Knox Couple Arrested Following Drug Investigation


A Knox man and woman are jailed on drug charges following an investigation by the Starke County Major Crimes Unit. Officers from the Knox Police Department and Starke County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at an Allen Drive residence in Knox on Thursday. They found illegal narcotics and chemicals used to make methamphetamine, according to the incident report.

The occupants, 23-year-old Austin Steger and 22-year-old Kaylene Steger, both of Knox, were arrested. They face charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, illegal drug lab, possession of a narcotic drug and maintaining a common nuisance.

A small child was in the home, so the Indiana Department of Child Services was notified. The Indiana State Police Clandestine Lab Team also assisted.
