Friday, November 1, 2002

Indiana State Police were at a residence in Owensburg on Thursday at 10:30 a.m. with a search warrant after receiving information that drugs were present at the home of William and Tammy Harper.

The police did find drugs and paraphernalia in the home.

"Later that afternoon, Mr. Harper contacted us and wanted to know why we were at his house," said Indiana State Trooper Jackie Taylor.

Police told Harper they needed to talk to him and met him at his residence.

"He was arrested without incident," Taylor noted.

The search came about after police had received an anonymous tip about drug activity at the house.

William Harper, 42, was arrested and faces preliminary charges of dealing a schedule I substance (methcathinone), possession of precursors, maintaining a common nuisance, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia. He is being held in the Greene County Jail without bond.

Tammy Harper, 43, was arrested and faces preliminary charges of maintaining a common nuisance, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia. She bonded out of the Greene County Jail on $6,000 bond.
