Police accuse man of theft, false statementJuly 22, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — A traffic stop early Saturday resulted in the arrest of a man for making a false identification statement.
The same individual has also been preliminarily charged with felony theft from a separate incident.
A Jasper Police Department officer stopped an SUV at 14th and Mill streets at 12:32 a.m. Saturday after observing a traffic infraction. A front-seat passenger later identified as Andrew T. Masterson, 27, 1004 W. Iowa St., Holland, initially supplied police with a false name and date of birth, according to authorities.
Masterson was found to have outstanding out-of-county warrants and he allegedly admitted to lying about his identity because of those active warrants.
Authorities booked Masterson into the Dubois County Security Center at 3:11 a.m. on a preliminary misdemeanor count of making a false identity statement.
Masterson is also preliminarily charged by Jasper police with a preliminary count of Level 6 felony theft.
That charge stems from an investigation launched July 15 after two individuals reported the theft of multiple power tools from a construction project on Hospitality Drive. Masterson had been identified as the suspect and the tools were recovered during the investigation.
