Hunters arrested for pot, shooting too many birds

November 23, 2011

From DailyJournal.net

Two hunters shot more birds than allowed and had drugs in their car, conservation officers said.

John David Farmer, 27, 306 N. Sims St., Swayzee, was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia and illegal bird possession.

Brian Douglas Eaton, 27, 19 Jacks St., Gas City, also was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia and illegal bird possession.

Indiana Department of Natural Resources officers stopped the pair while they were hunting at the Atterbury Fish and Wildlife Area, where they had paid to kill two pheasants each that had been stocked by a local farm.

The officers found that one of the hunters reached his daily limit of ring-necked pheasants and the other had exceeded it, but they both were walking back out into the woods with loaded shotguns, conservation officer Jon Fennig said.

Conservation officers also found drugs in their car, Fennig said.

Farmer and Douglas were taken to the Johnson County jail. Each was released on $3,000 bond.
