Police report: Drugs arrests and assaults highlight weekend

Dickinson residents and visitors were caught in several acts and varying degrees of debauchery by the Dickinson Police Department over the holiday weekend.

-- Dustin Paul Keller was cited for shoplifting at Walmart on Friday evening, Capt. Dave Wilkie said. The 18-year-old Belfield man was allegedly caught removing less than $50 worth of merchandise — DVDs and a phone speaker — from the discount retailer.

-- Christopher Davidson was allegedly caught urinating in public near Ouellette Chiropractic early Saturday morning, Wilkie said. The 33-year-old Dickinson man was cited and released.

-- Christopher Ketron was cited for disorderly conduct/alarming acts after allegedly attempting to retrieve his coat from a home that he did not have an invitation to early Saturday morning. The 23-year-old Dickinson man allegedly told police he was at a house party and was attempting to get his coat. Officers gave him a ride to his residence.

-- After a routine traffic stop early Saturday morning Dickinson Police arrested 18-year-old Tanis Peterson of New England with possession and intent to deliver methamphetamines, Wilkie said. Officers found the illegal substance in the car prepackaged for sale.

-- Nicholas Kearley, a 21-year-old man with a Dickinson address, was arrested Saturday evening for three marijuana-related offenses, Wilkie said. Possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and ingestion.

-- A fight between roommates landed one in the hospital and the other in jail on Sunday evening, Wilkie said. Uudamtal Bayar, 26, Dickinson, was arrested for domestic violence/aggravated assault after a fight with his roommate caused the roommate to fall and slip on ice, resulting in a cut on the roommate’s head. The roommate faded out of consciousness twice, which resulted in the aggravated assault charge.

“Because of the fight, they arrested the other guy because he was the aggressor,” Wilkie said. “Had they not been fighting, there’s probably a very good chance the roommate would not have fallen and scrambled his eggs.”

-- Police responded to a possible carjacking on Friday afternoon at Loaf and Jug, Wilkie said. A man returned to his car at the filling station to find another man in the vehicle. The two men fought and the alleged thief ran off, leaving the first man beaten and bruised. Nothing was missing from the car, so officers suspect the second man was trying to steal the car itself. The incident is still under investigation.

-- A 22-year-old Dickinson man was charged with possession of heroin, meth and drug paraphernalia after he was caught going through lockers at the West River Community Center on Monday evening, Wilkie said. Forrest Reyna and an unidentified minor were allegedly raiding lockers when they were caught and authorities were called.
