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.
Police said Miller told them he fell asleep on a train in Illinois and ended up in Huntingburg. He switched trains, which is when he was spotted by railroad employees.
Miller was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor count of criminal trespassing on railroad property. Authorities booked Miller into the Dubois County Security Center.
Norfolk Southern rail police assisted.
