I could still see movement inside the vehicle.

Ptl. Brindack and I approached the vehicle, I approached the driver side and Ptl. 
Brindack approached the passenger side. I made contact with the driver and informed 
him of the reason of the stop and requested his driver's license but the driver stated 
that he did not have it on him, I then asked the driver for his name, date of birth, and 
social security number which he gave me the name of Darryan L. Mcknight. I could 
see one front passenger identified as Sara Dobrunick who was the registered owner 
and one back seat passenger who was putting his hands in his pockets and in the seat 
next to him and under his seat. I ordered him to put his hands on the ceiling of the 
vehicle. 

The driver then took his hands off of the steering wheel and moved his hands towards 
the center console and I ordered every on in the vehicle to place their hands on the 
ceiling. I asked the driver if there was anything illegal in the vehicle and he stated no. 
The driver was sweating profusely and appeared to be nervous. I asked the driver for a 
consent search of the vehicle which he stated that the vehicle was not his but was 
Sara's.  I t hen asked Sara and she gave me consent to search the vehicle.

I had all the occupants exit the vehicle one at a time. I patted the back seat passenger 
down later identified as Gregory Myers.  I told Gregory to face the rear of the vehicle 
(Trunk) and put his hands on the windshield and great distance between his feet for a 
pat down for officer safety. 

Gregory then leaned forward putting his torso and pelvis completely on the back of the 
vehicle. I told Gregory to step back multiple times because Gregory was only taking 
small steps and I observed a small piece of napkin like paper attached to the rear of 
the vehicle due to it raining and the vehicle being wet. I opened the napkin and 
observed multiple pills labeled Mylan A1 which was identified as benzodiazepines a 
schedule 4 narcotic, Gregory stated that they belonged to the driver after they were 
recovered.

All the occupants were detained and placed in separate cruisers which were called to 
the scene.

Since the pills came from a passenger which was in the vehicle the vehicle was 
searched due to probable cause. Upon searching the vehicle the only other 
contraband that was recovered was a glass smoking pipe with white residue inside in 
the back passenger area on a seat that was next to the seat Gregory was sitting in, the 
item was confiscated.

The driver then told me he gave a false name due to him having a warrant, The driver 
then gave me the correct information and was identified as Shelton Dailey who had 
and active warrant out of Stark County. Stark was sent a hit confirmation which they 
responded saying they would meet at Tail Gators for to take Shelton into custody, Ptl. 
Everhart transported Shelton to the location and transferred Shelton into the custody of 
the Stark County Sheriffs Office.

Sara was released and was allowed to take her vehicle, Gregory was placed into 
custody and read Miranda rights and search a final time with only having a cell phone 
and $40 ( two $20 bills) which was confiscated due to the currency possibly being 
affiliated with narcotics.

Gregory was transported to the station where he was told his charges, ORC 
2925.11C2 M-1 Possession of drugs / ORC 2925.12 M-2 Possessing Drug Abuse 
Instruments / ORC 2925.14 M-4 Drug Paraphernalia. 

Gregory was told his bond amount of $2,750 and he contacted Sly Bail Bonds who 
came to the station and his mother Joyce Bland signed for his bond and Gregory was 
able to post bond. Gregory was advised of his court date of 01/16/2020 at 9:00am for 
the Mahoning County Court #3.  Gregory signed his recognizance bond and received a 
copy and was released. 

The property was logged into evidence and I will be seeking a warrant for the driver 
Shelton Dailey for Obstruction of Official Business.

On 01/10/ while on patrol in a dual unit with Ptl. Scott we were driving South on S 12th 
St when we observed a silver van turn onto US RT 62 with out signaling. we followed 
the vehicle observed the vehicle swerve off the road to the right multiple times. At this 
time, we initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle a 2016 dodge caravan bearing OH

driver and rear passenger were moving around inside the vehicle.

Myself and Ptl. Scott approached the vehicle, Ptl. Scott approached the driver side and 
I approached the passenger side, as I did so I stopped at the rear passenger window 
and I could see the rear passenger franticly moving around and putting his hands in 
his pockets and Ptl. Scott ordered everyone to stop moving around and put their hands 
on the ceiling. Around this time Ptl. Everhart arrived and I asked the rear passenger to 
roll down the window and I began questioning him about why he was moving around in 
such a frantic manner. The passenger identified as Gregory Myers said he was just 
doing his "fantasy league" and was trying to rush to get it done. Gregory was sweating 
and seemed extremely nervous. Ptl. Scott obtained consent to search the vehicle and 
the occupants exited the vehicle.

While Ptl. Scott began speaking with Gregory. Ptl. Everhart began speaking with driver 
who was later identified as Shelton Dailey after he gave Ptl. Scott a fake name and I 
began speaking with the front passenger who was identified as Sarah Dobrunick the 
registered owner of the vehicle. While I was speaking with her I heard Ptl. Scott ask 
Gregory what something was, I turned and observed a balled-up paper towel laying in 
the road way ln front of Gregory that was not previously there. Ptl. Scott picked the 
item up and advised it was pills.

All the occupants were detained at that time and placed in separate cruisers. Gregory 
was placed in myself and Ptl. Scott's car. Shelton was placed in Ptl. Everhart's car, and 
Sarah was placed in Sgt. Kelm's car as he was now on scene as well. Sgt. Kelm and I 
recovered the pills and observed they were labeled Mylan A1 which was later identified 
as a benzodiazepine a schedule 4 narcotic. All units then continued to search the 
vehicle. A glass smoking pipe with white residue was also recovered from the vehicle.

The driver who at this time had given his real name Shelton advised he gave Ptl. Scott 
the fake name because he had a warrant. He was confirmed to have an active warrant 
out of Stark county and he was transported by Ptl. Everhart to tailgaters in Alliance and 
turned over to Stark county SO. Sara was released and was allowed to take her 
vehicle, as all parties involved advised she was Shelton old manager and was just 
doing them a favor and giving them a ride and that she had no knowledge of the drugs 
in the car. Gregory was placed into custody and read Miranda rights By Ptl. Scott.

Gregory was transported to the station, Gregory was charged with ORC 2925.11 C2

fight. Dispa tch advised that Boardman advised that they received a 911 call from a 
female stating that her dad was trying to kill them and hung up. 

Upon arrival I was advised that there was pizza delivery driver who advised that there 
was a fight at the same residence. I arrived on location and spoke to the pizza boy 
whom advised that they were actively fighting in the house. A male by the name of 
"Boyer" came running from the back yard and requested be in the rear of the 
residence.  There was shattered glass all over the front lawn and on the sidewalk. 

I made my way to the back with Boyer whom advised that Mitch Court was grabbing 
and hitting his family members. I walked to the backyard and saw that the fence was 
broken and that furniture on the back porch waf all broken. Amanda was very adamant  
stating that there was no physical violence between anyone and there was no reason 
to charge anyone while she was holding her head. 

Sara Court was sitting on the porch in the middle of a panic attack with the side of her 
face red and puffy. Amanda started stating that there was nothing wrong with her just a 
panic attack. I requested EMS on location. At this time various other units started to

that Mitch was there for an "intervention" and started going crazy. 

Boyer advised that he was holding Mitch back from causing harm to his son Aaron.  
Boyer advised that he threw a glass mug at Amanda's head and punched Sara in the 
face.

Aaron and I spoke and Aaron advised the same thing that Boyer disclosed. Smith Twp. 
PD advised that they were out with Mitch at Alliance Sebring and Lexington RD. I 
spoke with Sgt. Kelm and advised him that the victims in this case did not wish to 
proceed with charges, but due to the evidence and the injuries, and the fact that this

CITED: Kylie Lanave  (AGE 21)
535 West California Ave, Sebring

DUS   337.05


On 01/05/2020, While on patrol I observed a vehicle in which I knew the registered 
owner to be under an ALS suspension. I observed a Red Kia Rio going to Rocky' Drive 
Thru with a female driving the vehicle. I knew the registered owner of the car to be that 
of Kylie Lanave. I ran Kylie through dispatch and found that she was suspended with 
driving privileges. 

I positioned my cruiser in an empty lot by the railroad tracks so that I could get a clear 
view of the driver when the vehicle came out of the Drive Thru. The vehicle exited the 
Drive Thru and crossed the path of my headlights and I was able to visualize Kylie 
Lanave as the driver of the vehicle. I then initiated a traffic stop and the vehicle 
stopped on California Avenue at South 15th Street. I approached the vehicle and 
spoke with Kylie Lanave and Jacob Fullerton who was the valid passenger. Kylie 
advised that she knows that she was out of her driving privileges, but she needed 
cigarettes. Kylie advised that she has "family time" on her privileges that ended at 5pm 
and she should have run her errands then. 

Kylie presented the privileges which were the original documents signed with Judge 
Morgan's signature. Kylie was served with a citation for driving under suspension. I 
asked Kylie to exit the vehicle for an administrative search of the vehicle for the 
purpose of looking for valuables due to the vehicle being impounded. I asked Kylie if 
anything illegal in the car because it was going to be inventoried and she stated, "No I 
don't do none of that anymore, I'm pregnant". 

I looked through the car and found a corner of a baggie that had white powdery 
residue on it with no full substance. Kylie was released on a citation with a court date 
of 1/9/2020 at 0900. Springers arrived and secured the vehicle. 

I then cleared.

12090 Malmsberry Rd. Beloit, OH 44609

Underage Consumption   4301.69(E) ORC    /   BOND $1,250.00


Upon arrival to the scene, several patrons standing outside the bar in the parking lot 
advised me that a female individual had walked out of the bar with the no shoes on 
and was screaming profanity and that this individual was with Josh Hill during the night 
but that Josh had left her at the bar alone and that he went home. I then advised Ptl. 
Scott and he then drove to Josh's house to see if he could locate the female. I then 
went inside the bar to speak with the bartender later identified as Cierra Roosa. She 
advised me that she had provided the female with a beer and that she eventually left 
the bar and walked northbound toward Ohio Ave. She also stated that when the female 
came to the bar with Josh Hill that she was already intoxicated.

At this point, I then cleared from the bar and headed toward Ptl. Scott's location. Ptl. 
Scott then advised that he was able to locate and identify the individual and that it was 
Josh's'girlfriend. She was identified as Madeleine Hinkle and we then found out after 
running her through dispatch that she was only 19 years of age. Maddie admitted to us 
that she had been drinking all night and there was also a strong odor of alcohol coming 
from her breath. I then placed Maddie under arrest for underage consumption of 
alcohol. I then read Maddie her Miranda rights and I then placed her in the back of unit 
#301. Upon arrival to the station, myself and Ptl. Scott then worked on all the 
necessary documentation that needed to be completed. 

After fingerprinting, photographing, and finishing the bond paperwork, we then advised 
Maddie that she was going to be released on a Recognizance Bond of $1,250.00 and 
that she was being charged with underage consumption of alcohol 4301.69(E) ORC. 
Maddie was also advised of her mandatory court date appearance at MCC#3 for 1-9-
2020 at 0900.

At this point, once all necessary documentation was completed, we then transported 
Maddie to her house in Beloit and then cleared the scene without further incident. Also 
to be noted: Ptl. Scott then spoke with Cierra Roosa (the bartender) over the phone 
and asked her if she had personally served Maddie alcohol and she stated that she did 
indeed serve her beer and she also stated that she did not ID her either. Cierra was 
also advised that she needs to provide us with surveillance footage during the hours in 
which Maddie was at the Bar. *Possible charges are pending following a further 
investigation on Cierra Roosa by Ptl. Scott.

Narrative by Ptl. Scott #505

Upon my arrival with Ptl. Brindack I observed Duane Benedetti and Tracy Benedetti 
leaving the area saying that their friends were trying to retrieve a child at 540 1/2 W. 
Oregon Ave. I then spoke to a woman parked in the drive way of the residence, Crystal 
Nicholson who said she had custody of Ashley Mcfall's child and Kimberly Leeson was 
inside and not letting the child come out. 

I spoke to Kimberly who immediately let the child go with Crystal and I observed 
Kimberly with no pants and lacerations on her legs and hands and red marks around 
her neck and Kimberly stated that Duane came to her house to argue with her about 
their son Joseph Benedetti and stated it got out of coritrol and Duane physically 
assaulted her. Kimberly signed charges for domestic violence and her wounds were 
photographed and Kimberly was assessed by Sebring Fire Dept and she refused 
medical treatment.

The child was assessed due to Crystal believing she had been consuming 
methamphetamine and she was released shortly after. Once the scene was clear 
myself and Ptl. Brindack obtained a written statement from Duane Benedetti stating 
that he was assaulted and did not touch Kimberly. 

Ptl. Brindack and I then dbserved a video from neighbors showing Duane and 
Kimberly exiting the residence of 540 1/2 W. Oregon Ave. and it appeared to be normal 
and then Kimberly struck Duane in the face and a struggle ensued and Duane got in 
his vehicle and left.

I am forwarding this to prosecutor Tolson for charges of domestic violence on both 
parties.

that someone he knew was attempting to get there child from Kim at 540 1/2 W. 
Oregon Ave. Units quickly responded to the location and began speaking with a 
woman parked in the drive way of the residence, the woman was identified as Crystal 
Nicholson who said she had custody of Ashley Mcfall's child and Kimberly Leeson was 
not letting them have the child. We made contact with Kim who was bleeding from her 
knee and had red marks on her neck, Kim indicated that she wasn't letting the child 
leave previously because she was trying to clean herself up. The child was returned 
safely to Crystal.

The child was assessed by Sebring fire who was already on scene for Kim's injuries. 
Crystal stated she believed that the child had been exposed to and possibly even 
"smoked" Meth with her mother Ashley McFall. Sebring EMS advised she was not 
showing any signs of drug use and the girl stated she had not smoked anything.

We then spoke with Kim once again who indicated that her ex Duane Benedetti had 
assaulted her because he said "she was killing their son Joey" because he had 
overdosed the night before. DV charges were signed a statement was obtained and 
units cleared. Units then went and obtained video of the incident that appeared to 
show Kim throw the first punch at Duane and then a struggle ensued. Units also went

Arrest: Sheila Larkins, AGE 38
4325 Kemary Ave S W, Navarre

WARRANT - STARK COUNTY    OCA : W19-90

WARRANT - STARK COUNTY    OCA : W19-91


Unit responded to a welfare check at residence. Upon arrival, myself (Ptl. Stanton), Ptl. 
Scott and Brindack of Sebring Police found a female laying on the porch of a 
residence. The female identified as Sheila Larkins was attempting to enter the 
residence believing it to be a different residence.

Sheila admitted to attempting to climb over the fence to enter the back yard and also 
admitted to attempting to climb up the side of the house to enter the second story (the 
residence did not have a second floor besides the attic). Ptl. Scott and Brindack 
confirmed Sheilas identity and notified Stark County Sheriffs Office since a warrant 
was issued against Sheila for a different charge on an earlier date.

Sheila had no shoes on her person and was extremely cold from being out in the 
temperature for a significant amount of time. Sheila also did not make any sense as to 
her reasoning for being at the residence and was unaware she was not suppose to be 
there. 

The residence owners are not pressing charges against Sheila for trespassing at this 
time. Nothing has been reported as damaged at this time either. 

Sebring EMS was on scene and treated Sheila for the cold and verified any other 
medical problems for clearance to go to the Stark County Jail. Since Stark County 
Sheriffs did in fact want Sheila for her warrant, I transported her to a designated 
location and met with Stark County Sheriffs, transferring her into there custody. At this 
time Sheila admitted to marijuana use and alcohol consumption. I told Stark County 
Sheriffs she has been seen by Sebring EMS and was already cleared from them 
before bringing her. 

I cleared the scene without further incident.

(Incident Narrative 7-1-2019 Ptl D. Marchionda #507)

I established contact with Martha Hanshaw in the lobby of the Sebring Police 
Department. Hanshaw was standing at the dispatcher's window and had blood coming 
from a cut on her left arm. Visibly shaken and upset, Hanshaw informed me she was 
attacked by her daughter, Amanda Stovall, at her residence on E Vermont Avenue. 
According to a voluntary written statement provided by Hanshaw, Stovall was throwing 
objects at her, threatening to kill her and managed to cut her left forearm with one of 
her fingernails.

Hanshaw stated the incident escalated from a verbal dispute regarding utilities and 
finances to her screaming obscenities at her. Hanshaw stated Amanda picked up a 
vase and threw it towards her but missed. Hanshaw stated Amanda then threw a cup 
of coffee and then her phone at her as well.

Hanshaw stated while all of this was happening, Amanda was threatening to kill her 
and that she threatens her from time to time in the past. Hanshaw stated during the 
entire altercation, Amdanda's boyfriend, "Andy" (Jesse Hooper) was present.

I asked Hanshaw if she wanted to pursue domestic violence charges against Amanda 
to which she stated she did. A statement of complaint for domestic violence was filled 
out and signed by Hanshaw. I asked Hanshaw where Amanda was and she answered 
Amanda left the house with her boyfriend to go to North Jackson. I asked Hanshaw if 
she wanted medical attention for her injury and she declined but was provided some 
tissues to wipe the blood away from her arm. Hanshaw signed the medical release 
form in case she decided to go the hospital at a later time and was also provided a 
copy of the domestic violence information sheet.

While on station typing this report, Amanda phoned the station and admitted there was 
an altercation but denied assaulting her mother. I asked Amanda if she could come to 
the station to provide a statement and she answered she was in Youngstown and did 
not have the gas to make it back to Sebring. I informed Amanda she could come to the 
Sebring Police Department on Tuesday or Wednesday this week to provide her 
statement.

An warrant for Amanda Stovall for ORC 2919.25 Domestic Violence and ORC 2903.13 
Assault, both misdemeanors of the first degree, will be obtained from Mahoning

On Sunday, December 29, 201 9, dispatch advised an anonymous caller phoned the 
station to report the location of Amanda Stovall in North Jackson. Jackson Police 
dispatch was contacted and officers from Jackson and Milton Township were sent to 
the location. Dispatch later advised me Jackson PO had Stovall in custody and they 
would be transporting her to their station on Mahoning Ave for the custody exchange.

I arrived at the Jackson Police Department, 10613 Mahoning Ave, and was met by 
officers from Jackson and Milton Township. I served Stovall with her copies of the 
warrants and informed her of her Miranda Rights. Stovall stated she understood her 
rights and was willing to waive them, but did not provide any pertinent information 
regarding the charges. I explained to Stovall the charges against her and her court 
date, Thursday, January 2,2020 at 0900 in Mahoning County Court #3. Stovall asked if 
she would be able to bond out and I advised her she could bond out at the jail and 
what her bail amount was. Stovall was photographed in Jackson PD's processing 
room.

Stovall was transported without being in handcuffs due to pre-existing physical 
conditions that would result in extreme discomfort and possible injury. While en route 
to the Mahoning County Justice Center in Youngstown, I provided dispatch with a 
phone number for Stovallls boyfriend and to contact him and let him know where she 
was being taken to. Upon arrival at Mahoning County Justice Center, Stovall was 
placed in two sets of handcuffs behind her back (gapped/double locked) and escorted 
into intake. Mahoning County Justice Center accepted custody of Stovall without issue.

Narrative by Ptl. Scott #505  12/29/2019

While on patrol in a marked police cruiser unit #302 I Ptl. Scott was traveling 
westbound on U.S. R.T. 62 when I came to a stop at the intersection at U.S. R.T. 62 
and S. Johnson Rd. when the traffic light turned red. There was a vehicle in front of me 
at the light, the vehicle was a black 200 Volvo SW bearing Ohio registration HFB7893. 
When the light turned green the vehicle drove westbound and went left of center 
multiple times. I activated my overhead lights and initiated a traffic stop on 62 in front 
of the Oak Ridge Motel and the vehicle slowed down and continued westbound and 
finally pulled into the parking lot of Bistro 62.

I exited my vehicle and made contact with the driver I identified as Michael Snyder, I 
informed him of the reason for the traffic stop and requested his driver's license, 
registration, and proof of insurance. I could immediately detect a strong odor of an 
alcoholic beverage coming from the vehicle. Michael pulled his wallet from his pants 
and attempted to find his driver's license but Michael passed his license twice and then 
pulled out three credit cards. I told him he passed his license and he located it 
afterwords. Michael searched through the center console and glove department for a 
short time and found his registration but did not show me proof of financial 
responsibility. I asked Michael if he had consumed any alcoholic beverages prior to 
operating the motor vehicle and Michael told me that he did.

By this time Ptl. Peterman as well as Ptl. Sorokach (Smith Twp.) arrived, Ptl. Peterman 
shut off his and my front overheat lights, and Ptl. Sorokach shut his off as well. I asked 
Michael if he would submit to field sobriety testing and he said he would. I had Michael 
exit his vehicle and I patted him down and took his pocket knife and placed it in his 
vehicle.

I asked Michael if he had any medical conditions and he stated he has high blood 
pressure that he also takes medication for but he said he had not taken it tonight and 
that was the only medical issue he has. I asked if his glasses where prescription and 
he told me they where, I held a pen as a stimulus and asked Michael if he could see 
the pen with his glasses and he said yes. I asked Michael if he had a head injury 
recently, fainted, or had been hospitalized recently and he said no.

I asked Michael to stand straight up with his hands to his side and feet together while I 
checked his eyes for equal tracking, equal pupil size, and resting nystagmus. Both of 
Michael's eyes tracked equally, both of Michael's pupils where of equal size, and 
Michael did not have a resting nystagmus.

The first test was the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus and I had Michael stay in the 
position he was told to be in prior and explained the instructions and when I finished I 
asked Michael if he understood and Michael told me that he did understand. When the 
test began I observed the following clues: Lack of smooth pursuit in both eyes, Distinct 
nystagmus at maximum deviation, and Onset of  nystagmus prior to 45 degrees.

I then had Michael stand straight up with his hands to his side and his right foot in front 
of his left foot and instructed him to stay in that position until I told him to start. I 
explained the instructions and when I finished I asked Michael if he understood them 
and Michael told me that he did understand. Michael took one step and went off of the 
line and then stated " Fuck it im not doing this". I then placed Michael in custody for 
suspicion of OVI. Hand restraints where placed on Michael and he was placed in the 
rear of marked unit #302 and I read Michael his Miranda rights.

A tow was called to the scene and an inventory was done on the vehicle by Ptl. 
Peterman and a liquor bottle that had the cap seal broken was confiscated. Ptl. 
Peterman and I cleared the scene to take Michael back to station while Ptl. Sorokach 
stood by for the towing of the vehicle which was towed by Springer's Towing to 10 N. 
12th St. with no hold.

Once back at station I started a 20 minute observation period on Michael and read him 
a BMV 2255 forum which Michael signed. Michael refused to take any chemical test 
and was marked down as a refusal. Michael was processed, fingerprinted, and 
photographed. Michael's driving record showed that he had a OVI conviction within 20 
years. Michael was issued a traffic citation for OVI(SFST) ORC4511.19(A)(1)(a), 
OVI(Refusal w/ prior) ORC 4511e19(A)(2)(a), and Left of center ORC 4511.29.

Michael was given a court date of 01/02/2020 at 9:OOam with a mandatory

Matea Kohl   (AGE 19)
696 E. Ohio Ave. Sebring, Ohio 44672

FTA: Theft


Narrative by Ptl. Peterman #511  12/27/2019

I advised dispatch to run Matea Kohl for any warrants, whom I observed was walking 
with Michael Sharp northbound on 14th St. Dispatch advised she had 2 active 
warrants from Columbiana county. I approached Matea and asked her to turn around 
as she had 2 active warrants from Columbiana County. I asked dispatch to call 
Columbiana County to see if they wanted to pick up Matea.

I performed a pat down of Matea with Ptl. Scott #505, and Ptl. Brindack #506 on scene 
and present to witness, and asked Matea if she had any weapons. Matea advised she 
had 2 knives on her, one in her pocket, and one in her backpack. Upon Ptl. Brindack 
searching Mateas backpack, he discovered a small bag of green, leafy marijuana. 
Matea advised it "wasn't mine".

After searching for any additional weapons, I then placed Matea in my cruiser and 
transported her to station. At arrival to station, we had Matea sit in the squad room to 
await for the decision if Columbiana County would be picking Matea up. Dispatch 
returned with approval that they would pick her up at the Sunoco gas station on SR 62. 
I then transported Matea to Sunoco where a Columbiana County Sergeant received 
Matea for transport. I then cleared without further incident.

Matea was not given a citation for possession of marijuana, but was confiscated for 
evidence.

Narrative by Ptl. Scott #505 12/27/2019

On 12/27/2019 6:03pm I Ptl. Scott along with Ptl. Brindack was at Circle K walking 
outside to our cruiser when we observed a vehicle blocking the gas pump having 
difficulty parking when the parking spots where empty, the vehicle then backed up into 
a parked vehicle at the gas pump and drove to the side of the building and parked. The 
vehicle was a silver 2003 Ford four door bearing Ohio registration FYD7231.

I approached the vehicle that had backed into the parked vehicle and made contact 
with the driver identified as Robert Webb who appeared to be highly intoxicated, I 
could smell a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the vehicle. I asked 
Robert if he knew that he backed into a vehicle and Robert replied that "I'm fine I only 
live 2 blocks away" and continued to repeat that statement through out the incident. I 
asked Robert if he had consumed any alcoholic beverages prior to operating his 
vehicle tonight, Robert said "No" and then told me he had "One beer".

I told Robert to exit the vehicle and had him stand to the rear of it and asked him if he 
would perform field sobriety testing, Robert told me he would take the field sobriety 
tests.

