On 15 Oct 19 Sgt. Holbert began an investigation in reference to alleged juvenile criminal activity.  This investigation was determined to be unfounded.

On 15 Oct 19 Deputy Schwendeman filed charges for being an unruly juvenile on a 13-year-old female and 14-year-old female through Washington County Juvenile Court.

On 18 Oct 19 Deputy Hall responded to Stow It Storage, Clifton Road, Little Hocking, to a breaking and entering at that location.  This case remains under investigation at this time.

On 18 Oct 19 Deputy Schwendeman responded to 615 Dalzell Road, Whipple, Ohio, to a report of Alexander M. Craig being under the influence of something and acting “crazy” at the residence.  Craig was observed yelling and screaming about different topics which did not make any sense. Deputy Schwendeman was able to get Craig to speak with him, however, he was unable to maintain a direct line of conversation. While attempting to speak with Craig, he pulled a small cellophane baggie out of his pocket and handed it to me, saying it was his “medication”. There were two small crystalline rocks in the baggie, which appeared to be methamphetamine. Alexander admitted to using methamphetamine and marijuana that night and said the bag contained methamphetamine.  Alexander Murphy Craig, age 23, was placed under arrest and charged with possession of a controlled substance.  Craig was transported to the Washington County Jail for processing.

On 19 Oct 19 Lt. Hunter and Deputy Hall were dispatched to meet with Erin Hendrickson at the Dale Community Church on State Route 676 at the Washington / Morgan County line.  It was reported that an incident of domestic violence occurred at 15 Mercer Road.   Erin reported the previous night her husband, Brandon, attempted to choke her out with his arms after an argument between the two.  Erin states she was awakened the next day by  Brandon yelling and screaming at her again about the same topic.  Erin stated Brandon told her he would, “beat the brakes off of her” which she believed he would do. Erin then left the residence and called for law enforcement assistance.  Contact was made with Brandon who admitted to only having an argument with Erin the night before and nothing more. Brandon denied ever physically touching Erin.  Brandon Mathew Hendrickson, age 32, 318 Reynolds Lane, Vincent, OH, was placed under arrest for domestic violence and transported to the Washington County Jail.
