On July 27, an officer with the Warsaw Police Department witnessed a black Ford Focus failed to use a proper turn signal and conducted a traffic stop. The driver of the vehicle was identified as Yoder, the front seat passenger as Warner and the two rear passengers provided false identifying information. One of the rear passengers was later identified as Lackey and the other as a minor. The officer noticed the driver and passengers appeared extremely nervous.
Another officer arrived with his canine partner who conducted an outer search of the vehicle. The canine gave a positive alert to the presence of illegal drugs. The officers searched the vehicle and discovered a smoking device with marijuana residue, two tubes containing marijuana, three handguns and digital scales with methamphetamine residue. A cooler was located in the back seat which contained scissors, foil, and 20 pieces of LSD blotter paper.
Warner also admitted to having placed several small plastic bags into her vagina. A female jailer later removed three plastic bags of methamphetamine from inside Warner.
All three of the adult individuals were arrested and transported to the Kosciusko County Jail.
