Report: Suspects found hiding under insulation in Warren attic

Local News
Macy Wilson and Joseph Bernard, charged with obstructing official business in Newton Falls, Ohio

Deputies said two suspects with warrants were found to be hiding under the insulation in the attic of a Warren apartment. 

Trumbull County Sheriff’s deputies were trying to arrest 26-year-old Macy Wilson, who was believed to be staying at the Warren Heights Apartments. Residents told investigators that Wilson is a heavy drug user who has been known to avoid arrest, as they’ve called the police about her several times.

Officers spoke with a man living in the apartment, who, after questioning, admitted that Wilson and his son, Joseph Bernard, Jr., were hiding inside. He told investigators that he just got off probation and, “I’m not getting in trouble for this s**t,” according to a report. 

Deputies reported that as they were searching the apartment, they heard a faint noise coming from the ceiling. They went into the attic, finding Wilson up against the roof — trying to hide under the insulation, according to the report. 

She began uncovering Joseph, who deputies noted was buried in the insulation.

Deputies said due to their weight, the ceiling then gave away, and Wilson and Joseph fell through the ceiling into a bedroom. 

Investigators said they admitted to smoking crack cocaine prior to hiding in the attic.

Along with their previous charges, Bernard and Wilson were charged with obstructing official business and resisting arrest.
