Serving arrest warrant leads officers to arrest two local men

Friday, February 17, 2006

While trying to serve an arrest warrant for a probation violation at a Brazil home located at 209 W. Collins St., two men were arrested by the Clay County Sheriff's Department Thursday evening.

Upon arrival at the home of George James Culbertson, 33, officers found James Eugene Anderson Jr., 29, in the front yard on a cell phone.

Unsure whether he was the subject of the warrant, officers attempted to get Anderson's attention. He ignored them and proceeded to get into a truck where a large knife was located on the seat in plain view of the officers.

At the same time, Culbertson, who they were looking for, came out on the porch to see what was going on.

Home Detention Officer John Tabasco asked him to take a seat while officers searched the home, which Culbertson complied to without incident.

When asked to identify himself, Anderson got into a scuffle with Deputy Jason Frazier before getting out of the vehicle to be handcuffed.

Frazier discovered a capped needle, a plastic baggy and a glass pipe in Anderson's pockets during a pat down. The contents of the baggy did not test positive for drugs, but the glass pipe's residue was positive for Methamphetamine.

Nothing was discovered during the search of Culbertson's home by Brazil City Patrolman Jeff Bucklin, Reserve Deputy Larry Richmond, Clay City Marshal Terry Skaggs and Det. Terry Silvers.

Detective Sergeant Rob Gambill took both men into custody without further incident.

Arrested on preliminary charges of Possession of Methamphetamine and Reckless Possession of Paraphernalia, James Eugene Anderson Jr. was booked into the Clay County Jail with a bond of $7,000 with 10 percent cash.

George James Culbertson was arrested for the warrant charge of Petition to revoke probation and booked into the Clay County Jail without a cash bond.

Clay County Circuit Court Judge Robert Pell signed the Probable Cause statements from the arrests Friday afternoon, which will allow both men to remain in custody until their arraignments next week.
