Washington Co. Sheriff's Office - 12/20/18 

On Wednesday, December 19, 2018, at 7:41 a.m., Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies served a search warrant at a residence in the 1100 block of Southwest 182nd Avenue in the Aloha community. Deputies had obtained a warrant to search the residence of Daniel Marcum for evidence of drug distribution.

During execution of the search warrant, deputies discovered deplorable conditions inside the residence. In total, five individuals were detained from inside the home.

Daniel Marcum, 22, was arrested for unlawful delivery of oxycodone, unlawful possession of methamphetamine, and possession of illegal fireworks.

Daniel’s parents, Scott Marcum, 51, and Kelly Marcum 50, were both arrested for first-degree animal neglect after their miniature Greyhound was found with an untreated broken leg, lying in its own waste in a bathroom. Deputies transported the canine to a local animal hospital.

Daniel’s sister, Jada Marcum, 20, and her boyfriend, Alaeldin Mohamed, 21, were both arrested for endangering the welfare of a minor due to their one-year-old daughter being subjected to the living conditions of the residence. Mr. Mohamed was also booked on a Washington County parole violation. The child was taken into the protective custody of the Department of Human Services Child Welfare.

All five individuals were lodged at the Washington County Jail.

The residence has been the subject of a large number of law enforcement calls for service dating back to July and deputies have conducted numerous proactive enforcement missions since.

The inter-agency Washington County Tactical Negotiations TeamCrisis Negotiation Unit, and Sheriff’s Office Remotely Operated Vehicle Team assisted during the search warrant.
