Tip leads to drug arrests at Holiday FoodsApril 23, 2013
From local sources
JASPER — An off-duty deputy’s tip about supermarket purchases being made by a pair of men led to drug arrests Monday evening.
The tip that items used in the manufacture of methamphetamine were being purchased at Holiday Foods, 847 Third Ave., resulted in on-duty Dubois County Sheriff’s Department deputies going to the store at 6:30 p.m.
The deputies and Jasper Police Department officers made contact with Joseph E. Earl and Nicholas J. Guy, both 33 and of French Lick. They then called an Indiana State Police trooper and his K-9 partner to the scene.
Police said the K-9 alerted that there either was or had been narcotics in the vehicle occupied by the two men. A subsequent search revealed the presence of methamphetamine and marijuana packaged for sale.
Earl and Guy were arrested and preliminarily charged with Class A felony counts of dealing methamphetamine, Class C felony counts of possession of precursors and possession of controlled substances and misdemeanor counts of dealing marijuana. Additionally, Guy was charged with a Class D felony count of maintaining a common nuisance and Earl was charged with a misdemeanor count of visiting a common nuisance.
Police said the drug charges were enhanced because the site of the arrest was within 1,000 feet of a park, Bohnert Park. Authorities booked Earl and Guy into the Dubois County Security Center at 8:50 p.m.
