Seymour woman facing five felonies after arrest

A Seymour woman was arrested after an early-morning traffic stop on Friday.

Chief Deputy David Turner with the Jennings County Sheriff’s Department, says that shortly after 3 a.m. Sgt. Cody Low tried to stop an SUV on Country Manor near Stoningham Way for multiple traffic infractions. However, the vehicle failed to stop and turned onto Rothshire Circle. Sgt Low reported that the driver then threw a bag from the vehicle. The suspect finally stopped the vehicle when assisting deputies arrived.

The bag that was thrown from the vehicle was located and found to contain multiple syringes, heroin and methamphetamine. When deputies checked the vehicle, they reported finding numerous syringes and other paraphernalia.
