Peru, IN – A local man is facing multiple drug charges following a traffic stop conducted in the early morning hours of Saturday, October 6, 2018, in Peru.
According to a PPD probable cause affidavit filed with the Miami County Prosecutor’s Office by PPD Sergeant Jeremy Brindle, the traffic stop took place at approximately 1:15 a.m. on Saturday, October 6, 2018, just south of the intersection of 5th and Wayne Streets. The stop was a result of an expired license plate that was hanging vertically and not properly secured to the vehicle.
Upon making contacting the driver, Sergeant Brindle noted that the man, later identified as Robert R. Scott, 44 of Peru was clinching an object in his right hand. He continued to hold the item in his hand as he retrieved his license and registration information.
As Sergeant Brindle continued to talk with the man, he noted that his right hand was reaching down towards the center console. Before the man was able to reach the console, Brindle asked him to step out of the vehicle. Upon exiting the vehicle, Brindle noted the item that the man was holding in his right hand was a multi-colored glass smoking device. He then advised the man not to throw the pipe and to walk back to the front of his police vehicle.
Miami County, IN – The Miami County Election Board will hold an emergency meeting today at the Miami County Courthouse to discuss the possible disqualification of a candidate who is currently on the fall ballot.
According to the Miami County Clerk of Courts and Election Board Member Tawna-Leffel-Sands, the meeting will take place at 3:00 p.m. today in the Assembly Room at the Courthouse. The meeting is open to the public.
The meeting was scheduled when the election board received a complaint that the candidate in question was not eligible to be on the ballot due to a disqualifying circumstance. Leffel-Sands would not comment further on the name of the candidate involved on the reason for the possible disqualification.
While the board is holding a meeting to discuss the situation, they are not empowered to remove a candidate from the actual ballot after a July deadline. That would have to be done by the candidate withdrawing his/her candidacy or by a lawsuit that could be filed and then a judge could order the removal of the candidate from the ballot.

The family of Robert McKinley, his grandmother Pauline Feller, as well as his cousin Matt Feller, will receive a special flag from the Indiana Chapter of Honor and Remember at a service at the VFW on October 27, 2018, at 2:00 p.m. The ceremony is open to the public and all are welcome to attend.
Robert McKinley was serving his country in Iraq in 2003 when he suffered from heat stroke in July of that year. He was evacuated to Germany but later died from his injuries according to his cousin Matt.
“Robert was raised by his Grandmother, Pauline, and his Grandfather, who has now passed away. They were very proud that he was serving his country,” according to Feller.
Honor and Remember was founded by George Lutz after his son, George Anthony Lutz II (Tony) was killed by a sniper’s bullet while he was on patrol in Fallujah, Iraq on December 29, 2005.
In the months that followed Tony’s funeral, his father, George, visited other families who had lost loved ones in the Iraq war. He began to sense that he had joined the ranks of a unique fellowship. These families were only the latest additions to a group that originated with the American Revolution when the first soldiers to shed their blood for our freedom gave their lives.
