was at her daughter's house and there had

shortly before Ptl. Baker did and observed a 
vehicle parked on the road and one pulling 
into the drive.

scene and I was only there to assist him. 
The female involved in the matter was able

felt threatened. Farris then advised that he 
believes that the message was sent from

advised him that a report would be filed but 
due to the message being 3rd party and the 
period of time from when it was sent, and 
that there was no way of proving that she 
sent the message, that the possibility of 
charges being filed are slim. I advised

Identity Theft

On 01/17/2015 at approximately 1550, 1 
was dispatched to 225 W Maryland Ave 
Apt. 21 3 for an alleged identity theft 
incident. Upon arrival I met with the 
complainant Leo R. Burgess and a social 
worker assisting him Cheryl A Russell. 
Russell advised that Burgess had received 
a letter from the Ohio Department of 
Taxation Personal and School District 
Income Tax Division stating that they 
received a 2013 Ohio income tax return 
under the name Leo R Burgess and his 
SSN. 

Ohio Department of Taxation is reporting 
that this return was inconsistent with his 
previous filings. I advised Burgess to notify 
the bank to keep an eye on their bank 
accounts so they are aware of whats going 
on. I also advised Russell and Burgess to 
obtain a credit report for Burgess as soon 
as possible to determine if any accounts 
have been opened with his SSN. 

Burgess advised that him and his wife lived 
at 2311 Ansley St Apt 3 Alliance, OH in 
2013 and advised that there were multiple 
times where
they did not receive all their mail. Burgess 
advised that he believed "Hispanics" that 
lived in the apartment might have possibly 
taken some of his mail in 2013 but had no 
proof or report. 

Russell and Burgess advised that they have 
no other letters or signs of identity theft 
other than this tax letter at this time. Russell 
advised that if any new information comes 
about or something on the credit report is 
suspicious that she would let Sebring Police 
Department know. A copy of the Ohio 
Department of Taxation letter is enclosed in 
the case file. Russell advised that she 
would need a copy of this report to provide 
to provide to Ohio Department of Taxation 
and I informed her it should be available 
Monday 1/19/2015. This report is 
informational for now based on the 
evidence at hand and will be closed unless 
any new evidence comes forth in the future.

Dog Running at Large

On 01/16/2015 at approximately 1721 
hours, I was dispatched to 134 E lndiana 
Ave for an alleged dog running at large. I 
arrived and spoke with the complainant 
Kayla M Stanley who advised that she 
found a white dog on her front porch and 
took it inside and put it in her fenced area 
behind her home so it didn't get hit by a car. 
Once I seen the dog I was able to tell that 
the dog belonged to Rose M Fusco of 538 
N 15th St. I know this because I was at their 
residence approximately two hours prior to 
this call for an unrelated incident and seen 
their dog running out in front of their house. 
Scott Fusco  advised that he would get the 
dog under control and get it back home. 
They were unable to find it due  to the fact 
that it was in a fence behind 134 E Indiana 
Ave. I met up with Scott Fusco and he was 
able to come to 134 E lndiana and retrieve 
the dog and I advised him that they would 
be receiving a written warning for 505.01(c) 
Dog running at large. Dispatch checked for 
prior warnings to Fusco's but was unable to 
find any so that is why I made the decision 
to give them a written warning. I advised 
Scott and Rose Fusco that if it happens 
again they will be issued a MM cite for it. I 
hand delievered the warning letter to Rose 
Fusco on this date.

of E Oregon Ave I observed a black colored 
Jeep traveling north on N 15Ih St. The 
vehicle entered the intersection and 
proceeded through as the stop light turned 
red. The light had been red for quite some

while this vehicle was still in the middle of 
the intersection. 

I initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle 
bearing Ohio plate FFN6240 in the 100

For violating a Sebring ordinance 
prohibiting the operation of bicycles upon 
sidewalks in the business
district (SCO 373.17). 1 recognized this 
individual as Eric M. Springer. Officer asked 
for his identification,
which he gave me and Officer checked his 
identification through dispatch. Officer 
asked Mr. Springer where he
was heading, and he informed me that he 
was heading home from Circle K. Mr. 
Springer's address
is 20624 Beach St. Alliance, Oh 44601. 1 
informed him that it didn't appear that he 
had the proper
safety instruments to ride his bicycle on the 
road at night either and that he would need 
to get a light
for the rear of his bicycle. Officer checked 
Mr. Springer for any weapons, and while 
conducting my Terry pat,
I noticed an object in his pants which Officer 
could identify as a pill bottle. Officer asked 
Mr. Springer what that
item was, and asked him if it was a pill 
bottle. Officer never asked him to remove 
the pill bottle, but he did so
on his own. It took him several seconds to 
remove the bottle from his pants due to the 
fact that the
bottle was located in a cargo pocket located 
in his shorts, which he had on underneath 
his sweat
pants. Mr. Springer removed the bottle and 
handed it to me, and Officer asked him if 
there were any pills
inside the bottle before he removed it 
because Officer believed Officer heard 
rattling in the bottle. Mr. Springer
stated that there was nothing inside the 
bottle and to prove that he didn't empty 
anything out he
dropped his sweatpants down to reveal only 
his shorts. Officer asked if he had anything 
else on him that 
needed to know about and Officer finished 
my Terry pat. Officer also felt in his pocket a 
long cylindrical tube which
I identified as being some sort of pipe. 
Officer asked him to remove the glass pipe 
from his pants, and he
explained to me that it was a glass pipe 
used to smoke tobacco. The pipe had one 
end open and the
other end was round with a small hole in it, 
similar to the style used to smoke or ingest 
narcotics by
placing the narcotic in the end and heating 
it up. Mr. Springer claimed that it had never 
been used,
however there where burn marks on the 
end of it. Ptl. Davis from Smith Township 
arrived and assisted me in my investigation. 
Upon examining the pill bottle closer, Officer 
noticed a white powdery substance in the 
bottom of the bottle. Officer asked Mr. 
Springer several times what the substance 
was, but he claims that he didn't know and 
then informed us that he found the bottle, 
but couldn't accurately tell
us where he found it. He stated that he was 
going to use it to store his loose change in. 
During the
time we were speaking to Mr. Springer, he 
began sweating very heavily and claimed 
that it was
because it was hot out and that he was

he would allow us to search the backpack if 
he didn't have anything illegal in there, to 
which he
refused. Officer informed him that Officer 
would be sending the pill bottle off to be 
tested and that if it contained a
narcotic, then he would be charged with 
possession and drug paraphernalia. Officer 
also noticed a white
powdery trace inside the glass pipe and 
believed that to also be from a narcotic, 
possibly
methamphetamine, which Mr. Springer 
denied. Officer informed him that Officer

I , Officer Eberling and Officer White were 
dispatched to 175 W. Ohio for a call by 
Karen Hill. Mrs. Hill said that Allen Reed 
had entered her house without her 
permission and taken a gold band ring from 
her hand and left. This department had 
been dispatched to this address the day 
before when Mr. Reed had been in the 
house and kicked their dog. The Hill's did 
not want Mr. Reed back in their house and 
Mr. Reed had been told by this Officer that 
he was not to return to that house based on 
the wishes of the Hill's. 

Upon arrival we observed Mr. Reed looking 
out the upstairs apartment window.

He was asked if he had taken a ring from 
Mrs. Hill and he said "I don't know what you 
are talking about." Officer left Officer 
Eberling with Mr. Reed, who had came 
down stairs and was on the porch. l went 
with Officer White to get a statement from 
Karen Hill. Mrs. Hill again said that Mr. 
Reed had entered her house right behind 
her and she had not given him permission 
to come in the house. She had a gold ring 
in her hand and Mr. Reed took the ring from 
her and left the house. She said that the 
ring had been her mothers and she had 
given it to her before she died. Officer 
asked her if she wanted to have Mr. Reed 
arrested for his actions. She said yes. 
Officer asked Mrs. Hill if she would give 
Officer White a written statement and she 
said yes. 

