Steubenville police

Wrong place, wrong time: A Virginia Avenue resident’s trash was found inside a commercial dumpster Friday on North Third Street, police said. Employees had complained that someone was illegally dumping their trash in the dumpster, so an officer sifted through it until he located a name.

No knock: A Belleview Boulevard resident who left his front door unlocked Friday while he shoveled snow at a nearby residence said his TV was missing when he returned. Police said there was no sign of forced entry and the homeowner didn’t notice anything else missing.

Code issues: A notice of violation was sent to the owner of a property at 424 Maxwell Ave., Steubenville, trash and boxes.

Arrested: Bobby L. Lancaster, 53, no fixed address, was taken into custody Friday on a petty theft warrant out of municipal court. He also was cited for intoxication. Police said they took Lancaster into custody after callers reported a male on University Boulevard, standing in the roadway. They allege his eyes appeared glassy and his speech was severely slurred, and while transporting him to the jail to be booked on the warrant they said he was “observed to be highly intoxicated.” They allege he yelled vague threats at the officers, claiming they were harassing him, and he reportedly refused to provide basic information for his commitment at the jail.

Tacky: Porch pirates stole diabetic supplies from a porch in the 500 block of Maxwell Avenue, police were told Friday. The homeowner said he’d been billed but had never received the supplies, which the carrier said was left on the porch several months ago.

Arrested: Shannon Lucas, 29, 1127 Wilson Ave., Steubenville, was taken into custody on a warrant alleging she failed to appeal at a hearing on a probation violation. Lucas was a passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over after the driver failed to signal a left turn, police said.

Embedded: A vehicle struck a concrete pole at the beginning of the parking stall aisle at Walmart Friday. The driver told police she didn’t see the pole, which was embedded in the front driver side corner of the vehicle. Police noted extensive damage to the front bumper and driver side of the vehicle and near the axle and tire on the driver’s side. The vehicle had to be towed after the driver tried to separate the vehicle from the pole and couldn’t.

Leaving: A Dresden Avenue resident asked police to stand by while she removed some of her possessions from her boyfriend’s residence. She told police he’d refused to allow her to leave.

Arrested: Daniel R. Adams, 24, 78 Town St., Steubenville, was taken into custody Friday on a bench warrant. Ohio State Highway Patrol officers brought Adams on station to be served, police noted.

Arrested: Ashley Marie Monigold, 28, 1098 Clair Ave., Steubenville, was served with a warrant for falsification.

Shout out: A Rayland man’s “highly intoxicated” girlfriend caused a disturbance at his home Saturday, yelling and wanting to fight his sister. The man, who was reportedly intoxicated, told deputies his sister doesn’t like it when he brings the other woman into their home. There was no physical altercation, though the sister did produce an audio recording of the disturbance.

Arrested: Lamar Crowe Jr., 38, 305 Walden Ave., Apt. 1, Tiltonsville, was taken into custody Saturday for violating a protection order issued by a Colorado judge three years ago, deputies said.

Disagreement: A Toronto man told deputies Saturday he wanted them to remove his girlfriend from his home. Deputies said it was obvious the man was under the influence of alcohol, and he told them he wanted her to leave because she smokes marijuana frequently and they have relationship issues. His girlfriend said he’d been drinking Crown Royal all day and she’s not sure what made him call.

Found: A missing Belmont County juvenile was located in Rayland, Saturday. Deputies said other occupants at the residence originally denied the child was there, but when told they could be charged with obstruction they admitted the juvenile was there.
