HENDRICKS COUNTY, Ind. — After a long investigation, a Hendricks County teenager was arrested, and is believed to be involved in several shootings.
The Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office arrested 19-year-old Noah Phillips at his home in Clayton, Indiana back on October 29th. The investigation was a team effort between Indianapolis Metro Police, the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team, and Indiana State Police Emergency Response Team.
The investigation led to a search warrant of Phillips’ home, where police seized several different kinds of guns, an AR-15, ammo, magazines, marijuana, and a 3D printable AR-15 full auto drop-in sear, which IMPD says can turn any AR-15 fully automatic.
Phillips is accused of having some kind of connection to several shootings, including one incident where a shot was fired into a home. Someone inside the home was struck by the bullet. IMPD did not give any other specific examples. He’s facing charges of possession of a machine gun, operation of a loaded machine gun, and possession of marijuana.
Phillips was released on November 16th from the Hendricks County jail on a work release pending trial.
