VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A man from Lewis was arrested Thursday night in Vigo County while officers were serving a warrant on a separate individual. 

Officers were serving a warrant on Steve Ferree, who was wanted for theft, fraud and exploitation of a dependent. 

While officers were there, they found cash and drugs on a subject who identified himself as Ferree's brother.
