Indianapolis woman arrested on drug charges during traffic stop


An Indianapolis woman was arrested Monday on felony and misdemeanor drug charges during a traffic stop in the area of Sprenger Road and Marley Lane in Seymour.

Mary K. Templin, 60, was arrested for possession of methamphetamine, a Level 4 felony; possession of marijuana, a Class B misdemeanor; possession of paraphernalia, a Class C misdemeanor; and failure to prove financial responsibility having a prior unrelated conviction or judgment, a Class C misdemeanor, according to a news release from Seymour Police Department Lt. C.J. Foster.

On Monday, an interdiction officer with SPD stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation. When the officer approached Templin, the officer noticed the odor of burning marijuana coming from the vehicle.

During the conversation with Templin, the officer determined she was not able to prove financial responsibility for the vehicle she was operating.

Templin was searched as an incident to arrest. During the search, the officer located a small plastic bag that contained a white substance on Templin, Foster said.

The substance was field tested and presumptive positive result for methamphetamine was obtained. The officer also conducted a search of the vehicle and located a plastic bag that contained a plantlike substance and other drug paraphernalia, Foster said.

Templin was then arrested and taken to the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown.
