Two arrested on drug-related charges

A traffic stop Tuesday afternoon on Seymour’s south side led to the arrests of two people on drug-related charges, police report.

Derrick N. Broshears, 34, of Brownstown faces charges of dealing in methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine after the 2000 Honda passenger car he was driving on Sprenger Road was stopped for a traffic violation by Indiana State Police Trooper Tia Deaton.

During a search of the vehicle at about 2:30 p.m., troopers located approximately 50 grams of suspected crystal methamphetamine, according to a news release from Sgt. Stephen Wheeles.

Wheeles, the public information officer for the Versailles Post, said during the stop that Deaton became suspicious of criminal activity taking place and asked Trooper Randel Miller and K-9 Jinx to respond to assist.

Jinx alerted to the odor of illegal drugs coming from the vehicle, police reported.

Troopers then responded to a room being rented by Broshears at Motel 6 in Seymour and found April R. Williams, 38, of Crothersville in the room.

Troopers then obtained a search warrant for the room and found syringes, drug paraphernalia, a Legend Drug and additional evidence of dealing methamphetamine.

Williams was arrested on charges of possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Both Broshears and Williams were booked into the the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown and being held without bond pending their initial appearances in the Jackson Circuit Court.
