BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — A lengthy drug investigation by the Indiana State Police Bloomington District ACES lead to the arrest of a Bedford couple Tuesday.

Indiana State Police (ISP) said the investigation began after police received information that Jeffrey Rose, 54, and his wife, Shannon Rose, 49, were possibly involved in dealing methamphetamine.

According to ISP, around 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 7, officers went to the Rose’s home on the 300 block of R Street in Bedford.
