During the mid-morning hours of November 7th, a Sullivan County highway employee discovered a large amount of trash at the intersection of county roads 500 North and 500 East. The employee believed a portion of the trash was related to methamphetamine production, so he contacted the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office who in turn requested assistance from the Indiana State Police.
ISP Trooper Brent Robinson began his investigation with the assistance of Sullivan County Sheriff’s Deputy Bill Snead. At the trash site, the officers discovered (8) used one pot meth labs (not active), (11) former chemical reaction vessels, and many precursors associated with the production of meth labs. Also at the scene was paper correspondence which led Trooper Robinson to obtain a search warrant in Greene County.
Yesterday at 4:40p.m., Troopers executed a search warrant at the 509 South Washington Street, the Jasonville home of Jamie and Peggy Noble-Poe. During the search, troopers located one active meth lab, various items of previous meth labs, approximately one-half gram of methamphetamine and a large amount of trash indicating a substantial amount of methamphetamine was most likely produced in recent days. Also in the residence was their 11-year-old daughter. The Poes were taken into custody and the daughter was put in custody of Child Protective Services.
