These offense reports were released this past week by law enforcement agencies:


Criminal damage

Unspecified damage, estimated to cost $20 to repair, was reported to have occurred between 6 a.m. May 24 and 8:30 a.m. May 27 to Kelly Wonser’s residence in the 300 block of E. Main St. in Goessel, according to an offense report released Monday.


Possession of marijuana, THC,
and drug paraphernalia

An 18-year-old woman and a 24-year-old man were arrested on drug charges, and a 14-year-old boy was turned over to his parents after a 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier was stopped at 9:11 p.m. June 5 at C and Ash Sts. for not having working headlights.

Officer John Huebert called for deputy Joshua Meliza’s drug dog, Karma, to sniff outside the Chevy. After Karma indicated drugs might be inside, a grinder, a vape pen, and a plastic bag containing 0.05 of a gram of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, were found, according to Huebert’s report.

Driver Ariana Seaman, 18, Hillsboro, and adult passenger, Tanner Jasper, 24, Hillsboro, were booked into Marion County Jail on suspicion of possessing marijuana, THC, and drug paraphernalia in addition to the headlight violation.

A 14-year-old boy also in the car was released to a parent from Florence.

Seaman was released from jail two days later after posting a $1,500 bond.

Jasper, who has been jailed 17 times previously for a total of 331 days between Aug. 12, 2018, and Sept. 14, 2022, was being held in lieu of a $1,500 bond.

Vehicle burglary

A grass trimmer and a cordless saw and battery, together valued at $500, were reported stolen between May 12 and 29 from Richard Calam’s pickup truck parked behind his residence in the 200 block of S. Washington St.

Officer Duane McCarty’s report does not indicate whether there were signs of forced entry in the burglary, which Callam did not report until June 7.
