    In the early morning hours of March 14 Charlestown Officer Sgt. Richard Wagner assisted the Clark County Sheriff’s Department on a disturbance call in the 7600 block of High Jackson Road in Charlestown.  Upon officers arrival 30 year-old Matthew G. Tilford took off running on foot into the darkness towards the rear of the home and could not be located.  
    Clark County Sheriff’s Deputies determined that Tilford had allegedly made statements to family members that he wanted to conduct harm to himself.  
    Approximately three hours later, at 3:17 a.m., Sgt. Wagner was on routine patrol when he discovered the main entrance gate to the Drive-It-Auto, located at 10509 State Road 62 in Charlestown, appeared to have extensive damage to it. Sgt. Wagner turned around to investigate when he observed Tilford placing an item that was later identified as a circular saw into the front seat of a green colored Nissan passenger car.  
    Sgt. Wagner detained Tilford as well as the driver of the Nissan who was identified as 25 year-old Joshua Brown of Lexington, Kentucky.
