Reports/Washington County

¯ A deputy received information Jan. 21 that Charles G. Gibson had stolen a vehicle. The owner of the vehicle, Frederick Forsthoefel, of 2133 Murray St., Belpre, had given Gibson permission to use the vehicle to drive to work the evening of Jan. 15. Gibson was to have the vehicle returned by midnight the same night. Gibson had driven the vehicle to West Virginia and was stopped by West Virginia State Police, and arrested on several warrants.

Due to Gibson driving the vehicle across state lines into West Virginia and having the vehicle in his possession for over 48 hours, the deputy requested a warrant for Charles G. Gibson, 61, of 10 Nova St., Apt. 716, Buckhannon, W.Va., for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

¯ A deputy was dispatched Feb. 1 to 4990 State Route 339 to a report of a single vehicle accident. The owner of the vehicle, John Bailey of Vincent, allowed Timothy Nay to drive his vehicle, a 2003 Volkswagen station wagon, and he had yet to return it.

A lieutenant responded to Bailey’s residence, where he was advised that he had given Nay permission to drive his vehicle for one day on Jan. 22. Bailey stated he was given $100 by Nay for letting him use the vehicle.

Bailey had spoken with Nay multiple times and told him to return the vehicle. Bailey stated he received a call from Nay stating he was on his way back when he was involved in an accident. A summons was requested Timothy Curtis Nay, 51, of 9105 State Route 550, Vincent, for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

¯ A deputy began an investigation Thursday into a shooting complaint. This case remains under investigation.
