A 26-year-old Belle Rive man has been taken to the Marion County Jail by Centralia Police for alleged possession of a controlled substance.  Thomas Hughey of Main Street was arrested after police were called to a report of what appeared to be two people smoking a foil in a vehicle outside a home on Johnson Street.  Hughey denied smoking any drugs and agreed to let police search him.  They allegedly found a baggie containing white powder that field tested positive for methamphetamine. Police also searched a woman with Hughey, but no drugs were found and she was not arrested.  

Salem Police arrested 43-year-old Autumn Branon of Lynwood Drive in Salem for alleged obstruction of a peace officer.  Police say Branon refused to tell them the identify of a man who ran from her vehicle during a traffic stop.  Branon later posted $150 bond and was released from the Marion County Jail.

Salem Police arrested 32-year-old Damien Castellari of Basom Road in Salem for disorderly conduct.
