A Jefferson County man was jailed for dealing drugs after they were found in his vehicle during a traffic stop in Deputy.
On May 29, 2015 around 6:00 PM, Indiana State Police Trooper Andrew Garrett and Jefferson County Deputy Josh Cochran were enroute to a residence on 1525 W in an attempt to locate a William Russell Milburn. Milburn was the subject of an outstanding Jackson County arrest warrant. The officers observed Milburn, driving a vehicle before they arrived at the residence.

Further investigation resulted in approximately 110 grams of crystal methamphetamine and nearly $2000 in US currency being located inside the vehicle.
Milburn was transported to the Jefferson County jail and incarcerated. He is facing one count of Dealing Methamphetamine over 10 grams, a Level 2 Felony, one count of Possession of Methamphetamine over 25 grams, a Level 3 Felony, one count of Maintaining a Common Nuisance, a Level 6 Felony, one count of Possession of Paraphernalia, a Class A Misdemeanor and the outstanding Jackson County warrant.
