Martin police make drug, assault arrests
A domestic incident in April has left a Martin man behind bars. According to an incident report, the Martin Police Department arrested 30-year-old Mark Griffie of Volunteer Drive on Sunday.
During the early morning hours of April 16, officers responded to an assault in progress at 109 Manley St. According to the report, Griffie and Robert Ellison were inside the house fighting and had apparently left blood in the kitchen, living room, hallway and bedroom of the home.
Officers found both of the men lying on the bedroom floor with multiple lacerations.
Ellison had a large gash on his temple, a chest puncture and two slashes on his left arm, according to the report.
Griffie apparently had a large laceration on his jaw and at the base of his skull. During the alleged fight, the resident of the home sustained damage to a window and kitchen table.
Investigators uncovered three knives with 4-5 inch long blades and blood residue at the scene.
Both men were taken that evening to a local hospital. Griffie was released from the hospital on Sunday and taken into custody by the MPD.
He was charged with aggravated assault and aggravated burglary.
According to the report, Ellison was still hospitalized for his injuries as of Monday. He faces a charge of aggravated assault.
An anonymous phone call to the MPD has left a Martin woman jailed on drug charges. According to an incident report, the department received a phone call Friday afternoon alleging a woman at 109 Walters Ave. was involved in prescription hydrocodone drug use.
When officers arrived, the owner of the vehicle in front of the property, Rebecca Hamilton, gave consent for officers to search her vehicle, according to the report.
The search allegedly uncovered a prescription bottle that did not belong to Hamilton which contained 118 hydrocodone pills. Officers also found a tablet of Viagra, four grams of what was believed to be marijuana, scissors and a pipe, all reportedly belonging to Hamilton, according to the report.
Hamilton was charged with possession of Schedule II, simple possession and unlawful drug paraphernalia.
A Wednesday incident reportedly involving a woman running around an apartment complex naked in Martin has lead to the arrest of a man for several grams of marijuana possession.
According to an incident report, officers responded to Woodway Loop Wednesday evening for a welfare check of a woman who was apparently naked and confused about where she was.
The resident of the apartment, Jeffery McDaniel, reportedly refused to let officers into the apartment. According to the report, the apartment complex manager unlocked the apartment.
Officers reported detecting an odor of marijuana and allegedly found approximately 7 grams of marijuana and a pipe in plain view, according to the report.
After a thorough search of the apartment, officers allegedly uncovered a total of 456 grams of marijuana and a glass, smoking pipe inside the apartment.
The naked female, Jennifer Deyeso, was checked out by EMS personnel and apparently admitted to consuming mushrooms earlier that day. McDaniel was taken into custody and charged with possession of Schedule VI with intent and unlawful drug paraphernalia.
