(WHAS11) -- A fugitive wanted in Pennsylvania and West Virginia was arrested Wednesday night in southern Indiana according to a news release by the Indiana State Police.

According to that release, officers from the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force, Indiana State Police and Clarksville Police arrested Danny Poston, who also goes by Danny Diamenz and 'Mr. President' Wednesday in Floyd County.

Poston, 23, was wanted in West Virginia for Conspiracy to Distribute Cocaine and out of Pennsylvania for gun charges, assault and probation. He was arrested on a federal warrant.

Police say a tip came into the U.S. Marshals Office that Poston was in Clarksville at a home on Beechlawn Drive. Officers then set up surveillance and were able to arrest him after a traffic stop was made near the Kamer Miller Road and Charlestown Road area in Floyd County.

After the traffic stop, officers searched that home on Beechlawn Drive and discovered an indoor marijuana grow operation.

Poston is now in the Floyd County Jail awaiting extradition. Criminal charges are pending, according to police.
