(BLOOMINGTON) – Monroe County Sheriff’s deputies arrested 37-year-old Dustin Mizell.
Mizell was arrested Friday at a home on Rockport Road where deputies and CIRT searched earlier this week.
Deputies were at the property after identifying a Polaris UTV that had been stolen from a home in Greene County. This is the second time this week a stolen UTV has been recovered at the property on Rockport Road.
Mizell was found inside a garage apartment.
The previous visit by MCSO had an influence on his decision to surrender peacefully today.
He will be booked in on probation violation and a charge of a dangerous felon in possession of a handgun. Other charges are pending.

He is being sought after a search at a residence on Rockport Road on Wednesday.
According to Sheriff Brad Swain, the Critical Incident Response team did a search of two homes looking for Mizell.
“Mizell was spotted by a deputy walking away from a stolen pickup truck within eyesight of his home,” says Sheriff Swain. “He fled to that area and was last seen near a neighbors house on a common area.”
The resident refused to permit deputies to enter and search for Mizell, so a search warrant was obtained.
“A stolen Polaris UTV was recovered during our time at the properties,” says Sheriff Swain. “It was taken from the same owners of the stolen truck a few days earlier.”
