Four people were arrested in Knox on Monday after police reportedly found drugs in a vehicle.
Knox City Police officers and officers from the Starke County Sheriff’s Department and Community Corrections were near the Super Value Inn when they saw a suspicious vehicle pull into the hotel parking lot. A woman got out of the car and, once she saw police, quickly got back in. Police stopped the vehicle and talked to the occupants.
One officer reported smelling burnt marijuana in the car and asked everyone to exit the vehicle. After the driver granted police permission to search the vehicle, police reportedly found methamphetamine and marijuana in the car, which were field tested with a positive result on both tests.
Officers also found an Indiana state-issued debit card that didn’t belong to any of the occupants. The card owner was contacted, and she told police that the card was stolen from her vehicle earlier in the day.
Angela McDougal, 35, of Knox, was arrested on preliminary charge of Theft, as well as possession charges pertaining to marijuana, methamphetamine, and paraphernalia. Anna Marie Geller, 41, of North Judson, was arrested on preliminary possession charges pertaining to methamphetamine, precursors and paraphernalia in addition to a Theft charge.
