- An employee in the county auditor's office, Jamie Poppelriter, was reportedly threatened by an elderly man about his property at noon Wednesday.

Auditor Nancy Milliken and Poppelriter declined to pursue charges at this time. The man's photo was given to security at the courthouse.

- A possible domestic was reported on South Mahoning Avenue in Knox Township at 11:32 a.m. Wednesday. Deputies spoke to Tiffany Hughes, who was hysterical and yelling inside when they arrived.

He told deputies she had been abusing her medication and showed deputies her empty pill bottles. He agreed to leave so she could get her belongings and leave.
