On 8 Feb 19 Deputy H Tornes requested a summons be issued for Michael Smith, 715 Barclay Street, Lot 32, Belpre, OH, for cruelty to companion animals.  On 31 Jan 19 Deputy Tornes received notification of two stray dogs that were found running in and out of traffic in the Belpre area.  These dogs were taken to HSOV and were photographed and posted on social media asking for the community to assist in identifying the owners.   Notification was made to Deputy Tornes that the individual who had found the dogs running in and out of traffic, was indeed the owner of the dogs.  After investigating the case further, Deputy Tornes met with Smith who denied owning the dogs, stating he had the dogs in his possession for less than a 25 hour period.  Smith became extremely irate that subjects were stating that he owned the dogs. It was determined after the investigation was conducted that Smith would be summoned into court.

On 2 Feb 19 while Deputy Tornes was at HSOV, Mount Tom Road, she was advised that a vehicle driven by Travis Drake had just struck a parked vehicle in the lot and drove off.  Attempted contact with Drake met with negative results. Drake later returned a call to Deputy Tornes and was asked about the incident at HSOV.  Drake was advised to meet with Deputy Tornes in order to get the information needed for the other vehicle owner, however Drake failed to do so. A summons is being requested for Travis Drake, age 41, 222 Valley Mills Circle, Parkersburg, WV, for failing to stop after a private property crash.
