Although several drug suspects are currently incarcerated at the Clay County Justice Center after a warrant sweep Thursday, officials continue to search for more.

"We are still looking for more suspects," Clay County Sheriff Mike Heaton told The Brazil Times before press time Thursday night.

Members of the Clay County Sheriff's Department and the Clay County Prosecutor's Office started the search in Parke County for 14 suspects wanted on outstanding arrest warrants for charges involving allegations of the sale of prescription drugs or methamphetamine. However, the two suspects were not at home.

GOOD JOB CCSD !

I knew one of the women when she was a kid. I can't believe how horrible she looks!!! Meth sure does take a toll. Hope she gets help before it's too late.

-- Posted by th1953 on Thu, Jun 17, 2010, at 9:44 PM

The sheriff's department has done their job; now let's see if the prosecutor will finally do his and put these people in prison.

-- Posted by mk47394 on Thu, Jun 17, 2010, at 10:01 PM

I new one of these people growing up too, but she has been through this before, so what does that tell ya??? The best thing or some of these people is to get the hell out Brazil and find life somewhere else whether it get's better or not. You stick around this place and get sucked in, then you are always around thoses people. There is no getting away from it unless you better yourself and get away from those that lead you into it. I am afraid for my kids to grow up here, there is nothing for them to do to stay out of trouble. FOR THOSE OF YOU LAUGHING, THIS COULD BE YOUR KID SOMEDAY! Especially in Brazil, you could be the wealthiest person and get caought in the wrong crowd! It happens to everyone, just teach them well.

-- Posted by nurse92 on Thu, Jun 17, 2010, at 10:03 PM

WOO HOO!!! Now, LOCK THEM UP AND THROW AWAY THE KEY!!! Oh and while we are at it. Let's not allow drug offenders into public housing.. Just because people are poor doesn't mean they should be forced to deal with these kind of people next door!

-- Posted by Simpletruths on Thu, Jun 17, 2010, at 10:03 PM

These people will be out to do their thing again...very soon. The prosecutor and judges will let them out with a low bond then they will be recruiting some of them to snitch on more. I know they need snitches because the police can't do their job without the help of these lowlifes. Now CCSD is saying the investigation has taken several months. I know of at least 2 snitches out there now who are doing meth and manufacturing and the sherrifs department is allowing this because they need them to rat out their friends. I hope they all get what they deserve. Jail doesn't work if it only lasts a week or so. then they are out and still stealing and manufacturing this terrible drug. Send em to prison, let the inmates teach them a lesson!!Pee test all former inmates and and lock em up if they fail.period.

-- Posted by CCmudman on Thu, Jun 17, 2010, at 10:19 PM

and get the kids out of this terrible danger. Take em from the partents and never let the parents see them again

-- Posted by CCmudman on Thu, Jun 17, 2010, at 10:22 PM

I agree with CCmudman. All you have to do is give the cops a name.Doesn't matter if its a lie..Just give them a name and make a deal...Have all the charges against you dropped cause your a snitch..Then they go on selling their drugs cause they know they are protected by the cops cause their the snitch..I think everyone that lives in the village should be drug tested. I know there are some good people there.but, the bad outweigh them..

-- Posted by whatthe? on Thu, Jun 17, 2010, at 10:55 PM

mk47...

I believe the prosecutor was out there with the sheriff's dept at crack of dawn when these guys were caught. At least that was in initial article.

Something about witnessing the procedures..hopefully so he will have a strong case and first hand account of the details. Has to be a joint effort to work smoothly. Sounds like several branches of our local government were working together.

I get irritated when people say that there is nothing for children to do in Brazil but get into the "wrong" crowd. There is one opportunity that has been around for decades that can and will take a person anywhere they want to go. It took me away from the farm when the work of the day was done and it filled many an hour while I was on ships in the middle of the seas with "nothing to do". READ a book!

There is a church on almost every corner, parks, and plenty of roads to walk down with a few "good" people as companions. We have 4H, Boy & Girl Scouts, SOS, our school extra-curricular activities, festivals, and as much as there is anywhere in the world to keep a person occupied. There is no need for anyone, child or adult, to escape into the "wrong" crowd or into drugs, only the desire to do so.

