TERRE HAUTE, Ind. — A Terre Haute man with drugs was arrested after he gave away his hiding spot.

Indiana State Police say on April 21, Chad Dycus was pointing a green laser at a helicopter. Police were able to use technology on the helicopter to locate the exact location of where the laser was being used, which turned out to be the home of Dycus.

On April 30, police showed up to the house to conduct a search warrant. Dycus was able to run away and escape officers. However, police did find the laser pointer, along with marijuana, methamphetamine, and scales.

On Monday, police received a tip that Dycus had returned to the home. Troopers went to the house and arrested Dycus on eight different charges, including criminal recklessness, and possession of marijuana and meth. A woman inside the house, Kimberly Altvater, was also arrested for assisting a criminal and resisting law enforcement.

They are both in the Vigo County Jail.
