MARIETTA — Washington County Sheriff’s Department released the following reports on Oct. 16:

* On Sept. 29, while working at the Barlow Fair, deputies became aware of an incident involving a 20-year-old male and a female juvenile. Zachary Ray Hinton, 20, 871 Warren Chapel Road, Fleming, asked a juvenile for assistance moving a vehicle as he had been drinking and did not feel safe doing it alone. After moving the vehicle, Hinton and the juvenile began kissing; however, the victim exited the vehicle when Hinton wanted to go further. It was reported that Hinton forced the juvenile to participate in a sexual act; however, she was able to escape from him after he had been told no several times. On Oct.11, detectives met with Hinton who stated the acts were consensual and that he thought the juvenile was older. Detectives further became aware that Hinton knew the victim’s family and knew the victim’s age. Hinton was placed under arrest and charged with unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. Hinton was transported to the Washington County Jail for processing.

* On Oct. 9, Deputy Zide was patrolling State Route 7 near Veto Road. A Chevy vehicle was observed committing traffic violations. A traffic stop was conducted on the vehicle, and contact was made with the driver, Johnathan Hess, and passenger, Mikaela Schramm. While speaking with the couple, both appeared nervous. Hess pulled out a large sum of cash when asked for his information, and denied any wrongdoing. Schramm did admit to having marijuana at which time K9 Rita was taken around the vehicle with a positive indication being made on the passenger door.

The occupants were asked to step out of the vehicle and once the search was completed, contact was made with Hess and Schramm again. Hess and Schramm were standing in front of the patrol vehicle and observed on the ground beside Schramm was a clear baggie. Deputy Zide was advised that Hess had swallowed/licked the baggie clean as it contained meth and/or meth residue. Hess then threw/spit the baggie on the ground so as not to get caught with it.
