Vallonia Man Arrested on Meth Charges

A Jackson County man has been arrested on a number of drug charges.

Jackson County Sheriff Mike Carothers says 34-year-old Charles Root, of Vallonia, was arrested Monday after a three month investigation led by Detective Ben Rudolph. Root was booked in the Jackson County Jail on felony charges of dealing in methamphetamine. He is being held pending an initial hearing in Jackson Circuit Court.

Carothers says the Seymour Police Department assisted in this investigation. He added that when agencies work together, drug issues can be dealt a major blow. Carothers also gave praise to Jackson County Prosecutor Amy Marie Travis and her office for their help in "curbing the drug problems in Jackson County."
