Indianapolis man faces charges in new robbery

An Indianapolis man with an armed robbery conviction was charged again Wednesday with robbery after a loss-prevention employee at a local department store told police the man stole clothing and pointed a gun at him when confronted last year.

Wesley K. Fields, 33, faces charges of robbery, possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon and theft.

According to the probable cause affidavit, a Von Maur loss-prevention employee noticed Fields acting suspiciously and suspected he was trying to steal clothes in November.

After Fields left the changing room, the employee confronted him in the parking lot after realizing the clothes Fields took in the room were gone, court records said.

The employee told police he chased Fields to a car and that Fields pointed a gun at him.

Police found Fields in custody at the Huntington County Jail on unrelated charges. Fields acknowledged he was the one in the Von Maur security photos but denied he had a gun with him or stole anything, according to the affidavit.

Fields has previous felony convictions for burglary, battery and robbery, according to the Indiana Department of Correction.
