[ISP] One Vehicle Crash, Driver Arrested on Drug Charges
Start Date: 3/5/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 3/5/2014
Entry Description
Clay County—Last night at 8:52, off-duty Indiana State Police Trooper Ian Portteus was eastbound on State Road 46 near County Road 700 East, when he witnessed a vehicle leave the roadway, hit an earthen embankment, a yard sign, and a large bale of hay. Portteus radioed for assistance and approached the vehicle to find no injuries with the three occupants. However, Portteus did notice what appeared to be the smell of marijuana coming from the black, 1998, Honda, Civic.

On-duty Trooper Michael Featherling arrived to conduct the investigation and requested assistance from Brazil Police Officer Robert VanBuren and K-9 “Titan”. Further investigation found Titan “alerting” to the driver’s side of the vehicle and a subsequent search revealed three black bags containing 61 hypodermic needles, spoons with white powder residue, approximately 20 grams of marijuana, and assorted drug paraphernalia items. The spoons and six of the needles field tested positive for methamphetamine.

Arrested: Jody Allen Bush, age 45, of Terre Haute, IN.
Incarcerated in the Clay County Jail.

Charges: Felony Possession of Methamphetamine and Possession of Hypodermic Needles, and Misdemeanor Possession of Marijuana and Paraphernalia.
