Original Story:

LEBANON, Ind. — The Lebanon Police Department, Greencastle Police Department, and the Owen County Sheriff’s Department have identified a suspect wanted for three armed robberies within the last six days.

Devin Ewoldt, 33, is being sought by police in connection to armed robberies which occurred at the Dollar General in Gosport on Sept. 23, a Pizza King in Greencastle on Sept. 28 and another Dollar General in Lebanon on Sept. 28.

Police say security footage of Ewoldt was captured at each of the businesses linking him to the crimes.

Police credit the public for helping to quickly identify Ewoldt.

Ewoldt is also wanted on unrelated warrants out of Boone and Montgomery counties.

Ewoldt was last seen driving a White 2004 Nissan Xterra with temporary license plate K709963. His last known address was in Crawfordsville.

“Right now they are trying to narrow down where he may be or where he may be staying. And then once they figure out where he’s at I’m sure it will involve the use of K-9’s and some of our special response teams from wherever this location may be. Right now we have no idea where he’s at,” said Lebanon Police Department, Lt. Ben Phelps.

Police say Ewoldt was armed with a handgun during each of these incidents and is believed to be armed and dangerous.

“All of the investigators are meeting to work on a plan to locate Mr. Ewoldt and bring him into custody. He’s currently wanted in Montgomery County and Boone County on multiple unrelated warrants. So we’ve enlisted the help of other agencies such as Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, Crawfordsville, some other local and state task forces so we can find out where he’s at and safely bring him into custody,” said Lt. Phelps.

If anyone knows the whereabouts of Ewoldt, call 911. Do not attempt to apprehend or approach him, police warn.

Detectives with the Lebanon Police Department can be reached at 765-482-8836 or 765-482-1412, option 8. Detectives with the Greencastle Police Department can be reached at 765-653-3155. Detectives with the Owen County Sheriff’s Office can be reached at 812-829-4874, extension 1.
