Carroll County Sheriff’s Reports


Theft — Deputies are looking into a recent case of theft from a vehicle in Huntingdon.

Amanda Turner of Buena Vista told deputies on June 10 medication, debit cards, and cash were stolen from her vehicle while parked in the parking lot of Baptist Memorial Hospital-Carroll County. Turner said she was admitted to the hospital on June 6 and left her car unlocked in the parking lot. She said the car was moved to her parents’ house at one point, but when she came to pick up her car on June 10, she found the items missing. She also advised deputies that someone tried to make a fraudulent charge on her card, but she was notified of that attempt and was able to stop it through her cell phone.

Theft — Several items were recently reported stolen from private property in Cedar Grove.

On June 10, Deputy Frank McGee took a report of an estimated $2,600 in items being stolen from a storage building on Highway 104 West. The stolen items included a black Epiphone guitar, a black customized acoustic guitar, a Matthews compound bow with a Legacy wood guard, a black and blue Hart rolling tool storage bin, and a Kobalt cordless circular saw, two Kobalt drill drivers, assorted hand tools, four 25-watt solar panels, an auto battery, an industrial fan, two corded hand tools, a grinder, a motorcycle helmet, and a black bow.

Court Order Violation — Ashton Lynn Warren, 21, of 45 Holmes Mill Road, Huntingdon, was charged with violating an order of protection on June 12.

According to the report by Deputy Chance Townes, he responded to a residence on Leach Road. He spoke with a man, who said Warren, his daughter’s ex-boyfriend, had been calling and texting him and his daughter in violation of a court order. The man showed Townes a copy of the court order dated June 6, and the father and daughter sent the deputy screenshots of text messages and attempted phone calls from Warren. Later that night at around 10 p.m., deputies found Warren hiding in a wooded area on Leach Road and placed him under arrest.

Drug Possession — Wanda C. Rainey, 54, of 1668 N. Stonewall Street, McKenzie, was cited for possession of schedule II during a June 14 traffic stop near Huntingdon.

Deputy Steven Scott reported that he pulled over a vehicle driven by Rainey for failure to maintain a lane. When Scott asked Rainey if she had taken anything that would cause her to swerve, she said she had taken prescribed pain medication. Rainey consented to a search, and Scott found approximately one gram of a substance believed to be methamphetamine in her purse.
