Indiana State Police troopers went to Canterbury House Apartments Sept. 6 on a tip that Kayla McGovern, 20, Milan, who was wanted in Jefferson County on a warrant for possession of cocaine and theft, was in a specific apartment, reports Sgt. Noel Houze, ISP Versailles District public information officer.  

When officers arrived at the apartment, an occupant said McGovern had just left and was on her way to Oldenburg in a black 2003 Ford Focus. Officers searched the area and located the vehicle near Arlington Avenue and State Road 229. Trooper Kyle Stovall initiated a traffic stop and was assisted by several other troopers.
