Sad couple days for Law Enforcement...prayers for the families.....
I have thought long and hard about how to address yesterday's events in Pendleton without saying too much about the case, to keep from getting in trouble, or seeming unsympathetic or overly emotional when it comes to any kind of threat to my community. I say MY because I live, work and raise my children here and I am very appreciative of the support this Town provides my department. I would like to first say that the Officers of PPD (and every Officer I know) are very sorry for any and all threats or actions that harm or threaten to harm the people we try to protect. The feeling of a wolf getting inside our perimeter makes for some sleepless nights of anguish and double guessing our actions. Yesterday, after coming off the horrible events of the Florida shooting, Officers and citizens were all on edge and in the middle of it we took a runaway report. I try to not say routine, but we have taken numerous reports like this over the years. The difference in this one is the advancement of social media and the ability for people to get involved. There are pluses and minuses to this part, but I also understand at a root level everyone just wants to help and my phone ringing is a show of love everyone has for the community. The runaway we all now know because of posts, was an 11 year old boy from our school system. A search by us and citizens found where in weeks past he had posted a comment that if he got 600 likes something big was going to happen on March 10th and further searches found pictures of guns that he had posted. No threat, no target of any specific kind was mentioned. Understandably, in the current climate, there was concern and assumptions of something terrible. After following leads and a concerted effort by PPD, the schools, and other agencies we found the boy. What I need parents to know and relay to their children is that this boy simply ran away to go see his dad!! He walked and biked to North Anderson to see a man, who through his own demons, cannot care for his son. Hopefully after the "chit-chat" I had with Dad, he can make changes and foster a relationship for the future. By what I found in that home, the boy was the only one in danger this particular day, and luckily he was found. The boy was returned to Pendleton and proper agencies became involved to help guide the boy in the future. Lastly the post saying "Something big was going to happen" was simply a plan to record himself jumping off the roof of the shed in his backyard. Definitely something BIG for an 11 year old boy.........I hope this provides enough information to resolve any fears people in our community might have/had and I ask that parents encourage their children to not fear this child if he does return to school based on the events of this situation.... Please do not hesitate to contact me if I said too much or there are still questions. Chief Marc C. Farrer

The Pendleton Police Department responded to numerous reports of thefts from vehicles today throughout town. While mostly medications and monies were stolen, there are also reported firearms being taken by the suspects. I normally suggest to people to leave vehicles unlocked and simply do not leave items of value inside. This way no forced entry results in damage and the person(s) find nothing to steal. Firearms should be secured by the owner and not be left unattended. If anyone saw anything, anyone, or has information that may help in this investigation, do not hesitate to contact the Pendleton Police Department through Dispatch at 765-642-0221

Thanks to Garner's Towing for assisting with its removal from the flatbed. Coming from Afganistan we thought it best to remove batteries and charge them fully before trying to start it up.
As some Pendleton Residents may have seen, the Police Department recently received new equipment. This vehicle, called an MRAP, was awarded to PPD through the Military Surplus program. Our department has signed assistance contracts with all agencies within Madison County, the Indiana Department of Corrections and Homeland Security District 6. The safety factor that a vehicle like this affords first responders is awesome. I have always believed that it is unwise to hope for the best without preparing for the worse. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to visit the PD.
