Man arrested for drugs, false reporting

At approximately 8:05 p.m. Sunday, the Fremont Police Department arrested Connor C. Ewoldt, 26, of Lincoln on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs following an investigation in the parking lot of a business in the 700 block of north Broad Street.

Officers received a report of an impaired driver and observed Ewoldt driving a vehicle matching the one driven by the impaired driver. Ewoldt pulled into the business parking lot where he was contacted. Ewoldt showed signs of impairment and was asked to step from the vehicle. As he did so, officers noticed an orange cap similar to one commonly used to cover a hypodermic needle. Ewoldt would not allow officers to search his car. The Fremont Police K9 did a “sniff” of the vehicle and gave a positive indication for drugs. A search yielded drug paraphernalia including syringes and a pill cutter, a small amount of cocaine and schedule 2 pills.

Ewoldt was also charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and false reporting. He was charged with false reporting after telling officers that he had a child who was being babysat by a teenager in Lincoln. Lincoln police officers did a welfare check where the child was supposed to be and learned Ewoldt had no children.
