Accused prowler arrested for OWI

From Local Sources


JASPER — The Jasper Police Department says the Friday arrest of a Pike County man is in relation to several complaints during the week of a prowler peeping in windows.

Each time officers had responded earlier in the week, police said, the male was gone when units arrived. Then, after receiving another complaint at 7:26 p.m. Friday, police arrived and located Michael D. Webb, 40, 9865 E. State Road 56, Otwell, who was attempting to leave in a 2012 Chrysler Sebring.

Police said Webb, who was identified as the suspect in the voyeurism, was under the influence of marijuana and had been drinking. A blood draw at Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center returned positive for marijuana and Webb’s blood alcohol content also registered .04%.

Webb was booked into the Dubois County Security Center at 12:59 a.m. Saturday on preliminary charges of Level 6 felony stalking and voyeurism and misdemeanor operating while intoxicated. He was initially held with no bond.

The Dubois County Sheriff’s Office assisted at the scene.

Webb has an extensive area arrest history, with prior convictions for voyeurism in Dubois and Vanderburgh counties. Other convictions include indecent exposure, sexual misconduct with a minor, obstruction of justice, resisting arrest and failure to register as a sex offender.

Jasper police announcing the arrest reminded the public to call authorities as soon as possible once they see something suspicious.
