Modlin

RICHLAND CITY — Recently, Indiana State Police Troopers Nathan Kern, Adam McBeth, Kaitlyn Greene and Greene’s partner K-9 Drogos responded to a residence in Richland City in efforts to apprehend Mark A. Modlin, 45, who was wanted on several warrants.

Once at the residence, troopers became suspicious that Modlin was hiding after they located a hidden trap door leading to a crawl space.

Greene deployed K-9 Drogos and Modlin subsequently surrendered without a K-9 bite, police said.

Modlin was incarcerated at the Spencer County Jail on charges that included felony counts of methamphetamine possession, operating a motor vehicle after forfeiture of license for life and operating as a habitual traffic violator, plus misdemeanor counts of leaving the scene of an accident with serious bodily injury, disorderly conduct and possession of drug paraphernalia.
