Indiana State Police K-9 Apprehends Wanted Washington Man The Indiana State Police attempted to stop a 2006 Dodge Stratus at 9th Street and Harrison Street in Vincennes Sunday night after receiving information the driver was wanted out of Daviess County on a felony warrant for dealing methamphetamine.
The driver, 31 year-old John Q. Wilkerson of Washington, failed to stop and fled south on 9th Street. After a brief chase on several area streets, Wilkerson stopped and fled on foot.
Trooper Seth Rainey and his K-9 “Teague” arrived and tracked Wilkerson nearly five blocks before they found him hiding on a porch in the 800 block of Broadway. Rainey and his K-9 continued to search for Wilkerson’s jacket that he discarded while fleeing from police. The jacket was later found in an alley between Buntin and Broadway.
A search of the jacket revealed methamphetamine, marijuana and paraphernalia
Wilkerson was arrested and booked Possession of Meth, Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, Resisting Law Enforcement, and a Warrant out of Daviess County for Dealing in Methamphetamine. He was booked without bail in the Knox County Jail.