I had Robert stand straight up with his feet together and his hands down at his sides 
and I asked Robert if he had any medical issues and Robert stated no he did not, I 
asked him if he could see the stimulus with out his glasses and Robert stated that he 
could. I then checked Robert's eyes for equal tracking, equal pupil size, and a resting 
nystagmus. Both of Roberts eyes tracked equally, both of Roberts pupils where of 
equal size, and Robert did not have a resting nystagmus. I then began the first test 
being the horizontal gaze nystagmus, I explained the instructions and after I asked 
Robert if he understood and Robert said he did understand.

Once the test began I observed the following clues: Lack of smooth pursuit in both 
eyes, Distinct nystagmus at maximum deviation in both eyes, and onset of nystagmus 
prior to 45 degrees in both eyes. Robert at times would stop looking at the stimulus 
which was my ink pen and stare off.

The next test was the walk and turn and I explained the instructions to Robert and after 
I asked him if he understood and Robert said he did. Robert could not balance well 
enough to put his right foot in front of his left foot and at one point almost falling walked 
backwards and then fell into the rear of his vehicle. Robert then stated that he could 
not perform the test so I then placed Robert in custody for suspicion of OVI and placed 
Robert in hand restraints and placed him in the rear of marked unit #303.

I talked to Circle K staff and asked if the vehicle could be left on the property and the 
manager Brandi Springer said it could for 24 hours so the vehicle was left at Circle K. 
Robert while in custody stated he has an equilibrium problem and appeared to have 
medical issues due to his age (72YO). The fire department was requested and arrived 
and took Robert's vitals and stated that his blood pressure was slightly raised but is 
normal for an elderly person and told me that he was fine other than the fact of him 
being intoxicated he was awake and alert and was aware of what was happening.

Robert was transported to station and a 20 minute observation period was performed 
and while doing so I read the BMV 2255 form, Robert signed the form and agreed to 
give a urine sample and a breath sample. Robert attempted to give a urine sample but 
stated that he could not due to a bladder infection. I then operated the intoxilyzer 8000 
and performed a breath test on Robert and the result was a BrAC0.279. I told Robert 
his results and informed him that he was being placed under administrative license 
suspension and was not to operate any motor vehicle.

Robert was issued a traffic citation for OVI (SFST) ORC 4511.19(A)(1)(a) and OVI 
(>.17) ORC 4511.19(A)(1)(h) and DUS ORC 4510.11.  Robert signed his citation and 
received a copy which had Robert's court date on it for 01/02/2020 at 9:00am for 
Mahoning County Court #3 with a mandatory appearance. Robert received a copy of 
the BMV 2255 form as well as a copy of his breath results and gave him a 
recognizance bond of $1,000 for both OVI offenses which he signed and received a 
copy which also has his court date.

Robert started to make suicidal comments such as " I would be better off dead." and 
"Can I just die".

The fire department was called and Robert refused to go to the hospital and was 
forced by a emergency admission paperwork that was given to the fire dept. Robert 
was taken to Aultman Alliance Hospital. Ptl. Peterman also went to the hospital and 
obtained blood samples from Robert and was packaged correctly and paper work was 
complete and placed in the refrigerator to be sent for testing.

Narrative Ptl. Brindack 506 12/27/19

On 12/27/19 myself and Ptl. Scott were at Circle K 205 E Ohio Ave Sebring OH 44672. 
While there we observed a light green ford focus FYD7231 begin backing out of a 
parking spot and it appeared as though the vehicle was going to strike the vehicle 
behind it pumping gas. Units began yelling at the driver to stop but we could not get his 
attention and he struck the vehicle. The ford began driving away and Ptl. Scott ran 
after it and stopped him before he left the parking lot. 

I approached the driver of the vehicle that had been struck a Dark colored Dodge RAM 
HOP7299 and the driver was identified as Scott Persinger, I took down Scott's 
information and insurance and observed only minor damage to his vehicle as the front 
bumper that was struck had been damaged prior to the accident. 

While I was speaking with Scott, Ptl. Scott was speaking with the driver of the green 
car Robert Webb and It quickly became apparent he was under the influence of 
alcohol. Ptl. Scott handled the OVI portion while i handled the accident portion.

Ptl. Brindack 506 12/27/19


Narrative Ptl. Peterman #511  12/28/2019

On 12/27/2019 1 Patrolman Peterman #511 was called to Circle K for a private 
property accident. On arrival, Ptl. Scott #505 and Ptl. Brindack #506 were questioning 
the driver of a red for focus (FYD7231), Robert Webb, on the circumstances of how he 
struck the silver dodge truck (HOP7299) involved. Ptl. Scott stated him and Ptl. 
Brindack witnessed Robert back his vehicle into the silver dodge truck, then attempt to 
leave before both officers stopped him.

Ptl. Scott began SFST tests, and I observed several clues including the following: Lack 
of smooth pursuit in both eyes, Distinct nystagmus at maximum deviation in both eyes, 
and onset of nystagmus prior to 45 degrees in both eyes. Robert at times would stop 
looking at the stimulus which was the ink pen and stare off.

On walking turn test, l observed Robert could not balance well enough to put his right 
foot in front of his left foot and at one point almost falling walked backwards and then 
fell into the rear of his vehicle. Robert then stated to PTI. Scott that he could not 
perform the test so I then placed Robert in custody for suspicion of OVI and placed 
Robert in hand restraints and placed in the rear of marked unit #303.

At station while processing paperwork, as I was interacting with Robert, he made 
several suicidal statements including one where he states to me "I would rather off be 
dead". I advised this statement to Ptl. Scott, and Sebring FD was dispatched to our 
station to perform an evaluation. It was then determined that Robert would be 
transported to Aultman Alliance Community Hospital for further evaluations. I followed 
Sebring FD to the hospital in marked unit #301.

At the hospital, I requested a blood sample from Robert, who consented to the draw 
due to being unable to give a urine sample from a bladder infection. I obtained blood 
samples from Robert, as Robert then made another statement saying "You can get 
more blood by putting a bullet in my head". I then cleared the hospital back to station 
with the blood samples.

At station, I packaged and labeled the samples properly, and placed it in the 
refrigerator to be sent for testing.

Narrative by Ptl. Scott #505  12/25/2019

While on patrol Ptl. Brindack and I observed a vehicle traveling west in the 100 block 
of E. Pennsylvania Ave. The vehicle was a green 2000 Buick 4 door sedan bearing 
Ohio temporary registration J728291. The vehicle came to the intersection of E. 
Pennsylvania Ave. and N. 15th St. and failed to use a turn signal 150 prior to coming to 
the intersection. Once the vehicle continued both Ptl. Brindack and I could hear a loud 
exhaust coming from the vehicle. A traffic stop was initiated and the vehicle continued 
through the Rocky's Drive Through and came to a complete stop in the 100 block of W. 
Pennsylvania Ave.

As we approached the vehicle Ptl. Brindack made contact with the driver identified as 
Alisha Riesen as I made contact with the passenger Henry Cowart Jr. Ptl. Brindack 
informed Alisha of the reason for the stop and requested her driver's license, 
registration, and proof of insurance which Ptl. Brindack did not receive.  Alisha said 
she left her driver's license at home, and I asked Henry for his driver's license which I 
received an Ohio identification card.

I told Henry that I observed him driving the vehicle earlier in the day to which he stated 
was true, dispatch then advised that Alisha was valid and that Henry was suspended. I 
asked Henry if we could perform a consent search of the vehicle and he stated yes. 
While performing a consent search Ptl. Brindack found in the center console a black 
box containing a glass "light bulb" pipe containing small amounts of white residue 
inside. I found in the back seat a bag containing multiple small baggies, a digital scale, 
and a bent gift card.

The occupants were detained with the use of hand restraints while we conducted the 
rest of the search which was then a probable cause search. Once the search was 
complete no other contraband was located, the vehicle contained mostly trash, clothes 
and multiple knives. Henry admitted to driving the vehicle earlier and having 
possession of the vehicle regularly and stated other people left those items in the 
vehicle. Alisha was given a verbal warning for turn signal and loud exhaust, and Henry 
was placed in custody for drug paraphernalia and drug abuse instruments. The vehicle 
was towed to 10 N. 12th St. by Springer's Towing a tow slip was obtained.

Wrongful Entrustment      SCO: 335.05



On December 22,2019, at 00:20 hours, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked 
unit 303. While facing southbound on N. 18th street at the Ohio Avenue intersection, I 
observed a grey Ford Fusion, bearing Ohio registration HAF3092, turn onto N. 18th 
street from Ohio Avenue and begin traveling southbound towards Oregon Ave. I also 
noticed that the vehicles rear license plate light was not functional. The Fusion then 
turned right onto W. Oregon Avenue, with me activating my overhead emergency lights 
and initiating a traffic stop.

Once the vehicle came to a complete stop, I approached and made contact with the 
single occupant, which was the male driver, and advised him of the reason that he was 
being stopped. I also asked for his license, registration, and proof of insurance. At this 
point, the subject said that he didn't have a driver license on him and that he was 
under suspension. The subject did identify himself as Michael lair, and advised that his 
date of birth was 02/16/1977. I then asked Mr. Lair if he had driving privileges, with him 
saying that he didn't think so. Lair also said that he believed that his license was 
suspended for not having insurance. 

At this point, I requested Ptl. Scott to respond to my location as well as asked Mr. Lair 
to step out of the vehicle. Once Lair was outside the vehicle, I asked for and received 
consent to perform a pat-down search of his person. Lair advised me beforehand that 
he did have a Leatherman multi-tool on him, which I took possession of and informed 
him I would keep it with me for the duration of our encounter. I also asked Lair, where 
he lived, with him pointing to a house directly across the street from where we were.

Ptl. Scott then arrived on scene. At around this time, it was confirmed by dispatch that 
Lair was under an FRA suspension, did not have privileges, and that the bureau of 
motor vehicles had a confiscation order on his driver license. Lair said that his driver 
license had already been taken and was unable to provide it to me. It was also found 
that the vehicle was registered to Lair's girlfriend, Kristin Ulman, whom he resides with. 
In speaking further with Lair, he gave consent for me to search the vehicle. Ulman also 
came out of the house at around this time. In speaking with Ulman, I asked her if she 
knew that Lair's driver license was under suspension. Ulman advised that she was 
aware that it was. I also asked her if she were aware that he did not have driving 
privileges, with her stating "I don't go through his mail". I then asked Kristin how long 
they had been together, with her saying since 2002. I then confronted her with the fact 
that Lair had been cited for driving under suspension in the last year and that 1 found it 
hard to believe that she was unaware that he did not have driving privileges. Ulman 
continued to maintain that she was unaware that he did not have privileges.

I then wrote citation 031554 to Mr. Lair for driving under suspension (SCO 335.07) and 
license plate light required (SCO 337.04). Ms. Ulman was given citation 031545 for 
wrongful entrustment (SCO 335.05).

Both parties were made aware of their mandatory court appearances at 9:00am on 
12/26/2019 at Mahoning County Court No. 3. Both Ulman and Lair signed their 
citations and were given their copies. Sebring Tire then arrived and towed the vehicle, 
with a hold also being placed on it. A search of the vehicle was performed with no 
contraband being located. Both Ptl. Scott and I then cleared from the call with nothing 
additional to report at this time.

Traffic - OVI
Johnson Rd. near St. Route 62


CITED: Dennis Wame (AGE 49)
12901 Baywood St. SE Minerva, OH 44657

OVI  /  4511.19A1A (ORC M-1)  /   BOND $500.00


As I approached the vehicle, I noticed that there was a female passenger standing 
outside the vehicle vomiting. I then turned my cruiser around and initiated my 
overhead lights. I then approached the driver side of the vehicle and advised the driver 
that I was there to check on his well being as well as the passengers well-being. As I 
was speaking to the driver who was later identified as Dennis Wame, I noticed that the 
vehicle was in drive and that his foot was on the brake. I then advised Dennis to put 
the vehicle in park and I then requested for him to provide me his drivers license, proof 
of insurance and registration in which he provided his driver license but no other 
documentation. 

The vehicle was a Red 2018 Jeep Wrangler bearing Florida registration KDPL16. 
Dennis advised me that he had stopped and pulled over to the side of the road, 
because the passenger later identified as Kimberly Brown was drunk and that she 
needed to vomit. As I was speaking to Dennis, I could smell a strong odor of alcohol 
coming from his breath. I then asked Dennis if he had consumed any alcohol, and he 
stated to me that he did not drink anything at all.

At this point, I then requested Sgt. Kelm to come to the scene and I then had Dennis 
step out of the vehicle so that I could perform a SFST to determine if he was impaired. 
After Dennis stepped out of the vehicle, I then had him stand in between his car and 
my cruiser and I then shut off the front overhead lights of my cruiser. Dennis then 
agreed to perform the test and I then instructed him to stand straight up with his arms 
at his side. I also instructed him to follow the tip of my pen and to not move his head 
while doing so. 

Upon conducting the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test, I noted equal pupil size and 
equal tracking in both eyes and no resting nystagmus. However, later on during the 
test, I noticed lack of smooth pursuit in both eyes, distinct and sustained nystagmus at 
maximum deviation in both eyes and also an onset of nystagmus prior to 45 degrees in 
both eyes.

The next test was the walk and turn test. I instructed Dennis to stand with his arms at 
his side and had him place his left foot in front of his right foot, touching heel to toe 
while I gave further instructions. I also advised him to not start the test until, I advised 
to do so. Dennis stated to me that he understood the test and upon performing the 
test, I noticed that Dennis did not touch heel to toe. Dennis also stepped of the line 
multiple times and was also swaying and attempting to use to arms to balance himself. 
Dennis also did not count his steps out loud and after performing the turn, he only 
completed 7 steps and then stated to me that he was done with the test. It should be 
noted that the test was .. I conducted on level and flat pavement.

At this point, I then gave Dennis instructions for the one leg stand test. I instructed 
Dennis to stand straight up with his arms at his side and to raise the foot of his choice 
approximately 6 inches off of the ground and to begin counting out loud in the one 
thousand one manner until told to stop. Dennis stated that he understood the 
instructions and he began the test. 

Upon starting the test, I noticed that Dennis swayed while attempting to balance. 
Dennis also put his foot down several times and also skipped one thousand 14 while 
counting. Based on the performance from Dennis as well as my training and 
experience, I placed Dennis under arrest for suspicion of OVI. Dennis was then placed 
in handcuffs, which were spaced and double locked. Dennis was then placed in the 
back of cruiser #303.

Dennis at this point, then admitted to me that he had consumed alcohol prior to him 
picking up Kimberly. I then had Kim call a friend to pick up the vehicle and to drive her 
back to her house at 515 N. 19th St. Shortly after, an individual later identified as Zana 
Fisher who was valid, came to the scene to pickup the vehicle and to driver Kim to her 
house. Both units then cleared the scene and transported Dennis to the station.

Upon arrival to the station, I read the BMV 2255 form to Dennis and he then refused to 
sign the form.  Dennis also refused to provide any urine, breath or blood samples as 
well.

On 12/21/2019 I assisted Ptl. Everhart with an incident that resulted in an OVI arrest. 

Upon arrival on scene Ptl. Everhart had the driver Dennis Wame, 12901 Baywood St. 
Minerva, out of the car performing SFST's. I was unable to observe the horizontal gaze 
nystagmus. While performing the walk and turn test Dennis stepped off the line on 
multiple occasions, did not step heel to toe, and was unable to complete the test. 
While performing the one leg stand Dennis used his arms to balance. Ptl. Everhart 
then advised Dennis he was being placed under arrest for suspicion of OVI. Dennis 
was then handcuffed (gapped and double locked), and placed into the rear of Ptl. 
Everharts cruiser. 

Once the passenger was able to get a sober driver to pick up the vehicle, Dennis was 
transported to the station. Dennis was read the BMV 2255 and refused any further 
testing. Dennis was given a citation for OVI 4511.19. Dennis was released on his own 
recognizance with a mandatory court appearance at MCC#3 on 12/26/2019 at

Ptl. Scott #505 Narrative

Upon arrival I observed a small child leaning out of a second story window of 396 E. 
Ohio Ave. the child saw me and then went back in side the residence and an adult shut 
the window. A person in a vehicle (Jamie Becker) parked at 395 E. Oregon Ave. told 
me that the child has done this before and she saw this driving down the road and then 
parked to call the police, Jamie showed me pictures she took while parked and I 
observed pictures of the child leaning out of the window and another picture was the 
child sitting out side of the window on the window from of the second story home.

I made contact with the home owner Brittany Wood who stated that last time she 
checked on her son he was asleep and the window was locked. Brittany stated that 
she is currently not employed and goes to hospital appointments and stays home. I 
talked to other house hold members including her husband and they stated they did 
not know the child was awake and know he was hanging out of the window. Brittany 
was detained while we completed our investigation.

I talked to the prosecutor and informed her that I was wanting to charge Brittany with 
Endangering Children and the prosecutor approved charges. Brittany was placed into 
custody and read her Miranda rights and placed into the rear of marked unit #301. 
Child protective services was contacted and allowed the children to stay at the home 
with the father Korey Wood. Brittany was taken to station and processed and was 
attempting to make bond and made suicidal comments.

Ptl. Peterman #511 Narrative

On arrival, I noticed a small child hanging his head outside of the window frame of the 
second story floor of the residence. As PTI. Scott and myself approached, the child 
quickly closed and locked the window. Ptl. Scott, and myself also spotted a small car 
with 2 occupants inside, the driver being Jaime Becky who was the original caller. 
Jamie states that "this has happened before" referencing the child hanging outside the 
window. As Ptl. Scott was looking at evidence provided by Jamie, I approached the 
front door and started knocking in an attempt to make contact with the adult residents. 
I noticed someone walking through the front yard and asked if they lived here, the 
male stated "yes, why do you wanna know?", I advised I needed to make contact with 
the parents of the child that lived on the second floor of the home. The mother of the 
child (Brittany Wood) exited the home to speak with Ptl. Scott while I obtained a 
witness statement from the witness (Jamie Becky).

Upon returning to the back porch where Ptl. Scott was questioning Brittany, her 
husband, Korey Wood was also outside speaking with both officers in regards to why 
the child was hanging outside of the window, Brittany said she thought the child was 
asleep, and did not know he was hanging outside of the window. Ptl. Scott then walked 
away to speak to the prosecutor about charges, and I requested everyone's 
identification for this report. John Lafleme became agitated with this request, and 
stated "has there been a crime committed, or have I been suspected of committing a 
crime?". I stated to John in a professional manner that I needed to identify everyone as 
part of a possible child neglect case, and everyone in the house was to be identified. 
John then became compliant, and handed over his identification card, apologizing 
stating he "was a convicted felon, and didn't want judged."

Upon Ptl. Scott returning to the scene, Brittany was detained until the investigation was 
completed as she was the parent of the child facing possible child endangering 
charges. The prosecutor returned to Ptl. Scott, informing him approval of charges, and 
Brittany was placed under arrest for Child Endangering 2919.22 and read her miranda 
rights. Both units returned to station where Brittany was fingerprinted, photographed, 
and given an opportunity to post bail. 

Upon questioning Brittany further, she stated to both officers "I've thought about 
it(suicide), but never acted on it". It was both officers determination to contact Sebring 
FD for an evaluation. FD arrived, and spoke to Brittany who advised what she told 
officers. FD asked Brittany to come to Alliance Hospital for further evaluations, and 
Brittany obliged. I followed Sebring FD, who escorted Brittany to Alliance Hospital. 

Brittany was given a recognizance form to sign with court date 12/27/2019 at MCC #3 
@ 0900A.M., and I cleared back to Sebring without further incident.

While on patrol in the downtown area, I was advised by dispatch to phone in. Upon 
phoning in. I was informed Amanda Shoffner was at Aultman Alliance Community 
Hospital with a bloody nose and one of the nurses wished to speak with an officer. I 
arrived on station, phoned the hospital and spoke with a woman identified only as 
Karen. Karen stated a female came into the ED with a bloody nose she said was 
caused from an assault in Sebring but did not say she wanted the police contacted.

I advised Karen I would be en route to the hospital to speak with Amanda regarding 
the matter.

Upon arrival, I was directed to ED room #11 where I observed Amanda sitting in a 
chair with dried blood stains on her sweat pants and hoodie. Upon closer observation, 
it appeared her nose was also swollen. Amanda was accompanied by her aunt, 
identified as Patricia Poyser. I asked Amanda if she wanted to speak with me and she 
said yes.

I asked her what happened and she stated she had gone home earlier this morning 
after being released from custody (#90I12073) with her aunt to retrieve some 
belongings. While at her residence, 546 W Maryland Ave, she and her husband, Mark, 
got into another verbal altercation that turned physical when she claims he threw her 
caboodle at her, striking her in the face and bloodying her nose. Amanda's statement 
was corroborated by Patricia. I asked Amanda if she wished to pursue domestic 
violence charges against her husband. Amanda stated she did not want to pursue 
charges against her husband.

I produced a refusal to file domestic violence complaint form, explained it to Amanda 
and even if she signed, as a police officer I can file the charge myself. Amanda stated 
she understood and signed the refusal. I asked Amanda although she signed the 
refusal, if she would be willing to provide a written statement. Amanda stated she 
would provide a written statement and was provided a voluntary statement packet. I 
asked Patricia if she was willing to provide a statement as well. Patricia stated she 
would and was provided a voluntary statement packet.

The packets were explained to Amanda and Patricia and later collected after they 
completed their statements and signed them. I asked Amanda if it was okay to 
photograph her clothes and her face. Amanda consented to photographs being taken. 
Three photographs of dried blood stains on her clothing and two photographs of her 
face were taken. All photographs were later uploaded to a department computer.

proof of insurance in which I received none of the requested documentation. The driver 
was later identified as Steven Guildoo who is a valid driver. I then asked Steven if 
there was anything illegal in the car and he advised me that there was nothing in the

would not allow me to perform one.

At this point, I then went back to my cruiser to start writing the citation and I then 
advised dispatch to have Det/K9 Redfern come to the scene to deploy the dog.

vehicle and I performed a Terry Patdown/Frisk in which nothing was found. Det.

approached Amanda who was highly intoxicated and I could smell a strong odor of 
alcohol coming from her person. Amanda was asked what happened she stated her

stated he will be at court. I then cleared.

663 W Oregon Ave, Sebring OH 44672

Violating Protection Order (F5)   ORC 2919.27  /   Bond $2,500.00

Sebring Police Department reference a violation of protection order.


Patrolman D.A. Marchionda #507
11/24/2019


Upon arrival, I established contact with a female complainant in the lobby, identified as 
Caroline Bandy. Bandy stated George Hill, who is currently incarcerated in the 
Mahoning County Justice Center for violation of protection order, sent her adult 
children a letter in the mail on or about the 23rd of October 2019. Bandy provided the 
letter in its original envelope, stamped 'INMATE CORRESPONDENCE' and addressed 
to Alexander Hill at 663 W Oregon Ave, Sebring, OH 44672 with a return address of 
'Michael Hill Inmate #6998 110 Fifth Ave, Youngstown, OH 44503.

In the letter written to Alexander, Hill attempts to establish contact with Gabrielle by 
asking if Alexander could ask her if it's ok to write her. Nothing within the letter is 
threatening or hints at any kind of violence. The letter and envelope were taken for 
evidence and a written statement from Bandy. In Bandy's written statement, she claims 
"my children are afraid of him due to his violent nature, not to mention he tried to press 
domestic violence charges against our son which were dropped. They do not want any 
contact with him whatsoever."

A review of of Hill's court and jail record shows he was sentenced on October 3, 2019 
to 30 days and 62 days in jail. One state complaint for ORC 2919.27 Violating 
protection order (F-5) will be drafted and submitted to Mahoning County Court #3 upon

On Monday, December 9, 2019, I was notified by dispatch as well as probation officer 
Modarelli that George Michael Hill Jr was at Mahoning County Court #3. I arrived on 
scene and observed Hill sitting in the main lobby. I informed Hill there was a warrant 
for his arrest and instructed him to stand up and place his hands behind his back. Hill 
was placed in handcuffs (gapped/double locked), informed of the charge and advised 
of his Miranda Rights. After Hill acknowledged his rights, he was escorted to marked

Alexander was a protected party under the protection order. Hill was provided a copy 
of the warrant and shown the protection order where it lists his son as an additional

On Friday, November 29,2019, Patrolmen Brindack and Marchionda were dispatched

suspicious activity on W New York Ave.

Patrolman D.A. Marchionda #507
11.29.2019


REPORTING OFFICER Patrolmen Brindack #506

On this date Dale Penny called and advised that he saw 3 individuals go inside 365 W 
New York ave. which is an abandoned house and should not have anyone inside it. 
Units arrived on scene and began to inspect the outside of the house. Ptl. Marchionda 
found that the back door was unlocked. Units made entry in the building and began to 
search the inside.

As we approached the attic we noticed a pair of legs begin to walk down the attic stairs 
we could not see the individuals hands so she was held at gun point as she came 
down the stairs, we ordered her to put her hands up and she did so, when I observed 
she had no weapons in her hands I switched to my taser and ordered her to keep her 
hands up and walk towards me slowly as Ptl. Marchionda handled a male that had 
come out of another room nearby. The female was identified as Jessica N Warrick, the 
male was identified as Brandon Court we took both individuals outside and I began to 
speak with Jessica as Ptl. Marchionda spoke with Brandon.

