JACKSON COUNTY, Ind. (Jan. 22, 2016) – A traffic stop near Seymour led to the arrests of three people in connection with a meth ring.
On Thursday, Trooper Randel Miller stopped a 2002 Chevy Impala going southbound on I-65 near the 51 mile marker. His K-9 alerted him to the presence of drugs in the car, and a search revealed more than 40 grams of crystal meth. Carl Rice, 55, Texas, was arrested on a possession of methamphetamine charge.
Further information gathered during the investigation led state troopers and officers from the Seymour Police Department to Jackson Park Apartments in Seymour. They executed a search warrant at an apartment where they found additional items related to the possession and dealing of illegal drugs.
Two people inside the apartment, Kristin Campbell, 35, and John Wiltermood, 21, were arrested.

In addition, Wiltermood faces a charge of resisting law enforcement.
Rice, Campbell and Wiltermood were all taken to the Jackson County Jail.
