Two charged for drug-related offenses in separate incidents


A male and a female were arrested on drug-related charges during the past 24-hours in separate cases.

Deputy Ron Thomas was dispatched to Pleasant Plains in reference to a strange acting female at the Exxon service station. 

The suspect had left the area heading north on highway 167 in a black Kia.

Deputy Thomas was informed that a subject meeting the description was at the Dollar General, outside of her vehicle.

Thomas said he found Emily Page Barnhouse, 24, dancing around and saying she loved everyone one minute and hated everyone the next. 

After she threw her car keys onto the highway and made a move to go get them, Thomas took her into custody.

Officer Thomas said due to her bizarre behavior and incoherent statements it was determined that she was under the influence of a controlled substance and posed a danger to herself and others. 

Barnhouse was transported to jail and cited for public intoxication.

The second incident involved a traffic stop Tuesday at the intersection of Newport Road and Blackland Road. 

The vehicle had crossed the centerline of the roadway multiple times according to narcotics investigators Johnny Byler and Dillon Sallas. 

Officer Byler said the suspect was identified as Anthony Imhoof, 29, of Bradford.

Byler said Imhoof was observed making erratic movements with his hands, was extremely nervous and had bloodshot, watery eyes. 

Imhoof was found to be on felony probation with a search waiver.

The officers searched Imhoof’s vehicle and found a set of digital scales and a glass smoking device.

Imhoof was taken to jail where an intake search found a baggie of what tested positive as methamphetamine.

Imhoof is facing possible charges including possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, furnishing prohibited articles into jail, and a traffic violation.