I went to the porch where Mr. Reed and 
Michele Morrow (the person who is on the 
lease of the apartment) were standing with 
Officer Eberling. Base upon the statement 
made to me by Mrs. Hill, Mr. Reed was 
placed under arrest for burglary. At this time 
Mr. Reed kept trying to pull away from 
Officer Eberling and Officer helped to bring 
him under control and he was placed in the 
back of Officer Eberling's car. Officer then 
asked Ms Morrow if Officer could search the 
house for the ring and she said yes. Officer 
then went upstairs with Ms. Morrow and 
looked around the house.

A William Hopkins was in the living room, 
and Officer asked him if he had seen Mr. 
Reed with a gold ring?

He said "Yes that he had seen a gold band 
on one of his pinkie fingers. Officer radioed 
Officer Eberling to check Mr. Reeds hands 
for the ring. 
Officer Eberling radioed back and said that 
he had no rings on his hands. Officer 
checked the bedroom and while doing that 
Officer asked Ms. Morrow if she knew 
where he may have put the ring and she 
said maybe in my jewelry box. She got the 
box out and opened it but there was no 
jewelry in it. Officer then saw a gold object 
on a empty Knick- Knack shelve. Officer 
went over to it and saw that it was a gold 
band ring, small about a size 7. 1 asked Ms. 
Morrow if this was her ring and she said no. 
Officer asked if she knew who it belonged 
to and she said no. Officer then took the 
ring down stairs and showed it to Mrs. Hill 
and asked her if it was the ring that Mr. 
Reed had taken and she said "Yes". She 
asked for it back and Officer told her that 
Officer would have to keep it until the case 
was over as it was evidence. Officer told 
Mrs. Hill that Mr. Reed would be charged 
with Burglary. The statement
was completed by Mrs. Hill and Officer went 
to the car and told Mr. Reed that he was 
being charged with Burglary, and F-2. Mr. 
Reed was brought back to the station to be 
processed and at that time he complained 
of his wrist hurting, he had told me the day 
before that he had broken it and would 
need surgery. Officer request Officer 
Eberling to take Mr. Reed to the Hospital in 
Alliance to get him cleared for
Jail. 

Officer Eberling informed me that at 
Alliance they had put a splint on his wrist 
after they had x-ray it, but that they had 
cleared him for jail. 
When Officer Eberling returned to the 
station to get the paperwork and to have 
DNA obtained, Mr. Reed became very 
combative and would not cooperate.

Once the DNA was obtained Mr. Reed was 
placed in the back of the car for transport to 
county jail.

Officer Eberling needed fuel in his car so 
Officer followed him to the station and 
watched Mr. Reed as he got fuel. Mr. Reed 
then started to kick and hit his head on the 
windows. In an attempt to calm Mr. Reed 
down he became combative again. Mr. 
Reed was finally brought under control and 
Officer Eberling transported him to the 
County Jail. Upon arrival and check-in at 
County Jail, the Medical Tech would not let 
Mr. Reed in because she said that his blood 
pressure was too high. Mr. Reed told her 
that it was high because he was afraid of 
going to jail. Officer Eberling asked that 
they check his pressure again as they had 
only checked it once and he was told no 
you must take him to St. "E's" to be cleared. 
Since Alliance had cleared him once Officer 
did not see a reason to bring him all the 
way back to Alliance to have him cleared, 
so Officer told Officer Eberling to take him 
to St "E's" and get him cleared.

Officer Eberling did that and Mr. Reed was 
returned to County Jail where he was 
placed for Burglary 291 1.12(a)(2) with a 
$12,000 Bond. After talking with Officer 
Eberling it was agreed to charge Mr. Reed 
with Resisting Arrest 2921.33(a), for being 
combative. Mr. Reed has a court date of 
12/30114 at 1300hrs, this will be at 
Mahoning County Court #3.

