Deputies Investigate County Home Theft, Check for Car Stopped, Littering in Creek

Checking Washington County Sheriff’s Office reports…  
Three residents at the County Home, 845 County House Lane, Marietta Township,  reported that they believe a resident who recently moved from the Home stole their property. The stolen items are an Xbox 360, a tablet computer and a banjo. This case is under investigation.  
On Wednesday the owner of Marietta Motors, 25901 State Route 7, Marietta Township, reported that a customer had purchased a vehicle with a $2,500 check on January 10, but then put a "stop payment" on the check. This case also remains under investigation.  
On Thursday a deputy requested a summons for Randy Harlow, age 49, 5270 Patten Mills Road, Palmer Township, as the result of a littering investigation. Three days earlier a passerby reported finding eight garbage bags and a deer carcass in the creek near the intersection of Roberts Road and Lawrence Boulevard in Wesley Township. Among the beer bottles, TV dinner boxes and deer legs in the trash, the deputy found three pieces of mail addressed to Mr. Harlow. When contacted, he allegedly admitted the garbage belonged to him but would not comment on how it got into the creek.