I know one of these offenders and the family. I feel sorry for the children, but if you do the crime you need to do the time.

One thing that people fail to understand is that our courts, our law enforcement, and our prison system all work on a budget provided by the taxpayer. It costs you and I to take offenders off the streets and provide for their basic human needs for the time they are incarcerated. There are many times that the Dept. of Corrections will not take an offender that has been sentenced due to lack of space, leaving that person at the County Jail, which backs up the entire system. The judge can hand down any sentence the law allows or specifies, but if the system is full it is full to the point that the law says the offender cannot serve the sentence. Would you rather have a "druggie" on the streets or a murderer or rapist?

-- Posted by Leo L. Southworth on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 8:14 AM

THey all should try Narcotics Anonymous I know from experience this program when worked and if you remain clean can and will change your life. Cindy looks horrible she used to be so pretty. Jason was such a good kid so sad and Heidi Harper really wow she had it all.. It is so sad when you see a father and son or mother and daughter being arrested together.. seriously parents what are you doing..63 years old and still on the "devils drug" it is way past time to GROW UP!!!!

-- Posted by ibclean76@yahoo.com on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 8:47 AM

Have to agree with Leo on this one. I also grew up in Brazil. And never did I get into drugs or trouble and I and my friends always found plenty of things to do to occupy our time. What happened to a child's imagination? Have video games killed imagination? Drugs are the quick and easy way to make money-try holding down a full time job-like the rest of us. Great job arresting these criminals!!

-- Posted by millertime on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 8:54 AM

It doesn't matter where you grow up...Brazil, Indy, Chicago, Memphis, New York, or LA every city has it's underside. There will always be people that make poor choices and run on the wrong side of the law. That seems to be more of a character trait/flaw than the ablility of any particular city to entertain it's youth. I am sick and tired of hearing how Brazil doesn't offer anything for the kids to do. It wasn't that long ago I was a teenager and my friends and I found things to do without destroying other peoples property or going to jail. Most of the time we went to the movies or simply met other kids in town and talked. Now I hear the kids say, "I'm bored" when they have all the electronics and toys that can be imagined. Maybe Leo is on to something. Let them read a book and use their imaginations for a change. Perhaps then they will learn how to entertain themselves and stop expecting other people to do it for them.

-- Posted by My opinion counts on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 8:58 AM

Once again, thank you to all of the Clay County law enforcement personell. It takes a real team effort to get to this point with a sweep this large. I hope all the law enforcement and everyone in the court system involved knows that the vast majority of this community are very grateful for your efforts and success to bring the drug problem in clay County under control. Keep up the good work.

I almost closed without saying this but here goes anyway: Leo you are so out of touch with the real world.

-- Posted by jddriver4960 on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 9:18 AM

My name is Shaun Seeley i was arrested for resisting arrest on 6-16-10. I was mistaken for Jason Grigsby and was brought to the ground,kicked in the head and back because i had a cell phone in my hand. All i was doing was droping off a job application to be taken in for me. At no time ever did i resist arrest. When it was over they did say sorry i geuss your not jason and it was a cell phone. They had to arrest me because they already stomped on me. Im no angel but i still didnt need to be treated like that.

-- Posted by gina grigsby on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 9:53 AM

Shaun,

I am sorry you got arresetd, but it seems your post was posted by one of the family of two arrested. At least by the same last name. When you surround yourself with drug addicts and drug dealers, you are setting yourself up for what you got. You have to expect the police to do what they need to do to be safe and go home to thier families. Maybe you have learned a lesson...We were not there, but as you said, you are no angel. When they told you to drop what you had and hit the ground, did you??????????

-- Posted by Kimbro1967 on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 10:05 AM

Wow Shaun they do that a lot beat the person before anything. I have pictures of my friend when we got pulled over. They mistaked him for someone else pulled him out of the car, brought him to the ground and beat the crap out of him. He had road rash pretty much on the entire side of his face.

Also when you people were young the movies at the theater were up to date not months old were we hve already rented them, you had the skating rink, and were allowed to hangout in town. Now if the police see us in town we get kicked out even if not doing anything wrong. Now we can't even go to the park without creppy men sitting and watching us and what are we supposed to do go swing and play in the slides at 17,18,19 years old?

