“Timothy Grubb is a methamphetamine trafficker who brings this poison into Lawrence County.  He delivered methamphetamine into our community, which is his home as well.  He should be sentenced to 10 years in prison, all to be served,” said Chief Deputy Prosecutor Bob Cline during closing at Timothy Grubb’s sentencing hearing.

Grubb was arrested in April after the Indiana State Police Drug Enforcement Section along with ISP Bloomington District Aggressive Criminal Enforcement Section was conducting an ongoing investigation regarding a methamphetamine dealing case.

A DES Detective saw Grubb drive away from a residence on 4th Street in Bedford. Officers knew Grubb did not have a driver’s license. He was stopped after pulling into a parking lot of a gas station on Lincoln Avenue.

They found an AR-15 rifle laying in the vehicle and Grubb had two handguns. Grubb also had approximately 2 ounces (60 grams) of meth, along with marijuana, THC liquid, pills, and numerous items of drug paraphernalia.

Grubb was arrested on charges of dealing meth over 10 grams, possession of meth 10 grams, possession of a handgun without a permit, possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
