From Local Sources
JASPER — The Jasper Police Department placed a man under arrest overnight, accusing him of obstruction of justice and possession of paraphernalia.
Police were dispatched at 11:53 p.m. Tuesday to the report of suspicious individuals at a passenger car in a parking lot in the 400 block of West Fifth Street. An arriving officer reported that Joshua R. Cummins, 31, 314 W. Ninth St., Jasper, was observed running from the rear of a black passenger car before getting in the driver’s seat.
Authorities say Cummins began grabbing with his right hand between the driver’s seat and console, ignoring commands to show his hands. An officer said he could see Cummins had a knife in his right hand and appeared to be searching under the driver’s seat with his left hand.
After additional commands to show his hands, Cummins dropped the knife and put his hands up. He and a female were detained for further investigation.
Police report finding drug paraphernalia that included a red plastic straw with suspected methamphetamine residue and a broken glass pipe in a search that followed a positive indication by a Jasper K-9 brought to the scene.
Authorities booked Cummins into the Dubois County Security Center at 3:43 a.m. today on preliminary charges that included a Level 6 felony count of obstruction of justice and a misdemeanor count of possession of paraphernalia.
