A Columbus man is facing a number of felony charges after allegedly trying to elude police. At approximately 4:40 p.m. on Tuesday, officers from the Columbus Police Department’s Intelligence Led Policing Unit tried to stop a vehicle on Terrace Lake Road being driven by 27-year-old Daniel C. Miller. Police say Miller refused to pull over. The pursuit continued until Miller’s vehicle stopped in front of his home in the 4100 block of County Road 25 South a few minutes later. A high risk traffic stop was conducted and Miller was taken into custody without incident.

Miller was wanted on an outstanding Bartholomew County warrant for Dealing Methamphetamine, Neglect of a Dependent, Possession of a Narcotic Drug, Maintaining a Common Nuisance and Dealing Marijuana. When Miller was transported to the Bartholomew County Jail, officers reported finding methamphetamine and a controlled substance concealed in his clothing.

A search warrant for Miller’s home was later granted and officers located a large amount of drug paraphernalia inside the home. This includes digital scales, syringes and drug packaging materials.

Miller is facing new preliminary charges of Resisting Law Enforcement with a Vehicle, Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Possession of a Legend Drug and Trafficking with an Inmate

Miller remains behind bars on a 48-hour hold as the investigation continues.
