Armed Man Stole Cash and Car from Taco Bell

An Indiana man was arrested and jailed on over a dozen charges after allegedly robbing a fast-food restaurant at gunpoint, stealing a vehicle from the parking lot, leading the police on a chase, and illegally firing a gun.

Early in the morning on June 30, employees at a Taco Bell located in Fishers experienced a scare when a car with three people in it rolled up to the drive-thru window. According to reports, when the trio interacted with the staff, they allegedly ordered them to hand over cash while holding handguns. Before leaving the premises with the money, one of the people in the vehicle reportedly made off with an employee’s Dodge Challenger parked in the lot.

The authorities were notified, and officers from the Fishers Police Department followed up on the report. They searched nearby for the allegedly stolen car, and when they located it, they pulled over the driver. The man stopped the vehicle but reportedly ran off.

Officers, in addition to a K9, began looking for the man, and they reported that they heard someone fire a gun. Shortly after, the suspect, who they believed was responsible for the gunshot, was found.

The man was taken into custody and booked into the Hamilton County Jail. He is facing several charges including felony robbery – taking property by putting someone in fear while armed with a deadly weapon, felony intimidation, felony theft where value of property is between $750 and $50,000, felony auto theft, felony pointing a firearm at another, felony criminal confinement while armed with a deadly weapon, felony resisting law enforcement using a vehicle, felony criminal recklessness committed with a deadly weapon, felony kidnapping while armed with a deadly weapon, felony possession of a machine gun, and misdemeanor counts of resisting law enforcement by knowingly/intentionally fleeing and battery resulting in bodily injury. He is currently being held without bond.
