EVANSVILLE, Ind. - Authorities say investigators seized 14 pounds of methamphetamine after two men tried to flee officers by driving between houses in a neighborhood near Evansville.
The Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Department says investigators received a tip about Arizona drug traffickers coming to the Evansville area. Police say the men made an exchange at a Gibson County gas station on Saturday and fled when officers tried to stop them in northern Vanderburgh County.
The Evansville Courier & Press and WFIE-TV report the men ran from their car in a subdivision. One was caught within minutes while the other was arrested several hours later. A semitrailer driver with whom they made the exchange was also arrested.
Police found 5 pounds of meth in men's car and 9 pounds of meth in the semi.
