According to information from Sgt. Noel Houze Jr. of the Indiana
State Police, a man living in Sunman was arrested last week on two
felony counts of First Degree Robbery.
Eric C. Schott, 24, was living at apartments at 123 S. Meridian
Street when police caught up with him. He was wanted on a warrant
out of Clay County, Kentucky. Kentucky State Police had information
that Schott was living at 111 W. Washington Street, however troopers
later learned he no longer lived at that address.
After Trooper Joe Livers of the Indiana State Police, Versailles
Post, located the suspects vehicle at his present address
and spotted a man fitting Schotts description looking out
the window, they were able to obtain a search warrant for the apartment.
Schott would not answer the door. From the time Indiana officials
were contacted about the suspect until the time he was taken into
custody was about five hours.
Schott was taken into custody about 4:00 a.m. last Friday, July
20 without incident, according to police. He is currently being
held in the Ripley County Jail awaiting extradition to Kentucky.
Troopers were assisted by Sunman Town Marshal Bill Dramann.
