Rowdy: Officers escorted a combative patient from Trinity West, Monday. Hospital personnel complained he attempted to assault staff members and threatened them, and, at one point, was said to have thrown a chair down a hallway though no staffers witnessed that act. They did say he was heard to say he would “do whatever (he has) to, to get out of here.”
Fraud: A Glenwell Road couple said they were alerted to attempts by someone in West Chester, Ohio, trying to purchase a laptop using their debit cards, Monday. They said they were notified of the attempted fraud via text messages from First Choice America. The printout showed the names of an alternative pickup person and alternative e-mail.
Booked: Mayia Dokes, 23, 501 Ash St., Steubenville, petty theft and possession of drug paraphernalia, Monday. Kroger employees allege Dokes was bagging items without scanning them and had begun walking toward the exit when she received a phone call, looked around and fled the store, leaving the shopping cart behind. Officers who were entering the store say in addition to the bagged items, she’d left a transparent purse containing her driver’s license and said she returned to the store minutes later and grabbed the purse and began searching through it, telling officers she had no intention of stealing any of the items in the cart. Officers allegedly spotted a crack pipe in the purse, which she claimed didn’t belong to her even though it contained her credit cards and other identifying information.