Jessica advised she was allowed to be inside and was cleaning up the house for her 
aunt and she advised me that she had a key, I had her try the key on the doors and it 
did not work. Units decided to put the individuals in the back of our patrol cars and 
finish searching the house, when we did so we observed that Brandon Court had all of 
his pockets full of small toys that he had taken from inside the house which he 
indicated were for his 4-year-old son. As I was putting Jessica in my car, she advised 
she could call the person who gave her permission to be at the house to verify she 
was allowed to be there, I advised her we would do so after we finished clearing the 
house.

Units reentered the house and began to finish our search of the attic and other rooms 
in the house we had not been able to check the first time and we found nothing out of 
the ordinary. By this time dispatch had checked the owner of 365 W New York on the 
auditor's website listed as laurie Barnett.

We then went back outside and began to speak with Jessica and ask who told her she 
could be inside, as we were speaking with her dispatch advised she had made contact 
with Brandy Barnett who advised her mother owned the house and had passed away 
so the house was in probate and nobody had permission to be inside the house and 
that her family wanted them charged. At this point Jessica was placed under arrest by 
me and Brandon as placed under arrest by Ptl. Marchionda. Prisoner were mirandized 
and transported back to the station where we were met by Devon Bamett  Heavner 
who did a statement indicating that she lived in the house that had belonged to her 
mother,  that the house was still in probate, and that she wanted charges.

Both Jessica and Brandon were charged with F5 Breaking and entering 2911.13 and 
M4 criminal trespass 2911.21 both of which were approved by Prosecutor Tholson and 
given a court date of 12/05/19 at 0900hrs. Jessica did admit to me that she never had 
permission to be in the house and that they had just gone inside because the door was 
unlocked. Both parties were booked, fingerprinted, photographed, and DNA was 
collected from Jessica. Brandon was able to post bail and Jessica was not able to post 
bond and thus was transported to MCJ by Ptl. Marchionda. Devon Heavner was given 
all the belongings that Brandon had taken from the house which consisted of old toys, 
old pennies, and a handful of ammunition all of which was so dirty it was essentially 
worthless.

REPORTING OFFICER: Sean Brindack  #506

REPORTING OFFICER:D.A. Marchionda #507

While Patrolman Brindack spoke with the complainant, I proceeded to the row of 
houses in the 300 block of W New York Ave behind the American Legion. After 
speaking with the complainant, Patrolman Brindack arrived and advised the 
complainant observed individuals enter 365 W New York Ave. Patrolman Brindack and 
I checked the exterior of the house for signs of forceful intrusion and did not find any. 
At one point, we both knocked on the front door and announced ourselves as police 
officers.

After no response at the front door, I could faintly hear movement coming from within 
the house. I proceeded to the back door of the house and found it to be unlocked. After 
advising dispatch of the unsecure door and to hold radio traffic, Patrolman Brindack 
and I announced several times after opening the door, "POLICE DEPARTMENT. IF 
YOU'RE INSIDE IDENTIFY YOURSELF, MAKE YOURSELF KNOWN.'' After shouting 
into the house multiple times with no answer, Patrolman Brindack and I entered the 
house with our duty weapons drawn.

Patrolman Brindack and I cleared the house systematically, room to room, continuing 
to announce ourselves and for anyone inside to identify themselves. As we neared the 
middle of the house, we both observed a pair of legs protrude from what appeared to 
be an attic access point. We immediately ordered for the unknown individual to show 
us their hands. The individual continued down the attic ladder until we were able to 
observe the individual as an adult female. A male then walked into our line of sight 
from a bedroom and he too was ordered to show us his hands.

Patrolman Brindack switched to less lethal and drew his X26P taser while I maintained 
cover with my duty weapon on both subjects. After Patrolman Brindack gained control 
of the female subject, I ordered the male subject to walk towards me with his hands 
visible and switched to less lethal and drew my X26P taser. I gained control of the 
male subject and holstered my taser and escorted him outside of the house and patted 
his outer garments down for weapons. Upon feeling several hard objects in his 
pockets, I was able to look into some of them and observed several toys and other 
objects in various pockets on his person.

The female and male, later identified as Jessica Nicole Warrick and Brandon Lee 
Court, were advised they were being detained and escorted to marked units #301 and 
#303. Warrick stated her aunt used to live at the house and she was there to look 
through it and clean it up. Warrick was wearing a pair of clear plastic gloves when we 
observed her in the house. Court stated he was there accompanying Warrick to collect 
toys for his 4 year old son he found in the house. Warrick was placed in #301 and 
Court placed in #303 pending further investigation.

Patrolman Brindack and I re-entered the house to finish clearing the structure to look 
for more suspects and possible contraband. Upon clearing the rest of the house, we 
did not locate any more suspects or contraband. The house was subsequently secured 
from the inside before exiting. After requesting dispatch to check the auditor's website, 
dispatch advised she found the owner of the property and would attempt to make 
contact through a number found in CAD.  Warrick stated she had a key for the house 
and used it to gain entry. According to Patrolman Brindack, he had Warrick use the key 
in front of him and discovered the key did not work. After some time had passed and 
dispatch hadn't made contact with a property owner, it was decided to release both 
parties from the scene. In the event contact was made with a property owner and they 
wanted charges, warrants would be obtained at a later time. After releasing Court from 
the scene and before releasing Warrick, Patrolman Brindack advised dispatch had 
made contact with a property owner , and that no one was supposed to be at or in the 
house.

I caught up with Court as he was reaching W California Ave near the American Legion 
and advised he was being detained again as new information had been received. 
Patrolman Brindack pulled up with Warrick still in the back seat of #301 and advised 
the property owner did in fact want charges. I had Court exit #303 and place his hands 
behind his back. After placing Court in handcuffs (gapped/double locked), I informed 
him he was under arrest for breaking & entering, criminal trespass and subsequently 
informed him of his Miranda Rights. Court acknowledged his rights and was placed in 
the back of #303. I observed Patrolman Brindack arrest and inform Warrick of the 
charges and her rights before placing her back into #301.

Both Warrick and Court were transported to the Sebring Police Department for 
processing. Patrolman Brindack photographed and fingerprinted Warrick and Court. 
Patrolman Brindack also obtained DNA from Warrick. Both were allowed to attempt to 
make contact with friends and family to post bond. Court got in touch with his mother 
and advised she could pay his bond. Warrick made several phone calls to her father 
and brother. Court read and signed a Miranda Rights waiver and provided a written 
statement. In Court's statement, he claims he followed Wanick into the house after 
watching her use a key to unlock the door. Court wrote he did this because he was told 
there was a bunch of toys inside and he wanted to check them for his kid. Court wrote 
he was led to believe Warrick had permission to be there.

A bail bondsman from Sly Bonds arrived at the station and Court was able to post 
bond. Warrick was unable to post bond at the station. Court signed a recognizance of 
the accused and was informed of his mandatory. appearance before Mahoning County 
Court #3 on Thursday, December 5, 2019 at 0900 to answer to the charges of 2911.13 
Breaking & Entering (F5) and 2911.21 Criminal Trespass (M4). Warrick was 
transported from the station to Mahoning County Justice Center in Youngstown and 
informed of hear mandatory appearance before Mahoning County Court #3 on 
Thursday, December 5,2019 at 0900 to answer to the same charges.

While en route to MCJC in Youngstown, it was discovered Warrick left property (keys) 
behind at the station. This property will be kept for safekeeping at the station for 
Warrick to retrieve at a later time.

On 11/27/2019 I Ptl. Scott initiated a traffic stop that resulted in the arrest of the driver.

Ptl. Scott #505
11/28/2019


While on patrol in a marked police cruiser I was at the intersection of N. Johnson Rd. 
and W. Ohio Ave. facing south. I observed a red pick up truck traveling east with no tail 
lights on. I pulled behind the vehicle and activated my emergency over head lights and 
initiated a traffic stop on W. Ohio Ave. and N. 20th St. The vehicle was a red 2005 
Chevrolet truck bearing Ohio registration GUW3438.

I approached the vehicle and informed the driver later identified as Oliver Yoho of the 
reason for the stop and requested his driver's license, registration, and insurance 
which I received all except the registration. Dispatch advised me that the registration to 
the vehicle had expired in April of 2019.  I returned to my cruiser and wrote a traffic 
citation for tail lights SCO 337.04 and expired registration SCO 335.1 0 and requested 
Springer's Towing to my location.

I returned to Oliver's vehicle and informed him of the situation and asked him to call for 
a ride and gather any personal belongings he needs and issued his citation which he 
received a copy of with his court date being 12/05/2019 at 9:00am for MCC#3.

While Oliver was getting items out of his vehicle I noticed Oliver reaching under the 
driver seat and pulling out a silver canister of some kind and putting it in his pocket. I 
grabbed Oliver's arm and asked him what he just put in his pocket and he said nothing, 
and then said it was a pill container. Oliver reached his right hand above the bed of the 
truck and dropped something I then asked where he put the container in which he 
would not answer me. Oliver then said the container has marijuana inside and I then 
requested the K-9 to the stop.

Det. Redfern arrived and while speaking to him about deploying K-9 Ollie I observed 
the silver canister in the bed of the truck. I opened the canister and observed several 
small white colored rock like substances which Oliver stated was crack cocaine. Oliver 
was placed in custody. Ptl. Reed placed Oliver in to hand restraints and did a pat down 
finding chor boy. Ptl. Reed read him his Miranda warnings and placed him in the rear 
of unit #303 and transported Oliver to the station. I completed an inventory of the 
vehicle and listed its items on a tow sheet which a tow truck operator signed and then 
towed the vehicle.

I arrived at station and assisted in the booking process while at station Oliver admitted 
that the chor boy was for smoking the crack cocaine. Jail paper work was typed and 
Oliver was charged with Possession of Drugs (Cocaine) ORC 2925.11 C4A, 
Possession of drug abuse instruments ORC 2925.12, and Obstructing Official 
Business ORC 2921.31 and was transported to the Mahoning County Jail by Ptl. 
Stanton. Oliver is set to appear on 12/05/2019 at 9:00am for MCC#3, the substance 
was logged into evidence.

REPORTING Ptl. Reed #513

At approximately 22:05 hours, on November 27, 2019, I arrived to assist Ptl. Scott on a 
traffic stop in the 500 block of W. Ohio Avenue. Due to the vehicle's registration being 
expired by seven months and the vehicle not having any operable taillights, it was 
decided that the vehicle would be towed.

Upon advising the driver, Oliver C. Yoho, of this, he was asked by Ptl. Scott to step out 
of his vehicle and told that he would be allowed to sit in the back of my patrol car to 
stay warm until his ride could arrive to pick him up or that he would be given a courtesy 
ride to where he was going by one of us.

Once Mr. Yoho stepped out of his truck, I advised him that I would be performing a pat-
down search of his person before placing him in my patrol car. I then performed the 
pat-down, locating a small pocket knife that I advised Yoho that I would keep in my 
possession for the duration of our encounter.  After conducting the pat-down, Yoho 
began rummaging through his vehicle again, with me telling him that for officer safety, 
to not do this and to instead tell Ptl. Scott or I what he wanted out of the vehicle and 
that we would retrieve it for him. Mr. Yoho ignored my request and continued to 
rummage through the truck, with both Ptl. Scott and I noticing him place a silver 
container in his left coat pocket.

When confronted about this, Yoho said that it was for his pills but refused to show it to 
show it to Ptl. Scott and I, with him then stepping back toward the bed of his truck and 
attempting to face away from Ptl. Scott and I. At this point, due to Yoho's non-
compliance, I placed him in handcuffs, which were properly spaced and double locked, 
as well as advised him that he was not under arrest but was being detained due to it 
appearing that he was attempting to hide contraband. I then performed a search of 
Yoho's pockets, not finding the silver pill container that Ptl. Scott and I had seen him 
take out of the truck. Yoho was advised at this point that he was obstructing our 
investigation and could receive additional charges for this. I asked Yoho what was in 
the container, with him then saying "something he smokes" and that he threw it over 
there, saying this while nodding toward the grassy area between the street and 
sidewalk.

K-9 Detective Redfern then arrived on scene and along with Ptl. Scott located the 
silver pill container in the bed of the truck. Mr. Yoho did say at this point that it was 
crack cocaine inside the container. I then walked Yoho back to my patrol car and read 
him his Miranda rights, which he said that he understood. I then removed all of the 
contents from Yoho's pockets, locating a paper bag containing copper wool inside of it, 
which is commonly used as a filtrate to smoke crack. When confronted with this Yoho 
did admit that was what he used it for. Yoho was then taken back to The Sebring 
Police Station where he was charged with one fifth degree felony count of Possession 
of Drugs (ORC 2925.11), one first degree misdemeanor count of Possession of Drug 
Abuse Instruments (ORC 2925.12), and one second degree misdemeanor charge of 
Obstructing Official Business (ORC 2921.31). 

Yoho was then transported to The Mahoning County Jail after he was photographed, 
processed and his DNA collected. Nothing additional to report at this time.

CITED: Paige Gamertsfelder (AGE 22)
2161 Belleflower Dr. Alliance, OH 44601

Suspended Driver License (Non-compliance)     335.073 ORD


On 11/30/2019 at 2:04am, I Ptl. Everhart while in a marked police cruiser was traveling 
South on Johnson Rd. just before the intersection of Georgia Ave. when I observed a 
vehicle also traveling South on Johnson Rd. with no license plate lights. I then ran the 
plates of the vehicle and dispatch advised me that the registered owner had a 
suspended driver license.

The vehicle then made a left onto Georgia Ave. and continued East and I then turned 
onto Georgia Ave. as well and positioned myself behind the vehicle and initiated a 
traffic stop. The vehicle then stopped on Georgia Ave. right at the intersection of S. 
2oth St. The vehicle was a Blue 2010 Ford Fusion bearing Ohio registration HSK9726. 
At this point, I then exited my cruiser and approached the driver side and informed the 
driver of the reason for the stop and requested their driver's license, registration, and 
proof of insurance in which I received the suspended license, the registration and no 
proof of insurance. 

The driver was later identified as Paige Gamertsfelder. There was also a front seat 
passenger later identified as Tyrone Boykin who was also suspended.

While on my initial approach, I could also smell a strong odor of raw marijuana. At this 
point, I asked both individuals if they had recently smoked or had any drugs in the 
vehicle. Tyrone advised me that he has smoked marijuana earlier in the day and Paige 
advised me that there was marijuana in the vehicle in a baggie, in the center console. I 
then had both individuals step out of the vehicle and I then performed a probable 
cause/inventory search. I also at this point advised dispatch to have Springers in route 
to tow the vehicle. 

Upon searching the vehicle, I was able to locate and confiscate the green substance 
that Paige identified as Marijuana. (Upon arrival to the station it was weighed and it 
totaled 4 grams) I then issued Paige a warning for the possession of Marijuana and a 
warning for the license plate light violation but I issued a citation to Paige for a 
Suspended License (Non-Compliance) 335.073 (ORD) and gave her a court date of 
12/05/19 at 9:00am for MCC#3 with a personal appearance required. Once Paige 
signed the citation, I provided her with a copy and I confiscated the marijuana and her 
driver license. Sgt. Kelm then gave both individuals a courtesy transport to 495 W. 
Texas Ave. 

Once Springers arrived to the scene, I then cleared without further incident.

Case No.: 19011201

TRAFFIC
S Johnson Rd near Grandview Cemetery, Sebring, OH

CITED: Troy Foraker 
174 W Oregon Ave, Sebring, OH 44672

OVI (SFST)   ORC 4511.19A1A /  Bond $500.00

OVI (Refusal w/Prior)    ORC 45 11.19A2A    /   Bond $500.00

Left of Center    ORC 4511.29


On 11/30/2019 at 1625 Ptl. Marchionda #507 and myself, Ptl. Peterman #511, initiated 
a traffic stop on S. Johnson Rd. near Grandview Cemetery which resulted in the arrest 
of the driver for OVI.


Ptl. Peterman #511  11/30/2019


I observed a red Jeep traveling north on Johnson road that went left of center, then 
quickly steering and hitting the right edge of the roadway and crossing the white line. 
Patrolman Marchionda initiated the overhead emergency lights and the vehicle 
stopped on the right edge of the roadway. After calling out to dispatch my location, I 
made a drivers side approach to the vehicle. As the driver rolled down the window, I 
immediately was met with an odor of an alcoholic beverage. 

I identified myself, and the reason of the stop for driving left of center to the driver then 
immediately after asked the driver "I smell an odor of an alcoholic beverage, have you 
had anything to drink tonight sir?". The driver, Troy Foraker, stated he "had a couple 
drinks earlier." but did not give a specific time. I asked Troy to shut the vehicle off, and 
to step out of the vehicle. Troy complied, and I asked him to stand at the front of my 
patrol vehicle, and as I walked beside Troy, I noticed a strong odor of an alcoholic 
beverage. 

I had Ptl. Marchionda #507 turn off the front section of the cruisers emergency lights, 
and asked Troy "Do you wear contacts or glasses?", to which Troy stated "no". I asked 
if Troy "had vision difficulties", which Troy also states "no".

I informed Troy I was under suspicion that he was driving under the influence of 
alcohol, and would like to perform a series of Field Sobriety Tests to ensure he was 
okay to drive. Troy complied with my request, and I then began my SFST by placing a 
stimulus 12-15" in front of Troy's nose and slightly above eye level. I began with 
checking Troy's eyes for equal pupil size, as well as equal tracking with smooth 
pursuit. 

Upon observation, troy showed equal pupil size in both eyes, and clues in both eyes 
for lack of smooth pursuit. 

My following test, distinct nystagmus at maximum deviation, I observed clues in both 
Troy's eyes. Onset nystagmus prior to 45 degrees I observed clues in both eyes well 
before 45 degrees. I started the walk and turn test, but before starting noticed a clue of 
being unable to balance during instructions. I also observed Troy stopping several 
times during testing, and using arms to balance himself. The one-leg stand test I 
observed Troy sway while balancing during the instruction and testing phase, and Troy 
using his arms to balance several times throughout the testing phase. 

At the end of my testing, I observed Ptl. Marchionda perform several ARlDE SFST 
tests to Troy, and at the completion, determined Troy was to be placed under arrest for 
OVI, then read his miranda rights. Both officers performed an inventory of Troy's 
vehicle before being towed by Springers Towing.

At arrival to station, troy was read the BMV 2255, and asked to submit to a breath and 
urine test. Troy refused both tests, and a blood sample test. Troy was placed on an 
administrative license suspension for refusal to take breath, urine, and/or blood 
sample. 

Troy was fingerprinted, photographed, and cited for OVI(0RC 4511.19A1a, 
4511.19a2a), and Left of center (SCO 331.05), with a court date of 12/5/2019, MCC #3 
@0900A.M. Troy was given a recognizance form to sign, received a copy of the BMV 
2255, the citation, and the recognizance form. Ptl. Marchionda #507 gave Troy a 
courtesy ride to his residence upon completion. Both officers then cleared.



PTI. Peterman #511
11/30/2019



While patrolling north on S Johnson Rd from US HWY 62 in marked unit #304 with 
Patrolman Peterman, we observed a red jeep in front of us driving erratically. We 
observed the jeep first go left of center into the south bound lane and then go across 
the white line on the edge of the north bound lane. I caught up to the vehicle just north 
of Grandview Cemetery and activated the overhead emergency lights to initiate a 
traffic stop. The vehicle, a red Jeep bearing Ohio registration HNB6267, came to a 
complete stop shortly thereafter. Patrolman Peterman performed a driver side 
approach while I performed a passenger side approach.

While Patrolman Peterman spoke with the driver, I stood by on the passenger side of 
the vehicle and motioned for the driver to roll the window down. The driver, later 
identified as Troy Foraker, unlocked the passenger side door and motioned for me to 
open it. Upon opening the passenger side door, I could immediately smell a strong 
odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from Foraker. Patrolman Peterman and I had 
Foraker turn the ignition off and walk back to marked unit #304.


I turned off the forward emergency lights so Patrolman Peterman could begin 
conducting standardized field sobriety testing (SFST). When asked how much he had 
to drink tonight, Foraker replied he had a couple drinks. Due to traffic beginning to 
build up in both the north and southbound lanes, I was unable to observe Foraker 
while Patrolman Peterman conducted the first portion of horizontal gaze nystagmus. I 
was however able to observe Foraker during maximum deviation and onset prior to 45 
degrees. I observed distinct and sustained nystagmus at maximum deviation as well 
as onset of nystagmus prior to 45 degrees.

Patrolman Peterman continued with SFSTs while I continued to stand by and monitor 
traffic. During the instructional stages, Foraker was swaying back and forth, side to 
side as it appeared he had difficulty maintaining his balance. At the conclusion of 
SFSTs, I took over and began to administer a series of ARlDE SFSTs, for which I am 
certified to perform. I observed lack of convergence in both of Foraker's eyes with his 
left eye having more distinct movement to the outside.

For the modified Romberg test, I instructed Foraker to remain standing with his feet 
touching and hands at his sides. I instructed Foraker to close his eyes, tilt his head 
back and when instructed to do so, count to 30 not out loud by any manner he chose 
to. I instructed Foraker when he was finished, to bring his head forward, open his eyes 
and say "stop."

Utilizing a stopwatch, I instructed Foraker to begin. At first, Foraker counted out loud 
and had to restart the test and reiterate to count to himself. Foraker brought his head 
forward, opened his eyes and said stop. I asked Foraker what he counted to and how 
he got there. Foraker stated he counted to 30 by means of one thousand one, one 
thousand two, etc. At the time Foraker said stop, I stopped the stopwatch and showed 
Foraker it took him 40 seconds to count to 30.

At the conclusion of the ARlDE SFSTs, Patrolman Peterman instructed Foraker to turn 
around and place his hands behind his back. Patrolman Peterman placed Foraker 
under arrest and informed him of the charge, suspicion of operating a motor vehicle 
while impaired and advised him of his Miranda Rights. Foraker was subsequently 
searched for weapons and placed in the backseat of marked unit #304. I requested 
dispatch to summon a tow truck to the scene and proceeded to conduct an 
administrative inventory of the vehicle. A tow truck from Springers arrived on scene 
and removed the vehicle from the roadway.

Patrolman Peterman and I transported Foraker to the SEBRING POLICE STORY for 
processing. Once at the station, Patrolman Peterman removed the handcuffs and 
began to read the BMV 2255 to Foraker. At the conclusion of reading the 2255, 
Foraker refused to submit to breath, urine or blood testing. Foraker's license was 
seized and he was informed he was now under administrative license suspension and 
not allowed to operate a motor vehicle from this point forward.

Foraker was fingerprinted and photographed. Foraker signed the 2255 form, his 
citation (4511.19 A1A OVI SFST, 4511.19 A2A OVI Refusal w/ Prior and 4511.29 Left 
of Center) a recognizance of the accused and provided copies of each. Foraker was 
informed of his mandatory appearance before Mahoning County Court #3 on 
Thursday, December 5,2019 at 0900. Foraker was provided a courtesy transport from 
the station to his residence on W Oregon Ave.

On 11/28/2019 I Ptl. Scott while on patrol in a marked police cruiser observed a vehicle 
backing up in the road way on N. 14th St. and E. Ohio Ave. and when I got closer the 
vehicle parked in front of the gas pump for an extended amount of time.

When the vehicle left the parking lot, I observed it turn on S. 15th St. I followed the 
vehicle and noticed air fresheners hanging from the rearview mirror. I initiated a traffic 
stop on S. 15th St. near the Village limits, the vehicle was a 1996 red Buck 45 bearing 
Ohio registration HUR1512 returning to Mathew Whiteman but no driving record was 
given.

I made contact with the driver which was the registered owner Mathew and informed 
him of the reason for the stop and requested his driver's license, registration, and proof 
of insurance which I only received a Colorado driver's license, dispatch advised me 
Mathew's Colorado driver license was suspended and when Mathew was ran through 
Ohio there was no return, Mathew stated he never obtained a driver's license through 
Ohio just Colorado.

I issued Mathew a traffic citation for driving under suspension SCO 335.07 and gave

officers could search his vehicle. Inside the vehicle a clear bag with "Green Bali" 
written on the bag in black marker was located. The bag contained unknown green in 
colored powder substance was. Mathew stated that it was Kratom Powder which is

11/26/2019


I activated K9 marked patrol cars emergency overhead lights and audible siren, as the 
vehicle bearing temporary tag J066884 came to a stop, hitting the curb, and running it 
over. Det. Redfern #504 and myself, Ptl. Peterman #511, approached the drivers side 
window, and I identified myself, and the reason for the stop being his vehicles reverse 
lights were flashing when his blinkers were on, causing an unsafe condition. 

Det. Redfern was at the passenger side of the vehicle when he noticed an open 
container of alcohol, and I noted a faint odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the 
vehicle. The driver, Eric Saeger, stated he didn't have a license, and then stated "I 
haven't had anything to drink." As I spoke to Eric, I noticed a faint odor of an alcoholic 
beverage coming from Erics breath. I asked Eric to shut the vehicle off, and to step 
out. Eric complied with the request, and exited the vehicle. 

I asked Eric if he had any medical conditions or surgeries, to which he states "I have 
bad knees and a bad hip." I also asked if Eric would want to go through field sobriety 
testing, and Eric consented. we walked in front of the vehicle Eric was operating and I 
began my SFST. I began with smooth tracking and lack of smooth pursuit by placing a 
stimulus 12-15" from Eric's face in front of his nose slightly above eye level. Eric 
showed poor tracking and lack of smooth pursuit. I ensured Eric had equal pupil sizes 
as well. Dinstinct nystagmus at maximum deviation was tested, where both eyes 
showed clues. onset nystagmus prior to 45 degrees was then tested, with clues given 
in each eye. the walk and turn test was given, during instructions Eric was unable to 
keep balance in the starting position. 

