JASPER — A search for wanted individuals Wednesday resulted in a man being accused of marijuana cultivation.
Jasper Police Department officers, assisted by Dubois County Sheriff’s Department deputies, went to Mill Creek Apartments, 620 W. 36th St., shortly after 1 p.m. looking for someone wanted on a warrant.
One of those deputies reported there was a strong, overwhelming odor of burnt and raw marijuana coming from the apartment of Carl L. Parks Jr., 47, who was wanted on a warrant for failure to appear in an old case involving the inhalation of toxic vapors.
After obtaining a search warrant, police reported finding a 4-foot-tall marijuana plant, grow lights, fertilizer, marijuana ready to be smoked, plus paraphernalia that included pipes and grinders. Police also alleged Parks was processing THC oil.
Authorities booked Parks into the Dubois County Security Center at 2:53 p.m. on the outstanding warrant and on new preliminary charges that included a Level 6 felony count of maintaining a common nuisance and misdemeanor counts of possessing and cultivating marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.
Also at the apartment was Eric W. Jackson, 28, who was found to have an outstanding warrant out of Dubois County for failing to appear in connection with an impaired driving case. Jackson was booked into the county security center at 2:02 p.m.
