He faces a felony charge for cocaine possession and additional charges for the drug paraphernalia and for obstructing justice. A female Risingsun driver was cited for a traffic violation.
A distraught female motorist, who stopped in the 1600 block of Tiffin Avenue on Thursday, reported an incident involving a homeless adult son. The male was found, arrested for domestic violence, and taken to the Hancock County jail.

Sheriff’s Office

A sheriff’s deputy talked to a woman in the 200 block of North Main Street, Mount Blanchard, Thursday morning after Arcadia school officials said a woman was using her cellphone as a school bus went by each day. The woman said the bus drives into her yard as it makes a turn and leaves tracks. She was taking photos of the offense. She requested a bus route change to avoid her intersection, and Arcadia officials indicated they would use a different street.
A laptop computer was reported stolen Thursday by a resident of West Clay Street, Mount Blanchard.
A Forest woman said Thursday that someone filed her federal income tax return electronically using her Social Security number, resulting in her tax forms being rejected when they were submitted by a local tax preparation company. She’s in the process of filing identity theft forms with the Internal Revenue Service.
A juvenile female, who didn’t get along with housemates at a Sweetwater Road foster residence, did not return after classes Thursday at Findlay High School. She was later found at a Perth Avenue residence in Highland Estates. Officials indicated to a sheriff’s deputy that the girl was not to return to the foster home.
