    Five people were taken into custody by local officers on Saturday, July 25, for manufacturing the illegal substance methamphetamine in Austin's Spicertown neighborhood.
    Held at the Scott County Security Center are: Tony Combs, 45, South Dowling Drive; Jerry DeHart, 59, Seymour; Barbara McIntosh, 33, North Fourth Street, Austin; Georgenia Morris, 36, West York Road, Austin; and Mystin Williams, 27, North Fourth St., Austin.
    All of the suspects were purportedly discovered at Combs' listed residence at 206 South Dowling Street when officers served a search warrant. The warrant was issued on the basis of possible criminal activity at the address. The building was one of several located at that address, all of which are reported to be owned by Astor Combs of Austin.
Scottsburg Patrolman Troy Ford prepared the probable cause affidavit. He noted that he and Austin Patrolman Robert Gudgel, county deputies Don Campbell and Joe Johnson and reserve deputies Mike Tscheulin, Brandon Watson, Mike Watson and Jack Sanders went to the building at 1:20 a.m. on July 25, discovering the group of suspects.
In an east bedroom of the residence, Ptl. Ford said officers detected a strong chemical odor emanating from containers behind a bed in which meth was “cooking.” Also located was a loaded handgun.

    A $1 million bond is keeping the suspect in a new criminal case in jail and away from the alleged victim.
James E. Johnson, 26, North Meridian Street, Scottsburg, was recently arrested by officers on charges of attempted murder, rape and aggravated battery stemming from a June 28 incident that allegedly occurred at the Pine Street Apartments on the city's north side.
    According to the probable cause affidavit prepared by Lt./Detective Mike Nichols of the Scottsburg Police Department, Lt. David Hardin was called to an apartment. He saw a woman who had apparently been severely beaten about the face and had suffered a slash wound to her throat. Scott County EMS technicians stabilized the victim, who told the officer that she had been attacked by a man in her apartment.
    Blood was found on the walls and floor of the apartment's kitchen and in the woman's bedroom. Also recovered was a broken blade or razor purportedly used in the attack.

Motorcyclist's actions may have contributed to crash PDF Print E-mail

    A motorcyclist who was reportedly seen by others speeding and “popping a wheelie” on U.S. Highway 31 North may have contributed to the accident that seriously injured him just before 5 p.m. on Saturday, July 18, in Austin.
    Two witnesses to the accident at the highway's intersection with Bond Street said that motorcyclist Justin E. Richie, 21, Scottsburg, was “traveling fast” and had just maneuvered his 2006 Honda CBR into a one-wheel stance known as a “wheelie” before striking a 2006 Suzuki Vitara.
    Austin Police Department Lt. Shawn Hurt was called to the scene of the injury accident. He stated that, when he arrived, Richie was lying on U.S. 31 on the Suzuki's passenger side.
    His motorcycle had struck the SUV in the front driver's fender as Stephanie Scott, 15, Austin, had pulled out from Bond St. Both the teenager and her father, Gary Scott, who had been in the front passenger seat of the SUV, said the motorcycle was perhaps a couple hundred feet south of the intersection when the girl pulled out onto U.S. 31. Both said that the motorcycle was going faster than what the girl had reckoned.
    Passers-by tended to Richie, keeping him still while the officer contacted county dispatchers to provide an update of the situation. Scott County EMS arrived on the scene and tended to the injured motorcyclist. While they were doing so, StatCare, the air ambulance stationed in Louisville, was flying over the community on the way back from a run to Indianapolis. Learning of the accident and possible condition of the motorcyclist, the StatCare crew landed the medical helicopter and transported Richie to University of Louisville Hospital.
    According to a family member, Richie suffered two broken legs and additional internal injuries as he flipped over the SUV and landed on the pavement. He was not wearing a helmet, Ptl. Hurt's report indicated.
    Stephanie Scott was transported by ambulance to Scott Memorial Hospital for treatment of a possible back injury.
    In his report, Lt. Hurt related that he saw and photographed a long skid mark going south of Bond St. which the motorcycle had made prior to impact. He also took statements from two men who said they had witnessed Richie's earlier driving along U.S. 31.
    Property damage was estimated at up to $25,000 by Lt. Hurt.
