Two Arrested after Suspicious Person Complaint

A man and a woman were arrested in the overnight hours on Monday after Marshall County police responded to a suspicious person complaint.

The officer arrived in the area of Upas Road and 12th Road where he found a man he recognized leaning into a vehicle at a residence west of the intersection. The officer knew that that suspect, Pedro Pinion, did not live at the residence.

Pinion reached inside the vehicle and the officer told Pinion to stop and show him his hands and Pinion reportedly refused to listen to verbal commands. Pinion was then placed on the ground at gunpoint along with a woman in the car, Carla Hogg.

The officer reportedly found several bags of methamphetamine inside the vehicle along with a loaded .38-caliber revolver.

Pedro Pinion and Carla Hogg were arrested and booked into the Marshall County Jail on a preliminary charge of Possession of Methamphetamine.
