Wanted North Vernon man arrested in Jackson County

Correction: Due to a source error, the suspect’s last name was incorrect in a previous version of this story.

A wanted North Vernon man was arrested early Thursday morning in Jackson County. Jackson County Sheriff’s deputies made the stop at about 4:30 a.m. after a car without working headlights or taillights was spotted turning south on Meadowbrook Drive from East Tipton Street in Seymour.

Authorities say that the driver, 33-year-old Calin R. Thomas, initially gave deputies a fake name and identification. It was then learned that he had an active felony warrant out of Jennings County for Residential Entry and Criminal Trespass. During the arrest Thomas allegedly tried to resist officers, but was quickly detained.

Thomas is facing new preliminary charges of False Reporting, False Identity Statement and Resisting Law Enforcement. He is also being held on the Jennings County warrant.
