EATON — Preble County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested two people and seized 58 grams of suspected methamphetamine in unrelated contacts on Tuesday, Dec. 1.
Deputies were assisting the Adult Parole Authority with a home visit of a subject at 3845 Bantas Creek Road. The suspect, David H. Shindeldecker, age 46, was arrested for a parole violation.
During the search, deputies located suspected methamphetamine in the suspect’s pants pocket, and further investigation by the Adult Parole Authority determined that the suspect was in possession of additional suspected methamphetamine in his residence and a .22 caliber handgun.
Due to his status as a convicted felon, Shindeldecker was prohibited from possessing a firearm due to a prior felony drug conviction.
