Jackson County residents facing drug charges

Two Jackson County residents were arrested on drug related charges following a traffic stop and search warrant in Seymour on Tuesday.

The investigation began shortly after 2:30 pm when an Indiana State Police trooper stopped a car for a traffic violation on Sprenger Road. During the stop, the trooper began to suspect criminal activity was taking place.

Trooper Randel Miller and police dog Jinx responded to assist. Jinx alerted to the odor of illegal drugs coming from the vehicle. A search of the vehicle allegedly uncovered approximately 50 grams of suspected methamphetamine.

The driver of the vehicle, Derrick N. Broshears, 34, Brownstown, was arrested on preliminary charges of Dealing Methamphetamine and Possession of Methamphetamine.

Troopers then responded to a room at the Motel 6 in Seymour that was rented by Broshears. Inside the room, troopers found April R. Williams, 38, Crothersville. Troopers obtained a search warrant for the room and allegedly uncovered syringes, drug paraphernalia, a legend drug and additional evidence of Dealing Methamphetamine.

Williams was arrested on preliminary charges of Dealing Methamphetamine, Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of Syringe, Possession of a Legend Drug and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
