From local sources
JASPER — A passenger in a pickup truck stopped early today on Jasper’s south side was taken to jail on a pair of charges.
The traffic stop at 12:30 a.m. at State Road 162, near Lube Way, involved a 1994 GMC pickup truck driven by Anthony J. Wilkins, 24, of 308 N. Second St., Holland, according to the Jasper Police Department. Wilkins was found to be driving on a suspended license.
After a consent to search the vehicle was given, police said, an officer found a prescription for Tramadol written out for someone other than Wilkins or his passenger, Richard E. Looney, 26, of 8136 N. Hickory Grove Road, Dubois.
Looney later admitted to stealing the prescription out of a co-workers vehicle at Monster Recycling in Jasper.
Authorities booked Looney into the Dubois County Security Center at 1:05 a.m. on charges of theft and illegal possession of a legend (prescription) drug.
