Four people were arrested after an investigation by the Bartholomew County Joint Narcotics Enforcement Team into drug dealing at a house on Vine Street.

The investigation began Thursday when a sheriff’s deputy with a police dog searched a vehicle driven by 30-year-old Jami Hupp of Columbus. The dog alerted to the smell of narcotics inside the vehicle and Hupp was arrested on drug possession charges and a charge of neglect of a dependent for a child she had in the vehicle.

Those drugs were linked to the Vine Street home and a search warrant was issued.
