LIBERTY, Ind. -- The report of an unidentified flying object over Union County early today resulted in the arrest of two Connersville men on a variety of drug charges.
Union County Sheriff's Department officials said Deputy Dale Dishmond was responding to a report of a UFO over U.S. 27 south near Clifton Road when he came upon a "suspicious car" on Pottershop Road at about 1:35 a.m.
Three fishermen, who had spent part of Thursday night fishing on Brookville Lake off the Treatyline Ramp, reported the UFO. Dishmond stopped to investigate and found that the vehicle's passenger, Harold Williams, 29, of Connersville, was wanted on a warrant in Wayne County.
When he ran the license plates, Dishmond found them to be fictitious. He brought in a drug-sniffing dog and found 42 grams of cocaine, an amount of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Williams and Douglas Keegan, 32 of Connersville, were arrested and face preliminary charges of possession of cocaine, a class C felony, dealing cocaine, a class A felony, possession of marijuana, a class D felony, and possession of paraphernalia, a class A misdemeanor.
Police said the cocaine had a street value of around $4,000.
The pair remains in the Wayne County Jail.
