Scottsburg Fast Food Restaurant Closed After Worker Admitted Using Heroin On The Job

A Scottsburg fast food restaurant employee was charged with possessing heroin while at work and her alleged cohort was arrested on a similar possession charge last Wednesday, Apr. 10.
Charged as a result of the investigation were Linda Beth Smith, 32, of Scottsburg, an employee of Long John Silvers restaurant, and James Smith, 28, of Depauw.
According to Scott County Sheriff Jerry Goodin, his department had received several tips of believed illegal drug activity taking place at Long John Silver’s restaurant located at SR 56 & Lake Road in Scottsburg.
Deputies Joe Baker, Darin Marshall and Reserve Deputy Phil Thomas were assigned to begin surveillance on the restaurant.
According to the probable cause affidavit, the deputies observed a dark Nissan Maxima pull behind the restaurant. A food establishment employee, Linda Smith, left the building and got inside the vehicle for a few minute before returning to the restaurant, the document reported.
Deputies then watched as the vehicle drove through the adjacent Wal-Mart parking lot and exit onto SR 56 westbound without using a turn signal.
After conducting a traffic stop for the offense, the driver, James D. Smith was determined to driving with a suspended license.
Deputies advised Smith that because of his suspension his car would be impounded and towed after they searched the vehicle.
When asked if there was anything illegal in the vehicle Smith replied that “he believed some dope could possibly be between the seats” according to the probable cause. When deputies searched the vehicle they located a small corner shaped plastic baggie containing what tested positive to be heroin.
According to the court document, Smith told officers that Linda Smith had called him earlier asking him to “stop by Long John Silvers to buy dope.” He agreed and went to purchase about a gram of heroin.
After the traffic stop, deputies returned to the restaurant to speak with Linda Smith, who may be a cousin of James Smith, authorities believe.
After Deputy Baker informed Smith of his observations, she admitted buying $20 of heroin from James Smith during the earlier restaurant meeting. When asked of the whereabouts of the drug she purchased, she told officers she had used it.
When Smith was booked into Scott County Jail, during a routine search, authorities found on her a plastic bag containing brown residue believed to be heroin, a piece of folded paper with a crystal like substance believed to be methamphetamine, a metal spoon with a brown substance and a syringe, according to the court document.
Linda Smith, 32, of Scottsburg faces charges of possessing a controlled substance, possession of a syringe, false informing, trafficking with an inmate, maintaining a common nuisance and possession of paraphernalia.
James Smith, 28, of Depauw was charged with possession of a controlled substance, maintaining a common nuisance and driving while suspended.
Long John Silver’s management officials voluntarily closed the restaurant after the incident and began intense cleaning activity, according to Tim Brunner Scott County Health Department food inspector. The restaurant successfully passed an inspection by the Scott County Health Department Friday morning and was allowed to re-open.

Two Dead After Shooting In Scottsburg Trailer Park

One man was shot and killed and another died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound around midnight Saturday night, April 13 in Scott County.
At 11:55 p.m. Scottsburg City Police were sent to Lot 21 at Scott Villa Mobile Home Trailer Park at 815 West Lake Road south of Scottsburg after receiving a telephone call from neighbors about a disturbance with shots fired with a possible gunshot victim, according to Indiana State Police Sgt. Carey Huls.
Then just before midnight, a second call was placed to Scott County authorities. The caller, Michael Brandon Jones, 29, advised he was the home-owner at Lot 21 and that he had just shot a man who he stated was trying to gain entry into his residence, police said.
The Scottsburg Police Department requested assistance from the Indiana State Police in the investigation.
Multiple ISP units arrived to assist and were informed by Scottsburg Police that an unidentified male who knocked on the door of the residence had been shot by the homeowner and was dead, according to Huls.
The deceased man, who was shot at the entrance to the residence, was identified as Larry D. Marlowe, 34, of Allen Street in Scottsburg, according to the ISP report.
According to Scottsburg authorities, Jones had then locked himself in the trailer and was not responding to attempts to contact him. Witnesses reported hearing a single gunshot from within the trailer after Jones had locked himself inside.
Troopers surrounded the home and evacuated nearby residents while awaiting the Indiana State Police Emergency Response (ERT) Team, Huls said.
After obtaining a search warrant, officers entered the trailer and found Michael Jones dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, Huls reported.
No motive for the shooting was available as of this newspaper deadline. The investigation is ongoing, Huls said.

SCOTT COUNTY
Scott County Treasurer, Sheryl Jent, said Scott County taxpayers have several payment options:
1) In-person at the Treasurer’s office located on the east side of courthouse Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m..
2) Locked drop-box located wall of Treasurer’s office to avoid waiting in line.
3) Call 812-752-8414 to pay by phone; however, credit/debit card transaction fees apply.
4) Mail check along with payment coupon to: Scott Co. Treasurer, 1 E. McClain Avenue, Suite 140, Scottsburg, IN 47170. Non-sufficient funds will void tax payment. Mailed payments must have a USPS postmark on or before May 10, 2019. Receipt(s) can be mailed to taxpayer if self-addressed stamped envelope is enclosed with payment.
To ensure prompt posting of your tax payment, please detach and return the Spring payment coupon with your payment or write parcel number on check.
“Remember the statement you receive this month includes both Spring and Fall coupons; therefore, statements are not mailed again in the Fall,” said Jent. “Due to the increase of counterfeit currency, patience is asked while the staff inspects all bills when paying by cash.”
Some banks also accept tax payments and offer Saturday hours that the courthouse does not. They include:
•WesBanco in Scottsburg and Austin. The Austin branch does not have Saturday hours.
•New Washington State Bank in Scottsburg.
•Stock Yards Bank in Austin.
Tax bill must be presented to bank when paying.
The Treasurer said partial payments are accepted year round. But keep in mind any unpaid taxes will automatically receive penalty after May 10.
