St. Paul man faces sexual misconduct charges

Suspect discovered in North Carolina

Greensburg — A St. Paul man was arrested Monday on charges of sexual misconduct with a minor after being discovered by police in North Carolina.

According to an Affidavit of Probable Cause filed Sept. 27 in Decatur Circuit Court, Roy Daniel Yeager, 45, became the subject of an investigation by the Indiana State Police due to an alleged inappropriate incident with a 15-year-old girl.

Charging Information filed the same day states Yeager kissed and inappropriately touched the girl “during a period of time from Dec. 1, 2011 to April 1, 2012.” The incident is alleged to have occurred at Yeager’s residence at some point during that time period.

The charge of Sexual Misconduct with a Minor is a Class “B” Felony.

Yeager was arrested Monday by the Decatur County Sheriff’s Department following issuance of a bench warrant for his arrest.

The warrant was issued in late September, but authorities were initially unable to locate the suspect.

According to information from Decatur County Sheriff Greg Allen, an ISP Detective investigating the case worked with authorities in Brunswick County, N.C., finally discovering Yeager’s location.

The Sheriff said the suspect waived extradition back to Indiana and was taken into custody by Special Deputy Dustin Barkdull and DCSD Lt. Rick Underhill over the weekend.

Yeager’s arrest is one of several in which the Decatur County Sheriff’s Department has crisscrossed the country in order to bring back individuals facing serious charges.

Previously, deputies have traveled to Florida, Texas and Connecticut to acquire suspects facing charges in Decatur County.

The Sheriff warned that attempting to evade law enforcement is a fruitless endeavor.

“You’d better be looking over your shoulder,” said the Sheriff. “Because somebody’s gonna come knocking.”

Yeager remained incarcerated in the Decatur County Jail at press time Tuesday. A cash bond in the amount of $10,005 was set for the suspect Monday.
