WABASH CO., Ill. - Wabash County Sheriff Derek Morgan and deputies had a tense situation yesterday evening (Wednesday, August 8) at a rural location in the county involving a family being held hostage by a man with a rifle.

Morgan said that at approximately 8:42 p.m.last night, Wabash County 911 received a call of a man holding his wife and another family member against their will. Furthermore the caller advised that the man was armed with an AR-style rifle and was threatening to shoot them and their vehicles.

When the Sheriff's Office arrived on scene, two subjects were seen fleeing the residence and seeking shelter in a nearby barn.

The Sheriff's Office was able to get the female and other occupant away from the barn safely and they were transported into Mt. Carmel by the Mt. Carmel Police. Several attempts were made to contact the male inside the residence which were unsuccessful.

As units from the Sheriff's Office, Mt. Carmel Police Department and Illinois State Police were forming, however, the male emerged from the garage area and was taken into custody without incident.

The male subject was identified as Troy A. Hinderliter, 52 of Mt. Carmel. Hinderliter made a first appearance today (Thursday, August 9) in Wabash County Court, where he was advised of two charges against him. 

The two-count charge is for Aggravated Unlawful Restraint, both Class 3 felonies. Hinderliter's bond had been set at $40,000 or $4,000 cash, and he remains in custody at the Wabash County Jail pending the posting of that bond.
