State Troopers Stop Three in Separate Incidents, Lodged Two

The Oregon State Police lodged three individuals in jail in three separate incidents beginning at 7:58 a.m. Wednesday morning.

A trooper stopped a blue Nissan Sentra for speeding on Interstate-5 near milepost 62 and found the driver, 39-year-old Christopher William Turley, was driving suspended. He was also cited for speed, driving uninsured, failure to register the vehicle and warned for expired tags. He was lodged in jail and the Nissan was towed.

At 7:30 Wednesday night a trooper was dispatched to milepost 77 on Interstate-5 to the report of a disorderly man. The Trooper contacted 32-year-old Timothy Jordan Brenden of Glendale, who showed obvious signs of intoxication. Brenden initially refused to identity himself, so he was arrested and transported to the Josephine County Jail. He was then identified and found to have a warrant for his arrest for disorderly conduct and failure to appear on a bench warrant.

At 12:36 this morning a Trooper initiated a traffic stop on a Silver Chevrolet Metro at milepost one on highway 238 for a traffic violation and found the driver had an active warrant for her arrest. Mary Ann Morgan, 52 was wanted on a failure to appear bench warrant. She was issued a criminal citation and released.
