Mother, son busted for meth

A mother and son have been arrested for meth production. On September 5, the Ripley County Sheriff’s Office, with the assistance of the Indiana State Police Meth Suppression Team, arrested Joshua Moody, 27, for allegedly manufacturing methamphetamine at his residence in Holton. He has been charged with Manufacturing Methamphetamine, a Level 3 Felony and Possession of Methamphetamine, a Level 6 Felony.

As a result of the investigation, James Parker, 19, and Cathy Thackery (Moody’s mother), 49, were also arrested. Parker, of Milan, has been charged with Possession of Methamphetamine, a Level 6 Felony and Sale or Transfer of Precursor, a Level 6 Felony. Cathy Thackery has been charged with Sale or Transfer of Precursor, a Level 6 Felony. The crime of Sale or Transfer of Precursor is defined by the Indiana Code as the selling, transferring, distributing, or furnishing a chemical agent or precursor to another with knowledge or the intent that the other person will use the chemical reagent or precursor to manufacture methamphetamine. Parker posted bond and is out of jail, but Moody and Thackery remain in the Ripley County Jail.
