A couple hailing from Kentucky was placed under arrest on a number of charges including possession of a Controlled Substance after a traffic stop in Huntingburg over the weekend.

Just after 12:30 Sunday morning an officer with the Huntingburg Police Department pulled over a pickup for having green lights and turn signals.

Police say it was during that stop that identifying information given by the driver of the truck and a passenger could not as police explained it, yield a return and authorities felt something did not seem right.

Police say during their investigation, information supplied by the couple, later identified as 36-year old Joshua Pendygraft and 33-year old Carolyn Pendygraft both of Mayfield, Kentucky began to change. Police detained the couple pending further information on their actual identification.

Police say during the investigation a strip of Suboxone was found and the female admitted to being the owner without a proper prescription.

Police say both had background stories on several different names and multiple law enforcement agencies were contacted to try and verify information supplied.

They say after about 3 hours of checking, officers believed that the Pendygrafts finally provided their correct information and that their records were checked.

Police say both had warrants through Kentucky and due to the extent they were trying to hide their identities and provided false documents both were arrested on Level 6 Felony counts of Obstruction of Justice, as well as Class A Misdemeanor counts of False Identity Statement, and False informing.

Carolyn Pendygraft was charged with a Class a Misdemeanor count of Possession of a Controlled Substance.

They were taken to and booked into the Dubois County Security Center in Jasper without further incident.
