On 18 Oct 17 Deputy Parks was patrolling the area of State Route 339, Waterford, when she observed a red in color Chevy truck bearing Ohio registration travelling from Milner Road at State Route 339.  The driver committed a traffic violation upon turning onto State Route 339.  Deputy Parks continued on behind the vehicle and observed the vehicle cross the center line while on the bridge entering into Beverly.  The vehicle then turned and continued north on State Route 339 where once again the vehicle travelled left of center.  A traffic stop was initiated and upon approaching the vehicle the driver was identified as Dalton Matthew Ball.  Ball provided a valid operator’s license and registration.  Deputy Parks spoke with Ball about his vehicle containing a lot of personal property and he advised he had been evicted from his home and was in the process of moving.  Ball also advised he had multiple firearms in the vehicle and granted permission to search the vehicle and check the weapons to confirm they were not stolen.  Ball advised all of the weapons were his.   Deputy Parks began a search of the passenger compartment and located several rifles and muzzleloaders in the rear seat. The first rifle was a 22 caliber CZ bolt action rifle, which was found to be loaded with cartridges in the magazine and the bolt in the open position.  Deputy Parks made the firearm safe at that time.  All weapons in the vehicle were checked and none of them came back as stolen.  Also located in the vehicle was a pair of brass knuckles on the driver’s side floor, within immediate reach of Ball.  Ball was advised of his Miranda Rights and he continued speaking with Deputies.  Ball acknowledged the rifle was in the vehicle and he had not unloaded it after squirrel hunting.  Ball also acknowledged the brass knuckles were in the vehicle as well.  Ball stated that his crossing the center line was due to his vehicle needing an alignment.   Dalton Matthew Ball, age 19, 571 Swift Road, Waterford, was placed under arrest for improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle along with carrying a concealed weapon.  Ball was transported to the Washington County Jail for processing.
