Jefferson County sheriff

Dispute: A woman told deputies her grandmother refused to return her daughter to her, Monday. She said they argued and her grandmother began throwing her possessions out the door, and when she grabbed her daughter to leave, her grandmother snatched the child out of her arms. She claimed she’d been assaulted, but deputies said she didn’t have any visible injuries but her speech was slurred. Her grandmother said the woman appeared to be under the influence and she didn’t feel safe letting the child go with her. Deputies said the woman was still slurring and was argumentative with them when they spoke with her a second time, so they advised to get her in the car and leave.

Mistreated: A woman in the Rayland area told deputies her husband has been taking his frustration at losing his job out on her, Monday. The woman said when she came home from work without a job application for him, he was irate, spitting at her and tossing water on her. She said he’s been yelling at her and treating her badly for weeks and now her oldest child is starting to imitate his behavior. Her husband told deputies he’s been under a lot of stress and didn’t think he was behaving badly, and said when his wife yelled back and pointed her finger at him, he thought she was playing so he reciprocated.

Steubenville police

Shooting star: A Weirton man told police someone shot at him several hours earlier while he was walking to work on Railroad Avenue and may have been hit in his right leg, Monday. Police said he didn’t have any leg injuries, but they did note he was highly intoxicated and unsteady on his feet.

Camera shy: Police say they were able to identify two males who pried open a door to an apartment building in the 200 block of N. Fourth Street after watching surveillance footage of the break-in, Monday. The property manager discovered the main door had been damaged Thursday and pulled video showing one man using a screwdriver to pry the door open part way and the other man pulling on the door until it opened. She said the locking mechanism, valued at between $500 and $1,000, will have to be replaced.

Listen up: A woman who was warned by a Walmart employee about skip-scanning continued to do it, and was stopped as she tried to leave the store with $90 in merchandise that hadn’t been paid for. Police said she had a shopping cart full of other items that she had paid for.

Irritating: People continue to go door-to-door without a permit, this time asking to see peoples’ electric bills, Monday. The man, who said he works for Rushmore Energy, was told a permit to solicit is required.

Take the hint: Callers reported a disturbance in the 1100 block of Park Street, Sunday. Once on scene, police said a male said a woman had come onto his property and he had to scream at her to get her to leave.
