An Indianapolis woman wound up in the Marshall County Jail after a traffic stop late Tuesday night. A Marshall County Police officer pulled Christina Wengerter, 31, over on U.S. 31 and 3A road just after 11:30 p.m. for several moving violations. County Police K-9 Arras was walked around the vehicle during the stop and indicated the presence of narcotics. A search turned up about 200 grams of what is believed to be marijuana, according to the police report. The substance was also reportedly packaged in a way used to deal marijuana. Wengerter is charged with possession of marijuana greater than 30 grams and dealing marijuana.

WKVI News Director Mary Perren is glad to be back home in northern Indiana and on the radio. She’s a North Judson native with more than 20 years of news experience. She’s worked in print and radio news in Indianapolis, Hopkinsville, Ky., Nashville, Tenn. and most recently in Winamac before taking over as news director for Kankakee Valley Broadcasting in February of 2013. Her work has been honored by the Associated Press, StateNets News Association, Curb Foundation, Hoosier State Press Association and IBA. When she’s not sitting in the anchor chair or chasing down news, Mary enjoys shopping for antiques, attending concerts and taking long walks and rides in her vintage Saab convertible, weather permitting. She’s also a hopelessly devoted Chicago Cubs fanatic who still cringes at the mention of Steve Garvey and Josh Beckett and maintains it wasn’t Steve Bartman’s fault.
