The conclusion came Friday morning when a state police SWAT team raided several rooms at two motels in Plymouth. Officers obtained warrants when their investigation revealed the alleged sale of cannabis and methamphetamine from the locations.
Following Friday morning’s raid, 28-year-old Alex Bradke of Plymouth is being charged with Dealing and Possession of Methamphetamine. He was arrested at the Economy Inn.
Four more individuals were taken into custody at the neighboring Red Rock Inn, including: 37-year-old Rhonda Harlan and 44-year-old Wayne Harlan – both of whom are being charged with Dealing and Possession of Methamphetamine and Maintaining a Common Nuisance. 29-year-old Jordan Kilgore was arrested for Dealing Cannabis, and 25-year-old Stephen Wood of North Judson was booked on an outstanding body attachment warrant out of St. Joseph County.
The five individuals arrested during the Friday morning raid only add to the four arrested earlier this week on similar dealing and possession charges.
26-year-old Travis Norman, 22-year-old Marcel Pulluaim, 29-year-old Brandon Davidson, and 21-year-old Dorsie Cooper were arrested by the Plymouth Police Department in those crackdowns.
According to information released by the Indiana State Police, Davidson is facing multiple charges, including False Informing, Possession of a Handgun without a Permit, Possession of Meth, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.
Davidson and Cooper had outstanding warrants through Starke County.
The Indiana State Police say they have stepped up their efforts to combat the meth and heroin epidemic in the area.
