Hearing no-shows bring warrant arrest

From Local Sources


JASPER — Authorities booked a Scott County man into the Dubois County Security Center Wednesday evening after he failed to attend court hearings.

Gary L. Spicer, 58, Austin, was charged with Level 6 felony theft a year ago after he allegedly took various items valued at a total of $929.70 from the Walmart Supercenter at 4040 N. Newton St.

The case wound its way through court until, in April, Spicer agreed to plead guilty. He then failed to appear for sentencing twice in May, prompting a warrant to be issued for his arrest May 29.

Authorities booked Spicer into the Dubois County Security Center at 7:37 p.m. Wednesday on the failure-to-appear warrant.
