Police arrest Blanford man on methamphetamine charges

BLANFORD — Indiana State Police Troopers from the Putnamville District Meth Lab Enforcement Team arrested a Blanford man Monday morning on methamphetamine-related charges, according to a news release.

Robert Marietta, age 21, faces charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, class-B felony; possession of methamphetamine, class-D felony; dumping controlled waste, class-D felony; maintaining a common nuisance, class-D felony; possession of paraphernalia, class-A misdemeanor; and possession of synthetic drug, class-A misdemeanor.  Marietta is in the Vermillion County jail with bond set at $69,000.

Troopers arrived at the Marietta residence at about 11 a.m. after receiving tips and utilizing other investigative leads. Once at the residence, the team located an active “one-pot” reaction vessel, the release stated.

A search of the residence led troopers to items commonly used in the manufacture and use of methamphetamine, the release stated. A small amount of material, believed to be a synthetic drug, was seized and sent to the ISP laboratory for analysis. No finished methamphetamine product was found because the process was still in the chemical reaction phase, according to the release.

ISP troopers working the case were Shilo Raulston, Brent Robinson and Mike Wood. Assisting was the Vermillion County Sheriff’s Office.

Citizens are urged to report meth related activity to the ISP Putnamville Post at 765-653-4114. All tips can remain anonymous and all information will be investigated. The Putnamville Post is responsible for Parke, Vermillion, Putnam, Vigo, Clay and Sullivan counties.
