Woman charged with possession of marijuana

GATESVILLE — State parole agents doing a search on a Gatesville Road woman’s home reported finding marijuana and pills.

Tammy Hobson, 59, was charged Jan. 22 with possession of marijuana and false informing, both misdemeanors.

Her home was searched on Jan. 16 by state parole agents, according to a report by Indiana Conservation Officer David Moss, who was called in to assist.

Officers on scene handed Moss a tin containing marijuana and other items and told him that Hobson had claimed the marijuana as hers. Moss placed her under arrest. He wrote in his report that Hobson said several times that the marijuana was not hers.

While searching Hobson, Moss reported finding two pills in her pocket which she said were hydrocodone. She told Moss that the pills were hers and that she had a prescription for them, but when Moss asked to see the prescription, she told him it was for her husband. Another officer was given the prescription bottle with the husband’s name on it, the report said.

Hobson was taken to the Brown County jail. She posted $1,000 bond and was released that afternoon.
