Pot suspect arrested as DCS checks home

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

An occupant of a Railroad Avenue home was arrested for possession of marijuana as Shelbyville police and a Department of Children's Services investigator checked a report of possible drug activity Friday afternoon.

Walter Michael Williamson, 31, told officer Tory Moore he used the marijuana "recreationally and for pain."

The disheveled home reeked of marijuana, Moore said, and one "lethargic" man who was not charged was smoking a marijuana cigarette. A third man, a woman and two children were in the home as well, Moore's report said.

Marijuana, digital scales, rolling papers, a pile of tobacco, and empty "Philly Blunt" packages were confiscated, Moore said.

Williamson was charged with possession of a schedule VI drug and possession of drug paraphernalia. He posted $7,000 bond.

Officers had been told a meth lab was possibly inside the home. No meth was found, police said.

Tale of the trail

A man who told police he "didn't know why" he drove away after an injury accident Friday morning was charged later in the day.

Kyle Steven Guess, 30, of Madison Street struck another vehicle at the intersection of North Jefferson and East Franklin streets, then drove away, police said.

Sgt. James Wilkerson followed a fluid trail left by the heavily-damaged Guess car from the scene to a Moody Street home. Parts found at the scene matched those missing from the car, according to police.

Guess was arrested at his workplace and charged with leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, driving on a suspended license (third offense), and no vehicle insurance. He posted $4,500 bond.

Popcorn, Pampers

A shoplifting suspect went further than the usual pattern of just walking away with stolen items Saturday.

Shauna Denae Bales, 23, of Burt Street, allegedly ate popcorn chicken in Walmart without paying, then grabbed Pampers from a shelf and put them on her baby in a bathroom before leaving, again without paying, police said.

Bales posted $1,000 bond.


A wheelbarrow was stolen from a garage at a North Main Street home overnight Saturday, police said.

The owner said a window was broken to gain entry and blood was splattered nearby.
