The Logan County Sheriff’s Office responded to multiple calls of a suspicious vehicle in the Rushsylvania area Saturday.
Around 10 a.m. Donald Oldaker, 20, of West Mansfield, was driving on State Route 274, when he came up behind a dark van. The passenger of the van, who was wearing a black mask, leaned out the window and pointed a gun at Oldaker. Oldaker called the Logan County Sheriff’s Office and deputies responded to the area but were unable to locate the suspicious vehicle.
At approximately 11:30 a.m., Rushsylvania One-Stop employees called the Sheriff’s Office to report the same suspicious vehicle. The driver and passenger of the van were waving and pointing guns at the store. The occupants of the vehicle were reported to be wearing camouflage attire.
Deputies responded to a third call of a suspicious vehicle at the local park, where the suspects looked to have assault rifles and were speaking on walkie-talkies. Deputies were able to locate the vehicle. They quickly determined the suspects were not carrying real firearms, but air-soft guns.
The adult and three juveniles were questioned and taken into custody.
Collin P. Holycross (pictured), 19, 8490 TR 110 Rushsylvania, was charged with inducing panic, aggravated menacing and three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Michael S. Fiene, 17, of 8356 CR 115 Kenton, was charged with inducing panic and aggravated menacing.
The other two juveniles were charged with inducing panic and those charges have been dropped by the prosecutor’s office.
Holycross is housed in the Logan County Jail.
The parents of Fiene and the other two teens were called to pick them up at the Sheriff’s Office. They were not lodged in the Logan County Jail.
The Sheriff’s Office reports Holycross and Fiene had spent the previous night together and were on their way back from picking up the other two teens from Huntsville, when the incident unfolded.
