SCOTT COUNTY PROSECUTOR’S OFFICE CONTINUES THEIR PROGRESS IN 2019 BY HOLDING PEOPLE ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS

The Scott County Prosecutor’s Office began 2019 by continuing to hold offenders accountable for crimes they commit. On January 7th and January 8th, three (3) drug offenders were sent to prison by the prosecutor’s office.
Paul Floyd was convicted by plea agreement of Dealing in Methamphetamine and Burglary and was sentenced to ten (10) years in prison. The dealing conviction was the result of drugs and a large sum of money being found in the residence of Mr. Floyd by the Scottsburg Police Department. Even though Mr. Floyd did not directly sell these drugs to someone, the quantity of drugs, the large amount of money, and other information possessed by law enforcement allowed him to be charged and convicted of dealing under a section of the law that states that possession of drugs with the intent to deliver them to someone else equates to dealing.
Mr. Floyd’s Burglary conviction stemmed from him breaking into the rear of a home that belonged to a neighbor of his friend. Inside the home, they hooked an extension cord up and ran it to the friend’s house to steal electricity. He also took several power tools and wood tools from the victim.
Lanny Jay Dylan McIntosh was convicted of Conspiracy to Commit Trafficking with an Inmate and had his probation revoked for a previous case he had been convicted of. Mr. McIntosh was sentenced to a total of seven (7) years in prison for his conduct. The Conspiracy to Commit Trafficking conviction resulted from an investigation of the Scott County Sheriff’s Department where they discovered that while incarcerated in the Scott County Jail, Lanny McIntosh was involved in a plan to have Suboxone pills snuck to him inside the jail. The conviction in this case also resulted in a previous sentence he had received being revoked and him serving additional time in prison. Ater m of Mr.McIntosh’s sentence allows for him to receive substance abuse treatment while serving his time.
Joey Brandenburg was convicted of Possession of Methamphetamine over five (5) grams and Resisting Law Enforcement. He received a total sentence of 5 1⁄2 years with 3 1⁄2 of those to be served in prison. Upon his release he will be under the supervision of the Scott County Probation Department. His convictions were the result of a traffic stop by the Scott County Sheriff’s Department. The stop was initiated because the license plate had not been issued to that vehicle he was driving. During the stop, Deputy Joe Johnson realized that other suspicious activity was afoot. The Sheriff’s Department K-9 Arina conducted an open air sniff of the vehicle and indicated to the presence of narcotics within. A search of the vehicle was conducted and the drugs were found in a pouch that also contained Mr. Brandenburg’s identification.
“I hope everyone realizes how serious we are about the prosecution of drug offenders in our community,” stated Chris Owens, Prosecuting Attorney. He further stated, “This is not a place where someone can make decisions to break the law and then just come in and wine for forgiveness. We believe in accountability and holding people responsible. If you are involved in the distribution of drugs within our community, law enforcement and prosecution here are going to make you pay your debt to society.”
I would like to thank the law enforcement agencies involved in these cases and Deputy Prosecutor Amanda Herald for the work she did to help with the prosecutions of these individuals.

Paint the Plow
INDIANA – The Indiana Department of Transportation announces the kick off of its 2019 Paint the Plow campaign, a community outreach program designed to promote safety and awareness of INDOT’s Winter Operations all year long.
Each INDOT District invites art classes/programs from middle and high schools to paint an INDOT snow plow blade with original artwork to represent their school. Applications and additional program details can be found here: painttheplow.indot.in.gov
In addition to being seen in full service during the winter weather months, the blades may be used at events within the school’s community to enhance public awareness, promote safety and foster greater appreciation of both INDOT and the school’s art program.
Paint the Plow is open to all middle schools, high schools and career-technical schools across the state. Only students who are currently enrolled in the applicant school may participate in the creation, execution and completion of the art project.
For more information or questions about the Paint the Plow campaign, visit painttheplow.indot.in.gov to find the contact information for your District.




