Indiana State Police say they have arrested a man wanted on drug charges.  

ISP says Sunday night, around 9:30 p.m., troopers attempted to stop a 2006 Dodge Stratus at 9th Street and Harrison Street in Vincennes after receiving information the driver was wanted out of Daviess County, IN on a felony warrant for dealing methamphetamine.

The driver, John Q. Wilkerson, 31, of Washington, failed to stop and fled south on 9th Street. After a brief chase on several area streets, Wilkerson stopped and fled on foot.

ISP says a K-9 unit was brought in and tracked Wilkerson nearly five blocks before they found him hiding on a porch in the 800 block of Broadway.

Troopers say the K-9 continued to search for Wilkerson's jacket that he discarded while fleeing from police.

The jacket was later found in an alley between Buntin and Broadway.

ISP says a search of the jacket revealed methamphetamine, marijuana and paraphernalia.

Wilkerson was arrested and taken to the Knox County Jail where he is currently being held without bond.
