One man was arrested on drug charges while another man was cited for drug possession after a Jennings County Sheriff's deputy stopped to check on the men who were working on their vehicle on North State Street near Poplar in North Vernon Sunday.
Maj. Jerry Shepherd, with the Jennings County Sheriff's Office, says the vehicle's owner, 39-year-old Robert Best of North Vernon, was charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana over 30 grams and dealing in marijuana. He was taken and booked into the Jennings County Jail. The second man, 35-year-old James Hatter, was cited for possession of marijuana and released.
Shepherd says a deputy found over 4 ounces of marijuana inside Best's vehicle and methamphetamine in plastic bags. Both men were detained as officers completed the investigation.
