An alleged trespassing incident led to a short pursuit and two suspects were arrested on various drug charges involving a meth lab Sunday morning.

According to information provided by the Clay County Sheriff's Department, an unidentified property owner contacted authorities with information two white males and a strong smell of a chemical odor was on their property. The property owner provided a detailed description of the suspect's vehicle, including the type of stickers on the back window.

Deputies located and attempted to initiate a traffic stop on the vehicle on County Road 150 North, just south of Lower Bloomington Road. The driver refused to stop, leading deputies on a short pursuit that ended when the suspects left the roadway on Batt Drive, in Vigo County. With the vehicle disabled, both suspects ran across an open field in an attempt to escape.

With assistance from Brazil City Police Department and Vigo County Sheriff's Department, a quick perimeter was set up around the area, helping to contain the suspects to a small area.

A patrolman with the BCPD took David Sharp, 46, Hillsdale, a passenger in the vehicle, into custody on Light Drive.

The Clay County Sheriff's Department K-9 Unit tracked down the driver, Harold Eversole, 50, West Terre Haute, a short time later.

Both suspects were transported to the Clay County Justice Center for processing while the Indiana State Police Clandestine Lab Team was called to clean and process as evidence the methamphetamine lab ingredients found inside the vehicle belonging to Eversole.
