On Wednesday, officers received a complaint from a female in reference to receiving multiple phone calls from a male identified as 26-year-old Matthew Roberts of Salamonia, Ind. The victim told officers she has a protection order in place which states Roberts shall not have any contact with her.

The charge, a first-degree misdemeanor, is currently pending at Lima Municipal Court.
At 8:18 p.m. Thursday, a Delphos Police officer on patrol observed a vehicle being operated on the roadway with an expired registration. Due to this, the officer conducted a traffic stop.

The driver of the vehicle was cited for the registration expiration and Etzler was cited for possession of marijuana. Etzler will appear in Van Wert Municipal Court to face the charge.
