(VINCENNES) - Indiana State Police attempted to stop a 2006 Dodge Stratus at 9th Street and Harrison Street in Vincennes Sunday after receiving information the driver was wanted out of Daviess County on a felony warrant for dealing meth.

The driver 31-year-old John 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.

During the chase Wilkerson discarded his jacket and in the pockets police found meth, marijuana and paraphernalia.

Wilkerson was arrested and taken to the Knox County Jail where he is currently being held without bond.
