From local sources
JASPER — A Jasper cellphone store released a statement today in the wake of a former employee’s arrest on a seven-count, drug-related warrant.
Jennifer Sellers, 45, of Elnora was contacted by police after several complaints about drug usage and possibly dealing at the business where she had worked as a manager were received, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department.
The sheriff’s department’s narcotics officer, an Indiana State Police K-9 unit and a Jasper Police Department officer went to The Cellular Connection at 3780 N. Newton St. on June 30, spoke with Sellers and found her in possession of a meth pipe, methamphetamine, marijuana and multiple types of controlled substances.
A warrant charging her with a Class B felony count of methamphetamine possession; three Class C felony counts of illegal possession of controlled substances; a Class D felony count of illegal possession of a legend (prescription) drug and misdemeanor counts of marijuana possession and possession of paraphernalia was issued out of Dubois Superior Court Wednesday. She was taken into custody at her Daviess County home Friday, according to the sheriff’s department.
Sellers is no longer an employee of The Cellular Connection, according to a company statement.
“We take the safety of our employees and customers very seriously, and in light of these allegations, we are conducting a full investigation. TCC will not publicly comment on ongoing legal matters but will continue to cooperate with legal authorities,” the statement said.
