Brandon Risner, 29, at large, was lodged in jail Thursday for a parole violation.
The Bellefontaine Police Department’s canine team responded to Homecoming Restaurant, 1370 N. Main St., at 3:05 p.m. to assist Adult Parole Authority officers in locating and apprehending Risner, who was allegedly involved in a stabbing incident outside the county.
Risner has been staying in a mobile home at the location and was observed exiting a building. He observed the canine team, stopped and announced he would not run.
He was taken into custody and lodged in the Logan County Jail.
No further information regarding the out-of-county incident was included in the incident report.
Intoxicated man lodged
Larry J. Counts, 46, of 600 Saxon Drive, was charged Thursday with public intoxication.
Officers responded to 812 Heritage Court at 11:45 p.m. to investigate a man loudly knocking on doors and asking for money. Counts was found in an apartment speaking on a resident’s phone.
He was intoxicated, officers report, so they arrested him for transport to the jail.
Chris Orahood, 1000 Garfield Ave., Lot 24, reported Wednesday someone shot out two rear windows of his sport utility vehicle while it was parked overnight. Officers noted the windows were shattered by a pellets most likely from a BB gun.
Officers refer case to prosecutors
A female motorist may face charges of obstructing official business and falsification and traffic citations for no operator’s license, driving under suspension and running a red light after officers reviewed cruiser camera footage from a Jan. 2 traffic stop and work records for the owner of the vehicle.
The suspect claimed she was not driving when she was pulled over on Carter Avenue after running a red light at Main Street and Lake Avenue around 10:55 p.m.
Instead, she said the owner of the sport utility vehicle was driving and ran off. The officer noted in an incident report his view of the SUV was blocked briefly by a passing red pickup truck as he waited to turn from Main onto Carter.
He also did not have clear view of the driver prior to the stop.
The officers was suspicious that the suspect was lying and warned her of the consequences.
She was released from the scene and the SUV was towed.
A later review of the cruiser video showed there was nobody in the passenger seat and the operator was wearing a light blue stocking cap, similar to one worn by the suspect at the stop.
Work records for the SUV’s owner show he was at work until midnight.
