A large methamphetamine raid in Putnam County that results in eight arrests and the seizure of large amounts of the drug and money.

The Putnam County Sheriff's Department, along with the Clay and Vigo county sheriff's departments, seized nearly four pounds of methamphetamine and approximately a quarter million dollars as a result of the investigation that started earlier this year with a tip.

The drugs had a street value of over $100,000.

The raid happened at 9730 S. CR 675 West.

53-year-old Ronda Deal of Reelsville faces two counts of dealing in methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, conspiracy to deal methamphetamine, possession of stolen property and maintaining a common nuisance.

Additionally, her boyfriend, 55 year old James Dallas Wright, of Reelsville, was charged with two counts of dealing in methamphetamine, two counts of possession of methamphetamine, possession of stolen property and maintaining a common nuisance.

Others charged in the case include:

43 year old Luis Alberto Calderon, of Indianapolis: Dealing in methamphetamine over three grams and possession of methamphetamine over three grams; 

44 year old Eric Steven Girton, of Brazil: Possession of methamphetamine, possession of paraphernalia and driving with a suspended license; 

50 year old Everett Earl Minnick, Knightsville: Possession of methamphetamine, visiting a common nuisance and being a habitual traffic violator;
