Centralia Man Arrested on Multiple Drug Charges After Found Hiding In His Home

May 30, 2017

A 32-year-old Centralia man has been arrested on multiple drug charges after allegedly found hiding behind a chair in the living room of his home on Sunday.

Marion County Sheriff’s Deputies had gone to the front and back door of the home of Robert Williams on Perrine Street in Centralia to try and locate him following the execution of a search warrant on his home May 20th where a number of drug items were found. No one came to the door, but a person was spotted looking outside. Deputies say she eventually answered the door and admitted Williams was inside.

When Williams couldn’t be immediately found, Centralia Police were called for backup and Williams was found hiding behind the chair. He initially refused to put his hands up, until one of the deputies drew his taser.

Deputies say they found a small baggie containing methamphetamine near where Williams was taken into custody. He was also wanted on other drug charges after a large number of drugs were allegedly recovered from his home when a search warrant was executed on May 20th when he was not present.

Centralia Police say at that time a large bag of drugs were found in a drawer in the bedroom. They included 14 grams of cocaine, 51 oxycodone pills, 5 Alprazolam pills and a baggie containing 3.1 grams of synthetic cannabis.

Williams is being held in the Marion County Jail for possession of a controlled substance, manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance, possession of under five grams of methamphetamine and an outstanding warrant for possession of a controlled substance. Bond on the warrant is set at $50,000.
