Indiana State Police arrest Alabama homicide suspect in rural Delaware County
By Joe Schroeder,
DELAWARE COUNTY, Ind. — Indiana State Police have arrested an Alabama man suspected of committing a homicide back home after he was found in rural Delaware County.
ISP said troopers from the Pendleton District stopped a car around 4 p.m. Wednesday for speeding on State Road 35 near Mt. Pleasant after several citizen complaints of a vehicle driving recklessly in the area.
The trooper found that the driver, identified by ISP as Teddy Donnell Cozart, had an active arrest warrant for an Alabama homicide. The 20-year-old man from Andalusia, Alabama was driving a red Ford Focus, ISP said.
According to the Andalusia Police Department, the warrant for Cozart’s arrest stemmed from an alleged incident in October of 2022 where a man was shot and killed while driving away from a local apartment complex.
Cozart, ISP said, was arrested by troopers and taken to the Delaware County Jail where he is currently awaiting extradition back to Alabama.
