“It comes as a surprise to some, I think, that drug dealers are found not just in big cities and Hollywood movies – they are found here in Lawrence County, as well,” said Lawrence County Deputy Prosecutor Jeremy Weddle, who handled the case on behalf of the State of Indiana. “I can’t stress enough what we say repeatedly – if you see something, say something. Drugs in our community make it dangerous for all of us who live here, so we must remain vigilant through good police work and consistent prosecution to get drugs off of our streets.”
