Area residents arrested following drug bust
Four adults and two juveniles, all of Brazil, were arrested for various drug-related charges early Thursday morning during a juvenile home detention check.
According to a press release provided to The Brazil Times, Clay County Corrections Director John Tabasco and CCC Officer Logan Whitman contacted the Clay County Sheriff's Department and members of the Clay County Drug Task Force for assistance in checking on the whereabouts of a juvenile who apparently violated home detention.
When Tabasco, Whitman and K9 Handler/Deputy Josh Clarke and Deputy Josh Krause and members of the Brazil City Police Department arrived at a Brazil residence, located at 413 West Church St., they saw two individuals running into the rear of the home.
Two unidentified juveniles were taken into custody for undisclosed charges and transported to the Clay County Justice Center. Jail officials explained to The Brazil Times it is normal procedure to hold juveniles for no longer than six hours before they are transported to one of several juvenile detention facilities within Indiana. Upon further investigation, officers discovered an undisclosed amount of methamphetamine inside the home along with marijuana, several paraphernalia items and various controlled substances.
Four Brazil adults at the residence were taken into custody and transported to the Clay County Justice Center shortly after 1:30 a.m.
Kayla Walker, 20, and Jason Jeffers, 25, was booked on preliminary charges of possession of methamphetamine and possession of paraphernalia.
David A. Allsup and Zachary Corbin, both 35, were booked on preliminary charges of possession of methamphetamine, possession of paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance.
Jail officials confirmed each suspect has a $7,000 cash bond and potentially will remain incarcerated until arraignment proceedings can be scheduled at the Clay County Courthouse.
