Man jailed on failure-to-appear warrantsMarch 27, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — An Orange County man named in local failure-to-appear warrants was lodged this week in the Dubois County Security Center.
Kyle A. Haley, 27, French Lick, was taken into custody Monday by the Huntingburg Police Department and Dubois County Sheriff’s Office on failure-to-appear warrants related to ongoing auto theft and suspended driving cases.
The warrants were issued March 4 after Haley failed to appear for hearings on the cases in Dubois Superior Court.
In the auto theft case, Haley was originally arrested by the Dubois County Sheriff’s Office after deputies were called the morning of Jan. 17 to conduct a welfare check on a man reported to possibly be passed out in a Dodge flatbed truck parked at a Birdseye business location.
Haley was awake when officers arrived but it was determined his license was suspended. Also, police said, he could not present a vehicle registration and the freshly painted black Dodge truck had a license plate registered to a General Motors product.
The sheriff’s department gave Haley a courtesy transport to a friend’s house in the Birdseye area after telling him the truck would be towed because of false and fictitious plates and his suspended license.
Later, police said, an original VIN sticker was located in the truck. It showed the vehicle was a maroon 1996 Dodge 350 that had been reported stolen.
Police also said the VIN number that should have been on the vehicle’s engine block had been scratched off.
When questioned, according to authorities, Haley allegedly stated he knew the vehicle was stolen.
