Tribune Staff Reports

Jennings County Sheriff’s Department deputies arrested a Seymour woman after a vehicle chase early Friday morning.

Sgt. Cody Low attempted to stop a 2003 green Saturn sport utility vehicle on Country Manor near Stoningham Way for multiple traffic infractions at 3:06 a.m. Friday, said Chief Deputy David Turner.

Low activated his lights when attempting to stop the vehicle, but the vehicle did not stop. The driver, later identified as Meredith Miller, 27, of Seymour, turned onto Rothshire Circle and attempted to elude Low, Turner said.

Miller then threw a bag from the vehicle and continued, Turner said.

Other deputies arrived to assist, and Miller’s vehicle came to a stop, Turner said. Low sent K-9 Axel to the vehicle and gave verbal commands for the driver to exit the vehicle, Turner said. Miller complied and was taken into custody.

The bag that was thrown from the vehicle was located and found to contain multiple syringes, heroin and methamphetamine, Turner said. Inside the vehicle, deputies located numerous syringes and other paraphernalia, Turner said.

Miller was transported to the Jennings County Jail on the preliminary charges of felony resisting law enforcement, felony possession of a syringe, felony possession of methamphetamine, felony possession of a controlled substance, felony obstruction of justice, misdemeanor reckless driving and misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia.

Miller was being held in the Jennings County Jail in lieu of $3,155 bond.
