    November 23, 2011 No comments

    Indiana Conservation Officers arrested two Indiana men Monday afternoon for multiple hunting and drug violations in Johnson County.

    Conservation Officers were on routine patrol on Atterbury Fish and Wildlife Area Property, when they witnessed two subjects beginning to enter the field to hunt. Officers stopped the subjects to complete a routine hunting license check. During the check it was discovered that one subject had already exceeded his daily limit on Ring-necked Pheasant and the other subject had reached his daily limit.

    Upon further investigation, officers received consent to search the vehicle driven by the subjects. During the search, Conservation Officers discovered marijuana and other drug paraphernalia located inside the vehicle.

    One subject was arrested on charges of felony possession of marijuana, misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia and misdemeanor exceeding the daily bag limit of Ring-necked Pheasant. The other subject was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana, misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia and misdemeanor attempting to exceed the daily bag limit for Ring-necked Pheasant. Both men were booked into the Johnson County Jail.

    The State of Indiana regulates the number of Ring-necked Pheasant that can be taken daily to ensure a healthy population.
