Fishers police arrest wanted fugitive



Fishers police aided U.S.Marshals March 15 in arresting Jared M. Dietzen of Fishers in connection with two warrants issued for him in Johnson County.

Dietzen, 23, is wanted in Johnson County on charges of possession of a controlled substance, a Class D felony, and resisting law enforcement with bodily injury, also a Class D felony.

On March 15, federal agents provided FPD officers with a description, name and possible location of the suspect. Officers attempted to locate the suspect in Colonial Court, near the intersection of 116th Street and Hague Road, but were initially unsuccessful.

Approximately eight hours later, an FPD officer observed a vehicle matching a description of the suspect’s car parked in residential driveway. A perimeter was set up around the home. Officers were greeted at the front door by a female who claimed the suspect was not home. At that time, FPD officers observed the suspect running from the rear of the home. Officers promptly gave chase, and subdued the suspect using a Taser after several verbal commands to stop were ignored.

The suspect was taken into custody without further incident and transported to the Hamilton County Jail, where he was charged with three additional counts: resisting law enforcement, a Class A misdemeanor; possession of marijuana, a Class A misdemeanor; and possession of paraphernalia with prior unrelated conviction, a Class D felony.
