Three arrested in Fulton Co. drug bust

Police first called for domestic fight.

ROCHESTER — Two Fulton County residents and a fugitive from South Bend were arrested Wednesday night on drug charges.

After a call about a domestic situation at J.J. Richard Dairy Farm in Fulton County, according to police reports, officers obtained a search warrant and found methamphetamine, marijuana and a fugitive hiding in the home. Charla Richard, 37, and John Wise, 45, of rural Rochester, were both arrested along with Tenneil Selner, 32, of South Bend.

The Indiana State Police and the Fulton County Sheriff Department were on scene for the arrests.

Police were called to the dairy farm in the 2000 block of West 500 North in Fulton County after Richard’s husband reported she had cut the tires and broke the windows of a pickup truck and fired a pellet gun.

While searching the home, police said they found methamphetamine, marijuana and Selner inside the home, according to a press release.

After obtaining a second search warrant, the release also states, police found a methamphetamine lab, chemical precursors for manufacturing methamphetamine, hypodermic needles and two pellet guns. Two children were also in the residence and they were later turned over to relatives.

Richard and Wise, who also lived at the residence, were arrested on felony charges of possession of methamphetamine, maintaining a common nuisance, manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of drug precursors, and possession of a police scanner during the commission of a felony.

Selner was arrested on two federal arrest warrants and faces local felony charges for possession of methamphetamine and possession of hypodermic needles.

The Indiana State Police Peru Post Meth Enforcement Team collected evidence and cleaned up the methamphetamine lab.

All three individuals remained in the Fulton County Jail as of Thursday afternoon on $40,000 surety bonds.
