The Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office has arrested two suspects on charges of Narcotics dealing. Mr. Damien Shrode and Mr. Zachary Pribble were taken into custody on Saturday, February 27, 2016 at 1316 N. Second Avenue. Deputies had been conducting surveillance at that location when they observed drug dealing activity occurring between the residents of the home and the occupant of a black 2002 GMC Envoy parked in the street.

Deputies detained Mr. Shrodes at his vehicle and recovered 11 grams of suspected methamphetamine, nearly 17 grams of suspected marijuana and $2920.00 from him. A search of the vehicle revealed a silver Ruger .357 revolver and over 110 grams of suspected marijuana.

Deputies recovered over 1,880 grams of suspected synthetic marijuana from Mr. Pribble. A search of Mr. Pribble’s home revealed trace amounts of marijuana all over the floor, furniture and inside a pack-and-play baby bed. Two scales were found inside a children’s play kitchen set along with a marijuana grinder. The kitchen was filled with dirty dishes with old food on the counter top. Piles of trash were observed lying all over the floor of the home. In the upstairs bedroom deputies observed piles of old food that had become infested with bugs.

Both Mr. Shrodes and Mr. Pribble are lodged at the Vanderburgh County Jail with a $50,000 and $20,000 cash bond respectively.
