Five arrested in major drug bust

$5,000 worth of cocaine found during raid

July 09, 2008
Acting on an anonymous tip, the Crawford County Sheriff's Department arrested five adults on the early morning of July 2 after drugs were found at a residence on Richardson Lane near Milltown.

The bust was executed after sheriff's deputies received information earlier that evening that drugs were being sold at the residence. Upon obtaining a search warrant, Sheriff Tim Wilkerson and his deputies entered the house two minutes after midnight.

In the house, they found five adults and four juveniles between the ages of 10 and 17. One juvenile was a guest spending the night. The other three lived there.

After securing the adults, a search was conducted that uncovered one-half pound of cocaine, 20 grams of marijuana and four bottles containing around 400 pills of the prescription drugs Alprazolam and Adderall, Wilkerson said. Cash was also found stored with the drugs, Wilkerson said. The street value of the cocaine was estimated at $5,000.

Wilkerson called in all but two of his deputies for safety during the search. Deputy Jeff Howell was the lead investigator, with deputies Conrad Bishop, Andy Beals and Jared Conrad assisting. Indiana State Police Trooper Brock Werne was also present.

Also called to the scene was the Department of Family and Children, as well as Probation Officer Jim Grizzel.

"Everything went smooth," Wilkerson said.

The five adults were quickly ushered to jail after the search was finished.

Those arrested included Leroy Weyrauch, of Milltown, 25, charged with visiting a common nuisance; Bonscott Webster, of Marengo, 20, charged with visiting a common nuisance and having a warrant for driving while suspended; Kallen Lowe, of Milltown, 19, charged with visiting a common nuisance and having a warrant for failure to appear in court; Clinton Grant, of Milltown, 29, charged with maintaining a common nuisance, neglect of dependents and the possession of and dealing of cocaine; and Marcie Grant, of Milltown, 30, charged with maintaining a common nuisance, neglect of dependents and the possession of and dealing of cocaine.

Wilkerson offered advice to parents, considering one of the juveniles was a guest at the home.

"People should get to know the families of their children's friends before allowing them to spend the night," he said. " I'm guilty of it, too, (guilty of) not having information on the family before allowing my daughter to spend the night.

"There may be loaded weapons in the house or drugs or even a child predator," Wilkerson continued. "Get to know the parents; don't just drop off your child and assume everything is OK. The place may look good, but you never know what's behind closed doors."

    Crawford County Drugs:

    I don't even know where to start on the subject of drugs in Crawford County. People from all around Southern Indiana know how bad the drugs are there, it is flat out embarassing to tell someone that is where you are from. I haven't met a person yet that I tell I'm from Crawford County and thier eyes widen followed by a comment of how bad the drugs are there. I moved from there the first oppurtunity I had, its completely ridiculous. The cops down there need to … start cracking down on the drug addicts. I am very happy to see that these people are in jail, I hope they do enough time to make them realize how disgusting it is to use and distribute drugs. I have alot more to say about this but I'm going to leave it at this so that this gets published on the feedback.

    They people who need to be "investigated" are doctors. Those prescription drugs came from doctors.... In my opinion, they are even more dangerous than street drugs. I hope the cops in Crawford think to investigate md's and the growing problem of "medicating" America. It is funny how they can get away dealing drugs, but your average Joe cannot.....

    There was (allegedly) $5000.00 worth of cocain there as well, did that come from the doctor too?? Its ashame they can't send every drug user to prison on the first offence for a minimum of five years. The world would be a better place.
