A Columbus man wanted on warrants for failure to appear in court on probation violations and resisting law enforcement was arrested after a short foot chase Tuesday morning.
Maj. Todd Noblitt, with the Bartholomew County Sheriff's Department, says that just after 7 a.m., deputies were called to a home at 4965 W. County Road 200 North by members of the Columbus Township Fire Department. The department had knowledge that 33-year-old Sean Cobb was inside the home.
Noblitt said that moments later, Deputies Chad Swank and Jeff Wehmiller went to the home to arrest Cobb when he fled. Both deputies, along with Columbus Township Fire Department Chief Rodney Ferrenburg, chased after Cobb, but were not able to catch him, as he entered some nearby woods and was able to avoid capture.
Deputies surrounded the area and called in Officer Jessica Pendleton and her K-9 partner, "Bolt." When Cobb refused to surrender, Bolt was released. The K-9 quickly honed in on Cobb, who was arrested shortly thereafter.
Cobb was booked in the Bartholomew County Jail on the original warrants, as well as another preliminary charge of resisting law enforcement. His bond was set at $35,000.
