Bryon Green
Brandi Wright

Two people were arrested Tuesday after officers from the Starke County Sheriff’s Department found them to be in possession of drugs.

Officers were attempting to locate a suspect on an Aggravated Battery charge in the 8000 block of Sycamore Street in Monterey. The suspect’s parents gave the officers permission to search the residence and the suspect was not found. However, they did find $700 in assorted bills, crack cocaine, marijuana and two different types of prescription medications.

As a result of an investigation, Bryon Green and Brandi Wright were later arrested on preliminary charges of Possession of Crack Cocaine/narcotic drugs, Possession of a Schedule II and Schedule IV Controlled Substance and Possession of Marijuana.
