Knox City Police officers arrested a Knox man Tuesday after receiving an anonymous tip of an alleged drug deal in the Knox Post Office parking lot.
Officers arrived at the post office to find persons on a moped and in a car. The suspects were known to police as having been involved with narcotics in a prior setting. The officers approached the suspects in the car who were identified as Kurtis Singleton and Aaron Brewer, and noticed a smell of burnt marijuana emitting from the vehicle. They were asked to exit the car and as Singleton stepped out of the car, a cigarette package and a piece of foil hit the ground. He reportedly picked up the cigarette package and stepped on the foil. Officers were able to retrieve the foil package and it contained a white powdery substance that later field tested positive for methamphetamine.
Singleton, 20 of Knox, was then taken into custody and transported to the Starke County Jail. As he got out of the squad car to be processed into the jail, he allegedly dropped another piece of foil that contained a white powdery substance that also field tested positive for methamphetamine. He was booked on a preliminary charge of Possession of Methamphetamine.