domestic dispute

On 12/21/2014 at approximately 0320 1 
was dispatched to 315 E. Indiana Ave. for a 
domestic dispute reportedly between a 
father and son. Upon arriving, Officer was 
let into the house by a juvenile female, 
whom Officer know to live at the residence. 
Officer then observed the father and son in 
the kitchen and
they had their hands locked and the son 
appeared to be attempting to fight with the 
father and the father appeared to be 
attempting to keep the son away from him. 
Officer immediately separated the two by 
pushing the son, identified as Jacob 
Crewson, backwards and away from his 
father. At no time did Officer observe either 
male strike one another. The father, Robert 
Crewson, went into the living room as 
Officer spoke to Jacob in the kitchen and 
attempted to get him to calm down. He 
stated that he was upset because his friend 
was home from the military and that he was 
upset, and because his friend was upset, he 
was upset. He also stated that he is 18 
years old and that he wanted to walk to 
Circle K to get "a can and some rubbers" 
and that he felt that he should be able to do 
that because he is 18 years old. 

Officer explained to him that he is still in 
high school and that he is still in the care of 
his father and if his father told him that he 
couldn't walk down there, that he needed to 
listen to his father. Officer brought Jacob 
into the living room so that Jacob and 
Robert could both speak to each other and 
could attempt to solve their minor conflict. 
Jacob continued to insist that he was 18 
and an adult and that he could walk to 
Circle K if he felt like it. 

Robert told Jacob that the reason he didn't 
want him walking to Circle K was because 
he had consumed alcohol earlier in the 
night. Officerinformed Jacob that if he were 
to walk to Circle K while intoxicated then he 
could have been arrested and that his 
father was only looking out for his best 
interests.

Officerasked both males if either one 
wished to press any sort of charges, which 
they both declined. Both males signed 
domestic violence refusal forms and Officer 
explained to Jacob that he needed to 
probably go to bed tonight and cool off until 
tomorrow and he could always go to Circle 
K in the morning.

Nothing further needed at this time.

Officer asked Eddie about the pill, and he 
said it wasn't his and asked me to show him 
exactly what it was. Officershowed Mr. Mills 
the display of the narcotic and what it was. 
Officernever once used the common name 
for the pill, which is "Vicodin." Mr. Mills then 
stated several times that the "Vicodin" 
wasn't his. Officerasked him how he knew 
that the pill was "Vicodin" since Officernever 
used that name to describe the pill. He 
stated that he wasn't stupid and that he 
knew what the pill was. Officer informed him 
that Officer had no idea what the pill was 
until Officer looked it up. Mr. Mills, by his 
own admission was intoxicated and was 
continuously yelling at individuals while we

At the time of Mr. Rine's arrest he was 
driving a van that belonged to his mother 
the victim of his crime. This van was bought 
on the 4th of December from Sally's in 
Alliance. Ms. Hanson had to of known that, 
Jonathan Rine, her son did not have a valid 
DI. She is the owner and did not report he 
van stolen when he was driving it.

Ms. Lipply was brought in and question 
about her knowing the where Mr. Rine was. 
She said that someone had sent a 
Facebook message to Jill Cobert to leave 
some of his clothes on the front porch. But 
they never returned to get the clothes. She 
said that Mr. Rine had called her on the day
that he was picked up on the warrant, and 
asked her to go to a Doctor appointment 
with him and his mother. She said that he 
picked her up and they went to a doctors 
office on Sawburg, and then she was taken 
the ER. This is not true as the mother was 
picked up by our first responders and taken 
to the ER, not to a doctors appointment. 
She said that she does not know where he 
was living but thought it was in his van. Ms. 
Lipply will be interviewed again for the 
untruthfulness. This case is still open for 
further evidence.

OVI

Subject on Taylor Rd yelling and bothering 
the neighborhood. 

When both units arrived a male subject was 
outside screaming. The male was identified 
as Hayden Miller who was highly 
intoxicated and yelling that he wanted his 
child back. 

Officers advised Hayden he would not be 
taking his child under his condition and we 
could not make the mother give up the child 
due to it being a civil matter. Hayden 
continued to yell and give officers a hard 
time on the situation. Ptl. Baker detained 
Hayden so both officers could speak with 
the grandmother. 

When officers questioned Hayden he 
became very belligerent stating he drove to 
Sebring from Salem and did not see 
anything wrong with it. 
At that time Sebring First Responders 
where called to Johnson Rd at the railroad 
crossing for a car vs train. Officers 
questioned Hayden if that was his vehicle. 

