INDIANAPOLIS - After several men were rounded up and arrested for break-ins, robbery and rape on the city's north side, last month, investigators are now hunting for another man possibly linked to the crimes.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) said detectives need the public's help in locating Adrian Anthony, 20, in connection with the East 79th Street residential robbery.

Ten people have been arrested and/or charged in connection to robberies at two homes near East 79th Street and Spring Mill Road . Investigators are still trying to determine if some of the suspects were involved in both incidents.

Detectives are also looking for Adrian Anthony as a person of interest. No charges have been filed
against this individual related to these incidents. Police said Anthony should be considered armed and dangerous.

“These types of crimes will not be tolerated in our city,” said IMPD Chief Hite. “As you saw in these cases, our detectives, our officers, and our law enforcement partners will not stop until we find those responsible and hold them accountable. We not only arrested those who are alleged to be directly responsible, but several suspects who are accused of indirectly assisting in these crimes.”

IMPD said there's also a warrant out for Anthony in an unrelated case for resisting law enforcement. Investigators said anyone who knows where Anthony is should not approach him, but instead should call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-8477 (TIPS) or simply call 911. Callers can also text "INDYCS" plus tip information to 274627.
