Officers arrested 54-year-old Richard Shepherd, 57-year-old Charlesa Connette, and 40-year-old Stacie Shelton, all of North Vernon.

Connette is being accused of possession of methamphetamine. Shepherd and Shelton were both arrested on a preliminary charge of visiting or maintaining a common nuisance. Shepherd was also wanted on a warrant for failing to appear in court on a charge of theft.
