A North Vernon man was arrested Sunday afternoon after police there executed a search warrant. At about 4:30 p.m., officers served the warrant, which ended in the arrest of 58-year-old David W. Uberin. Police say the warrant came about after Officer Isaac Barkes gathered information over several weeks that indicated drug activity was taking place at the home.
During the search, police say they found several capsules of a non controlled, prescription medication not contained in a labeled prescription container, along with a small bag with white residue. Drug analysis on the bag is pending.
Uberin was arrested on a preliminary charge of Possession of a Legend Drug without a Valid Prescription, a level 6 felony.
