According to reports from the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department a deputy was called at about 6:12 p.m. Friday evening to the area of County Road 700S and 100W about a car sitting across from a mobile home. When a man standing beside the car saw the patrol car, he fled into the trailer.

Deputies made several attempts at getting the names of the people at the scene and were given false information, but police dog Diesel alerted to the smell of narcotics inside the vehicle. Nearly 20 syringes were recovered as well as a spoon and other paraphernalia.
