Another individual has been arrested for his alleged involvement with stolen all-terrain vehicles and drug-related crimes at an Ohio 99 residence.

A number of deputies responded to the Faulkner residence at 144 Ohio 99 at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday because Phillip Faulkner was reportedly having reactions from a possible drug overdose on his parents' front porch, said Josh Querin, Huron County sheriff's detective.

"When we got there, he had fled on foot," Querin said. "We were very concerned for his welfare and safety because his parents said he was suicidal."

Detective John Harris, Lt. Mike Cooksey, Deputy Shannon Lyons and Querin all began searching for Faulkner.

"We ended up finding him hiding in a camper on Bauman Road," Querin said. "He was taken into custody and charged with breaking and entering and tampering with evidence."

The breaking-and-entering charge is a fifth-degree felony, while the tampering charge is a third-degree felony, Querin said.

"He's being held on a $10,000 bond," he added.

"The breaking-and-entering charge is for him breaking into the camper and hiding from us," Querin said. "The tampering charge is for altering the parts of a suspected stolen four-wheeler."

Querin said Phillip Faulkner's involvement is definitely drug-related.

"The squad was called but he had left prior," Querin said about an ambulance arriving at the scene due to the possible overdose.

This was the second time deputies had been at this residence this week.

On Monday, the sheriff's office received a complaint of a stolen ATV from an Ohio 162 residence in rural Monroeville.

During the investigation of the theft, deputies were led to the William Faulkner residence on Ohio 99. William and Paulette are the parents of Phillip and Jaquelyn Faulkner, 23.

While investigating the theft at this residence, deputies located a marijuana grow operation on the property, along with suspected stolen ATV from Shelby.

Also located was the stolen ATV from the Monroeville residence in a ravine to the east of the residence.

Sheriff's detectives were called to the scene and a search warrant was obtained. During the search, numerous drug instruments, suspected heroin, marijuana and prescription pills were located. Assisting in the search were the Shelby Police Department and Ohio Department of Natural Resources, which was investigating a poaching complaint.

Arrested at this Ohio 99 location Monday were Jamie L. Brady, 20, on a charge of tampering with evidence, and Jaquelyn D. Faulkner, 23, for receiving stolen property and trafficking in drugs. Also charged were Paulette M. Faulkner, 44, and William A. Faulkner, 51, for possession of marijuana.
