The City of Corrigan Police Department has been very active during the months of February and for first part of March. Under the direction of Police Chief Darrell Gibson, Corrigan PD is focusing intensely on the illegal use and distribution of illegal narcotics within the City of Corrigan.
Detective Christopher Lima reports several narcotics-related arrests have been made between the past two months and several more arrests are expected.
According to Detective Lima, several tips and complaints have been received by the department regarding the local use and distribution of narcotics within the city. Lima states "though some of the complaints stem from the county, Corrigan Police Department is working diligently to curb the use and sale within the city limits". "We are also working closely with the Sheriff's Office on tips received and in locating individuals wanted on outstanding drug charges who take safe haven within the city by locating and arresting these individuals".
On March 16, 2016 acting on information received about an individual with an outstanding felony warrant out of Polk County Sheriff's Office, Detective Lima and Officer McCracken traveled to a residence located off of Hulett Lane in the city to execute the warrant.
Lima states upon arrival to the residence and while attempting to gain entry into the residence an individual was observed looking out of an adjacent window and running could be heard through the residence. Lima and Mcracken forced entry into the residence and made contact with a black male running toward the back door of the residence, and throwing something toward the nearby wood-line.
The black male was identified as James Williams Jr, aka "Goat", 29, of Corrigan. Additionally, Krystal Chisholm, 29, of Corrigan, was located inside the residence and arrested on an outstanding felony warrant out of Polk County for endangering a child.
A subsequent search of the residence was conducted and narcotics, including, methamphetamine, "K2" (Synthetic marijuana), and marijuana was located inside the residence resulting in the following charges filed;
James Williams Jr., 29, arrested and charged with possession controlled substance (2 counts), tampering with evidence, both felony offenses and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
Krystal Chisholm, 29, arrested for an outstanding felony warrant, charged additionally with possession of controlled substance (2 counts), both felony offenses, and possession of marijuana.
Chief Gibson warns anyone who is using the City of Corrigan as a safe haven to conduct narcotic business: you will be identified and eventually arrested.
Chief Gibson also warns, there are several ongoing investigations at this time and several more arrests are expected.
