• Deputies arrested a 29-year-old Dayton male for allegedly obstructing official business and receiving stolen property at 8:17 a.m. on Dec. 20. According to the report, the suspect and a female subject were observed walking on Greenfield Sabina Road. It was discovered the suspect had abandoned a stolen vehicle that belonged to a 38-year-old Dayton female. When deputies spoke with the male who had given a false name, which was discovered after speaking the 22-year-old Dayton female with him. The suspect waived his Miranda Rights and said he was going to Walmart and ran out of gas on U.S. 22 East. “(The suspect) was unable to provide details, and changed parts of his story multiple times,” according to the report. The suspect eventually said he was driving the stolen vehicle but advised, “his friend in Dayton gave him the car and told him that it was stolen. (The suspect) refused to provide his friend’s name and refused to provide a written statement as well.” The report also indicates the suspect was wanted out of Montgomery County.

• Deputies arrested a 51-year-old New Vienna female for alleged domestic violence after responding to a report at a New Vienna residence at 1:20 a.m. on Dec. 16. According to the report, deputies observed both mirrors of a minivan “sitting in the driveway, had been broken and pieces were laying all over the driveway.” Upon entering the residence, they observed the living room was “in disarray.” Deputies spoke with the suspect and her spouse — a 52-year-old New Vienna male — who was “(visibly) upset and had a scratch next to (his) left eye that was bleeding” and bruises forming on his left cheek. The victim alleged that the two were at a friend’s house for a party and the suspect was telling people “she was going to leave him.” He advised she told him to leave and she’d get her own ride home and at 10:30 p.m. he left to return home. He then advised the suspect returned home at 1 a.m., walked into the house, “and began throwing things and yelling”, and she then walked over and assaulted him leaving a scratch next to his left eye. The suspect said she was angry and broke the mirrors off the van because the victim left her at the party and had to hitchhike back home. She also said she flipped the coffee table.
