A man and woman have been arrested by Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Deputies after apparently jumping off an Amtrak train with a large amount of drugs.
On Tuesday, Oct. 2, deputies from the Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call regarding a male and female walking on the railroad tracks east of Poplar, reports
Sheriff Freedom Crawford. The dispatch report also stated the female was bleeding and that they had possibly jumped from the Amtrak train.
Deputies and Crawford arrived and, with the assistance of Fort Peck Tribes Department of Law and Justice officers, eventually located the individuals, who were later identified as Amberly Dobbins of Stevenson, Calif., and Morris Hayden of Rice Lake, Wis.
Dobbins and Hayden were placed under arrest for obstructing a peace officer.
Dobbins was in need of medical attention and an ambulance was dispatched and she was taken to an area hospital’s emergency room.
Hayden was transported to the Roosevelt County Detention Facility.
The next day, their baggage was inventoried by jail staff and several sealed bags containing a large amount of suspected marijuana were discovered. The inventory yielded approximately seven pounds of suspected marijuana and $1,145 in cash.
Dobbins and Hayden were charged with possession of dangerous drugs with intent to sell and transporting a dangerous drug on the train.
Federal charges are also pending. They are currently being detained in the Roosevelt County Jail on $100,000 bonds.
