Maries County Sheriff's dept. makes 2 drug busts and DWI arrest

As reported to CNL by Chris Heitman, Maries County Sheriff:

During the evening hours of March 24, 2012 Sheriff’s Deputy Joe Turnbough responded to Maries County Road 628 to conduct a narcotics investigation. Upon further investigation Sheriff’s Deputy located suspected items related to the manufacture of methamphetamine, and suspected drug paraphernalia.

Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Robert H. Rollins age 28 of Dixon for felony warrants, being a parole absconder, and possession of drug paraphernalia.  Rollins remains in the Maries County Jail on a no bond warrant. Sheriff’s Deputies also arrested Amanda L. Hoffmann age 25 of Dixon for possession of drug paraphernalia. Hoffmann was taken to the Maries County Jail and released pending formal charges.

Anyone having any drug related information should contact their local law enforcement 573-422-3381 or the LANEG drug toll free tip line at 1-800-351-TIPS (you may remain anonymous). 

Also, On March 16, 2012 Sheriff’s Deputy Mike Bonham conducted a traffic stop on Route FF. During the course of the investigation Deputy Bonham suspected the driver of being intoxicated. Jacob E. Bailey age 30 of Vichy was arrested for felony driving while intoxicated. Sheriff’s Deputies also located suspected drug paraphernalia inside the vehicle. Bailey was taken to the Maries County Jail. Bailey later posted a $10,000.00 bond.

The Maries County Sheriff’s Office has noticed an increase in impaired driving with the summer months approaching. Individuals need to be aware that drunk driving kills people on a daily basis. It is never worth the risk of drinking and driving. The penalties are stiff and the fines could be as high as $10,000.00. It is also a crime to be impaired on prescription medication or illegal drugs and operate a motor vehicle. If caught you could lose your license and also be arrested for DWI. Also, with the nice weather I am asking that boaters be responsible and not drink and boat. Boat operators who drink and boat face stiff penalties.
