DELPHOS — For theninth time since November,members of the West CentralOhio Crime Task Force exe-cuted a search warrant at ahouse in Delphos suspectedof being used for drug traf-ficking.On Thursday around 1:53p.m., task force agents andmembers of the Allen CountySheriff’s Office Swat Teamsearched the home at 209 E.Fourth St. in Delphos. Tips tolaw enforcement over the pastfew months had claimed thehouse was a “heroin house.”No one was found insidethe residence during thesearch, but police have iden-tified a 20-year-old male sus-pect who lives in that house.He is facing numerous fel-ony drug-related charges asa result of the investigation.His name was withheld bypolice until he is formallycharged.Inside the house, taskforce members found smallquantities of suspected hero-in and suspected marijuana,an unidentified pharmaceu-tical substance and anotherunidentified powdery sub-stance, numerous hypodermicsyringes and many pieces of suspected drug paraphernalia.Those items were all seizedand held as evidence in thecase.Police do not suspect thatother family members livingin this house were involvedin any illegal activity or wereeven aware of the male sus-pect’s activity.Delphos Police Chief KyleFittro stated that even thoughno suspect has yet beenarrested, that does not meanhe has gotten away with thecrimes. “This is due to com-plexities within the justicesystem. Formal charges areforthcoming when appropri-ate,” he stressed.The West CentralOhio Crime Task Forceis comprised of officersfrom the Allen CountySheriff’s Office, Van WertCounty Sheriff’s Office,Lima Police Department,Shawnee Township PoliceDepartment, Delphos PoliceDepartment and multiplestate and federal agencies.This task force operateswithin a multi-county areato combat drugs and majorcrimes.At 12:41 p.m. onWednesday, Delphos Policewere called to the 500 blockof West First Street in refer-ence to a theft from a motorvehicle complaint.Upon officers’ arrival,the victim stated someoneentered their unlocked motorvehicle and had taken moneyand the victim’s wallet frominside.At 2:10 p.m. on Tuesday,Delphos Police were calledto the 1100 block of WilliamAvenue in reference to a theftcomplaint.Upon officers’ arrival, thevictim stated someone hadforcibly gained entry intoa locked tool box cabinetattached to a vehicle and hadtaken tools from inside.At 11:19 a.m. on Monday,Delphos Police were calledto the 600 block of SouthWashington Street in refer-ence to a criminal damag-ing complaint at a residencein that area. Upon officers’arrival, they met with the vic-tim who stated someone hadcaused damage to the victim’svehicle by cutting a tire on it.ATLANTA (AP) — Thewarnings about skin cancerfrom too much sun don’t seemto be getting through.Half of U.S. adults under30 say they have had a sun-burn at least once in the previ-ous year — about the sameas a decade ago, according toa government survey releasedThursday. In fact, the modestprogress reported five years agohas been wiped out.Not only that, but women intheir 20s are going to tanningsalons almost twice a month onaverage.“I don’t know that we’remaking any headway,” said Dr.Len Lichtenfeld, the AmericanCancer Society’s deputy chief medical officer.Experts say that even oneblistering burn can double therisk of developing melanoma,an often lethal form of skincancer.The study was conducted bythe Centers for Disease Controland Prevention and was basedon a 2010 survey of about 5,000U.S. adults ages 18 to 29.The share of those who saidthey had a sunburn in the pre-ceding year dropped from about51 percent in 2000 to 45 percentin 2005, then went back up to50 percent in 2010.Researchers don’t knowfor sure why the sunburnrate picked up again, said Dr.Marcus Plescia, director of the CDC’s Division of CancerPrevention and Control.The CDC found that morethan one-third of those sur-veyed said they use sunscreenwhen they are out in the sun— a modest increase from2005. But some experts saidthe increasing rate of sunburnssuggests many people are notputting on enough sunscreenor are not re-applying it ade-quately.Also on Thursday, the CDCreleased a survey on the useof tanning beds, booths or sunlamps, and Lichtenfeld said of the findings: “I am astounded.”While about 6 percent of adults of all ages said theyhad done indoor tanning inthe previous year, the rateswere much, much higheramong young white women:about 32 percent among thoseages 18 to 21.Also, women in their 20ssaid they tanned indoors morethan 20 times in the previousyear, on average.A similar survey in 2005found about 27 percent of young women said they haddone indoor tanning.Several experts said thereis no longer significant scien-tific debate that indoor tanningcauses cancer. In 2009, tanningdevices were classified as car-cinogenic by the World HealthOrganization, which analyzed20 studies and found the riskof melanoma rose 75 percent inpeople who started indoor tan-ning before age 30.“It’s not a question of whether tanning beds causecancer anymore. We’ve beenable to prove that,” said Dr.Jerry Brewer, a Mayo Clinicdermatologist and researcher.
