ISP: Fort Wayne man arrested in Grant County faces criminal charges
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) - The Indiana State Police (ISP) says a Fort Wayne man was arrested in Grant County Thursday morning after a pursuit with troopers.
ISP says around 9:30 a.m., a trooper tried to stop a car driven by 20-year-old Kayson Jones after Jones was allegedly going 89 mph in a 70 mph zone on I-69 near the 21 mile-marker. Police say Jones did not stop, initiating a pursuit. The pursuit ended when the trooper used a precision immobilization technique, known as a PIT maneuver.
When officers searched the car, they allegedly found individual packages of marijuana, a 9 mm handgun, and THC vape cartridges, ISP says.
Jones is charged with resisting law enforcement, reckless driving, and possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and is in the Grant County Jail.
