Three arrested in Branch County after traffic stop

State police arrested three people on a weapons charge after the vehicle they were in was stopped after it was clocked traveling in excess of 100 miles per hour on I-69 in Branch County.

The incident started around 2 a.m. Sunday when a trooper on stationary patrol observed a car being driven southbound at 115 miles per hour. It was stopped near the U.S. 12 interchange.

The driver, one of three people in the vehicle, had a valid Indiana permit, authorities said.

The two passengers, however, were unable to produce any identification, though it was later discovered all three live in the area of Anderson, Ind.

A female in the vehicle was wanted on a warrant out of Anderson on an unspecified felony charge. Meanwhile, troopers located a loaded semi-automatic pistol in the vehicle and a computer check showed the gun was stolen out of Anderson.

All three subjects refused to give information about the stolen gun.

They were taken to the Branch County jail and charged with possession of stolen property.
