When detective Dave Chavka and Deputy Sonya Morgan went to a Stock Island residence Wednesday afternoon to make an arrest on a warrant, they also walked away with a bust for illegal drugs.
Detective Chavka and Deputy Morgan went to the trailer on 10th Avenue to arrest 26 year old Robert Anglin on outstanding warrants for violation of probation and for failure to appear in court. When they arrived, Detective Chavka went to the front door while Deputy Morgan watched the side and back of the trailer.
The detective knocked on the front door and a man answered. When asked where Anglin was, the man said he’d get him then closed the door. Detective Chavka then heard the door being locked.
Suddenly, Deputy Morgan heard movement near the back of the trailer and saw things being thrown out a back window. Investigation revealed someone had thrown out 14 individual bags of marijuana inside a shoe box.
Detective Chavka yelled for Anglin and the other man to come outside and they finally did. Inside the trailer, the detective found $3,002 in cash, believed to be the proceeds from drug sales, along with a digital scale like those used to weigh illegal drugs.
Anglin told the detective the marijuana was his. He was taken into custody on the outstanding warrants, and on charges of marijuana and drug paraphernalia possession. He was booked into jail.
