Hunt for suspect leads to drug charges

The search for a man wanted in connection with a shooting incident near Crothersville led police to the arrests of four people on unrelated drug charges Wednesday.

Around 4 a.m., the Indiana State Police served a search warrant at a residence on Oard Springs Road in rural Scott County in an attempt to round up the suspect in a shooting that occurred early Tuesday.

Instead of finding the suspected shooter, police arrested William Robert Waldon, 29, of Austin, and Ashley Nicole Vernon, 25, of Scottsburg, on drug charges.
