MARTINSVILLE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Indiana State Police officers concluded a months-long drug investigation on Tuesday that resulted in three arrests, two of whom were from Bloomfield, Ind., and over 15 grams of methamphetamine being seized.

ISP had been investigating a Bloomfield, Ind., house since May 17 when an officer attempted to serve an arrest warrant and suspected drug activity at the residence. After receiving multiple search warrants, the officer searched the house and found approximately 16 grams of methamphetamine, drug paraphernalia, digital scales, small baggies and firearms.

Three suspects were identified during the search and ISP officers obtained arrest warrants for each of them. On May 19, officers located two of the suspects at a separate residence in Greene County and arrested them both. Charles Proctor, a 48-year-old man from Bloomfield, and Jeremy Hall, a 37-year-old from Springville, were both arrested and taken to Greene County Jail.

Proctor now faces charges of meth possession under five grams with intent to deal, a felony, along with maintaining a common nuisance, also a felony, and possession paraphernalia, a misdemeanor. Meanwhile, Hall faces one charge of methamphetamine possession, a level 6 felony.

After months of searching for the third suspect, on Tuesday ISP officers located 26-year-old Bloomfield resident Kenneth Fielder while he was driving through the Martinsville, Ind., area on his way to Indianapolis. Officers were able to make a traffic stop on State Road 67, took Fielder into custody and transported him to the Morgan County Jail. He now faces one charge of dealing methamphetamine, a level 2 felony.
