Madison County Authorities Bust Biggest Heroin Ring

Madison County authorities have busted what they're calling the county's largest heroin distribution and sales network. 

Anderson Police Spokesman Det. Joel Sandefur says eight people are in custody.  They're all believed to be major heroin suppliers in Madison County.  Sandefur says the arrests follow a six-month probe that traced the heroin ring from New York to Castleton near Indianapolis to Anderson.  He says it came to a head Wednesday night when authorities executed a search warrant at an apartment in the 8400 block of Clear Water Lane in Castleton, building number two.  They confiscated $100,000 in cash along with three pounds of heroin and a half-kilo of cocaine with a combined street value estimated at $250,000.  Sandefur says more arrests are possible. 

Arrests include: 36-year-old Shaunette Yvonne Brooks of Indianapolis, 42-year-old Jerome Dixon of Indianapolis, 25-year-old Jessica Rose Inholt of Anderson, 41-year-old Brian Deweese of Anderson, 22-year-old Jayme Michelle Dollens of Pendleton, 64-year-old Bobby Wayne Moore of Anderson, 38-year-old Jon Robert Niccum of Anderson and 44-year-old James Alexis Dixon of New York.  All are charged with dealing and manufacturing drugs.  They're being held on anywhere from $25,000 to $1 million bond.
