Louisville, Ky. (WHAS11) - Travis Adams, 32, was arrested and charged with conspiracy to deal methamphetamine after a 15-minute standoff with the U.S. Marshals Service, Indiana State Police and Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office.

Officers responded to 11334 Lower Mt. Vernon Road on May 12 to serve a federal arrest warrant on Adams. He was recently indicted in federal court for conspiracy to deal methamphetamine.

Officers surrounded the residence and requested further assistance from the Indiana State Police Emergency Response Team.

Officers on scene were able to contact Adams on his cell phone, and within 15 minutes he surrendered without further incident.

He was taken to the Vanderburgh County Jail where he is currently being held on bond.
