The Indiana Court of Appeals travels to Terre Haute Oct. 19 to hear arguments in an interlocutory appeal of a drug case in which the defendant claims the trial court abused its discretion in denying her motion to suppress.
In Brea Rice v. State of Indiana, No. 55A04-0902-CR-99, Brea Rice was arrested for Class D felony possession of methamphetamine and Class A misdemeanor possession of marijuana as a result of evidence discovered during execution of a search warrant for receiving stolen property. The arrest warrant was issued after police, executing a search warrant at the residence Rice rented, saw a motorcycle helmet in the garage that was later determined to be stolen.
Arguments begin at 1 p.m. in the Hulman Memorial Student Union of Indiana State University, at North 5th and Chestnut streets, Terre Haute. Chief Judge John Baker, and Judges L. Mark Bailey and Margret Robb are scheduled to hear the case.
