Pair charged after meth investigation

Two people have been charged with dealing methamphetamine after an investigation in Franklin last week.

Emily Chaney, 18, of Whiteland, has been charged with aiding, inducing or causing dealing in methamphetamine. Joshua McCauley, 25, of Indianapolis, has been charged with dealing in methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine. The Johnson County Prosecutor’s Office has filed the charges after the investigation by Franklin police last week.

McCauley sold 14.5 ounces of meth for $530 after the purchase was arranged on social media, according to a probable cause affidavit. Chaney drove McCauley to get the cash from the buyer and leave collateral, then to get the drugs in Indianapolis, and back to a location in Greenwood to sell the meth, according to a probable cause affidavit.

After documenting the drug sale, officers stopped Chaney and McCauley’s vehicle. Officers found clear plastic baggies, a digital scale, a shot gun and ammunition, the affidavit said.
