On 3 Aug 17 while on patrol Deputy Hall observed a white Ford Ranger pick-up truck at the intersection of McGill Rd and State Route 339, Dunham Township. The vehicle was stopped at the stop sign and as I approached the vehicle it pulled out into oncoming traffic almost causing an accident.  A traffic stop was conducted finding the registered owner to be Darlene K. Stone, age 73, 13228 State Route 555, Cutler.  The driver of the vehicle was identified as a 16-year-old, who did not have an operator’s license. Stone was contacted via public service and she advised that the child did not have a license, however, she allowed him to drive the vehicle.  A summons is being requested for Stone for permitting a minor to operate a vehicle without a license.  A traffic citation was issued to the juvenile for driving without a license, and failure to yield right of way.

On 3 Aug 17 Stacie Heiss, 2721 Rainbow Road, Lowell, reported they had left their Norwegian Elk Hound puppy out to use the bathroom and later discovered the dog was missing.  Heiss began posting the missing dog via social media and was advised of a location of the missing animal.  Deputies met with Kylee Leann Morris, age 24, 9575 State Route 339, Vincent, about the puppy she had in her possession.  Morris initially reported the dog was given to her brother, and that the dog was inside the residence.  Morris then stated that she found the dog on 27 Jul 17 on Olloch Hill Rd in Lowell.  Morris stated she was advised by several people that Stacie Heiss was claiming this was her dog.  During the investigation, it was learned that Morris lied about the date she located the dog and that it was actually located on 1 Aug 17.  It was learned that Stacie Heiss attempted to get the dog back from Morris but was told the dog was no longer with her and that Morris did not live at the 9575 State Route 339 address.  Morris continued to lie to Deputy Hall in reference to where and how she obtained the dog in an attempt to keep the dog. It was eventually ascertained through pictures from the victim as well as witness accounts that the dog rightfully belonged to Stacie Heiss.  Deputy Hall is requesting a summons be issued for Kylee L Morris for theft.
