LAWRENCE COUNTY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Indiana State Police troopers arrested a man Tuesday in Lawrence County, Ind. for dealing methamphetamine.
The Indiana State Police received information in October that Nathan B. Anderson, 33, Mitchell, Ind., was involved in dealing large quantities of methamphetamine in, and around, Lawrence County, a news release said. The ISP then launched an investigation into Anderson.
Troopers learned on Oct. 21 that Anderson had methamphetamine and was traveling to sell it. ISP located Anderson driving near the intersection of SR 37 and SR 60 West and pulled him over.
During the stop, a trooper said they asked Anderson to exit his vehicle. As Anderson exited, a baggie containing suspected methamphetamine allegedly fell out of his pant leg onto the ground, police said.
A field test allegedly indicated the substance was methamphetamine and the total weight was just over 14 grams.
A further investigation followed, eventually leading ISP to request an arrest warrant on Anderson. The warrant was issued on Dec. 2, ISP said.
On Tuesday, Dec. 7, two troopers found Anderson at his residence on Woodville Road. He was arrested without incident and taken to the Lawrence County Jail.
Anderson now faces the following charges:
- Dealing Methamphetamine Over 10 Grams (Level 2 Felony)
- Possession of Over 10 Grams of Methamphetamine (Level 4 Felony)
