(DAVIESS CO.) - An investigation into a driver leaving the scene of a property damage accident netted three arrested on drug charges.

Just before, 2:30 a.m. Saturday, Indiana State Police received a report of a gray Ford F-150 pick-up truck that had driven through a fence at 8363 North County Road 550 East, in Epsom, and left the scene.

Trooper Mitch Wier and Daviess County Deputies arrived on scene and spoke with the property owner; he informed officers of who he believed had been driving the truck.

Officers patrolled the area looking for the pickup.

At 3:14 a.m., officers located the Ford in a church parking lot in Epsom; however, the driver was gone.

While waiting for a tow-truck to impound the vehicle, an SUV slowed down on County Road 550 East to turn into the church parking lot.

After seeing officers standing near the Ford truck, the SUV sped away down CR 550 E.

Trooper Wier, believing the SUV was stopping to retrieve the Ford truck, attempted to stop the SUV by activating his emergency lights. The SUV accelerated, attempting to evade officers.

Three minutes later, the driver of the SUV turned off the vehicle's lights, pulled into a driveway just off of County Road 800 North, and stopped. After stopping, the driver and one passenger fled on foot.

Trooper Wier attempted to pursue the two on foot, but returned to secure the remaining three passengers in the vehicle.

Washington PD Officer Derrick Devine and his K-9 partner "Diesel" arrived on scene to attempt to track the two suspects.

While conducting an inventory of the SUV before impounding the vehicle, Trooper Wier located meth, hypodermic needles, and other drug paraphernalia.

The K-9 track did not locate either of the two subjects, but did recover of a purse with a large quantity of marijuana.

Officers found that the purse belonged to one of the three passengers, 20-year-old Shawna D. Campbell, of Washington. Campbell, along with the other two passengers, 18-year-old Joshua D. Stoll, of Montgomery and 31-year-old Natasha L. Graber, of Elnora, were charged and arrested for the drug materials in the vehicle.

Officers believe they have determined the identity of the subjects who fled the scene, and will file warrants for their arrest through the Daviess County Court.
