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.
