Father - son burglars arrested in Hendricks County

A father-son burglary team has been connected to a number of cases.


Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office detectives, with assistance from the Indiana State Police, Avon Police Department, and the Plainfield Police Department arrested two suspects who have been linked to more than five burglaries in the Avon and eastern Hendricks County areas. 


After a lengthy investigation, detectives identified Robert L. Evans, Jr., 53, and his son, Robert L. Evans, III, 25, who are the suspects in the ongoing investigation.  Evans, Jr. is from Gary, Indiana, and Evans, III is from Indianapolis. 



Thanks to the vigilance of residents, recent law enforcement interactions with both individuals, and various investigative tools including home security surveillance systems, detectives were able to identify burglaries dating back to December 2022 that have now been linked to the father and son duo. 


Robert Evans, Jr. is being held in the Hendricks County Jail for Burglary of a Dwelling, Burglary while Armed with a Deadly Weapon, Felon in Possession of a Firearm and Theft.  Robert Evans, III is being held in the Hendricks County Jail for the criminal offenses of Burglary of a Dwelling and Burglary while Armed with a Deadly Weapon.
