Brian Keith Garrard
CLAY COUNTY -- Indiana State Police troopers from the Putnamville Post arrested Brian Keith Garrard, 34, Bloomingdale, Ind., on Monday, Jan. 7, at 8:37 p.m.

He was wanted for Criminal Recklessness with Serious Bodily Injury, D felony, in Parke County, and felony burglary in Douglas County, Ill. Garrard had been considered armed and dangerous.

Acting on a Wabash Valley Crime Stoppers tip called into the Indiana State Police, ISP troopers Todd Brown, David Petrowski and Mike Wood, along with officers from the Brazil Police Department, went to 501 N. Vandalia St., Brazil, to search for Garrard.

The address was allegedly the home of Garrard's mother.

Garrard was allegedly located hiding in a rear storage room of the residence.

He was taken into custody without incident.

According to officials, a family friend was at the home, but not Garrard's mother.

Garrard was incarcerated at the Clay County Justice Center, but was then transferred to the Parke County jail.

There is no bond on the Parke County warrant. However, there is a $50,000 bond on the Douglas County warrant.

They might have found him sooner if the Brazil Times had published the story that was in the Terre Haute Tribune Star and on the local TV stations earlier. Those articles/segments stated that he might be in the Brazil area - just saying. I kept looking to see if it was online or in the printed paper and did not see anything till now.
