An Edinburgh woman was arrested on multiple drug charges after a more than six-month investigation.
Tammy Jo Money, 44, 901 S. Roosevelt St., was arrested on three charges of possession of a controlled substance, possession of a legend drug, possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia, false informing and disorderly conduct. She also was arrested on a warrant for three counts of dealing methamphetamine.
Police had been looking for her since charges were filed last year, Edinburgh Deputy Police Chief David Lutz said. Undercover officers bought methamphetamine from Money three times in July after police received complaints of drug dealing in the town.
During a traffic stop around 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Money identified herself as another woman, but police could not find anyone with that name and her description, interim Hope Town Marshal Matt Talent said. The driver of the vehicle, Rollon Bart Dampier, 50, had a Morgan County warrant for a charge of receiving stolen property and was arrested.
Inside the vehicle, officers found a clear container containing crystal methamphetamine and several pills, Talent said. Two bags of marijuana were found in Money’s purse, and pills were found in a tin container during a body search, he said.
A Hope officer was driving Money to the Bartholomew County Jail and said she attempted to kick the back seat windows out of the patrol car, Talent said. Money was being held on $150,000 bond.
Police weren’t sure of Dampier’s current address. He was being held without bond.
