Three women and a man were arrested on Sunday evening, August 7, at an Austin apartment with a quantity of prescription medication they were apparently offering for resale.
The Scott County Sheriff’s Department had been conducting an investigation into the activities of suspects Robert L. “Bobby” Estep, 48, and Judy M. Estep, 55, both of 30 Wilbur Avenue, and Phyllis A. Humphrey, 62, and Ruth E. Hoskins, 50, both of Palmyra.
According to Sheriff Dan McClain, Humphrey and Hoskins had come to the department’s attention when it was learned the women were reportedly “doctor shopping.” They would allegedly try to obtain a variety of prescriptions from a number of different doctors in Southern Indiana, he explained.
The Sheriff’s Department’s investigation also included the Esteps. Bobby Estep was allegedly selling pills from the couple’s apartment, a tip related to the department. A high volume of foot and vehicle traffic was noted by Deputy Jeremy Arnold during his patrols.
The tips and purchases of the drugs Opana, Alprazolam and Clonozepam by an undercover agent resulted in the issuance of a search warrant for the Esteps’ apartment. Sheriff McClain, Chief Deputy Don Campbell and Deputies Arnold and Joe Guarneri as well as Austin Patrolman Nathan Hall served the warrant, finding the four in the apartment around 7:30 p.m.
All were taken into custody while the search of the residence took place. Paraphernalia that included a marijuana pipe and cut straws with white powdery residue were located as were two ledgers in which were listed the names and contact numbers of several known drug users. The ledgers also contained a number of doctors’ and pharmacy numbers. Robert Estep allegedly had a prescription bottle on his person that contained 15 Alprazolam tablets. The prescription was issued in his name. Officers also located $128 in cash on him.
What were described as “unnatural shapes” in Humphrey’s bra resulted in the discovery of two prescriptions there and a money bag in her pants. The prescriptions were for Opana and Oxycodone, and both were reportedly issued to other people. The money bag contained $1,056 in cash.
