Man jailed after unfinished community service

From Local Sources

JASPER — Police booked a man into the Dubois County Security Center Friday on a warrant related to his failure to complete his community service obligation in a drug paraphernalia case.

Josh T. Blume, 28, Indianapolis (formerly of Huntingburg), was convicted of misdemeanor paraphernalia possession in August 2016. His sentence at that time was suspended to probation and he was ordered to complete 24 hours of community service.

In October 2016, after authorities told the court Blume had completed just 9.25 hours of that community service time, he was ordered to serve two days in the Dubois County Security Center.

Blume never appeared at the jail to serve out that commitment, prompting the issuance of a warrant for his arrest. The bench warrant was re-issued in 2018, and at 10:53 a.m. Friday, Blume was booked into the security center on the active warrant.

Court records also indicate Blume still owes $659 in court costs and fines associated with the case.
