Columbiana County Sheriff

Carol Phillips reported at 12:20 p.m. Friday she has been staying at the homeless shelter on state Route 45 and had nine $100 bills in her wallet. On Friday morning she went to get some money from her wallet and found only six $100 bills. She suspected another woman at the shelter of taking her money.

Deputies were asked at 1:01 p.m. Friday to check on a resident of New Waterford, by a concerned friend, who said he has not seen or heard from his friend since Feb. 16. Police found newspapers from the past couple weeks, but the mailbox was empty except for what was just placed there by the mailman. His vehicles were all there, and the friend insisted he was in the house. Deputies broke out a small pane of glass and searched the home, but did not find him. Dispatchers contacted local fire departments to see if he had been recently transported. East Palestine police informed deputies they received a call from Glen Dale, W.Va., police the week of Feb. 16, when the New Waterford man had been found disoriented in their city and was trying to get home. Glen Dale police had kept him there until his daughter could drive there from her home in Swanton, Ohio. Using a phone number on the Glen Dale police report, deputies contacted the daughter and learned the man is with her in Swanton, but they had dropped off his truck at his house on their way to her house. Deputies secured the home.

Leetonia police requested at 9:36 a.m. Monday deputies check on children living at a Leetonia Road home, where there had been some domestic violence issues in the past. The school was concerned after the children did not show up. A 15-year-old boy came to the door and told deputies his mother and father had an appointment and had kept him home from school to watch his 6-year-old brother and 5-year-old sister. Four other siblings were staying with other family members for a while.

Shawn Tremain, 26, Steubenville Pike, Lisbon, was stopped on South Lincoln in Lisbon for an alleged stop sign violation. Deputies cited Tremain with driving under suspension, stop sign, seat belt and possession of marijuana for what was reportedly found in the vehicle.
