A Brazil couple was arrested Thursday evening at their home when officials stopped by for a routine probation check.
Several officers of the Clay County Sheriff's Department assisted the Clay County Adult Probation Department when they arrived at Laura and Joshua Williams' home at 25 South Chicago St. around 6 p.m.
Laura was on probation for conviction on a charge of conversion, while her husband Joshua had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in court on charges stemming from an ATV accident earlier this year.
On Feb. 24, Joshua was airlifted to Wishard Hospital after flipping an ATV on top of himself while driving it illegally on a city road in an area near 121 N. Chicago Ave.
Because marijuana and various drug paraphernalia were discovered inside the home, the couple were taken into custody and booked into the Clay County Justice Center.
Laura, 33, was charged with probation violation and additional preliminarily charges of possession of paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.
Joshua, 26, was booked on the warrant charges of driving while never licensed and operating a vehicle while intoxicated, and the additional preliminary charges of possession of a controlled substance, possession of paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.
According to jail officials, both Laura and Joshua remained incarcerated Friday evening on a $7,000 cash bond with no 10 percent allowed while they await formal arraignment on the court calendar.
