On Sunday March 8, 2015 Deputy Shawn Mayer of the Scott County Sheriff’s Department and his narcotic detection canine, Arina, was requested by the Austin Police Department and dispatched to 523 Broadway Avenue in Austin, to assist on a search of a residence. On scene Deputy Mayer was apprised of the situation and requested to utilize K9 Arina to conduct a sniff of the interior of the residence. Upon conducting the sniff, K9 Arina indicated to the possible presence of narcotics in several areas of the household. After Deputy Mayer and K9 Arina finished their detail on the interior of the residence, a hand search of those areas K9 Arina indicated on was conducted. That hand search of those areas produced numerous small Ziploc baggies commonly associated with dealing in narcotics, paraphernalia, and heavy residue from the use of illegal substances. One area of the residence, particularly in the basement, searched by hand after K9 Arina alerted heavily, by attempting to drag a safe from a shelf, produced more paraphernalia, and a wooden box containing a Ziploc baggie, containing 17.96g of a crystal-like substance field testing positive for Methamphetamine. In the search of the residence $2736.00 in U.S. Currency in denominations commonly associated with the sale of narcotics was also seized from the Helton’s. Subsequently four subjects, Steve Helton (44), Lisa Helton (32), Sara Blythe (32), and Sandra Stacy (23) were taken into custody and Stacy’s infant child was released to a family member.

All subjects are currently being held at the Scott County Security Center, Scott County Indiana, and are currently charged with numerous charges for Dealing in Narcotics, Possession of Narcotics, Maintaining a Common Nuisance, Visiting a common nuisance, Possession of Paraphernalia, and Child Neglect.
