Man in jail on drug related charges

Thursday, July 10, 2008

A Rosedale man was arrested on several drug related charges Wednesday night, while officials are still looking for other suspects.

Details are limited because of the ongoing investigation, but officials at the Clay County Sheriff's Department confirm Aaron L. Evol, 24, Rosedale, was arrested on preliminary charges of possession of paraphernalia, possession of marijuana under 30 grams and possession of a methamphetamine drug lab.

According to information made available to The Brazil Times, officers were dispatched to an area near the intersection of County Road 1200 North and State Road 59 because of reports of suspicious activity involving one-three people and a vehicle.

As officers arrived, Evol, who was driving the vehicle, left the scene but was later stopped and taken into custody.

Meanwhile, a CCSD Deputy/K-9 Handler Brison Swearingen and K-9 Officer Dayk performed a search of the area and discovered an active clandestine methamphetamine lab inside an abandoned barn.

Although the other suspect(s) fled the scene on foot, Dayk was unable to track them for undisclosed reasons.

The Indiana State Police Clandestine Lab Team was contacted to clean the area and collect evidence where the meth lab was located.

Evol was transported and booked into the Clay County Justice Center on a $25,000 cash bond with no 10 percent allowed to await formal arraignment per the court schedule.

Officials, who have no description of the other suspects, request anyone who might have been in the area and seen anything between 10:30-11 p.m., Wednesday, contact the Clay County Sheriff's Department at 446-2535.

So, everyone is ok with the police when they get a druggie but if they enforce others laws everyone gets ups in amrs. How interesting. I am for getting scum of any kind off the street and away from my kids!

Thanks to all officers and K9's!

Glad to hear another "dirt bag" is off of the streets. A big thank you to the officers & dogs.

There are many more out there in trouble. Yet it seems the police are the only one's doing their share of work. What about friends and neighbors, do you know people in trouble with drugs? I know alot of kids who know someone on drugs. How to help these poor guys get out of the cycle?

I welcome our leaders of this town to give some input on the issue. Brainstorm. It is everyone's problem in the whole county. Lets hear something from everyone. Can the church's leaders join the police, mayors office and teachers to address this with parents? How about each township elect volunteer leaders to gather households to talk about this? I dont know. Anyone?

UhOhNoNo.....If he happened to sell or give some of his meth to your child would you still feel the same way?

I can see UhOhNoNo's point and unfortunately Big Pappy, even if it was your own child there is not a whole heck of a lot anyone can do except tough love until HE or SHE decides to break the cycle. I do suppose a mother could go to every drug dealer they can find that has sold her child drugs...but that child will always find it somewhere else. This whole post was really off the subject but oh well, just wanted to put that in there :)

He is not a "scum" or "dirtbag" he is in the wrong company of "friends". If you would read the article, you will notice there was other people involved in this as well, but yet the officers are not doing their job in trying to find them, they are pinning it all on one person.

maybe you need to read it again before you bash the police. i think that you missed the part where it says that the investigation is on going. if this "person" will not tell the police who it was that ran, then it makes the job of the police a little harder. but lets blame the police anyway. it is alot easier than to hold people responsible for their own actions.
