Salem Man arrested after short Pursuit

Palmyra - A Salem man was arrested on multiple charges after a brief pursuit early Thursday morning.

Shortly after two this morning, Trooper Clay Boley observed a green Honda Civic drive left of center on SR135 in Palmyra. Trooper Boley ran the license plate and the vehicle returned as a stolen vehicle from Washington County, Indiana. When Boley attempted to stop the vehicle after it turned on to Keeling Avenue, the Honda refused to stop. The car continued to a dead end on the north end of Keeling Avenue and then turned around, driving through a yard. The Honda then went south on Keeling and encountered yet another dead end. The vehicle entered a second yard and became stuck after crashing into a wooded area and a small ditch. After several unsuccessful attempts to free the car, the driver complied and was taken into custody without further incident.

The driver was identified as Levi Neil Smith, 30, of Salem, Indiana. Trooper Boley also learned Smith was wanted on a warrant out of Washington County for Invasion of Privacy.

Levi Smith was medically cleared at the Harrison County Hospital and has been preliminarily charged with the following:

1. Theft of a Motor Vehicle - Level 6 Felony
2. Resisting Law Enforcement in a Vehicle - Level 6 Felony
3. Driving while Suspended (Prior) - A Misdemeanor
4. Possession of Marijuana - B Misdemeanor

Trooper Boley was assisted at the scene by Harrison County Deputy Daniel Evans.

“All subjects are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty in a court of law”.

Two Sellersburg Troopers Recognized by Mothers Against Drunk Driving

Earlier this morning in Bloomington, the Indiana chapter of MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) recognized Trooper Justin Mears and Trooper Morgenn Evans from the Sellersburg District for their extraordinary efforts in removing impaired drivers from Indiana roadways.

National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA) data shows nearly 30 people die every day across the United States in drunk driving crashes. That staggering number averages one preventable death every 50 minutes, making the efforts of Troopers Mears and Evans even more commendable.

Trooper Mears is an 8-year veteran of the Indiana State Police(ISP). He has been recognized as one of ISP's top five OWI enforcement officers for the past three years, amassing over one hundred impaired driving arrests for each of those years. Trooper Mears is also a certified Drug Recognition Expert and Standard Field Sobriety Instructor, assisting and training other officers across the state.

Trooper Morgenn Evans has been an ISP Trooper for five years. The Indiana State Police recognized trooper Evans as a member of the top five Troopers for impaired driving arrests. In his short time as a Trooper, Evans has received the Combat Action Award and a Purple Heart, both earned during the apprehension of an impaired driver.

ISP Sellersburg Investigating Fatal Memorial Day Crash

Campbellsburg - Troopers from Indiana State Police - Sellersburg are investigating a fatal car versus motorcycle crash that occurred Monday evening on a rural county road in northwestern Washington County.

Around 8:49 Monday evening, Troopers Kyle Taylor and Eric Powers, along with units from the Washington County Sheriff's Department, Washington County EMS, and the Campbellsburg Fire Department, responded to a crash in the 7000 block of North White River Road. When units arrived, they found two vehicles, a green 2000 Suzuki motorcycle and a 2001 Mercury Mountaineer SUV, off the east side of the roadway. The driver of the motorcycle, Jacob W. Lengel, 31, of Salem, Indiana, was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Mountaineer, a 17-year-old male from Campbellsburg, Indiana, was not injured.

An Indiana State Police crash reconstruction team was called to assist. After a preliminary investigation, officers believe the motorcycle was southbound on White River Road and traveling at a high rate of speed. Investigators say the bike went left-of-center after rounding a corner and cresting a hill. Evidence at the scene indicates the driver of the northbound SUV attempted to avoid striking the motorcycle; however, both vehicles hit head-on on the east side of the roadway.

Investigators remained on-scene until approximately 1 a.m. on Tuesday.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in this crash.

This crash is still under investigation.

