North Vernon police arrested two people on drug charges after they were called to help with a medical situation early Sunday morning.
Officers came to the home in the 100 block of Greensburg Street at about 3 a.m. Sunday and noticed drug paraphernalia out in plain view, according to police reports. After securing the home and obtaining a search warrant, officers allegedly discovered tied off plastic bags with a white crystal inside, bags containing prescription pills packaged for sale, as well as other drug sale supplies and paraphernalia, including syringes.
39-year-old Jacqueline Neal and 25-year-old Christopher Asbury, both of North Vernon, were both arrested on preliminary charges of possession of methamphetamine and possession of a syringe.
Police say the investigation is ongoing and more charges could be forthcoming.
