NEW MARKET, Ind. (WISH) — A 33-year-old Bunker Hill man wanted in three September armed robberies was arrested Friday after a 2-hour standoff with authorities.

Officers arrived around 4 p.m. Friday at 4299 West 700 South in Montgomery County to arrest Devin Ewoldt on active warrants out of Boone and Montgomery counties. He ran into a house at that address and would not come out, state police said in a Friday release.
