From Local Sources
FERDINAND — The Ferdinand Police Department’s dealings with a Kentucky man eventually resulted in his arrest Monday night.
Ferdinand police located a white Chrysler Town & Country van in a ditch on South Industrial Park Road, east of Scenic Industrial Road, at 9:15 p.m. The vehicle was not damaged but was stuck in heavy mud in the ditch.
Police located the driver, Kevin R. Funk, 41, Louisville, Kentucky, at the McDonald’s restaurant at 25 Industrial Park Road.
Funk told police he was not paying attention and drove down into the ditch.
Police say the investigation determined the van’s plates had been revoked and the vehicle had no valid insurance. Ferdinand police issued two tickets and had Funk’s van towed by a Berg’s Garage wrecker.
Then, at 10:35 p.m., police say Funk went into the Circle A Food Mart at 460 Main St., near I-64, and asked the clerk for cigarettes. After the clerk carded Funk and returned his license, police said, the Louisville man took off with the $6.29 pack of Marlboro Special Select cigarettes and ran outside.
Ferdinand police who were in the parking lot took Funk into custody.
Authorities booked Funk into the Dubois County Security Center at 11:07 p.m. on a preliminary misdemeanor count of criminal conversion.
