Two rural Angola men arrested following a drug investigation.

Two rural Angola men were taken into custody following a drug investigation in the 900 block of east CR 300 N. On 08/09/2017 just after 10:00 am, the Steuben County Sheriff’s Office went to a rural Pleasant Township home on CR 300 N near SR 827 to investigate a tip concerning possible drug activity. Responding Sheriff’s deputies and detectives were able to make contact with the occupants of the residence and through the course of the investigation, obtained and executed a search warrant on the property. The subsequent search yielded suspected drug related items and over $30,000.00 in cash which were seized. Following the search, 33 year old Noah J. Parnell and his brother 30 year old Luke A. Parnell both of Angola, were taken into custody without incident and booked into the Steuben County Jail. The elder Parnell was charged with misdemeanor possession of Marijuana and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. The younger Parnell was charged with felony possession of a legend drug, felony dealing in Marijuana, misdemeanor possession of Marijuana, and misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia. Both men posted 10% of a cash bond and were released. The incident remains under investigation by the Sheriff’s Office. Assisting the Sheriff’s Office in the investigation were the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Angola Police Department.