Upon starting the walk and turn test Eric stepped off line several times, and was using 
his arms to balance himself. After completion of the walk and turn I had Eric perform 
the one legged stand test. during the instruction portion of the test, Eric was unable to 
keep his balance in the starting position, and during the test swayed while balancing 
himself, used his arms to balance himself, and dropped his foot two times during 
testing.

With the information I obtained during my investigation and SFST, I made the decision 
to place Eric under arrest for suspicion of OVI 4511.19A1a. Eric was transported back 
to station, where he was given an opportunity to provide a breath and blood sample, to 
which Eric consented to. After breath test was given, I transported Eric to Aultman 
Alliance Community Hospital where blood samples were drawn for testing. Eric was 
then transported back to station, where he called for a ride and sign his recognizance 
form, and BMV 2255. Eric was picked up, then I cleared.

On 11/24/2019 I Ptl. Scott initiated a traffic stop that resulted in the arrest of the driver.

Ptl. Scott #505   11/24/2019


As I was traveling north on N. Johnson Rd. near the Precious Cargo day care center 
when I observed a vehicle go left of center multiple times. I activated my emergency 
over head lights in an attempt to make a traffic stop but the vehicle only slowed down 
and continued and crossed over Courtney Rd. and stopped just south of the entrance 
to Sebring Woods and then reversed and then went forward again and then made a 
complete stop. The vehicle was a red 2012 Dodge Avenger bearing Ohio registration 
HTV8993

I approached the driver side of the vehicle I observed the female in the driver seat later 
identified as Kathi Lallie moving around and reaching over in her passenger seat and 
up on her visor. Kathi cracked her window down and I informed her of the reason for 
the traffic stop and requested her driver's license, registration and insurance which she 
gave me her license and a registration card from Michigan and then rolled up her 
window and began reaching in the passenger seat once more.

I knocked on her window repeatedly and asked her to roll it down which she only 
cracked it again and I asked her where she was coming from to which Kathi stated " Im 
going for a drive" I asked her are you coming from home? Kathi replied "What home?" 
Kathi appeared extremely anxious and nervous, I observed Kathi's pupils with 
reasonable light from my flash light and I could see that her pupils where more dilated 
than a person's pupils should be when they are exposed to bright lights. I asked Kathi 
if she had consumed any drugs or narcotics which she said no. Kathi still had the 
vehicle in drive and kept grabbing the steering wheel and turning it, I told Kathi to put 
the vehicle in park to which she did and I had to tell Kathi multiple times to stop 
grabbing and turning the steering wheel.

Kathi had two large dogs in the vehicle with her that showed aggression to me as I 
was standing next to the driver side door talking to Kathi.

Based on Kathi's outlandish behavior and believing she is under thein-fluence of an 
unknown substance I ordered Kathi to exit her vehicle and she said no and that it was 
her right as a citizen to refuse. Sgt. Davis of the Smith Township Police Department 
arrived and so did Ptl. Reed. 

One of the dogs snapped at Ptl. Reed when he was standing next to the vehicle. We 
continually ordered Kathi to exit the vehicle which she rolled all the windows up and 
locked all the doors and refused. I requested assistance from the Alliance Police 
Department due to them having tools to restrain dogs. I also requested the State Patrol 
for stop sticks in case Kathi attempted to flee with her vehicle, the State Patrol was in 
Lisbon and Goshen was requested as well. I advised Kathi that she was under arrest 
and ordered her to exit the vehicle again which she repeatedly refused. 

Kathi then began speaking oddly about things, stating that she never left the house 
and that she was not here and picked up a small urn stating it was her daughter, Kathi 
was displaying signs of loss of reality. Dispatch then advised that Alliance Police had 
dealt with Kathi earlier for her threatening suicide and allegedly having a fire arm. Kathi 
then called 911 because officers where telling her to exit the vehicle which was holding 
up the 911 line for emergencies.

Alliance Ptl. Mark arrived and parked his cruiser to the north west of Kathi's vehicle 
and When Goshen Ptl. Miller arrived he placed stop sticks in the middle of Kathi's 
vehicle. Sgt. Davis managed to manually push down the front passenger side door's 
window. I then used to open part of the window and deployed oleoresin capsicum 
spray on Kathi in an attempt to make her exit the vehicle.

Kathi was affected by the spray and moved to the back of the vehicle and then came 
back to the front of the vehicle. Ptl. Reed then used his collapsible baton and struck 
the driver side window to in an attempt to allow officers to place Kathi in custody.

Kathi then started her vehicle and put it in drive and went around police cruisers 
almost striking officers and fled on N. Johnson traveling south at a high rate of speed. 
Dispatch was notified and I got in my cruiser and pursued Kathi. Kathi turned west on 
Ohio Ave. on Alliance Sebring road which is what Ohio Ave. eventually turns into while 
following and attempting to stop Kathi I looked at my calibrated speedometer and the 
speed of my cruiser was at 85 miles per hour while we where in a 45 mph zone.

Kathi's vehicle was going back in forth from the west bound lane and then went 
completely the oncoming lane. Kathi's vehicle failed to stop at 6 traffic control devices 
while traveling at high rates of speed and then pulled on to a curb lawn at Cambridge 
St. and Hains St. and exited her vehicle and began to run from the scene. I parked 
beside her vehicle and exited my cruiser and deployed my taser aiming at the belt line 
and ordered Kathi to stop which she did not comply, I then deployed my taser which hit 
Kathi and she fell to the ground and rolled on her stomach and Ptl. Reed placed her in 
hand restraints. 

The taser probes where removed by Ptl. Reed and placed into a sharps container.  
Kathi was advised that she was under arrest and was read her Miranda rights and 
placed in the rear of marked unit #303.

Additional Alliance officers arrived on scene as well as a trooper who assisted us with 
the incident.

Kathi was taken to the hospital by Ptl. Reed. Kathi's mother came out of her house 
which was right in front of where Kathi stopped her vehicle and took the dogs out of 
the vehicle. I completed an inventory of the vehicle with the help of a trooper from the 
State Patrol. 

Springer's Towing was called and arrived and towed the vehicle to N. 12th St, in 
Sebring. I cleared the scene and went to Aultman in Alliance to assist Ptl. Reed.

Kathi was cleared for the jail and discharged and was brought back to the police 
department by Ptl. Reed, discharged paper work was obtained by medical staff. Once 
at station paper work was complete and Kathi continued strange behavior stating she 
was not here and that she would not see us, stated that she hears voices and birds 
told her to drink from a bird bath.

Pt. Scott # 505
11/24/2019



At 02:23 hours, on November 24, 2019, I overheard radio traffic from Ptl. Scott, 
advising that he was conducting a traffic stop near the Sebring Woods parking lot on 
Johnson Road. I immediately proceeded to this location, arriving just after Sgt. Davis 
from Smith Township P.D. 

Upon exiting my patrol car, I noticed Ptl. Scott standing at the driver side window of the 
red Dodge Avenger, bearing Ohio registration HTV 8993, and Sgt. Davis standing near 
the front passenger side window. As I approached closer, I noticed that the vehicle had 
two brown pit-bull type dogs inside along with the driver, a white female who appeared 
to be in her thirties. I then positioned myself near the rear passenger side door, where I 
overheard Ptl. Scott ask the driver to step out of the vehicle because he believed that 
she was under the influence of either drugs or alcohol. The driver replied that she was 
not going to get out of that car, that was did not have to, and that it was her right as a 
citizen to refuse.
The driver did however produce an Ohio Driver License that identified her as Kathi M. 
Lallie.

Ptl. Scott began to explain to Lallie that she was legally required to comply with this 
request in an effort to persuade her to cooperate, but she continued to refuse to step 
out of the vehicle. Lallie also began reaching around the car was well as begun to 
repeatedly turn the steering wheel in different directions. At this point it was explained 
to Lallie that if she did not cooperate, the windows to her vehicle would be broken out 
in order to remove her from the car. Lallie continued to refuse to cooperate, instead 
demanding that she be able to see officers' hands because she believed that she was 
in danger. Both Ptl. Scott, Sgt. Davis, and I attempted to gain voluntary compliance 
from Lallie by explaining to her that we did not want to hurt her and that we were 
concerned that if we were forced to physically remove her from her car that her dogs 
would attack us and we would possibly have to taser, pepper spray, or shoot them in 
order to protect ourselves. It was then advised by dispatch that Alliance Police had an 
officer on his way with a noose, should we have to force entry into the vehicle and the 
dogs become aggressive. 

Goshen P.D. also was called to bring stop sticks to place under Lallies tires. Lallie also 
at around this time made a call to 911 on her cell phone, with dispatcher wheeler 
answering.

Several minutes later, both Ptl. Miller from Goshen as well as Ptl. Mark from Alliance 
arrived on scene. Stop Sticks were placed in front of the rear tires to Lallie's car and 
Ptl. Mark stood by with the noose. Ptl. Scott then sprayed O.C. spray into the vehicle 
through a small crack on the passenger side. Lallie appeared to be slightly affected by 
the O.C. but still refused to open the door and step out of the car. Due to Lallie 
continuing to refuse to cooperate, I deployed my baton in an attempt to break out her 
front driver side window. While I was doing this, Lallie placed her car in drive and 
pulled into the parking lot of Sebring woods before beginning southbound on Johnson 
Road. Ptl. Scott, Mark, and I began to pursue, with Scott being the lead vehicle, me 
behind him and Mark behind me. Lallie then turned right onto Alliance-Sebring road, 
with her failing to stop at the traffic control light at the four-way intersection, going 
westbound into Smith township at speeds between 80 and 90 MPH.

Once inside the city limits of Alliance, Lallie went left on Arch Street, traveling 
southbound until coming to Cambridge street where she turned right. Lallie then 
stopped her car near the intersection of W. Cambridge Street and Haines Avenue, 
where she began running toward the porch to a house.

Ptl. Scott then deployed his taser, with one probe striking Lallie on her left thigh and 
the other on the left side of her torso. Lallie immediately fell to the ground. I then 
placed her in hand-cuffs, which were properly spaced and double locked. I then 
conducted a pat-down search of Lallie before removing the taser probes and placing 
her in the back of car 303. While attempting to place her in the back of my patrol car, 
lallie began to physically resist, and did attempt to kick me while I was placing her in 
the back seat. 

Lallie was then taken to Alliance Community Hospital, where she was examined by a 
physician who found nothing medically wrong with her. 

Once discharged, Lallie was brought back to the Sebring Police Station where she was 
processed. Lallie was charged with a felony 3 count of failure to comply with order or 
signal of police officer (ORC 2921.331), a felony 4 count of disrupting public services 
(ORC2909.04), a felony 5 count of Obstructing official business (ORC 2921.31), a 
misdemeanor count of resisting arrest (ORC2921.33), attempting to assault a peace 
officer (ORC 2903.13), Speed (ORC 4511.21) (84 in a 45 zone), OVI 4511. I9 A19), 
Left of center (ORC 4511.29), and failing to obey a traffic control device (ORC 
4511.12). 

After being processed at the police station Lallie was transported to The Mahoning 
County Jail. Her bond total was $16,750.00 and her court date was set for 1:00pm on 
Wednesday November 27,2019, at Mahoning county court #3. Lallies two dogs were 
left with her mother. Nothing additional to report at this time.

11/19/2019


I was on patrol in a marked police cruiser on W. Virginia Ave. traveling east when I 
noticed a vehicle a couple of blocks ahead of me driving erratically, driving left of 
center multiple times. I attempted to catch up to the vehicle but the vehicle turned 
south on N. 12th St. and came to a stop at a red light at the intersection of N. 12th St. 
and E. Ohio Ave. The vehicle then turned west on E. Ohio Ave. and while driving the 
vehicle came close to hitting the curb.

I then activated my emergency over head lights and initiated a traffic stop on E. Ohio 
Ave. and N. 13th St. The vehicle was a whte 2012 Chevrolet four door sedan bearing 
Ohio registration FOH7595. I approached the driver side and made contact with the 
driver later identified as Theresa King. I detected a strong odor of perfume fragrance 
when I spoke to Theresa. I informed her of the reason I had stopped her and 
requested her driver's license, registration, and proof of insurance which Theresa gave 
me.

I asked Theresa where she was coming from and she stated home which she also 
stated was on Homeworth road in Alliance. I asked her why she was W. Virginia Ave. if 
she was traveling home and Theresa changed her story and said that she was on her 
way to an alcoholic's anonymous meeting on Pine Lake Rd. While speaking to 
Theresa I could detect a faint odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the vehicle, I 
asked Theresa if she had consumed any alcoholic beverages prior to operating her 
vehicle and Theresa stated no. I asked Theresa a second time and she stated that she 
had only one beer. I also noticed that next to Theresa's left leg was a burning ash from 
a cigarette burning her seat and she did not notice.

I asked Theresa to exit her vehicle so she could preform field sobriety testing in which 
she agreed to, Ptl. Villanueva arrived to assist at this time. I turned off the front over 
head lights as did Ptl. Villanueva so it would not interfere with sobriety testing. I 
instructed Theresa to stand towards the rear of her vehicle with her hands to her side 
and her feet together while I asked her some questions.

I asked Theresa if she had any medical or physical conditions which she said no, I 
asked Theresa if she took any medication which she said yes for high blood pressure, 
I asked Theresa if she wore corrective lenses which she stated yes, I asked Theresa if 
she could see properly while standing outside of her vehicle which she stated yes. 
Before starting any exercise I checked Theresa's eyes for a resting nystagrnus, equal 
tracking, and equal pupil size, Theresa did not have a resting nystagmus, both of her 
eyes tracked equally, and both of her pupils where of equal size.

The first exercise was the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus, I explained the instructions and 
after doing so I asked Theresa if she understood in which she stated yes, Once the 
exercise began I observed the following clues: Lack of smooth pursuit in both eyes, 
Distinct nystagmus at maximum deviation in both eyes, and onset of nystagmus prior 
to 45 degrees in both eyes.

The next exercise was the Walk and Turn, I instructed Theresa to stand with her arms 
to her side and place her right foot in front of her left foot and to stay in that position 
while I explained the instructions and after doing so I asked Theresa if she understood 
in which she stated yes, Once the exercise began I observed the following clues: Did 
not touch heel to toe, Stepped off of the line, Used arms to balance, and Improper turn.

The next exercise was the One Leg Stand, I instructed Theresa to stand straight up 
with her hands to her side and her feet together while I explained the instructions and 
after doing so I asked Theresa if she understood in which she stated yes, once the 
exercise began I observed the following clues:  Swayed while balancing, Used arms to 
balance, and put foot down three separate times ending the exercise.

Based on the clues gathered from the exercises and my experience I placed Theresa 
in custody for suspicion of OVI and placed her hands in hand restraints and double 
locked them as well as reading her the Miranda rights, I then had Ptl. Villanueva pat 
Theresa down and place her in the rear of marked unit #301. 

An administrative inventory was preformed on the vehicle and all valuable property 
was listed on a tow sheet. Springer's Towing was called to the scene and the tow truck 
driver signed the tow sheet and towed Theresa's vehicle to Springer's on 10 N. 12th 
St. I transported Theresa to the station for processing.

Once back at station I removed Theresa's hand restraints and checked to see if 
Theresa had anything in her mouth which she did not so I started a 20 minute 
observation period. I read Theresa a BMV 2255 forum which she signed and Theresa 
agreed to give a urine sample and a breath sample.

Ptl. Villanueva observed Theresa give the urine sample and brought it into the sample 
to the table in the squad room when Theresa was finished and the appropriate paper 
work was completed and the sample was packaged and placed in the refrigerator in 
the squad room. After the 20 minute observation period was complete Theresa gave a 
breath sample which showed a BrAC = 0.098 which is over the legal limit of 0.08.

Theresa was issued a traffic citation for left of center ORC 451 1.29, OVI(SFST) ORC 
4511.I 9A1a, and OVI(<.17) ORC 4511.19A1d which Theresa signed and was given a 
copy of. Theresa was also given a copy of the BMV 2255 forum and her breath results. 
Theresa signed a recognizance bond of $1,000 for both OVI offenses which she 
signed and was given a copy of. 

Theresa was advised of her mandatory court appearance at Mahoning County Court 
#3 on 11/21/2019 at 9:00am which she acknowledged, Theresa was made aware that 
her court date was also listed on her recognizance forum and her citation. 

Theresa was advised that she was now under administrative license suspension which 
she acknowledged her driver license was confiscated. 

Theresa was then released to a sober and valid driver.

On 11/15/2019 at 1840 I, Ptl. Peterman was dispatched to a vehicular accident with 
entrapment at the intersection of S. Johnson Road and SR 62.

Ptl. Peterman #511


Ptl. Scott, and myself arrvied on scene to see a white ford with the driver entrapped. 
Both officers, and arriving Sebring FD personnel hastily ensured all parties were not 
injured, all stated they were fine. 

I approached the driver side of the white ford to see the driver, Beva Zebrasky, was 
shaken up. Beva stated she was unable to exit the drivers side door because it was 
stuck closed, and so I was able to open the door to assist her out of the car. The 
passenger, Mari Gayler, was also shaken up but stated she was not injured. 

The driver of the silver ford, Laura Hamby, attempted to exit her vehicle, and partially 
stumbled upon exiting. I asked Laura if she was able to walk to my patrol vehicle to 
discuss the accident and noticed a smell of alcoholic beverage coming from her 
person. When we got into my patrol vehicle, I asked Laura if she was wearing her 
seatbelt, to which she stated yes. I also asked what happened to cause the accident, 
Laura states she "was at the light on 62, saw it turn yellow, and just went". As I 
continued the conversation in my patrol vehicle, there became a strong odor of an 
alcoholic beverage. I then had Laura exit my patrol vehicle, and asked if she had any 
medical or surgical issues I would need to be made aware of, to which she states "no". 
I then advised  Laura I could smell an odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from her 
person, and if she had anything to drink. Laura stated "I had two glasses of wine about 
four hours ago". I then advised that I wanted to give a field sobriety test to ensure she 
was okay to drive, to which she consented to. 

As I began my field sobriety test, I immediately noticed clues of lack of smooth pursuit 
and poor tracking in both left, and right eyes. As I started the test of distinct sustained 
nystagmus at maximum deviation, both eyes showed clues, and upon my final test, 
angle of onset prior to 45 degrees, I saw clues in both eyes as well. 

Upon completion of that portion of SFST, Laura stated to me "oh, I have an issue with 
my knee", to which I stated "I will be putting that into account, but why did you not tell 
me earlier?", she stated " I forgot to tell you", to which Ptl. Scott, and myself requested 
assistance of EMS to examine Laura.

After EMS cleared Laura, I attempted to show her the stance for the walk and turn test, 
and she was unable to place her right foot in front of her left foot without stumbling 
over. Laura became slightly agitated at this point, to which I asked "are you refusing 
the walk and turn test?" to which she was refusing to comply with giving me an answer. 
Ptl. Scott, and myself then placed Laura Hamby under arrest for suspicion of OVI 
4511.19. At this point, Laura became belligerent, swinging her arms around. Both 
officers assisted Lauras arms behind her back and placed handcuffs on her arms, as 
well as double locking them and testing for fitment. Laura was placed in the back of my 
patrol vehicle, at which time I took photographic evidence of the scene, then cleared to 
station.

Upon arrival at station, I walked Laura into the squad room, and read the BMV 2255 to 
her as she followed along on a copy I gave her. I stated we could not tell her, or 
convince her whether to take a breath and urine test, or refuse. Laura consented to 
both. after her breath test results, I told Laura the legal limit in the state of Ohio was 
.08 BAC. I then advised Laura she had a breath test result of .192 BAC, and was now 
under arrest for OVI 4511.19 A(1)a, and OVI 4511.19 A(1)h, as well as Failure to yield 
4511.43(A), with an administrative license suspension. Laura then gave DO Wheeler a 
urine sample. Laura was given a recognizance bond to appear in court at MCC#3 
a0900A.M. November 21, 2019.  I then cleared without further incident.



.......................


On 11/15/2019 I Ptl. Scott responded US RT 62 and S. Johnson Rd. for a motor 
vehicle accident with entrapment and injuries. Upon arrival I observed two vehicles in 
the west bound lane, a SUV with front end damage and a sedan with front end 
damage on the right side of the SUV.

Occupants of the SUV where not entrapped and where able to exit the vehicle which is 
when EMS arrived and assessed the individuals for injuries. The driver of the sedan 
was still in the vehicle. Ptl. Peterman had the individual identified as Laura Hamby sit 
in his patrol car with him while he ran her information and asked her if she had any 
injuries which she stated that she did not. Ptl. Peterman stated he detected an odor of 
an alcoholic beverage and asked Laura to submit to field sobriety testing in which she 
did.

I observed the Horizontal gaze nystagmus exercise and I saw multiple clues. Laura 
then complained of pain in her right leg. EMS assessed her and Laura was fine to 
complete the field sobriety. Laura attempted to do the walk and turn exercise but was 
unable to complete and was placed into custody for suspicion of OVI and Ptl. 
Peterman and Sgt. Kelm left the scene to process Laura at station and run a breath 
test. I remained on scene to direct traffic with Ptl. Tousant who arrived to assist since 
the accident was impeding traffic. The State Patrol was called to assist and they drew 
the sketch of the accident.

Springer's Towing arrived on scene and the vehicles where inventoried and towed to 
10 N. 12th St.

The two other individuals from the SUV signed refusals and where released and 
obtained rides home. Once the vehicles where towed and the debris was removed 
from the road way all units cleared. I returned to station and assisted with paper work 
with Ptl. Peterman, Laura blew a BAC of 0.192 received all appropriate paperwork 
including a recognizance bond from Ptl. Peterman and was advised of her court date 
on 11/21/2019 at 9:00am for MCC#3 and was released to her brother.

On 11/11/2019 I was dispatched to a call for service that resulted in an OVI arrest.

Sgt. Kelm #503
11/12/2019


On 11/11/2019 I was dispatched to 126 E. Vermont Ave. for a suspected unoccupied 
suspicious vehicle. Upon arrival I observed the vehicle, a light green in color Chevy 
Trail Blazer (HTG9198) which still had the engine running. I ran the registration which 
came back to Teresa Unkefer, 710 Valley St. Minerva. Upon further investigation I 
observed a male, later identified as Donald L. Unkefer, 710 Valley St. Minerva, 
slumped over in the drivers seat. I knocked on the window to attempt to gain the 
attention of Donald with negative results. I then opened the door which startled Donald 
and he awoke.

I then had Donald step out of the vehicle. While Donald stepped out he began to yell in 
pain and was having trouble standing up. I asked Donald if he needed medical 
attention and he replied that he did not. I then asked Donald where he was headed 
and he replied "the sand and gravel pit". Donald was also mumbling unintelligibly I 
advised Donald he was parked in someones front yard to which he replied "I sure am 
ain't I?". 

At this time Det. Redfem arrived on scene to assist. I was unable to smell the odor of 
alcohol but due to Donald's behavior I determined I would have him conduct 
standardized field sobriety tests to ensure he was able to drive.

I asked Donald if he had any medical problems with his eyes or anything that would 
hinder his ability to complete field sobriety testing and he advised he did not. I then 
began conducting standardized field sobriety test beginning with the horizontal gaze 
nystagmus (HGN). I instructed Donald to stand straight up with his feet together and 
arms at his sides. I then held my pen (black in color) approximately 12 inches from his 
face and asked if he could see the pen and he advised he could. I then asked Donald 
if he could tell me what color my pen was and he replied "white". I then checked for 
resting nystagmus which was not present and ensured both Donald's pupils were of 
equal size. I did observe Donald's right eye to have a crust formed around it and it 
appeared he had a lazy eye. 

I then attempted to check Donald for equal tracking. As I moved my pen Donald's eyes 
were not moving. I advised Donald multiple times to follow the pen with his eyes and 
his eyes only. Donald replied he could still see the pen.

Due to Donald not being able to complete the HGN I then instructed Donald to stand 
with his right foot in front of his left foot heel to toe with his hands down at his sides 
while I demonstrated the walk and turn test. I instructed Donald not to start the test 
until I told him to. I advised Donald to take 9 heel to toe steps and after the 9th step to 
make a series of small steps to turn around to the other direction and take 9 more heel 
to toe steps. I demonstrated so he would understand. 

While giving the directions for the walk and turn Donald used his arms to keep his 
balance and moved his right foot to the side several times. I then told Donald to begin 
the test. Donald stepped off the line several times, did not touch heel to toe, and when 
he was instructed to make a series of small steps to turn around he jumped into the air 
and spun his body around. 

I then advised Donald the last test would be the one leg stand. I instructed Donald to 
stand with his feet together and arms at his sides. I instructed Donald not to start the 
test until he was told to do so. I advised Donald when he was told to start to pick either 
foot and raise it in front of him approximately 6 inches off the ground, toe pointed 
forward, and count one thousand one, one thousand two and so on until told to stop. 
Once Donald began the test he used his arms to balance, and touched his toe to the 
ground several times.

At this time I placed Donald under arrest for OVI. Donald was handcuffed (gapped, and 
double locked) and placed into the rear of unit 302. Det. Redfern then had dispatch call 
for a tow truck. 

