An Indiana Conservation Officer foiled the armed robbery of a liquor store in Kentland, Ind., on Thursday, the Department of Natural Resources said.

According to the DNR, at 3:40 p.m. Lt. Dan Dulin was traveling in the area of Fourth Street and Dunlap Street in Kentland when he was flagged down by a customer of a local liquor store who told him that the business was being robbed by a man armed with a knife.

Dulin was joined at the scene by Brook Town Marshall Chip Flahive, both of whom made entry into the store and took the suspect--identified as Aaron Templeton, 34, Monticello, Ind.--into custody, the DNR said.

Templeton was booked into the Newton County Jail on charges of armed robbery, criminal confinement, and resisting law enforcement. The DNR said that Templeton was also wanted on four additional unspecified warrants issued through Tippecanoe County.

Two knives were located on the scene but no one was injured in the incident.
