(La Porte, IN) - Another methamphetamine-related arrest in what seems to be an epidemic has been made locally. Brook Scales, 29, was still being held today in the La Porte County Jail after being taken into custody on December 6th.
According to police, officers in La Porte responded to the 700 block of Ridge Street in response to a tip. There were multiple people supposedly at that location with warrants out for their arrests, including Scales who was outside of an apartment building at the time of her arrest. During a search, a small amount of methamphetamine was allegedly found in her pants pocket.
According to court documents, Scales is being held for pick-up by authorities in St. Joseph County to face a Level 6 felony charge of unlawful possession of a syringe in their jurisdiction.
She's expected to return to La Porte to face a Level 6 felony charge of possession of methamphetamine once her case in St. Joseph County has been decided.
