A Floyd County man was arrested at his home for dealing drugs and was in possession of over a pound of Meth, as well as Heroin. 

Indiana State Police Troopers and investigators served a search warrant on his New Albany residence on Thursday. 

Rudy Rodriquez, 30, New Albany was arrested without incident following a search and was charged with the following:

  1. Dealing in Methamphetamine – Level 2 Felony
  2. Possession of Methamphetamine – Level 3 Felony 
  3. Possession of Narcotic Drug – Level 5 Felony
  4. Possession of Firearm by Serious Violent Felon – Level 5 Felony 
  5. Possession of Syringe – Level 6 Felony 

Rodriquez was booked into the Floyd County Jail. 

Trooper Zachary Smith, a K9 officer with the Sellersburg Post All Crimes Policing (ACP) squad, began an investigation approximately two months ago after receiving reports of possible drug activity involving Rodriquez.

Trooper Smith worked alongside fellow ACP units and ISP Drug Enforcement Sections units, as well as officers from the Charlestown and New Albany Police Departments.

On Thursday, officers were granted a search warrant for Rodriquez’s residence.

As a result of the investigation and subsequent search, officers located over a pound of suspected methamphetamine in the home.

Officers also found over ten grams of suspected heroin along with other controlled substances, drug paraphernalia, and guns.
