On 1 Aug 2020 Deputy Kehl was dispatched to 1399 Scotts Ridge Road, Whipple, Ohio, to a report by Janet Wells of missing money.  The individual reported responsible for the theft was Douglas S. Cline, who had left the residence prior to Deputy Kehl arriving. Wells and other witnesses advised Cline left the residence and went into the woods. Wells stated that since a witness to this incident has been in a relationship with Cline, she has noticed cash missing on several occasions. Wells stated she knew it was Cline but the events had not been reported.  Wells stated on 30 Jul 2020 is when she believed she was missing $50. On this date witnesses had seen Cline in Wells’ purse and had even taken the purse into the bathrooms.  Wells looked for her purse in the area she keeps it, however it was not there.  Wells stated that another individual had located the purse in the bathroom after Cline had left the residence, and Wells soon discovered she was missing cash from her purse.  Cline was unable to be interviewed and Deputy Kehl requested a warrant be issued for his arrest on a charge of burglary and theft.  The warrant was issued and Cline, age 42, 1495 Scotts Ridge Road, Whipple, OH, and he was arrested on 12 Aug 2020 and transported to the Washington County Jail.
