LPD picks up Odon man on warrant

Tuesday, January 1, 2013

A 19-year-old Odon man who was wanted in Sullivan County was located and taken into custody last week by Linton police officers.

Andrew S. Knepp was arrested without incident around 10:30 p.m. on Dec. 28 at the McDonald's Restaurant in Linton.

LPD Officer Jason Wilson, the investigating officer, was assisted by LPD Officer Paul Clark in making the arrest.

The preliminary charges filed Dec. 21 in Sullivan Superior Court against Knepp included two counts of theft, both class D felonies, and one count of criminal mischief, a class B misdemeanor.

The warrant was issued the same day and the LPD received a request to locate the suspect.

Knepp was transported and released to the custody of the Sullivan County Sheriff's Department.

His bond was set at $20,000 with ten percent allowed.

In Greene County, Knepp was charged with misdemeanor criminal trespass in May but entered into a pre-trial diversion program in August.

I Hope he doesnt get a slap on the hand again. He needs to be sentenced and serve some time in a prison and it might starighten him out. He has been trouble since about couple years. Tearing up our town by his driving, threatening about things, stealing. I know help has been given to him but he just doesnt get the message.
