Columbiana County Sheriff Reports 4-18

Melissa Zarlenga, Kibler Road, East Palestine, reported Saturday her son brought home a bag of bones he found along Beaver Lake Road. A deputy examined the contents and determined the bones and fur were from an animal carcass.

Steven Dawson, Willard Road, Salineville, reported Saturday having problems with his neighbor, Steve Marshall, who trespasses on his property and whose dogs are killing his cats. Marshall said his dogs sometimes get loose and wander onto Dawson’s property. He accused Dawson of taking shots at his dog, and if does it again, Marshall said he will shoot back. Marshall also said Dawson is attracting raccoons to his property by feeding them and then they go under Marshall’s home, tearing up his insulation. The deputy told Marshall he needs to keep his dogs secure and there would be severe consequences if he shot at Dawson. Marshall said he had no intention of doing that and just said it because he was angry.

Valerie Bowers, state Route 154, Elkrun Township, reported Saturday a person she knows by the name of Wilbert had been driving past her home and calling her, telling Bowers he was drunk and that he was going to get some drugs and a gun and then drive a motor vehicle into her home. A deputy tried to contact the man but was unable to reach him. He told Bowers to contact the sheriff’s office if the man should return or call back.
