Tennessee residents arrested on drug charges

Troopers with the Indiana State Police (ISP) have conducted investigations along I-65 near Seymour, leading to numerous drug-related arrests.

ISP-Versailles Post Spokesman, Sgt. Stephen Wheeles, says that at approximately 3:20 p.m. on Tuesday, Trooper Randel Miller conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle headed south on I-65 near the 51 mile marker. During the stop, Trp. Miller became suspicious of criminal activity taking place. Trp. Miller’s K-9, “Jinx” sniffed around the vehicle and was alerted to the odor of an illegal drug coming from the vehicle, said Wheeles. He adds that a search of the vehicle allegedly recovered heroin, controlled substances, syringes, and drug paraphernalia.

Wheeles says that the three Crossville, Tennessee residents inside the vehicle: 40-year-old Amy L. Boston, 32-year-old James L. Turner and 30-year-old Dexter W. Parsons, were all arrested. He says that the trio are facing charges including: Dealing Heroin, Possession of Heroin, Possession of a Hypodermic Syringe, Possession of a Legend Drug and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. ISP officials say that the three were all booked in the Jackson County Jail.