Stolen Vehicle, Guns, and Drugs recovered after Pursuit

Southern Indiana - Two people from southern Indiana, were arrested on numerous charges Wednesday morning after the driver lead officers from two states and multiple counties on a high-speed pursuit.

Around 3 am Wednesday, Louisville Metro Police advised they were in pursuit of a blue 2019 GMC Sierra, reported as stolen. The vehicle was believed to be occupied by two people and was westbound on I-64 approaching the state line. Kentucky authorities terminated the pursuit as the GMC crossed into Indiana.

The Sierra was equipped with the On-Star security system, and both Kentucky and Indiana Authorities were in contact with On-Star during the pursuit. Attempts by On-Star to remotely disable the car had been unsuccessful.

After the car crossed into Indiana, Trooper Clay Boley observed the vehicle speeding westbound near the 105 mile-marker in Harrison County and attempted to make a traffic stop. The driver did not stop, and the pursuit continued on I-64 through Harrison and Crawford Counties with speeds over 100 mph. The pursuit continued westbound and entered Perry County, where attempts by Perry County deputies to use tire-deflation devices were unsuccessful.

After entering Spencer County, the driver turned south on to US231 and continued southbound, again avoiding tire-deflation devices set up by Spencer County authorities. As the Sierra approached SR70 near Chrisney, Indiana, On-Star was able to shut down the vehicle remotely, and the driver drove into the median.

The driver, identified as Nelson Jacob Emery, 25, of New Albany, Indiana, was taken into custody without further incident. The passenger, Kaelin Maire Brian, 25, of Jeffersonville, Indiana, was also taken into custody.

Trooper Boley located a revolver with the serial number removed and a loaded 9mm semi-automatic pistol during a search of the vehicle. Approximately five grams of methamphetamine and one gram of marijuana were also found.

Both subjects were transported back to the Harrison County Jail. Charges are listed below:

Nelson Jacob Emory
1. Possession of Handgun with obliterated serial number - Level 5 Felony
2. Possession of handgun by Felon - Level 5 Felony
3. Theft (Motor Vehicle) -Level 6 Felony
4. Resisting Law Enforcement with a Vehicle - Level 6 Felony
5. Possession of Methamphetamine - Level 6 Felony
6. Reckless Driving - C Misdemeanor
Emory was also wanted on several warrants out of Floyd County, Indiana.

Kaelin Marie Brian
1. Possession of marijuana - B Misdemeanor

Trooper Boley was assisted by units from the Perry County Sheriff's Department, the Spencer County Sheriff's Department, Indiana State Police - Evansville, and Troopers Peyton and Mitchem from Indiana State Police - Sellersburg.

Indiana State Police Partners with DEA for 20th Drug Take Back Day

On Saturday, April 24, 2021, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is sponsoring the 20th nationwide “Prescription Drug Take Back” initiative. The “Take Back” initiative seeks to prevent prescription drug abuse and theft through the proper disposal of prescription drugs.
Collection sites will be set up nationwide for expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs which will be properly disposed of without threat to the environment. This program is for liquid and pill medications. Vaping pens without batteries and vaping cartridges will also be taken. Needles, new or used, WILL NOT be accepted for disposal. This service is free and anonymous with no questions asked.
This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet.
In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—pose both potential safety and health hazards.
Once again, the Indiana State Police is pleased to partner with the DEA, and as in the past, unwanted medications may be dropped off at any Indiana State Police Post, except the Toll Road Post. The event will be on Saturday, April 24, 2021, between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. The Indiana State Police Sellersburg Post is located at 8014 CR 311, Sellersburg, IN. 47172.
To locate the State Police post closest to your home or business, click this link for Indiana State Police on the Map. To find other locations in Indiana or across the U.S. that are participating in the Drug Take Back initiative, click this link to the DEA.
The Drug Take Back events are the safe, popular and responsible way for the public to legally dispose of prescription drugs with no questions asked.
