POSEY CO, Ind (WEHT) – Around 3:30 Saturday afternoon a state trooper clocked a black 2020 Dodge Durango going 98 mph near the 12 mile-marker on eastbound I-64 in Posey County.

The trooper tried to pull the vehicle over and it eventually stopped at the 19.5 mile-marker on I-64 E. When the vehicle pulled over, police say the driver threw out a large black bag that contained two pounds of marijuana and two pounds of crystal meth. The driver then sped off, continuing south on I-69 before exiting west onto Boonville New Harmony Road and then onto several different county roads before taking US 41 N to I-64 W.

The methamphetamine has a street value of approximately $90,000.

Posey County deputies deployed stop sticks along I-64 E at the 4 mile-marker. The vehicle struck them but continued driving, eventually crossing into Illinois and continuing west. The pursuit was terminated.

Troopers in Illinois are aware of the situation but have been unable to locate the vehicle.

Anyone with information should contact the Indiana State Police at 812-867-2079.
