SEX OFFENDER ARRESTED ON MULTIPLE CHARGES

On 15 Jan 09, while attempting to locate a runaway juvenile, Deputy Sheriff S. Travaglio obtained information indicating in excess of twenty marijuana plants were being grown in the apartment of Clifton D. Collins, age 28, at 223 Greene Street Apt. 1, Marietta. Further investigation revealed Collins is a registered sex offender whose registered address was in Macksburg. Obtaining a warrant for the apartment on 16 Jan, Deputy Travaglio and Detectives Reynolds, Rhodes and Schuck searched Collins’ apartment and seized two small marijuana plants, marijuana seeds and various drug paraphernalia. Collins was not present during the search but was interviewed on 17 Jan. During the interview, Collins admitted to having marijuana and a marijuana pipe in his pockets and stated he had been living at the residence since November 2008. Additional interviews disclosed that at one time Collins was growing thirty marijuana plants, which he told his girlfriend were tomato plants, but that the family cat destroyed nearly all of them. Determining the marijuana and related items were the property of Collins, Deputy Travaglio arrested Collins for misdemeanor charges of cultivation of marijuana, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Collins is also charged with a fifth degree felony count of failure to register a change of address as a registered sex offender. He remains incarcerated in lieu of $4,400 bond.
