Woman jailed on failure-to-appear warrant

From Local Sources


JASPER — The Dubois County Sheriff’s Office brought a woman from Johnson County to the Dubois County Security Center on Wednesday to answer to a local warrant charging her with drug-related counts.

The charges against Arrielle R. Tomlinson, 34, 2602 Birk Drive, Jasper, stem from an October 2018 traffic stop by the Huntingburg Police Department, according to court documents.

Tomlinson was stopped because the pickup truck she was driving did not have license plate lights. During the stop, it was allegedly determined she was violating specialized driving privileges and was found to be in possession of methamphetamine, marijuana and paraphernalia.

Authorities cited Tomlinson into court and, after she failed to appear for two initial hearing dates, a warrant for her arrest was issued Nov. 28. She is charged with a Level 6 felony count of possession of methamphetamine and misdemeanor counts of possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia and violating driving conditions.

During an appearance Thursday in Dubois Superior Court, a preliminary not-guilty plea was entered on her behalf, Tomlinson’s request for pauper counsel was granted and her next court date was set for June 18.

She remains lodged in the security center today.
