The robbery occurred Tuesday at 9:45 p.m., in the middle of a storm that dumped a foot of snow on Whitley County.

This fact might come as a surprise, since Whitley County’s courts are consistently tied up with methamphetamine-related cases and the Whitley County Drug Task Force focuses most of its energy on the drug.
