(SHOALS) - Two Lawrence County residents were jailed on multiple charges after fleeing from an Indiana State trooper.

Police arrested 24-year-old Jeremiah D. Zollman of Bedford on charges of resisting law enforcement with a vehicle, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. They also arrested 23-year-old Miranda N. Houston of Mitchell on charges of false informing, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

At 1:33 p.m. Sunday, Senior Trooper Jarrod Lents was patrolling U.S. 50 west of Shoals when he observed a red Plymouth Neon traveling at a high rate of speed and without a license plate. After Lents turned on his emergency lights and attempted to pull the Plymouth over, the driver accelerated out of sight.

Lents, after not immediately locating the vehicle, believed that the driver had turned onto Peeks Road off of U.S. 50.

Lents drove down Peeks Road to Sanders Lane, both of which are dead end roads, and waited to see if the Plymouth would return towards US 50.

Moments later, the Plymouth approached Lents on Sanders Lane. Lents activated his emergency lights again and blocked the Plymouth from driving around him.

The driver, Zollman of Bedford, was immediately placed into custody without incident. Lents learned through his investigation that Zollman was in fact attempting to flee from him because the car did not have a license plate.

While searching the Plymouth, Lents found drug paraphernalia and marijuana tucked between the seat of the car in a location that both Zollman and his passenger, Houston, could have accessed it.

They were lodged in the Martin County Jail without incident and held on no bond.

Lents was assisted by the Martin County Sheriff's Department.
