Two Arrested After Police Called to Avoca Fish Hatchery

(BEDFORD) – Indiana State Police arrested two Bedford men on theft charges on Friday.

Police arrested 20-year-old Bryson Humphrey and 19-year-old Noah Dusendang.

Humphrey and Dusendange are accused of stealing a backpack.

On the evening of September 26, 2019, a male went inside the Dairyland service station on Lincoln Avenue to make a purchase and left his backpack next to his bicycle on the northside of the building. When he came back out the backpack was gone. Inside the backpack was his father’s debit card number and a set of earphones valued around $15.

Video from the store shows Dusendang pulling up in his Jaguar, Humphrey taking the backpack and then running back to the car, and the two leaving the scene.

Dusendang is also facing charges of possession of meth and marijuana and trafficking with an inmate.

On Friday, at approximately 12:25 a.m., Trooper Chance Humphrey was on duty when he was asked to assist Lawrence County Sheriff’s Deputy Shaun Cabral to investigate two suspicious vehicles parked with all of their lights off in a parking lot at the Avoca Fish Hatchery in Avoca.

The two drivers were identified as Humphrey and Dusendang. Both were wanted on a warrant in Lawrence County for theft.

Officer Cabral then deployed his canine partner Jack to do an exterior search of the vehicle. The dog alerted officers to possible drugs inside.

Officers searched the 2000 Red Jaguar XJ8 and found black digital scales in the center console that field-tested positive for meth.

While being processed at the jail and changing clothes, the staff saw a baggie fall out of Dusendang’s sock. Officials say that the baggie contained marijuana.
