On February 25, 2012 officers with The Fishers Police Department arrested three juveniles for a home invasion and robbery. The Hamilton County Dispatch Center received a 911 call from a resident living in the 7800 block of Bryden Drive (near 116th Street and Holland Drive). The caller reported that an armed suspect entered the home and demanded money.
Upon their arrival officers identified three people. A 24 year-old female told police she and her juvenile brother were home when she heard someone knocking on the front door. She recognized the visitor as one of her brother’s friends. She opened the door and let him inside. Shortly after, the female was approached from behind by a fourth person wearing a mask. The masked suspect entered the home thru an unsecured back door. He displayed a black handgun and demanded she give him money. When she refused the masked suspect forced the female and other occupants into a second floor bedroom.
Officers also located a 15 year-old male inside the victim’s residence. He originally told police that he was just visiting and not involved in the robbery. Officer Ralph and his police K-9 Bas located a 14 year-old male walking in the neighborhood. The juvenile matched the description of the armed suspect. Officers also located the BB gun used in the crime.
Both juveniles were transported to The Fishers Police Department. The juveniles and their parents cooperated with investigators. The investigation confirmed that both juveniles were involved in the home invasion and robbery. After giving their statements the juveniles were transported to the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Center without incident. They were charged with Robbery “B” Felony and Criminal Confinement “B” Felony. The third juvenile was later arrested and charged with Robbery “B” Felony for his role in planning the crime.
