Wanted Fugative Arrested In Owen County

OWEN COUNTY, Ind.–A man who was wanted on several arrest warrants from multiple counties was arrested in Owen County Monday night.

State police say they were trying to find Andrew Bradley, 44, of Bloomington. Through “numerous investigative strategies”, they say they found Bradley at a farm on Smith Road in Owen County.

At about 7:30 pm, investigators say they drove toward the driveway. Bradley ran behind the house and through the fields while officers were a long distance away.

State police say they used investigators in a helicopter to locate Bradley. Those investigators then let the officers on the ground know where he was. Bradley eventually stopped running and surrendered, police say.

“Excellent teamwork, seamless cooperation between departments, and thorough planning resulted in a dangerous individual being arrested without a major incident. The citizens can rest easier knowing Mr. Bradley is in custody,” said Greg Day, state police sergeant.
