Arrests made in multi-agency drug investigation
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. -- Several people were arrested Wednesday morning during a multi-agency drug investigation in Mishawaka and Osceola.
Around 7:30 a.m., three search warrants were served as a result of a drug investigation involving multiple agencies, according to the Indiana State Police.
Warrants were served at 55971 Clover Road and 221 S. Byrkit Street in Mishawaka, and 304 E. Louis Street in Osceola.
Officials say this is all in connection with a singular drug investigation.
Officers seized approximately 3 pounds of meth, approximately 4 pounds of marijuana, two handguns, a stolen SUV and $3,300 in cash, according to the ISP.
Neighbors along Louis Street, woke up to a scary scene this morning.
"I saw about 10-20 men in the yard across the street. Guns were drawn and they were pounding on the door trying to get in, screaming that they had a warrant," recalls Ashley Finn.
She heard it was a meth bust, and wasn't surprised.
"We've been trying to get these people out of our neighborhood for years," says Finn. "They clearly don't care about the children in the neighborhood. If something were to go wrong in the house, it could explode."
Each of the drug raids took place less than six miles away from each other.
One was at a auto repair garage and the other two were at homes.
The following people were detained after Wednesday's raids:
- Jeromee Sells, 39, of Osceola, was arrested on a preliminary charge of distributing methamphetamine
- Michelle Haughee, 36, of Elkhart, was arrested on an outstanding warrant
- Michele Johnson, 48, of Osceola, was arrested on a preliminary charge of dealing methamphetamine
- Jason Myers, 43, of Edwardsburg, was arrested on a preliminary charge of maintaining a common nuisance
