Man bound over on assault charge

Staff Reports

A 32-year-old Dresslerville man was bound over Friday on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon, accused of trying to stab his brother during Carson Valley Days weekend.

East Fork Justice Tom Perkins ordered Marvin Dressler to appear Tuesday before District Judge Dave Gamble.

Perkins reduced Dressler’s bail to $20,000 bondable.

Witnesses said late June 10, Dressler allegedly showed up with the knife as his 29-year-old brother was attending the annual street celebration in downtown Gardnerville.

The victim ran away from Dressler who chased him until he realized sheriff’s deputies were in the area and left in his vehicle. The victim was uninjured.

A 46-year-old Gardnerville Ranchos woman is to appear Oct. 25 in District Court to answer charges that she entered homes of friends from church and stole prescription medicine.

Maureen Ross waived her preliminary hearing Wednesday and is to appear before District Judge Dave Gamble on charges of burglary and possession of a dangerous drug without a prescription.

She was released on her own recognizance.

East Fork Justice Tom Perkins told her to stay away from the victims and to make her physician aware of her arrest.

According to reports, deputies were contacted Oct. 9 by a victim who said her Vicodin had been stolen several times over the past two months and she suspected Ross.

The victim said a neighbor reported a woman entered her home Oct. 7 while she was at lunch with friends and came out after about a minute.

She described the woman and the vehicle she was driving.

The victim said she suspected Ross, but wanted to report the incident to her pastor before she called the sheriff’s office.

Reports indicated there were at least two other church members who reported similar incidents with Ross.

Ross reportedly admitted taking the medication from the victims whom she befriended at church.

She told deputies she arranged to join the victim for lunch but canceled at the last minute and knew the woman would not be home, so she entered the residence.
