Entry Description

Rochester – A criminal investigation by Indiana State Trooper Ron Fisher resulted in the arrest of Edward Carter, 53, rural Rochester, IN. Carter surrendered to deputies at the Fulton County Jail where he was served an arrest warrant alleging three felony charges for cultivating marijuana, possession of marijuana over 30 grams, and maintaining a common nuisance.

Last month, Indiana State Trooper Todd Trottier stopped for a disabled vehicle on U.S. 31 near Wabash Road in Fulton County. While speaking with the vehicle’s occupants, Trottier allegedly observed five marijuana plants and electronic equipment in the backseat of the vehicle. Further investigation revealed that the vehicle’s occupants, William Morris, 36, and Damon Dorris, 34, had allegedly traveled from Indianapolis to Carter’s rural Rochester home. The pair allegedly burglarized Carter’s home, stealing the marijuana plants and electronic equipment. Carter was not home during the burglary.

Both men were incarcerated in the Fulton County Jail on felony charges for burglary and possession of marijuana over 30 grams. The men were acquainted with Carter because they were purportedly dating his adult daughters.

As officers continued their investigation, they went to Carter’s home to discuss the unreported burglary. While there, officers purportedly smelled marijuana. During a subsequent search of the residence, officers allegedly found a hidden room with a marijuana plant stem and hydroponic growing equipment inside. Officers also found a small amount of processed marijuana.

Anyone with information about illegal narcotics activity is encouraged to contact their local law enforcement agency. Illegal activity can also be reported anonymously by calling the Indiana State Police Marijuana Tip line at 1-888-873-1694.
