Police: Ohio man jailed in Beaver for seeking hit man

By The Associated Press
Tuesday, June 18, 2013, 9:54 a.m.
 

An Ohio man has been charged with trying to hire a hit man during an undercover state police sting in Midland.

Online court records don't list an attorney for 50-year-old Gregory Travis, of East Liverpool, who was taken to the Beaver County Jail after he allegedly met with an undercover trooper in the parking lot of a Chippewa Township restaurant Monday night.

A police news release doesn't say who Travis wanted to kill or injure, or why, and a criminal complaint containing the charges could not immediately be obtained by The Associated Press.

Police say troopers from the Beaver barracks and police in Midland became aware of Travis on Friday and worked over the weekend to set up the meeting.

Travis faces charges including criminal solicitation to commit aggravated assault.
