¯ A deputy was on patrol Wednesday in the area of Ohio 339 and Camp Hervida Road. A male, walking along the roadway, was checked on by the deputy. The male, identified as Darren Mallett, advised he was walking from Beverly to Ripley, W.Va. The deputy asked Mallett if he would like a ride, and he replied yes. Mallett was told that his person and backpack would have to be searched, prior to giving him a ride, which Mallett consented to. While searching the backpack, there were numerous containers of pastries. A ride was given to Mallett to Belpre Township.
The deputy, being familiar with a case in reference to the theft of pastries from a food truck, asked Mallett if he had broken into the food truck, as he also matched the description of the individual, as well as the packaging of the pastries he was in possession of. Mallett admitted to being the person that committed the offense at Lisa’s Sweet Stop, 212 Fifth St., Beverly.
Mallett was asked, prior to going to the Washington County Jail, if he had anything on him which was illegal and he admitted to having marijuana seeds and a “bowl” in his jacket pocket.
