Indiana State Police are looking for a man on the run from Floyd County officers and who could be spending some time in Washington County.
Captain Roger Newlon of the Washington County Sheriff’s Department, said the department received credible information that Ronald Graham was in the county Tuesday night. He said officers determined he had been at a location here, but had left.
Newlon said Graham had been spending time in the Pekin area and is wanted on a Washington County warrant for twice violating his probation.
On the third of this month, a trooper from the Indiana State Post at Sellersburg made a traffic stop on a black Jeep on Interstate 265 East at the 3.8 Mile Marker in Floyd County .
The traffic stop was for a false and fictitious license plate. The driver stopped the Jeep and immediately fled on foot into a wooded area along Interstate 265.
But, when the driver stopped the car, he did not put it in park and the trooper had to catch up with the rolling vehicle to put it in park.
By this time the male, now identified as Graham, 40, a white male, 5’5” tall, with brown hair and blue eyes had disappeared. His last known address was 222 West Market Street, New Albany, IN.
An arrest warrant for Ronald F. Graham was issued out of the Floyd County Superior Court for the charges of Possession of Methamphetamine, D Felony and Resisting/Fleeing Law Enforcement, A Misdemeanor.
After the trooper got the vehicle stopped he noticed a female, identified as Laura R. Faulkenburg, 26, from New Albany, IN, lying in the front passenger seat.
During a search of the Jeep Methamphetamine was located. The passenger, Laura Faulkenburg was arrested for Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of a Schedule II Controlled Substance and Trafficking with an Inmate.
