Public Information on Incidents, Arrests and MORE
October 21 LCSO investigation a domestic disturbance in Wheeling. The parties were gone from the area upon arrival.
October 25 LCSO began investigation into computer theft and fraud where a rural resident fell for an email about a billing and call their "customer service number". Our victim was conned into allowing the person on the phone access to their computer and logged into online banking. The victim was swindled out of over $19,000 dollars. More than likely this scam involved people overseas and that is where the money ended up without any possibility of identifying or capturing the criminals.
October 27 LCSO completed in-depth investigation of alleged harassment/false reporting by a citizen on attempt to obtain protection order on a CPD officer. The order was not granted by the court as the petitioner did not appear at the hearing. Various officer statement(s), police reports, camera footage and the application for protection order are included in the investigation file.
November 01 about 4:50 p.m. LCSO was dispatched to assist the Chillicothe PD on a felony fugitive being in Chillicothe and a pursuit was initiated by CPD. This ended in the Ludlow area and the female allegedly ingested drug(s), including reported fentanyl which caused her to become non-responsive. Officers began CPR and used multiple doses of NARCAN on the suspect and were finally able to get the person breathing. Ambulance arrived and CPD guarded the female at HMC and took custody of evidence. Female was soon air lifted to a Kansas City area hospital where she remains. A male was taken into custody at the scene and later released by CPD. Good job by all involved. See Chillicothe PD for full press release.
