Sheriffs’ blotter

Carson City

The following people were booked into the Carson City Jail over the weekend. All are innocent until proved guilty in court.

• Michael A. Conley, 29, of Rio Linda, Calif., was arrested Friday afternoon on felony charges of possession of marijuana with the intent to sell and possession of an ounce or more of marijuana and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

At about 4:20 p.m. a deputy witnessed a black Jeep run a red light, according to the arrest report. After the deputy wrote the ticket, he smelled a faint odor of marijuana and asked if there was any in the car. The driver admitted to having some hash in his pocket and agreed to have a drug-sniffing dog search the vehicle. The dog found about 6.6 ounces of marijuana in the car. The driver provided his California medical marijuana card and said he had driven to Carson City in a hurry but he thought his card would make it OK for him to have marijuana. His bail was $18,500.

• William W. Hornbeck, 41, and Eduardo Juanez Leon, 42, both of Carson City, were arrested on felony charges Friday night. Hornbeck was arrested on three felony failure-to-appear warrants out of Reno. Leon was charged with harboring a fugitive.

At about 9:20 p.m., members of the sheriff’s Special Enforcement Team made contact with Hornbeck at Leon’s home due to the warrants. Leon told the officers that he let Hornbeck stay there despite knowing about the warrants, according to the arrest report. Hornbeck was given no bail. Leon’s bail was set at $10,000.
