(AUSTIN) - Back on June 3rd, officers from the Austin City Police Department and the Indiana State Police responded to a local business in Austin in reference to suspected meth being located on the ground inside the store.

The manager of the store stated a customer brought a small plastic baggie to the checkout cash register and stated they had found it on the floor inside of the store.

A subsequent search of store surveillance equipment was able to determine who had lost the suspected meth.

Troopers identified 23-year-old Brandy Neace of Scottsburg as that person. Brandy had already left the store when police arrived but was later located and interviewed by a trooper.

A case report was filed with the Scott County Prosecutor's Office and an arrest warrant was issued for her arrest.

On July 14th Neace was arrested and taken to the Scott County Jail on a felony charge of possession of meth.

The other people were arrested on Sunday, after a trooper from the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg made a traffic stop on Interstate 64 East around the 111 Mile Marker, (near Corydon).

During the traffic stop the trooper sensed criminal activity was afoot so he called for Indiana State Police K-9, "Teague", which alerted on the vehicle. A subsequent search located illegal narcotics and the following people were arrested.

The driver, 47-year-old Fredward K. Muntz of Corydon, was arrested on felony charges of possession of meth, maintaining a common nuisance and misdemeanor charges of possession of a Schedule IV controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.

His passenger, 46-year-old Rhonda Crone of New Albany, on a felony charge of possession of meth and a misdemeanor charge of visiting a common nuisance, possession of a Schedule IV controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of marijuana.
