Glenn M. Fox was apparently not expecting a Scott County probation officer and an Indiana State Police trooper to show up at the door of his Scottsburg home on Tuesday afternoon, August 6.
But they did, and now Fox is residing at the Scott County Security Center.
Fox, 34, was taken into custody after the state trooper noticed drug paraphernalia “...in plain sight...” in the residence on Larry Lane.
The unnamed trooper and probation officer were trying to serve an arrest warrant on another subject at the home. When Fox answered the door and began talking to the trooper, the officer said he saw material often determined to be drug paraphernalia.
A search warrant of the premises was obtained. Nearly an ounce of methamphetamine was located, the ISP report related. Also located was suspected Lorazepam, a Schedule IV controlled substance, Hydrocodone, a Schedule III controlled substance, a quantity of marijuana and additional drug paraphernalia.
Fox was scheduled to be formally charged in Scott Circuit Court on Thursday, August 8, with one count of A felony dealing in methamphetamine, three counts of D felony possession of a controlled substance, one count of D felony possession of marijuana and one count of A misdemeanor possession of marijuana and one count of A misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia.
The Scott County Sheriff’s Department assisted at the scene of the incident.
The person for which the warrant was issued was not located at the house.
