Four People Arrested for Possession of Methamphetamine

July 28, 2017

Four people were in the Marion County Jail Thursday for possession of methamphetamine.

Two were arrested following a traffic stop by Marion County Sheriff’s Deputies on the north side of Salem. 31-year-old Steven West and 22-year-old Meaghan Sarghet of South Washington Street in Salem were arrested after the Marion County canine alerted on the vehicle and methamphetamine was allegedly found in the car. Deputies say a diabetic bag with two pipes, a baggie with a white residue that tested positive for methamphetamine and a straw pipe were found near the driver’s seat. A pink backpack was also found in the rear of the car that contained electronic scales with white powder residue and a large bong.

21-year-old Quienton Jolliff of South Locust in Centralia was arrested on an outstanding Marion County warrant for failure to appear in a 2015 felony case for meth manufacturing. He was initially stopped by Centralia police when they saw him outside the door of the Centralia Museum after it had closed. After determining Jolliff was wanted on a warrant, an effort was made to handcuff him. Police say he resisted. After being pepper sprayed and taken to the ground, Jolliff was eventually cuffed. Centralia Police say they found cannabis and a baggie of ICE meth in his shirt pockets.

34-year-old Samuel Powe of Forest Street in Mt. Vernon was arrested for possession of meth and driving on a revoked license following a Wednesday night traffic stop by Centralia Police.