Myself and Det. Redfern then began an inventory of the vehicle(see tow sheet). 
Springer's Towing arrived on scene and took the vehicle to 10 N. 12th St. I then 
transported Donald to the station to be processed.

Once at the station, Donald was read the BMV 2255 and he advised he agreed to 
blood, breath, and urine tests. I operated the intoxilyzer which yielded a result of .000 
BAC. Donald advised he was unable to urinate at this time but agreed to a blood draw. 
Ptl. Peterman arrived on shift at this time and transported Donald to Alliance Hospital 
to have his blood drawn. 

Once Ptl. Peterman cleared from the hospital Donald was transported back to the 
station where he gave a urine sample but it was dropped and spilled on the floor. 
Donald was issued a citation for OVI 4511.19A1A, Failure to Control 4511.202, and 
DUS-License Forfeiture 4510.11. Donald's drivers license was also seized due to him 
driving while his license was suspended. Donald was advised of his court date at 
MCC#3 on 11/14/2019 at 0900hrs. Donald was then released on $800 recognizance 
bond and released to his mother Teresa Unkefer.

ARREST REPORT

Criminal / Petty Theft


JUVENILE AGE 17
174 E. Oregon Ave Sebring, OH 44672

Petty Theft (M-1)    2913.02   /   Bond $1,250.00



At 02:14 hours, on November 10, 2019, I was dispatched to Circle K, at 205 E. Ohio 
Avenue, in reference to a shoplifting complaint.

Upon arrival, I made contact with the complainant, Cole Gibbons, who was the clerk on 
duty. Mr. Gibbons advised that a male subject, who he knows to be (JUVENILE), had 
just been in the store and placed what he believed was an Aux cord in his pocket 
before leaving without paying for it. Mr. Cole advised that he was able to very clearly 
see (JUVENILE) place the item in the pocket of his grey hoodie before he left the 
store. Mr. Cole advised that (JUVENILE) was probably now at Eddie Woodley's house. 
Ptl. Scott and I then proceeded to Eddie Woodley's residence, at 174 E. Oregon 
Avenue.

Once there, I made contact with an adult male subject at the front door. In speaking 
with the subject he advised that (JUVENILE) was inside and gave me consent to enter.

Once inside, (JUVENILE) came down from the upstairs area. I asked him if he had just 
been at Circle K, with him saying that he had been. When asked if he had taken 
anything without paying for it he initially denied that he had, but when I informed him 
that I would be going back to watch the security footage of the store, he advised that 
he had stolen a pair of Pug sunglasses. When asked where they were, (JUVENILE) 
picked them up off of a table in the front room and gave them to me. I then advised 
(JUVENILE) that I would be detaining him until it could be determined if Circle K would 
like to pursue charges regarding the matter. After advising (JUVENILE)of this, I placed 
him in handcuffs, which were properly spaced and doubled locked, as well as 
conducted a pat down of his person for weapons. It was then determined by Ptl. Scott 
that staff at Circle K wanted to pursue theft charges in the matter. I then read 
(JUVENILE) his Miranda rights, which he said that he understood, advised him that he 
was now under arrest, and placed him in the back of car 301.

Once back at station, (JUVENILE) was processed and photographed as well as given 
a $1,250.00 own recognizance bond. (JUVENILE) was advised that he will have an 
initial appearance at Mahoning County Court #3 at 9:00am on Thursday, November 
14, 2019. Due to the finger print machine not working, Ptl. Scott advised that he will 
bring (JUVENILE) back to station after his court appearance on Nov 14 and attempt to 
finger print him then. (JUVENILE) was then released from custody.

After releasing (JUVENILE) from custody, I again returned to Circle K to speak with 
Clerk Cole Gibbons. Mr. Gibbons provided me with a voluntary witness statement and 
was able to tell me that the Pug sunglasses that (JUVENILE) had taken were valued at 
$13.99, determining this by using an identical pair that was still on the shelf of the 
store. Cole advised that an assistant manager will be in later in the day and that they 
would be able to say if they wish to have a notice of restriction placed on (JUVENILE).

The sunglasses will be secured in evidence locker #2. Nothing additional to report at 
this time.


Ptl. Reed  #513



At 06:40 hours, on November 10, 2019, I served (JUVENILE) with a notice of 
restriction after it was signed by Ast. manager Brandi Springer.

224 E Oregon Ave, Sebring, OH 44672

Operation of Vehicle at Stop Signs    SCO 331.19


On Friday, November 8, 2019, I,Patrolman Marchionda, was patrolling east on W 
Virginia Ave in the 400 block in marked unit #304. Upon approaching the intersection 
at N 18th St, I observed a red Saturn stopped at the stop sign with the left turn signal 
activated. Before I entered the intersection, the red Saturn turned west onto W Virginia 
Ave in front of me, nearly causing an accident. It should be noted, there are no stop 
signs for east and west bound traffic at W Virginia Ave and N 18th St, only north and 
south bound traffic has a stop sign.

I activated my overhead emergency lights and turned around to initiate a traffic stop.

The red Saturn, bearing Ohio registration HCF8065, came to a complete stop near 436 
W Virginia Ave. Upon establishing contact with the driver, identified as Randall Berger, 
he immediately admitted he was in the wrong and thought I was going to stop at the 
intersection. Berger provided appropriate documentation upon request.

When Berger realized he was receiving a traffic citation, his demeanor began to 
deteriorate and he became agitated. Berger demanded to know why he was receiving 
a citation when he stopped at the stop sign. I informed Berger he was receiving a 
citation because he failed to yield after stopping at the stop sign and that him failing to 
yield could have caused an accident. Berger began to rant about events not related to 
the traffic stop and complain he never receives a break.

Berger was issued traffic citation #031749 for SCO 331.19 Operation of Vehicle at 
Stop Signs and informed of his appearance before Mahoning County Court #3 on 
Thursday, November 21,2019 at 0900. Due to Berger's attitude at this point, a 
signature was not requested and he was informed of two courses of action: File a 
complaint with the Sergeant and/or exercise his constitutional rights and contest the 
ticket on his court date.

On 11/06/2019 at 1043 hours, I, Ptl. Villanueva was stationary on the South looth block 
of Johnson facing South conducting traffic control when I noticed a black in color SUV 
heading North approaching at what I visualized as a higher rate of speed than the 
posted speed. I activated my mounted radar unit and locked a speed of 51 MPH in a 
35 MPH zone. I then activated my emergency lights and conducted a traffic stop who I 
identified as Nicole Foraker of Sebring. I introduced myself and requested her license, 
registration and proof of insurance. Nicole then notified me that she does not have her 
driver's license on her person and that the vehicle is not hers. I asked Nicole who was 
the owner of the vehicle and she told me it was her mother's, Tanna Fisher of Sebring. 

I looked over the information that was provided (Insurance and Registration) and 
notified Nicole that both were not current. She went looking through the glove 
compartment and located the updated version of the registration and handed it to me. I 
asked her if she was on her mother's insurance and she said she was not but she has 
her own. I requested her insurance and she told me she did not have it. I asked if she 
could please provide me her SSN in which she obliged and so I contacted dispatch on 
my personal. Dispatch then notified me that Nicole was suspended and so I requested 
Springer's to come have the car towed.

I approached the vehicle and notified Nicole that her license was suspended and that 
the vehicle had to be towed. I also handed her citation #031500 for ORD 333.03 
Speed (51/35) and ORD 335.07 Driving under Suspension. I told her she had a 
mandatory court date of 11/14/2019 at 0900 hours at MCC #3. She confirmed she 
understood all the information I told her and she signed the citation. I then gave Nicole 
a courtesy ride to her home at 236 Alabama Ave, Sebring so she would not get injured 
from walking on S. 12th street. I then cleared.

Loud Crackling Exhaust    ORD 331.36


On October 28,2019 at 2025 hours, I Ptl. Peterman #511, was patrolling westward 
along Pennsylvania Ave. when I noticed a black colored vehicle traveling S. on 15th 
St., crossing the railroad tracks, with an exceptionally'loud and crackling exhaust. I 
proceeded West along Pennsylvania in an attempt to catch up to the vehicle. 

Upon coming up to the vehicle, I read the license plate to dispatch (HRV 1296), and 
was advised it returned to Christopher Guildoo. Upon initiating my overhead 
emergency lights, and audible siren, I approached the vehicle that was stopped at 555 
W. California Ave. I approached the vehicle, and asked the driver if he was Steven 
Guildoo, as Dispatch advised Steven had a warrant out of Alliance. I was told no, that 
he was Christopher Guildoo. 

At this time K9 det. Redfern showed on scene to assist in my investigation. 

I asked Christopher for his identification, and also to advise him that his exhaust was 
too loud for village ordinance.  Catherine Woods came outside and was asking 
questions about my traffic stop, and I advised Catherine that this was not in reference 
to her, and that she was obstructing an official investigation if she continued. Catherine 
started making comments about my traffic stop, and was again warned by K9 Det. 
Redfern #504 that we were still investigating, and that she would be charged with 
Obstructing Official Business if she were to continue.

Catherine went inside the residence, and returned outside with identification for 
Chstopher.

I ran the license to dispatch, and was told everything was valid, then advised 
Christopher he was going to receive a citation for Loud crackling exhaust (ORD

the vehicle. Christopher failed to obtain valid insurance, and was given a mandatory

Charged: Kylie Lanave (AGE 21)
448 S. 14th Street Sebring, OH 44672

OVI (Suspicion)  4511.19A1a    /   BOND $500.00
OVI (high tier)    4511.19A1h     /   BOND $500.00


October 27, 2019, at 02:08 hours, a female subject called 911 and stated that she had 
crashed her car before hanging up the phone. Upon conducting a welfare check of the 
subject in the 400 block of S. 14th Street, she was arrested for OVI.

October 27, 2019, at 02:08 hours, I was in the dispatch area of the Sebring Police 
Dept. when Dispatcher Wheeler received a 911 call from a female subject who said 
that she had crashed her car before hanging up. Dispatcher Wheeler then called the 
phone number back, making contact with the female subject again, who identified 
herself as Kylie Lanave. Dispatcher Wheeler advised that Lanave said that she had 
been fighting with her boyfriend, that she was at her mother's house, and that 
everything was okay. 

Due to the suspicious nature of the Lanaves call, Ptl. Scott and I decided to check 
Kylies mother's house at 448 S. 14th street to check on her well being. Upon arriving 
at the address, we made contact with the boyfriend of Kylie's mother at the side door 
to the residence, with him advising that Kylie was not there. Ptl. Scott and I noted that 
Kylie's Red Kia was not in the driveway either.

Because it appeared that Kylie was not at her mother's house and she had said that 
she was involved in a fight with her boyfriend, who I know to be a Jake Fullerton who 
lives on W. California Avenue, I began to drive toward his residence while Ptl. Scott 
remained at her mothers. 

Immediately after starting toward Fullerton's house, Ptl. Scott advised that he had 
located Kylie at the front of her mother's residence. 

Upon returning, I found Ptl. Scott standing by the driver side door of a red Kia Rio, 
bearing Ohio registration HLD 2133, which was parked on the grassy area between S. 
14th Street and the sidewalk in front of Kylie's mothers house. As I exited my patrol 
car, I overheard Ptl. Scott telling Kylie to step out of her vehicle. After Kylie exited from 
the driver seat of the vehicle, I noticed the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage 
emanating from her person. When asked if she had been drinking at all, Kylie did say 
that she had been drinking earlier with her mother. Kylie also advised that she had just 
driven home from her boyfriend's house. 

When confronted with what appeared to be fresh damage to the passenger side of her 
car was well as her statements on the phone about having been involved in a crash, 
Kylie said that she was just trying to make her boyfriend worry about her and had not 
crashed her car. I also at this point noticed her keys were still in the vehicles ignition 
and fresh tire tracks were in the yard leading up to the car from 14th street.

Kylie then agreed to perform Standardized Field Sobriety Tests to determine if she 
were impaired. I then instructed Kylie stand straight up with her arms at her side as 
well as instructed her to follow the tip of my finger with her eyes and not to move her 
head while doing so. Upon conducting the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus test, I noted 
equal pupil size and equal tracking in both eyes and no resting nystagmus. In going 
further with the test, I noticed lack of smooth pursuit in both eyes, distinct and 
sustained nystagmus at maximum deviation in both eyes, as well as onset of 
nystagmus prior to 45 degrees in both eyes.

The next test was the walk and turn test. I instructed Kylie to stand with her arms at 
her side and her right foot touching heel to toe with her left foot while I gave her further 
instructions. I also told her not to begin the rest until I advised to do so. Kylie said that 
she understood after having the test explained to her several times. Upon performing 
the test, I noticed that Kylie did not touch heel to toe, as well as stepped of the line on 
multiple instances. It should be noted that the test was conducted on level and flat 
pavement.

After completing the walk and turn test, I gave Kylie instructions on the one leg stand 
test. I instructed Kylie to stand straight up with her arms at her side, and to raise the 
foot of her choice approximately six inches off of the ground and to begin counting out 
loud in a one thousand one, one thousand two, one thousand three manner until told 
to stop. Kylie said that she understood. Upon starting the test, I noticed that Kylie 
swayed while attempting to balance, as well as put her foot down three times, resulting 
in the test being ended. 

Based on Kylie performance on the tests as well as my training and experience, I 
placed her under arrest for suspicion of OVI. Kylie was then placed in handcuffs, which 
were spaced and double locked, before being secured in the back of car 303. I then 
read Kylie her Miranda Rights, with her saying that she understood and wanted to talk 
to me about the incident. Kylie went on to say that she had been drinking with her 
mother earlier in the evening before going to her boyfriend's house on W. California 
Avenue. Kylie went on to say that she had consumed either three beers and two jack 
and cokes or three jack and cokes and two beers, and that she couldn't remember 
which it was. When asked how long she had been sitting in her vehicle before we 
made contact with her, she advised not long, possibly around five minutes.

Once back at station, I read the BMV 2255 form to Kylie with her then signing it. Kylie 
then provided a urine sample, which was monitored by Dispatcher Wheeler. After a 20-
minute observation period a breath sample with was collected by Ptl. Scott as well. 
Kylie's breath sample showed her BAC to be at 0.220. After being fingerprinted and 
photographed, Kylie was given citation #031543 for OVI (ORC4511.19A1A and 
4511.19A1H), due to her BAC being over 0.17. 

Kylie was then given a $1000.00 own recognizance bond and advised of her 
mandatory court appearance at Mahoning county Court 3 on Thursday, October 31, 
2019, at 9:00am. After Kylie left the police station, I checked the area between her 
boyfriend's house and hers for a possible spot that she could have crashed her car 
with none being located. Nothing additional to report at this time.

INCIDENT NUMBER: 19-010132 REPORT DATE: 10/20/2019 17:41:00

On 10/2012019, While responding to a call of service I observed a white and brown pit 
bull mix in the curb lawn of a near by residence. While arriving on scene at the 
McCullough residence at 194 East Virginia Avenue, I observed a dog in front of Betty 
Householder's residence. The dog was going to the bathroom and then went on the 
steps of the Householder's residence. Paying little attention to the dog I was making 
contact at the McCullough's residence I noted that the dog left the Householder's 
residence and came to the McCullough's residence and laid down in the back yard. 
The dog did not have any tags on nor a collar. 

I then made contact with the residents at the McCullough's residence whom advised 
that the dog belonged to Brian McCullough. The residents secured the dog in the 
house. Once I cleared the call I observed no previous dog running at large letters. I 
prepared a letter to be delivered tomorrow. In the mean time I will call the Mahoning 
County Dog Warden tomorrow to check that the dog is properly registered, so in the 
event that the dog is not registered that can be addressed the same time the running 
at large letter is served.



K9 Det. Redfern 504


On 10/22/2019 I spoke to the Mahoning County Dog Wardens office whom advised 
that there is no active registration for Brian McCullough. The dog warden advised that 
there was a expired tag in the system for Rosco, but nothing current. I went to the 
McCullough's residence to speak to Brian whom was not home. Brian's daughter 
Cheyanne was home and advised that she hasn't spoke her dad in a few days and he 
hasn't been home. Cheyanne advised that the dog that was at the residence was 
indeed Rosco. 

A summons for Brian will be drafted to be served.


K9 Det. Redfern 504


On this date Mr. McCullough came to the station and he was served his Order to 
Appear on the 31st of October @0900, MMC#3.

Driving Under Suspension (Noncompliance)     SCO 335.07


On Sunday, October 20,2019, I,Pa trolman Marchionda, was patrolling the west end of 
the village in marked unit #304. While stopped on the south side of N 17th St at W 
Ohio Ave, I observed a green Chevrolet truck, bearing Ohio registration HTG5097, 
stopped at the stop sign on the north side. I performed a random registration check 
through dispatch as I circled my way around onto N 15th St from W Maryland Ave. 
Dispatch relayed the information back as I got behind the vehicle in the downtown 
area, I was informed the registered owner's license status was suspended. Dispatch 
also advised there was a driver license confiscation order out from the registrar.

I activated my overhead emergency lights to initiate a traffic stop and the vehicle came 
to a complete stop on S 15th St at W California Ave. Upon establishing contact with 
the driver, identified as Brandon Thorne, I identified myself and informed him of the 
reason for the stop.

Thorne confirmed he was the registered owner of the vehicle and stated he had driving 
privileges through Columbiana County Municipal court, which he provided. I asked 
dispatch if driving privileges were showing up on LEADS and I was advised they were 
not and that Thorne was under another suspension through Alliance Municipal Court. I 
asked Thorne if he still resided at the address on his license and he stated he did.

I asked Thorne why he was in Sebring and he stated he was at his girlfriend's house, 
an unauthorized trip, which he admitted he knew was unauthorized. Being unable to 
confirm the privileges he presented were current and active through dispatch, I 
advised Thorne he would be cited and his vehicle towed unless he was able to contact 
a valid driver. Thorne stated there was no one he could call that was valid. I notified 
dispatch to summon a tow truck to the scene to tow the vehicle.

Per the confiscation order from the registrar, Thorne's Ohio driver license was 
confiscated. Thorne was issued traffic citation #031744 for SCO 335.07 DUS and 
informed of his mandatory appearance before Mahoning County Court #3 on 
Thursday, October 24,2019 at 0900. Thorne was allowed to retrieve items from the 
vehicle under close supervision and released from the scene on foot. Springer's 
arrived on scene, signed the tow sheet and the vehicle was removed from the 
roadway.

2 Headlights Required   SCO 337.03

On 10/15/2019 at approximately 0335 hours, I (Ptl. Stanton) witnessed a vehicle 
coming east towards me while I was traveling west on Ohio Ave. The vehicle in 
question had one headlight out and I turned my cruiser around and initiated a traffic 
stop. The vehicle pulled into the driveway of 535 W Ohio and I followed it, going 
forward with the traffic stop. 

I made contact with Brian A. Chernikovich who was the driver of the vehicle. I advised 
Brian of the reason for the traffic stop and he was aware his headlight was out stating 
that it blew out while he was driving it tonight. 

I ran Brian through Dispatch since the vehicle did not belong to him and Dispatch 
advised he is suspended through non-compliance. I advised Brian of this and he was 
surprised stating that he was unaware he was suspended. Brian claims he took care of 
everything necessary to become valid and does not know why he is still labeled as 
suspended.

At this time I issued Brian Chernikovich a citation for 2 Headlights Required under the 
Village of Sebring Ordinance 337.03. Citation number #031378. I also issued Brian a 
verbal warning about his suspension, taking into account the holiday weekend. I 
further advised Brian that I am making his court date mandatory, giving him the benefit 
of doubt that he did indeed take care of the suspension. If he did not, I advised he 
would need to take care of it before the court date so he is valid when the ticket is due. 

Brian advised he will not be driving the vehicle and would leave it parked at the 
address of 535 W Ohio, Sebring Ohio 44672. Since the vehicle was already parked 
and is valid at the time of stop I did not tow the vehicle and agreed with Brian to leave 
it at the residence since that is where he would be residing tonight as well.

Brian signed the citation at this time stating he will arrive at the court date of 
10/24/2019 at 0900 hours to clear up the matter of his license.

10/12/2019


Upon arrival we made contact with Michele Morrow and Allen Reed. It should be noted 
that this was the second time in my shift officers were dispatched to this address.

When officers made contact with Michele she advised she was just packing her things 
so she could leave. At this time Michele was being very cooperative, took her dogs to 
her car and was going to leave. Ptl. Everhart and I were standing by until Michele left 
when she got out of her car and advised her brothers were coming right away to pick 
up her belongings. Michele then began to walk toward the house. When Michele 
arrived at the door Allen was standing in the doorway. Michele then grabbed Allen near 
the bicep and pulled him away from the door and shoved him. Michele entered the 
house and began packing her things. I advised Michele that what she had just done 
was considered assault. While Michele was packing Allen was getting agitated and 
advised Michele was taking all of his stuff.

Michele was then advised she was being placed under arrest for assault. Ptl. Everhart 
then placed Michele in handcuffed behind her back double locked and gapped. As Ptl. 
Everhart attempted to maintain control of Michele she pulled away and advised Ptl. 
Everhart to "keep your fucking hands off me". Michele became very irritated and 
advised she needed to call her mother to get her medication.

I asked Michele where her medication was located and she advised it was inside. I 
then advised I could retrieve her medication for her so she could take it with her to the 
jail. Michele advised "I don't want you to touch any of my shit". Once Michele was 
finally placed into cruiser 304 she was transported by Ptl. Everhart to the station for 
processing.

Upon arrival to the station Michele again yelled at Ptl. Everhart to "keep your fucking 
hands off me". Michele also advised she needed medical attention because her blood 
pressure was high. The whole time during processing Michele refused to cooperate 
and would not sit down. Michele also refused to have her picture taken for booking. 

Officers attempted to get a photograph and were able to get a profile photo. While 
standing by for Sebring EMS to arrive Michele accused officers of refusing medical 
treatment. I advised Michele we called for EMS and we were waiting for their arrival.

Once Sebring EMS arrived on scene Ptl. Everhart escorted Michele to the ambulance 
to be assessed. EMS advised they would have to transport Michele to Alliance 
Hospital to be cleared to go to jail. Ptl. Everhart followed the ambulance to the hospital. 
Once cleared Ptl. Everhart responded back to the station to pick up the required 
paperwork for the jail. 

Upon Ptl. Everhart arriving he advised the whole time they were at the hospital Michele 
was very uncooperative and refused to let anyone touch her. Ptl. Everhart then 
transported Michele to MCJC.

disturbance while she was removing personal belongings out of the house. Michele 
advised us that she was getting ready to move out and was removing her belongings. 
Allen then stated to us that Michele was stealing his belongings and that he wanted 
her charged for theft. We then informed Allen that this matter was civil and that there 
was nothing we could do being that we did not know who owned the items or who they 
belonged to.

At this point, while Allen was standing in the doorway, Michele then came down the 
stairs and grabbed Allen's arm near his bicep and pulled him away from the door and 
then shoved him as well. I then told Michele to turn around and I then placed her under 
arrest for Assault and Disorderly conduct with persist. Michele at this point also yelled 
profanity and would not allow me to escort her to my cruiser. 

After getting Michele into the cruiser, I then transported her to the station and upon 
arrival to the station, she advised me that she needed an ambulance because of her 
blood pressure being too high. We then brought Michele into the station and waited 
until Fire/Ems arrived.

Upon arrival of Sebring Fire/Ems, they then checked her out and stated to us that she 
needed to go to the hospital being that she had high blood pressure. Fire/Ems then 
transported her to the Aultman and I then followed them there and stayed there with 
Michele until she was medically cleared to go to MCJ. Once, they cleared Michele, I 
then transported her to MCJ. 

Michele will have a set court date of 10-17-19 @0900 for MCC#3 and she was 
charged with 2917.11A1A Disorderly Conduct with Persist (M4) and also 2903.13A1

headed south to the intersection of Johnson and W. Ohio when I noticed a white SUV 
driving in the middle of the roadway for an extended amount of time ahead of me. 
While the vehicle was still headed South, it began to slow down make a right turn from 
Johnson and W. Ohio when I also witnessed the driver not stop at the 4-way stop. I 
then activated my lights and attempted to stop the vehicle. 

The driver took some time to hear my sirens and notice my lights before finally 
stopping and so I called the plate in and made contact with the driver who I identified 
as Roberta Taylor of Sebring.

I introduced myself and requested her license registration and proof of insurance in 
which she provided. Roberta then asked why she was being stopped in which I 
informed her the reasoning for her stop was for driving in the center of the roadway on 
N. Johnson and failing to stop at the stop sign at Johnson and W. Ohio. I then proceed 
to my cruiser and cite her for Traffic Control Devices ORD 313.01 and Marked Lanes 
ORD 331.08. 

She then begins to argue stating she stopped and then asked what she did exactly. I 
explained to her how she drove heading south on Johnson in the center of the 
roadway up until reaching the intersection and then explained how she slowed to the 
intersection and rolled through it making her right turn onto W. Ohio. I explained the 
citation given with the information of MCC #3 and there will be a court date 10/10/2019

that he did. I could observe that Roy had glossy blood shot eyes, I then asked Roy if 
he
would consent to field sobriety and Roy said yes. 

I asked Roy if he had any medical or physical conditions, or if he takes prescription 
medication and Roy said no.

I had Roy stand straight up with his hands to his side and his feet together while I 
checked his eyes for a resting nystagmus, equal pupil size, and equal tracking. Roy 
did not have a resting nystagmus, both of Roy's eyes tracked equally, and both of 
Roy's pupils were of equal size.

