DATE: Saturday April 20, 2019
SUBJECT: Three Evansville Men Arrested for Late Night Robbery
RELEASE NUMBER: 2019-NR-018
CONTACT: Lieutenant Mark Rasure
AUTHORITY: Sheriff Dave Wedding

The Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office has arrested three Evansville men for their alleged involvement in a late night robbery that occurred just before midnight on April 19th, 2019. At 11:30 PM on Friday evening, Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to a residence in the 1900 block of Wolverine Drive as a victim reported to have been robbed. The victim reported that several known male suspects pushed their way into the residence and assaulted her before fleeing in a vehicle with some of her belongings.

Sheriff’s deputies later located the vehicle in the area of Lafayette Avenue and Richardt Avenue and were able to take two of the three suspects into custody at that time. One of the suspects, Aaron Lester, chose to fight with the deputies who were attempting to lawfully arrest him and was additionally charged for resisting arrest. The second suspect, Skylar Dillard, was arrested without incident and both were taken to the Vanderburgh County Jail where they were housed for multiple charges stemming from the robbery. Deputies located the stolen items inside of the vehicle during the road side stop. During the investigation deputies determined that the third suspect, Tyrone Clay, had already been dropped off at his residence on Evansville’s southeast side.

Deputies went to Clay’s residence and observed him through an open window. Clay was given numerous warnings to exit the residence, but refused to comply with the deputies’ orders. Due to his refusal to peacefully surrender, a Sheriff’ Office K-9 was used to apprehend Clay. Clay was treated for minor injuries and was transported to the jail after his release from the hospital.

Dillard, Lester and Clay were booked into the jail for charges stemming from the robbery. All three individuals were charged for being in possession of narcotics at the time of their arrests. Lester and Clay were also charged for resisting law enforcement.
