Bryce E. Sadler, 24, Jasper, Count 1: Dealing in Methamphetamine, a Level 5 felony. Mr. Sadler was served with his arrest warrant on May 21, 2015, after he was arrested in Jasper on unrelated criminal charges (Possession of a Handgun without a License, A misdemeanor, and Possession of Paraphernalia, Class A misdemeanor). Mr. Sadler appeared in the Dubois County Superior Court for an initial hearing on his new Dealing in Methamphetamine charge on May 26, 2015. The State of Indiana requested that a bond be set in the amount of $10,000 cash only, but the Court only imposed a bond of $2,000 cash. Mr. Sadler remains incarcerated at this time, and is set for a pre-trial hearing on June 9, 2015, at 10:00 AM.

Dubois County Deputy Prosecutor Beth Sermersheim says local law enforcement officials want to send a message to drug dealers, as well as to the community as a whole, that we are not passively watching drug dealing go on in Dubois County.

“We have actively gone out and pursued the people who are selling drugs in the area, and we will continue to do so. Operation Double Trouble is ongoing at this time, and additional arrests are expected in the coming weeks.”

Sermersheim says further information will be released upon completion of the investigation.
