MARKED TREE, AR (KAIT) -

Marked Tree police arrested a man wanted out of Indiana Tuesday night.

Chief Jerry Lung said Zaden Streb was wanted for a parole violation.

Indiana authorities got a tip that Streb was in the Marked Tree area.

Lung said his officers found Streb hiding in a home.

“He was hiding in a closet,” Lung said.

On Wednesday Streb was extradited back to Indiana.

Lung said his original charges were drug related, a problem he said his officers are tackling.

He said they are working hard to keep drugs off the streets in their community. 

"I'm proud of my guys," Lung said. "They are doing a great job."
