They say the residents agreed to a search of the apartment, and Starke County Sheriff’s Department K9 Terror indicated narcotics were present. The officers reportedly found a one-pot meth lab, methamphetamine, marijuana, heroin, drug precursors and paraphernalia.
Jeffery Dickson and Tiffany Frazier were arrested for dealing in and possession of methamphetamine, possession of precursors, paraphernalia and marijuana and maintaining a common nuisance. Frazier faces additional charges after staff at the Starke County Jail reportedly found methamphetamine and heroin on her during the booking process. That discovery led to charges of trafficking with an inmate, possession of a narcotic drug and possession of methamphetamine.
