WCSO NEWS RELEASES FOR 3 JAN 2020


On 31 Dec 19 at approximately 2040 hrs. Deputy Brown was patrolling I-77 near State Route 821 when he observed a vehicle pulled over with the emergency flashers activated and stopped to check on the subjects. Deputy Brown observed a female on the passenger side of the vehicle knelt down urinating. Deputy Brown identified the female as Jamie R. Lehman, who had an odor of alcohol about her person.  Lehman had slurred speech and was swaying while standing. Lehman agreed to complete standard field sobriety testing, to which she performed poorly on. Lehman admitted to drinking “one beer” when asked about her consumption.  Lehman submitted to a portable breathalyzer test with the results being .085.  Jamie R. Lehman, age 48, 101 Jefferson Street, Zanesville, OH, was placed under arrest for OVI and transported to the Washington County Jail.

On 31 Dec 19 at approximately 1230 hrs. Deputy Brown responded to 312 Lawton Avenue, Marietta, OH, to a report of a missing person.  It was reported that Nathaniel Becker was missing, and hadn’t been seen since 30 Dec 19.  Becker’s mother reported that Becker had left a note, stating he was forced to drive someone somewhere in her vehicle.  Several attempts were made to reach Becker via public service with negative results.  A BOLO was issued for Becker to check his well- being.  At approximately 1730 hrs. Becker was reported to be home with the vehicle.  Deputy Brown met with Becker who was found to be safe.  Becker advised he left the previous date and went to a hospital in Virginia.  When asked why he went to that hospital, he stated he was going to Elkins, WV, to visit a friend so he just went ahead to that hospital, instead of a local hospital.  Becker further advised that he did not remember writing any note, or being threatened by anyone to leave by force.  Deputy Brown will be requesting a summons be issued to Nathaniel B. Becker, age 40, on a charge of disorderly conduct.
