Crawfordsville Police Arrest Two In Connection With Armed Robbery

Two Terre Haute residents, Shane Dentler, 18, and Sheena Steigmeyer, 30, were arrested shortly after an armed robbery at the Speedway Gas Station located at 1811 Indianapolis Road early Friday morning.

At 3:56 a.m. police received a call that a male had just entered the Speedway station and showed a gun and demanded money.

A description of the man, the car and what direction the vehicle was heading was given to the police. Almost immediately, a silver Chevy Spark matching the description was spotted heading westbound into town by Patrol Officer Lawyer Wintin. Wintin pulled the vehicle over and detained the subjects. During further investigation police found a weapon, cash, methamphetamine, syringes and other stolen property.

Also, inside the vehicle was a female, later identified as Steigmeyer.

“We got a great description of the suspect and car and what direction they were headed which helped us out tremendously,” Crawfordsville Detective David Long said. “Then we had an officer spot the vehicle just minutes later.”

The vehicle was pulled over by Wintin at 4 a.m. just four minutes after the robbery was reported.

Dentler was charged with armed robbery, possession of methamphetamine, possession of syringes and possession of stolen property. Steigmeyer was charged with aiding in an armed robbery, possession of methamphetamine, possession of syringes and possession of stolen property. Dentler also had an outstanding warrant in another county. 

Both suspects were booked into the Montgomery County Jail. 

Police are asking that if anyone has any other information to contact Det. Long at 362-3762, ext. 217.
