"Obviously the entire department is very glad about this arrest," Brazil City Police Chief Terry Harrison said in a telephone interview. "It was only a matter of time before he was going to be found."
Rissler, 20, Brazil, has previously contacted authorities saying he would turn himself in, but remained a fugitive until Wednesday afternoon.
According to a press release by the Clay County Sheriff's Department and information provided by Harrison and Sheriff Mike Heaton, Rissler was located hiding inside a house trailer in Seelyville, Ind., by members of the BCPD, CCSD and the Vigo County Sheriff's Department.
Rissler is facing charges stemming from two arrest warrants.
The first arrest warrant is for petition to revoke probation on methamphetamine drug related conviction and the second arrest warrant is for two counts of class C felony resisting law enforcement, one count of criminal recklessness and one count of reckless driving for the charges stemming from Rissler's alleged involvement in a high-speed pursuit which ended in an accident that seriously injured Brazil City Patrolman/K-9 Handler Kenny Hill on Dec. 20.
Rissler was taken into custody without incident and booked into the Clay County Justice Center on a $25,000, no 10 percent cash bond for the second arrest warrant, but he will not be allowed to bond out at this time.
Jail officials explained to The Brazil Times the first arrest warrant, which takes priority over the second, does not allow for a bond to be established in the case, which means Rissler can not bond out until he appears in court for the first set of charges.
