Indiana State Police received information Tuesday night concerning the possible whereabouts of Jalen Packer, 29, of Princeton.

An arrest warrant had been issued for Packer for various drug related charges.

ISP and Princeton Police responded to 310 South 4th Street in Princeton to attempt to locate and arrest Packer. After officers arrived at the residence, they detected a strong odor of marijuana. Officers knocked on the door, but there was no answer.

While officers waited for a search warrant, Dustin Duncan, 28, and Kera Watt, 23, both from Princeton, exited the residence and were detained. Once the search warrant was served, officers entered the residence and found Packer hiding inside the bathroom. Packer was arrested without further incident.

A search of the residence revealed several baggies of marijuana, a baggie of meth, several baggies of various pills, drug paraphernalia, and a digital scale. After discovering the drug items, officers then arrested Watt and Duncan.

All three were transported to the Gibson County Jail where they are currently being held on bond.
