(MONTGOMERY COUNTY) - Indiana Conservation Officers arrested a Crawfordsville, Ind. following the discovery of an illegally killed deer.

FOX59 reports, officers responded to a rural area southwest of New Richmond, Ind. around 11 p.m. Friday to investigate a 911 call reporting shots fired.

Montgomery County Deputies contacted Conservation Officers whose weekend-long investigation led them to the Crawfordsville, Ind. home of Mark A. Ross, 48.

Following a discussion with officers, Ross admitted he shot the deer twice with a 20 gauge shotgun then left the scene leaving the dead deer in the field.

While Conservation Officers were at Ross' home they asked him about the strong marijuana odor they noticed when they entered.

Ross told officers he had been smoking shortly before they arrived.

He consented to a search and officers found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia in addition to the marijuana.

Ross is tentatively charged with multiple misdemeanor and felony charges related to the drugs and killing of the deer.
