Although details are limited due to the ongoing investigation, officials at the Clay County Justice Center confirmed Bobby J. Freeman, 45, and his wife Kimberly J. Freeman, 49, were booked into the facility after information gathered during a month-and-a-half-long investigation.
According to a Clay County Sheriff's Department press release, enough information was gathered on Monday for investigators to obtain a search warrant from Clay Circuit Court for the Freeman's home located at 314 West Kruzan Street.
During the search, officers located an undisclosed amount of marijuana, two firearms and approximately $5,000 in cash.
Officials at the Child Protective Services were contacted to take custody and ensure the safety and welfare of an unidentified, unrelated juvenile living in the home. No further information was released about the juvenile, who was picked up by a family member later in the evening.
Both Bobby and Kimberly were preliminarily charged with dealing marijuana and hash oil, possession of marijuana (under 30 grams), maintaining a common nuisance and neglect of dependent. Kimberly was also charged with dealing marijuana, hash oil, hashish, while Bobby was additionally charged with dealing in marijuana and hash oil.
They were both booked into jail on $10,000 cash bonds. While Kimberly was allowed to bond out for 10 percent ($1,000), Bobby was not allowed 10 percent due to allegedly being on probation in another county.
Since the Freeman residence was located within 1,000 feet of a school or public housing project, officials believe there will be more charges pending a case review by the Clay County Prosecutor's Office.
The Indiana State Police and Brazil City Police Department also participated in this joint investigation.
