During the weekend, Fulton Police arrested a Fulton man on drug and weapon charges. His accomplice, a Portland woman, faces drug charges.
At 11:23 p.m. Saturday a Fulton police officer stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation.
The driver was identified as Jennifer R. Brewer, 20, Portland.
Brewer’s driver’s license was suspended and officers observed a substance that tested positive for methamphetamine inside the vehicle.
During a subsequent search of the vehicle, officers found a loaded 9mm pistol, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.
A passenger in the vehicle, Levi T. Salmons, 24, Fulton, was arrested for possession of a weapon, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a controlled substance, and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
Brewer was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, displaying a license plate of another person, and driving while her driver’s license was revoked.
Both were taken to Callaway County Jail. Salmons is held on $24,500 bond and Brewer was released on a $15,889 bond.
On Oct. 19, 2011, Brewer pleaded guilty in Callaway County Circuit Court to separate charges of speeding and operating a vehicle without a valid license.
At the time of his arrest, Salmons, was scheduled to go on trial July 3 in Callaway County Circuit Court on earlier charges of possession of marijuana, property damage and trespassing in connection with arrests on Oct. 14, 2011. Salmons was arrested on State Road NN just south of Fulton by a Callaway County deputy investigating a series of thefts in the area.
On June 20, 2011, Salmons, a former New Bloomfield resident, pleaded guilty in Callaway County Circuit Court to third degree assault, a misdemeanor theft charge and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia. He was sentenced to 150 days in Callaway County Jail on each charge. All three incidents were in connection with Jan. 21, 2011, arrests by Fulton Police.
