Man being held on half million $ bond for Child Molesting

        A man wanted for Child Molesting in Daviess County is back in Daviess County after being arrested following a nearly five hour stand off Wednesday near Owensville in Gibson County.

        US Marshals, Indiana State Police and Gibson County officers responded to a residence on Gibson County Road 525 South near Owensville to serve an arrest warrant on 30-year-old Aaron Riggs at 2:30-pm on Wednesday.  Police say he had barricaded himself on the second floor of the home.  Riggs refused to surrender to police throughout the afternoon. Finally, the State Police SWAT team went in and found Riggs in a crawl space in the attic.

        He was arrested without incident and was taken to the Gibson County Jail.  Today’s arrest reports from the Daviess County Security Center show he was booked into jail here yesterday.  He’s charged with Child Molesting, Obstruction of Justice and Invasion of Privacy. Bond has been set at a half-million dollars.
