Police Blotter: June 25, 2013




• Two suspects were arrested following a traffic stop around 2:30 a.m. Saturday in the 1000 block of South Main Street. During the traffic stop, the officer reported he noticed a glass smoking pipe in the vehicle that contained what appeared to be burnt marijuana. After confirming the substance was marijuana, the officer searched the vehicle. 

The driver, Colby Wayne Dickey, 20, was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, less than 2 ounces. Michelle Marie Varela, 19, was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, less than 2 ounces, and possession of a controlled substance, less than 28 grams. 

• Officers responded to a disturbance call in the 200 block of Rentz Place Circle around 4 p.m. Saturday. A resident, 29-year-old Kati D. Johnson, allowed the officer into her house and said no disturbance was happening, according to police. 

The officer reportedly noticed the smell of marijuana and asked for consent to search the home. During the search, the officer located less than two ounces of marijuana and paraphernalia that Johnson admitted was hers, according to a police report. Johnson was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, less than two ounces. 



• Two men were arrested on disorderly conduct charges Saturday after police responded around 11 a.m. Saturday to a complaint of a fight at Holland Lake Park. Houston Watson, 23, and Marcus Nast, 17, were sweaty, breathing hard, with dirt and red scratches on them and were found to have been fighting, according to police. 


Evading arrest

• Police responded to the 600 block of Palo Pinto Street around 5:30 p.m. Saturday to a report of a theft in progress. Dispatchers advised the responding officer that a store employee was chasing a woman wearing a pink shirt and sweatpants who was believed to have stolen some clothing eastbound on Palo Pinto Street. 

An officer observed a woman matching the description running southbound in the 100 block of South Lamar Street. When the officer yelled for the woman to stop, she looked at him and began running northbound on South Lamar, according to a police report. The officer chased the woman on foot to the 400 block of Palo Pinto Street and caught her but the woman reportedly continued to struggle.
