LOOMIS-A Loomis man was arrested Dec. 13 in connection with three prior incidents and drugs found during a search warrant.

The search warrant was executed in the residence of Donald Hall, 54, on the day of his arrest, but the first incident for which charges were filed occurred two months earlier.

On Oct. 18, law enforcement responded to a house in the Loomis area where a power line was believed to have been cut. The person who made the call reportedly said that they had seen Hall acting strangely near his brother's house.

Linemen from Northwestern Energy pointed out where the power line was cut and noted that days earlier, the line had been cut and repaired. A post hole digger was found where the line was cut, and Hall's brother later identified it as being his and having been taken from his residence.

On Oct. 23, a sheriff's deputy made contact with Hall in reference to another incident for which no charges were filed, at which time Hall allegedly said that he had cut the power line because it had been "magnetizing his house."

The second event for which Hall was charged took place on Dec. 4. Law enforcement was dispatched to a Loomis residence for a reported domestic assault. The alleged victim said that Hall had come over to his house and that he had been watching Hall, and Hall became upset.

Hall reportedly tripped over a car dolly and fell to the ground, at which time the other man tried to catch him. Hall pinned the man to the ground and allegedly punched him in the side multiple times.

A neighbor who witnessed the event and called 911 said that he had seen Hall take the man to the ground but did not witness him being hit. The witness also said that he watched the alleged victim go inside the house, then watched Hall get into a vehicle, drive it into a garage door valued at $800, then drive away.

Hall then reportedly went to his brother's house on Dec. 11. At the time, a friend of Hall's brother was at the residence and had parked two trucks there. Hall allegedly took the batteries out of both trucks and put them in the back of his own truck.

According to court documents, the friend saw Hall doing this and recorded him with his cell phone, but "decided not to confront him to avoid a conflict, as this has been an ongoing problem."

The Davison County Sheriff's Office searched Hall's residence with a warrant at about 2:35 p.m. on Dec. 13. A broken glass pipe with a white powdery substance on it was reportedly found under a floor grate. The substance was tested and found to be methamphetamine. Hall was arrested and charged for the three other incidents when the warrant was executed.

In total, Hall is charged with possession of a controlled substance in schedules I or II, a Class 5 felony; interrupting communications, a Class 6 felony; first-degree petty theft of more than $400, domestic abuse simple assault to intentionally cause bodily injury and intentional damage to property between $400 and $1,000, all of which are Class 1 misdemeanors; and use or possession of drug paraphernalia, a Class 2 misdemeanor.
