PULASKI COUNTY, IN – Douglas Scholz, a North Carolina man wanted on nationwide extradition felony arrest warrants for alleged first-degree kidnapping, has been apprehended in Indiana. 

The Rockingham County Sheriff’s Office in North Carolina requested assistance from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department after Scholz was believed to have fled the state and was possibly in Pulaski County, armed and dangerous. 

After searching the possible area on US 421, deputies from Starke County, Jasper County, and Pulaski County located Scholz in his vehicle. A high-risk traffic stop was performed, and Scholz was apprehended without incident. 

A search of the vehicle led to the discovery of the firearm used in the criminal act in North Carolina. 

Scholz is now awaiting extradition back to North Carolina to face charges. 

The victim’s name has not been released, and anyone with information on Scholz’s whereabouts prior to his arrest should contact the Rockingham County Crime Stoppers Tipline or call 9-1-1.
