Salem Man Pleads Guilty to Meth Possession Charge

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

A 40-year-old rural Salem man has pleaded guilty in Marion County Court to a charge of possession of less than five grams of methamphetamine.  Jason Hodge of Nation Road was placed on two years probation and ordered to complete 30 hours of public service work.  

Marion County Sheriff's Deputies had gone to Hodge's home to question him about information they received about his possible involvement in meth manufacturing.  When they smell an oder of meth coming from the home, they received a search warrant to search the home.  Deputies also found items involved in meth manufacturing and the remnants of past manufacturing activity.  

Two others at the home were also arrested.  

Meanwhile, 21-year-old Chicago woman pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of 2.5 to 10 grams of cannabis.  Julian Rodriquez was sentenced to one year court supervision, fined $100 and cost, and ordered to undergo drug and alcohol evaluation and treatment.
