New Bremen couple arrested after traffic stop at Indian Lake


Washington Township Police made a felony drug bust last week during a traffic stop.

Tollie Hicks, 52, of New Bremen was stopped for speed on State Route 235 near County Road 91.

As officers approached the vehicle a white substance was seen being thrown out of the car.

Hicks was asked to exit the vehicle. As he was getting out, a white prescription pill was observed on the front seat.

A probable cause search was conducted. The white pill on the seat was found to be Hydrocodone, a scheduled II controlled substance. Officers then located six more pills in the grass that were thrown from the vehicle.

Tollie admitted to throwing the pills out of the car.

Neither he nor his passenger, Shannon Hicks, had a prescription for Hydrocodone.

Both Tollie and Shannon Hicks were taken into custody.

Tollie was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and tampering with evidence.

Shannon was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance.

They were both transported and lodged in the Logan County Jail.
