Entry Description

Dearborn County: Late yesterday afternoon state police received information that an individual in possession of a large quantity of drugs was staying in a hotel in Greensburg, IN. Greensburg Police and State Troopers set up surveillance on the hotel and the vehicle associated with the individual. Shortly before midnight a pickup truck with Ohio license plates occupied by two individuals pulled into the hotel parking lot and one individual got out of the pickup truck and got into the car, a 2009 Chevrolet Malibu with Illinois plates. Both vehicles left the parking lot together and started eastbound on I-74. As troopers followed behind, the vehicles traveled through Franklin and Ripley Counties. In Dearborn County Troopers Jimmy Wells and Chris Richey observed traffic violations and stopped both vehicles near the 163 mile marker (just west of S.R. 1). The individual in the Chevrolet Malibu fled on foot. The driver who fled on foot managed to elude police however the driver of the pickup truck, identified as 23 year old Kurt Holmes of Springdale, OH was detained. A subsequent search of the Chevrolet Malibu revealed four kilos of heroin.

A short time later troopers contacted Greensburg Police Department and officers from Greensburg PD located 32 year old Luis R. Magallon of Roselle, IL at the hotel in Greensburg and took him into custody. Magallon was transported to Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center where he is facing charges of Dealing in Heroin (Over Three Grams) and Conspiracy to Deal in Heroin, both Class A Felonies. Holmes was charged with Possession of Controlled Substance with other charges possible. The individual who fled from police during the traffic stop although not immediately apprehended, has been identified and will also be facing charges. That individual’s name is not being released at this time.

This is an ongoing investigation and this is the only information being releases at this time.

Persons arrested are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
