Adair County Sheriff Jeff Vandewater reports one person was arrested and two others were cited last week, for drug-related offenses. 23-year old Eric Lee Brown, of Adair, was arrested in Adair, after a deputy pulled him over because he knew Brown was barred from driving. When confronted, Brown denied having his license barred and allegedly identified himself as his brother. A records check verified the man was Eric Lee Brown, who was then placed under arrest for Driving While Barred, Providing False Identification, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, for allegedly having “Dabber,” (which is commonly used with oil extracts of marijuana). Brown was later released on $2,000 bond.
At the same location, but at different times during the day on Jan. 3rd, 39-year old Donathan Eugene Ebrecht, of Adair, and 21-year old Alexis Nicole Laslo, of Urbandale, both were cited by an Adair County Deputy, for Possession of drug paraphernalia. Ebrecht was also cited for Possession of a Controlled Substance/Marijuana-2nd offense. Ebrecht and Laslo were released upon receiving their citations.
Sheriff Vandewater says a Bridgewater man was cited Jan. 3rd for Driving Under Suspension. 52-year old Henry Lewis DeGraw was released upon receiving the citation.
And, two people were arrested at midnight, Saturday, by Adair Police. 43-year old Brian Dean Plowman, of Adair, was arrested for Simple Assault and Disorderly Conduct. 34-year old Ryan James Richter, of Casey, was arrested for Public Intoxication and Disorderly Conduct. Both men were later released on $300 bond, each.
The Sheriff’s Office reports also, 43-year old Paul Allen Scheel, of Creston, turned himself-in Saturday morning to serve time for a court-ordered sentence. Scheel remained in the Jail late Sunday night while serving the balance of his sentence.
