Yesterday, November 20th, troopers with the Indiana State Police-Versailles Post arrested two men after a large quantity of suspected methamphetamine was located during a traffic stop on I-65 in Jackson County, Indiana.
The incident began at approximately 10:30 am when Trooper Randel Miller conducted a traffic stop on a Chevrolet Impala on I-65 Northbound near the 39-mile marker, just north of Crothersville, Indiana.
During the traffic stop, Trp. Miller became suspicious that criminal activity was taking place. Trp. Miller’s Indiana State Police K-9 Jinx conducted a sweep of the exterior of the vehicle.

Both men were arrested and transported to the Jackson County Jail where they were incarcerated on numerous charges pending their initial appearances in the Jackson County Circuit Court.
