Woman wanted locally arrested in Princeton

From Local Sources

PRINCETON — The Gibson County Sheriff’s Department took a Jasper woman into custody early Sunday in Princeton on drug-related allegations and on an active warrant out of Dubois County.


A deputy stopped a 2000 Dodge Stratus at 8:49 a.m. Sunday on Princeton’s Brumfield Avenue after observing the car traveling left of center. One passenger, Cassidy E. Engleman, 20, 309 1/2 West Fourth St., Jasper, reportedly began acting erratically and would not cooperate with the deputy’s investigation.

The sheriff’s department reported that Engleman gave a false name. Once she was identified, police learned she was wanted in Dubois County for failing to appear in a 2017 case in Dubois Superior Court in which she is charged with a Level 5 felony count of trafficking with an inmate, a Level 6 felony count of methamphetamine possession and misdemeanor counts of possession of a controlled substance, possession of a synthetic drug or lookalike and possession of paraphernalia.

Police say Engleman is being preliminarily charged in Gibson County with Level 6 felony counts of possession of methamphetamine and unlawful possession of a hypodermic needle, plus misdemeanor counts of false identity statement, resisting arrest, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia (prior).

Engleman is being held in the Gibson County Jail on a $750 bond and on a hold for Dubois County authorities.
