Troopers Arrest Two after Stopping their Vehicle for No Taillights



ISPPosey County – Thursday afternoon, January 9th, at approximately 5:15, Sergeant Russ Werkmeister was patrolling SR 62 near St. Phillips Road when he observed a 2007 Freightliner truck parked along the westbound birm. As Sergeant Werkmeister was pulling in behind the vehicle to check on the driver’s status, the driver began to pull away without activating his lights. Sergeant Werkmeister eventually stopped the vehicle for driving without taillights. While talking to the driver an odor of burnt marijuana was detected. The driver was identified as William Galbraith, 47, and his passenger was identified as Katie Norrick, 22, both from Oakland City. Troopers searched Galbraith and found a small amount of marijuana in his jacket pocket. Galbraith resisted arrest by pulling away from Sergeant Werkmeister, but he was handcuffed without further incident.

  1. While Ms. Katie is in jail I hope someone starts proceedings to get her baby away from her until she cleans up her act. Poor kid.
