Seymour-Wednesday morning, a trooper with the Indiana State Police-Versailles Post stopped a vehicle on I-65 in northern Jackson County for traveling in excess of 100 mph.  Following a brief investigation, two juvenile occupants of the vehicle were arrested on various charges.

At approximately 10:00 am, Master Trooper Randel Miller stopped a white Acura on I-65 Southbound near the 55-mile marker for traveling 111 mph in a 70 mph zone.  The vehicle was being driven by a 17-year-old male juvenile from Crothersville, Indiana.  A 16-year-old male juvenile from Seymour, Indiana was a passenger in the vehicle.    

During further investigation, the driver was found to be in possession of an alcoholic beverage and a look-a-like marijuana substance.  Two realistic looking fake firearms were also found in the vehicle.  The 17-year-old was arrested on initial charges of reckless driving, possession of an alcoholic beverage by a minor, and dealing in a look-a-like substance.

The 16-year-old was found to be a missing/wanted person.  The juvenile was wanted on felony charges of burglary with a deadly weapon, robbery, and failure to appear. 

Both juveniles were transported to the Jackson County Jail where they were initially remanded to the custody of the jail staff before being transported to a juvenile detention facility to be held pending court appearances.

Master Trooper Miller was assisted by Sergeant Stephen Wheeles and Master Trooper Jason Hankins.
