On Saturday, October 6, 2018 at approximately 6:35 P.M. a Jasper County Sheriff’s Deputy conducted a traffic stop in the area of US 231 and County Road 1600 North on a vehicle with an equipment violation.   A check on the operator and passenger in the 1998 Chevy truck revealed the passenger to have two outstanding arrest warrants. 

 

The passenger identified as David J. Allen, age 29 of Cedar Lake, Indiana was removed from the vehicle and taken into custody.  While securing Mr. Allen, the Deputy observed drug paraphernalia in plain view on the front seat area and at this time instructed the driver to exit the vehicle as well. 

 

The driver was identified as Dale E. Wilson, age 44 of Demotte, Indiana who was found to not have a valid Indiana operator’s license at the time of the traffic stop.  The Deputy went on to conduct a vehicle inventory as the Chevy vehicle was going to be towed.  It was during this inventory that over twelve hypodermic needles were located inside the passenger’s compartment along with a white crystal substance which field tested positive for methamphetamine and a second container with a powder substance which tested positive for heroin.  Also discovered were clear plastic baggies, a scale, and other drug paraphernalia that is commonly associated with dealing narcotics. 

 

Dale E. Wilson was taken into custody and charged with: Dealing Methamphetamine, Level 4 Felony, Dealing in a Narcotic Drug, Level 5 Felony, Possession of Methamphetamine, Level 6 Felony and Possession of Hypodermic Syringe, Level 6 Felony.  He is currently being held on a $30,000.00 Surety or $3,000.00 cash bond at the Jasper County Law Enforcement Detention Center.

 

David J. Allen was taken into custody and charged with: Dealing Methamphetamine, Level 4 Felony, Possession of Methamphetamine, Level 6 Felony, Possession of Narcotic Drug, Level 6 Felony, and a Possession of Hypodermic Syringe, Level 6 Felony.  He is currently being held on a$30,000.00 Surety or $3,000 cash bond at the Jasper County Law Enforcement Detention Center.

 

Sheriff Risner stated as we see far too frequently, these two individuals were driving an unsafe motor vehicle transporting narcotics and opened hypodermic syringes that place the citizens of Jasper County and the State of Indiana in jeopardy on a daily basis.  Great work was accomplished by a Deputy who was vigilant and alert to the dangers that they face daily as well. 

 

 

 

ALL SUSPECTS ARE CONSIDERED INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILITY IN A COURT OF LAW.
