PRESS RELEASE

May 9, 2018

 

On Monday, May 7th, 2018 the Jasper County Sheriffs’ Narcotics Detective along with Rensselaer Police Department and Newton County Drug Task Force, executed a search warrant for alleged narcotics dealing at the Sunset Inn Motel on US 24, near Remington Indiana.

The search warrant was obtained through a joint investigation and by surveillance of a suspect who was residing in room number 125 of the motel.  Through this ongoing investigation, the suspect was identified as Jason Angle, age 29.  From the information that had been collected against Mr. Angle it was believed that he was possessing methamphetamine along with possible distribution of that narcotic.

Officers were able to detain Mr. Angle away from the room location prior to the search warrant execution for safety concerns of other motel patrons. 

At approximately 3:38 PM, the search warrant was served and during the room search numerous drug paraphernalia items were located along with methamphetamine, Psilocybin mushrooms (also known as psychedelic mushrooms).  A large sum of US currency was also located within the area of the narcotics. 

Investigation continues by the multiple agency task force.  Angle was being held in the Jasper Law Enforcement and Detention Center on the charges of: Possession with the Intent to Deal Methamphetamine – a Level 3 Felony,  Possession of Methamphetamine – a Level 5 Felony, Possession of Controlled Substance – an A Misdemeanor and Possession of Paraphernalia with Prior Conviction – an A Misdemeanor.

 

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