back to the Lewis County Detention Center by Carter County District Court for violating
the conditions of his probation.

|Cedar Hill Road burglary
juveniles will be charged this week in connection with incidents of burglary and vandalism
Friday, August 4, at Cedar Hill Road, said Sheriff Bill Lewis.
Lewis said Deputy Tom Polley responded to the call at the home of Ronnie Clark
after Clark had discovered his home had been burglarized and discovered extensive damage
to his mobile home, barn and tractor.
Lewis credited Polley's investigative skills for helping to solve the case
within three days. Polley had taken fingerprints and a plaster cast of a footprint at the
scene, helping to lead investigators to suspect the juveniles.
Lewis said charges against the juveniles, expected to be filed this week,
include second degree burglary and first degree criminal mischief.
|Three charged in prescription
Two adults and a juvenile have been charged in
connection with an incident at Noble's Pharmacy in Garrison last week.
Sheriff Bill Lewis said the pharmacy contacted his office after someone
identifying themselves as a nurse in a Portsmouth, Ohio, doctor's office called in a
prescription. After calling the office back to confirm the prescription, the pharmacy
learned that the first call had not originated from that office.
Lewis and Deputy Sam Richmond immediately went to stake out the pharmacy.
Chad W. Spears. 32, and Deborah L. Hamilton, 41, both of Portsmouth, were
arrested and charged with attempting to obtain a false prescription and were lodged in the
Lewis County Detention Center. The 17 year old juvenile was also charged but not lodged.

In this week's Agricultural Cooperative Extension column, County Agent Richard Bowling
offered advice on how to deal with yellow jackets, wasps and hornets. This nest (at left)
is a typical hornets' nest construction. How unfortunate that something so wonderfully
artistic in nature is a bane to both farmers and homeowners! This particular nest, located
under an eave of a Lewis County home, is significantly larger than the average football.
At this point in time, the homeowners and the hornets are peacefully co-existing.
