• Two felony theft charges, two felony 5th-degree drug possession-not small amount marijuana and gross misdemeanor 5th-degree drug possession-not small amount marijuana charges were filed Jan. 21, 2022 against Holley A. Boney, 21, 113 N. Washington Ave., Springfield. A court appearance was set for 8:30 a.m. Feb. 15, 2022.

According to court documents, Springfield Police were called Sept. 19, 2021 by a woman who said she got a ride from Marshall to Springfield from Boney. The woman said after she was dropped off, several of her pill bottles had been taken from her belongings.

In addition, the woman said she asked Boney about taking the pills and was told “it was for her gas and time to drive her to Springfield” and she would not return them.

Springfield Police Officer Robert Hillescheim told Boney he was investigating the theft of prescription medication and asked if she had them. Boney said she did and made arrangements to return them to the victim.

Hillescheim asked Boney to retrieve the medications from a residence. After a short time, Boney returned and handed him a small, pink plastic bag containing several small, blue pills and four capsules. He asked Boney if that was all the medications she took. She replied she didn’t know.

Hillescheim identified the substances in the bag at 20 small, blue pills called Clonazepam 1 mg, a Schedule 4 narcotic. Also in the bag were four orange capsules identified as Adderall XR 20 mg, a Schedule 4 narcotic.

After removing the pills from the bag, Hillescheim noticed a white powder residue inside. An NIK test showed the residue tested positive for methamphetamine.

• Two misdemeanor domestic assault counts and one misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge were filed Jan. 24, 2022 against Robert W. Boney, 56, 113 N. Washington Ave., Springfield. Bail without conditions was set at 2,000. A pre-trial hearing was set for 10 a.m., Feb. 18, 2022.

According to court documents, Springfield Police Chief John Nicholson was dispatched at 5:56 p.m., Jan. 22, 2022 to 113 N. Washington Ave., Springfield for a domestic situation. Dispatch advised that a father hit his daughter, she went upstairs, called police, her mother went upstairs, and the phone call was disconnected.

At the scene, Nicholson said he heard yelling inside, knocked and a female voice said “come in.” Inside, he met a Kenda L. Boney, 51, Robert Boney and Holley Boney. Kenda Boney appeared to be digging through a couple garbage bags on the kitchen floor, wearing plastic gloves.

Kenda Boney said she “threw something away” and said Holley Boney pushed her, which she denied. Holley Boney said she was hit by Robert Boney, which he denied.

Kenda Boney said it was a wrestling match. Robert Boney told Holley to pack her things and get out of the house. She went upstairs.

Nicholson went upstairs, talked to Holley Boney and photographed her bloody nose. Holley said her father “popped her in the face,” making a fist and that he hit her in the face. Holley said Robert Boney told her if he goes to jail, he will kill her.

Holley Boney said Robert Boney had a traumatic brain injury and has anger issues and that her lip felt swollen.

Nicholson arrested Robert Boney and took him to the Brown County Jail.

The girl said she could see the an iPhone 6 camera pointed at her. She said her mother, a witness, and Gullicksen have the same phone that matched the description.
