— At 3:04 p.m. Sunday, Dollar General, Damascus, employees reported concerns about two people who were in the store and believed one of them had warrants for their arrest. The two people had left the store when deputies arrived, but the vehicle was found at the Deer Run Mobile Trailer Park. Deputies spoke to the two people, but found neither had warrants.

— Deputies were called to the BMV in Lisbon at 8:55 a.m. Monday where people in line were having arguments with patrons of other businesses in the plaza. Employees of the Columbiana County School Employees Credit Union said they and their customers were having difficulty getting into the bank because the line from the BMV is spread out across the front of the plaza.
