Post image for Mitchell Police Arrest 12 on Drug Related Charges

Thursday evening, a pair of Mitchell police officers went to a home on Warren Street to serve a warrant on a Mitchell man. While they expected to be making an arrest, they certainly didn’t expect to make over a dozen.

At 8:40 p.m., according to the Mitchell Police Department log, two officers arrived at the home at 1014 W Warren Street. Their job was a routine one that they’ve done many times before — locate a person wanted on an outstanding warrant and take him into custody.

Immediately upon arriving, however, the officers noticed a strong marijuana smell emanating from the home. That led officers to obtain a search warrant for the residence, according to Mitchell Police Department Chief Mike Hardman, who did not know exactly how much marijuana was found.

Because of the number of people involved, officers from the Lawrence County Police Department came to the scene to provide assistance to the Mitchell Police Department.

Altogether, twelve people were arrested in the incident. Two juveniles were released to their grandmothers and one female — who suffered a seizure and was taken to the hospital by ambulance — has yet to be charged.

Note: Several of those charged have recently been arrested in other incidents. In those cases, clicking on the person’s name will take you to the Indiana Mugshots website where their booking photo and prior arrest details are listed.

The following individuals were arrested:

  • Juvenile male, 16, address withheld, Mitchell, maintaining a common nuisance.
  • Juvenile male, 16, address withheld, Mitchell, visiting a common nuisance and possession of marijuana under 30 grams.
  • Landon Cooper, 19, 317 Tarry Park Lane, Bedford, dealing marijuana, possession of marijuana over 30 grams, possession of paraphernalia, maintaining a common nuisance.
