Wednesday, police officers searching for a subject wanted on a warrant found a marijuana plant growing in a Jasper apartment.
Officers with the Jasper Police Department and the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department went to an apartment at 620 W. 36th Street and located two subjects identified as Eric W. Jackson, 28, and Carl L. Parks, 47, who were both residents in the apartment.
While talking with the men, officers noted a very strong odor of burnt and raw marijuana, said police. They obtained a search warrant through the Dubois County Circuit Court and executed the search warrant at about 2:25 p.m. During the search, police located marijuana, paraphernalia, a large marijuana plant and items used for the cultivation of marijuana.
According to police, Parks claimed all ownership of the marijuana, paraphernalia, plants and growing materials. He was charged with maintaining a common nuisance, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.
During the investigation, police determined both men had outstanding warrants. Parks had two warrants for petition to revoke for inhaling toxic vapors and Jackson had a warrant for failing to appear in an operating while intoxicated charge.
The warrants were served in addition to the new charges against Parks and both men were booked into the Dubois Count Security Center.
