From Local Sources
JASPER — Police took two individuals into custody after a Saturday night traffic stop in the 600 block of West Sixth Street.
A Jasper Police Department officer stopped a 1993 Chevrolet pickup truck occupied by Wesley E. Potts, 18, 4238 N. Meadowlark Lane, Jasper, and Jaymin C. Coleman, 20, 401 E. 14th St., Jasper, at 8:58 p.m. after observing the truck without its headlights on at Sixth and Bartley streets. The officer also alleged he saw Potts put his seat belt on while driving.
While handing out a citation for the seat belt violation, the officer noticed the smell of marijuana coming from the truck. Jasper K-9 Ares was brought to the scene and gave a positive indication on the driver’s door area of the truck.
Police who reported locating marijuana in the vehicle said neither vehicle occupant would admit to owning it.
Authorities booked Potts and Coleman into the Dubois County Security Center on preliminary misdemeanor counts of marijuana possession. Potts posted bond early Sunday.
