Andersonville man arrested on drug charges

An ongoing drug investigation that began two years ago by the Franklin County Drug Taskforce led to the arrest of 52-year-old, Alvin Eden, of Andersonville, earlier this month.

According to Franklin County law enforcement personnel, the investigation into illegal drug activity began culminated when officers obtained search warrants for three locations, one in Franklin County and two in Rush County: 14027 Green Street , Rushville, 27084 U.S. 52, in Rush County and a commercial building located on U.S. 52 near Middle Street in Andersonville.

At one of the locations, officers located an inactive hydroponic marijuana growing operation. Hydroponic growing is described as a branch of agriculture in which plants are grown in a chemical solution enriched with nutrients instead of grown in soil. Earlier this year a similar growing operation was located in the Rush County at the former Carthage bowling alley. The June discovery in Rush County was deemed one of the largest (more than 300 plants) and most sophisticated of its type in Indiana and resulted in the arrest of a Greenfield couple.

Eden was taken into custody without incident and is charged with possession of more than 30 grams of marijuana. No bond information was indicated on the arrest report.

Assisting in the investigation was the Franklin County Health Department, Franklin County Area Plan and the Indiana Adult Protection agency.

Anyone with information of illegal drug activity or to report suspicious activity are asked to contact law enforcement personnel. The FC Sheriff Department can be contacted at (765) 647-0755, the Rush County Sherriff’s Department at (765) 932.2931 or the Rushville Police Department at (765) 932.3907.
