Goodin said ISP Trooper Matt Busick obtained information that Schneck was was headed to an address on Larry Lane in Scottsburg with a large amount of crystal methamphetamine.

Busick located Seth Schneck in a maroon 2002 Toyota passenger car stopped at a residence on Larry Lane in Scottsburg.

Later testing determined that there was 15.9 grams of meth in Schneck’s vehicle, Goodin said. Schneck was placed under arrest and transported to the Scott County Jail where he was incarcerated.

The approximate street value of the seized Crystal Methamphetamine is $1,600, Goodin said.
