Sandoval man found digging hole in Library Park; leads to drug-related arrest

CENTRALIA — Centralia police arrested a 29-year-old Sandoval man on drug-related charges over the weekend after they reportedly found him digging a hole with his hands in Library Park.

Christopher Ricketts, who doesn’t work for the City of Centralia or the library, reportedly told officers he was trying to fix a waterline.

A subsequent search of Ricketts reportedly revealed less than one gram of a substance believed to be methamphetamine in his jacket pocket. He was ultimately arrested and transported to the Marion County Jail.
