On 20 May 2021 Deputy Painter was dispatched to 66 Arrowhead Road, Little Hocking, OH, to a report of a male passed out at the gas pumps, inside his vehicle.  The vehicle was leaving the lot as Deputy Painter arrived.  The vehicle was soon stopped for a traffic violation.  Deputy Painter met with Thomas Jordan who advised he did not have an operator’s license due to it being suspended.  Jordan also advised he thought there was a warrant for his arrest.  Confirmation was received that an active warrant was on file for Jordan.  Jordan exited the vehicle, and advised he had an empty baggie on him, and did not know what was in the baggie.  A small baggie of white powder was located on Jordan’s person.  Also located was a clear glass pipe with white power residue in the vehicle.  Jordan also did not know who the pipe belonged to.  Thomas Nicholas Jordan, age 27, 4861 N.

On 23 May 2021 Deputy Kehl was dispatched to Newport Township due to James Perrine requesting a deputy. Perrine reported an individual acquaintance was tearing up his residence.  The acquaintance was observed walking on Greene Street when Deputy Kehl arrived in the area.  This individual was very distraught, advising that Perrine picked her up last night and she spent the night at the residence.  A TPO is currently on file between Perrine and the individual in this investigation.  Perrine had accused the subject of damaging his RV and Perrine became enraged.  Perrine had grabbed the subject’s neck and was choking her, which caused her to pass out.  Perrine also took the subject’s phone (which he did not have permission to do) and shortly after fled the scene.  Attempts to locate Perrine were attempted, which yielded negative results.
