These offense reports were released this past week by law enforcement agencies:
Trespass, criminal damage, burglary
A wire gate and a window, together valued at $150, were reported broken between 3:30 and 5 p.m. April 19 at an abandoned structure near 180th and Yarrow Rds. owned by David S. Zeller of Hillsboro.
Deputy Travis Wilson’s report inexplicably indicates that he was present for most of the time during which the incident occurred.
Twelve days later, a campfire, apparently started by interlopers on the same property, is thought to have been responsible for a junkyard fire that Marion firefighters battled for nearly an hour.
A state fire investigator and sheriff’s deputies were called to investigate the suspicious blaze.
Weapon, drug, marijuana, and paraphernalia; drunken driving; open container
A loaded .380 handgun designed for use as a concealed weapon; six pills, at least some of which were suspected of being opiates; a small quantity of marijuana; an open can of beer; and a pipe and grinder suspected of being drug paraphernalia were seized at 11:28 p.m. April 29 during a traffic stop in the 200 block of Miller St. in Marion’s north valley area.
Deputy Joel Womochil arrested Donald L. Wilson, 50, of Marion on suspicion of driving under the influence; possession of marijuana, paraphernalia, and a controlled substance; and transporting an open container. Wilson also was accused of illegal possession of a weapon by a person addicted to a controlled substance.
He was released 12½ hours later after posting a $12,500 surety bond.
Distributing drugs; possessing marijuana and paraphernalia; interfering with law enforcement; having no drug tax stamp
More than 11½ grams of methamphetamine — enough for more than 100 doses of the drug — were seized along with marijuana and drug paraphernalia during a traffic stop at 10:21 p.m. May 4 at 4th and Main Sts.
Occupants of the vehicle, stopped because of an outstanding warrant against one of them, were hostile, and one attempted to destroy paraphernalia, according to police chief Clinton Jeffrey.
Charles R. Luchi, 68, Marion, was arrested on suspicion of possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute it, possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia, interfering with law enforcement, and failing to have a drug tax stamp.
He was jailed in lieu of a $20,000 surety bond.
Dustin J. Luchi, 42, Marion, was arrested on outstanding warrants including for violation and revocation of probation and on suspicion of possessing methamphetamine with the intent to distribute it, possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia, interfering with law enforcement, and failing to have a drug tax stamp.
He was jailed in lieu of $70,000 in surety bonds just three days after being arrested on suspicion of possessing methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, interfering with law enforcement, driving while his license was suspended, and violating probation.