The first test was the horizontal gaze nystagmus and after I explained the instructions I 
asked Roy if he understood and Roy said he did, Once the test began I observed the 
following clues: Lack of smooth pursuit in both eyes, Distinct nystagmus at maximum 
deviation in both eyes, and Onset of nystagmus prior to 45 degrees in both eyes.

The next test was the walk and turn, I instructed Roy to stand straight up with his 
hands to his side and his right foot in front of his left foot and to stay like that while I 
explained the instructions, after the instructions were explained I asked Roy if he 
understood and Roy said yes, Once the test began I observed the following clues: 
Stopped while walking, did not step heel to toe, stepped off of the line, and used arms 
to balance.

The next test was the one leg stand and I instructed Roy to stand straight up with his 
hands to his side and his feet together while I explained the instructions, after the 
instructions were explained I asked Roy if he understood and Roy said yes, once the 
test began I observed the following clues: Swayed while balancing, used arms to 
balance, and put foot town two times.

Trpr. Thomas offered Roy to give a breath sample into a portable breathalyzer and Roy 
did so and the results were a 0.192. Based on the test results and my experience I 
placed Roy in custody for suspicion of OVI and put Roy in hand restrains and put Roy 
in the rear of marked unit #302 and Read him his Miranda rights. The other party was 
released and the two occupants with Roy were not valid and were given a courtesy 
transport by Ptl. Peterman and Stanton in marked unit #304. The vehicle was on 
private property and was not blocking the road or traffic so it was allowed to stay on 
Zep's property.

Roy was transported to station were a 20 minute observation period was performed 
and the BMV 2255 form was read to him with Trpr. Thomas signing as a witness and 
Roy signed. Roy consented to give a breath sample and a urine sample. I collected the 
urine sample and secured it in the refrigerator. After to 20 minute observation period I 
operated the intox 8000 and Roy gave a breath sample with the results being Brac 
0.102 g/210L.

Roy was advised that he was under administrative license suspension and his driver's 
license was confiscated, Roy received a traffic citation for both OVI offenses in which

George. Ptl. Scott arrived on scene to assist me with the traffic stop. Betsi confirmed 
she did not have a valid license and was just leaving her friends house at 595 W Ohio

was requested to remove the vehicle from the roadway. A pre-tow inventory of the 
vehicle was completed prior to the tow. 

During the inventory multiple narcotic related items were located beside and 
underneath the driver's seat. The items were a clear glass smoking pipe with white 
powdery residue, two small broken glass pipes, and a small bag of marijuana. Betsi 
advised she would take the charge for the items and knew they were under her seat. 
Betsi advised her boyfriend Ryan George was on probation out of Stark County and 
did not want him to get in trouble for being in the vehicle with the items. 

Betsi was placed under arrest for possessing drug paraphernalia for the glass pipe. 
Betsi advised she uses it to ingest methamphetamine and tries to hide it from her 
boyfriend.

Springer's arrived on scene and removed the vehicle from the roadway and Betsi was 
transported to headquarters for processing. Betsi was processed and released on her

09/26/2019



While on US Rt. 62 traveling west I observed a vehicle traveling on the opposite side 
of the road go off of the right side of the road. I then performed a U- turn and observed 
the vehicle go left of center and even was in the middle of the road. I then initiated a 
traffic stop on Us. Rt. 62 and S. 12 St.

The vehicle was a 2006 silver KIA 4-S bearing Ohio temporary registration J230591. I 
approached the driver and informed them of the reason for stop and requested the 
driver's license, registration, and insurance in which I received and identified the driver 
as Kai Hoopes. I noticed the odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the vehicle. At 
this time Ptl. Rober arrived on the stop, while on the stop JT verbalized the vehicle did 
smell like alcoholic beverage.

I asked Kai if he had consumed any alcoholic beverages prior to driving in which Kai 
stated no. I requested Kai to exit the car and asked Kai if he would consent to field 
sobriety testing in which he stated that he would. I asked Kai if he had any medical or 
physical conditions or if he was currently on any medication, Kai stated no to all of the 
questions.

I had Kai stand straight up with his feet together and hands to his side and checked his 
eyes for equal tracking, a resting nystagmus, and equal pupil size. Both of Kai's pupils 
were of equal size, both of Kai's eyes tracked equally, and Kai did not have a resting 
nystagmus.

The first test was the horizontal gaze nystagmus, I explained the instructions and 
asked Kai if he understood in which Kai stated that he did. I instructed Kai stand 
straight up with hands to his side and his feet together, when the test began I observed 
the following clues: Lack of smooth pursuit in both eyes, distinct nystagmus at 
maximum deviation in both eyes, and onset of nystagmus prior to 45 degrees.

The next test was the walk and turn, I instructed Kai to stand straight up with his hands 
to his side and his right foot in front of his left foot and to stay in that position until told 
to start while I explained the instructions, Once the instructions were explained I asked 
Kai if he understood and Kai stated that he did. Once the test began I observed the 
following clues: Stopped while walking, did not touch heel to toe, stepped off of line, 
used arms to balance, and improper turn.

The last test was the one leg stand I instructed Kai to stand straight up with his hands 
to his side and his feet together while I explained the instructions, once the instructions 
were explained I asked Kai if he understood and Kai said yes. Once the test began I 
observed the following clues: Swayed while balancing, used arms to balance, and Kai 
put his foot down three separate times ending the test.

Based on the results and my experience I placed Kai into custody for suspicion of OVI 
and put Kai in hand restraints and placed Kai into the rear of marked unit #301 and 
read Kai his Miranda rights.

An inventory of the vehicle was performed and the vehicle was towed to 10 N.12th St. 
by Springer's Towing. Kai was transported to station, Kai was brought to the squad 
room where the restraints were removed and a 20 minute observation period was 
performed. I read the BMV 2255 form to Kai with Ptl. Stanton witnessing. Kai 
consented to a breath and urine sample.

I operated the intoxylizer 8000 and Kai gave a sample of BrAC 0.103 g/210L, Kai was 
then made aware that he was over the legal limit and was notified that he will be 
placed under administrative license suspension. Kai also gave a urine sample which 
was collected by Ptl. Stanton. Kai was processed but was not finger printed due to an 
error in our machine.

Kai received a copy of the BMV 2255 form which he signed, his citation for left of 
center, and both OVI offenses which he signed and a recognizance form which he also 
signed and was notified of his mandatory court appearance on 09/26/2019 at 9:00am

5/4/2019



REPORT DATE: 05/03/2019 21:36:00

On scene at 2143 I, and Ptl. Russel 510 interacted with a Yoich J. Ngiraingas, who 
states he got into an altercation with one of his neighbors from Apartment #12, and he 
pulled out a gun and pointed it at him. Two other witnesses, John Yoho, and Ashley 
Melchor-Arroyo, who reside in Apartment #14 also stated the same. Yoich recalls he 
was standing outside of his apartment, when Ronnie Handy came into the complex 
with company "blaring his sound system". Yoich asked Ronnie if he would "turn down 
the music", at which point Ronnie was quoted as "Becoming irate" with Yoich, and 
approached Yoich as he walked to the front of his vehicle to grab his cigarettes, 
shouting profanities and saying "you're in my bubble",and then proceeded to walk into 
the apartment, then exit it with a towel in hand.

Witnesses and Yoich then state Ronnie unveiled a gun out of the towel, and proceeded 
to point it at Yoich, at which Yoich began shouting "pull the trigger" due to becoming 
frustrated with Ronnie.

Witnesses stated they approached Yoich, and grabbed him to pull him away from the 
situation.

Ronnie at this point was stated running into a silver jeep (license plate #GYE8170), 
and stated they saw the driver, Shannon Browing, driving the vehicle with Matthew 
Billiter as a passenger.

I, and Ptl. Scott 506 visited same address later that evening, and was told by Ashley a 
neighbor in Apartment #11 was receiving texts from Ronnie (in case file). I approached 
the neighbor, and asked to see said texts, to which she obliged. She stated Ronnie 
"wasn't there", and did not know what happened. After getting photographic evidence 
of the conversation, I then advised Yoich and the witnesses to stay in his house. lock 
the doors, and call us if he saw Ronnie at any point in time. I then cleared, but began 
regular patrols through the area.

0221- I was patrolling the Alabama Ave. area, when I spotted the vehicle that matched 
the description of the vehicle that Ronnie fled in. I advised dispatch and Ptl. Scott 506 
of this, and waited for backup since there was a possible firearm involved. 

Upon his arrival, I and Ptl. Scott 506 knocked on the door of Apartment #12, which was 
stated as Ronnie living there, as well as Joseph Henry Saulsberry, who both were 
advised to have multiple warrants. Shannon Browning and Matthew Billiter answered 
the door, and we asked if Ronnie or Joseph were there. They stated they "don't know 
where either of them are", I then asked Shannon if she was operating the vehicle 
Ronnie was seen jumping into at the time of the incident, as she stated "yes i was 
driving". We asked where she took Ronnie to which she said "I don't know where he 
is", and we again asked "you were the one driving?", to which she states again "yes". 
Shannon also stated that "he just came over to the car and said let's go now". 

We advised Shannon if she sees or hears from Ronnie to let us know. We then 
advised dispatch Ronnie or Joseph was not at the residence, then cleared. I am also 
having this turned over to the prosecutor to decide on recommending charges being 
filed.

On 03/05/2019, I was contacted via phone, on station in reference to a scam.

K9 Det. Redfern 504  


On 03/05/2019, I was contacted via phone, on station in reference to a scam. I was 
contacted by Ted lngledue whom advised that he was in contact with Cassidy Wilkes in 
reference to purchasing a cell phone on buy sell trade on facebook. Ted asked 
Cassidy if the phone was able to be used if he puts his sim card in, and she advised if 
he had Verizon, he could. Ted advised that him and Cassidy agreed to meet today to 
buy the phone and the conversation was turned over to her boyfriend Ronald Handy 
III. Ted and Ronald conversated and arranged to meet up to do the exchange of the 
cell phone and $90.00. Ted arrived at the apartment complex on Alabama Avenue and 
Ronald Handy came out from the complex with the cell phone and Ted gave him 
$100.00 in cash and Ronald went back in the house to get $10.00 change. Ted then 
went to Verizon in Salem to get the phone switched to his network and Verizon advised 
that the phones IMEI number was blacklisted indicating that the cell phone was stolen. 
Verizon advised that the phone belongs to Ryan C. Horne. Ted then made contact with 
this department.

I then met up with Ted and obtained a written statement as well as retrieving the 
phone. I made contact via phone with the Verizon store in Salem whom advised that 
the phone had a black listed IMEI number and could not be placed on anyone's 
account.

I attempted to make contact with Ryan Horne, to see if the phone was stolen and when 
I called a male answered the phone and abruptly stated that this was a private number 
and hung the phone up.


As defined in section 2913.01 in the Ohio Revised Code, deception is defined as 
"knowingly deceiving another or causing another to be deceived by any false or 
misleading representation, by withholding information, by preventing another from 
acquiring information, or by any other conduct, act, or omission that creates, confirms, 
or perpetuates a false impression in another, including a false impression as to law, 
value, state of mind, or other objective or subjective fact." Ted bought the phone while 
he was under the impression that the phone was able to be used with just the simple 
task of needing a sim card as long as he had a Verizon account, which the phone did 
indeed have a blacklisted IMEI number due to theft.

Due to the charges being misdemeanor in nature, this case will be sent to Prosecutor 
Tolson for review of charges for Ronald Handy Theft 2913.02 of the $90.00 due to 
Ronald carrying out the transaction and Cassidy Wilkes Complicity to Theft 2923.03, 
for arraigning the sale of the useless phone.


K9 Det. Redfern 504

On 03/26/2019, After several attempts to reach out to Ronald and Cassidy, Prosecutor

and this case will be closed.

9-2-19


....................


The individual later identified as the victim Danielle Reggi, informed me that her ex-
boyfriend later identified as Shawn Carver came to the house though the upstairs 
window and took her phone and started yelling at her about civil issues between the 
two of them. She then stated to me that Shawn also took her car keys and when she 
told him to give back her phone and car keys that he put his hands around her neck 
and also grabbed and pulled her arm hard enough that it caused bruises.

She also informed me that after he grabbed her, he forced her in the basement and 
started throwing items at her. 

Danielle then advised me at this point that Shawn went to the bathroom to take a 
shower and she then left the house because she did not have her phone being that 
Shawn had shattered the phone during the domestic incident. I then asked Danielle to 
show me her injuries and I could clearly see bruises on her left arm. I then asked 
Danielle if Shawn was still at the house and she advised me that he was.

At this point, I then left the station and went to the house located at 376 E. Ohio Ave. I 
also requested a 57 from Smith Township prior to arriving. Upon arrival to the scene 
with Sgt. Davis, we had Danielle open the door and we then checked and searched 
the house for Shawn but we were unable to locate him. Sgt. Davis then cleared and 
checked Ohio Ave. to try and locate Shawn but was not successful. 

I then stayed on scene with Danielle and I took pictures of her injuries and also had 
her fill out a report on the incident. I then had her fill out a Domestic Violence packet as 
well being that she stated to me that she wants charges against Shawn. After 
completing all necessary documentation, I then cleared the scene without further 
incident.

Upon arrival back to the station, I then completed paperwork for Shawn Carvers 
warrant on the charge of Domestic Violence 2919.25 (A) M-1 and Assault 2903.13(A)

On 09/02/2019, I was dispatched to the 300 block of East Ohio Avenue in reference to 
case 19009009/19009003. While on scene I spoke to Danielle Reggi and Patricia 
Caliguire whom advised that the reason for the call stems from the incident yesterday. I 
advised the callers that I was unaware of the events that took place yesterday. Danielle 
advised that Shawn Carver has been doing meth in the house and she found out about 
it and they two broke up. Danielle advised that Shawn moved to his baby's momma's 
house on Indiana Avenue. Danielle advised that due to Shawn moving out she 
changed the locks. Danielle advised that he did however have a few things left at the 
house. Danielle advised that last night Shawn crawled into the window on the second 
floor by putting a ladder on the roof and climbed in through the window. Danielle 
advised that she woke up and he was in her room yelling at her. Danielle advised that 
point Shawn took her by the neck and drug her in the basement. Danielle advised that 
during the struggle she tried to retrieve her cell phone to call 911 and he took her 
phone from her. Danielle advised that while in the basement he threw her on to the 
couch and would not allow her to leave. Danielle advised that when she tried to leave 
the basement he physically grabbed her and threw her on the couch or threw objects 
at her. Danielle advised that this continued for roughly 2 hours. 

Danielle advised that while he was down stairs he broke her phone and smashed it to 
prevent her from calling for help. Danielle advised that she was able to use the dog as 
an excuse and was able to go outside to let the dog out and she ran to the police 
department as Shawn fled with her phone.

I asked Danielle what happened today and she advised that she came home from 
work and she noticed that her house was ransacked and there were objects missing 
from the house. Danielle advised that she walked around to the rear of the house and 
she advised that there was a ladder on a box leading onto the roof. 

Patricia Caliguire advised that she saw Shawn and a female with a black car leaving 
the house today when she was coming from work. Danielle advised that the 
description matches that of his baby's momma who lives in the 300 block of East 
Indiana Avenue.

176 E Oregon Ave, Sebring, OH

Theft (M- 1)  /  ORC 29 13.02  /  BOND $1,250.00


On Monday, August 26, 2019, Patrolman Marchionda was dispatched to the SEBRING 
POLICE STORY reference two complainants wanting to file a theft report. 

Ptl D. Marchionda #507
8.26.2019

Following my arrival, I established contact with the victim, Ryan Call and his mother, 
Christina Hunt, in the lobby of the police station. Call stated on Friday, August 9, 2019, 
he was at Schmid's Sport Bar & Grill and lost his wallet. Call stated on Saturday, 
August 24, 2019, he learned from a friend that Branty Smith found the wallet and stole 
over $500 in cash out of it. Call claims he does not know who Smith is. Call stated he 
informed his mother about what had happened and she contacted Smith directly 
through Facebook messenger.

Hunt provided her phone to show the entire conversation she and Call had with Smith 
on Facebook messenger. The dialogue began on Saturday at 6:31 PM and ended on 
Sunday at 9:09 AM where it appears Smith blocked Hunt's account. Photographs were 
taken of the conversation with Smith admitting to taking the money after trying to lie 
about exactly how much there was. 

Smith claimed the wallet only contained "...15 it was some fives and ones" but 
changed his answer to "Ok there was over 500 ..."

There was never any mention of the other contents of the wallet being taken. It 
appears from the conversation that Smith only took the money and discarded the 
wallet. Call stated his wallet also contained a Huntington Bank debit card, a Capital 
One credit card, his social security card and his identification.

An attempt was made to establish contact with Smith at his residence on E Oregon 
Ave. Smith's mother, Kelly Sweet, came to the door and stated Branty got a job in 
Alliance at Walmart and would not be home until after 3:00 PM. I informed Sweet of 
the accusation against her son and stated I needed to speak with him. Another attempt 
will be made at a later date and time.

This matter will remain open pending further investigation.


Ptl D. Marchionda #507  DATE: 08/26/2019 12:30


.....................



In the days following Monday, August 26, 2019, multiple attempts have been made to 
establish contact with Branty Smith. I have been to his residence multiple times and no 
one answers the door.

I spoke with Smith's mother on at least two occasions and the last time I spoke with 
her she stated I Smith is rarely home. She stated aside from his job at WalMart in 
Alliance, he bounces between Sebring, Alliance and Akron.

The last time I was unable to find Smith, I called the complainant, Ryan Call and asked 
for the contact information of his friend who told him it was Smith that took his wallet. 
Call provided me with a name of Chance Beitler and that he resided somewhere on W 
Oregon Ave. 

A search through CAD showed Beitler living at 485 1/2 W Oregon Ave. On Saturday, 
September 7,2019, I went to that address and attempted to speak with Beitler but it 
appeared no one was home. A phone call was placed to Beitler's phone number 
provided by Call and a voice mail was placed. I have not received a call back from 
Beitler since leaving a voicemail on Saturday.


Given the circumstances, I will be forwarding this report to the prosecutors office for 
review.

On Friday, September 20, 2019, I observed Branty Smith walking out of Mahoning 
County Court #3 and confirmed through dispatch the warrant was still active. I stopped 
Smith in the parking lot and instructed him to walk to my cruiser where he was 
informed of the warrant and subsequently taken into custody. Smith was handcuffed 
behind his back (gapped/double locked), informed of his Mirana Rights and placed into 
the back of marked unit #301. Smith stated he understood his rights and he did not 
want to make a statement.

I transported Smith back to the station and escorted him into the audio and video

warrant, photographed and fingerprinted.

spotted a vehicle traveling directly in front of me with no operational license plate 
lights. As the vehicle made a right turn onto N. 16th, I initiated a traffic stops by 
activating my emergency overhead lights, and audible siren. The vehicle immediately 
pulled over to the side of the road as I positioned myself behind it. I approached the 
vehicle (Black 2004 Ford Truck, License plate #364YWU) and spoke with the 
registered owner, Harry Leroy Clayton III, who stated to me he forgot to renew his 
license and registration. I asked for all of his documents which he produced to me. I 
ran him and his passenger, Kristopher Joseph Michalik, who both had no warrants. 

I then proceeded to advise Harry that he would be receiving a citation for Expired 
License (<6 months), a court date for Sept. 19,2019 that is not mandatory appear, and 
a verbal warning for expired registration, and no license plate lights. 

I then advised Harry he was to drive straight to his residence and park the vehicle until 
he received new registration tags, and renew his license before operating any vehicle. 
After having explained the citation, and having him sign the citation, I cleared.

Receiving Stolen Propety (M-1) ORC 2913.51  


On Sunday, September 1, 2019, ,I,Patrolman Marchionda detained two suspects in 
connection with a shoplifting that occurred in the Village of Beloit.


Ptl D. Marchionda #507
9.1.2019


Dispatch advised a theft had just been committed at Dollar General in Beloit and 
Goshen PD was responding. I was informed through dispatch the suspect's name was 
Michael Sharp and he was last seen leaving the scene on a bike with a pair of shoes 
he took from the store. 

As I was patrolling east on E Ohio Ave in marked unit #301, I observed Sharp and 
another male riding their bikes west on E Ohio Ave near N 12th St. After informing 
dispatch I had eyes on Sharp I was advised to detain Sharp ~ and stand by for Goshen 
PD.

I observed Sharp and the other male circle around the 300 block of E Ohio Ave 
through the alley and subsequently turn into the alley off of N 12th St in between E 
Maryland and E Indiana Ave. I activated my overhead emergency lights, audible siren 
and pulled into the alley behind them. Sharp and the second male stopped 
immediately after I instructed them to. 

I instructed both of them to walk towards my patrol car and place their hands on the 
hood. The second male was later identified as Matthew Thurman. I advised Sharp and 
Thurman they were both detained and an officer from Goshen PD was coming to 
speak with them regarding a matter that occurred in Beloit. I updated dispatch with my 
location and at no time did I ask Sharp or Thurman any questions regarding the theft.

Sharp voluntarily stated he knew what was going on and why they were being 
detained. Sharp kicked off the right shoe he was wearing, nodded to it stating he 
swiped the shoes from Dollar General and proceeded to slide the left shoe off. The 
shoes in question were a pair of black and red ActionFlex men's shoes. Sharp stated 
he knew it was a stupid thing to do and that he should not have done it. I then placed 
Sharp in handcuffs behind his back (gapped/double locked), performed a search of his 
person and secured him in the back of marked unit #301. 

Thurman stated he was at Dollar General with Sharp but was outside the store when 
Sharp took the shoes.

Detective McBride from Goshen Police Department arrived on scene and custody of 
Sharp was exchanged. I informed Detective McBride of the voluntary statements made 
by Sharp regarding the theft. Detective McBride also secured the shoes worn and 
taken by Sharp. Thurman was released from the scene after Detective McBride stated 
he didn't need anything further from him other than his information. 

A state complaint for ORC 2913.51 Receiving stolen property, a misdemeanor of the 
first degree, will be generated and submitted to Mahoning County Court #3 later this 
week.

As I pulled up to the individuals one of them was holding a small child that was only 
wearing a t-shirt and a diaper and had no shoes or socks on. The individuals Jeff 
Tolson and Crystal Wainuskis also called the incident in as I pulled next to them.

I spoke to Jeff and he stated that earlier in the day he saw the child walk down the side 
walk across the street which is the north side on E. Ohio Ave.and then went into the a 
back yard where Jeff stated he followed and then stated her mother Michelle Hall 
found her in the alley behind the house.

Jeff stated to me that this time he was pulling out of his drive way when he saw come 
from behind houses across the street 438 and 430 E. Ohio Ave. and walked toward E. 
Ohio Ave. with no shoes and only in a t-shirt and diaper. Jeff stated to me that he 
observed the child walking in backyards on the south side of E. Ohio Ave. Jeff went on 
to state that the next door neighbor Crystal came out side and picked the child up and 
called the police and stated the mother had not came outside for 5 minutes while after 
the child was picked up.

Crystal stated that she was inside when she noticed someone in her yard and went 
outside to see who it was and it was a child. Crystal stated that her neighbor told her 
he saw a 2 year old running in the streets and told her to call the police.

The mother Michelle Hall came outside and ran across the street toward her child. 
Michelle told me that the little girl was 2 years old and stated that she was inside 
watching her 6 month old baby and the 2 year old while her husband Cody Powell was 
asleep because he works midnights. Michelle stated that her daughter does not 
normally do this and confirmed it did happen earlier in the day and stated that she was 
in the back yard with her baby reading while her daughter was playing in the backyard. 
Michelle stated that she looked up and her daughter was gone and she tried to look for 
her and found the neighbor walking her back to the yard.

her daughter down stairs, stating that her daughter usually follows her. Then Michelle 
stated she gave her baby to Cody and they both went down stairs, Cody was on the 
couch with the baby and Michelle stated that she was cooking dinner and noticed her 
daughter was not around and asked Cody where she was and Cody stated that he did 
not know.

Michelle was detained and placed into hand restraints and then into the rear of marked 
unit #301. 

I spoke to Cody and stated a similar story to Michelle and it was determined that 
Michelle had left the child unattended by leaving her down stairs. Michelle was then 
notified that she is being placed into custody for endangering children.

I then transported Michelle to the station and brought her inside where the hand 
restraints were removed. A computerized criminal history was performed and it was 
fond that Michelle was convicted of endangering children in the past which elevated 
this to felony of the 4th degree. During booking Michelle while being in a well lit room I 
observed her pupils to be very large, when asked about it Michelle did not say 
anything about it.

Michelle was processed and booked and was told her bond amount. Michelle called 
Sly Bail Bonds who came to the station and Michelle paid the amount. A power of 
attorney form was given to me by the bondsman and copies where made. Michelle 
received recognizance form as well which she signed and was given a copy of which 
also has her court date on it which she was advised of.

Officer Ptl. Peterman #511

I exited my patrol vehicle, and approached the citizens to see what the dilemma was. 
Crystal Wainuskis approached Ptl. Scott, and myself stating a child from 437 E. Ohio 
Ave. was running across the road wearing nothing but a t shirt and a diaper on, and no 
parents around. She states this was the second time it happened today.

Another witness, Jeff Tolson, states he was exiting the driveway of his residence, when 
he noticed the child walking across the road with no shoes or socks on, while 
wondering around backyards in the vicinity. Jeff also states Crystal picked the child up, 
and called the police to report the child running around.

