Huntingburg man arrested in Princeton

From Local Sources

PRINCETON — A Huntingburg man was one of two people taken into custody Sunday night during an extra patrol at the Walmart Supercenter in Princeton.

A Gibson County Sheriff’s Office deputy on the extra patrol at 8:55 p.m. observed a green 1997 GMC Sonoma pickup truck with an open door. The deputy ran the vehicle’s plate and learned it returned to a silver 2002 Honda Accord.

The deputy initiated a traffic stop once the driver returned to the vehicle and pulled away.

That driver, David S. Johnson, 44, 409 E. 12th St., Huntingburg, admitted he did not have a valid operator’s license and stated he had a writ of attachment issued for his arrest out of Dubois County, according to the sheriff’s office.

A passenger in the vehicle, 41-year-old Jamie Manning of Winslow, was found in possession of drug paraphernalia, according to police.

Both vehicle occupants were transported to the Gibson County Jail.

Johnson was formally charged Monday with misdemeanor driving while suspended (prior) and cited for operating a motor vehicle without financial responsibility and operating a vehicle with a false plate. Manning was charged with misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia (prior).

Both have since posted bond.