-- Posted by lilmomma on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 10:18 AM

Well said Kimbro1967...There's an old saying "Birds of feather flock together". Shaun, I'd say your reason for being there is more than just dropping off an application. You don't go into a meth dealer's residence without knowing there's death candy being sold there. I'd say your account of what actually happened when the police confronted you is also DRAMATIZED. Truth is, you were probably told several times to do something and you refused to follow the instructions.

-- Posted by flycatcher on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 11:21 AM

I really hope that all of those caught in the web of addiction get the much needed help that they need. I was right in their position 6 yrs ago and I thank God that the court had mercy on me and sent me to Mission Teens. I was ready for the help and maybe one out of this whole group of people maybe just one is ready for help too. I've been in the newspaper and been in the jail, and I was completely set free from the bondage of drugs only because of the Lord Jesus Christ and those who believed in me. It is my hope that more people could be arrested so that all may have the same opportunity that I had. Unfortunately, some are not ready and may not want to change, but there is someone who does and if we give up then they might not get the chance. Thank you to all the legal personnel, and people who were instrumental in helping me! I knew the two youngest arrested and it breaks my heart to see them like nevertheless, they didn't get there overnight and it will take hard work for them to change their lives.

-- Posted by set_free on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 11:58 AM

(applauds set_free) You should be very proud of yourself for knowing a change needed to be made and you made it! Good for you!

As for the faces above .. I used to hang out with one female's sister all through HS. None of us did drugs or smoked .. we 'cruised the 'bash', sat in the Kroger parking lot, and drove back and forth from TH to Brazil on US 40 or SR 42. Never got arrested, never was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Didn't hang out with the known 'druggies' .. then or now. Boring? Pffft! We made our own fun that didn't include vandalism, spray paint, theft, drugs or arrests.

If kids are being kicked out of the Kroger parking lot, I can assure you it isn't because they "aren't doing anything wrong". I've seen the mess in the parking lot (food wrappers, empty bottles of pop, cigarette butts and anything else that can be tossed out or at each other, thump-thump-thump of the music, rude comments to passersby .. you get the picture). The full-timers at Kroger don't get paid to be your maid.

Think Brazil is "boring"? Then instead of hanging out, getting into trouble or hooked on drugs .. focus on your studies .. get a degree .. and get out of Brazil for good! Please!

I have to side with JDDRIVER4960 this go-round .. not too many kids these days are readers. I know my youngest HATES to read now because in early elementary, he was required to read nearly 50 pages/day. Way too much to hold the attention of a 8-9yo and easy to get burned out on reading. :(

I'm very happy these guys were caught. I didn't even know my friend from HS's little sister was into this sort of thing .. such a shame. She used to be such a beautiful (inside & out) girl.

Good job to all involved in their capture!

All I can Say-is Awesome Job!

Clean Clay County UP!

-- Posted by dbltrbl on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 1:11 PM

Great Job CCSD, now head south and help rid Clay City of these idiots. I know Rob Gambill knows alot of them from this area and if the police really want them, they will bring the law down here. Help clean our county of these "people" and fry em when they are caught. Press them with all the force of the law and put them away for a long time.I'm tired of seeing the same people in the news and running around like they have not problems in the world. Bust their a$$. and throw away the key!!! get tough on prosecution and not just arrests. If the judges and prosecutor can't put them away, replace them and lets get someone in there with some balls to hit them hard and long!!

-- Posted by CCmudman on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 1:32 PM

And Leo, I don't want druggies,murderers or rapist on the streets. I want them all prosecuted and doing their time. If the courts let them go because they are too full, why even bother arresting them. I say put them 25 to a cell and let them fight over what little food provided for them. We can't just let them go because we don't have room for them. Meth leads to many other crimes also, theft, assault, murder,rape,...Don't let them go because we don't have room. That is a stupid excuse for releasing criminals back into our society without them being punished. If this is common practice, then lets get rid of all the incompetent prosecutors and judges and start fresh with someone that wants to rid us of this and not make a profit from busting them. We all know the money is in arresting them and not prosecuting them.Get real...lock em up and throw away the key.Norman Eugene Taylor has been out on bond and not tried for at least 6 months and noone is watching him continue his dirty dealing. They just let him snitch and manufacture and deal meth!! get on the ball and lets pee test everyone out on bond, every week. Then we will know who is serious about cleaning up their community!!

