drugsSome of the drugs — heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, Ecstasy, cannabis and THC oil — and $25,000 in cash Centralia police seized when they arrested Carlos L. Scott last week on suspicion of possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, and controlled substance trafficking. The drugs were contained inside the gutted televisions.     The Clinton County Sheriff's Department assisted other police personnel in the largest drug seizure in the history of the Centralia Police Department, as well as the Marion and Clinton County area.
    Police arrested Carlos L. Scott, 31, for possession with the intent to deliver and controlled substance trafficking.
    During the week of June 29 through July 3, the Centralia Police Department conducted a drug interdiction investigation executing five search warrants resulting in — what is to their knowledge — the largest drug seizure in the history of the department.
    According to Centralia Police Chief Greg Dodson, investigators acting on drug intelligence information determined that three separate shipments of a suspicious nature were scheduled to arrive in Centralia over the course of three separate days. 
    On June 29, officers intercepted the first package and a police K-9 unit from the Clinton County Sheriff's Department assisted and gave a positive alert for the presence of drugs.
    A search warrant for the package was obtained and a search of the package revealed what appeared to be a factory packaged television set. 
    Upon closer inspection it was found that all the internal parts of the television had been removed and a large quantity of drugs were hidden inside of the reassembled television. 

langenhorstChakota Therapeutic Riding Center’s Kay Langenhorst and friend. The Germantown facility has reopened its doors after a lengthy postponement due to the COVID-19 pandemic.    Chakota Therapeutic Riding Center in Germantown is finally opening their doors this week for lessons after postponing due to the COVID-19 crisis.
    The center (Chakota-TRC) is a community-based human service organization which provides therapeutic horseback riding for children and adults with disabilities.
    "Who would have thought that 2020 would have become such a year for so many changes," said public relations director Kay Langenhorst. "It saddens me so very much with what the entire world is going through, but I’m excited for the season to finally start."
    Langenhorst said that when you come out though, things will be looking very different. 
    "We are putting in a lot of extra effort to make sure Chakota is extra safe for our riders, volunteers and horses," she said. 
    Even with these measures being put into place, they only have 10 riders returning out of the 25 riders they have had in previous years.
    "We left the decision up to the families and asked them to provide their own sidewalkers this year. By doing this, it gives them more control of who is near their rider," she said. "I’m sure going to miss all of those who can’t make it this year though."
    On to a happier note — the tentative start date was this Monday, July 6, however, due to the heat index, they have had to cancel lessons for the next few days.
    "The arena area will be very limited to those who are allowed down there, so the need for volunteers is less this year," Langenhorst said.
