Two Fulton County Residents Arrested on Numerous Criminal Charges

February 29, 2020

Fulton County sheriff logoRecently, criminal investigations by Indiana State Police Troopers Jessie Reason and Caleb Clark led to the arrests of two Fulton County residents on numerous drug related charges.

Trooper Reason launched an approximately three month long criminal investigation after receiving information that possible illegal drug activity was occurring at a home on 789 Cherry Tree Lane, Rochester.  During the course of the investigation, enough probable cause was developed for a Fulton Superior Court arrest warrant to be issued for Adina Jezreel Keckler, 35, Rochester. The warrant alleged a single charge for possession of methamphetamine. A search warrant was also issued for Keckler’s residence at 789 Cherry Tree Lane, Rochester.

Wednesday officers executed the warrants, taking Keckler into custody. During a subsequent search of Keckler’ s residence, officers allegedly found approximately eight ounces of methamphetamine, 11 firearms, and approximately $951.00 in United States currency. One the recovered firearms was an AR-15 rifle that was reported stolen from Cass County.

Also at the residence was Keckler’s younger adult brother. He is mentally challenged and purportedly relies on his sister for care. He was found to be in an unclean state and allegedly had bugs crawling on his person. Officers transported him to a local hospital to be checked. He was eventually released into the care of a family member. Keckler was incarcerated in the Fulton County Jail to face criminal charges for dealing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of stolen property, neglect of a dependent, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

As Trooper Reason’s investigation progressed, Trooper Caleb Clark developed evidence that led to probable cause for a Fulton Superior Court search warrant for a residence at 2830 E Main Street, Macy, this is the Nyona Lake area of Fulton County. That warrant was also executed Wednesday. During a search of the home, officers allegedly found two handguns with obliterated serial numbers, methamphetamine, marijuana, and drug paraphernalia. Officers also purportedly recovered the frame to a motorcycle that had been reported stolen from Howard County.

A resident of the home, Scotty Evers, 35, was taken into custody and incarcerated in the Fulton County Jail. He faces criminal charges for possession of stolen property, neglect of a dependent, possession of marijuana, possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, and two counts for possession of a handgun with an obliterated serial number.
