In the early morning hours of January 19, 2017, Deputy Mark Holt stopped a 1999 GMC Jimmy after he saw it driving in the wrong lane of traffic and attempting to turn into several different yards off of County Road 600 South on the east side of Crothersville.
The driver, Victoria Autenrieb, and passengers Jeffrey D. Tatlock and Alicia M. Reeves, gave conflicting information about why they were in the area, and they appeared very nervous which made Holt suspicious.
Deputy Holt then saw some pills lying in the rear floor board of the vehicle behind the driver’s seat. Autenrieb told Deputy Holt she had recently taken some pain medication and that she did not have a prescription.
While taking inventory of the vehicle, Deputy Holt and Crothersville Police Officer J.L. McElfresh located several prescription tablets that were identified as Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, and Alprazdlam along with eight grams of Methamphetamine, Marijuana and some items used for measuring and distributing illegal drugs.
Victoria E. Autenrieb was arrested for Operating While Intoxicated/Drugs, Possession of Marijuana, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Violation of the Legend Drug Act. All are level 6 felonies
Jeffrey D. Tatlock faces charges of Dealing in Methamphetamine, a Level 3 Felony, Possession of
Methamphetamine, and Possession of Paraphernalia, both Level 6 Felonies.
Reeves was released at the scene and the investigation is ongoing.
