    On May 21, Charlestown Reserve Officer Josh Campbell received an anonymous tip by a local business employee that there was possible drug activity taking place on the premises.  
    Upon Officer Campbell’s arrival he met with an employee who advised that a female had entered the business to purchase an item. While attempting to pay for the item the female dumped out her purse in order to obtain additional monies when a bag of approximately 3.1 grams of suspected crack cocaine fell out of her purse and onto the counter.  
    The employee explained to Officer Campbell that the female (who was later identified as 26 year-old Ruth E. Daulton of Charlestown), had not immediately discovered that the substance had fallen out of her purse until she went to leave the business in her car. The employee explained to Officer Campbell that Daulton began to search her vehicle and purse for the item when Police were called.
    Daulton was confronted by Officer Campbell in the business parking lot. By this time K-9 Officer Adam Clark and Sgt. Darren Baker arrived to assist. Subsequent to Officer Campbell’s investigation Daulton was arrested and charged with A-Felony Possession of a Narcotic Drug and A-Felony Intent to Deal in Cocaine or a Narcotic Drug.  
    This case is still under investigation, if you have any additional information regarding this case you are encouraged to call Charlestown Police Department at 812-256-6345. All callers can remain anonymous.
