Pike County – Monday morning, April 11, at approximately 2:10 a.m., Trooper Angermeier stopped the driver of a 2001 Dodge pickup truck for driving 97 mph on I-69 near the 45 mile-marker.  The driver was identified as Wesley Detalente, 41, and his passenger was identified as Joshua Jackson, 39, both from Washington. A wanted check revealed Detalente had active warrants out of Vanderburgh County for probation violation and for possession of a syringe and drug paraphernalia. During a search of the vehicle, officers found a glass smoking device with burnt white residue in the center console. The residue later tested positive for methamphetamine. Officers also noticed the shifter knob was aftermarket and had a hidden compartment that contained a small amount of suspected methamphetamine. During a further search, officers located a container that was zip-tied to the frame of the truck. When officers opened the container, they discovered one used syringe, a smoking device with burnt residue, package of 10 syringes, a baggie containing 11 Dilaudid pills, and a digital scale.
