Henry County meth operation taken down

RUSHVILLE — An ongoing investigation into illegal drug use in Henry and surrounding counties, more specifically the manufacturing of the highly addictive drug methamphetamine, led to troopers from the Indiana State Police and the Meth Suppression Unit from the Pendleton ISP Post serving a warrant on a Henry County residence Monday evening in the 700 block of West 24th Street.

The warrant was served around 8:30 p.m. and resulted in the arrest of New castle resident Candace Dixon, 39.

Dixon is charged with manufacturing methamphetamine (class “B” felony), possession of methamphetamine (class “D” felony), possession of marijuana (class “A” misdemeanor) possession of drug paraphernalia (class “B” misdemeanor) and maintaining a common nuisance (class “D” felony).

Bond information was not given.

Assisting in the investigation were the Henry County Prosecutor’s Office, the New Castle Police Department and the Henry County Drug Task Force.

Law enforcement officers are asking for citizens’ help in curbing illegal drug activity in their neighborhoods.

Methamphetamine is a dangerous and addictive drug and during the manufacturing process nearby residents may smell a strong ammonia or solvent odor similar to that found in auto body shops.

Other signs of illegal drug activity for residents to look for include rubber tubing, ether or camp fuel cans, plastic bottles, pseudoephedrine packages (commonly known as ‘Sudafed’ or a variety of generic brands), lithium battery casings and propane tanks with a blue or green discoloration around the valve.

If any of these items are found, citizens are asked to contact local or county law enforcement personnel.

The RPD can be contacted at (765) 932-3907, the RCSD at (765) 932-2931 or the ISP at 1 (800) 527-4752.
