Jefferson Police BadgeThe Jefferson Police Department has applied for an arrest warrant for a Fort Dodge man.

Police Chief Mark Clouse says 38-year-old Priest Delray Wilson is charged with a Class D Felony for his third or subsequent offense for possession of marijuana. The charge stems from a traffic stop on April 23rd. An officer stopped Wilson’s vehicle just north of Highway 30 on Highway 4 for a taillight that was out. Clouse notes that while talking with Wilson, the officer could smell the marijuana odor coming from the vehicle, which gave the officer probable cause to search the vehicle. The officer found the alleged substance in a coat pocket in the back seat. Wilson admitted that the coat and substance belonged to him.

The substance was taken to the Criminalistics Laboratory in Ankeny. Test results came back positive for marijuana. Clouse says Wilson has had two out-of-state prior convictions of possession of marijuana.

Clouse adds that once they receive their warrants and Wilson is apprehended, he will be booked into the Greene County Jail. Raccoon Valley Radio will bring you more information as it becomes official.
