Salem Man Charged With Dealing Meth

A non-working license plate light resulted in a Salem man going to jail for dealing methamphetamine last Friday night.
According to Indiana State Police Sgt. Carey Huls, Troopers Kyle Taylor was on traffic patrol in Scott County when around 11:30 p.m., he observed a black Chevrolet Silverado with no light illuminating its license plate on State Road 56 near I-65 in Scottsburg.
After checking the vehicles’ license plate the officer was told that the plate returned to a different vehicle, prompting Trooper Taylor to conduct a traffic stop, Huls reported.
The driver of the vehicle was identified as Shane Ooley, 48, of Salem who was found to be wanted on a Clark County warrant on drug charges.
In processing Ooley and the vehicle at the scene, Trooper Taylor found Ooley to be in possession of nearly 3 ounces of methamphetamine as well as prescription pills.
Ooley was incarcerated in Scott County Jail facing charges of dealing in methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of controlled substance, possession of legend drug, possession of drug paraphernalia, maintaining common nuisance, as well as drug charges in Clark County.
