HUNTINGBURG — Police arrested an alleged train-jumper this afternoon.
The Huntingburg Police Department was asked at 2:15 p.m. to assist Norfolk Southern Railroad in reference to a man reported to have jumped aboard one of its train railcars.
Upon arrival, officers and Norfolk Southern personnel walked the line and located Travis S. Miller, 30, of Centralia, Ill., resting in a railcar.
