Police reportedly found 21 grams of methamphetamine hidden on two people arrested after a traffic stop in Zionsville.
Jackson S. Rebic, 22, of Greenwood, was driving when Zionsville Police Officer Amanda Heitz pulled him over because she couldn’t see his taillights at about 2 a.m. Sept. 14, according to court records.
Rebic was so nervous he avoided eye contact, was sweating and had shaking hands, Heitz reported. She called in a drug dog and found meth in the console and under the driver’s seat and a syringe in a purse, according to a probable cause affidavit.
Police transported both occupants of the car to the Boone County Jail where a scanner revealed about 15 grams of meth hidden in Rondeece Coghill’s privates, Heitz reported.
Jailers found 6 grams of meth and a package of small baggies in Rebic’s sock, which led them to believe he was dealing in meth, police reported.
Coghill, 36, of Kirklin, is charged with unlawful possession of a syringe and possession of meth between 10 and 28 grams.
Rebic is charged with dealing in meth and possession of paraphernalia.
Both are being held in the Boone County Jail and are scheduled for initial hearings in November and trials in February.
Rebic was convicted of criminal mischief in 2018 and theft in ‘17. Coghill was convicted of operating a vehicle while intoxicated in 2013.
Twenty-one grams of meth represent about 210 individual does and dealers sell it in small baggies, according to a Hamilton/Boone County Drug Task Force detective.
