The investigators left with the intention of filing paperwork with the Wells County prosecutor.
The next day, Crouse dropped off a pickup truck at the EMS headquarters in Bluffton, according to the affidavit. In the bed of the truck were two generators, a garden tiller, paint, tile, grout, kitchen tile, drawer pulls and miscellaneous EMS equipment.
Dropping that equipment off at EMS headquarters, however, did not keep prosecutors from filing formal charges against Crouse and it didn't keep her out of jail.
She was arrested days later.
