Blotter: Man with warrants jailed, gains additional charge

An officer dispatched to a domestic disturbance report in the area of Mayhill and Mills roads on Tuesday night ended up booking a man into jail for active warrants and possession of a controlled substance.

The initial report said that a man and woman were walking in the area and the man appeared to be acting aggressively and the woman seemed frightened.

The officer located the couple in the 500 block of North Mayhill Road and after identifying both, he found that the man had active arrest warrants.

After the man was arrested and taken to jail, it was found that he had allegedly discarded a baggy of methamphetamines in the rear seat of the officer’s vehicle. He was booked into the jail on the outstanding warrants and a charge of possession of a controlled substance.
