Police reports

Jefferson County sheriff

Joy ride: A Mingo Junction woman told deputies she had to drive to Cleveland to get her car after her ex-boyfriend took it without her permission, Wednesday. She said they’d broken up in September, but earlier this week when he had no where to go she let him stay at her place for three days. When she realized he had her car, the woman said he’d bring it back to her, then changed his mind and said he’d park it on I-480. Eventually he called and said he’d parked it and left the key under the seat.

Strike: A Rayland resident said his neighbor chased him with a baseball bat, Monday. He told deputies she tried to hit him with her car when she pulled in her driveway, and had a pink bat in her hand when she got out of the car. He said she swung and missed.

Steubenville police

Stuck: Two men were arguing in the 700 block of Dock Street when one of them struck the other with a three-ring binder, Tuesday. Police said the victim’s lip was cut so his assailant drove him to the hospital.

A.W.O.L.: A Euclid Avenue resdient told police he went to bed with his keys on the nightstand and awakened to discover his keys, his car and his girlfriend were all missing.

Trash: Someone left several black garbage bags full of trash at the marina, Tuesday. Paperwork located in the refuse led police to an address where they found more bags of trash on the side of the residence.

Code issues: Notices of violation were sent to the owners of properties at 1232 Oak Grove, litter; 137 McConnell Avenue, outdoor storage.

Downed: A man found lying face down in a yard on Lawson Avenue told police he’d been drinking all day, Tuesday. The man’s wife helped him into the house, they said.

Swindled: A man who thought he was talking to a supervisor about problems accessing his Amazon human resources account said $888 was withdrawn from his account, Tuesday. The victim said the person purporting to be a supervisor guiding him through the orientation process convinced him to give them his account information, and as soon as he did the money was taken.
