English traffic stop leads to drug bustMarch 22, 2019
From Local Sources
ENGLISH — A traffic stop Tuesday by Indiana State Police on State Road 64 in English quickly turned into a drug investigation.
Police say Justin Brooks, 33, English was driving a white, 2002 Chevrolet Silverado at the time of the traffic stop. During the investigation, Brooks was seen digging under the driver’s seat. A state police detective asked Brooks to exit his vehicle for officer safety purposes and, when he did, a hypodermic needle fell onto the ground.
Troopers searched Brooks’ vehicle and located what was suspected to be methamphetamine, heroin, 13 hypodermic needles and other drug paraphernalia items.
Authorities booked Brooks into the Crawford County Jail on preliminary charges that included Level 6 felony counts of methamphetamine possession, possession of heroin, unlawful possession of hypodermic needles (13 counts) and misdemeanor counts of operating while intoxicated, driving while suspended (prior) and possession of paraphernalia.
Police say Brooks also had an outstanding warrant out of Crawford County for driving while suspended and an outstanding warrant out of Harrison County for theft.
