GREENFIELD — Three people face felony charges after investigators found drugs — including jello infused with THC — in their home while first-responders were treating an overdose victim, according to reports.
Prosecutors recently filed multiple drug-related charges against two men and a woman living at 6331 W. County Road 100N, Greenfield. The trio was arrested Friday.
Their arrests come after one of the defendants, Lewis C. Gill, 29, overdosed in January, according to charging documents. At the time, he was taken to an Indianapolis hospital for treatment and later released.
When deputies responded to the 911 call at the home in January, they could smell marijuana inside and asked the other defendants, Alison Hartman, 30, and James E. Gill, 27, if there were drugs in the home, court records state.

Hartman told deputies they had a bag of marijuana in the home, and James Gill showed them some paraphernalia, including a bong and two syringes, police said.
Hartman and James Gill wouldn’t allow police to search the rest of the house or the garage, so investigators asked a judge for a search warrant, according to charging documents.
During the search, police found evidence that indicated drugs were being used inside and sold from the home, documents state.
They found a large sum of cash in the bedroom Hartman and Lewis Gill share, a box of plastic bags used to package marijuana for sale and a small scale with drug residue on it, according to court documents.
Police also found jello infused with THC, one of the main ingredients in marijuana, a spoon with cocaine residue left on it and bagged marijuana, charging records state.
Lewis Gill is charged with maintaining a common nuisance and possession of a syringe, both Level 6 felonies; dealing marijuana, a Class A misdemeanor; possession of marijuana, a Class B misdemeanor; and possession of paraphernalia, a Class C misdemeanor.
James Gill and Hartman face charges of maintaining a common nuisance and possession of a syringe, both Level 6 felonies; possession of marijuana, a Class B misdemeanor; and possession of paraphernalia, a Class C misdemeanor.
The group appeared in court for the first time Friday, where all three defendants pleaded not guilty. They’ve since been released from jail on bond.
They’re expected to appear in court again in June.
