Three Arrests Made in Large Methamphetamine Seizure near Indianapolis Airport

Mocobizscene-  Indiana State Police have seized a staggering 115 pounds of methamphetamine near the Indianapolis International Airport. The police have charged three women in connection with the seizure.

“What happens next is the courts will decide which will handle the charges,” explained Indiana State Police Sgt. John Perrine. “It could either be the local court here in Marion County, or it could be escalated to federal court.”

At 8 a.m. on December 19, police made a traffic stop after noticing an SUV on Bridgeport Road near U.S. 40, close to the airport, failing to come to a complete stop at a stop sign.

The driver, Latasha Weatherspoon, is 36 years old, while the two passengers, Marlene Richardson (31) and Christina Enriquez (30), accompany her. A drug-sniffing dog successfully detected narcotics hidden in the backseat of the SUV. The women informed the police that they were on their way to Louisville to attend a funeral. Upon inspection of the vehicle, troopers discovered the drugs concealed in bags and suitcases.

According to Perrine, methamphetamine is a highly hazardous substance that has the potential to be fatal for its users. He emphasized the commitment of specialized squads in Indiana who work tirelessly to intercept narcotics on a daily basis. Perrine made it clear that the fight against methamphetamine is ongoing and will continue until it is no longer a concern.

According to Perrine, the Indiana State Police have transferred the case to the DEA due to the significant quantity of seized drugs. There is a possibility that the case will be brought before a federal court. Three individuals have been arrested following a significant methamphetamine bust near the Indianapolis Airport.
