VAN WERT — A Delphos man was sentenced to a five-year prison term Monday morning in Van Wert County Court of Common Pleas.

Matt Brown, 52, was sentenced on a first-degree felony drug possession charge. Along with the five-year prison term, Brown must also pay a mandatory fine of $10,000 in addition to court costs. Judge Charles D. Steele gave Brown credit for 28 days already served in custody on this charge.

A 2001 Oldsmobile used in the commission of the crime was also forfeited as a result of the sentence.

Brown’s attorney had asked for a delay in sentencing due to a need for medical treatment, but that motion was denied.

LIMA – Through effective traffic enforcement the Ohio State Highway Patrol is significantly impacting the criminal element on our public roadways and in our communities. By troopers taking extra time during each traffic stop and paying close attention to possible indicators of criminal activity – what started as a traffic stop can quickly escalate into a felony arrest.

Through June of this year the Patrol has initiated 2,685 felony cases, with 46 percent related to a felony drug charge and nearly 27 percent related to a felony assault charge.

“Every day our troopers are out on the road removing felons and drugs out of our communities,” said Lt. Brant Zemelka, Commander of the Lima Post. “Taking the time to look for criminal indicators can go a long way towards a safer Ohio.”

In addition, troopers have made 4,728 drug arrests during the first six months of 2013, an increase of 18 percent over the same time-frame in 2012, and an increase of 42 percent when compared to the previous three-year average.

Drug interdiction efforts are essential to improving the quality of life in Ohio. Dangerous drugs are being trafficked into Ohio, broken down into smaller quantities and are making their way into Ohio communities.

During the first six months troopers have seized more prescription pills with stimulants up 101 percent, depressants up 87 percent and hallucinogens up 77 percent when compared to the previous three-year average.

Drivers are encouraged to call #677 to report impaired driving or drug activity.

At 6:24 a.m. Tuesday, Delphos Police were called to the 800 block of South Main Street by an individual who advised that a small child was located wandering around the area alone.

Upon officers’ arrival, they located the child, who appeared to be approximately 2 years old. Officers initially did not know the child’s name or who the child belonged to.

The initial check of the area did not reveal where the child came from or the child’s identity. At that time, officers transported the child to the Delphos Police Department and Allen County Children Services were contacted.

At approximately 8:30 a.m., officers were doing a door- to-door search in the 700/800 blocks of South Main, which resulted in locating a subject who was able to identify the child. The parents of the child were then contacted by phone.

The parents advised they had dropped the child off at the babysitter’s house in the 800 block of South Main a couple hours earlier, were now at work and were unaware the child was out wandering the area alone.

Police eventually located and spoke to all parties involved, including the individuals who were supposed to be babysitting the child and the child’s parents.

All parties came to the Delphos Police Department and were interviewed by Allen County Children Services. The child was released to the child’s parents and ACCS will follow up on the incident.

The child was found in good health and had no injuries to report from this incident.
