Teen transported after crash


Alyssa Becraft, 16, of Kenton, was transported by Bellefontaine squad to Mary Rutan Hospital for non-incapacitating injuries sustained in a crash Tuesday afternoon on Stockyard Road.

Deputies of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office report Daisy C. Schmelzer, 17, of Kenton, was operating a westbound car near U.S. Route 33 about 2:50 p.m. when she swerved to avoid an oncoming vehicle and then drove off the left side of the road and struck an embankment.

The driver reported possible injuries, but was not transported from the scene. Alyssa was a passenger in the car.

Both occupants were wearing their seat belts. Damage was moderate to the car.

Daisy was cited for failure to control.

Deputies responded to the home about 5:35 p.m. on a report of a male making threats with a knife. He also was screaming obscenities in front of young children. Mr. Mally was arrested and transported to the Logan County Jail.

• Dawn M. Givens, 43, of 4831 State Route 274, Rushsylvania, was charged with disorderly conduct Monday morning.

Deputies also had been called to her mother-in-law’s residence the previous evening when Ms. Givens would not leave the property.

Firearms reported stolen

Terry Kimball, 5010 County Road 1, Bellefontaine, reported Monday that two firearms and a tool set were missing from his garage.

He noted that on Friday, a man in a white pickup had stopped by his residence, asking if he could paint the barn. Mr. Kimball refused the offer, and thought the incident was suspicious because there were no paint supplies in the vehicle.
