A week ago on Saturday, January 6th officers from the Plymouth Police Department made two arrests. One was a homeless person and the second a man from Chicago. 

At about 6:15 in the morning on January 6th Plymouth Police were dispatched to the Economy Inn multiple times for a female that was repeatedly knocking on motel room doors. 

The female was identified as 38-year-old Amanda Minix of Plymouth who was listed as homeless.  Minix refused to stop disrupting those who were staying at the Economy Inn and was detained for her conduct. 

While detaining Amanda Minix she resisted officers which resulted in her being taken into custody and transported to the Marshall County Jail.  She was booked in for pending criminal charges for disorderly conduct and resisting law enforcement.  Her cash bond was set at $750. 

At approximately 5:50 in the afternoon on January 6th Plymouth Police conducted a traffic stop on U.S. 30 in the westbound lanes.

During Officer Lovely’s investigation it was discovered that the driver of the vehicle, 50-year-old Juan Sanchez of Chicago was operating the motor vehicle without a valid license and had an active arrest warrant out of Lake County Indiana. 

Juan Sanchez was taken into custody and transported to Marshall County Jail.  He was booked in for the Lake County warrant and the new charge of operating a vehicle while suspended with a prior charge.  His cash bond was $500 for the new charges.

Readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable cause is a mere 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.
