Clark County-At approximately 2:45 am Friday morning, Trooper Tate Rohlfing made a traffic stop on Interstate #65 near the 21 Mile Marker in Clark County north bound. The traffic stop was on a green GMC Safari for a traffic infraction. During the traffic stop trooper Rohlfing discovered two of the passengers inside of the van were wanted on arrest warrants out of Hamilton County, IN.
