LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A trooper with the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg was driving on Voyles Rd. in Pekin on Monday evening when a female flagged him down advising she had allegedly been battered, according to a police press release.

After further investigation, the trooper and other officers went to Voyles Rd. in Pekin where the alleged batterer, William A. McCarty, 36, was living. After speaking to McCarty, officers arrested him for strangulation and battery. He was incarcerated at the Washington County Jail.

While officers were at the residence on Voyles Rd. they came in contact with Carol Martin, 55, from Salem. Martin was visiting the residence and after officers ran a check on her, they were advised she was wanted out of Washington County on an outstanding arrest warrant. She was also taken into custody and incarcerated at the Washington County Jail.

Continuing the investigation at the residence, officers conducted a search of the residence. Police say items were located that are commonly used in the making of methamphetamine.

The actual homeowner, Joseph D. Sizemore, was already incarcerated at the Washington County Jail on unrelated charges at the time of the search warrant. He was charged with additional charges from the search warrant of possession of chemical precursors for the manufacturing of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

McCarty was also charged with possession of chemical precursors for the manufacturing of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

This investigation is continuing.
