Police searching for two people wanted on Jackson Circuit Court warrants uncovered drug activity Thursday at a hotel on Seymour’s east side.

Brian Christopher Willman, 37, of Seymour and Lindsey Renee Grigsby, 34, of Anderson initially were being sought by police on the warrants — Willman for failing to appear for sentencing on three Level 2 counts of dealing in a controlled substance and Grigsby for possession of methamphetamine, a Level 6 felony.

On Thursday, officers with the Seymour Police Department and Jackson County Sheriff’s Department received information the pair were staying at Holiday Inn Express, according to a news release from Lt. C.J. Foster with SPD.

After obtaining a Jackson Superior Court II search warrant for documents, police learned a person with connections to Willman and Grigsby had obtained a room at the hotel, Foster said.

Seymour K-9 Nash then alerted to the presence of a narcotic drug at an entry point to that room. At that point, police started the process of obtaining a search warrant, Foster said.

At about the same time, investigators with the city and county spotted Willman and Grigsby behind the hotel and arrested the pair, he said.

Police then obtained a warrant to search the room Willman and Grigsby had been staying in. During a search of that room, investigators found methamphetamine, psilocybin (mushrooms), a stolen handgun, drug paraphernalia and items linking Willman and Grigsby to the room, Foster said.

Willman now faces a new preliminary Level 2 felony charge of dealing in a controlled substance; a Level 3 felony charge of dealing methamphetamine with a firearm; Level 6 felony charges of visiting/maintaining a common nuisance and violation of the Legend Drug Act; and a Class A misdemeanor charge of possession of paraphernalia.

Grigsby also faces new preliminary Level 6 felony charges of possession of a hypodermic syringe or needle, possession of methamphetamine and maintaining a common nuisance.

Both were booked into the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown on Thursday night and were being held without bond Friday pending their initial court appearances.
