JASPER (NNDC) – A tip from the public has led to the arrest of a Jasper man on drug-related charges.

Jasper police say 20-year old Colt Eckert was taken into custody at about 11:00PM after police found a small amount of prescription medication in his room at his home on Dewey Street. JPD says Eckert did not have a prescription for the medication.

Police say they were let into the house by the homeowners. Eckert is on work-release but does return home on a daily basis.

While police were in the home, they say they also found numerous drug-related items including syringes and what they describe as “makeshift” smoking pipes.

Eckert has been charged with four counts of Possession of Syringes (a Level 6 felony), and Possession of a Schedule II Substance (a Class A misdemeanor).
