Ripley County Sheriff’s Office deputies executed a search warrant at the apartment home of Timothy M. Winters, 34, and Carrie L. Winters, 35, on Tuesday evening, January 15. The investigation stemmed from information gathered by a deputy.
During the search, deputies found drugs and paraphernalia, as well as multiple items commonly used to manufacture methamphetamine. The Indiana State Police Methamphetamine Suppression Section was called to the scene to assist with safely disposing of the materials.
