Man jailed on child molestation warrantJuly 14, 2020
From Local Sources
JASPER — A Perry County man sought on a Dubois County child molesting warrant was taken into custody Monday and booked into the Dubois County Security Center.
A warrant charging Jeffrey L. Fight, 35, Bristow, with one count of Level 1 felony child molesting and four counts of Level 4 felony child molesting was issued out of Dubois Circuit Court on Thursday, the day he was suspected to have fled into a wooded area near his residence, according to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office.
The sheriff’s office said the charges stem from a report of child molesting involving victims who reside in Dubois County.
Police had asked the public to be on the lookout for Fight and to share any information on his whereabouts.
“We were getting some pretty good tips,” Sgt. Stuart Wilson with the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office said today.
Wilson said officers from numerous area law enforcement agencies worked countless hours in an effort to take Fight into custody. Those assisting included the Perry County Sheriff’s Office, Tell City Police Department, Huntingburg Police Department, Indiana State Police and the U.S. Marshal’s Task Force.
Fight was taken into custody in Spencer County by state police troopers and officers from the U.S. Marshal’s Task Force. He was booked into the Dubois County Security Center at 8:15 p.m. on the active warrant and is being held without bond pending an initial court hearing.
