The two were wanted for two separate burglaries involving a deadly weapon earlier this month.

In a release, the ISP said troopers began an investigation on Monday into the whereabouts of the two suspects, 27-year-old Robert Knox and 18-year-old Lili Robinette.

Police determined both subjects were a high risk to public safety.

The ISP said officers found Knox hiding in an outbuilding in Orleans Tuesday night.

He was taken into custody with the help of a police K-9.

The ISP said Robinette surrendered to authorities about an hour later.

Both were booked into the Dubois County Jail.

Knox faces preliminary charges of Burglary with a Deadly Weapon and Burglary of a Dwelling.

Robinette is charged with Residential Breaking and Entering.
