(Delaware County, OH)  January 22, 2015—The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office responded to the Lewis Center Home Depot at 5:00 p.m. this evening when employees called to report a robbery that had just occurred. After pulling a gun on a clerk, the suspect fled the scene, then traveled south into Franklin County. He crashed his SUV on the eastbound ramp of 270 at I-71, limped to the nearby Worthington Industries parking lot, stole a truck, and crashed a second time before being taken into custody by officers with the Columbus Division of Police.


 

Justin Tucker, 31, of Columbus was taken to a local hospital to be treated for non-life threatening injuries. Following his release, he will be taken to the Delaware County Jail. He is facing multiple charges, including the first degree felony of aggravated robbery. Other charges will follow.

               According to deputies with the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office, Tucker was caught due to community members working with law enforcement. Employees of Home Depot and Worthington Industries provided prompt, detailed, and accurate information to law enforcement, aiding in the search and capture of Tucker.

‘Imagination Garden’ To be Dedicated With Open House at Orange Library Branch.

Artists Dale Johnson, Lynda Elias and Virginia Corwin to attend

Delaware, OH:  — Community members are invited to explore a place where it’s not uncommon for a dragon and Dionysus to dwell in perfect harmony–the Imagination Garden at Delaware County District Library Orange Branch.

An open house will take place on Sunday, September 21 from 2 – 4 p.m. in the garden, which is situated on the north side of the building (7171 Gooding Blvd, Delaware). Two art pieces, a tiled dragon mosaic and a mythological sculpture, will be featured and the artists behind the creations will be present to display their works and answer questions. Attendees will also enjoy light refreshments and a children’s craft.

Dale Johnson’s sculpture, Mythology –or– On the Origin of Stories, was installed last summer. The piece mimics a classic book that has been taken over by mythological creatures such as the Cyclops, a sea monster, aliens, leprechauns and Dionysus. The piece started as a 4,830 lb piece of limestone and took seven months to carve.

Artists Lynda Elias and Virginia Corwin added their touch to the garden this summer with the addition of a giant, tiled dragon. The colorful arrangement of mosaic tiles and mirrored pieces glued to several large zig-zagging panels help simulate the movement of a colossal, whimsical, winged creature flying through the garden. Earlier this spring five large, concrete panels were installed, and soon thereafter Elias was drawing the outlines for the dragon. The work of tiling all of the pieces and grouting took about one week to finish in early July with the help of more than four-dozen DCDL patrons and community members.

The establishment of the Imagination Garden was made possible through a generous bequest by local community member Pauline Way. Bequests from Mary Reed and Barbara Murray also helped make the Imagination Garden possible. Their memory is honored on two of seven benches located within the garden. The remaining five benches and other markers are available for community members to recognize, honor, and memorialize their loved ones.

For more information contact Nicole Fowles, Communications Manager, at nfowles@delawarelibrary.org or (740) 362-3861.

Delaware Librarian Receives Ohio Library Council “Librarian Of The Year.”

Librarian of the Year: Mary Jane Santos, Delaware County District Library

Mary Jane Santos, Director, Delaware County District Library (DCDL), was appointed Director at a time when the county population had exploded, becoming one of the fastest growing areas in the nation. Unfortunately, the library’s budget was not increasing to meet the needs of these new community members. Santos developed a strategy focused on two goals: pass a levy and build a branch in an area of rapidly expanding population. Under her leadership, both of these goals were accomplished. In recent years, DCDL has expanded services and facilities to keep up with the community. Santos’ strong and steady guidance has allowed staff to carry forward with innovations and changes while keeping the “small library” team feeling. During her tenure, the library has nearly doubled in size and continued to increase in circulation, visitors, programs, cardholders, and computer use. Santos has developed partnerships with schools, other libraries, higher education institutions, law enforcement, and businesses that strengthen the library’s importance in the community.

The Ohio Library Council (OLC) is continuing its tradition of honoring some of the best and brightest individuals and organizations in the Ohio public library community through its Awards and Honors program. The 2014 honorees have demonstrated outstanding
leadership and remarkable dedication to providing the best possible library service. Santos will receive her award at the Awards and Honors Luncheon on Oct. 8 at the OLC Convention and Expo in Columbus. Santos was selected based on nominations and recommendations received from her peers in the Ohio public library community.

Suspect In Custody After Assaulting Juvenile at Highbanks

The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office has a suspect in custody for the sexual assault of a juvenile female that occurred today around 12:30 pm at Highbanks Park in Lewis Center. According to Sheriff Russell Martin, “this incident is in no way related to the August 5th sexual assault of an 18-year-old male. Even though these two incidents would appear related due to proximity of time and location, based on several factors we are positive they are not connected.”

Sheriff Martin commends the alert Highbanks park ranger who observed suspicious activity, and immediately responded by detaining the suspect, assisting the victim, and notifying the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office.

The 57-year-old suspect is in custody in the Delaware County Jail awaiting charges. The victim was taken to the hospital with no serious physical injuries reported.

The Sheriff’s Office stresses that these two assaults are isolated events, where today’s incident resulted in the immediate apprehension of the suspect. Investigation into the August 5th incident is still ongoing.
