The male he spotted was 30-year-old Timothy Witten, who was wanted on a warrant in Porter County.

Witten told the officer “he believed that the warrant he had was not extraditable”.

While handcuffing Witten he dropped a white folded piece of paper at his feet. Inside the paper was crystal meth. The officers found another folded piece of paper containing meth inside Witten’s pocket.

In Witten’s car police found a syringe in the center console and a partially burned marijuana cigarette.

Witten was arrested on charges of possession of meth, possession of marijuana, unlawful possession of a syringe, and obstruction of justice.
