Brownsburg police seize millions in marijuana

BROWNSBURG — BROWNSBURG — Criminals beware. That’s the warning Brownsburg Police Chief Michael Dove issued at a press conference yesterday in response to a major drug bust the department made last week.

Brownsburg police seized more than 1,000 pounds of marijuana during a routine traffic stop last Friday morning, just inside Marion County.

Cpl. Benjamin Pyatt of the Brownsburg Interstate Crime Enforcement Team (ICE) initially stopped Chad Jobe of Lizton for speeding. He was being followed by Delton Hinderliter of Avon in a separate vehicle, which was pulled over by K-9 officer John Maples for speeding.

The stop occurred on 56th Street just inside of I-465. However, Jobe and Hinderliter were speeding inside of Hendricks County.

“It took about two miles before we could get to a safe spot to stop them,” said Pyatt, due to construction on 56th Street.

Pyatt said when he attempted to pull Jobe over, Hinderliter attempted to prevent the traffic stop with his vehicle.

Indiana State Police Master Trooper Dennis Wade and his K-9 officer Mojo were called to assist Pyatt and Maples with the stop.

“Mojo pretty much dragged me straight from my car to the back of the truck,” Wade said.

Police then uncovered 83 bundles of cellophane-wrapped marijuana, weighing more than 1,000 pounds. The drugs have an estimated street value of approximately $2 million.

“I suspected something was going on when I stopped them,” Pyatt said. “The amount of drugs is surprising.”

The drugs were discovered in the back of a pickup truck driven by Jobe, with blacked-out windows. The vehicle driven by Hinderliter contained approximately three grams of marijuana, dubbed “personal use” by the police.

Jobe was arrested and charged with dealing marijuana over 10 pounds, a Class C felony, and possession of marijuana, a Class D felony. Hinderliter was arrested and charged with conspiracy to commit dealing marijuana over 10 pounds, a Class C felony, and possession of marijuana, a Class A misdemeanor. Both men were transported to the Hendricks County Jail where they each posted $25,000 bond.
