About 1 o’clock in the morning officers responded to the report of drug activity at 2550 Michigan Street. When officers arrived at the Michigan Street address, they made contact with the suspect 21-year-old Lance Pace of room 207.
Once an investigation was completed, Officer Baker arrested Pace and booked him into the Marshall County Jail for Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. Pace was held on a $1,500 cash bond. He was released on Monday morning at 2:30 with NO JUDICIAL REVIEW.
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 jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
