JASPER — The Jasper Police Department arrested a Crawford County man Monday on preliminary drug charges and outstanding warrants after he was spotted at Walmart by an off-duty Dubois County Sheriff’s Department deputy.
The off-duty deputy spotted Derek Sigrest, 37, Marengo, at the store at 3:22 p.m.
Sigrest was known to the deputy, and the officer also knew that he had active warrants out of Crawford and Harrison counties.
The deputy contacted Jasper police and made contact with Sigrest, urging him to not leave so that he could clear up his warrant issues.
Police said Sigrest did attempt to flee as uniformed officers closed in but he was detained in the parking lot.
Sigrest had been an occupant in a vehicle where police allegedly located methamphetamine, heroin and drug paraphernalia that included a smoking pipe.
Authorities took Sigrest into custody on his outstanding warrants and new preliminary local charges that included Level 6 felony counts of methamphetamine possession, possession of a narcotic drug and misdemeanor counts of paraphernalia possession and resisting law enforcement.
