Docket


From the public records of the Findlay Police Department and the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office:

Police Department

A Findlay man was arrested for domestic violence/assault about 12:33 p.m. Monday following a dispute in the 2000 block of Tiffin Avenue.

A Findlay female reported Monday an ex-boyfriend was driving past her residence yelling and waving what appeared to be a handgun out the vehicle window.

A North Cory Street female said a Findlay male was harrassing and threatening her, a violation of the civil protection order she had against him. After police determined probable cause existed for charges, the male was later arrested at an Ash Avenue residence Tuesday night.

A domestic dispute over a cellphone was reported on Colt Drive Tuesday night.

A Findlay male was issued a minor misdemeanor offense for marijuana possession after police approached him while he was inside a parked car in the 2500 block of Tiffin Avenue early Wednesday morning. Police were in the area because of recent reports of narcotics activity. Also found in the car were marijuana paraphernalia and raw marijuana.

An Adams Street male reported harrassing text messages early Wednesday morning from a person who had been paid, but refused to finish a painting job at the location.

Sheriff’s Office

Hypodermic needles were found in a parking lot in the 22000 U.S. 224 East. It’s the third time in three weeks the needles have been found in the area.

A debit card was shredded by sheriff’s personnel after it was found in an ATM at an Arlington bank. When a deputy tried to return the card, the resident said he didn’t bank at the location. The male was told to check with his debit card company to ensure no one opened an account in his name.
