Three people are facing drug-related charges after police raided multiple homes in Sunman Wednesday night.

Investigators with the Ripley County Sheriff’s Office spent several months gathering information and conducting surveillance before searching two residences.

Sheriff Tom Grills said, “During the execution of the search warrants, officers located numerous items of drug paraphernalia, as well as multiple drugs, and other items used for the use and sale of illegal drugs.”

Officers obtained information that evening that led to a search of a third home. The raid turned up evidence consistent with the use and dealing of illegal drugs, Grills said.

Three people were arrested and booked into the Ripley County Jail:

Chris Carptenter, 27, and Victoria Farrell, 20, both of Sunman, are charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance and Maintaining a Common Nuisance.

William Underwood, 23, of Sunman, is charged with Dealing in a Controlled Substance and Maintaining a Common Nuisance.

The cases are still under investigation by the Ripley County Sheriff’s Office and the Indiana State Police.

Sheriff Grills noted,”This was a great effort again by my staff and ISP to put a dent in a serious drug problem in our community. Most people know I am retiring, but I promised to remain vigilant to the end. My office will continue to move forward after I am gone and I am proud to have accomplished so much in my years as Sheriff. I thank my staff for helping, and making that happen.”
