HUNTINGBURG — Indiana State Police took a woman into custody early Sunday on preliminary, drug-related charges after a traffic stop.
A trooper stopped a vehicle driven by Melony R. Fowler, 40, who has no current address, at 12:20 a.m. after noticing the vehicle had an inoperable headlight as it was being driven at U.S. 231 and Phoenix Drive.