TO ALL YOU PEOPLE WHO THINK YOUR PERFECT ARE WRONG THERE IS SOMEONE IN EVERYONES FAMILY WHO HAS ISSUES AND TO THE ONES THAT DONT BELIEVE SEELEY THATS OK BECAUSE WE KNOW THE TRUTH HE DID KNOW WRONG TO BE TREATED LIKE HE WAS OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT NEED TO GET TOGETHER AND GET THEIR PRIORITIES STRAIGHT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO HELP PEOPLE NOT HURT THEM AND FOR THE ONES WHO HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE TWO THAT HAVE THE SAME LAST NAME THEY WOULD HELP ANYONE KNOW MATTER WHAT IT TAKES YOU COULD NOT ASK FOR BETTER PEOPLE SO WHILE YOU SIT THERE AND JUDGE YOU NEED TO OPEN YOUR EYES AND REALIZE NO ONE IS PREFECT WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES AND TO THE TO WITH THE SAME LAST NAME WE LOVE YOU AND SAME TO YOU SEELEY

-- Posted by hookerhoe7586@yahoo.com on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 2:07 PM

Hookerhoe???? is that a confession. It doesn't matter how nice and generous these people might be, the fact is they broke the law and should be punished. Yes evryone has someone they care for that does stupid things, that doesn't mean they shouldn't be punished for it just because they are'nice' people. They are druggies. and as for the guy who got beat up, he was resisting law enforcement and mouthing off at them. He got just exactly what he deserved. If you fight the law, the law will win. We can't have people resisting even if they feel it is unjutified. The law is the law and the police should be respected at all times. Also, no need for caps...that's just rude!!

-- Posted by CCmudman on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 2:33 PM

i used to hang with some of those people and when i decided to get my life straight they told me how ashamed and i was doing the wrong thing.

it is about time they got in trouble. yea look and me now and look at them now!!!!!!!!!!!

thank god i got away from them, they just cause pain to everyone around them

-- Posted by butterfi on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 2:42 PM

I don't think it is right to wish harm on these people. Yes the drug does cause these people to hurt themselves and others, but we should remember that it is someone's son, daughter, sister, brother, mom or dad. These people have made conscious decisions to break the law, and therefore should receive the just consequence to that action but I think they should also be offered help. A "help" that removes them far from Brazil for a time and season to get their head clean and a chance to see that they can have a full and meaningful life outside of their comfort zone(which is Brazil)! It truly changed my life and have seen it change 100's of peoples lives. I hope the God provides each one of these people with whatever it takes to remove the garbage that has destroyed their lives.

-- Posted by set_free on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 3:03 PM

The "help" I'm talking about is called Mission Teens, Inc.

The website is www.missionteens.com and it is FREE, so there is no excuse for not being able to afford help. It has changed many, many people.

If you know someone who is without hope, check it out. All you need is a little bloodwork and return fare back to wherever you are from.

-- Posted by set_free on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 3:13 PM

Help is a great idea, but these characters dont want help. They want out to continue thier unlawful activity. Just watch and see, They will be out in a week or so and right back where they started.evrybody watch and see. It will happen because our system is badly broken and excuses are being thrown around for the incompetence of the court system. Bust em and let em go about their business. That';s the way Clay County seems to be working. Fix the broken system and prosecute these character to the full extent of the law. That's what it takes. Drug test em alot and make em worry about carrying on this way.

-- Posted by CCmudman on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 3:53 PM

I GOT NEWS FOR U KIMBRO1967 I HAVE NEVER DONE ANYTHING AND YES THAT WAS MY DAD AND BROTHER THAT WAS ARRESTED AND THAT WAS IN THEIR PAST THEY HAD DONE REALLY WELL AND WAS GETTING THEIR LIVES BACK ON TRACK AND I GUARANTEE IF EVERYONE WENT OVER THEIR FAMILY TREE IT WOULDN'T BE TOTALLY PERFECT EVERYONE HAS FAULTS AND YES MY DAD AND BROTHER ARE THE TWO MOST CARING PEOPLE THEY HAVE A HEART AND FOR U ALL TALKING TRASH ABOUT ME AND MY FAMILY HOW WOULD U LIKE IT IF IT WAS BEING DONE TO U AND U FAMILY CAUSE NOBODY'S PERFECT

-- Posted by gina grigsby on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 4:31 PM

You have a hopeless and helpless attitude. I WAS one of those people and my life has been radically changed. Did I want help in the beginning, no. My heart was changed, and people like you said I was hopeless. So what we need is more people that understand the bondage that drugs cause and lead people to the "ONE" who can help and for heaven's sake PRAY! Have we all forgotten that tool??? Because God changes people, even pessimistic doubters who would rather fill our prison system that court stipulate people to a place that actually offers help!

