Drugs, cash found during vehicle stop

Police: Pair of dealers arrested

Police found 10 pounds of marijuana in a Greenwood apartment this week and arrested two suspected drug dealers, one who is a teenager.

Bailey J. Osborne, 19, of Greenwood, and Corbin H. Rafferty, 20, of New Whiteland, were both arrested on a felony charge of dealing marijuana.

Police said both men were connected to what police knew as a drug house in an apartment complex at U.S. 31 and Fry Road in Greenwood. Officers got a search warrant for the apartment Wednesday and found 10 pounds of marijuana inside two safes, smoking devices throughout the home, marijuana “butter” used for cooking and consuming marijuana and a bag of mushrooms, a Greenwood police report said. Police consider the amount of marijuana to be substantial.

The incident began with a traffic stop due to the driver, later identified as Rafferty, not using his turn signal, the report said. Police had watched the vehicle leave the suspected drug apartment, the report said.

Rafferty had a marijuana cigarette behind his ear when police stopped him, and officers found marijuana, marijuana “butter” and more than $1,300 in cash in the truck.

Rafferty, of 41 Poplar Court, was arrested on additional felony charges of possession of marijuana and possession of cocaine or narcotics and a misdemeanor charge of possession of paraphernalia. He was held at the Johnson County jail on $24,000 bond.

Osborne, of 660 Wooddale Terrace, was arrested on an additional misdemeanor charge of possession of marijuana and was held on $2,200 bond. The Johnson County Prosecutor’s Office will decide what, if any, charges to file.
