SHELBYVILLE, Ind. - A couple who had been sought after Shelbyville police warned they might try to abduct a child was arrested Friday morning after an exhaustive search.
Desiree Cox Clawson, 18, and Robert Clawson Jr., 31, had been sought on theft warrants out of northern Indiana.
Shelbyville Police Lt. Mike Turner said his department and the Shelby County Sheriff's Department had searched for the couple all night.
Police said Thursday that when police tried to serve warrants on the couple this week, they found handwritten material indicating the couple were headed south and might abduct a child.
Indiana State Police said the couple used an EBT card in Shelbyville on April 21, and Shelbyville police said there had been reports of the pair on a moped at a gas station on Shelbyville's north side Wednesday.
White County Sheriff's Deputy A.J. Alletto told RTV6 in April that Robert Clawson had escaped from a work release program at a manufacturing company in Monticello.
Authorities in Shelbyville planned a news conference Friday morning to provide more details.
