Centralia Man Charged After Bar Incident Sunday Morning

MARION COUNTY — A 22-year-old Centralia man was charged Monday in Marion County court with misdemeanor disorderly conduct after he allegedly was waving a handgun inside a Centralia bar Sunday morning.

Centralia police arrested Anthony Hernandez Sunday for disorderly conduct, unlawful possession of a firearm, and possession of drug paraphernalia after they responded to a report from Skipper’s Inn on South Locust in Centralia of a man waving what turned out to be a pellet gun inside the bar.

However, officers did reportedly find a 12-gauge shotgun on the floor of a vehicle that belongs to Hernandez and was waiting across the street from the bar.

A 34-year-old Salem woman, Valerie Wade, was reportedly driving the vehicle and was reportedly found carrying a controlled substance.

She was arrested for alleged possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving on a suspended license, and on an outstanding Marion County warrant stemming from a DUI.

Both Hernandez and Wade were taken to the Marion County Jail. She was formally charged Monday with Class 4 felony possession of a controlled substance.
