MEIGS COUNTY — The Meigs County Sheriff’s Office is conducting investigations into several reports of theft.
The office received a call at 4:30 a.m., Tuesday of a 1995 Jeep missing from a residence on Ball Run. The Jeep was later located in a ditch on Horner Hill and Kingsbury Road. According to Sheriff Robert Beegle, it appears the vehicle was being turned around and had backed into the ditch.
At 6:15 a.m., Jerry Tillis, of Kingsbury Road, reported his 2000 Buick LeSabre was missing. The vehicle was later located in a wooded area behind the cemetery on Ball Run Road.
