Frazeysburg Police Department News

The police department has been very busy this past month, which is why we have not posted much recently. That being said, we will be updating statistics on activity, as well as pictures from recent events, very soon. Before that, however, we would like to take this opportunity to discuss illegal dumping. It is not something that most people think about, but it is something everyone should be familiar with, as we have seen it occur in town on occasion. The long and short of it is, do not deposit litter on lands or in containers that do not belong to you (unless specifically allowed), and make sure that all materials are disposed of in a safe and proper manner. Failure to do so can result in a third degree misdemeanor charge, so please, if you have any questions, let us know. *** FROM THE OHIO REVISED CODE/APPLICABLE VILLAGE ORDINANCE *** 3767.32 Littering. (A) No person, regardless of intent, shall deposit litter or cause litter to be deposited on any public property, on private property not owned by the person, or in or on waters of the state unless one of the following applies: (1) The person is directed to do so by a public official as part of a litter collection drive; (2) Except as provided in division (B) of this section, the person deposits the litter in a litter receptacle in a manner that prevents its being carried away by the elements; (3) The person is issued a permit or license covering the litter pursuant to Chapter 3734. or 6111. of the Revised Code. (B) No person, without privilege to do so, shall knowingly deposit litter, or cause it to be deposited, in a litter receptacle located on any public property or on any private property not owned by the person unless one of the following applies: (1) The litter was generated or located on the property on which the litter receptacle is located; (2) The person is directed to do so by a public official as part of a litter collection drive; (3) The person is directed to do so by a person whom the person reasonably believes to have the privilege to use the litter receptacle; (4) The litter consists of any of the following: (a) The contents of a litter bag or container of a type and size customarily carried and used in a motor vehicle; (b) The contents of an ash tray of a type customarily installed or carried and used in a motor vehicle; (c) Beverage containers and food sacks, wrappings, and containers of a type and in an amount that reasonably may be expected to be generated during routine commuting or business or recreational travel by a motor vehicle; (d) Beverage containers, food sacks, wrappings, containers, and other materials of a type and in an amount that reasonably may be expected to be generated during a routine day by a person and deposited in a litter receptacle by a casual passerby. (C) (1) As used in division (B)(1) of this section, "public property" includes any private property open to the public for the conduct of business, the provision of a service, or upon the payment of a fee, but does not include any private property to which the public otherwise does not have a right of access. (2) As used in division (B)(4) of this section, "casual passerby" means a person who does not have depositing litter in a litter receptacle as the person's primary reason for traveling to or by the property on which the litter receptacle is located. (D) As used in this section: (1) "Litter" means garbage, trash, waste, rubbish, ashes, cans, bottles, wire, paper, cartons, boxes, automobile parts, furniture, glass, or anything else of an unsightly or unsanitary nature. (2) "Deposit" means to throw, drop, discard, or place. (3) "Litter receptacle" means a dumpster, trash can, trash bin, garbage can, or similar container in which litter is deposited for removal.

(C) Whoever violates section 3767.13, 3767.19, or 3767.32 or, being a natural person, violates section 3767.30 of the Revised Code is guilty of a misdemeanor of the third degree. The sentencing court may, in addition to or in lieu of the penalty provided in this division, require a person who violates section 3767.32 of the Revised Code to remove litter from any public or private property, or in or on waters of the state.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to our brother, Shane Mohler, at the Fire Department. He was called from this Earth far too soon, and he will be dearly missed. Please join us in showing support to his family, and his community. Rest easy, 449.

It may be cold, but the festival is still on. Come on down and have some fun! We’ll be out here at Frazeysburg Elementary until 7:00 PM.

Big thanks to the Frazeysburg Fire Department for putting on a wonderful Community Halloween Party! It was great to see all the kids having a blast (and the free hot dogs were pretty good, too). If you have any pictures you’d like us to share, send them our way!

Don’t forget, tonight is the Community Halloween Party at the Fire Department. Lots of good food and fun, so be sure to come on down and join us!

We may only have one traffic light, but that doesn’t mean the rules of the road are any less important! Always yield to oncoming traffic when turning left, even if you think you can make it. It’s not worth a ticket, it’s not worth your car, and it’s certainly not worth your life. Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt in this crash, but please drive safely!

We see quite a few loose dogs in and around the village. All dogs should always be leashed or otherwise restrained, and you can be cited if your dog is not. Please see Ohio Revised Code section 955.22 for more details, as our village ordinance is the same. That being said, if you have lost your dog, or if you wish to add one to your family, please check with the Muskingum County Dog Warden and Adoption Center. They have more than they can handle, and they could use some good homes!

Enjoying some lunch at PV's Pumpkin Patch, located just outside the village on Vickers Hill Rd at Canal Rd. Great fun, and great food from Susie's Snack Shack! Even Brutus Buckeye came down!

Our hearts and minds are with the victims and families of the unspeakable tragedy in Las Vegas. We thank all those who helped, and who continue to help, in this time of crisis, including our brothers and sisters who ran toward the sounds of danger.

Domestic Violence is a major issue, and we take it very seriously in our community. Do not hesitate to call your local authorities if you feel you are a victim of DV. And remember, physical violence does not actually need to occur! *** FROM THE OHIO REVISED CODE*** 2919.25 Domestic violence (A) No person shall knowingly cause or attempt to cause physical harm to a family or household member. (B) No person shall recklessly cause serious physical harm to a family or household member. (C) No person, by threat of force, shall knowingly cause a family or household member to believe that the offender will cause imminent physical harm to the family or household member.

We haven't heard of it happening in the village yet, but telephone scams are becoming more prevalent nationwide. The callers will threaten you with arrest for various reasons if you do not submit a payment immediately over the phone. Do not fall for this. The police department, or any other law enforcement agency, will never threaten such action over the phone, and will never demand that immediate payments be made. Let your relatives know about these scams so you don't become a victim, and if you have any questions or concerns, please be sure to reach out to your local law enforcement agency. Stay safe, everyone!

Join us next month for the 2nd Annual Frazeysburg Fall Festival and Fundraiser. Hope to see you there!
