TRACTOR DEAL: Local man accused of selling meth in fields

December 5, 2012


COLUMBIA CITY — A South Whitley man appeared in Whitley County Circuit Court for an initial hearing Monday after allegedly dealing methamphetamine from a tractor in March and April.

Gerald Michel, 19, was arrested Nov. 11 after two arranged buys turned up evidence of one gram of methamphetamine.

Between the two buys, Michel was paid $100 for zipper bags containing a white crystal substance, later identified as methamphetamine.

According to a Whitley County Drug Task Force case report, Michel made the deals March 20 and April 19 in fields along Ind. 205 and Ind. 5 — meeting the buyer with his tractor and making one full pass through the fields during each buy.
