Suspect in Wednesday barricade situation is identified


We now know the name of a man at the center of a barricade situation on Wednesday.

Austin Wilson is in the Vigo County Jail on $15,000 bond. He was wanted for failure to appear in a case stemming from May of 2018.

On Wednesday afternoon, officers went to a home in the 800 block of N 13 1/2 Street to serve a warrant.

That’s when police say Wilson barricaded himself inside.

The Special Response Team was called in to assist and Wilson was eventually taken into custody without incident.
