Warrant charges Martin County man with shoplifting

From Local Sources

JASPER — Indiana State Police brought a Martin County man to the Dubois County Security Center Wednesday on a warrant accusing him of shoplifting at the Walmart Supercenter in May.


Ryan T. Fields, 34, Loogootee, is alleged to have stolen $177.08 in merchandise from the 4040 N. Newton St. store May 6. The Jasper Police Department investigated the offense.

Fields could have faced a misdemeanor theft charge but, because of a previous theft conviction, authorities filed a notice of intent to seek an enhanced penalty.

A warrant for Fields’ arrest on a Level 6 felony theft charge was issued last week in Dubois Superior Court. He was booked into the Dubois County Security Center at 3:41 p.m. Wednesday.
