Five taken into custody after SRT called to 1600 S. 9th


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Multiple people were taken into custody in the area of 9th and Seabury after the Terre Haute Police Department’s Special Response Team was called out.

THPD SRT was at 1600 S. 9th Street near the intersection of 9th and Seabury Avenue to serve a warrant for Christopher Bays for attempted aggravated batter with a deadly weapon. On July 9 THPD SRT was called to the scene of 9th and Seabury for an incident involving Bays. Charges of domestic battery were filed against him for that incident.

An official at the scene on Friday used a megaphone and repeatedly called out asking anyone inside the home at 1600 S. 9th to come out with their hands up.

News 10’s Chief Photojournalist Mike Latta first witnessed three males coming out of the house and were then taken into police custody. A fourth male and a female later came out of the house and were also taken into custody. One of those males was Bays.

Officials then ensured there were no others inside the house.

“We’ll look at the whole, the totality of the circumstances,” Assistant Police Chief Shawn Keen said. “We’ll interview these people and that’s where our goal is right now. We’ll talk to them individually. We also have to finish conducting a search of the residence. “ provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
