|A Creston man is facing eleven charges related to illegal hunting and allegedly shooting at deer and the possession of a conrolled substance, according to three criminal complaints filed against Justin Ross Whited, 32, who was incarcerated in Central Regional Jail.|
In two criminal complaints filed by NRP officer Charles Stephens, Whited is charged with hunting while revoked second offense, hunting closed season, hunting closed season, hunting from a motor vehicle, loaded gun in a motor vehicle, shooting from a roadway, hunting without written permission, fleeing on foot, conspiracy to violate Chapter 20, and obstruction.
In a third criminal complaint, Trooper David C. Moore filed charges against Whited for possession of controlled substance, two generic Xanax pills found in is pocket.
NRP Stephens stopped a vehicle on Stutler Road with Whited and two other individuals, one giving a statement to the officer that Whited shot at a deer. The complaint says a shot deer was not found.
Whited's privilege to hunt had been suspended because of unpaid fines related to an incident in 2012.
