Police arrest three brothers believed to be main marijuana suppliers in Evansville
EVANSVILLE—Three brothers police believe are the “main marijuana suppliers for the Evansville area” were arrested after police executed a search warrant at their house Aug. 31.
Rock County sheriff's Capt. Todd Christiansen on Tuesday said police arrested:
-- Dale R. Hall, 20, on a charge of possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.
-- Steven A. Hall, 18, on the same charge.
-- Anthony R. Hall, 18, on a charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Christiansen said police have information that the three brothers were supplying marijuana to others in their age group. The arrests should reduce the supply of marijuana in Evansville, he said.
Deputies executed the search warrant at 513 Goldcoast Lane, Evansville, and reported finding about 14 ounces of suspected marijuana, about 7.2 ounces of suspected marijuana wax, 20 glass smoking bongs, two doses of suspected LSD, three digital scales and other items.
The sheriff's office and the Evansville Police Department have acquired information about the sale of marijuana at the Goldcoast address over the last several months.
Police have watched the house and reported seeing people frequently come and go, which can indicate the sale of controlled substances, according to the search warrant.
On Aug. 31, a deputy stopped a man who had left the house and was driving 15 to 20 mph over the speed limit on Old 92nd Street in Evansville, according to the warrant. The man, later identified at Steven Hall, was shaking while speaking and would not make direct eye contact.
The deputy called in the sheriff's police dog, and they later found a blue and white rubber container with marijuana wax, according to the warrant.
The Rock County District Attorney's Office had not filed criminal charges against the Halls as of Tuesday afternoon.
