Crothersville man arrested on Jennings County warrant

A Crothersville man was arrested early Saturday morning after a traffic stop led to the discovery that he was wanted on a Jennings County warrant, according to a news release from Jackson County Sheriff Rick Meyer.

Besides the warrant, county Officer Kevin Settle arrested Daniel Kiste, 59, on charges of possession of methamphetamine and possession of marijuana as a result of the traffic stop.

That stop, which occurred at about 1:26 a.m., occurred when Settle stopped a vehicle due to a possibly impaired driver in the Seymour area.

Kiste was driving that vehicle, and after it was determined he wasn’t intoxicated, Settle decided to release him.

During the stop, however, Settle had checked Kiste’s license by his operating license number and no warrants were found in his name.

After he was released, Settle reported he looked at Kiste’s history and found he was wanted on a Jennings County warrant. That occurred after checking Kiste’s record by date of birth and his name came up as being wanted.

Settle and Officer Billy Dishman located Kiste at a residence in the 5000 block of East County Road 100S and placed him under arrest for the Jennings County warrant.

During his arrest, officers were able to find a cigarette pack with marijuana and methamphetamine, police said. 

Kiste was booked into the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown at 2:01 a.m. Saturday and later released to Jennings County.
