At about 7:45 p.m. the deputy stopped the vehicle that was occupied by the driver and a juvenile passenger.

The driver of the vehicle was identified as 27-year-old Katelynn Heltzel of Quince Road in Plymouth.

Katelynn Heltzel was transported to the Marshall County Jail and booked for Possession of a Controlled Substance as a Class A Misdemeanor with additional charges that may be forthcoming.

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.