At this time Michelle Hall, the child's mother, walks outside looking for her son. We ask 
her if she was looking for her daughter to which she states "yes I am". Ptl. scott stated 
the child ran across Ohio Ave. and could have been struck by a car. I then detained 
Michelle at 18:05 until we had completed our investigation. I ensured the handcuffs 
placed on Michelle were gapped correctly, and double locked, and placed her into Ptl. 
Scotts patrol vehicle.

Ptl. Scott and myself walked up to the residence and knocked on the door to which the 
father, Cody Powell, answered and we asked if he knew his child was walking across 
the street. Cody states he works midnights, and had just woken up to us knocking on 
his door. We made the conclusion to not charge Cody, but Michelle was to be charged 
with endangering children 2919.22(F4), and bonded out with a mandatory court date of 
September 5, 2019 @ 0900A.M.

Obstruction    2921.31   / BOND $1,000.00


On 08/29/2019, I was dispatched to assist the Smith Twp. Police Dept. in reference to 
a endangering case. 

K9 Det. Redfern 504


On 08/29/2019. I was dispatched to assist the Smith Twp. Police Dept. in reference to 
a endangering case. I arrived on location and spoke to Ptl. Caughey and Chief 
Ceresna, whom advised that they located a child in the area of South 12th Street and 
US 62 walking around barefoot. Smith units advised that the child got out of a house in 
Sebring, and wondered into their jurisdiction and advised that this case was ours. 

I contacted Chief Harris whom spoke with Prosecutor Tolson whom advised that this 
would be a Sebring Case. With the parents already there I decided to conduct 
interviews there. I was advised by Smith units that they were advised by the parents 
that the mother was not home during the incident that the father was at home with the 
juvenile and the father was upstairs and when he was upstairs the child escaped the 
house. The father advised that he was searching for the juvenile and couldn't find the 
juvenile so he called the mother who came back to the residence and started looking 
for the juvenile without luck and subsequently came to the department.

I called Children Services and a worker was coming to handle the custody of the 
juvenile.

I called the mother back whom was identified as Shayla Egnor whom started the 
interview off by stating that she lied to the Smith Twp. Officers. Shayla advised that she 
was at her aunts the previous night due to a domestic situation. Shayla advise that she 
went back to the residence to wake up James and get him to work and she discovered 
that the child was gone. Shayla advised that she woke up James and they looked for 
the child with out success and came to the department. 

Shayla advised that she lied to police and to protect James and make it appear as if he 
was not sleeping when he was. 

I obtained a statement. Once the statement was complete I forwarded my findings to 
the Smith units, whom advised that they were filing charges against her for 
falsification.

I then called back the father whom was identified as James Poffenberger. I asked 
James what happened and he advised that he was upstairs and he while he was 
upstairs the child went down stairs to get cereal and never came back up. James 
advised that he then searched for the child and couldn't find him and then called 
Shayla. James advised that Shayla came home and they looked and couldn't find the 
juvenile. James was then advised of the falsification waiver on the front of the 
statement packet and advised he understood it and signed it and proceeded to write 
his statement.

Once complete I attempted to work out the differences in the stories and James stood 
up and put his hands in front of him and said "I'm not doing this. just arrest me 
already." At which point James was placed into custody and placed into cuffs. James 
was read his rights and was sat on the prisoner bench. I radioed for another unit to 
come transport James to station. I called Chief Harris whom was with Prosecutor 
Tolson. The two discussed the charges and it was determined that James was going to 
be charged with F4 Endangering Children, M1 Falsification, and M2 Obstructing. 
James was taken back to our station and Smith units stayed at their station with the

CITED: Dominick Chacon (AGE 22)
2035 S Linden Ave, Sebring, OH 44672

Speed - Over Limits (62/35) SCO 333.03


On Friday, August 30,2019, I, Patrolman Marchionda, was conducting traffic 
enforcement on S Johnson Rd at US-62 in marked unit #304 facing south. I observed 
a white Chevrolet +door sedan turn north onto S Johnson Rd and begin to accelerate 
rapidly. Upon activating my rear mounted radar antenna, I observed a digital readout of 
47 MPH in a marked 35 MPH zone. I observed the vehicle speed increase rapidly from 
47 MPH to 62 MPH just as it cleared the very north end of Grandview Cemetery.

I pulled onto S Johnson Rd and activated my overhead emergency lights, audible siren 
and attempted to catch up with the vehicle. While catching up to the vehicle, Smith 
Township Patrolman Everhart pulled onto S Johnson Rd from the 1200 block with his 
emergency lights and audible siren activated as well. The vehicle, a white Chevrolet 
bearing Ohio registration HAT8249, came to a complete stop in front of Heacock 
Extension.

Patrolman Everhart and I established contact with the driver, identified as Dominick 
Chacon and informed him of the reason for the stop. Chacon apologized and stated he 
did not realize he was not going that fast and claimed he was late for work. Patrolman 
Everhart advised he could smell an odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle. I 
asked Chacon if he had anything in the vehicle that could get him in trouble and if he 
would give us consent to search. Chacon stated he did not have anything in the 
vehicle and granted us consent to search.

Chacon provided his operator's license and vehicle registration upon request but was 
unable to provide valid proof of insurance. Chacon was instructed to exit the vehicle 
while patrolman Everhart conducted the consent search. A cursory pat down of 
Chacon was conducted for weapons. No weapons were felt on Chacon and no 
contraband was discovered during the consent search of the vehicle. 

Chacon was issued traffic citation #031728 for SCO 333.03 Speed - Over Limits 
(62/35) and informed of his mandatory appearance before Mahoning County Court #3 
on Thursday, September 12,2019 at 0900.

At 19:16 hours, on August 30,2019, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked 
unit 303. While southbound in the 100 block South 12th street, I observed a 
northbound red utility truck near the intersection of S. 12th and E. Georgia, that 
appeared to be moving at a speed greater than that of the 35 MPH posted limit. Upon 
activating the front facing antenna to my in-car radar unit, I obtained a locked speed of 
51MPH. Once the red truck passed me, I turned my patrol car around, positioned 
myself behind the truck, activated my overhead emergency lights, and initiated a traffic 
stop. The red Chevrolet utility truck, bearing Ohio Registration PKF 1461 came to a 
stop in the parking lot of Sebring Tire.

I then approached and made contact with the driver, later identified as Gregory Allen 
Miller, by his Ohio Driver License, and informed him of the reason for the stop as well 
as asked him if he was aware of how fast he was going. I also requested his proof of 
insurance and vehicle registration. Mr. Miller advised that he was coming home from 
work and was in a hurry to get home and was not aware of his speed. I also noticed 
Mr. Miller had two children with him, both appearing to be under the ages of eight, and 
with both being properly restrained. 

I then issued Mr. Miller citation #031540, for Sebring Codified Ordnance 333.03 (speed 
51 in a 35MPH zone). It should be noted that the calibration to car 303's radar unit was 
verified at both the start of my shift at 15:00 hours and after issuing Mr. Miller his

Mr. Miller was given a court time and date of 9:00am on Thursday Sept 12,2019, with 
no personal appearance required. Mr. Miller then signed the citation, was given his 
copy, and I cleared from the stop with no further action and nothing additional to report

On 8/31/2019 at 0109 hours Ptl. Scott and myself, Ptl. Peterman, observed a silver 
ford 4-door (bearing license plate # GUD9897) leaving the intersection of 15th and 
Ohio Ave and arrive at the Circle K. Upon exiting the vehicle, Ptl. Scott and one of the 
employees of the establishment observed a smell of marijuana coming from the car 
when the driver exited the vehicle. I could not smell anything due to an issue with my 
sinuses, but observed the individual behaving erratically. 

The man, a black male approx. 5' 10" in height, approached the counter, checked out, 
then reentered into the same vehicle, backed his vehicle up to the gas pump, then gets 
out to fuel the vehicle. He had a confused look when he could not get his credit card to 
work at the gas pump.

We observed for the next several minutes, the same individual walk back into, and out 
of the vehicle several times. The individual then drove his vehicle out of the parking lot 
onto N. 14th St. , and parked the vehicle at one of the 200 N. block residences. Upon 
exiting the vehicle, the subject turned to face us, walked down the sidewalk back onto 
Ohio Ave., and into a residence off of E. Ohio Ave. He repeated this action several 
times, raising both our suspicions that crime was afoot.

I maintained heavier patrol around the area of the vehicles location. Around 0346 
hours, I observed the vehicle in motion, leaving the same Circle K location. I 
approached the vehicle from the rear and activated my emergency overhead lights and 
audible siren. The vehicle stopped at the intersection of N. 18th and W. Ohio Ave. I 
approached the vehicle, and observed a female now operating the vehicle, with the 
same individual who was operating the vehicle earlier that morning in the passenger 
seat. I informed the driver and the passenger who I was, and the reason for the stop. I 
informed the passenger, identified as Dorian Dais, that his actions from earlier were 
very suspicious, and cause for the stop.

The driver, at this time Dayanaira Baldwin, who was the registered owner of the 
vehicle states she was going home. I stated due to the suspicious activities, I was to 
identify everyone in the vehicle. Dorian was on non-compliance suspension. I wrote a 
citation for driving under suspension 335.07 for Dorian Davis, with a mandatory court 
date of 09/05/2019. I gave Dorian a copy of the citation, then cleared.

Ptl. Scott #505
08/25/2019



Upon our arrival I observed two males by a vehicle in the street being Brian Anderson 
and William Mellott. William had his son Shawn in a headlock and Brian was 
attempting to calm Shawn down. I asked them what was going on and William stated 
that his son is drunk and is acting erratic.

Shawn then took his hand and punched William in the back of the head and William 
while still having Shawn in a headlock punched Shawn in the head. I ordered William 
to let Shawn go and he did.

Shawn attempted to continue fighting his father. I then pulled out of my OC spray and 
told them both to stop. Shawn then attempted to rush me and I took him to the ground. 
Shawn was being belligerent and swung his arms around and resisted. I told Shawn to 
stop and at one point Shawn lightly struck me on the right side of my face and then 
pulled back his right arm to strike me a second time. 

Ptl. Peterman got on top of Shawn and I put my hand on Shawn's neck/chest area and 
pushed him toward the ground and we put Shawn on his stomach and attempted to 
hand cuff Shawn. Shawn laid on his hands and we had to force his hands behind his 
back to place him into hand restraints. 

While attempting to put Shawn in the cruiser he gave dead weight and had to be 
carried and refused to get in the cruiser and had to be assisted. Once in the cruiser 
Shawn began to kick and headbutt the divider.

Once back at station Shawn complied while we began paperwork. Shawn stated he 
wanted an ambulance because he was tired so EMT was called and arrived. EMT 
transported Shawn to Altman Alliance where Shawn became belligerent once more 
and threatened staff and Ptl Peterman and Alliance was called to have Shawn put 
back into the cruiser after Shawn had been medically clear.

Ptl. Peterman while on the way back to 40 stated on the radio that Shawn spit in his 
face and him and three Alliance officers where present and assisted Shawn back into 
Ptl. Peterman's cruiser.

Once back at station I called Smith Twp. for a 57 and Ptl. Stanton arrived and assisted 
with placing Shawn into leg shackles. Shawn was charged with DOC w/ persist ORC 
2917.11 M4, 

Obstructing official business ORC 2921.31 M-2,

................ Ptl. Peterman #511


On arrival, I observed two male individuals fighting against a vehicle, one being 
identified as Shawn Mellott who was still inside the drivers rear portion of the vehicle, 
and his father, William Mellott. William had Shawn in a headlock, as I asked why he 
was doing this, told me Shawn was acting very irrational due to his extreme 
intoxication level, and attempted to fight William. Shawn at this time then began 
punching William, closed fists, in his back, head, and groin regions. Ptl. Scott reached 
for his OC spray, and shouted for William to release Shawn so as we could restrain 
him and he complied.

Shawn then quickly approached Ptl. Scott, and I witnessed Shawn punch Ptl. Scott in 
the right side of the face, causing Ptl. Scott to grab Shawn, and escort him to the 
ground to restrain him.

Shawn laid on his back, and began to swing his arms around, shouting obscenities, 
and continued to resist arrest. Shawns father assisted us by laying on him as well, and 
when I asked he move away so I could roll him over onto his stomach he complied. 
William moved away from Shawn, and I quickly turned Shawn over, and laid on his 
lower body, and shouted to Shawn to "stop resisting" and "give to us his hands". 
Shawn continued to guard his hands on his chest, and Ptl. Scott and myself managed 
to break them free and place him in handcuffs. Shawn went dead weight as we 
assisted him to our patrol car, and we had to carry him into Ptl. Scotts cruiser. Shawn, 
while in Ptl. Scotts cruiser, began headbutting the divider, and window. After obtaining 
a witness statement from the father, and we both cleared the scene to return to station 
for jailing paperwork.

Ptl. Scott advised Shawn he would not be going to jail so long as he would calm down. 
Shawn refused to degress his violent attitude, and continued to yell obscenities, and 
threaten Ptl. Scott and myself he would "beat our fucking asses if we took off the 
badge", as Ptl. Scott, in a professional manner and attitude advised Shawn he was in a 
room that was monitored visually, and audibly.

Shawn still continued yelling threats and obscenities towards us until he passed out for 
his intoxicated status. We periodically checked to ensure Shawn was stable. We asked 
Shawn if he needed to see EMS, and he advised "Yeah, I do" , and when we asked 
why, he replied "because im tired". Dispatch radioed EMS to have Shawn transported 
for a medical evaulation.

Upon EMS'S arrival, Shawn calmed down somewhat, and had urinated inside of patrol 
vehicle 304 intentionally, and told no one he had to use the latrine. Shawn was placed 
on a medical transport bed, and transported to Alliance Community Hospital. At the 
hospital, I stood guard at the doorway of Shawns room. Shawn became increasingly 
agitated, yelling "I'd bash everyones heads in here", and continued threatening myself, 
and hospital staff. I called dispatch via my personal cellular device, and asked them to 
send Alliance Police Department to help assist with Shawn once he was discharged.

Shawn berated the Doctor whom was seeing him, and the nurses who entered the 
room to speak to Shawn.

On arrival of Alliance Police, Shawn advised me he was going to use the bathroom. I 
instructed Shawn that the nurse left a urine bottle as to use, and he became very 
frustrated with me, and began moving out of the hospital bed. I stepped in Shawns 
way as to prevent him from being around any staff or patients, and a patrolman of 
Alliance Police told Shawn to sit down. Shawn again refused to follow orders given to 
him, turned to me, and told me he was going to the bathroom. I advised "no, sitdown 
and use the urine bottle left for you". Shawn then placed his hand on my chest and 
pushed on me, I advised him not to do that, and he again placed his hand on my chest 
to push. 

At this time, I placed him in handcuffs again, and Alliance Police assisted in escorting 
Shawn from the building. I signed Shawns medical release papers, then left the 
building.

After exiting the ER sliding doors, Shawn made a comment directed towards 
merturned his head in my direction, and spit onto the right side of my face and cheek. 
We placed Shawn in the back of my cruiser, and I radioed dispatch I would be heading 
back to station, and additional charges will be filed for Assault 2903.13. Arriving at 
station, Shawn began to headbutt the windows, and divider of the cruiser again. Ptl. 
Stanton of Smith Township guarded Shawn while I finished the jailing paperwork.

We then placed Shawn in leg restraints due to his combative behavior.

After I called out to dispatch my mileage, I transported Shawn to Mahoning County 
Jail. I then cleared to station without further incident.

INCIDENT NUMBER: 19-007244 REPORT DATE: 07/30/2019 14:44:00

On 07/30/2019. While in a marked K9 unit coming to work. I was nearly t-boned by an 
ATV at the intersection of South Johnson Road at US-62. I immediately activated my 
emergency flashing lights and audible sirens. I attempted to stop the vehicle on US-62. 
The driver of the ATV was shirtless and the rear passenger had a black shirt on. The 
ATV was an older red possibly a Honda. The rear passenger had black,brown hair and 
the driver had red hair. 

Due to an encounter the previous night with Steven and Christopher Guildoo I was 
able to identify the driver as Christopher Guildoo. Was right on the rear of the ATV as it 
nearly lost control in the intersection of US62 and 12th street. The ATV then proceeded 
in the Highland Memorial Park Cemetery where I deemed that continuing on would 
pose to much risk of serious physical harm to the driver and the passenger of the ATV. 
I terminated the attempt to stop.

While I was clearing the stop Chief Ceresna from the Smith Township Police 
Department requested to meet up after the encounter. I spoke with Chief Ceresna 
whom advised that just prior to that he was in a pursuit/attempt to stop with two ATVs 
and he was able to identify the driver of the Red ATV as Christopher Guildoo. Chief 
Ceresna advised that the other ATV was green in color and he lost them in the woods 
and it matched the physical description of that of the ATV's that was involved in his 
incident. I then cleared with a report.

On 08/01/2019, Prosecutor Tolson approved charges in this case. Warrants will be

On Friday, August 2, 2019, I was notified by dispatch a felony arrest warrant for 
Christopher Guildoo was active out of Mahoning County Court #3. Dispatch also 
advised Guildoo was last scene at his residence on W California Ave in the village. 
After receiving his descriptive information, I proceededto 555 W California Ave and 
observed Guildoo in front of the residence, shirtless, walking around. I was able to 
observe the tattoos on his body that were listed in the description provided by 
dispatch. 

I established contact with Guildoo and informed him he had a felony warrant for his 
arrest out of Mahoning County Court #3 through our police department. Guildoo was 
placed in handcuffs behind his back (gapped/double locked) and subsequently 
searched for weapons and contraband. Although Guildoo was compliant and offered 
no resistance, bystanders and family on scene became agitated, at which point I 
requested additional units to respond for officer safety. I placed Guildoo in the back of 
marked unit #303 and advised him of his Miranda Rights. Guildoo acknowledged his 
Miranda Rights and advised he was not willing to waive them. Smith Township Chief 
Ceresna and Sebring Chief Harris arrived on scene at this time. 

Guildoo was transported back to the Sebring Police Department and escorted into the 
squad room where his handcuffs were removed and allowed to put a shirt on. Now in 
an audio and video recorded room, I read Guildo his rights again and again he stated 
he understood them and stated he was not willing to waive them to make a statement 
or answer questions. 

Guildoo was photographed and released into the custody of Smith Township 
Patrolman Everhart for transport to the Mahoning County Justice Center in 
Youngstown for additional unrelated charges.

Speed (46/25)  / SCO 333.03


At 19:28 hours, on August 10,2019, I was conducting traffic enforcement in marked 
unit 303. While sitting stationary, with my patrol car facing eastbound along the 
roadside on the 400 block of W. California Ave, I observed a dark colored Mazda 
Sedan traveling westbound at a speed that appeared to be higher than that of the 
25MPH limit. 

Upon activating the front facing antenna to my in car radar unit, I obtained a locked 
speed of 46MPH. I then activated my overhead emergency lights, pulled out onto the 
roadway, and initiated g traffic stop on the dark blue Mazda 6, bearing Ohio registration 
HPP 2452.

The vehicle came to a complete stop in front of The Salem Republic Rubber building. I 
then made contact with the male driver, and advised him of the reason for the stop as 
well as asked him for his driver license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance. 
The driver then provided me with the requested documents, with his Ohio Driver 
License identifying him as Nathan M. Comtois. When asked if he was aware of how 
fast he was going, Mr. Comtois stated that he believed he was going 45MPH. I also 
advised Comtois of how dangerous this was, seeing as I noticed he passed a 
pedestrian who was walking down California Avenue at the same time that I locked his 
speed.

After determining that Comtois had a valid driver license and no outstanding warrants, 
I wrote him citation #031539, for Sebring Codified Ordnance 333.03, speed, for going 
46MPH in a marked 25MPH zone. Mr. Comtois was given a mandatory court 
appearance at 9:00am on Thursday, August 22, 2019, at Mahoning County Court #3. 

It should also be noted that the calibration of the in-car radar unit in car #303 was

WARRANT - CRIMINAL

ARREST: Steven Guildoo (AGE 45)
595 W Ohio Ave, Sebring, OH 44672

Receiving Stolen Property / ORC 2913.51A / Bond $1,500.00


On Sunday, August 4, 2019, Patrolman Marchionda was dispatched to the Sebring 
Police Dept to speak with a complainant in the lobby.


Upon arrival, I established contact with the complainant, Christopher Kleinhans. 
Kleinhans produced a black Ignite Audio Mono Block Class D Car Amplifier 4000 
Watts Peak Power and stated he swiped it from a table at a residence on W California 
Ave claiming it was his. Kleinhans stated last month, his car broke down in 
Columbiana County and had to leave it at 2309 Westville Lake Rd. Kleinhans 
continued that when he returned to retrieve his vehicle a few days later, he discovered 
it had been broken into and several items stolen. Kleinhans stated he filed a report 
with the Columbiana County SheriWs Office on July 31, 2019.

Dispatch made contact with CCSO who faxed the report to our station. The report from 
CCSO shows Kleinhans stated the property taken was numerous misc. hand tools, a 
2200 RPM DeWalt power drill, two AMPS and 2 sub woofers, a Kenwood CD player 
along with other misc. property. The report from CCSO did not contain any serial 
numbers or additional information. 

I informed Kleinhans that without proper documentation depicting serial numbers, for 
all I knew the amp he brought into the station could be anybody's. Kleinhans became 
frustrated and argumentative stating he saw other property belonging to him at the 
house he took the amp from. Kleinhans turned the amp over to show the underside 
where 5 circular cushions had been affixed claiming the amps do not come like this, 
that he installed them himself.

I asked Kleinhans if he could be more specific about the house and he stated its where 
Steven Guildoo lives. I asked Kleinhans he needed to produce proper documentation 
with serial numbers in order for the investigation to go forward. Kleinhans stated he 
had the boxes and documentation from Amazon at his residence on W Virginia Ave. I 
advised Kleinhans I would be securing the amp he brought into the station as 
evidence. After Kleinhans left the station, I secured the amp and placed it in the audio 
and video recorded squad room.

I proceeded to Kleinhans residence on W Virginia Ave where I observed him loading 
several Amazon boxes into his car to bring to the station. The boxes from Amazon had 
tracking and shipping labels still affixed to them with Kleinhans' name and address. I 
removed the merchandise boxes from the Amazon boxes and photographed the 
barcodes, serial numbers and product descriptions. I asked Kleinhan if he had any 
other documentation for the other property he claimed he saw at the house on W 
California Ave. Kleinhan stated the Kenwood CD player came with the car and he did 
not have paperwork for it. Kleinhan stated most of the tools were given to him by his 
cousin who according to Kleinhans, is now in jail.

Kleinhans provided a voluntary written statement stating he found his property in 
Sebring at a yard sale on California and grabbed one of the pieces to bring to the 
station. Kleinhans stated it was "Steve Gildoo" (Sic) who picked him up in Columbiana 
County when his car broke down. Kleinhans believes "Gildoo" went back to where his 
car was parked and took his stuff. 

Kleinhans inquired about getting his stuff back and I informed him I cannot guarantee 
he will get everything back. With the speaker descriptions and serial numbers, I 
cleared from W Virginia Ave and proceeded to 555 W California Ave. 

Following my arrival at 555 W California Ave, I established contact with Christopher 
Guildoo and his girlfriend, Catherine Woods. I informed Christopher and Catherine I 
was there as part of a stolen property investigation and if I could take a look around as 
I had received information that some of the property may be contained within their yard 
sale. Christopher and Catherine gave me consent to come further onto their property 
and check the items they had out for their yard sale. I informed Christopher and 
Catherine at any time, they could tell me to leave. I asked if they noticed anything 
missing from the yard sale and neither of them acknowledged anything missing.

I observed a large compartment containing two 'Boss Audio System' speakers sitting 
on a table in the driveway. Kleinhans described such a compartment containing two 
speakers and the boxes I photographed at his residence belonged to 'Boss Audio 
System' speakers. It was at this time, Steven Guildoo came out of the residence and I 
asked Christopher or Steven if they could take one of the speakers out so I can see 
the serial number. Steven removed one of the speakers and I photographed the serial 
number 'ZI.Pl29DC 190100216.' I thanked Christopher and Steven for their help and 
cleared.

After reviewing the photographs I took at Kleinhans' residence, I noticed I was missing 
one of the boxes and the serial number did not match the box I had photographed. I 
proceeded back to Kleinhans' residence and asked him to show me all of the boxes 
again. Kleinhans produced another 'Boss Audio Systems' box with a serial number 'Z1 
.P129DC 190100216.
 
After verifying the speaker serial number at 555 W California Ave matched the one on 
the box at Kleinhans residence, I went back to W California Ave.

Upon arrival, I asked Christopher and Steven if either one of them was willing to come 
back to the station to provide a voluntary statement. I advised they were not under 
arrest or detained. Christopher acted as if he did not know where the speaker 
compartment came from and Steven looked at Christopher and said something about 
receiving it on a trade from some guy. Steven and Christopher declined to come to the 
station to make a statement. I then confiscated the speaker compartment containing 
the two speakers and secured them in the trunk of marked unit #303.

