Donovan M. Bowling, 25, Austin, is now incarcerated at the Scott County Security Center awaiting his jury trial on a Level 2 felony count of dealing in methamphetamine.

Bowling was found at an apartment on West Owen Street in Scottsburg on April 4 by Deputy J.R. Ward. Deputy Ward had received a tip about possible criminal activity at the residence.

While the officer was executing a consent to search, he said Bowling “…went from the porch outside to the bathroom inside carrying a red bag that was later found to have 41.00 grams of methamphetamine inside it…” according to the probable cause affidavit.

The meth was packaged for individual sale, the deputy said. Also confiscated was a pair of digital scales and some drug paraphernalia.

A preliminary plea of not guilty was entered for Bowling during his initial court hearing. The case was assigned to a public defender.

Bail was set at $100,000 by corporate surety bond or by $10,000 cash.

A Scottsburg area resident charged with two counts of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated (OWI) has learned his case has been enhanced to Level 5 felonies.

Donald F. Wilson, 52, Banes Hollow Road, was arrested by Trooper Kyle Taylor of the Indiana State Police (ISP) on February 28. He was the apparent driver of a pickup truck which lost its load, a camper, on West State Road 256. The camper struck a utility pole, causing property damage.

Wilson was interviewed by Deputy Joe Johnson of the Sheriff’s Department after the mishap occurred.

Put through a series of tests to determine sobriety, Wilson, whose speech was allegedly slurred, also submitted to a blood alcohol test. The results apparently indicated that he was intoxicated.

He was transported to the Scott County Security Center in Scottsburg. The Class A misdemeanor OWI charges were filed by the Prosecutor’s Office on March 6. So was a Notice of Prior Offense, which stated that Wilson had been convicted in April, 1998, of two counts of OWI causing death. Consequently, the case is now a Level 5 felony.

Wilson has a jury trial date of June 5. He will be represented by a public defender.
