Columbus police originally went to a residence on North County Road 150W to handle a complaint about a loud stereo. But they ended up arresting a wanted man.

Officers were called to the noise complaint at about 7:30 p.m. last night. But while in the area they noticed 23-year-old Larry R. Evans of North Vernon outside of a nearby apartment. Officers recognized Evans as being wanted on an outstanding warrant but when they talked to him, he allegedly gave them a fake name.

In addition to an outstanding Bartholomew County warrant, he is now facing a preliminary charge of false informing.
