On Tuesday just after 9:30 p.m. Indiana State Trooper Seth Davidson was patrolling on State Road 250 in Jackson County when he noticed two vehicles parked on County Road 300 South just off State Road 250.
Trooper Davidson says there are no homes in that area, so he went to investigate. When he approached the area one of the vehicle a Dodge Ram pickup turned on its lights and pulled away.
The trooper followed and noticed the truck had an expired license plate. Trooper Davidson traffic stop and found the driver 30-year-old Joseph Evans, of Seymour, had a suspended driver’s license and he had a false registration for the vehicle.
During a search of the vehicle, Davidson found a large amount of meth, drug paraphernalia and a stolen Duke Energy electric meter.
Evans was arrested on charges of possession of meth over 3 grams and drug paraphernalia and possession of stolen property.
Davidson encourages all citizens to report suspicious vehicles as those calls often result in drug arrests.
