According to information provided by the Clay County Sheriff's Department, an unidentified tipster told 911 dispatchers there was a strong odor coming from a car broken down near the intersection of State Road 59 and County Road 1100 South.
When officers from the CCSD and the Clay City Police Department arrived, Michael K. Butcher, 28, Bloomington, and William Hiatt, 34, Jasonville, were at the car.
Both were detained, transported to the Clay County Justice Center and preliminarily charged with improper use, transportation or possession of Anhydrous Ammonia.
After a case review by the Clay County Prosecutor's Office, both Butcher and Hiatt were formally charged with class A misdemeanors for storage or transportation of Anhydrous Ammonia on Tuesday.
With each facing $7,000 cash bonds, jail officials confirm both men remain incarcerated while awaiting formal court proceedings.
