On April 9, Indiana State Trooper Brett Walters and Detective Scott Stewart of the Indiana State Police were investigating Walton, a convicted sex offender, for failing to properly register his current place of residence as required by law.

Walton, along with Hayes, and Campbell were residing at 3732 South Pixley Knob Road in eastern Washington County. Campbell’s five year old child was also staying at the residence.

Shortly after beginning their investigation, troopers from the Indiana State Police Meth Suppression Unit advised that they were also investigating Walton, as well as Hayes, for possible drug charges. Officers then combined their efforts as they continued their investigations.

After meeting with the suspect at his current place of residence, officers obtained a search warrant and conducted a search of the residence.

Officers from the Washington County Sheriff’s Department, Salem Police Department and Washington County Child Protective Services also assisted in the investigation.

During the search officers located methamphetamine, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia.

As a result of the investigation, all three subjects were arrested and transported to the Washington County Jail.

Due to the nature of the charges, the five year old child was placed with a family member by Washington County Child Protective Services.
