Two people arrested in Fulton County after months long criminal investigation
FULTON COUNTY, Ind.—Two people in Fulton County have been arrested after a months long criminal investigation, according to Indiana State Police.
The investigation began when a trooper received information about possible illegal drug activity occurring at a home in the 700 block of Cherry Tree Lane in Rochester.
A warrant was issued for Adina Jezreel Keckler, 35 for alleged possession of methamphetamine.
On Wednesday, officers served the warrant, along with a search warrant for her home, and took Keckler into custody.
During a search of Keckler’s home, police found about eight ounces of methamphetamine, 11 firearms, and about $951 in cash, Indiana State Police said.
One of the recovered firearms had previously been reported stolen out of Cass County, Indiana.
Officers also located Keckler’s younger adult brother who has a disability and relied on his sister for care, Indiana State Police said. He was found to be in an “unclean state and allegedly had bugs crawling on him,” reports said.
Keckler’s brother was taken to a local hospital and released into the care of another family member.
Keckler was booked into the Fulton County Jail on suspicion of dealing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of stolen property, neglect of a dependent and possession of drug paraphernalia.
During the subsequent investigation, a search warrant was issued for a home in the 2800 block of E. Main Street in Macy.
Police found two handguns with “obliterated” serial numbers, methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia, reports said. Officers also recovered the frame of a motorcycle that was reported stolen from Howard County, Indiana.
Scotty Evers, 35, was booked into the jail on multiple charges.
