Brothers lodged on heroin charges
Two brothers were arrested when officers of the Bellefontaine Police Department found several balls of heroin, hypodermic needles, a pipe for smoking crack cocaine and a spoon for cooking heroin after a midnight traffic stop Wednesday.
Driver Timothy Allen, 29, of Bellefontaine, was charged with possession of heroin, drug paraphernalia, tampering with evidence, served a Union County warrant for failure to appear and was cited for driving under suspension and speeding.
Jonathon Allen, 31, of 1007 County Road 29, was charged with possession of heroin, drug paraphernalia, tampering with evidence, served a Union County warrant for failure to appear and providing false information to a police officer.
An officer tracked the northbound pickup traveling at 47 mph. The traffic stopped occurred on Iron Avenue.
Jonathon gave the officers a false name during the stop.
A hypodermic needle and plastic straw with white powder residue was first found on Timothy, according to reports.
A search of the cluttered pickup uncovered more needles, drugs and other paraphernalia and Jonathon’s driver’s license.
The pickup was impounded and the brothers were lodged in the Logan County Jail.
Man arrested for inducing panic
Robert E. Goines, 47, of 11900 County Road 87, Lot 35, Lakeview, was charged with inducing panic and violating a civil protection order Wednesday.
Deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office served a civil protection order to Mr. Goines at his address about 8:45 a.m. The defendant was advised that he needed to vacate the residence and turn over his keys and also any firearms to deputies.
Later in the day, deputies received information from a member of a crisis hotline that Mr. Goines was making threats and that he had a gun. They went to his address, but did not find anyone at the home.
Then about 8 p.m., dispatchers received a second call about the defendant making threats, so deputies went back to the residence.
Attempts were made by deputies to reach Mr. Goines by phone, but he did not answer. He eventually came out of the home.
Deputies did not find any weapons on his person. He was placed under arrest and transported to the Logan County Jail.
