Update: Another Meth related drug arrest

Monday, February 18, 2008

On Monday, officials at the Clay County Sheriff's Department confirmed another traffic stop that led to the confiscation of drugs and precursors used in the manufacture of methamphetamine and the arrest of another suspect on drug related charges.

According to a press release provided to The Brazil Times, sometime Saturday evening CCSD deputies James Switzer and Brison Swearingen and Brazil City Police Sergeant Dennis Archer performed a traffic stop at an undisclosed location within Brazil city limits.

During the traffic stop, officers determined Courtney Anderson, 18, Terre Haute, did not have a driver's license and had a false and fictitious vehicle registration.

Upon further investigation, officers discovered more than 4 grams of methamphetamine in the vehicle along with precursors used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

Officers obtained a search warrant and located several more precursors used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

Anderson was taken into custody and transported to the Clay County Justice Center, where she was preliminarily charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.

Jail officials confirm Anderson remains incarcerated with a cash bond of $25,000.

Early Saturday morning, the CCSD seized two active methamphetamine labs, the remains of a third meth lab and arrested at least 13 individuals on various drug related charges.

Due to the ongoing investigation, The Brazil Times will provide further updates as they become available.
