The officer, along with an Indiana Conversation officer, found Branham sitting in the truck with a bag. Branham told police he was just resting, but told the conservation officer a different story.

Officers had Branham step out of his truck and they patted him down. That is when they found he had a knife, an the pills in his pocket that he did not have a prescription for. They also found a loaded double-barrel shotgun and a muzzleloader in the back of his truck and meth, drug paraphernalia and more pills in his truck.
