Domestic disturbance leads to drug arrests in Sellersburg

Drugs and paraphernalia in home

SELLERSBURG — Three family members were arrested after one of them called police because of a domestic disturbance, which led officers to find drugs and paraphernalia in the home.

Sellersburg Police Department Cpl. Daniel Cotton said he and Officer Kenneth King responded to the call of a domestic disturbance just before 10 p.m. Tuesday night in the 200 block of Kahl Court.

When they arrived on the scene, Michael A. Soeder, 53, the father of Michael A. Soeder, 29, and Samantha A. Soeder, 18, — who are siblings — were involved in an argument. And when police went to the home, they spotted marijuana on a fireplace mantle.

All three were arrested and charged with marijuana possession.

Cotton said police subsequently obtained a search warrant for the property after the three family members were taken to Michael L. Becher Adult Correctional Complex. He said police returned to the home around 1 a.m. and searched the home.

Police found drugs and paraphernalia throughout the home, including several hypodermic needles, more marijuana, smoking pipes and pills — which are believed to be a generic version of Adderall, a schedule II controlled substance.

All three were initially charged with possession of a needle or syringe, possession of a controlled substance, both class D felonies, and possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia, both class A misdemeanors.

The maximum penalty for the charges is eight years and prison and $30,000 in fines.

There are no listings for the Soeders regarding this case on online court records.