-- Posted by set_free on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 4:31 PM

well... where to begin. 1st of all to everyone its not fair ta judge gina by her last name... SURPRISE!! but i know for a fact she is NOt a druggie. so just squash that right now. 2nd none of u were there so no one can say what mr seeley was or wasnt doing. 3rd everyone saying there is plenty of things for our children to do in clay county HA!! our kids cant ride their skateboards down the streets but we can close them down for the bars ta have a street party. im glad everyone believes clay county is doing their jobs but as someone stated earlier its only bcuz of the snitches making them look good. i know of three diferent insidents where there is adults acting innappropriate with children and NOTHING was done about it. maybe because that takes actuall investigation and police work. im not saying people should just b allowed ta run the streets selling or doing drugs. i also have a teenage child and DO NOT want her ta b influenced by the curse of meth. but i am also living proof that people can change. but u hafta want too. it sadens me that our prison systems are so packed with drug addicts that we dont have room ta lock up rapist and cho mo's... now ta end this, jason grigsby has been changing his life. he has been clean and working a full time job trying ta better himself. i understand u do the crime u do the time. it just sucks that we hafta wait a year or two down the road ta bust them. just so we can make sure our snitches are n hiding, and have plenty of drugs for themselves.

-- Posted by 3bigpits on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 4:58 PM

Are these two Grigsby's who were arrested any relation to the Greg Grigsby who committed animal cruelty and death to the three kittens in the bag he bashed against a pole on June 2, 2010? What are the odds?

-- Posted by Claycountian on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 5:28 PM

OK Mr Southworth..refer back to my statement about nothing to do in Brazil..My children are involved in scouts,4H, dance, and we go to church! that's because I make them do these things to stay out of trouble.Not all children are cut out to do these things and not all kids have caring parents to keep them out of trouble. Tht is where it needs to begin, but if they are all on drugs, they don't care about those kids! It's a vicious cycle. These people should not be allowed to have children or government funding to live on once they are ever in jail for felony!. I can't let my child ride their bike around because what crazy freak might try to offer them drugs or molestation. Can't let them go to the park alone in fear some neglected kid is going to take it out on my kids, etc., etc., etc.. This town is full of trash! I do not mean the kind you put in a can either! The times are different now old man, so get off your high and mighty, I'm so perfect trip! This is not the 40s and 50s when life was fun and easy going! We need a good rehab system for these people and its difficult enough to find good health care in this town! The KH here sucks! As a nurse I see many people addicted to narcotics and it is the doctors who prescribed the medications fault! And, murderers are running free in Brazil..Have they ever arrested anyone who killed Tonya Pickett and Ricky Mustard and a few others after that? NO..You can get away with murder, rape, molestation and everything else, but drugs..you get the rap. I am not saying it is OK for drugs,BUT ..spend some time on that other stuff too!! Im done I could go on and on about this town! Yes, it happens everywhere but, this is a small town and it is more visible. Take a look around next time you are in Walmart!

-- Posted by nurse92 on Fri, Jun 18, 2010, at 6:09 PM

I'm with Nurse92 to a large extent here. There may be plenty of things for good kids to do, but not many kids with whom to do them. Less than 10% of Clay County adults have a college degree and even the upper brackets of median incomes here is low rent. You might as well send your kids into the Clay County Jail as Forest Park. The kids in the park are the inmates' illegitimate drug spawn. When public school teachers and other government employees are your community's top earners, you're in deep doodoo. I try to stay in my remote, ClayCo rural home. I try to avoid Brazil. I can't see that there's anyone but government workers, government recipients and criminals up there. All three are looking for a handout. Do note the number of people arrested for drugs whose children are on Medicaid and they themselves on welfare. It's not that they can't make it, they just won't. And that's one of the reasons we can't get decent jobs to come to this area. Microsoft or Pfizer would be nuts to come and try to hire these yocals. Hence, we're stuck with $8-$20/hr jobs and the poverty-related crime they generate.

