Federal grand jury indicts 26 in meth trafficking operation


Follow The Republic:


 U.S. Attorney Joseph H. Hogsett announced today that a federal grand jury has indicted 26 defendants in a multi-layered drug trafficking operation that stretched from the Mars Hill section of Indianapolis to North Vernon and other communities in central Indiana.

The investigation initially focused on a methamphetamine trafficking cell operating in County Squire Lakes trailer park in North Vernon.  As the FBI began to investigate the leaders of this methamphetamine trafficking cell, they identified a larger methamphetamine trafficking network with sources of supply in the Mars Hill section of Indianapolis.  During the FBI’s investigation, they seized approximately 15 pounds of methamphetamine, with a wholesale value of approximately $250,000, 22 firearms, and $20,000 in cash.

The FBI also discovered that one of the members of the methamphetamine trafficking cell in the Country Squire Lakes trailer park delivered drugs that resulted in the death of another individual.  On April 5, 2014, Jeremy Ray Jackson delivered methamphetamine to his wife, Jessie Jackson, who consumed the methamphetamine and died of a drug overdose.
