Entry Description

Rockport: Detectives with the Jasper Post of the Indiana State Police have arrested two subjects for the armed robbery of a Chrisney liquor store earlier this month.

On February 25, detectives followed up on a tip with information regarding who may have been responsible for the February 5, 2014 armed robbery of North Side Liquors, 306 North Main Street, Chrisney. Through the course of the investigation, detectives discovered that Alec M. Meredith, 18, Rockport, was the armed gunman who had entered the store, stealing cash from the store clerk. Investigators additionally learned that Meredith had a driver, Justin Meserve, 19, Rockport, who had transported Meredith to the liquor store and had waited in the vehicle for Meredith to come out.

On Wednesday, February 26, detectives and troopers arrested Meredith at his home in Rockport. Meserve was located in Indianapolis later in the evening and arrested on armed robbery charges. Both Meredith and Meserve were transported and lodged in the Spencer County Security Center.

Information learned by detectives additionally solved an armed robbery in Kentucky. A convenience store in Masonville, Kentucky was robbed on February 10, 2014. In this case, Meredith and Keith W. Philhower, 28, entered the store, while Meserve again drove the vehicle. The Daviess County, Kentucky Sheriff’s Department is currently investigating the February 10 robbery and is actively looking for Philhower. Anyone with information on the location of Philhower is asked to contact the Indiana State Police, Jasper Post at 800-742-7475 (in Indiana) or 812-482-1441, or the Daviess County, KY Sheriff’s Department at 270-685-8444
