Police arrest 5, alleging roles in meth ring

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. – State police said investigators have charged five people, alleging they played roles in a western Indiana methamphetamine distribution ring.

Police said a 35-year-old Terre Haute man was obtaining eight pounds of crystal meth a month from sources in Atlanta that was then distributed to dealers in Vigo County.

State police Sgt. Joe Watts said the Terre Haute group had distributed at least 50 pounds of meth with an estimated street value of $1.1 million during the last eight months.

Watts said raids and a traffic stop on Saturday resulted in the seizures of more than seven pounds of meth, six pounds of suspected marijuana, $12,000 in cash and 12 guns.

The four men and one woman arrested were jailed on preliminary felony charges of methamphetamine dealing.
