At 12:05 p.m. Thursday, officers Aaron Wilkins and Justin Amos and Special Deputy Dave Hall attempted to serve an arrest warrant on Brandy Fields in the 7400 block of East State Road 250 in Seymour.

When the officer went to the door of the home, they were advised Brandy wasn’t home. They were allowed into the home to look for her and found drugs and paraphernalia in plain view.

A neighbor advised the officers that Brandy was parked across the street, and she ran on foot down the road after being seen by police.

Brandon Fields and Engelking, who were inside the residence during the search, were detained, and additional units were requested to come to the scene.

Amos and Wilkins went inside to Emanuel Lutheran Church in Dudleytown while searching for Brandy, where they located her hiding.

On his arrival to the scene, Officer Mitch Ray transported Brandy to the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown. He wrote a search warrant, which was granted, due to the drugs in plain view in her residence.

Detective J.L. McElfresh, Meyer, Officer Kevin Settle, Crothersville Police Chief Matt Browning, Crothersville Officer Levi Caudill and Crothersville Reserve Officer Jacob Sharp all arrived on scene and assisted with the search warrant.

Along with drugs and paraphernalia, new and used tools worth thousands of dollars were located. Another search warrant was prepared by police to find and confiscate the tools.

Drugs, paraphernalia, tools and a vehicle of Brandon’s were collected as evidence at the scene.

Detectives plan on going through the tools and determining where they came from to give them back to the proper owners.
