JASPER — A complaint about suspected drug use at a Jasper hotel led to a felony arrest Monday morning.
Jasper Police Department officers went to the Days Inn, 272 Brucke Strasse, at 10:47 a.m. to investigate the complaint. There, they made contact with Jeremy W. Bryant, 21, 880 Conrad Ave., who was walking away from the hotel.
Police said a marijuana pipe was located during a pat-down. Officers then asked for — but were denied — consent to search a duffle bag Bryant was carrying. Jasper’s K-9 was deployed at the scene for an open-air sniff. The dog indicated to the presence of the odor of a controlled substance at the duffle bag. A search of the duffle bag then revealed another marijuana pipe, digital scales and 68 grams of marijuana that was individually bagged.
Police arrested Bryant and booked him into the Dubois County Security Center at 1:30 p.m. on a Class C felony count of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, plus misdemeanor counts of marijuana possession and possession of paraphernalia.
Another officer made contact with two other men who were also walking away from the Days Inn. One of them, Tyler Russell, 23, of 109 Brown St., Dale, was taken into custody when it was discovered he had an active body-attachment warrant for a small claims case in Dubois County. He was also lodged at the security center.
