Tippecanoe Men Arrested, After Suspected Meth Found during Traffic Stop

Editor’s Note: The original news release from the Marshall County Police Department included a mugshot of a different Richard Hensley, not the individual mentioned in the arrest report. The original release also gave the incorrect age for the Hensley suspect. A previous version of this story on this website contained the incorrect mugshot and age. The Marshall County Police Department has since sent an updated press release with the correct photo. Department officials also said in an email, “We would like to personally apologize for any inconvenience we have caused with the elder 66 Richard Hensley.” This story has since been updated to reflect the corrections.

A Thursday morning traffic stop led to the arrest of two Tippecanoe men. Marshall County Police say it happened around 12:45 a.m. near the intersection of Center Street and State Road 331.

Officers say the driver, Gabriel Levon Geldner, 41, appeared to be under the influence of a controlled substance. Police say they found a substance believed to be methamphetamine, along with drug paraphernalia.

Geldner was then taken to a hospital for a certified chemical test. He was arrested for possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, and operating while intoxicated.

Meanwhile, Richard A. Hensley, 49, was arrested for possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
