Hendricks County Sheriff’s Detectives Arrest Jamestown Man and Former Avon Scout Troop Leader for Child Molestation

Kevin Coley

AVON – On 06/22/2022 at approximately 8:40 pm Kevin Coley, a 47-year-old Jamestown man was booked into the Hendricks County Jail on 14 counts of felony charges including child molest, sexual misconduct with a minor and vicarious sexual conduct. 

Coley’s arrest stems from an investigation that was reported to Hendricks County Detectives in February of 2022, when an adult male bravely came forward to report that he had been subjected to inappropriate sexual contact by one of his Avon Scout Troop elders as far back as 2012. 

Hendricks County Detectives and Crime Scene Investigators executed a search warrant and arrest warrant at Coley’s Jamestown home on 6/1/22.  Coley was subsequently located and arrested in Citrus County Florida and extradited back to Indiana to face the criminal charges.  Coley is being held at the Hendricks County Jail with a $100,000 cash bond. 

At this time, there are four known victims in this case.  If anyone has any information about this case or knows of any additional incidents involving Coley, they are encouraged to contact Sgt. Chandler at the Hendricks County Sheriff’s Office at 317.745.4033. 

All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