Both officers cleared the scene. 

While in route Ptl. Baker of Smith Twp PD 
assisted me in the accident and took 
Hayden to the scene to identify his vehicle. 
While I was busy at the scene of the 
accident Hayden admitted to Ptl. Baker that 
was his vehicle and that he had crashed the 
vehicle after drinking. At that time Ptl. Baker 
placed Hayden under arrest for OVI.

**********************************

On 12/14/2014 at approximately 0515, 
members of this department were advised 
by Alliance Police that they were on their 
way to our station and that they knew where 
a wanted individual was staying for the 
night. The individual in question, Michael S. 
George, is wanted by this county for failing 
to appear for sentencing on illegal assembly 
charges from this department. 

Myself, along with Ptl. Osberg, Smith 
Township Ptl. Baker, Chief Siranovic and K-
9 Jury, and three members of the Alliance 
Police Department went to 448 S. 15th St. 
to attempt to locate Mr. George. After 
knocking on the door for several minutes, a 
female, know to this officer as Theresa 
Shields, came to the door and I asked her  
if Michael George was there. We were 
already able to view Mr. George sleeping on 
the floor of the living room before we were 
able to enter the house. 

Ms. Shields allowed us to enter the house, 
at which time I placed Mr. George, who was 
laying on an air mattress, under arrest for 
his warrants.

In the course of arresting Mr. George, 
officers observed a large amount of narcotic 
paraphernalia and items used for the 
manufacture of methamphetamine. Upon a 
brief search of the area immediately 
surrounding Mr. George, officers were able 
to locate several bags containing items 
used to make meth, including a pipe cutter, 
lighter fluid, coffee filters, lithium batters and 
other unknown fluids. Also discovered were 
several bags full of pills, later identified as 
being Schedule IV narcotics, and two bags 
containing an unknown white powdery 
substance which will be required to be 
tested by BCI&I.

Multiple items were also taken, including zip 
drives, a laptop, several small baggies 
which resemble those which would be used 
to package small amounts of narcotics and 
$282.00 in cash.

Mr. George was transported to Sebring 
Police Department, and then to Mahoning 
County Jail, where he is being held on 
$14,500.00 bond for illegal assembly of 
items used to manufacture 
methamphetamine, 2925.041AC ORC and 
for possession of Schedule IV narcotics, 
2925.1 1C2a
ORC. 

When we were able to wake Mr. George up, 
he was laying on a air mattress on the floor 
with another female. On the couch in the 
same living room as Mr. George and all 
these items was Ms. Shields 14 year old 
son, which would elevate the fines imposed 
by illegal assemble. 
Additional charges are pending.

On 12/12/2014 at approximately 0058, 
myself and Sgt. Faudree were dispatched 
to 120 E. Georgia Ave. for a report of a 
possible domestic violence situation. Upon 
arriving, we spoke to a female at that 
location, later identified as Debra 
Couchman, who stated that she was struck 
in the head by a male friend of hers, Alan 
Williamson. Debra stated that her and Mr. 
Williamson are friends and that they were in 
Alliance watching the football game at 
Chives, and then they went to another 
house. 

She stated that while he was bringing her 
home, an altercation occurred in the vehicle 
and that she was able to get out of the 
vehicle and run from him, only to have him 
chase her down, hit her in the head, and 
drag her back into his vehicle. At this time, 
he brought her back to her home on 
Georgia Ave. and dropped her off. He then 
left and drove back towards Alliance, at 
which time Ptl. Baker from Smith Township 
spotted the vehicle and attempted to stop 
the vehicle. 

After failing to stop for several minutes, he 
was finally apprehended in Alliance by Ptl. 
Baker and members of Alliance PD. 

Due to the fact this incident happened in 
Alliance, I made contact with Alliance PD 
and spoke to Sgt. Yarian.

I then transported Ms. Couchman to 
Alliance Police Department so that she 
could provide APD with statements.

