The Greensburg Police Department received tips from concerned citizens that led to separate investigations and nine arrests.

Police Chief Stacey Chasteen said the department received information regarding a methampethamine operation in a wooded area located in the 500 block of West Main Street. After weeks of surveillance, two individuals were taken into custody on Wednesday night.

37-year-old Christopher Imel and 28-year-old Everette Ruble, both of Greensburg, were arrested and booked into the Decatur County Jail under suspicion of dealing methamphetamines.

On Wednesday night, detectives from the Greensburg Police Department and Indiana State Police conducted an undercover investigation that led to the purchase of numerous quantities of crystal methamphetamines, the police chief said.

Nathan Shafer, 41, and Tracy Faris, 41, both of Greensburg, were arrested. Shafer is accused of dealing methamphetmamines over 3 grams, and Faris is facing charges for allegedly dealing and possession of the drug.

Police say the undercover sting led to a search warrant at the home of Faris in the 600 block of W. Park Road in Greensburg.

“Inside that residence was located an additional quantity of methamphetamines as well as the materials used for packaging of methamphetamines for distribution,” Chasteen said.

Four individuals were arrested for visiting a common nuisance, Chasteen added.

“The total amount of methamphetamines recovered from the operation conducted during the evening hours of May 28, was sufficient for numerous dosage units to be distributed throughout Greensburg, Decatur County,” indicated Chasteen.

On Friday morning, Margaret Sherman, 40, was apprehended by patrol officers as a result of her alleged participation in arranging the dealing of methamphetamines.

“The Greensburg Police Department would like to express its gratitude to members of the public for their continued support and information, which led to the successful completion of this investigation,” Chasteen said.
