Around 4:40 p.m. on Friday, a state trooper found an abandoned vehicle was disabled and partially in the roadway on State Road 63 in Vigo County.

While examining the vehicle, Trooper Fyfe noticed a large amount of guns and a small generator in the back seat, according to ISP.

Police say that's when a man with a gas can was riding a bike towards Trooper Fyfe.

The man was identified as 26-year-old Cody Doss of Terre Haute.

As Doss was approaching on his bike, Trooper Fyfe ordered him to stop but he ignored the request.

Police found a combination of 15 shotguns/rifles, three handguns, a generator, and controlled substances in the vehicle.

Doss was taken into custody and was transported to the Vigo County Jail where he is currently being detained.

Doss was arrested on the following charges:

  • Theft of FireArm, Level 6 Felony
  • Unlawful Possession of a Legend Drug, Felony 6
  • Unauthorized Entry of a Motor Vehicle, Class A Misdemeanor

Anyone that has any information of stolen rifles/shotguns or handguns please contact Trooper Brad Fyfe of the Putnamville State Police Post at 1-800-225-8576.

During the investigation, the owner of the guns was found and the firearms were returned.

"The owner was grateful the guns were found, due to sentimental values and public safety," ISP said.
