A two month-long methamphetamine investigation in Greene County has resulted in nine arrests.
On Friday, January 20th, 2017, officers and agents from the Indiana State Police, Jasonville Police Department, Linton Police Department, Worthington Police Department and DEA-Evansville executed 10 state search warrants.
Nine out of ten warrants were successfully served without incident.
The warrants were executed in Marion, Greene, and Clay counties.
All individuals were charged with Level 2 Felony- Conspiracy to Deal Methamphetamine.
As a result of the search warrants, approximately 5 ounces of crystal methamphetamine, 1/4 ounce of heroin, 1/2 ounce of crack cocaine, and fifteen firearms were seized (one of which was stolen.)
The following people were arrested:
