(JACKSON CO.) - A traffic stop Thursday on I-65 near Seymour led to the discovery of meth.

The driver of the vehicle, 55-year-old Carl Rice, of Texas, was arrested for dealing meth. Information obtained during the stop led to officers searching an apartment in Seymour where two more individuals were arrested on numerous drug related charges

The investigation began at 12:47 p.m. when Indiana State Trooper Randel Miller stopped a 2002 Chevrolet Impala southbound on I-65 near the 51 mile marker. While speaking with the driver, Rice, Trooper Miller became suspicious of criminal activity taking place.

ISP K-9 Jinx alerted the trooper to illegal drugs in the vehicle. During a search, troopers found more than 40 grams of crystal meth and Rice was arrested.

Further information obtained from the scene led troopers and Seymour Police officer to Jackson Park Place Apartments in Seymour where armed with a search warrant officers found other illegal drugs and items related to dealing the drugs.

Two people inside the apartment, 35-year-old Kristin Campbell and 21-year-old John Wiltermood, both of Seymour were arrested at the scene.

Campbell and Wiltermood are both facing charges of conspiracy to deal meth, maintaining a common nuisance, possession of synthetic marijuana, possession of a syringe, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Wiltermood is also facing a charge of resisting law enforcement.

All three suspects were taken to the Jackson County Jail where they remain in custody. All three will soon be issued a court date to appear in the Jackson County Circuit Court.

Trp. Miller was assisted by numerous officers with the Indiana State Police and Seymour Police Department.
