Police arrested 37-year-old Christopher Davis on charges of dealing in a counterfeit substance, and possession of meth, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia and the warrant out of Vigo County.

“Detectives had confirmed information that Davis had a valid outstanding arrest warrant out of Vigo County,” says Chief Deputy Aaron Shoults. “Once inside the residence detectives located a white powder residue and a scale that tested positive for meth. They also located a white crystal substance that was later determined to be a cutting agent for meth and used by meth dealers, which apparently was being sold as meth.”

Police also located marijuana and other drug paraphernalia.

Davis was arrested without incident and transported to the Lawrence County Jail.
