RUSHVILLE, Ind. — Seven people are facing charges after police raided a home Tuesday in Rusvhille after an ongoing investigation.
The home in the 900 block of North Arthur Street was searched Tuesday evening after officials executed a search warrant to seize narcotics.
Several drugs including methamphetamine, marijuana and syringes were located in the search. The following individuals were arrested in the bust and face the following charges:
- Sheila Love – possession of methamphetamine and maintaining a common nuisance
- Kelly Griffin – maintaining and visiting a common nuisance
- Tiffany Ingram – possession of methamphetamine and maintaining a common nuisance
- Loren Collins Jr, – possession of methamphetamine, maintaining and visiting a common nuisance
- Hillary Love – maintaining and visiting a common nuisance
- Taylor Atkins – Possession of meth, attempted obstruction of justice, resiting law enforcement, possession of marijuana and operating a motor vehicle without ever receiving
- Mark Hillebrand Jr. – maintaining and visiting a common nuisance and unlawful possession of a syringe
The home raided by officers is right next door to a preschool, according to Rusvhille Police Chief Craig Tucker.
“Curbing the drug trade in the City of Rushville is a priority to us, and it is particularly rewarding to shut down a residence like this that has truly been a public nuisance for some time,” Chief Tucker said in a press release.
“Participating in the drug trade in our community cannot be tolerated, and doing so 50 feet from the front door of a pre-school is absolutely intolerable.”
