Possession of methamphetamines

Ricky Boaldin, 25, of Marion, was arrested Dec. 3 on charges of possession of drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia when a vehicle he was in was initially stopped for speeding in the 1000 block of N. Cedar St. at 9:08 p.m.

Police said approximately 0.6 grams of methamphetamines were confiscated after a canine search. Two glass pipes and a glass mirror also were confiscated.

In his report, officer Lee Vogel indicated two people were arrested, both of whom were suspected of using methamphetamines. However, Marion County Jail roster shows that Boaldin was the only person arrested on possession of controlled substance and possession of methamphetamines that day.

Criminal damage to property

Heather Looney, 24, of Marion, reported $25 dollars of damage to five decorated pumpkins at 8:20 a.m. Dec. 5 after an unnamed person allegedly trespassed, yelled, pounded on her door, and finally left damaging her pumpkins at 516 S. 3rd St.

The unnamed person faces charges of criminal damage to property, criminal trespassing, and disorderly conduct.


A Marion resident was arrested on charges of burglary, theft, and possession of drugs at 5:46 p.m. Thursday in the 100 block of Billings St. after two witnesses told police that the suspect had allegedly stolen items that belonged to the City of Marion that were stored at their house.

Officer Duane McCarty obtained a search warrant when he noticed items under the suspect’s porch that matched the witnesses’ descriptions. In his report, he said a second search warrant was issued when drug paraphernalia was observed “in plain view” inside of the suspect’s residence while officers were attempting to locate other items that belonged to the City of Marion.

Police recovered eight empty five-gallon containers for hydrogen peroxide, one five-gallon container of hydrogen peroxide, one container of powdered chloride, one syringe in a black sheath, a green pill bottle and small baggies allegedly with meth residue, a cell phone, three prescription pill bottles with unknown pills inside, all with an estimated value of $137.
