NORTH WEBSTER — Two people were recently arrested on several drug-related charges.
Lindsay Clare Krieg, 26, 428 W. Tanya Ave., North Webster, is charged with dealing methamphetamine, a level 3 felony; and possession of methamphetamine, a level 5 felony. She is also charged with possession of methamphetamine, a level 5 felony; possession of a narcotic drug and maintaining a common nuisance, both level 6 felonies; and possession of marijuana, a class B misdemeanor, in a second case.
Joshua Terry Smith, 36, 1832 Cambridge Drive, Warsaw, is charged with three counts of dealing methamphetamine, all level 2 felonies; two counts of possession of methamphetamine, both level 4 felonies; and three counts of possession of methamphetamine, all level 3 felonies.
Sometime in November 2022, the NET43 Drug Task Force purchased 7.26 grams of meth from Krieg.
At the time of the November incident, Krieg was on bond for a methamphetamine possession case.
On Feb. 17, NET43, Indiana State Police and the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at a home in North Webster. Forced entry was made after no one answered the door.
According to court documents, the purpose of the search warrant was to look for any items associated with illegal drugs and drug sales. Upon searching the residence, officers found Krieg and Smith.
While executing the search warrant, officers found 21.7 grams of marijuana, 19.4 grams of meth, drug paraphernalia, multiple mobile phones, several ledgers that appeared to be connected to drug dealing, and a fentanyl pill.
Smith has two prior convictions for dealing cocaine or a narcotic drug. He also has three pending criminal cases for theft, narcotic drug possession, and domestic battery with moderate bodily injury.
Both Smith and Krieg have been arrested on these cases.
