Odin Man Arrested for Packages of Synthetic DrugsA 28-year-old Odin man has been arrested and taken to the Marion County Jail for violation of the Illinois Food and Cosmetic Control Act for allegedly having possession of 15 bags of synthetic drugs with the possible intention of selling the packages.
Marion County Sheriff's Deputies siezed the packages along with $320 in cash from Justin Shipmann of Lowery Street in Odin after he had given them permission to search. Deputies had initially gone to the apartment complex after receiving a complaint about a domestic disturbance. After hearing yelling from the Shipman apartment, they went to his unit where they allegedly saw a drug pipe laying on the floor that led to the permission to search. Most of the drug packages and money were allegedly found in Shipman's jacket.
The other person at the apartment, 24-year-old Brittany Elliston, was arrested on an outstanding Clinton County failure to appear in court warrant for criminal damage to property. Elliston was later released from the Marion County Jail after posting $500 bond.
