New Salisbury Man Arrested On Drug, Gun and False Informing Charges


Indiana Conservation Officers arrested a New Salisbury man this evening at Elk Creek Lake in Washington County on multiple charges; including possession of meth and carrying a gun without a license. He also gave police a fake name when asked. 

Stanley Flannery, 55, 11614 HWY 135 NEW SALISBURY, was charged with Possession of Methamphetamine, False Informing, Possession of Paraphernalia, and Carrying a Handgun without a License.   Shortly after 7:00 p.m. this evening, Indiana Conservation Officer Matt Pearcy was on patrol when he observed Flannery acting suspiciously near a secluded lake. 

When asked for identification, Flannery initially provided a false name. 
Flannery led Officer Pearcy to the woods to his makeshift campsite, where he continued acting very suspiciously. 

During a pat-down of Flannery, Officer Pearcy ultimately discovered a loaded handgun, suspected methamphetamine, and paraphernalia. 
Flannery was taken into custody, and it was discovered that he had multiple outstanding arrest warrants for drug dealing offenses. 

A handgun and drug paraphernalia recovered tonight.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Department assisted at the scene.
All charges are merely accusations and defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
