Drug busted

An investigation by the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office and Chillicothe Police Department led to the arrest of a Mooresville woman Wednesday on drug-related allegations.

Officers arrested 48-year-old Amy Nieman on the alleged felonies of possession of a controlled substance—methamphetamine and possession of a controlled substance—scheduled prescription medication.

A report is to be submitted to Livingston County Prosecuting Attorney Adam Warren for consideration. Nieman was transferred to the Daviess DeKalb Regional Jail pending formal charges being filed and bond being assigned.

Cox says his office stopped a suspect vehicle on Highway 36 near the airport with an additional investigation by the sheriff’s office and Chillicothe Police Department. K-9 Zaki and Deputy Nicholas Leadbetter were summoned to the scene, and Zaki reportedly alerted to the odor of a drug or drugs being present.

Investigation resulted in the seizure of suspected methamphetamine and controlled prescription medication packaged improperly.
