The investigation resulted in the arrest of Blaine Allen Sawyer, 44, of Edwardsburg, Mich. Seized in the arrest was also 382 grams of marijuana, an undisclosed amount of cash, and a vehicle.
The amount of marijuana and packaging indicated that Sawyer was involved in the dealing/sale of the drug. He was booked into the Kosciusko County Jail on a charge of dealing marijuana, a class C felony. Initially no bond was set.
Warsaw Police continue to investigate this matter. They were assisted by the Kosciusko County Prosecutor’s office.
