Man arrested after pursuit; police find pills, marijuana in vehicle

A man was arrested after a pursuit with police in Greenwood and a search of the vehicle found both pills and marijuana.

Lovepreet Singh, 18, of Indianapolis, was arrested on a charge of resisting law enforcement, possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance and driving with a suspended license.

Just after 2 p.m. Monday, a Greenwood police officer tried to stop a vehicle near Meridian Street and Bentwood Lane because the driver was not wearing a seat belt, the report said.

The driver turned onto neighborhood streets and eventually came to a stop, but took off again as the officer approached the vehicle, the report said. Shortly after, the driver lost control of the vehicle, went into a yard and got out and ran. Officers lost the man when he jumped over two fences.

Police searched the vehicle and found marijuana, more than 90 prescription pills and $620, the report said.

A resident called and reported seeing the man police were chasing get into a vehicle and leave. An officer stopped the vehicle and Singh was inside. He told police he had fled because his license was suspended.

Singh told police he knew about some of the marijuana, but did not know about the pills found in the vehicle. The pills were found with the cash that Singh said was his, the report said.

Singh, 6528 Cougar Court, was taken to the Johnson County jail and held on $4,200 bond.
