WARRICK CO., Ind. (WLFI) – Indiana Conservation officers arrested an Evansville, Ind. woman for making methamphetamine at a state park.

According to investigators, ICO Paul Crockett was patrolling the Bluegrass Fish and Wildlife Area, located in northwest Warrick County, which is about 20 miles east of Evansville, Ind.

Around 9 p.m. Sunday, Officer Crockett noticed a pickup truck parked in the north part of the property. A person was standing by the open passenger door appearing to be occupied with some sort of activity. As Crockett approached, a woman ran to some nearby shrubbery then returned to the pickup. The ensuing investigation produced drug-related materials at both the vehicle and the location in the shrubs.

DNR officers arrested Heather M. Geier, 25, from Evansville, Ind. Crockett suspected a second party was involved and called for back up. Officers set up a perimeter and deployed a K-9 unit, however, no other individual was found.

Geier was transported to the Warrick County Security Center, where she remains at this time.

Documents state that after officers obtained a search warrant for the pickup, they found complete and organized materials used for the manufacturing of methamphetamine.

Officers said the incident is still under investigation.

Heather M. Geier was arrested on the following charges:

  • Possession of precursors with intent to manufacture
  • Manufacture of methamphetamine
  • Possession of greater than 10 grams of pseudoephedrine
  • Possession of methamphetamine
