Linton meth lab bust ends in three arrests

LINTON — Three Linton residents were arrested Thursday night on multiple controlled substance charges related to methamphetamine, according to Indiana State Police in Bloomington.

A cooperative investigation between State Police and the Linton Police Department culminated with the arrests of Raul Sepulveda Jr., 33, Brandy Bailey, 36 and Christie Rupp, 30.

The three were taken to the Greene County Jail, where they were being held without bond Sunday.

Trooper Richard Klun received information that Sepulveda, Bailey and Rupp had been involved in the purchase of precursors for the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

He then conducted a follow-up investigation in which he and troopers from the Meth Suppression Team gathered evidence to support probable cause that manufacturing of methamphetamine was occurring from a residence on North West 11th Street in Linton.

A search warrant was approved by the Greene Superior Court, and when it was executed, officers found numerous items related to the manufacture of methamphetamine including precursors, reagents, equipment used to manufacture meth and other ingredients used to manufacture meth. They also located a powdery substance that field-tested positive for methamphetamine.

Others assisting in the investigation were the Jasonville Police Department, the Worthington Police Department and the Indiana State Police Clandestine Lab Team.
