Obnoxious behavior leads to drug bust

From local sources

LOOGOOTEE — An investigation into a weekend noise complaint lodged by a Loogootee business owner resulted in a man’s arrest on multiple drug charges.

Off-duty Indiana State Police Trooper Jarrod Lents received a complaint Saturday from the owner of Greenwich Antiques saying that tenants in apartments above the Broadway Street store were playing extremely loud music and shouting obscenities at customers entering the store. The behavior was so obnoxious it forced the store to close early, state police said.

On Monday morning, Lents and Trooper Steven Sexton attempted to speak to the residents of the two apartments above the antiques store. The resident of one apartment, 25-year-old Gregory T. Isaacs, answered the door and allowed the troopers inside. The troopers reported that they saw drug paraphernalia in an open area, secured a search warrant from Martin Circuit Court and located methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Isaacs was arrested and charged with Class D felony counts of possession of methamphetamine and maintaining a common nuisance, plus misdemeanor counts of marijuana possession and possession of paraphernalia.

Authorities booked Isaacs into the Martin County Jail.

No information about the tenant of the second apartment was available from police this morning.

The Martin County Sheriff’s Department assisted.