Once back at the station, I placed the speaker compartment on the desk in the squad 
room. In good faith, I removed the second speaker from the compartment to check the 
serial number and observed the serial number to be 'Z1 .PI 29DC 1903001 11 .' The 
serial number on the second speaker matched the other box I photographed at 
Kleinhans residence. The amp and speaker compartment were logged, photographed 
and all photographs taken were uploaded to a department computer. The Ignite Audio 
Mono Block Class D Car Amplifier 4000 Watts Peak Power was secured in evidence 
locker #2 and the speaker compartment containing the two 'Boss Audio System' sub 
woofer speakers was secured in K9 Detective Redfern's office due to its large size until 
the evidence officer can relocate it to the evidence room.

Another attempt to obtain statements from Christopher and Steven will be made at a 
later date.

On Monday, August 5, 2019, I established contact with Christopher Guildoo at his 
residence, 555 W California Ave. I advised Christopher he was not under arrest nor 
was he being detained and asked him if he was willing to answer questions. I informed 
Christopher of his Miranda Rights and asked if he understood them. He stated he did 
and stated he was willing to answer questions. I retrieved a statement form and read 
Christopher his rights again, which he understood and signed a Miranda Rights waiver.

In his statement, Christopher wrote he was under the impression that Jerry Carter's 
son, Jake, brought the stolen 12" sub woofer speakers to the house on a trade with his 
brother Steve last week.

Christopher wrote he had no involvement in the speakers being brought to the house 
and was not certain if his brother was. Christopher initialed all answers and signed the 
statement. Back at the station, a check of Mahoning County Jail records both online 
and on the phone with a deputy shows Jacob Carter was booked into jail in May and 
released this morning for transport to prison.

I went back to 555 W California Ave and informed Christopher of this and advised him 
he was committing falsification for the statement he provided. Christopher admitted he 
was not home when the sub speakers were brought to his house so he could not 
technically see who brought them. I asked Christopher who told him Jake brought the 
stolen sub woofer speakers to his house and Christopher states his brother, Steve, told 
him. Christopher provided his initials and signature for the additional answers 
provided.

On Sunday, Steven had already conveyed he was not willing to make a statement. I 
attempted to make contact with Steven at a residence I was informed he was living at. 
Following my arrival at 595 W. Ohio Ave, I knocked several times and yelled into an 
open window. Nobody answered and nobody came to the door.


This case will be forwarded to the prosecutors office for the approval of an arrest 
warrant for Steven Guildoo for ORC 2913.51A Receiving stolen property, a 
misdemeanor of the first degree.

An arrest warrant for Steven Guildoo for ORC 2913.51A Receiving stolen property, a 
misdemeanor of the first degree, has been approved by the prosecutor's office. A state

After obtaining the arrest warrant from the clerk of courts, Patrolman Brindack and I

Upon arrival, we established contact with Steven and I informed him there was a 
warrant for his arrest for receiving stolen property and subsequently took him into 
custody. Steven was cooperative and did not resist at anytime. Steven was placed in 
handcuffs behind his back (gapped/doublelocked) and informed of his Miranda Rights. 
Steven stated he understood his rights after being asked.

as if these actions occurred because the police were involved in the dog running at 
large.		
	
After the statement was obtained, Ptl. Rober and I went over to speak with James and 
James was immediately confrontational. James started yelling obscenities and was 
extremely disrespectful to officers. I advised James that was going to be placed under 
arrest. At this point James became combative and placed his beer on the ground and 
started to square up while clenching his fists at officers. I request Alliance Police 
Department for a greater officer presence. Amanda stood in between officers and 
James and had James go in the house. I ordered James to stay outside while I could 
get his side of the story. James was not interested and just wanted to scream and yell. 

Alliance arrived and at this point James calmed down and said if you're going to arrest 
me go ahead and	placed his hands behind his back. James was then taken into 
custody and placed in the rear of Smith Twp. Cruiser. Amanda advised that if her 
husband was gong to jail she wanted to file charges against Brian. I advised Amanda 
that I was not taking a report to retaliate due to her husband getting arrested. I read 
James his rights and then cleared. Smith Twp. transported James back to the station.	
	
James was processed and transported to the Mahoning County Jail.

On 08/01/2019, I was dispatched to the 700 block of West Ohio Avenue in reference to 
a fire complaint I was advised that a subject whom was in the 700 block of West Ohio 
who was given	permission to burn was burning furniture in the back yard While I 
was enroute I was advised by Chief Anderson via radio that there was no need for 
police to respond-that the issue was being addressed I copied that information as I 
was pulling up on scene.
	
I got out of my car to speak with Chief Anderson in reference to the event and 
observed a beagle who was on the south side of the road run across the street nearly 
getting struck by two vehicles, Chief Anderson prevented the small dog from getting hit 
by warning the motorists of the dog The dog started to go down the drive way of 806 
West Ohio Avenue I proceeded down the drive way and found a male standing in the 
driveway. Chief Anderson was behind me as I got the males attention I asked the male 
if this beagle was his dog since it was running around in yards across the street and 
the male advised that it was indeed his. 

The male whom was obviously intoxicated was immediately	offended and triggered by 
question and immediately became aggressive in nature The male started	saying that 
the department needed to worry about drugs and speeders versus peoples dogs 
running around The male then started to verbally attack Chief Anderson and 
demanded to know who he was and what his role in the event was Chief Anderson 
advised that he was just trying to find the owner of the dog that he prevented from 
being hit on the road. Chief Anderson started to walk back up the driveway as the male 
continued to scream and yell at him I advised the male that he needed to stop yelling 
at him he was just trying to prevent his dog from getting hit. 

The male then started to yell	profane words at the Fire Chief and I once more I then 
requested the males ID card The male then went into his garage and got his ID. The 
male then gave me his ID as his wife came out. The male was identified as James 
Kaminski of that address and his wife was identified as Amanda Kaminski also of the 
same address. 

James continued to scream and yell obscenities at the Chief and I several times after 
being ordered to cease and desist. Due to the commotion it was noted that several	
passerby and neighbors started to stop cars and take notice of the event. I advised the 
male that he was going to be cited for this event and going to be charged with 
Disorderly Conduct with persist. I advised James that he would be served with a 
summons at a later time once it was drafted. I started to proceed up the drive way as 
both James and Amanda started yelling at the Fire Chief and I. 

I then	cleared the scene with out incident with intentions of serving a citation.

At 1:01 am I Ptl. Scott was traveling east on US RT 62 when I observed a vehicle 
traveling west that appeared to be traveling at a high rate of speed. I activated marked 
unit #303's mounted radar unit and observed a digital reading of 67mph while in a 
55mph zone. I preformed a U-turn and activated my overhead lights and attempted to 
stop the vehicle which turned onto S. Johnson just north of US RT 62 and came to a 
complete stop.

I exited my cruiser and made contact with the driver and informed the driver for the 
reason for the stop I immediately could detect a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage I 
asked the driver if they had consumed any alcoholic beverages in which the driver 
stated 2 drinks they had in Youngstown I requested their driver's license, registration, 
and proof of insurance in which I received all but proof of insurance.

I returned to my cruiser and ran the individual and he was identified as Bradley R Etto I 
returned to the driver's vehicle and asked him to step out and asked him again how 
many beverages he consumed and he changed the number to 3 and then four. 
Bradley told me his activities through out the whole day and changed that story 
multiple times as well I asked Bradley if he would consent to field sobriety in which he 
stated yes I asked Bradley if he had any medical or physical conditions Bradley said 
no. I asked Bradley if he had any difficulty with his vision or his balance in which 
Bradley stated no.

I then checked Bradley's eyes for a resting nystagmus, equal tracking, and equal pupil 
size. Bradley did not have a resting nystagmus, both of Bradley's eyes tracked equally, 
and both of Bradley's pupils were of equal size.

I then had Bradley stand straight up with his feet together while I gave him the 
instructions for the first test which was the horizontal gaze nystagmus, Once I gave 
them I asked Bradley if he understood which he stated he did. Once the test began I 
observed the following clues: Lack smooth pursuit in both eyes, Distinct nystagmus at 
maximum deviation in both eyes, and Onset of nystagmus prior to 45 degrees in both 
eyes.

The next test was the walk and turn and I instructed Bradley to stand straight up with 
his hands to his side and his right foot in front his left foot and to stay in that position 
until I instructed him otherwise. While giving instructions Bradley stepped out of the 
position and had to be told to get back into it. Once I gave the instructions I asked 
Bradley if he understood in which Bradley stated that he did. Once the test began I 
observed the following clues: Stopped while walking.

The next test was the one leg stand and I had Bradley stand straight up with his hands 
to his side and his feet together while I gave him the instructions. Once I gave Bradley 
the instructions I asked him if he understood which Bradley stated that he did, once the 
test began I observed the following clues: Sways while balancing, uses arms to 
balance, put foot down twice.

Bradley also provided a road side breath test through a portable breathalyzer which 
displayed a 0.143 BAC. Based on the test results and my experience I placed Bradley 
in custody for suspicion of OVI and read him his Miranda rights. I restrained Bradley 
behind the back with hand restraints and placed him in the back of marked unit #303. I 
called for a tow truck and Sgt. Davis from the Smith Twp. police dept. stood by for the 
tow while I transported Bradley to station with Sg,. Kelm following. The vehicle was 
towed to 10 N. 12th St.	

Once on station I read Bradley the BMV 2255 form with Sgt. Kelm witnessing. Bradley 
consented to a breath test on station as well as a urine sample. After a 20 minute 
observation period Bradley gave a breath sample with the results being BAC 0.110 
g/210L. Sgt Kelm collected the urine sample.
		
Bradley was photographed and fingerprinted and was issued a traffic citation for speed 
ORC4511.21, 0Vl(SFST)4511.19A1a, and OVI (<.17) 0RC4511.A1d. Bradley was

INCIDENT NUMBER: 19-007187 REPORT DATE: 07/23/2019 21:30:00

On 07/23/2019, this department received information that a male with a warrant and a 
stolen vehicle was at the Oak Ridge Motel. I requested dispatch to run the Darrell 
Williams via LEADS to see if the he was wanted. I was advised by dispatch that there 
was an active warrant through Wayne County for dangerous drugs and it was a pick up 
of 2. Dispatch then called Wayne County whom advised that if we came in contact with 
Darrell that they would sent a detainer to the Mahoning County Jail. I then requested 
Ptl. Rober from Smith Twp. to assist with the warrant. Units confirmed with the staff at 
the motel that Darrell was at the room and rented it. The staff advised that Darrell was 
walking around in the parking lot then went into the room with a female. The staff then 
confirmed that Darrell has not came out. 

With the cruisers parked on the side of the building, units then went to the room and 
attempted to make contact. I knocked on the door several times then I heard a "click" 
assuming that it was the deadbolt. I then instructed Ptl. Roberto stay and cover the 
front and I was going to attempt the rear and see if he was coming out through the 
window. I then went to the rear of the window and saw through the blinds a male and a 
female crawling into the bathroom looking through the window. 

I then asked dispatch to send me a photograph of Darrell so I could get a positive 
confirmation that it was indeed the male that I was able to visualize through the 
window. I then also asked dispatch to confirm as to if the warrant was a felony or 
misdemeanor in nature. I received notification that the warrant was a felony warrant. 
Once the photo was received and I was able to make certain that the male I saw 
through the window was indeed Darrell, I made the decision that we would be making 
entry into the motel room. I then called for another unit from Goshen to assist with 
making entry. 

It was brought to my attention that Alliance may have a better response time. I then 
agreed and requested Alliance. Moments later Alliance Police were on scene and I 
was advised that Sgt. Kelm was on his way from station with the ram. At that point I 
then went to the window again to get anther look and Darrell and a female were in the 
bathroom. It appeared as if there were surrounding the toilet in the restroom. Moments 
later I heard the door to the hotel room being beaten in. There was several commands 
by officers announcing who they were and ordering the occupants to the ground. 

Once Ptl. Rober confirmed that the suspects were in custody I went to the front of the 
building. And observed that Darrell Williams was being detained on Wayne Counties 
warrant. Ptl. Tallman from Alliance PD read both Darrell and the unidentified female 
their rights while on POV body cam. After they were read their rights Darrel advised 
that officers could look around that he had nothing to hide. Officers then started 
searching. Ptl. Rober identified the female was Nichole Phillis of Alliance. 

I went to the bathroom and located a green bag in the bathroom in a pair of pants. I 
looked in the bag and found syringe caps, a metal spoon, and several glass pipes with 
white residue on them. Also in the bag was two small crystals. I asked the Darrell and 
Nichole what the crystals were and they both replied it was Meth. Both parties were 
separated and placed in separate cruisers. Darrell advised that he would not answer 
the door because he assumed the knocking at the door was his girlfriend Delia 
Thompson whom owned the van. Darrell then advised that he didn't open the door 
because he never heard the knocking because he was in the shower. 

I then went and spoke to Nichole whom was in another cruiser. Nichole advised that 
they were laying in bed when they heard the knock. Nichole advised that Darrell 
advised her to not speak and to go into the bathroom and advised that it was probably 
the police since he had warrants for his arrest. Darrell then took her to the bathroom 
and deadlocked the door. Nichole advised that she observed and knew that Darrell 
had a baggie of meth that he bought just prior to going to the hotel. Nichole advised 
that when Darrell ran into the bathroom he either hurried and used the meth, or he 
flushed it. Nichole advised that she was not 100% sure what he did but Darrell got rid 
of it just prior to the police making entry into the room. 

The evidence was seized and secured into my cruiser. Delia Thompson arrived on 
location and advised that it was her van that was sitting in the parking lot. Delia 
advised that on July 20th Darrell took the van without her permission and that she 
called the police to make a report. Delia advised that it was stolen and she wanted it 
back. I asked Delia for a consent search of the van and she consented while on 
Alliance PD's POV cam.  Officers searched the van.  A statement was obtained from 
Nichole and Delia.  Dilia secured her van and Nichole and Darrell were taken to 
station. 

Once at the station Nichole was given an OR bond in the amount of $5000. Nichole 
was charged with Aggravated Possession of Drugs F4 and two counts of Possession 
of Drug Abuse Instruments M1. Nichole was fingerprinted, photographed, and DNA 
swabbed. Nichole was then released with a court date of 07/25/2019 at 0900 at 
MCC#3. Darrell was then processed on the charges of Tampering with Evidence F3, 
Aggravated Possession of Drugs F5, two counts of Drug Abuse Instruments M1, and 
Obstructing official business M2. 

Darrell was photographed, and taken to the Mahoning County Justice Center on a 
$15,000 Bond and was given a court date of 07/25/2019 at 0900 at MCC#3. This case 
will be closed.

Following my arrival, I established contact with the caller, Paul Freer, who later 
introduced me to Mariann Mannion and David Carlile. It had been brought to Mannion 
and Carlile's attention that some prescription narcotics had gone missing and they 
immediately began an internal investigation.

Mannion stated nursing staff reported a partial prescription packet containing 
hydrocodonelibu 7.51200mg missing. 

According to Mannion, these packets come in two cards, each containing 30 
doses/pills. Mannion stated the card missing in particular, was started on May 28, 2019 
and the corresponding count sheet is also missing. The second card card was started 
on June 6,2019 at 8:00 PM although according to records, there should have been 10 
pills remaining in the missing card.

Mannion stated the missing pills came to light this past Saturday when nursing staff 
attempted to reorder the prescription and were notified by the pharmacy that it was too 
early to reorder. Mannion stated during the course of the internal investigation this 
morning, one of the nurses questioned had falsely documented medication 
administration on days where she was not working. This was corroborated by copies of 
her time card provided by human resources. According to the count sheet provided, 
Joellen Hull documented medication administration on May 13, 2019 through May 18, 
2019 consecutively. However, according to the time card provided, Hull was not 
scheduled nor clocked in on May 15th and May 16th. The times corresponding to 
when Hull documented the administration, do not match with times she normally 
administers medication.

According to a statement provided by Carlile, when Hull was questioned regarding the 
missing pills, she "was very nervous and had been shaking." Mannion stated Hull was 
sent home as a part of the internal investigation process and that Crandall Medical 
Center would be terminating her employment for falsifying medical documents. 
Mannion informed me as a part of the reporting protocol, the state requires a police 
report be submitted. I advised Mannion a report would be generated and immediately 
following supervisory approval, they could obtain a copy for their records as well as the 
state. A photograph of what one of these cards was taken as a reference and will be 
uploaded on station.

This case will be open pending further investigation.

On Thursday, June 27, 2019, I followed up with Mariann Mannion who advised Joellen 
Hull was terminated this week: Mannion stated she placed several phone calls to Hull's 
residence to no avail and was granted authorization by Human Resources to terminate 
her via voicemail. I will attempt to establish contact with Hull via phone to set up a time 
for her to come in for questioning. If phoning her is unsuccessful, an attempt will be 
made at her place of residence in Alliance.

I attempted to phone Hull with the call going to voicemail. I advised Hull via voicemail 
to contact the SEBRING POLICE DEPARTMENT as soon as possible. If she fails to 
contact the police department, a home visit will be attempted.

On Friday, June 28, 2019, I established contact with Joellen Hull at her residence on 
Cenfield St NE in Stark County. I asked Hull if she had received the voicemail I left for 
her or the voicemail left by Crandall Medical Center. Hull claimed she never received 
any calls and never received any voicemails. I asked Hull if she could come down to 
the SEBRING POLICE DEPARTMENT to answer some questions to which she stated 
would.

Hull arrived at the SEBRING POLICE DEPARTMENT and was escorted into the audio 
and video recorded squad room. I informed Hull she was not under arrest, she was not 
being detained and she was free to leave under her own will at any time. I informed 
Hull of her Miranda Rights and asked if she understood them. Hull stated she 
understood her rights. I asked Hull if she was willing to answer questions to which she 
stated she did not want to answer any questions without a lawyer present. 

I informed Hull she was free to leave and escorted her back out to the lobby.

This case will be forwarded to Prosecutor Tolson for approval of an arrest warrant for 
ORC 2913.02 Theft of Drugs, a felony of the fourth degree.

15 Walnut St. Hubbard, OH 44425

Speed 35/25  /  SCO 333.03 

Driver License Required  /  SCO 335.01



At approximately 21:08 hours, on July 15,2019, I was conducting traffic enforcement in 
marked unit 303. While traveling eastbound on W. California Avenue in front of the 
American Legion, I observed a dark colored Chevrolet Cobalt traveling westbound on 
California Avenue, near S. 1 7Ih street, at what appeared to be a speed higher than 
that of the posted 25 MPH limit. Upon activating my front facing incar radar unit, I 
obtained a locked speed of 35MPH in the clearly marked 25 MPH zone. Once the 
vehicle passed by mine, I activated my overhead emergency lights, turned my patrol 
car around in the United Die parking lot, and initiated a traffic stop on the Blue Cobalt, 
bearing Ohio registration HTG 8806. The Cobalt then came to a stop directly in front of 
the American Legion building.

I then approached the vehicle and made contact with the driver, Damecka R. Wilkins, 
as well as her adult passenger, Konner Shields. Upon asking for her driver license, 
vehicle registration, and insurance, Damecka advised that she did not have a driver 
license but did have a temporary permit, which she did not have on her. I then asked if 
Konner had a valid driver license, with him advising me that he did not.

Upon being advised that she was required to have a licensed driver with her seeing as 
she only had an instruction permit, Damecka stated that she believed that since he 
was over 18, she was allowed to drive with hlm in the vehicle. Damecka then produced 
her vehicle registration but no proof of insurance. Konner later advised me that they 
did not have insurance on the vehicle but planned to get it by July 25th, due to their 
already having a court date at that time.

I then confirmed through dispatch that although Damecka did have a valid temporary 
Permit, Konner did not have a valid driver license. I then issue Damecka citation 
#031538, for Sebring Codified Ordnance 333.03, speed, 35 in a 25 zone, as well as 
Sebring Codified Ordnance 335.01, operator license required.

Damecka was advised of her mandatory court appearance at Mahoning County Court 
No. 3 on Thursday, July 25,2019, at 9:00am. Damecka was able to get Jacob 
Fullerton, who is a licensed driver, in order to drive the vehicle to his house in lieu of 
my having the vehicle towed. I then cleared from the stop with nothng additional to

The vehicle then made another left hand turn onto Ohio Ave. and I then initiated a 
traffic stop. The vehicle then stopped and pulled over to the side of the road next to the 
Sebring Fire Station. The vehicle was a Black 2004 Jeep Cherokee bearing Ohio 
registration HCF7778. I then exited my cruiser and approached the driver side and 
informed the driver of the reason for the stop and requested their driver's license, 
registration, and proof of insurance in which I received valid registration, but no proof 
of insurance and a suspended license. The driver was later identified as Matthew 
Adams. I also received a valid ID card from the passenger later identified as Steven 
Percy.

At this point, Ptl. Brindack, Ptl. Scott and Ptl. Peterman arrived to the scene as well. I 
then informed them of the situation and told them to have both suspects step out of the 
vehicle being that I was going to tow it after writing up the citation. During the 
administrative inventory search performed by Ptl. Brindack and Ptl. Scott, baggies with 
a white substance was found in the center console by Ptl. Brindack. The driver 
Matthew Adams then admitted that it was Meth and that it was his. After his admission, 
I then contacted Sgt. Kelm and with input from Sgt. Kelm it was determined because 
Matthew admitted that it was Meth that we could charge him without sending the drugs 
to the lab. I then called for a tow and filled out the tow slip for Springers.

At this point, Matthew was then placed under arrest and was then placed in the back of 
unit 301. We then advised the passenger Steven Percy that he was free to leave as 
well. Springers then arrived to the scene to tow the vehicle and we then cleared the 
scene. Upon arrival to the station, I filled out all necessary documentation so that Ptl. 
Peterman could transport Matthew to MCJ. I also took pictures of Matthew and also 
logged all the baggies of the white powdered substance with evidence tags. Ptl. 
Peterman then transported Matthew to MCJ. Matthew was charged with Drug 
Possession 2925.111 (ORC) and was also cited for a Suspended License 335.07 
(ORD) and Turn Signal Required 337.30 (ORD).

On 07/07/19 I assisted Ptl. Everhart on a DUS stop. On arrival Ptl Everhart advised he 
was going to be towing the vehicle, Ptl. Scott arrived shortly after and we began and 
administrative inventory of the vehicle. Ptl. Scott and myself began inventorying the 
vehicle when I noticed an ash tray in the center console, I looked down the hole of the 
ashtray and notice small plastic bags inside, I opened the ash tray and found several 
bags containing a white crystal substance that Ptl. Scott and I believed to be Meth, I 
asked the driver of the car Matthew Adams what was in the bags and he admitted to 
me it was meth. Evidence was gathered, the vehicle was towed and Matthew was

When we approached the scene, I exited my vehicle, and approached the passenger, 
Steven Percy II, to which at this time was asked by Ptl. Everhart to exit the vehicle. I 
patted down Steven for weapons, to which none were on his person. 

The driver of the vehicle, Matthew Adams, was brought over for me to discuss about 
the events while Pt;. Brindack and Ptl. Everhart were performing an inventory of the 
vehicle Matthew was operating. Ptl. Brindack then came across several small baggies 
of a white substance, and when asked whos it was, Matthew responded with "Its 
mine". Ptl. Brindack asked Matthew what the white substance was, and Matthew 
responded "Its meth". Matthew was then placed under detainment at this time, and a

criminal 
127 E Florida

ARREST: Derek Rinehart AGE 26
127 E Florida Ave

DOC  /  2917.11 / BOND $500.00



On 07/03/2019, While on scene for a call of service, Units were dispatched to the 100 
block of East Florida Avenue in reference to an active domestic with weapons. As units 
were pulling up to the scene, dispatch advised that they currently have the victim on 
the line stating that he is actively getting assaulted and he just locked himself in the 
bathroom. 

As units were relayed this information I observed the alleged aggressor sitting in her 
car getting out of her vehicle walking over to us. I spoke to the female whom I knew to 
be that of Kathleen Rinehart. Kathleen advised that her grandson Derek is in the 
house going crazy beating himself in the head. Also outside in a separate vehicle was 
David Rinehart and his female friend Lori. Units went into the residence and spoke to 
Derek about the event. Derek appeared to be worked up, but did not appear to have 
any obvious injuries. Derek pointed to a piece of wood that was sitting by the door that 
had rusted nails, screws, and staples sticking out of it. Derek advised that his 
grandmother Kathleen was beating him with the board, and then she dropped it and 
started punching him in the face. 

I went out and spoke with Kathleen whom advised that Derek just came home and he's 
been gone for a few days and he just started going crazy. Kathleen advised that Derek 
started going through her purse and when she caught him he took her cell phone and 
ran into the bathroom banging his head against the wall. 

Derek was brought outside of the residence and was presented with a statement. 
Derek advised that he wanted to file DV charges and he wanted Kathleen to go to jail. I 
advised Ptl. Brindack to get a statement and a DV packet started. I then obtained a 
statement from Kathleen. I then spoke to Lori and asked her what she seen happen 
and she advised that they pulled up a few moments prior to police arrival and saw 
Kathleen sitting in her car and she was not in the house. Lori refused to provide a 
statement advising that she didn't want involved. Once statements were completed, 
the physical evidence did not support that a DV took place. There were no indications 
that Derek was assaulted with a board let alone one with rusted nails, screws, and 
staples in it. Furthermore there was no indications that Kathleen punched Derek in the 
face like he claimed. Kathleen is known to be on blood thinners and bruises rather 
easily and there are no signs of tissue bruising on Kathleen's hands. 

Derek was then taken into custody for Disorderly Conduct. Derek was then taken back 
to the station and processed. Derek was then given an OR bond in the amount of $500 
and given a day of 07/11/2019 at 0900 at MCC#3.
