State Police arrest Jackson County residents on drug charges

The Indiana State Police-Versailles District All Crimes Policing Team served a search warrant at a Medora home on Wednesday, resulting in the arrest of four Jackson County residents on drug related charges.

Authorities say the investigation began when troopers went to 67 E. Washington Street in Medora after receiving a tip that drug activity was taking place there. Upon arriving at the residence, troopers made contact with two people who live in the home, 37-year-old Shawn T. Bowman and 47-year-old Teresa J. Bowman, both of Medora. Troopers soon observed indicators of methamphetamine production and use on the property. Troopers then applied for and received a search warrant for the residence.

Upon searching the home, troopers located suspected methamphetamine, items associated with the production of methamphetamine, and drug paraphernalia. Two more people, 28-year-old Scylar E. Barker, of Medora, and 26-year-old Savannha D. Cobb, of Seymour, were also found in the home.

The Indiana State Police Clandestine Laboratory Team responded to dismantle the suspected methamphetamine production operation located there.

All four individuals were arrested on charges of dealing methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine. Additional charges are possible.
