Star City Man Arrested for Manufacturing Meth

Matthew Nolte

Officers from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department arrested a Star City man, Thursday, on manufacturing methamphetamine charges.

Police had received a call of possible drug activity at a Star City residence on State Road 119. When police arrived, they asked Matthew Nolte if they could search the residence. He reportedly agreed and police found a large trash bag on the property with two-liter bottles with an off-white substance. Officers determined that with the consistency of the substance and the odor emitting from the container, it was meth. Police also reportedly found several precursors that are used in the manufacture of methamphetamine.

olte, 39, allegedly told police that all of the evidence was his and he was arrested on preliminary charges of Manufacturing Methamphetamine, Possession of Precursors, Maintaining a Common Nuisance, Possession of Methamphetamine and Dumping Controlled Substance Waste. Indiana State Police was called to the residence to clean up the site.

This case has been forwarded to the Pulaski County Prosecutor’s Office for further review.
