From local sources
JASPER — K-9 units from the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department and the Jasper Police Department located 5.5 pounds of marijuana, hashish and paraphernalia Tuesday afternoon.
Officers with the two departments went to the 620 W. 36th St. apartment of 28-year-old Marcus Crowe at 2:20 p.m. in response to a complaint about possible drug activity, given the amount of people coming and going from the residence, according to Jasper police.
Upon making contact with the apartment residents, officers noticed a strong smell of marijuana coming from the unit. The officers obtained a search warrant from Dubois Superior Court and, upon executing it, allegedly located 5.5 pounds of marijuana; hashish; candy laced with tetrahydrocannabinal, or THC, the primary active ingredient in marijuana; and paraphernalia that included scales.
Police said the street value of the drugs was an estimated $10,000.
Authorities arrested Crowe and booked him into the Dubois County Security Center at 4:30 p.m. on a Class C felony count of dealing marijuana, Class D felony counts of marijuana possession and maintaining a common nuisance, and misdemeanor counts of hashish possession and possession of paraphernalia.
