Theresa M. Burns, 46, Columbus, on preliminary charges of felony dealing in methamphetamine, felony possession of methamphetamine, felony possession of a hypodermic needle and misdemeanor dealing in marijuana.
Indiana State Senior Trooper Mark LaMaster from the Sellersburg Post’s All Crimes Policing Squad on Tuesday saw a white Ford pickup truck northbound near the 41 mile marker with possible false or fictitious plates and also noticed they were following other vehicles too closely.
After stopping the truck, LaMaster requested assistance from Master Trooper Nathan Abbott and K-9 Teague, who alerted troopers about drugs possibly being in the vehicle, said Sgt. Carey Huls, ISP spokesman.
A search revealed about one-and-a-quarter pounds of suspected methamphetamine hidden underneath the truck, a small amount of marijuana, a syringe and more than $4,500 in cash, Huls said.
Nasby and Burns were being held without bond at the Jackson County Jail, jail officials said.
