RE: Drug Investigation and Seizure
Anderson, IN – In September of 2021, the Madison County Drug Task Force (DTF) led by Anderson Police Sergeant Det. Keith Gaskill initiated an investigation into suspected trafficking of narcotics and other controlled substances.
From September 2021 through January 2022, the Drug Task Force gathered evidence to execute several search warrants associated with the distribution of fentanyl, cocaine, marijuana, and other THC products into the Anderson community.
On January 31, 2022, law enforcement orchestrated a traffic stop on the primary suspect, Jarrod King (age 31), during a return trip from what is believed to be his alleged primary drug source in Trotwood, Ohio. Simultaneously, local law enforcement executed a search warrant at King’s residence in the 2300 block of Chase Street in Anderson. The actions taken on this date resulted in the seizure of firearms, several hundred grams of suspected fentanyl products, an excess of 50 grams of cocaine, and approximately 24 pounds of marijuana and other THC products.
DTF ultimately filed Probable Cause Affidavits for Felony 2 dealing in cocaine or a narcotic drug, and King was remanded to the custody of the Madison County Sheriff’s Department.
Multiple agencies throughout Central Indiana are accredited for their assistance in this investigation. Those agencies consist of the Anderson Police Department, Indiana State Police, Madison County Sheriff’s Department, and FBI Indianapolis.
The investigation remains ongoing at this time, and DTF is still attempting to locate additional firearms that King allegedly had stored at the residence on Chase Street. Should anyone have information about the location of these firearms or any information pertaining to this investigation, you may contact Detective Lance Blossom with DTF at 765.648.6675.
