The Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg just completed a six month assessment on the initiated crackdown of drug dealers and drug related crimes and problems in our district, which includes, Clark, Floyd, Harrison, Scott and Washington Counties.

The assessment includes only the numbers from the “All Crimes Policing Team” at the Sellersburg Post which consists of eight troopers and a sergeant. All the other drug related arrests and drug seizures from regular road troopers and detectives are not included.

During the six month period which ended in January, the All Crimes Policing Troopers from the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg have arrested 164 persons for drug related crimes and those persons have been charged with 508 different criminal charges.

During these arrests troopers have seized nearly one pound and four ounces of Methamphetamine, 20 grams of Heroin, 253 pounds of Marijuana, 13.8 grams of Cocaine and 133 different types of prescription pills. These seizures amount to a staggering $218,380.00 approximate street value.

We are releasing these numbers for two reasons. One, to let the drug dealer know to stop business or leave town and secondly, to let the public know that the tips we are receiving from them are a tremendous help in our fight against illegal drug trafficking.

As we continue to fight the drug war, we need the public’s help. Please contact the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg with your drug tips. The number is 812-246-5424 and in Indiana only at 1-800-872-6743. You can also send tips via Facebook to Sgt. Jerry Goodin Indiana State Police Sellersburg. All tips can remain anonymous.
