Man arrested on marijuana case warrantApril 19, 2019
From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — Authorities jailed a Perry County man this week on a warrant connected to a marijuana possession case.
An off-duty Dubois County jailer who recognized Chase A. Clark, 23, Tell City, and knew he was wanted spotted Clark in Huntingburg and notified authorities Wednesday, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office. The Huntingburg Police Department and Dubois County Sheriff’s Office responded, made contact with Clark and took him into custody on the warrant.
He was booked into the Dubois County Security Center at 5:35 p.m. Wednesday;
The case involving Clark dates to Sept. 11, 2018, when the Jasper Police Department charged him with marijuana possession after a report he was the man on a scooter who dropped clear plastic bags containing marijuana on the sidewalk and roadway of Third Avenue south of State Road 164.
Clark failed to appear for court dates in December and January, which resulted in the court issuing a warrant for his arrest Jan. 17.
During an appearance Thursday in Dubois Superior Court, Clark’s request for pauper counsel was approved and his bond was set at $750. The court noted that, if he posts bond and fails to appear at the next hearing, a warrant will be re-issued and Clark will remain held pending disposition of the case.
