Upon interviewing Doss, the trooper learned he had an agreement with a woman in regards to using her vehicle as a driving service for her, with financial reimbursement being paid to Doss for this service. But further investigation revealed Doss had failed to return the vehicle back to the rightful owner and was operating the vehicle without proper authorization from the owner.

A combination of 15 shotguns/rifles, three handguns, a generator, and a controlled substance were located during an inventory of the vehicle.

Doss was taken into custody and was transported to Vigo County Jail. He faces the following charges:

  • Theft of FireArm, Level 6 Felony
  • Unlawful Possession of a Legend Drug, Felony 6
