Two Jackson residents arrested on drug charge
Two Jackson residents were charged this week with having drugs and drug paraphernalia in their home. On March 17, Jackson police conducted a search at 306 N. Neal St., the home of Thad C. Schwepker, 33, and Trena Acord, 30, according to a probable cause statement. When the officers entered the home that afternoon, neither Acord nor Schwepker were home, the statement said. During a search, police found four baggies of marijuana, two marijuana pipes, and two broken pipes. The two were charged on Monday with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Both were scheduled for arraignment May 1, according to court records.
Man receives summons for fleeing police
Michael J. Barnes, 18, of 22 S. Park Ave., received a summons for fleeing a lawful detention. He was arrested when the vehicle he was riding in crashed into a house at 1225 Bloomfield St. Sunday afternoon, police spokesman Jason Selzer said. Police had attempted to curb the vehicle when its driver failed to use a turn signal. Instead of pulling over, the vehicle sped up and an unknown item was tossed from it, Selzer said. The police officer followed the vehicle from a distance and arrested Barnes when he attempted to run following the crash. The driver and another passenger were still being sought early Tuesday evening, according to Selzer.
