Two arrested in Fulton County drug investigation

A three month long drug investigation resulted in the arrest of two people in the Rochester area.

Indiana State Police say the investigation happened at a home in the 700-block of Cherry Tree Lane in Rochester after they received information about illegal drug activity. A search warrant was obtained and found in the home was methamphetamine, 11 firearms, one of which was reported stolen out of Cass County, and $951.

35-year old Adina Jezreel Keckler was arrested at the residence.

Police said at Keckler’s residence was her younger adult brother, who is mentally challenged and purportedly relies on his sister for fare. The brother was found in an unclean state and allegedly had bugs crawling on him. He was taken to a local hospital to be checked and was then released to a family member.

Keckler is facing charges of dealing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of stolen property, neglect of a dependent, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

During the investigation, evidence led to another search at a home in the 2800-block of Main Street, Macy in the Nyona Lake area, where police discovered two handguns with obliterated serial numbers, methamphetamine, marijuana, and a motorcycle frame that was reported stolen from Howard County.

Arrested at the Macy home was 35-year old Scotty Evers, who faces charges for possession of stolen property, neglect of a dependent, possession of marijuana, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, and two counts for possession of a handgun with an obliterated serial number.

Both Evers and Keckler were taken to the Fulton County Jail.
