Barkes - Mullins Arrest NORTH VERNON, Ind. – A traffic stop last week in Jennings County, resulted in the arrest of two people for level-4 felony possession of methamphetamine. North Vernon Police Department (NVPD) officer Isaac Barkes noticed a Jeep Cherokee commit a moving violation and followed the vehicle through traffic for three minutes.

The suspect was found to have a suspended driver’s license, as well as an outstanding Clark County arrest warrant for failing to appear on residential entry, intimidation, and battery. During a search of the vehicle, NVPD allegedly discovered a glass smoking pipe, a handgun, and 11.8 grams of methamphetamine. Mullins and his passenger, Chrystal D. Barger, 36, of Ostico, were taken into custody. As a result of the incident, Mullins faces eight charges and Barger will answer to two.
