On Thursday, January 31st at approximately 3:00 p.m., deputies from the Vanderburgh Sheriff's Office responded to 2740 Corona Drive in regards to a complaint of an odor of marijuana coming from the building.

Upon arrival, deputies say they could smell a strong odor inside the building but were unable to determine which apartment it was coming from.

Deputies brought in a K-9 unit which indicated the odor was originating from Apartment "A".

With several attempts to contact the residents, deputies did finally contact Jasmine T. Coit, who lives in the apartment and was present. When deputies questioned Coit about the smell of marijuana, Coit admitted to smoking marijuana but stated none was left in the apartment. Officials say Coit did give consent to search the apartment. Prior to searching the residence, a Jacob N. Durre, arrived and stated he too resided at the apartment.

Deputies say the K-9 unit then conducted a search of the apartment which led them to a dresser drawer in a back bedroom. Officials say when they searched the dresser, they recovered 3 baggies of marijuana weighing approximately 15 grams and smoking paraphernalia.

In another drawer, deputies say they recovered sandwich baggies with loose $1 bills and a shoe box which contained a large amount of currency. Deputies say they also located a bag in the closet which contained a large amount of currency. Additionally, deputies located a piece of mail underneath the currency belonging to Durre. A total of $48,408.00 was recovered.

Authorities say Durre and Coit then allowed deputies to search their four vehicles. Deputies recovered two handguns and ammunition from the trunk of one vehicle along with narcotics paraphernalia.

Investigators with the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and the Evansville-Vanderburgh Joint Narcotics Task Force (JTF) were called to assist at the scene.

Detectives continued the investigation at two storage units Durre rented near South Green River Road and Fickas Road. Inside the storage units, detectives say they found a large bucket which contained approximately two pounds of suspected K2 along with paraphernalia to distribute the substance.

Durre was placed under arrest and transported to the Vanderburgh County Confinement Center and Coit was issued a citation.

The investigation is ongoing and future criminal charges are pending.
