Parolee arrested after home visit


A Garland County woman was arrested on felony charges Monday after drugs and firearms were allegedly located inside her vehicle and residence during a home visit from her parole officer.

Jami Danielle Meyerpeter, 30, who lists a 183 Peachwood address was arrested at her residence at around 11:30 a.m. Monday and charged with felony possession of drug paraphernalia, felony unauthorized use of another person's property to facilitate a crime, and two counts of felony possession of firearms by a certain person, each punishable by up to 20 years in prison, two counts of felony possession of Buprenorphine and misdemeanor possession of Restoril with purpose to deliver.

She remained in custody in lieu of a zero bond Tuesday, and is set to appear in Garland County District Court on Oct. 23.

According to the probable cause affidavit, the 18th Judicial District East Drug Task Force was asked to assist a parole officer at the Peachwood address after firearms and drugs were located in Meyerpeter's residence during a home visit.

Investigators searched the area and reportedly found eight used syringes, three unused syringes, numerous empty plastic bags, two plastic baggies containing suspected marijuana and a plastic bag containing one and a half Buprenorphine pills were found inside Meyerpeter's vehicle.

Inside her residence they allegedly located a .22-caliber pistol, a 9-mm pistol, a set of digital scales, 23 Restoril pills, assorted ammunition, nine syringes, two loaded syringes, a baggie labeled "Valium" containing an unknown white powder substance, a bag containing suspected marijuana and a metal case containing numerous glass smoking devices.

Meyerpeter reportedly told investigators that the powdered substance was crushed up Valium pills and all the items located during the search belonged to her. The residence is not owned by Meyerpeter, and the homeowner stated he was unaware of the items being on his property.

Meyerpeter was convicted of felony possession of a controlled substance in 2016.

• An inmate at the Garland County Detention Center allegedly caused over $2,000 in damages to his holding cell after he became irate and started breaking things.

Stephen S. Digiacomo, 32, who lists the city streets as his address, reportedly destroyed part of his cell around 6 p.m. on Sept. 23.

According to the incident report, Digiacomo was allegedly placed into one of four cells in the detention center equipped with video surveillance used to monitor special management inmates.

While inside the cell, Digiacomo reportedly became irate, ripping the camera from the ceiling and banging it against the cell door. After he had broken the video camera, he allegedly tore a mounted table off the wall and began to slam it against the cell door.

His actions reportedly rendered the video camera and cell door inoperable for their intended purposes. He caused around $2,700 in damages.
