Carroll County Sheriff’s Reports


Theft — It was reported on Sept. 18 that a 16-foot utility trailer valued at $1,800 with 86 square bales of hay on it valued at $520 was stolen from a barn at 13720 Highway 77 near Huntingdon.

The trailer was described as being faded red in color and made of square tubing with wood flooring and jacks located at the rear of the trailer.

Simple Possession — Lloyd James Sawyers, 56, of 57 Winchester Street, McKenzie, was charged with simple possession of schedule II drugs and drug paraphernalia on Sept. 17 in McKenzie.

Deputy Charles Townes reported that he saw Sawyers walking in front of the movie theater in downtown McKenzie and took him into custody for an outstanding warrant for failure to appear out of Carroll County. Sawyers handed Townes a small bag that he said contained some methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. Inside the bag, Townes found .3 grams of a substance believed to be meth.

Theft — Lee Cook of Bruceton told deputies on Sept. 13 that someone stole his Echo Pole chain saw valued at $1,500 from his bucket truck on Broad Street in Hollow Rock sometime between Sept. 11 and earlier that day.

Assault, Resisting — Michael Aaron Aldridge, 36, of 140 Glenwood, Bruceton, was charged with assault and resisting arrest during a Sept. 16 incident at a Bruceton residence.

Deputy Michael Smith reported that deputies responded to a call at a residence on Taylor Street and spoke with a female resident, who said that Aldridge had gotten into a fight with her daughter’s boyfriend, and that, at one point, Aldridge threw a block at him but hit her instead without causing injury. When deputies entered the home to speak with Aldridge, who had locked himself in the house, Aldridge walked out the front door. Aldridge refused to stop when commanded by deputies and resisted while deputies were trying to handcuff him.
