On Tuesday, Indiana State Police officials arrested Gerald Scott Flint, 53, Brazil. The initial arrest was for Possession of a Legend Drug, a class D felony, out of Jackson County.
Additional charges were filed against Flint in Clark County Wednesday, for allegedly Impersonating a Public Servant, and Theft, both class D felonies.
The investigation began March 10, after a citizen registered a complaint to Indiana State Police (ISP) officials, alleging Flint was in Clark and Scott counties, near disaster areas, allegedly soliciting donations of disaster supplies, including food and water, as well as monetary donations for the organization Volunteer Medics Worldwide.
The donations collected were to be used to assist the victims of the severe storms and tornadoes that struck southern Indiana March 2.
During the collection of the donations, Flint allegedly sometimes led people to believe he was working in cooperation with Homeland Security.
According to ISP officials, Flint was not working with Homeland Security or any other known legitimate organization while collecting the donations and supplies.
During the course of the investigation, it was also discovered that Flint had allegedly provided and was in possession of antibiotic legend drugs. According to officials, it is unknown at this time how many people took possession of the antibiotic legend drugs from Flint.
Flint was incarcerated in the Jackson County Jail and is awaiting extradition to Clark County on charges filed against him.
According to officials, the investigation is ongoing as people from the Scott County and surrounding areas need to be interviewed.
ISP Trooper Matt Busick is leading the investigation. He is asking anyone who may have contributed supplies or monies to Volunteer Medics Worldwide, or directly to Flint, to contact him at the Indiana State Police Post in Sellersburg by calling 812-246-5424.
