GRANT COUNTY, Ind. (WPTA) - Indiana State Police (ISP) says they have arrested a 20-year-old Fort Wayne man on several charges after he led officers on a pursuit on I-69 in Grant County Thursday morning.

ISP says around 9:30 a.m., a trooper attempted to pull over a car that was speeding on northbound I-69 near the 261-mile marker. They say the driver, Kysan Jones, did not pull over and led the trooper on a chase that later ended near the 273-mile marker.

When police searched his car, they say they found individually packaged bags of marijuana, a nine-millimeter handgun, and THC vape cartridges.

Jones was arrested on charges including resisting law enforcement with a motor vehicle, reckless driving, and possession of marijuana with intent to deliver.
