(LOOGOOTEE) - A Loogootee man was arrested Friday afternoon after officers discovered methamphetamine and paraphernalia in his home.

Around 2:37 P.M., Senior Trooper Jarrod Lents assisted Martin County Deputy Damon Baker and members of the Department of Child Services with a home visit at 406 Southwest 2nd Street, Loogootee.

During the home assessment, Deputy Baker asked the resident, 39-year-old Jackie R. Edmondson, Jr. of Loogootee, if he could bring his K9 "Virka" into the residence to sniff for narcotics, to which Edmondson agreed.

During the walk through, Virka positively indicated to the presence of narcotics. Trooper Lents and Deputy Baker were given consent to search the residence by Edmondson, during which they located a glass smoking pipe, scales, and a plastic baggie and straw with methamphetamine in it.

Edmondson was transported to the Martin County Jail and lodged without incident and charged with the following:

  • Possession of methamphetamine with a minor present, Level 5 Felony
  • Maintaining a common nuisance, Level 6 Felony
  • Neglect of a dependent, Level 6 Felony
