One transported following accident

WEIRTON - One person was transported with an apparent minor injury following a single-vehicle accident in the eastbound lane of U.S. Route 22 at about 5:35 a.m. today.

The Brooke County Sheriff's Department was called to two single-vehicle accidents on the highway at about that time. Other details weren't available early today.

Prison ordered in probation violation

STEUBENVILLE -Michael Mazik, 34, of Mingo Junction was sentenced on Monday to three years in prison by Jefferson County Common Pleas Judge Joseph Bruzzese Jr. for a probation violation.

Mazik pleaded guilty in December 2009 to identity fraud, misuse of a credit card and theft. Mazik, according to the sentencing entry, got personal information from a patient book his girlfriend had and used the information to obtain a credit card in the name of an elderly man. The entry stated Mazik ran up a bill of $9,355.

Mazik was sentenced to 23 months in prison. In March 2010, he was granted judicial release and placed on probation for five years.

The county prosecutor's office filed a motion to have Mazik's probation revoked because he wasn't meeting with his probation officer and was arrested on Dec. 9 by the Ohio State Highway Patrol on a charge of operating a vehicle under the influence.

Former workers sentenced in theft

STEUBENVILLE -Two former employees of Dollar General in the Hollywood City Center were placed on probation Tuesday by Jefferson County Common Pleas Judge David Henderson after pleading guilty to theft.

Danielle M. Aycock, 21, of 226 Elaine St., and Mona I. Pehanich, 45, of 420 Dresden Ave. were charged with scanning merchandise without payment. Aycock was ordered to make $3,056 in restitution, and Pehanich was ordered to repay $5,500.

The women will be on probation for three years and face up to 12 months in prison if they violate probation.

Two appointed to Toronto posts

TORONTO - The precinct committee members of the county's Democratic Party met Monday and appointed Joe Motto of 812 Ridge Ave. as the city's auditor, replacing Bob Owen, who retired.
