Two people arrested after Martin County chase

MARTIN COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) – Two Lawrence County residents are behind bars after fleeing from police in Martin County.

It happened Sunday afternoon on U.S. 50 just west of Shoals.

An Indiana State Police trooper said they saw a red Plymouth Neon being driven by 24-year-old Jeremiah Zollman speeding without a license plate.

The trooper tried to pull him over, which caused Zollman to drive faster. After giving chase, Zollman ended up on a dead-end road.

The trooper waited at the end of the road to see if he would return back towards U.S. 50. A few minutes later, Zollman came back towards the trooper. The trooper blocked his car.

Police said they searched the car and found drug paraphernalia and marijuana in between the seats.

Police also arrested a passenger in the car, 23-year-old Miranda Houston from Mitchell, Indiana.

Zollman was charged with resisting law enforcement with a vehicle.

Both Zollman and Houston are also facing multiple drug charges.
