Perry County: A Cannelton man was back behind bars after Troopers found narcotics in his possession while trying to serve him with an arrest warrant.
Members of the State Police “All Crimes Policing” unit, Sergeant George Wooten and Master Trooper Trey Lytton, attempted to serve 36-year-old Charles Cronin, Jr. with multiple arrest warrants at 15370 Dexter Magnet Road.
Troopers, along with Perry County Deputy Daymion Marsh and members of Community Corrections, found Cronin inside the residence, and watched him attempt to hide an item between the cushions of the sofa he was sitting on. As Trooper Lytton placed Cronin into custody, Deputy Marsh found a glass smoking pipe and white baggies, both with white residue. The white, crystal-like substance field tested positive as methamphetamine.
Cronin was transported to the Perry County Corrections Center where he was held on his prior warrant, as well as possession of methamphetamine and paraphernalia charges.
