Four arrested in Morrow County, another still at large
The Morrow County Sheriff’s Office with assistance from the Mt. Gilead Police Department conducted an enforcement blitz with plainclothes and uniformed officers this week in an attempt to stem the amount of daytime home burglaries. Numerous residences were checked and investigative traffic stops were made. The number of daytime burglaries for the week was greatly reduced from the past several weeks.
On Friday December 23, 2011 the officers made four arrests on various warrants. The arrests include:
• Matthew Cobb, age 27 of Crestline, Ohio, was arrested for escape out of Crawford County. Cobb had escaped custody while at the Galion Community Hospital on Wednesday December 21, 2011. Cobb was in a vehicle pulled over during a traffic stop. He resisted arrest and fought officers on the scene. He was discovered to have what is believed to be heroin and a syringe in his possession at the time of arrest. Cobb is being turned over to the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office. Additional charges are now pending in Morrow County.
• William K Scott, age 35 of Marengo, Ohio was arrested on a Morrow County Grand Jury indictment for Sexual Battery. Scott appeared in court this afternoon and was released on an O.R. Bond
