The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department attempted to serve a warrant on October 13th in the 6700 block of County Road 750 North in Winamac. Deputies were searching for 43-year-old Buffey Grigsby and 52-year-old William Morgan.

Both were wanted on charges of Escape, Dealing Synthetic Marijuana, Possession of Methamphetamine, and Possession of a Synthetic Drug from an investigation that took place in July of this year.

Officers were unable to make initial contact, setting up surveillance of the camper located on the property in order to find the suspects for warrant service. According to an incident report, Grigsby and Morgan were allegedly seen fleeing the camper on foot.

The Sheriff’s Department took both into custody. A search of their person allegedly turned up marijuana, synthetic marijuana, and items used in the manufacture of methamphetamine.

A search warrant for the camper was obtained. Pulaski County Deputies say additional cannabis, synthetic marijuana, and meth-related items were located inside.

In addition to the charges from the July warrant, Grigsby and Morgan are also facing new charges of Dealing Methamphetamine, Dealing a Schedule 1 Substance, Possession of Meth, and Maintaining a Common Nuisance.

They were booked into the Pulaski County Jail.
