(UNDATED) - A man on the run from Floyd County authorities and the Indiana State Police is also wanted by Washington County law enforcement.
On September 3, an ISP trooper stopped a black Jeep on Interstate 265 for a false and fictitious license plate. After a short pursuit, the driver stopped the Jeep and immediately fled on foot into a wooded area along Interstate 265.
But, when the driver stopped the Jeep, he did not put it in park and the trooper had to catch up with the rolling vehicle, jump in and put it in park. By this time the male, now identified as 40-year-old Ronald F. Graham had disappeared.
After the trooper got the vehicle stopped he noticed a female, 26-year-old Laura R. Faulkenburg, from New Albany, lying in the front passenger seat.
During a search of the Jeep police found meth.
Faulkenburg was arrested on charges of possession of meth, possession of a schedule II controlled substance and trafficking with an Inmate.
Police are still looking for Graham. His last known address was 222 West Market Street, New Albany. An arrest warrant was issued out of the Floyd County Superior Court for the charges of possession of meth and resisting/fleeing law enforcement.
Captain Roger Newlon of the Washington County Sheriff's Department, says the department received credible information that Graham was in the county Tuesday night but left and is assumed to be back in Floyd County.
Newlon says Graham has been spending time in the Pekin area and is wanted on a Washington County warrant for twice violating his probation.
Anyone who knows the whereabouts or sees Graham should contact the police immediately. All callers can remain anonymous.
Crime Stoppers is also offering a reward up to $1,000 for the capture of Ronald F. Graham. You can contact Crime Stoppers at 502-582-CLUE, (2583).
