Seymour residents arrested on drug-related charges


Two Seymour residents face various drug-related charges tied to a home visit conducted Monday by an officer with the Jackson Jennings Community Corrections program.

That visit by Officer J.D. Woods led to the arrests of Daniel James Hoene, 39, and Freedom Dawn Stidham, 39, on charges of dealing in methamphetamine (a Level 2 felony), possession of methamphetamine possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia and visiting/maintaining a common nuisance.

Stidham also faces a charge of possession of a controlled substance stemming from that visit, which also involved Officer Jeff Walters and Detective Ben Rudolph with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department.

The pair were arrested after a search of Hoene’s home uncovered about 36 grams of methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia, according to a news release from the sheriff’s department.

On Thursday, both Hoene and Stidham each were arrested on an additional charge of dealing in methamphetamine, a Level 2 felony, related to a separate investigation, police said.
