Two Garrett men face charges after a deer was allegedly shot with
the use of a spotlight in Allen County on Sunday morning.
The men, ages 35 and 45, allegedly admitted to shooting the deer
with a high-powered rifle while illuminating it with a spotlight on
West Road, near Shoaff Road, according to a news release from the
Indiana Natural Resources Department. Both men were charged with
multiple hunting violations, as well as traffic citations.
An Allen County Sheriff’s Department officer allegedly found an
antlered deer in the bed of the pickup and, during a search after a
conservation officer arrived, two high-powered rifles, a spotlight,
and a handgun were found, according to the release.
