Grand jury indictments have been issued against three men arrested for drug possession in Washington last summer.

By law, grand jury indictments remain sealed until suspects in a case are arrested.

One suspect, Tate D. Montgomery-Smith, 19, Washington, was arrested last week on the indictment charging him with felony possession of heroin and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor.

Indicted on those same charges but arrested earlier were Michael T. Creason, 21, Washington, and Carl V. Flint, 20, of Cedar Hill.

Those three suspects and a fourth man were arrested by Washington police during an investigation Aug. 27, 2013.

According to a probable cause statement filed in court, two Washington patrolmen went to Sir Williams Trailer Court that night in response to a complaint of a strong chemical odor that appeared to be coming from a trailer where a meth lab was seized previously.

As the officers were approaching the trailer, they saw a gold-colored car pull up and could see four men inside with the dome light on.

The officers then arrested the suspects and seized some suspected heroin and drug paraphernalia, according to the statement.

A Missouri Highway Patrol lab technician confirmed that the substance seized was heroin.

During questioning, the suspects admitted to injecting heroin earlier that day and said they were in the process of shooting up again when they were caught by police, according to the statement.

Bond for all three men was set at $25,000 each.

As of Tuesday, Montgomery-Smith and Creason remained in the county jail in lieu of posting bond.

The fourth man arrested in the incident has not been charged yet, Prosecuting Attorney Bob Parks said this week.
