From local sources
PETERSBURG — Indiana State Police arrested a man in Petersburg this morning who was wanted for attempted murder, ending a search that had resulted in a precautionary two-hour delay to the start of the school day in Pike County.
The arrest of 21-year-old Darius A. Hardiman of Anderson early this morning was linked to a shooting that occurred in Anderson on March 17, according to Indiana State Police.
On April 3, the Anderson Police Department notified area law enforcement agencies that Hardiman might be in the Evansville area. By that time, a felony warrant for attempted murder had been issued for Hardiman’s arrest.
At 10:30 p.m. Thursday, state police and the U.S. Marshal’s fugitive task force received information Hardiman was in the Petersburg area.
More than 20 officers from the state police, Pike County Sheriff’s Department, Petersburg Police Department and Washington Police Department responded to the area to search for Hardiman.
At approximately 6:30 a.m. today, Trooper Justin Bean spotted Hardiman hiding in thick brush behind the Kangaroo Express gas station located on State Road 57 on the north side of Petersburg. Hardiman was arrested without incident and taken to the Pike County Jail where he is waiting to be transported back to Anderson.
Information on the March 17 incident in Anderson was not available by presstime.
