Just before 2:30 Saturday morning, Indiana State Police received a report of a gray Ford F-150 pick-up truck that had driven through a fence at 8363 North County Road 550 East, Epsom, and left the scene.

Trooper Mitch Wier and Daviess County Deputies arrived on scene and spoke with the property owner; he informed officers of who he believed had been driving the truck.

Officers began driving in the area near the scene of the crash, looking for the Ford. At 3:14, officers located the Ford in a church parking lot in Epsom; however, the vehicle was unoccupied.

While waiting for a tow-truck to impound the vehicle, an SUV slowed down on County Road 550 East to turn into the church parking lot. After seeing officers standing near the Ford truck, the SUV continued on CR 550 E and sped away. Trooper Wier, believing the SUV was stopping to retrieve the Ford truck, attempted to stop the SUV by activating his emergency lights. The SUV accelerated, attempting to evade officers.

Three minutes later, the driver of the SUV turned off the vehicle’s lights, pulled into a driveway just off of County Road 800 North, and stopped. After stopping, the driver and one passenger fled from the vehicle on foot. Trooper Wier attempted to pursue the two on foot, but returned to secure the remaining three passengers in the vehicle. Washington PD Officer Derrick Devine and his K-9 partner “Diesel” arrived on scene to attempt to track the two subjects.

While conducting an inventory of the SUV before impounding the vehicle, Trooper Wier located methamphetamine, hypodermic needles, and other drug paraphernalia. The K-9 track did not locate either of the two subjects, but did recover of a purse with a large quantity of marijuana.

Officers found that the purse belonged to one of the three passengers. Officers believe they have determined the identity of the subjects who fled the scene, and will file warrants for their arrest through the Daviess County Court.
