RUSH COUNTY, Ind. -- A Rushville pastor at the center of a child molestation investigation has been arrested for trespassing.

Garry Evans, 72, and his wife, Gay Evans, 70, went to a home in the 400 block of North Main street looking for a family member on Monday.

The woman told police she asked the couple to leave the property but they refused and demanded to speak to the person they were looking for. When they continued to refuse, the woman told police she got her gun because she felt threatened but Gay tried to take it from her.

The woman said she eventually chased the couple away from her property with a baseball bat and called the police.

Police located Garry and Gay a short time later. Garry is charged with trespass and his wife is charged with trespass and resisting arrest after officers say she became “verbally abusive and physically resistant” during her arrest.

The homeowner told police she has received numerous threatening calls and messages following the Evans’ arrests and police are investigating those as well.

Garry Evans is at the center of a child molestation investigation after multiple young girls have come forward claiming he lured them into his office with candy and then touched them inappropriately or made them touch him.