WELL LLAMAMAN TALK ABOUT STAYING ON SUBJECT. ONCE AGAIN U PEOPLE ARE JUDGING PEOPLE BY THEIR LAST NAMES. THATS JUST NOT FAIR. THE TOPIC AGAIN IS "DRUGS IN CLAY COUNTY" JUST TA REFRESH UR MEMORY

hookerhoe-- I had to laugh at your post when trying to defend Seeley you wrote "HE DID KNOW WRONG." I'm sure that you used the word "know" in place of the word "no" by accident, but you were probably closer to the truth in what you wrote than what you meant. I believe at least one of the people at the house where he was arrested had drugs on them. As far as Clyde and Jason go, I think we could ask for better people--good people don't sell poison.

wow SNOW ur always so quick ta pass judgement on people. i believe what HOOKERHOE was saying about clyde and jason was they have GREAT BIG WONDERFUL hearts not that they did NO wrong. there for i hope u dont live in a glass house cuz ur always on here throwing stones.

-- Posted by 3bigpits on Sat, Jun 19, 2010, at 12:01 AM

3bigpits- I don't believe that people with "GREAT BIG WONDERFUL hearts" sell dope. As far as throwing stones, I've posted numerous positive comments on stories and will continue to do so. However, when I see B.S. like hookerhoe's post, I won't hesitate to reply.

As far as living in a glass house, hardly. I'm not perfect and have never claimed to be, but I don't deal dope, beat my wife or kids, torture animals, drive drunk, etc., and neither do the people I choose to associate with. So, unless my occasional speeding puts me in the same category as these people, I think my so called "rock throwing" is a fairly safe activity.

There are a lot of people who think everybody is some sort of a criminal. This is probably because that is the type of people they surround themselves with--guess what, there is a huge portion of the population that isn't involved in any criminal activity and they don't have much patience for those who are or for those who claim that the criminals are wonderful big hearted people.

well SNOW i guess i just seem to read the stories in which ur throwing the stones... and fyi... SPEEDING "IS" ALSO A CRIME. just make sure while ur doing ur "small crime" a poor innocent child doesn't accidentaly walk out in front of u... and a lil more info for ya... just because people make stupid choices doesn't mean they are in fact "bad" people... they can still have GREAT BIG WONDERFUL HEARTS

-- Posted by 3bigpits on Sat, Jun 19, 2010, at 1:33 AM

3bigpits- speeding isn't a crime, it's an infraction and children typically aren't up on the interstate. If I ever get a ticket for the extra five mph I occasionally exceed the limit by I will pay my fine and not ask anyone to come on here and say what a good hearted person I am.

You did make one point that I agree with, people making mistakes doesn't make them bad people, but dealing drugs does. A mistake is something that isn't done intentionally, you can make a mistake on a test or mistakenly pick up 2% milk when you intended to get whole, but dealing drugs sounds like something done intentionally. From what I can tell, a lot of these good hearted people keep making the same "mistake" over and over again. Check their names on Indiana Offender Database or just search their names on the times.

-- Posted by snow on Sat, Jun 19, 2010, at 2:02 AM

omg... im sorry... glad ta know that speeding/infraction isnt a crime last time I checked u still had ta go ta court for them... lol but im sure ur not always driving on the interstate... but i would like for ur ta take ur own advice...check the offender data base... CLYDE JASON GRIGSBY has never even had an infraction of any sort so yes in this case i consider this a mistake... he has been changing his life

-- Posted by 3bigpits on Sat, Jun 19, 2010, at 11:09 AM

OH AND FYI THE DEFINITION OF A CRIME IS ANYTHING THAT BREAKS THE LAWS OF THE LAND...

-- Posted by I. M. Lee Thall, Esq. on Sat, Jun 19, 2010, at 12:50 PM

Comparing a speeding ticket to drugs is pretty silly. Also, claiming he only "made a mistake", just because he had never been in trouble before is just as silly. The fact is, he had simply never been caught before.

