Yesterday evening, deputies with the Scott County Sheriff’s Office descended on two different locations in Scottsburg following up on drug activity tips.
The first arrest started with an investigation by Detective Jacklyn Shofner for allegations of Domestic Battery and Intimidation.
Her investigation led to the case being submitted to the Scott County Prosecutor’s Office where an arrest warrant for Domestic Battery and Intimidation was issued for David Zollman, 29, of Scottsburg.
When the warrant was issued, First Sergeant John Hartman and Deputy John Smith made contact with David Zollman at his residence in Scottsburg on West Lake Road and placed him under arrest for the outstanding arrest warrant.
Acting on neighbors’ tips about the residence deputies began investigating further.
David Zollman also received additional charges for Possession of Methamphetamine, Unlawful Possession of a Syringe, Possession of a Legend Drug, Possession of a Schedule I, II, III and/or IV Controlled Substance, Maintaining a Common Nuisance, and Possession of Paraphernalia.
A few hours later, First Sergeant John Hartman, Corporal Johnney Coomer, Detective Paul Clute, Deputies John Smith, Nate Love, and a detective with the Scottsburg City Police Department went to a local motel as a result of a complaint of alleged illegal drug use and activity.
Upon arrival, the room was searched which led to the arrest of two people on drug-related charges.
George Boyle, 38, of Scottsburg, was arrested for Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of Cocaine or a Schedule I or II Narcotic Drug At Least 5 Grams but Less Than 10 Grams, Unlawful Possession of a Syringe and Visiting a Common Nuisance.
Destiny Hodge, 20, of Crothersville, IN, was arrested for Possession of Methamphetamine, Unlawful Possession of a Syringe, Maintaining a Common Nuisance and Possession of Paraphernalia.
Deputies wanted to send a strong statement on the eve of Thanksgiving that drug-related crimes will be vigorously investigated when the tips come in.
Sheriff Goodin stated from quarantine that, “even though the pandemic has hit Scott County and the Thanksgiving Holidays are here, drug offenders need not think deputies are standing back. I continue to be humbled by the absolute commitment our deputies have to make Scott County a safer place.”
