Leach was indicted on one count each of driving under the influence, fourth offense, possession of a schedule IV controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, evading arrest and driving on a revoked license during events allegedly occurring on Dec. 30, 2017.

A true bill was returned on Harlie Slagle, 46, and Nicole Samaniego, 45, who were indicted on one count each of possession of more than .5 grams of methamphetamine with the intent to sell and one count each of possession of a schedule II and a schedule VI controlled substances with the intent to sell during incidents allegedly occurring on June 8.

A true bill was returned on Joseph Rutherford, 28, indicted on one count each of resisting arrest and tampering with evidence during events allegedly occurring on March 4, 2018.

An indictment does not indicate guilt. An indictment does indicate that the grand jury found enough evidence to warrant turning the case over for trial.
