BARTHOLOMEW COUNTY, Ind. — Bartholomew County deputies are searching for a suspect who should be considered "armed and dangerous" and was driving a stolen SUV that was found in Nashville, Tennessee.

Around 3:30 a.m. on Tuesday, a Bartholomew County sheriff's deputy initiated a traffic stop on northbound Interstate 65. The vehicle, which was wanted in connection with an armed robbery in Nashville, Tennessee, fled the scene, leading to a pursuit.

The car eventually crashed and rolled multiple times, and two suspects then fled on foot, officials said. A 16-year-old was later located at a residence and taken to Columbus Regional Hospital for what officials said appears to be non-life-threatening injuries.

Deputies and officials from multiple agencies have been unable to locate the second suspect, who the Bartholomew County Sheriff's Department said is allegedly armed with a handgun. The suspect was described by police as a man wearing a black T-shirt, jeans and a gray toboggan.

A short time later, deputies were dispatched to a vehicle theft at a Waffle House in Taylorsville, Indiana. The same suspect is believed to have stolen the car there, a 2016 white Kia Sportage with the license plate GCW271.

Bartholomew County officials said the stolen Kia was found Wednesday morning in Nashville, Tennessee, but the suspect was not found.
