Man faces felony charges



A police investigation that lasted more than a year led to the arrest Friday of a North Vernon man on charges he was in possession of stolen guns and had been dealing drugs.

Maj. Jerry Shepherd and Lt. Brian Talkington with the Jennings County Sheriff’s Department launched that investigation in February 2013.