A person does not just become a drug dealer like this over night. There were a series of events that led up to it, and most likely, many of them were illegal. Odds are, he had been performing illegal drug activities for quite some time, and is finally caught.

I applaud the police for a job well done. I truly hope this isn't the last for a while, and they continue to bust people like this. I think that big busts like this send a message. If the police in Clay County will do this on a more regular basis, we can at least let these people know that we are tired of it, and if they will not clean their act up, the police will clean them up.

well.. iam not an uneducated idiot... i have a high school diploma and then some.. and i was not comparing a speeding ticket ta selling drugs... was only stating that snow gets on here every week throwing stones at people when he shoudnt be ... the point of saying ta google clyde jason grigsby was so u could see that he also is not an uneducated idiot... u would see the numerous state championships he won ... he fell into a dangerous and unhealthy path in which could happen ta any body... anybody body living in cc since all there is ta offer is drugs,drugs and o yeah more drugs.. and criminal conversion is also an infraction does that mean its ok to steal? and as for my caps lock... ILL START PUTTING ALL MY COMMENT IN IT SOO U HARD TA READ IDIOTS CAN SEE WHAT IM SAYING....

-- Posted by 3bigpits on Sat, Jun 19, 2010, at 2:42 PM

bigpits, if you graduated from high school, you would have learned to use real words and at least spell a few of them correctly. Everyone makes typos, but your's aren't typos. Geeze now I'm arguing with an idiot. Bye!

Please be respectful to others ,as hard as it may be for you,and try to stay on topic. in which i have noticed YOU have not even commented on. but in case you have forgotten... read the user aggreement... and try ta refrain from name calling... THATS JUST RUDE!!!!

No one answered my question.....are these two Grigsbys related to the Greg Grigsby who bashed the kittens against the pole a few weeks back? Does anyone know?

-- Posted by Claycountian on Sun, Jun 20, 2010, at 12:02 AM

Yes they are, It's part of the extended family.

My thing here is people it's not really and truely all of CCSD job to watch over all of us like a shep. keeper.

Open your eyes and look around this town is small so you either know or are related to some one thats upto no good and if your denieing it? It's probable you or you precious off spring. Ask me,It happens in my family to.If a persons life gets so out of control you hurt yourself. That's your choose,But when you start pushing your pain on or hurt others"WRONG"!!

And on the note of Clyde Grigsby and Son. Remember when you were a chip off of the old block Jr.? "What the Hell Happened"?

Clyde Grigsby Sr. was such a sweetheart and good humored person.Do you think he's laughing at this one ole boy??

-- Posted by Cardonia Redneck on Sun, Jun 20, 2010, at 1:43 AM

3armpits, the CCSD did a fine job as does the BPD. This city and county is a haven for druggies and idiots. Rarely a week goes by (and most of the time it's daily), that someone from Brazil and/or Clay Co. is not arrested for dope. And we're not talking a population center here, it's a small town. And your claim that they just took the wrong road is stupid. They made a choice. There, that should cover the TOS.

Now how about you try using English when you post? While you're at it, throw in a cap, maybe a period or two and just for giggles maybe a comma.

-- Posted by I. M. Lee Thall, Esq. on Sun, Jun 20, 2010, at 2:14 AM

3bigpits, criminal conversion is a class A misdeameanor, not an infraction

-- Posted by you people are stupid on Sun, Jun 20, 2010, at 4:48 AM

i.m.lee.thall.... y do u even get on here since you never have anything ta say about the story we are all commenting on? u sit there and make a fool of yourself just being rude and putting other people down... im sooo sorry your a bitter old person but why dont you try ta act a little more mature? and nobodys saying they didnt make a poor choice excuse me for my mistake in calling it a mistake instead of poor choice

now ta you people are stupid.... im sorry im not exactly in tune with which crimes are which charge but it seems like you are but im pretty sure it gets dropped ta an infraction...

-- Posted by 3bigpits on Sun, Jun 20, 2010, at 1:21 PM

Wow, the lack of grammar from 3bigpits is just totally absurd. You should seriously be embarrassed to have only about a 3rd grade grammar level.

