The Mitchell Police Division arrested three local residents Monday, each for possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Tangi Lynn Taylor, 19, Kenneth James Voss, 26, and Calvin Bias Bagola, 25, were arrested at Taylor’s Mitchell residence.
Mitchell Police Officer Nick Jongeling was on a routine property exchange escort with Bagola when he saw a light bulb used to smoke meth inside apartment No. 4 at 505 S. Main St. Bagola was there to retrieve property from Taylor’s residence, said Lt. Detective Don Everson.
“He secured the residence to make sure no one could leave and detained the people until another officer got there,” Everson said.
Officers brought Taylor, Voss and Bagola to the Mitchell Police Division and executed a search warrant of the apartment, during which they found one-quarter gram of methamphetamine.
Everson said one-quarter gram of meth is a “pretty good amount for around here.” Usually, the most meth that officers seize is residue on drug paraphernalia.
The felony possession charge carries a maximum punishment of 10 years in prison, a $20,000 fine or both.
The misdemeanor paraphernalia charge carries a maximum punishment of 30 days in jail, a $500 fine or both.
