Seymour woman arrested on drug charges in late June


Staff Reports

A Seymour woman arrested in June for dealing in methamphetamine faces a Jan. 4, 2022, trial date in Jackson Circuit Court in Brownstown.

Crothersville police released information Friday about the arrest of 46-year-old Jill Celeste Pike on June 29 after a traffic stop at U.S. 31 near County Road 1150E.

Officer Jonathon Tabor said Pike’s arrest occurred after he attempted to stop a vehicle with no taillights being driven south on U.S. 31.

Tabor said he was driving north but turned around to catch the SUV and caught up with it as the driver, later identified as Pike, was entering southbound I-65 at the 36 mile marker.

Tabor activated his emergency lights but the driver failed to stop so he turned on his siren.

Pike continued driving south on the interstate swerving back and forth — in its lane, police said.

The driver then took the westbound exit at the 34 mile marker (the Austin exit) and came to a stop on State Road 256, Tabor said.

During the stop, Pike told Tabor she was wanted on a Jackson Circuit Court felony warrant.

While searching the SUV, police found four ounces of a white crystal substance Pike told later Tabor was methamphetamine, police said.

Police also found digital scales, several thousand dollars — mostly in $20s, a bag containing pills, later determined to be hydrocodone, a syringe and other items of paraphernalia including colored plastic bags.

A .38-caliber pistol, which was found to have been stolen out of Kentucky, also was located in the SUV, police said.

Pike was booked into jail at 1:43 a.m. June 30 and was still being held there on $20,005 bond on Friday.
