Crothersville Police didn’t get their man, but did arrest 10 residents at two locations last Tuesday, April 24, on a variety of drug charges.
Authorities had an arrest warrant for Daniel Wiesman, 34, of 107 N. East St. on a charge of intimidation. When they went to that residence around 6:30 p.m. officers were told that he was at 306 W. Walnut.
While at the East Street residence officers reported they detected the odor of marijuana. As they went to the Walnut Street residence on the town northwest side, they began the process of obtaining a search warrant for the East Street location.
When they arrived at 306 W. Walnut, they did not find Wiesman, but did location evidence of drug activity.
Police found seven people in the house, along with marijuana, methamphetamine, syringes and drug paraphernalia.
Arrested were the resident of the mobile home, Gary Martin Rutherford, 49, charged with maintaining a common nuisance, possession of paraphernalia, possession of methamphetamine, possession of syringe
Also arrested were:
•Charles James ‘Chuckie’ Hickman, 34, of Crothersville, visiting a common nuisance.
•Herman Curtis Eldridge, 43, of Crothersville, visiting a common nuisance.
•Sabrina L. Jensen, 40, of Crothersville, visiting a common nuisance.

•Carl James Perkins, 44, of Crothersville, possession of marijuana, growing marijuana, possession of paraphernalia, visiting a common nuisance.
•Rose Victorino, 56, of Crothersville, visiting a common nuisance.
While conducting their investigation at the Walnut Stret location authorities were granted a search warrant around 9:30 p.m. for the 107 East Street residence. Returning to the East Street residence they found marijuana, a marijuana plant, methamphetamine, scales, bags and other methamphetamine paraphernalia.
That led to the arrests of:

Local police reported said Weisman was never located and is believed to be out of state.

Some Signs I’d Like to See

by Curt Kovener

Those of you who call the newspaper and leave a message with our electronic secretary or perhaps you see some of our ads know that we promote ourselves as “The Best Little Paper In Town!” And now, according to the United State Postal Service we are also “The largest weekly newspaper in Jackson County!”
Some years back the local dry cleaning service, we used to advertise “You can drop your pants here.”
Which got me to thinking about some other sign/slogan possibilities for area businesses.
Perhaps Lee Tire & 4×4 should claim their customers come to them “To be retired”.
Maybe Dorsey’s Auto Body Shop should ask: “May we have the next dents?”
How about on S&L Electric’s truck: “Let us remove your shorts.”
At Scott County Tire where they fix and replace mufflers & exhaust pipes: “No appointment necessary. We’ll hear you coming.”
Maybe Jackson County REMC should say: “We would be delighted if you pay your electric bill. However, if you don’t, you will be.”
At noontime on the door of Redneck Computers, the local computer store might be found: “Out for a quick byte.”
On the maternity room door at Schneck Medical Center: “Push, Push, Push.”
Maybe in the front yard of Adams Funeral Home: “Drive carefully, we’ll wait.”
Or how about at Rick Clark’s Auto Repair where you can get a radiator fixed: “Best place in town to take a leak.”
Maybe a sign in the window of Wilson’s Diner in Freetown should read: “Don’t stand there and be hungry, come in and get fed up.”
The Peoples Bank is known for some pretty good rates for auto loans. Perhaps their time & temperature sign could read: “The best way to get back on your feet—miss a car payment.”
Maybe found in the Brownstown Animal Hospital waiting room: “Be back in 5 minutes. Sit! Stay!”
Crothersville School is a non-smoking area. So maybe they ought to have posted: “If we see you smoking we will assume you are on fire and take appropriate action.”
On the side of Rumpke’s garbage trucks they could claim: “We’ve got what it takes to take what you’ve got.”
What we really need is an optometrist in town so the eye Doc’s sign could read: “If you don’t see what you’re looking for, you’ve come to the right place.”
