Troopers said they found meth and scales in their vehicle
A Newburgh man and his girlfriend face felony and misdemeanor charges for allegedly dealing and possessing methamphetamine. WNIN’s Sarah Kuper has more:
A routine traffic stop to address a faulty tail light led Indiana State Troopers to find several grams of meth and drug manufacturing supplies belonging to 30 year old Alexander Burton of Newburgh.
Burton’s girlfriend Audrey-Jestina Beverly was driving Burton and another passenger down state road 261 near Oak Grove Road when officers pulled her over.
As officers were talking with the driver and passengers, the man in the back seat began having a seizure and was taken to Deaconess Gateway Hospital.
Burton was removed from the vehicle. In the process, troopers found his driver’s license and realized he had given a fake name. When they searched him they found a digital scale and in the front seat they saw a container with clear plastic baggies containing around 14 grams of meth. Also found in the car was a backpack with syringes, plastic tubing and another digital scale.
Burton is charged with dealing and possessing meth and giving false identification,
Beverly is charged with false reporting for confirming Burton’s fake name.
