Tip leads to prescription drug arrest

Friday, October 16, 2009

Rocky Allen Schauinger
An anonymous tip provided law enforcement enough information to arrest a former Indianapolis man for allegedly selling prescription drugs.

According to a press release provided by Clay County Sheriff Mike Heaton, details are limited due to the ongoing investigation.

However, Heaton confirmed the department received anonymous information about a male subject attempting to sell prescription drugs at an undisclosed local convenience store early Thursday afternoon.

Within a short time, the Clay County Sheriff's Department's narcotics detective and deputies, with assistance of members of the Brazil Police Department, were able to locate the suspect, who was later identified as Rocky Allen Schauinger, 30.

During the course of the investigation, officials confirmed they were able to perform a controlled purchase of prescription drugs from Schauinger.

Afterwarde, the BPD conducted a traffic stop and arrested Schauinger.

Transported to the Clay County Justice Center, Schauinger was preliminarily booked in on charges of dealing a controlled substance within one thousand feet of school property and maintaining a common nuisance.

A routine background check determined Schauinger was also wanted on an outstanding felony arrest warrant issued out of Hendricks County, Ind.

Although Schauinger, who currently resides in Brazil, was given a $7,000 cash bond (with 10 percent allowed) for the local charges during the booking process, jail officials confirmed to The Brazil Times he will remain incarcerated to await formal court proceedings due to the warrant.

The case will be turned over to the Clay County Prosecutor's Office for review.
