(Seymour, Ind.) - On Friday, a 38-year-old Seymour, Indiana man was arrested for dealing methamphetamine following a traffic stop on the north side of Seymour.

The investigation began at approximately 1:00 p.m. when Trooper Randel Miller observed a silver 2005 Toyota traveling southbound on I-65 in northern Jackson County.  After committing a traffic violation, the vehicle exited I-65 onto State Road 11 and traveled southbound towards Seymour.  Trp. Miller caught up to the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop along State Road 11. 

During the course of the traffic stop, Trp. Miller observed indicators of criminal activity.  Trp.

The driver of the vehicle, Chad W.
