NORTH VERNON, Ind. – The North Vernon Police Department searched a residence last week, on Hawthorne Drive in Country Squire Lakes, which resulted in three persons being arrested on narcotics charges. The event began when officers received a tip about drug activity at the address. The information was enough for investigators to obtain a search warrant for the address.

Officers located three people after entering the home. Richard Shepherd, 54, of North Vernon, Charlesa Connette, 57, of North Vernon, and Stacie Shelton, 40, of North Vernon, were taken into custody.

Inside the house, police allegedly found nearly three grams of methamphetamine, several methamphetamine smoking pipes, digital scales, a small amount of marijuana along with smoking pipes, several empty plastic baggies, and just over $120 cash.

Connette was charged with possession of methamphetamine. Shepherd was booked for visiting or maintaining a common nuisance and a warrant for theft. Shelton was arrested on the charge of visiting of maintaining a common nuisance.
