FISHERS -

Police in three counties are searching for the person who struck a Colfax officer working off-duty security at a Geist-area gas station late Sunday night.

Just before midnight, Deputy Chief Joshua Robertson noticed a white pickup that he termed "suspicious" parked at the Shell station at 96th and Olio Road.  He approached the truck to speak to the driver, once the driver came out of the station.

The driver started to drive away.

"My hand got caught in the tailgate of his truck," Robertson said, "and he dragged me about 15 feet, flipped me in the air and I landed on my stomach."  His injuries were not serious.

The truck, a 2003 white Ford Ranger, was driven by a white male, approximately 6 feet tall, 150 pounds, wearing a ball cap, according to Robertson.

It may have been involved in burglaries in the neighborhoods near the gas station.

Police in Hancock, Hamilton and Marion counties have been advised to be on the lookout for the white truck with an Ohio license tag.
