Man charged for possessing methamphetamine
A Wellston man faces a felony-level charge in Jackson after Jackson Police officers found crystal methamphetamine at a Jackson apartment house last Tuesday, Jan. 9.

Jackson Police officers responded at 2:38 a.m. to 220 North Bennett Ave. where there had been a complaint about loud noise in one of the apartments. Upon arriving, officers heard two men inside the apartment speaking in loud voices and one was reportedly seen placing something under a rug.

After officers were admitted, they located a piece of metal with burn marks on it under the rug. In a subsequent search, they also found a burnt spoon on a counter along with a plastic bag with a crystal substance inside which was believed to be methamphetamine.

Officers were told the methamphetamine was owned by Dale A. Ohm II, 37, of 26 E. 10th St., Wellston, who was reportedly downstairs. He was located and reportedly admitted ownership of the methamphetamine. He was charged with felony-level possession of drugs.

Officers also arrested a female, Krisda Whiteman, 25, of U.S. Route 50, McArthur, who had been in an upstairs room, and who was wanted on a warrant issued by the Jackson County Sheriff's Office.
