COLUMBUS, Ind. — A former Columbus and Jennings County resident who owned a North Vernon auto dealership awaits extradition to Indiana to face multiple federal and state felony charges after eluding police for more than a year.
Federal marshals arrested Courtney Lee Crouch Sr., 55, on March 17 in Baldwin County in Alabama, a community near the Gulf of Mexico. He faces charges involving drug-dealing, illegal possession of firearms and submitting false documents to the FBI. The charges stem from two incidents in 2011.
