Saturday night about 9:45 the Plymouth Police Department was dispatched to the men’s bathroom in the rear of Wal-Mart for a male with a hypodermic needle who was in and out of consciousness.
38 year old Jason Rasco of Valparaiso was found in the restroom with several needles and a substance which field-tested positive for heroin.
After being cleared medically he was transported to the Marshall County Jail and lodged on a $3000 cash bond.
Rasco was given a court date of October 4, 2016.
Listeners and readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable cause is merely an allegation that a crime has been committed and that there is only probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. They are presumed innocent throughout the proceedings and are entitled to be represented by counsel and entitled to a trial by jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
