SPENCER, Ind. — An Indiana State Police investigation that started on Tuesday morning ended Tuesday night with the arrest of an Owen County Emergency Medical Services (EMS) supervisor. Owen County EMS officials alerted the Indiana State Police about an alleged theft from an ambulance and Trooper Ryan White initiated the investigation.

Trooper White gathered information regarding the ongoing theft of medicine from EMS ambulances. EMS employees were able to provide inventory records that showed discrepancies over a three day period. On the evening of July 5th, workers spotted an off duty EMS supervisor going through one of the ambulances at their headquarters in Spencer. After the supervisor left, workers inventoried the ambulance again and determined a vial of Benadryl was missing.
