Suspect in custody after bank robbery, police pursuit in multiple counties

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – The pursuit of a bank robbery suspect went through Bartholomew and Johnson counties before ending in Marion County Wednesday afternoon after a lengthy chase.

Around 12:45 p.m., the suspect robbed MainSource Bank in Edinburgh while wearing a white hardhat and neon traffic vest. He handed the tell a note implying he had a weapon and demanding money. After getting some cash, the suspect, who was driving a red Camaro, went north on I-65 as multiple police cars pursued.

As many as 20 cars were involved in the pursuit, which proceeded on the interstate at high speeds. The suspect exited I-65 at Raymond Street and went west on Spann Avenue. The Camaro went airborne and crashed into another vehicle just north of the railroad tracks at Bates Street and South Shelby Street. The driver of the other vehicle was treated by medics at the scene and released.

Police took the suspect, later identified as Gary Ewing, into custody. He was “alert and conscious,” police said, and was transported to an area hospital.

The pursuit and apprehension involved the Johnson County Sheriff’s Department, Indiana State Police and Indianapolis Metropolitan police
