A lengthy police investigation may put possible suspects on police radar
and result in multiple charges against an individual. In Indiana, police
had been monitoring an individual for some time before arresting the man.
He now faces charges of
robbery and is accused of being involved in two dozen robbery incidents across
multiple towns in Indiana.
The 32-year-old was placed under arrest when an incident unfolded as police
hqad the man under surveillance. The man was being watched by authorities
as he was in an auto parts store. He was allegedly observed walking behind
the counter of the establishment and stretching his arm out in a manner
as to appear to have a weapon, then leaving the store.
Police arrested the man and have reason to believe he was involved in robberies
throughout the state. They contend these incidents occurred in different
Indiana cities dating back to Nov. 2013. The police did not state the
exact nature of any evidence or why they initially began to monitor the
Robbery is a very serious criminal charge in Indiana and can result in
serious prison time and a felony record if a conviction is obtained. The
reports indicate the man may face federal charges along with state charges.
This could mean the stakes in this case may be even higher for the accused
individual, who remains innocent before the court until and unless proven
otherwise. Nevertheless, the man and his defense team must carefully assess
the evidence prosecutors intend to present at trial in order to make an
informed judgment about the best manner in which to proceed as these charges
head to criminal court.
