Man Arrested for Child Molestation


A Fountain County man is in a Montgomery County jail cell, after police arrested him on multiple charges of child molestation.

On Friday, Indiana State Police detectives arrested 70-year-old Paul M. Crowder of Covington, Indiana, on three felony counts of child molestation.

A preliminary investigation, conducted by ISP, alleges on multiple occasions, Crowder engaged in sexual activity with two girls under the age of 16. The acts occurred at different locations in Montgomery County.

The investigation started after allegations of Crowder’s acts surfaced in March of this year, and were reported to the Indiana Department of Child Services.

Crowder remains in the Montgomery County Jail and faces three Level 1 felony counts of child molestation.
