Five-hour standoff ends peacefully

April 29, 2009 | 08:27 AM

A standoff lasting nearly five hours ended peacefully Sunday with the arrest of two people.

Anthony Mills of the Harrison County Sheriff's Department said a resident living in the 2300 block of Chinn Road south of Corydon reported his car had been stolen that morning. The person located the vehicle in woods near his home and said he knew who had taken it, identifying the suspect as his neighbor, Cody Taylor, 20.

While interviewing the owner of the car, an officer saw someone walk into Taylor's trailer. Police knocked on the door of the home, but no one answered. Having received information indicating there may be firearms inside, the officers retreated and called for additional units.

"We just didn't want to take any chances," Mills said.

With the help of a family member of Taylor's, Indiana State Police were able to talk Taylor from the home and he was taken into custody without incident.

Taylor was charged with theft, possession of stolen property, possession of a handgun by a felon, possession of marijuana, possession of prescription medication and possession of a controlled substance.

Hope Delaney, 38, of Palmyra, believed to be Taylor's girlfriend, was also arrested. She was charged with trespassing( for being in the stolen vehicle).

Officers with the Department of Natural Resources also assisted.

    Yes, what Cody did was wrong and should be held accountable for his actions. But look at it from this angle the boy needs help, rehabilation a new way to live his life, a way he dosen't know of. I see all these young kids doing all these stupid crimes and most of them are directly related to drug abuse. Lets reach out our hands and offer the help to these young people in need. I'm not saying that it will fix the problem 100% but just maby it make a small dent in the problem. If we can change the live of one person then the effort will be worth it. And for all the people out their that think this is a stupid waste of time and wouldn't work I'm living proffe that it people can change. I was worse off then Cody was and with the help of my MOM and DAD who never gave up on me and was always their, helped me change my life around and start doing right again. So what I'm saying most people don't have the support I had and it's tough to start over and live a productive life. So before you write someone off as being no good think again because next person going through it might be you or a loved one. Also for my X-wife I'll be waiting for you 4 ever, and I'm sorry
