Thursday afternoon, officers responded to information of a large amount of marijuana contained in baggies, at a residence on East 1st Street.
The tip further indicated the marijuana was accompanied by various pipes and smoking material.
Upon arrival, officers made contact with 19-year old Thomas James Kasper.
According to officer notes, officers explained the reason for their visit and Kasper reportedly denied the allegations. Officers requested to enter Kasper’s residence and have a look around, of which Kasper reportedly consented.
Once inside, officers discovered a plastic bag which contained two, unused circular screens.
According to additional notes from officers, Kasper indicated the second floor contained two rooms used for storage and when asked, granted officers permission to access.
While en route to the second floor, officers reportedly detected the odor of marijuana, at which point Kasper admitted to marijuana being in one of the rooms.
Officers soon discovered various devices commonly used to smoke marijuana including numerous “bongs” and pipes as well as marijuana totaling 83 grams.
Evidence of hash-oil production was also discovered, of which Kasper also admitted to.
Two glass cylinders containing additional marijuana and believed to be involved in the production of hash-oil were discovered as well.
As a result, Kasper was taken into custody on a Felony charge of Possession of THC with Intent to Distribute and misdemeanor Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
Kasper was later transported to the Lincoln County Jail, booked and released.
