Fraud Investigation Imposter Boone County Sheriff Attempting Money Scam

The Boone County Sheriff’s office is warning residents of a new scam.

Authorities have been receiving complaints of a man identifying himself as a Boone County Sheriff’s Deputy Marshall or Lieutenant and has called approximately six people advising them they have an active arrest warrant. The suspect goes on to say that they can rectify the situation by going to Kroger and purchasing two $500 debit cards. Once the card is activated the victim is told to call him back and read him the identifying number on the back of the card.

The Boone County Sheriff’s Office and its personnel have never conducted business like this and is warning residents of the scam. Authorities are not aware of anyone who actually went through with the purchase of the debit card but the sheriff’s office is asking anyone who is contacted by this man to report it immediately. So far the suspect has used the same telephone number (859) 206-1812.

Anyone who can provide information as to the identity of the man is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (513) 352-3040 or the Boone County Sheriff’s Office at (859) 334-2175.

Drug Dog Sweep More Than 11 Pounds of Marijuana Found in Stow, OH Hotel

Two Oregon men face felony charges after drug task force agents raided their Stow hotel rooms and found more than 11 pounds of marijuana, according to court records.

Howard Huang, 22, and Thai Ngo, 31, both of Beaverton, Oregon, are charged with second-degree felony drug trafficking. Both posted 10 percent of a $50,000 bond after their initial appearances in Stow Municipal Court.

The Summit County Drug Task Force reported they received a tip on April 9 that Huang was selling drugs from inside the Courtyard Marriott on Bridgewater Parkway, off Steels Corners Road.

Investigators checked with the hotel and found Huang rented two rooms, one of which was occupied by Ngo, court records say.

Task force officers watched the hotel the next day. They waited until Ngo left the hotel to bring a drug-sniffing dog inside the hotel.

The dog alerted police to drugs inside Huang’s room, according to court records.

Officers knocked on Huang’s door and he allowed them to search his room. Officers reported finding a black backpack that smelled like raw marijuana and text messages on Huang’s cellphone related to drug dealing, court records say.

An Ohio State Highway Patrol trooper stopped Ngo on his way back from Wal-mart. He told the trooper that he was staying with a friend from Mogadore and denied knowing anything about drug dealing at the hotel, according to court records.

The trooper found Ngo had just purchased a suitcase, tin foil and citronella oil, which is used to transport drugs without detection, court records say.

Huang told police he had been traveling with another person for three days but didn’t know the man’s name. Ngo called Huang while police were searching their hotel rooms.

Officers found four cellphones, more than $2,600 and the marijuana during a search of the rooms, according to court records.
