The Whitley County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were patrolling the Goldbug community in response to recent criminal activity in the area when they noticed a man walking North along US Hwy 25. They checked on the man, later identified as 33 year old Joseph Bauer of Williamsburg, who showed signs of intoxication. The investigation found that Bauer had a bench warrant for his arrest and a search turned up two plastic bags on him containing a substance that field tested positive for meth. Bauer was arrested for the warrant and also for possession and public intoxication. He was lodged in the Whitley County Detention Center.
