Domestic Assault reported to have taken place on Liv 216 on July 21, 2013.  Investigation shows reporting victim requested no prosecution.  A report will be submitted to the prosecuting attorney for consideration.


We recently assisted the CPD with a report of attempted kidnapping.  The on duty deputy first heard the dispatch of attempted assault in Chillicothe and one of the officers advising to look for a small black car with the trunk lid tied down.  The deputy soon located the car east bound on U.S. 36 and saw the vehicle was speeding and aggressively driving and endangering others on the roadway.  The deputy initiated a pursuit which was terminated near Medicine Creek due to an extremely heavy down pour of rain which drastically hindered the officer’s vision.  The Deputy continued at a much slower pace and saw the vehicle had turned north into Wheeling.  Avoiding a high speed chase through Wheeling the deputy waited until north of the city limits to reengage in the chase.  The deputy could tell the car was occupied by 3 men and was able to obtain at least part of the license plate.  The suspect vehicle ended up in a field north several miles north of Wheeling and drove to a gravel road, the car then reached speeds of over 80 mph on the gravel roads and the pursuit was again terminated and a sudden down pour then reached that area.  We are continuing on this investigation with the CPD as this was believed to have been tied in with their emergency call.  We have collected additional evidence from citizens and/or other motorists in that area.


On July 21 we began an investigation of a residential burglary and theft of property from the home.  Stolen were several checks on Chillicothe State Bank, a computer printer, 2 firearms being a .22 caliber rifle and 12 gauge shotgun, and several shotgun shells.  Investigation continues.


July 19 we investigated a report of possible child neglect/abuse at a location in Utica.  Division of Family Services assisted us in the investigation and the parent(s) moved the child(ren) to a different location pending further review.  Report will be forwarded to the prosecuting attorney for consideration of charge(s).

July 24 we began an investigation of possible animal abuse/neglect after a Wheeling resident reported shooting a dog which was being aggressive toward him on his property.  Investigation continues.
