A Des Moines man was arrested in Perry Monday on a warrant for assault and false imprisonment in connection with an incident in October in Perry.

In the course of Monday’s interaction, Olvera told the officer “he had marijuana on his person without being asked,” according to court records. A search of Olvera’s person disclosed a container in his pocket with 1 gram of marijuana.
