Whitley County Sheriff Dept.

Report of suspicious activity results in arrests

Around 9:30 p.m. April 15, 2016, sheriff deputies were dispatched to a residence along US Hwy 25. According to a caller, a female appeared to be searching a ditch along the highway while under the influence.

Deputies Jonas Saunders and Andrew Lawson arrived at the location and made contact with 30-year-old Jennifer R. Teague. Teague identified herself to Dep. Lawson with a false name.

An identification card resembling Teague’s appearance was located. She resisted arrest and later admitted her actual name. Dep. Lawson charged Teague with third-degree possession of a controlled substance, giving an officer a false name and resisting arrest.

Also arrested at that location was 41-year-old Stephen Schwartz.  Dep. Saunders charged Schwartz with alcohol intoxication. Both were lodged in the Whitley County Detention Center.
