G'town drug crackdown lands 5 in jail


February 27, 2013
The Georgetown Police Department recently arrested five individuals on drug-related charges as part of an ongoing drug crackdown during the past month.

Georgetown Police Chief Dennis Kunkel said officers acting on submitted information from the anonymous hotline arrested four people on Feb. 9 for the sale and possession of narcotics.

During a morning bust, Devon L. Carlisle, 19, of New Albany, and Cain G. Mathewson, 18, of Floyd Knobs, were arrested for the sale and illegal possession of prescription drugs.

Charges on both included felony possession of controlled substance, felony dealing controlled substance within 1,000 feet of school property, felony maintaining a common nuisance and misdemeanor possession of marijuana and paraphernalia.

Later that day, Georgetown officers arrested Izaak Douglas Patton Farnsley, 20, of Jeffersonville, and Kevin A. Schuler, 18, of Greenville, for the possession and sale of heroin. Both were charged with felony dealing controlled substance, felony possession of controlled substance and felony maintaining a common nuisance.

On Feb. 16, officers, again in the early morning, arrested Brandon M. Conard, 20, of New Albany, for the possession and sale of marijuana. Conard faces felony charges of possession and dealing marijuana and maintaining a common nuisance.

Kunkel said the five arrests netted more than two grams of heroin, a sizable amount of marijuana, pills, drug paraphernalia and more than $1,500 in cash.

All of the subjects were arrested after the Georgetown Police Department received drug information that led to an initial investigation and controlled buys.

Subjects were processed and held on bond at the Floyd County Jail.

The arrests are part of an ongoing initiative by the Georgetown Police Department and the Floyd County Sheriff's Department to crack down on drug use and sales.
