Jasper traffic stop leads to execution of search warrant on area residence, arrest of two men on felony charges

(From the Jasper Police Department)

On Tuesday, March 27th, 2018 at 1305 hours. Jasper Police Department made contact with subjects in an SUV parked on Pete’s Convenience Store parking lot. Contact was made in reference to suspicious activity.

Contact was made with a female in the driver’s seat and a male in the passenger seat. The female appeared to be heavily under the influence of methamphetamine. She was arrested for an active felony warrant for possession of a controlled substance and possession of meth-related drug paraphernalia.

This arrest subsequently led to Jasper County Sheriff’s Office conducting an investigation at a residence near south of Jasper at County Rd. 160 and Madre Lane. 

After a search warrant was obtained, deputies searched the residence and seized a suspected methamphetamine lab and guns. Evan Masters was arrested on felony warrants and for creation of a controlled substance. Another person involved, Casey Gouge, could be facing drug and gun charges as well. Both Gouge and Masters are believed to be convicted felons. Masters is currently on parole in reference to felony evading and resisting arrest.

We got to work alongside members of the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office. They put some work in on this case and did an outstanding job.

Note: All persons involved are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
