Checking Washington County Sheriff’s Office reports…
Last week Frontier Communications reported that a number of shots had been fired into a telephone substation at the intersection of Germantown Road and Campbell Run Road in Liberty Township. At least one of the bullets disrupted phone service to the immediate area. The incident remains under investigation.
A Barlow woman had a really bad day last week. The 47-year-old woman was briefly incarcerated on Tuesday. She was released from jail and came home to find she’d been the victim of a burglary. The thief or thieves stole mobile phones, debit cards, medication, a weed eater, a fuse box, breaker box and a bucket of tools.
On Sunday the Beverly-Waterford rescue squad transported a six-year-old Waterford boy to Marietta Memorial Hospital for treatment to a dog bite inflected by a family pet. The child was playing with the  dog - which the child’s mother described as “snippy” - when the dog bit him in the face, causing a small laceration to his right eye and some minor bruising. The injuries were not serious. At the family’s request, deputies took the nine-year-old cocker spaniel to the Humane Society shelter to be quarantined

A Parkersburg woman was arrested for theft after she was caught shoplifting a package of underwear, two cans of Red Bull and a toothbrush from the Dollar General store in the Frontier Shopping Center.
On Saturday night officers responded to a report of a fight in progress at the horse barns on the county fairgrounds. Angela Tucker of Second Street and Heather Lang of Lowell were arrested for assault and disorderly conduct. The only person injured was a third woman who tried to stop the fight. She suffered a jaw injury and was taken by a fire department rescue squad to MMH for treatment.
Police were called on Sunday evening to Washington County Republican Party headquarters at 119 Greene Street about window damage. They found a crack running diagonally across a large front window. There was no sign of impact to indicate a possible cause.
