I-64 stop brings marijuana arrest

From Local Sources


FERDINAND — A Wednesday afternoon traffic stop west of the Ferdinand exit on I-64 resulted in a marijuana arrest.

An Indiana State Police trooper stopped an eastbound vehicle driven by Paul C. Sisco, 21, Henderson, Kentucky, at 1:10 p.m. because Sisco was allegedly driving 82 mph in the 70 mph zone near I-64’s 62-mile marker.

During the traffic stop, the trooper reported smelling the odor of marijuana before locating a bag with plant material that tested positive for THC.

Authorities booked Sisco into the Dubois County Security Center at 2:04 p.m. on a preliminary Level 6 felony count of marijuana possession. Police noted the preliminary charge was enhanced to a felony because of a prior conviction for marijuana possession.
