Area law enforcement face busy weekend

Sunday, August 24, 2008

An arrest during the weekend might help the Brazil City Police Department close the books on several open theft investigations, while the Clay County Sheriff's Department and Clay County Probation Department worked together to arrest an alleged drug dealer.

A local resident contacted the Brazil City Police Department when they heard someone messing around a vehicle outside their home shortly before midnight Saturday.

Although details are being limited to protect the integrity of the investigation, Police Chief Terry Harrison confirmed officers arrested Corky J. Lutz, 18, Brazil, for preliminary charges of unauthorized entry of auto, theft and resisting law enforcement.

Although an undisclosed number of unidentified juveniles were detained and questioned for their alleged involvement in the incident, Harrison was unable to provide more information because they were juveniles.

"We believe that this arrest will help solve several of the open theft cases in the past few weeks," Harrison told The Brazil Times Sunday evening. "We are still investigating this matter."

Lutz was taken to the Clay County Justice Center and booked in on a $7,000 cash bond. The case will be reviewed by the Clay County Prosecutor's Office for further potential charges and Lutz will appear for formal court arraignment per the court schedule.

On Friday, members of the CCSD assisted members of the probation department perform a routine search at Penny J. Meeks' home, which was less than 1,000 feet from a public housing facility in Brazil.

According to CCSD Chief Deputy Rob Gambill, officers found various drug related items, paraphernalia, marijuana, more than three grams of methamphetamine and an undisclosed substance used to increase the amount of methamphetamine for more potential sales.

Meeks, 45, was arrested and booked into the CCJC preliminary charges of dealing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine and possession of marijuana.

Gambill said the charge of habitual substance offender was added to Meeks charging information because she has two prior unrelated substance offense convictions.

Meeks was issued a $50,000 cash bond at the jail and will appear in court for formal arraignment per the court schedule.

Also on Friday, a BCPD patrolman performed a traffic stop that ended in the arrest of suspect wanted on three warrants.

When officers ran a background check on Kristin Sauer's, 37, Terre Haute, driver's license, they discovered the three separate warrants for three separate charges of criminal mischief.

Sauer was taken into custody and booked into the CCJC on a $7,000 cash bond.

While incarcerated, her vehicle was impounded. During a search, officers discovered less than 30 grams of marijuana.

Jail officials added the additional preliminary charge of possession of marijuana to Sauer's booking information.

With a $5,000 cash bond, Sauer's case will be reviewed by the prosecutor's office and she will appear for formal arraignment per the court schedule.
