On Tuesday, May 28, two Jackson County residents were arrested on drug-related charges following a traffic stop and search warrant in Seymour, Indiana.

The investigation began shortly after 2:30 pm when Trooper Tia Deaton stopped a 2000 Honda passenger car for a traffic violation on Sprenger Road in Seymour.  During the course of the traffic stop, Trp. Deaton became suspicious of criminal activity taking place.  Trp. Randel Miller and K-9 Jinx responded to assist.  Jinx alerted to the odor of illegal drugs coming from the vehicle.  During a search of the vehicle, troopers located approximately 50 grams of suspected crystal methamphetamine.  The driver of the vehicle, Derrick N. Broshears, age 34, Brownstown, Indiana was arrested on charges of Dealing Methamphetamine and Possession of Methamphetamine.

Troopers then responded to a room at the Motel 6 in Seymour, Indiana that was rented by Broshears.  Upon arriving at the room, troopers located April R. Williams, age 38, Crothersville, IN in the room.  Troopers obtained a search warrant for the room.  During a search, troopers located syringes, drug paraphernalia, a legend drug, and additional evidence of Dealing Methamphetamine.  Williams was arrested on charges of Dealing Methamphetamine, Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of Syringe, Possession of a Legend Drug, and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. 

Both Broshears and Williams were incarcerated in the Jackson County Jail pending their initial appearances in the Jackson County Circuit Court.

An arrest photo of Broshears was not available.  An arrest photo of April Williams may be obtained from the Jackson County Jail.
