(MARTINSVILLE) – Wednesday afternoon while conducting a Dealing Methamphetamine Investigation, Indiana State Police Drug Enforcement Section detectives were able to locate 39-year-old Shandy Freeman, of Martinsville, driving a pickup truck westbound on Industrial Drive toward State Road 37.
Detectives had information that Freeman’s Indiana Driver’s License had been suspended.
The truck then turned south onto State Road 37 and continued onto Ohio St where a traffic stop was conducted by Morgan County Sheriff’s Deputy Tim Coryell.
Freeman was informed by officers that his license was suspended and while speaking with DES Detectives and Deputy Coryell, Martinsville Police Officer Dustin Tarr and his K9 partner “Edo” arrived at the scene to assist. Officer Tarr’s K9 then conducted a free air sniff of the vehicle, resulting in Tarr telling officers his K9 had given a positive alert to the presence of controlled substances.
A plastic bag was located containing two digital scales, three plastic bags with plant material and one silver tin that contained a crystal substance, consistent with methamphetamine.
That 116 grams crystal substance field tested positive for the presence of meth.
Freeman was arrested and transported to the Morgan County Jail on charges of dealing meth, possession of meth, maintaining a common nuisance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
