Greensburg — Five Greensburg residents have been charged with multiple felony and misdemeanor drug-related counts.

According to Charging Information filed in Decatur Circuit Court, Jeremy Lucas, 37, Krystal Dawn Sullivan, 23, Brad Sullivan 25, Donna Sullivan, 57, and Norah G. Hauk, 19, shared a residence at 304 East North Street. The five had been living in the home since Jan. 4.

Police served a warrant on the residence Jan. 28.

In the course of executing their search, police found evidence sufficient to charge Lucas with Possession of a Controlled Substance (Class C Felony); Maintaining a Common Nuisance (Class D Felony); Possession of Paraphernalia (Class D Felony); and Possession of Marijuana (Class D Felony).

Krystal Sullivan was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance (Class C Felony); Maintaining a Common Nuisance (Class D Felony); Possession of Paraphernalia (Class A Misdemeanor); and Possession of Marijuana (Class A Misdemeanor).

Brad Sullivan was charged with Maintaining a Common Nuisance (Class D Felony) and Possession of Paraphernalia (Class A Misdemeanor).

Donna Sullivan was charged with Maintaining a Common Nuisance (Class D Felony).

Hauk was charged with Visiting A Common Nuisance (Class B Misdemeanor).

According to documents, Lucas and Krystal Sullivan shared one room in the residence, while Hauk and Brad Sullivan shared another.

In the room shared by Lucas and Krystal Sullivan, police found quantities of Hydrocodone 7.5 mg pills and Alprazolam 1 mg pills, for which neither of the pair had prescriptions. Police also found marijuana, smoked marijuana residue and paraphernalia used to smoke marijuana.

Complicating Lucas’ arrest is that fact that a protective order is currently in place against him, ordering him to remain at least 1,000 feet away from Krystal Sullivan at all times. The order was issued in October when Lucas was arrested for allegedly assaulting Sullivan, who was pregnant. Sullivan sustained severe, but non-life-threatening injuries, and her fetus was unharmed.

Due to the standing order, Lucas was immediately arrested and transported to Decatur County Jail where he remains held without bond.

In the course of searching the room shared by Brad Sullivan and Hauk, police found “a metal tube containing a white powdery substance,” which police deduced to be paraphernalia used to “snort powder drugs into the human body.”

They also found smoking devices that “smelled of burnt marijuana,” “a cut plastic straw containing a white powdery residue,” syringes, and “two spoons containing a white powdery substance.” Additionally, “the bottoms of the spoons had burnt [sic] markings.”

Also complicating the search and the arrests: Donna Sullivan was caring for a 10-year-old special-needs child in the home. According to documents, although DCS was called in, the child was ultimately remanded to the custody of a family member.

Police eventually arrested the remaining four defendants, documents state, transporting all to the Decatur County Jail. All five suspects were also read their rights and interviewed, according to documents.

In the course of those interviews, police learned that the prescription Hydrocodone found at the residence was prescribed to Donna Sullivan and allegedly stolen by her daughter Krystal Sullivan.

Donna Sullivan, according to reports, expressed fear of retaliation from Lucas and his family for revealing any incriminating information about Lucas.

Additionally, in his police interview, Brad Sullivan admitted to using “prescription controlled substances and marijuana inside the residence.” He also stated that he observes a high volume of people in and out of Lucas’ room to purchase prescription controlled substances (an accusation Lucas denied in his interview). Sullivan told police that Lucas uses prescription controlled substances and marijuana (an accusation Lucas confirmed).

Hauk admitted to smoking marijuana and snorting prescription controlled substances within the residence.

Krystal Sullivan confirmed Lucas’ drug use and told police that she’s addicted to Hydrocodone and regularly crushes it into a mixture for snorting with either Clonazepam or Alprazolam “to achieve greater euphoric effects.” She told police that Lucas, in addition to his other drug use, uses those drugs in the same way. Krystal Sullivan also admitted to stealing her mother’s prescription medications.

According to officials at the Decatur County Jail, Hauk was released on bond Tuesday morning, while Donna Sullivan was released on her own recognizance.

Krystal Sullivan and Brad Sullivan, along with Lucas, remain at the Decatur County Jail, held without bond.
