Search Lands Knox Woman in Jail on Drug Charges

A warranted search in Knox led to the arrest of a Knox woman on charges of Possession of Heroin as a Class D felony on Tuesday morning. Around 8:09 a.m., officers from the Knox Police Department and the Starke County Sheriff’s Department executed a search warrant at a home on Riverside Drive in Knox after a lengthy investigation into heroin use at the residence turned up enough evidence to warrant a search, issued by the Starke Circuit Court.

Police arrested Ashleigh M. Brewer, 25, as a result of the raid. She is currently incarcerated at the Starke County Jail pending a court hearing.

Because a child was present at the residence with Brewer, officials contacted the Indiana Department of Child Services to the scene. The child has since been placed with a relative.

Other arrests are expected in this case as it remains under investigation.
