Jan. 28

CARS KEYED: A resident in the 5700 block of Allen Park Drive, Tipp City, called to report that three of his vehicles had been keyed overnight.

Jan. 29

SUSPICIOUS VEHICLE: A deputy observed a white Crown Vic with dark tinted windows and a small light bar on its top traveling westbound through the village of Covington. A few nights prior officers had a call of a vehicle that matched the same description attempting to pull cars over on State Route36 between Covington and the village of Gettysburg in Darke County.

The deputy made contact with the driver and registered owner Isaiah McKenzie. The deputy advised him of why they had stopped him and noticed what looked to be three juvenile females in the vehicle with him. The deputy asked how old they were and they all said 17. Mr. McKenzie gave me his Indiana operators license, but none of the passengers had an ID on them.

The deputy asked Mr. McKenzie about being involved in the complaint from the other evening. The deputy then asked him why he had the light bar on his car, he said that he did not know, he was thinking about joining the fire department. The deputy then asked him to turn the lights on. The lights were red and white and appeared to be flashing the same manner as the wig wag lights like the sheriff cruisers. That is how the reporting party explained it the previous evening. The deputy asked him if he was out on State Route36 trying to pull cars over and he denied it. The deputy explained to him that his car was a perfect match for the suspect vehicle. Again he denied being involved, but offered up the story that maybe one of his friends was out driving his car and did it.

The deputy released Mr. McKenzie, and two juveniles and transported the third juvenile to her residence in Piqua and issued a summons for a curfew violation and she was released to her mother.

JAIL INCIDENT: Inmate Logan Adams attempted to hang herself with her blanket in second floor visitation. CO’s Sgt.

Larimore, CO Justice, and CO Sears were able to stop her. Adams was moved back to 104 and put on suicide watch.
