An arrest warrant service ended with the arrests of two Jackson County residents. Sgt. Andrew Richmond, spokesman for the North Vernon Police Department, says that at about 7 a.m. Tuesday, officers received information about a possible location of a wanted person. He says that Officer Lucas Newsom and Detective Ivory Sandefur followed up on information that 34-year-old Brian Willman, of Seymour, was in an apartment in the 500 block of Brownstown Road.

Authorities say that Willman was found in the apartment. While taking Willman into custody, officers observed drug paraphernalia in plain view in the room he was in. A search of the room allegedly uncovered 1.5 grams of methamphetamine, eight methamphetamine smoking pipes and a set of digital scales among other drug paraphernalia.

Willman was arrested along with another occupant of the room, 27-year-old Kayleana Tungate, also of Seymour. Along with Willman’s outstanding warrant, the pair are facing preliminary charges of Possession of Methamphetamine and Possession of Paraphernalia.
