According to a recent Facebook post by the Fishers Police Department, an Indianapolis man was arrested on Sunday for robbing a Taco Bell, stealing a vehicle, fleeing from the police, and even firing his weapon. The incident took place in Fishers, Indiana.

Early Sunday morning at around 1:30 a.m., Fishers Police Department received a call regarding a robbery and carjacking that took place at a Taco Bell on Allisonville Road. Initial reports from Fishers dispatch indicated that a group of males entered the drive-through window brandishing firearms and demanded money. One of the suspects fled the scene in a Dodge Challenger that belonged to one of the victims. Fishers officers immediately arrived at the Taco Bell, proceeded to locate the employees, and commenced an investigation into the matter.

The authorities spotted the stolen Dodge Challenger heading south on Allisonville Road and decided to pull it over. The driver, identified as 24-year-old Fredrick Nance from Indianapolis, immediately bolted from the car and ran away on foot, leaving his vehicle and belongings behind. A chase ensued, with several officers, including a K-9 unit, pursuing the suspect. The K-9 team’s handler unleashed the dog to track and apprehend Nance, who was eventually caught.

As the officers were in pursuit, a sudden gunshot was heard. The K-9 was leading the way when the sound echoed. Thankfully, neither the officers nor the K-9 sustained any injuries. The officers were able to apprehend Nance with the help of the K-9. After the arrest, Nance underwent a medical evaluation before being taken to the Hamilton County Jail.

Upon Nance’s arrest, law enforcement officials discovered various pieces of evidence belonging to the victims. Notably, a Glock handgun that was used in the crime was found nearby, and it had a machine gun conversion device attached to it. The victims were able to positively identify Nance as the perpetrator of the crime.
