About 9:15 on Friday, February 16th, Marshall County Officer Wozniak stopped a silver 2009 Kia passenger car in the area of Williams and Miner Streets.
The officer detected the odor of marijuana emitting from inside the vehicle. A search of the vehicle resulted in three pipes, a marijuana grinder, two different types of pills with one being a controlled substance and a small amount of marijuana wax.
The passenger in the vehicle, Zakrey Early, was booked into the Marshall County Jail for Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Paraphernalia, Possession of a Controlled Substance and Unlawful Possession of a Legend Drug. He was held on a $3,000 cash bond until Sunday evening when it was paid. He has an initial hearing in Marshall Superior Court II on March 20th.
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.
