Police arrest 5 for roles in western Indiana meth ring
State police say investigators have arrested five people for roles in a western Indiana methamphetamine distribution ring.
Police say a 35-year-old Terre Haute man was obtaining eights pounds of crystal meth a month from sources in Atlanta that was then distributed to dealers in Vigo County.
State police Sgt. Joe Watts says the Terre Haute group had distributed at least 50 pounds of meth with an estimated street value of $1.1 million over the past eight months.
Watts says raids and a traffic stop on Saturday resulted in the seizures of more than seven pounds of meth, six pounds of suspected marijuana, $12,000 in cash and 12 guns.
The four men and one woman arrested were jailed on preliminary felony charges of methamphetamine dealing.
