Two arrested for dealing and possession of a counterfeit controlled substance

Two Seymour residents were arrested on at least six drug-related charges during a raid conducted Friday afternoon at an apartment complex on the city’s east side.

Hayden Matthew Kinsler, 21, and Allie Mae Wingler, 20, both face preliminary charges of dealing in a controlled substance, dealing marijuana, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, visiting/maintaining a common nuisance and possession of paraphernalia.

According to a news release from Jackson County Sheriff Rick Meyer, the sheriff’s department and Seymour Police Department’s joint narcotics unit recently initiated an investigation after a traffic stop that led to information of suspected narcotics activity involving individuals living at Maple Springs Apartments on South Jackson Park Drive.

On Friday, Jackson County Sheriff’s Department Officer Justin Amos obtained a search warrant signed by Jackson Superior Court II Judge Bruce MacTavish for Apartment 312 at Maple Springs.

During a search of that apartment, Meyer said investigators seized numerous items of evidence, including approximately 15 “M30” counterfeit tablets (suspected of containing fentanyl), suspected marijuana, digital scales, packaging material, approximately $2,900 in U.S. currency and numerous items of other drug paraphernalia.

Additionally, investigators located and seized one loaded handgun and one loaded shotgun from within the apartment.

Kinsler and Wingler were booked into the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown and remained there Tuesday morning without bond.