Nothing further is needed at this time

advised that the plates were missing. Upon 
arrival and after running the VIN number it 
was determined that the vehicle was stolen 
from Hall Motors in Alllance Ohio. Contact 
was made with the Alliance Police

On 12/06/2014 at approximately 1907 
hours, I was dispatched to Beloit Gardens 
to assist Goshen Police Department with 
Jacob Carter. 
Upon my arrival, I met with Goshen's unit 
who was on scene and he advised that the 
individual fled south of the apartment 
buildings toward the railroad tracks. He was 
unsure whether Carter went towards Derr 
Ave or went east or west down the railroad 
tracks. I then came back
into the village and proceeded to Sebring 
Tire and sat and watched the tracks for 
Carter for approximately 35 mins and 
cleared with no contact with Carter.

On 12/06/2014 at approximately 1552 
hours, while traveling north on N 21S'St in a 
clearly marked police cruiser, I observed a 
blue truck traveling at a visibly high rate of 
speed south on N 21 St near B.P.1 
Recycling. I activated my radar unit which 
confirmed the speed of 53 rnph in a clearly 
posted 35 rnph zone. I tracked the vehicle 
visually and with the radar and the units 
speed fluctuated from 53 rnph to 51 rnph for 
approximately 700 feet before I turned in a 
driveway to turn around to get behind the 
vehicle. 

I initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle in the 
700 block of N 21 St and made contact with 
the drive/owner Bret E Smith. I informed 
Smith that I stopped him for speed 53 mph 
in a clearly posted 35 rnph zone. Smith 
advised that he believed he was only going 
about 39 rnph because he had allegedly 
just turned onto N 21St St from Courtney 
Rd. 

Smith advised he was already aware that it 
was only 35 rnph in that area. Smith 
questioned when the radar unit was 
calibrated and I advised him they are done 
yearly. The radar unit has never picked up 
any sort of interference in the vicinity of this 
traffic stop. I issued Smith a citation for 
Speed 333.03 SCO 53 rnph in a clearly 
posted 35 mph zone. I advised Smith of his 
court date at MCC #3 on 12/11/2014 at 
1100 hours.

**********************************

On this date I was dispatched to 216 West 
Ohio Apt #402 for a women locked in her 
bedroom. 

Upon arrival I made entry into the 
apartment and spoke to Ms. Hanson (age 
60 and handicapped). She told me that she 
was alright, but wanted out. I could see that 
someone had tied the door closed securing 
it to a closet door knob. It was tied with a 
cord from a vacuum cleaner. 

I took photos of the way that she had been 
locked in her room before I removed the 
cords from the door. I then made entry into 
the room and spoke with Ms Hanson. She 
told me that her son Jonathan Lee Rine 
(age 36) had locked her in her room 
because he said that she had lied to him 
about Sally's being open, so he could get 
some money today.

He wanted her Debit card but she would not 
give it to him and that is when he came into 
the bedroom and grabbed her by the neck 
and chocked her. He told her that he was 
going to lock her in that room until tomorrow 
night. He said that he would not give her 
anything to eat or drink. He told her he 
would kill her and how he hated her. He 
threw her clothes into her bedside toilet. He 
then told her now all your clothes smell like 
piss. I asked her how she knew that the 
door had been secured and she told me 
that she had tried to get out. She was asked 
how long she had been in the room and she 
told me all day. She had to wait for him to 
leave before she could use the help line, 
because if he heard her calling for help he 
would have killed her. He told her that if she 
called the police that he would kill her and 
himself. 

I then spoke to the Prosecutor and was told 
to charge him with Kidnapping ORC 
2905.01 (a)(3). 

At that time I did a video taped interview 
with Ms Hanson. In it she tells me the same 
thlngs as above. I then spoke to the Chief 
and he approved Sgt Faudree and Officer 
Amabeli to come in and search for Mr. Rine. 
He also said to charge him with DV ORC 
291 9.25(A) for the assault on her In the 
bedroom. This department has been to this 
victim before on this type of charges and 
she can now see how it is getting worst with 
each time. 

The state will be the one's to bring the DV 
Charges. I made arrangement for Ms. 
Hanson to stay with a friend until we are 
able to find him. 
She is in fear for her life. A search of the 
area did not find Mr. Rine. I will obtain a 
warrant for him. A BOLO was put out for 
Jonathan Rine.


