A Plymouth man will be spending ten years in the Indiana Department of Corrections after pleading guilty in a plea agreement with the state to a charge of Dealing in Methamphetamine, a Class B felony.
Nathaniel White, 26, admitted in open court to dealing in methamphetamine on several occasions out of a residence on West Washington Street in Plymouth.
The case began with a warrant arrest for another individual at that residence and White and another suspect were spotted coming around the house and got into a pickup truck. White got behind the steering wheel and asked police if they could leave the area and was told he could leave as the warrant was for another individual. Before they could leave, the officer spotted marijuana in plain view and Plymouth K9 Jax was deployed where he indicated the presence of drugs on the driver’s seat. A pat-down search on White did not uncover any illegal substances.
Meanwhile, a search of the residence where the arrest warrant was served revealed numerous items needed to produce methamphetamine. All of the suspects in the home were arrested, including White. A routine body check was conducted at the Marshall County Jail where numerous methamphetamine related items were found hidden in White’s posterior.
Police learned that meth was manufactured at that location and sales were occurring at the location four to five times a day. White was subsequently charged with Dealing in Methamphetamine and was sentenced Wednesday on that charge.
