From Local Sources
JASPER — Police lodged a man in the Dubois County Security Center Thursday night after accusing him with false informing.
Jasper Police Department officers were in the 14th and Dewey streets area on an unrelated matter when an officer noted the smell of burnt marijuana coming from a nearby residence.
During the ensuing investigation, Andrew W. Lyon, 38, 1407 Dewey St., allegedly gave police a bogus name and other identifiers. He was also alleged to have spelled the name initially supplied to police differently when asked again about his identity, and to have given two different Social Security numbers.
When asked why he had been deceptive, Lyon allegedly said he was named in a Martin County warrant for unpaid tickets. Police report Lyon was found to be wanted on a no-bond warrant issued last month out of Knox County for a probation violation.
Authorities booked Lyon into the Dubois County Security Center at 9:33 p.m. on a preliminary misdemeanor count of false informing.