On 11/28/14 at approximately 1832 hours, I 
was dispatched to 216 W Ohio Ave Apt 402 
for a female locked in her bedroom. Upon 
arrival I met with Det. Harris who was 
already on scene and informed me of the 
call details. Myself and Det. Harris 
proceeded up to apartment 402 and found 
Lerene Hanson trapped in her bedroom. 
Her bedroom door was tied shut with a 
vacuum sweeper cord and streched across 
the
hallway and tied to another door knob to 
prevent her from getting out. I also found 
her wheelchair placed across the hallway in 
the bathroom with both wheels locked so 
she could not have access to it. Det. Harris 
processed the scene and interviewed the 
victim while I set out to locate the suspect 
Jonathan Lee Rine who was believe to be 
located at Mark Mueller's house located at 
216 W Pennsylvania Ave according to the 
victim Hanson. Upon arrival I called for 
assistance from Smith Township officer 
Osberg. Upon the other units arrival we 
approached the home and made contact 
with Mark Mueller who advised that Rine 
had just left his residence in a silver colored 
Ford Taurus allegedly en route to Alliance 
with Joseph Henry Saulsberry. I informed 
dispatch of Saulsberry who advised this 
individuals address was 236 Alabama
Ave Apt. 2 so myself and Smith Township 
officer Osberg drove there to try and meet 
with Saulsberry.

Upon arrival I observed a Ford Taurus 
parked in front of Apt. 2 that matched the 
description of the vehicle that allegedly 
picked up Rine from 216 W Pennsylvania 
Ave. I gave dispatch the Ohio plate number 
FXS3676 which returned to a Danielle L 
Chavarria. Myself and Smith Township 
officer Osberg approached Apt. 2 and made 
contact with Joseph Henry Saulsberry who 
advised Rine was not at his home. 
Saulsberry advised that he did indeed pick 
up Rine from 216 W Pennsylvania Ave and 
took him to Circle K 205 E. Ohio Ave and 
then dropped him off in front of Sebring 
Public Library 195 W Ohio Ave.

Saulsberry advised that Rine then told him 
that he was going "home" from the library. 
Saulsberry refused to allow myself and 
Smith Township officer Osberg to come into 
his apartment to verify that Rine was not 
there. After leaving there I also went to 132 
N 16th St and spoke with Jill Corbett who is 
known to possible have contact with Rine 
but advised he was not there and has not 
seen him for awhile. I decided to go back to 
236 Alabama Ave Apt 2 to see if Saulsberry 
was still home but the silver Ford Taurus 
was now I gone. I went to Apt. 3 and spoke 
with the neighbors about if they had seen 
anyone get out of the vehicle with 
Saulsberry when he arrived there but they 
informed me they did not pay any attention. 
I attempted to make contact with Apt 1 but 
no one answered the door and Apt 2 where 
Saulsberry lived was checked once more 
but no one answered the door. 

After talking to Sgt. Faudree, I stayed at 
236 Alabama Ave and waited for the silver 
Ford Taurus to return to see if Saulsberry 
had Rine with him. A little while later the 
vehicle did return and Saulsberry got out 
with 2 younger girls who went in the 
apartment with him. Myself
and Ptl. Amabeli approached Apt 2 and 
Saulsberry then gave us consent to search 
the apartment this time to look for Rine. Our 
search did not locate Rine so we left the 
residence and informed Saulsberry that if 
Rirle is seen to contact us. Saulsberry was 
also asked to give his story again about 
what happened earlier. Saulsberry's story 
the second time slightly differed from his 
first story stating that he picked Rine
up at 216 W Pennsylvania Ave and went to 
Rocky's Drive Thru and then to the Library. 
This differed from the first story since he 
stated then that they went to Circle K, when 
asked, Saulsberry advised that they 
stopped at Rocky's Drive Thru for him to get 
cigarettes and then they went to Cirlce for 
Rine and then to the Library. Myself and Ptl. 
Amabeli left the apartment and continued to 
search for Rine throughout the
night.
