One arrested in Avon drug bust

AVON — A Greenwood man was arrested Tuesday in the Office Depot parking lot here, following a hand-to-hand buy of liquid GHB with United Drug Task Force and Indiana State Police officers.

Jeffery S. Bomaster, 45, was charged with three counts possession of a controlled substance, a class D felony; two counts of dealing in a schedule I controlled substance, a class B felony; and one count of dealing in a schedule IV controlled substance, a class C felony.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Bomaster was arrested during a second scheduled transaction between him and the task force. The first occurred on Jan. 8 in the parking lot of the Kroger grocery store here. On that occasion, a United Drug Task Force officer and a confidential informant met with Bomaster and purchased liquid GHB and alprazolam, also known as xanex. Those substances were purchased for $400 of previously recorded UDTF buy money.

During the Jan. 19 interaction, the affidavit states that Bomaster gave undercover officers liquid GHB in exchange for $640 of previously recorded UDTF buy money.

Following the exchange, uniformed officers moved in and arrested Bomaster, who was taken to the Hendricks County Jail in Danville.

Bomaster had an initial hearing Jan. 21 in Hendricks Circuit Court with Judge Jeffrey Boles presiding. His pre-trial is scheduled for March 17 with a jury trial scheduled for April 7. Bond has been set at $100,000.

Hendricks County Deputy Prosecutor Jim Bryan said the liquid GHB is used because it’s easier to ingest for some people and can also easily be given to people who do not know they are consuming it.

He said prescription drug abuse is becoming more common and that residents should take the same precautions with their prescription drugs that they do with any other form of identification or cash to keep them from being stolen.

“Prescription drugs ... lot are forgery cases, with fraudulent scripts,” he said. “They just have to treat it like any other form of identification you have, not laying loose in your car or anything like that. Just look at that the same as (protecting) cash or identifiers.”

If convicted, Bomaster could be looking at serving between six and 20 years in prison.
