Jefferson County sheriff
Walk the line: A Dillonvale woman told deputies she can’t prove it, but she thinks a neighbor who’s convinced he owns some of her property is removing her survey markers, Thursday.
Deep sleeper: A Bloomingdale man told deputies a disturbance reported at his residence was caused by his son sleeping in and missing a dental appointment, Thursday. He said the younger man has been having problems with his teeth and was upset when he realized he’d slept through his appointment. Callers had told deputies they could hear screams and things being thrown around inside the residence.
Mail call: A Mingo Junction resident told deputies another couple is having mail and packages sent to their address, then coming on their property uninvited to retrieve the items, Thursday. The culprits, who used to live at the address in question, said they’ve tried to update their address with the post office by submitting the proper paperwork and even called the USPS 800 number, but it hasn’t worked.
Pretender: A Salineville man said he got a Facebook message from someone pretending to be a coworker who pitched a money-making opportunity that turned out to be bogus, Wednesday. The victim said the individual conned him into supplying his identifying details, but he told deputies he hadn’t provided the thieves with any money. He said he’s had to freeze his accounts with the credit bureaus, report the scam on the FBI Consumer’s Fraud Reporting website, contact his banks and credit card companies and sign up for an identity guard service.
The rules: Two girls temporarily living in Richmond claimed their grandmother abuses them when their mother goes to work, but their mother told deputies the girls are the problem is the girls just don’t like to listen, Thursday.

Walker: A Rosswell Avenue woman who said she was trying to make it home took a breather in the 700 block of Pine St., much to the chagrin of the home’s owner who wanted her off his porch, Thursday.