All Delphi Murder Investigation Tips are Investigated

Delphi, Indiana - At the request of the Delphi multi-agency investigative team, which consists of members of the Carroll County Sheriff’s Department, the FBI and the Indiana State Police, the following information is being provided to the public and media: The Delphi multi-agency investigative team, and participating agencies continue to receive media and public inquiries asking about the person arrested January 8, 2019, in Union City, Randolph County Indiana for allegations of sexually related crimes against children and if he is connected to the Delphi investigation.  The team is aware of this arrest and will investigate to see if there could be any connection to the murders that occurred in Delphi, Indiana on February 14th of 2017.  It is important for the public and media to know that many similar tips and arrests of other persons alleged to be connected to the Delphi murders occur with some frequency in and outside of Indiana.  Each tip - whether it receives media attention or not - is investigated for any connection to the Delphi case.  That said, members of the Delphi multi-agency investigative team do not speak to specific actions or steps of the ongoing investigation. Capt. Dave Bursten, the Chief Public Information Officer for the Indiana State Police, commented, “We know it’s hard for the public and media to resist posting side-by-side comparisons on social media of people who are alleged to have committed heinous crimes and also resemble the sketch of the Delphi murder suspect.” Bursten continued, “The only positive result from these actions is it keeps this open investigation in the mind of the public.  What we really appreciate is when the public submits their tip information to either the tip email address of Abbyandlibbytip@cacoshrf.com  or calls the tip line at (844) 459-5786 to pass along their information.”  Bursten concluded, “I can promise you this, when an arrest is made of a suspect identified by the multi-agency investigative team as the alleged perpetrator of the Delphi Murders, rest assured, we will let everyone know.”

Jumbo Culvert Will Replace Pipe Paralleling I-64
 

NEW ALBANY, Ind.—Indiana Department of Transportation officials met with contractor personnel, design engineers and New Albany’s city engineer at Seymour District offices this morning (JAN 17) to review plans and timelines for a $3.8 million drainage structure project that will construct a 910-foot-long culvert paralleling the west side of Interstate 64 between Cherry and Spring Streets, 0.52 miles north of State Road 111. The new 12 X 12-foot reinforced concrete box installation replaces a 13-foot-diameter steel pipe that was put in place in the 1960s during I-64 construction to carry Valley View Creek. A section of the pipe collapsed in 2016—requiring significant temporary repairs. Weddle Brothers, INDOT’s contractor, plans to install the jumbo culvert in 5-foot pre-formed sections with deflections to accommodate horizontal bends at six direction-modification locations. More than 180 of these sections will be set in place. The Evansville contractor will begin onsite operations on/after March 1. INDOT’s contract calls for work to be significantly completed by October 31. Construction traffic will enter the worksite via Commerce Street

Mann began his career as an Indiana Conservation Officer in 1990, when he was assigned to Boone County, northwest of Indianapolis. Since 1997, the Loogootee resident and Dubois County native has served District 7, where he is assigned to Martin and Dubois counties.  Considered the division’s expert on tree-stand safety, he reviews and documents all tree-stand accidents and has done several public service announcements in the last few years on the topic. He also makes frequent personal appearances for DNR Law Enforcement, including Jakes Day events for the NWTF.  In 2018, the 28-year veteran received DNR Law Enforcement’s Pitzer Award, which is given to its top overall field officer in the state. Previously, he has been recognized as District 7’s Officer of the Year, Boating Officer of the Year and Hunter Education Officer of the Year.   Mann is now eligible for the NWTF National Wildlife Officer of the Year Award, which will be selected Feb. 16 at the NWTF Convention and Sport Show in Nashville, Tennessee.

STATE REP. TERRY GOODIN OF AUSTIN SEEKS TRUTH IN LABELING LAW IN INDIANA


Hoosiers would know that the meat they eat and the milk they drink comes from farm animals rather than a lab under the provisions of legislation filed today by State Rep. Terry Goodin (D-Austin). Goodin’s proposal, set for consideration in the 2019 session of the Indiana General Assembly, would bring “Truth in Labeling” laws to our state. It attempts to address growing concerns against recent trends that grow food through scientific engineering instead of naturally on farms. “In recent years, we have seen a trend where scientists are taking DNA samples from cows and chickens, then using that DNA to grow meat in their labs,” Goodin said. “The meats from these scientifically-created food are then being passed off in their labeling as if they are being harvested from live animals on a farm. I think that’s wrong and false advertising, and I think people have the right to know where their steaks, hamburgers and chicken are coming from.” Goodin’s bill would prevent products from being labeled as being meat or poultry or as coming from the milk of a cow, goat, or other animal, when in fact the products contain tissue cultured in vitro from animal cells. In vitro animal products, sometimes referred to as “clean meat,” are made from stem cells harvested via biopsy from living livestock, which are then grown in a lab over a number of weeks. “I have no problem with scientists making meat in a petri dish, as creepy as that sounds,” Goodin said. “I just don’t like the idea of them trying to hoodwink people into thinking that it is a natural food fresh from a farm. I simply don’t want big business to have the right to tell the public that the meat they are eating is farm fresh when it has actually been grown in a lab.”
