This past Monday evening, trooper Kevin Bowling of the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg was driving on Voyles Road in Pekin when a female flagged him down advising she had allegedly been battered.
For further investigation, Trooper Bowling and other officers went to 8788 Voyles Road in Pekin where the alleged batterer, William A. McCarty, 36, was living. After speaking to him he was arrested for Strangulation and Battery. He was transported and incarcerated at the Washington County Jail.
While officers were at the residence on Voyles Road they came in contact with a female named Carol Martin, 55, from South Martinsburg Road in Salem. She was visiting the residence and after officers ran a check on her, they were advised she was wanted out of Washington County on an outstanding arrest warrant. She was also taken into custody and incarcerated at the Washington County Jail.
Continuing the investigation at the residence, Trooper Bowling and other officers were able to obtain enough information to get a search warrant for the residence. During a search of the residence items were located that are commonly used in the making of Methamphetamine.
The actual homeowner, Joseph D. Sizemore, was already incarcerated at the Washington County Jail on unrelated charges at the time of the search warrant. He was charged with the additional charges from the search warrant of Possession of Chemical Precursors for the Manufacturing of Methamphetamine, Possession of Methamphetamine, Maintaining a Common Nuisance, Unlawful Possession of a Syringe and Possession of Paraphernalia.
William A. McCarty was also charged with the additional charges of Possession of Chemical Precursors for the Manufacturing of Methamphetamine, Maintaining a Common Nuisance, Unlawful Possession of a Syringe and Possession of Paraphernalia.
