JASPER — A report late Friday afternoon of two possibly intoxicated males asleep in a vehicle stopped at a stop sign near the Jasper Public Library led to arrests.
The Jasper Police Department was contacted at 5:58 p.m. by a caller who said when the men in the 2001 Ford were approached, they drove off southbound on Jackson Street.
Officers conducted a traffic stop at 10th and Dorbett streets. The driver, Rudy De La Rosa, 24, 3828 N. Portersville Road, Jasper, allegedly had a green, leafy substance on his shirt and police reported an odor associated with marijuana.
Authorities alleged De La Rosa was lethargic, had bloodshot eyes and failed field sobriety testing. He allegedly tested positive for marijuana in his system at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center.
Police say a search of the vehicle revealed the presence of two glass smoking pipes with residue.
Authorities booked De La Rosa into the Dubois County Security Center at 9:28 p.m. on preliminary misdemeanor counts of operating while intoxicated and possession of paraphernalia.
His passenger, Ethan R. Edwards, 26, 113 S. Brown St., Dale, was arrested and booked into the security center at 7:29 p.m. on a preliminary misdemeanor count of possession of paraphernalia.
