VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) – Five people are behind bars after a multi-agency drug bust in Vigo County.

On Saturday, Indiana State Police, with help from the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Vigo County Drug Task Force wrapped up a four month investigation that authorities say dismantled a meth organization based in Terre Haute.

Police arrested 35-year-old Marcus Pizzola, 32-year-old Stacy Holden, 54-year-old Robert Richey Jr., 42-year-old Steven Scank and 48-year-old Jon Bryan.

Police say Pizzola was transporting meth and marijuana from Atlanta, Ga. into Vigo County.

During the investigation, police found that over the last eight months, Pizzola distributed more than 50 pounds of meth locally, with a value of $1.1 million.

All five were preliminarily charged with dealing meth, and were being held in the Vigo County Jail.
