WARSAW — Harold D. McCord Jr. 26, and Felicia A. McCord, 26, both of 2375 S. CR 750E, LaGrange, were recently arrested for possession of a precursor.
According to court documents, on Sunday, Nov. 22, the couple purchased pseudoephedrine, which they sold about 15 minutes later to Shelby Learned, who allegedly planned to use it to manufacture methamphetamine. Police discovered Learned had an active warrant for possession of methamphetamine.
Police pulled the couple’s vehicle over and found Learned and her two-week-old baby in the back seat. A police K-9 was used to conduct an outer-air search around the vehicle. When the K-9 alerted, officers began searching inside the vehicle. They found Walgreen’s and Wal-Mart receipts for pseudoephedrine, both dated that day.
They also found a box of pseudoephedrine in the front seat and a box in Learned’s purse. Felicia McCord stated she had intended to sell the pseudoephedrine to Learned for $50.
Harold McCord admitted he had been selling pseudoephedrine for about three months to earn extra money. Both admitted they knew Learned planned to use the chemical to manufacture meth.
Police arrested Learned. They also arrested Felicia McCord and Harold McCord each for one count of possession or sale of precursors. They were held in the Kosciusko County Jail, each on bond for $5,000 surety and $250 cash.
