SWAT team helps nab suspect

A local SWAT team was called after a Nineveh resident refused to surrender when police came to arrest him for a warrant.

Jason Yager, 27, was arrested after police found him hiding under some insulation in an attic in a house in the 500 block of West Fishers Drive. Prince’s Lakes police came to arrest Yager after he failed to show up to a court hearing.

Yager was charged with a misdemeanor charge of conversion in April 2013. He missed a court date for that case on Thursday and the judge issued a warrant for his arrest. Yager is also facing charges of criminal confinement and battery causing bodily injury in a separate case. Those charges were filed by the county prosecutor’s office on April 2.
