Two Scottsburg residents were charged with a variety of drug offenses early last week.
According to Indiana State Police Sgt. Jerry Goodin, around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 3, Trooper Matt Busick was patrolling in rural Scott County when he saw a car pull into a residence on Lover’s Lane near Lexington. The driver and passenger were acting suspicious which prompted Busick to pull into the same driveway to investigate further.
Busick questioned the vehicle occupants who said they stopped at the residence to ask to use a phone. “Even though there were five cell phones in the car,” said Busick. Examining the car’s interior Busick located about an ounce of methamphetamine and about a half ounce of heroin along with 10 prescription pills.
The driver of the vehicle, Daniel Robinson, 30, of Scottsburg, who was wanted on an Indiana Department of Correction Parole Warrant, was charged with possession of heroin, possession of methamphetamine, and possession of a controlled substance.
The front seat passenger, Sarah Kahl, 25, of Scottsburg, was charged with possession of heroin, possession of methamphetamine and possession of a controlled substance.
The pair was incarcerated in Scott County Jail.
