UPDATE: Officials arrest Coalmont man

Thursday, August 6, 2009

COALMONT -- Acting on a tip the homeowner was allegedly "growing marijuana," law enforcement agencies secured and served a search warrant at a Coalmont residence early Thursday morning.

According to information provided by the Clay County Sheriff's Department, members of the CCSD and Indiana State Police served the warrant at James "David" Swift's home around 2 a.m.

Officers discovered a marijuana growing operation, which included several items used in cultivating, a large amount of "finished product" and several items used in the ingestion of marijuana.

Swift, 41, was taken into custody, transported to the Clay County Justice Center and preliminarily charged with two class D felony charges of cultivating marijuana and possession of marijuana, and one class A misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia.

Posting 10 percent of a $7,000 cash bond, Swift is currently awaiting formal court proceedings per the court calendar.

While the investigation continues, officials confirmed Swift's charges could be amended and an occupant of the residence could face formal charges after the case is reviewed by the Clay County Prosecutor's Office.
