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.
