A lengthy joint investigation between the Indiana State Police DES and Indiana State Police Bloomington District A.C.E.S. culminated on Friday night, September 20th, with two Bedford residents being arrested for dealing methamphetamine.

The following arrests were made as a result of the investigation and traffic stop:

Tracy D. Sego

  1. Dealing Methamphetamine, Level 2 Felony
  2. Possession of Methamphetamine Over 28 Grams, Level 3 Felony




Kenzie D. Cox

  1. Dealing Methamphetamine, Level 2 Felony
  2. Possession of Methamphetamine Over 28 Grams, Level 3 Felony

Both Sego and Cox were incarcerated at the Lawrence County Jail.




Information was obtained that Sego, 52, of 17th Street in Bedford was allegedly dealing large quantities of methamphetamine in Lawrence County.

The investigation included traffic stops and interviews.

On Friday night, just after 9:15 pm, Indiana State Police Sgt. Greg Day and Trp. Chance Humphrey observed Sego driving a black, 2004 Dodge Dakota northbound on VFW Road, crossing State Road 60 East.

As the troopers caught up to the Dodge, Sgt. Day observed an item being thrown from the passenger side door into the woods. Sgt. Day and Trp. Humphrey conducted a traffic stop.

Sego was the driver and had a female passenger, Cox, 25 yrs old of Norton Lane Bedford.

Both Sego and Cox displayed indicators of criminal activity and both appeared extremely nervous.

Troopers requested the assistance of the Lawrence County Highway Interdiction Team (HIT) and a short time later, HIT team members, Mitchell Police Officer Shaun Cabral and Lawrence County Prosecutor Investigator Greg Hagen, arrived at the scene of the traffic stop. 

Officer Cabral deployed his canine partner, “Jack”, who gave a positive alert for the presence of narcotics in the truck.

Officers located a container with a small amount of methamphetamine along with a bottle of legend drug prescription pills, for which neither Sego, nor Cox had a prescription.

Sgt. Day went back to the area where he observed an item being thrown from the Dodge and located a make-up bag, which contained 107 grams of methamphetamine.

Under the Law, criminal charges are merely accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
