From Local Sources
FERDINAND — A man accused in a June warrant with failing to return to lawful detention was taken into custody Sunday night by the Ferdinand Police Department.
A Ferdinand officer was checking on the welfare of someone outside the Subway restaurant at 75 Industrial Park Road at 10:30 p.m. when he made contact with Elisha G. Seger, 22, 4677 S. State Road 162, Huntingburg. Police said the subject of the welfare check had gotten out of a Chevrolet Venture van driven by Seger.
The officer determined Seger had an outstanding warrant for Level 6 felony failing to return to lawful detention. During a search of his person, police said, Seger was found to allegedly be in possession of marijuana.
Court records allege that, on June 16, while serving a court-ordered sentence on work release, Seger failed to both report to work and return to the Dubois County Community Corrections Center. A warrant for his arrest was issued out of Dubois Circuit Court on June 19.
Authorities booked Seger into the Dubois County Security Center at 11:02 p.m. Sunday on the outstanding warrant and on a preliminary misdemeanor count of marijuana possession.
