Three people were arrested Wednesday evening in Jennings County by police called to a home to investigate a report of a stolen vehicle being spotted.

The three Madison residents, Quinton C. Isenhower, 19, Miranda N. Lauderbaugh, 33, and Matthew L. Giltner, 29, all face preliminary charges of possession of methamphetamine, a Level 6 felony, and possession of a paraphernalia, a Class C misdemeanor.

The trio were arrested by Officer Thomas Mellencamp and Officer Craig Hahn after they went to a residence in the 10000 block of South County Road 200 West near Paris Crossing in Jennings County and found the stolen vehicle.
