Seymour police arrested a 35-year-old man Tuesday after conducting three separate controlled purchases of methamphetamine over the course of the past few months.

Adam Matthew Ball of Seymour faces three preliminary Level 5 felony charges of dealing methamphetamine following an investigation. He also faces a preliminary Level 6 felony charge of possession of methamphetamine.

The controlled purchases, which amounted to less than a gram each, were overseen by officers Adam Surface and Mike Henley.

Ball was arrested after Surface and Henley began searching for Ball around noon Tuesday in an area they believed he had been living.

When officers arrested him, they found less than a gram of methamphetamine in his pocket, Surface said.

Police continue to investigate the case following the purchases.

Ball was booked into the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown at 12:57 p.m. Tuesday and being held without bond pending his initial hearing.
