On the evening of Wednesday, December 27th Marshall County Sheriff Deputies while on normal patrol noticed a vehicle having a plate attached to the vehicle that did not match the vehicle being driven.

The driver’s license was also suspended.   While conducting a further investigation officers found marijuana that the driver tried to grind into the floorboard of the vehicle. Methamphetamine and paraphernalia were also found in the vehicle.

47-year-old Joseph A. Kenawell was taken into custody and booked in for obstruction of justice, possession of methamphetamine, possession of paraphernalia, and possession of marijuana.  His cash bond was set at $3,000. 

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.
