A Henryville man was being held at the Clark County Jail in Jeffersonville after Indiana State Police placed him in custody on Monday, March 3, after locating drugs at his residence.

Both the home and vehicle of Wade Clinton Roberts, 51, were searched early on Monday morning by ISP officers with the Sellersburg post. Roberts lived on U.S. Highway 31 in the small community in northern Clark County. During the search, officers stated they found marijuana, crystal methamphetamine, drug-related paraphernalia and several controlled substances. Charges in Clark County were being prepared for filing against Roberts on Monday or Tuesday. His preliminary charges included possession of meth under three grams while in possession of a firearm, a Class C felony; nine counts of possession of a controlled substance, all Class D felonies; maintaining a common nuisance, also a D felony; possession of marijuana uner 30 grams with a prior conviction for a similar offense, a Class D felony; and possession of paraphernalia. Information obtained from the ISP post did not indicate if Roberts had been under surveillance for some time or other circumstances that instigated the issuance of a search warrant.
