A Harrison Township man is facing two class D felonies after allegedly pointing his rifle at and fleeing from Indiana Conservation Officers Sunday, Nov. 11.

Edward B. Jones is charged with pointing a firearm and resisting law enforcement while armed with a deadly weapon, both class D felonies. More charges could be filed pending further investigation, said ICO Cpl. Bill Beville.

Conservation officers were at a property on Jamison Road, Harrison Township, to investigate a complaint that Jones had been hunting without consent on the property of Dean Ziegler, according to affidavit of probable cause field by Indiana Conservation Officer Matthew Hicks.

The man who made the complaint told conservation officers “on two occasions Jones had pointed the rifle at” him.

The man also said Jones always took the same direction on the same path, and conservation officers could follow Jones.
