August 18, 2018

BARBOURSVILLE - The following information was provided by police reports filed at the Barboursville Police Department:

LARCENY: Three separate theft reports were filed after tools were stolen from vehicles overnight Aug. 1 at the Holiday Inn in the 3500 block of U.S. 60.

All three vehicles were owned by out-of-town contracting companies, and all three reports state the tools were stolen from toolboxes that were left unlocked overnight in the bed of each truck.

One vehicle was missing $320 worth of tools - a measuring wheel, a Craftsman level with case, a Kobalt 1/4 drive ratchet, a socket set and a wrench set.

The second reported $1,500 worth of tools taken - a DeWalt variable speed saw, a jobsite radio, three socket sets and a set of large wrenches. The complainant told police these tools had “Beitzel” carved into the plastic.

The third complainant reported $10,900 worth of tools missing - a Caltex gas monitor (value $10,000), Earthquake impact gun, Blackhawk impact sockets and an electric grease gun.

DUI UNDER 21: Police arrested an 18-year-old just after 9:30 p.m. Aug. 13 after stopping him for suspected intoxication while operating an ATV in the 4600 block of U.S. 60.

The suspect, David Scott, was allegedly offered to perform a field sobriety test after the responding officer observed he was unable to stand without assistance, but he couldn’t do that. The report states there were several open containers strapped to the ATV.

Scott was secured in the police vehicle, and while the officer was gathering information off the ATV, Scott allegedly began knocking on the door of the cruiser. The officer opened the door and Scott began vomiting.

Scott’s blood alcohol content was tested at the West Virginia State Police barracks, which gave a result of 0.117.

He was housed in Western Regional Jail pending arraignment.
