Police went to investigate a report of people exposing themselves only to find out one suspect was wanted for murder hundreds of miles away.
Indianapolis police officers responded to a suspicious activity report and people exposing themselves inside a car near E. 9th Street & Emerson Avenue at about 10:15 a.m. on March 10, according to the agency.
When officers arrived, they detained Tarian Evans, 19, after finding an illegal handgun, marijuana and a murder warrant out of Houston.
“This was an outstanding arrest resulting from a simple phone call. It proved working together works, and the police and community are a great team,” Indianapolis police said in announcing the arrest.

Evans was charged with killing 51-year-old Tommy Williams, who Houston police identified as the father of Evans' girlfriend. Williams went to an apartment to pick up his daughter to take them to a Superbowl party on Feb. 8.
When Williams knocked on the door, the daughter said she would not leave, according to Houston police.
Evans reportedly came to the door during the argument and fatally shot Williams multiple times in his torso and right leg.
Evans is currently being held in an Indiana jail on the murder warrant.
