Four Henry County residents remained in jail Wednesday after the Henry County Area Drug Task Force executed a drug search warrant Tuesday evening in New Castle.

ADTF agents entered a Broad Street apartment around 9 p.m. Tuesday and immediately detained four people in the apartment.

Drug task force members searched the apartment and allegedly found crystal methamphetamine, Schedule III medication, marijuana, syringes, drug paraphernalia, individual baggies and digital scales.

Jason Noble, 38, New Castle, was arrested on preliminary charges of possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, a Level 4 Felony, dealing in a Schedule III controlled substance, a Level 5 Felony, maintaining a common nuisance and possession of a syringe, both Level 6 Felonies, possession of marijuana, a B Misdemeanor, and possession of paraphernalia, a C Misdemeanor.

Sara Wilson, 33, Lewisville, was also arrested on preliminary charges of possession of methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, a Level 4 Felony, dealing in a Schedule III controlled substance, a Level 5 Felony, maintaining a common nuisance and possession of a syringe, both Level 6 Felonies, possession of marijuana, a B Misdemeanor, and possession of paraphernalia, a C Misdemeanor.

Chrystal Dean, 33, Knightstown, was arrested on a preliminary charge of visiting a common nuisance, an A Misdemeanor, and for two active warrants.

Joshua Dean, 38, New Castle, was arrested on a preliminary charge of visiting a common nuisance, an A Misdemeanor.

According to court records, three of the four people arrested had previous drug-related charges.

Wilson was on formal probation after pleading guilty in July 2018 to possession of cocaine.

Joshua Dean was recently released from Henry County Jail after violating probation from pleading guilty to possession of a syringe.

Chrystal Dean was sentenced to 2.5 years formal probation July 12, 2018 as part of a deal when she pled guilty to possession of a syringe.

At the request of the Henry County Probation Department, the court revoked Chrystal Dean’s probation and suspended sentence and issued a warrant for her arrest Dec. 4, 2018.

Jason Noble had no prior drug charges in Henry County before Tuesday’s arrest.

Official charges from Tuesday’s ADTF raid had not been filed against Chrystal Dean, Joshua Dean, Noble or Wilson as of press time Wednesday.

The New Castle Police Department and Henry County Prosecutor Joe Bergacs assisted the Henry County Area Drug Task Force in executing the warrant.
