JACKSON COUNTY, Ind.–A five-month investigation culminated in the arrest of a Medora man on drug charges last week. The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office told Local News Digital this weekend that the undercover operation found Robert England, 64, to be in possession of methamphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance, paraphernalia, and a firearm when he was apprehended.
After he was taken into custody, a search warrant was obtained for England’s residence, which allegedly yielded an additional 95 grams of meth and $8,770 in cash. In the suspect’s garage, officers say they found a marijuana-growing operation, along with already-harvested marijuana.
England was arrested, transported to the Jackson County Jail, and charged with two counts of dealing methamphetamine, maintaining a common nuisance, possession of marijuana, and possession of paraphernalia. According to the sheriff’s department, he could face 10 to 30 years in prison.
