Hendricks County Sheriff's Office News

Please join us in congratulating Deputy Damen Owens and Deputy Cole Smith on graduating from their ILEA basic course and being sworn in by Sheriff Clark. Our two new deputies started their field training over the weekend and are eager to serve in our community. We wish them all the best as they begin their long, healthy, fulfilling careers!

One of our newest Deputies in action... received this photo from a nice person passing through our county who had a problem with her tire. Said to make sure and thank the officer who went out of his way to help in the heat. Great job Deputy Corin McKee.

We want our citizens to be aware of a financial scam making the rounds again. The targeted victims will receive a phone call with a "spoofed" telephone number on their caller ID that appears to belong to Hendricks Power Cooperative. The caller then will demand credit card or bank information for immediate payment over the phone and use a threat of electric service disconnect to increase the sense of urgency. Hendricks Power Cooperative says they will never demand you to offer up personal finance information over the phone. If you have any doubts about your utility bill, contact their member payment center either in person, or over the phone at (317) 745-5473.

Just left the 2018 Sheltering Wings Vigil to kick off domestic violence awareness month. Another moving testament to the great work they do there everyday.

Take a minute and visit their website to learn about this issue and share it. You might just save a life. Hendricks County says NO MORE.

Please join with us in congratulating Sergeant Charles Morefield on his recent retirement. Sgt. Morefield came to the Hendricks County Sheriff's Office as a Deputy in the Enforcement Division in July of 1995. Morefield served in the Enforcement Division for 10 years prior to accepting an assignment as a Detective in the Investigations Division. Sgt. Morefield served as a Motor Unit and often rode in parades and provided escorts for motorcycle events in Hendricks County. Morefield was a crash reconstructionist, a Hostage/Crisis Negotiator, and served on the Sheriff's Honor Guard for several years. Sgt. Morefield's knowledge and expertise will be greatly missed; he was honored with a small reception on his last day with us, July 31, 2018. Congratulations Chuck! We wish you the best in your retirement!

We are currently testing for open Jail Deputy positions. See instructions below.

Brown has been with the department since 2004 and is a firearms instructor, an ERT member, a crash reconstructionist, and a field training officer. Please join with us in congratulating John and his family on receiving this honor!

MEMORIAL SERVICE PLANNED. A memorial service for fallen K9 Deputy Cade (seen here as a puppy with his Dad, K9 Bak) has been planned for Monday, July 23 at 2 PM. The service will be held at the Bartlett Chapel United Methodist Church located at 4396 E. Main Street in Avon. Doors will open to the public at approximately 1 PM. Officers should plan to arrive at approximately 12 PM for staging. The preliminary necropsy report was received from Purdue University today. According to the report, Cade suffered from an internal issue that involved lesions likely related to a condition known as GDV which is reportedly not uncommon in larger breeds. The issue was a medical problem and not related to the heat or working conditions. We truly appreciate the tremendous amount of support, calls, cards, posts, and well wishes during this difficult time. Persons interested in supporting our K9 program can make monetary donations directly to the Hendricks County Sheriff's Office in Danville. All public donations are used solely for the support of our K9 partners. Thank you again for your continued thoughts and prayers.

TRAFFIC STOP ENDS WITH THE ARREST OF AN ARIZONA MAN. Hendricks County Sheriff's Deputies arrested 30 year old Alexander Regino Quintanilla for possession of Methamphetamine and possession with the intent to deliver Methamphetamine. A vehicle stop for a minor traffic violation led to the discovery of approximately ten pounds of the drug in a hollowed out cooler. Hendricks County Deputies initiated the stop and during the course of the investigation noticed that the driver's statements were not consistent. K9 Officers with Danville PD responded to assist and gave a positive indication for the presence of narcotics. Quintanilla is being held in the Hendricks County Jail with no bond and is scheduled to make an initial court appearance today on the level 2 and level 3 felony charges. This stop took place on Sunday, July 15 at approximately 9:26 PM on US 36 near Gable Drive in Avon. The estimated value of the seized drugs was over two hundred thousand dollars.

Sheriff Clark presented Lauren Cummings with a certificate of completion for her recent 168 hour internship at the Sheriff's Office. Lauren graduated from Plainfield HS and currently attends the University of Indianapolis where she studies criminal justice. Best of luck Lauren.

It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of one of our own canine deputies, K9 Cade. K9 Cade was a dearly loved member of our community and will be sorely missed by many. K9 Cade will be especially missed by Deputies Chandler and Caffee, both of which were handlers of Cade through his tragically short career with the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office. Tuesday July 3rd, while tracking a suspect near Brownsburg, Cade began to develop symptoms related to the extreme heat and was immediately transported to one of our local vets for treatment. He was reportedly stabilized and transferred to another facility for overnight observation but ultimately took a turn for the worse and could not recover. Our thoughts and prayers go out to K9 Cade’s former handlers as well as all members of the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office who have worked with Cade over the years. Cade’s career began with the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office on October 1, 2014. Cade was sired by another one of our agency’s K9’s, Bak. Bak survives and is still in service with the Sheriff’s Office. Cade was a dual purpose K9; he completed his narcotics training in December of 2014 and completed his patrol training in July of 2015. In July of 2015, Cade and his handler were credited with saving the life of a man who was lying in a field in medical crisis. In October of 2016 Cade apprehended a suspect of a burglary in progress. In all, K9 Cade was deployed nearly 400 times recovering countless amounts of narcotics. Thank you, K9 Cade, for your years of service you provided to the citizens of Hendricks County and great memories you gave to us all. We are in the process of planning a memorial service for K9 Cade and we will share those details when they become available. The memorial service will be open to the public. We greatly appreciate our community’s support as we move forward.