Back on topic. I believe that BPD and the CCSD do what they can. There are so many factors that have to be in order before they can plan and execute a bust like this. A lot of people think they can simply just jump in their cars and go out to perform it, but they do not realize the amount of work that has to go into it first. Warrants, proof, legal obligations all have to be done before, which explains why we do not get to see it happen on a daily basis.

I see people complain all the time about nothing being done, yet I am willing to bet that most do not do anything to help the situation themselves. The police cannot just simply pick random people and places to investigate. They need us to help point them in the right direction by making complaints and letting them know what we see or hear.

If you see something suspicious, report it. Take down a name, description, or plate number, and report it. People need to stop sitting on their hands and hoping the police will just take care of it.

Here is a bit of news for you Gina. First of all you should try reading comprehension. I never stated that you did anything wrong. Your dad and brother were both arrested on new charges, Not old ones. It looks like both were arrested, or at least charged with posession... Doesn't seem like a clean life. You have a lot to learn about the world. No need to look at my fanily tree... I, myself was addicted. Meth is terrible. I got away from it, changed my life, and am a productive member of society. You want to know the best part? I was NEVER arrested. I have no criminal background. Hopefully your family and friends can overcome the demon that Meth is. It leads to nothing but trouble. I just wish that more sweeps were done and more dealers were taken off the streets for good. Oh, by the way, you might try some punctuation the next time you post. It makes you seem like a 5th grade dropout. I guess the school system failed you...

-- Posted by Kimbro1967 on Mon, Jun 21, 2010, at 10:07 AM

Just a little F.Y.I. now days when your charged with dealing, or driving under the influence of a drug, they charge you with possesion.

-- Posted by 3bigpits on Mon, Jun 21, 2010, at 11:38 AM

(wonders if anyone else recognizes the similarity between GINAs ALL CAP post vs HOOKERHOEs?? Hmmmm.)

Back on topic - Fortunately or unfortunately, you're known by the company you keep. Whether you're selling the drugs, using the drugs or just sitting in the car while your buddy goes in to buy the drugs .. you're guilty by association.

In any sting operation, if you're there when the cops show up - you're going to be arrested and charged - even if it's "visiting a common nuisance".

It makes NO SENSE to charge piddly offenses and waste more taxpayers money (those of us who DO work) while the druggies walk out of jail in a few days with a nominal fine .. so they add as many charges to the list as they can! That would be a 'wake up call' to those with half a mind ..

You know it's wrong to hang out with known druggies .. so the "bishin' & wynin' WAAAHHH, I GOT CAUGHT" card has expired. You're dismissed.

-- Posted by Emmes on Mon, Jun 21, 2010, at 12:07 PM

OMG...I have to laugh when I read some of these posts! Whether you realize it or not some of you have fallen victim to having a battle of wits with unarmed people! Bazinga! Or maybe "ta"-zinga!

Keep up the good work CCSD and who ever else was involved. Maybe some of these "good hearted folks" will get some good jail time and those that want to get cleaned up can do so. I wish them luck cuz it's not easy breaking the hold that crap gets on a person. Even though they made a conscious choice to do this, they should have known better!

Ya'll have a great day now ya hear.

Here's a thought, if overcrowding the jails and prisons is a problem, maybe we need to look back a couple of decades to the way some crimes were dealt with. The judge gave the criminal a choice: Jail or Military Service. Let these low-lifes spend a few weeks in Marine or Army boot camp and maybe just maybe the discipline they get there will be what they need to help straighten out their lives.

Maybe they are trying to clean up their lives, however the point is still that they made poor choices and committed criminal acts. Perhaps they should have thought of the consequences of those acts before choosing to commit them, then they wouldn't be in the situation they are in now. The choices you make in life stay with you and can come back to affect you when you least expect them to. Better life choices tend to make for a better life. If you must cry, don't cry because they got caught, cry because they made the choice they did in the first place. If you put your hand on a hot stove and get burned is it your fault or the stove's fault? Think about it.

I was busted on 4-20-06. I can not believe the faces I keep seeing busted all over again. Do people not learn there lesson? I mean prison was my wake up call and I would never go back to that life. I just wish there was someone out there that actually cared enough to help these people. I am in my 2nd year of school to be come an AC. I just hope that I can reach some of them after I finish school. It is no life to live.
