Ammonia gas-leak suspects held

Police have arrested two men suspected of causing a dangerous ammonia gas leak that forced hundreds of people from their
Taylorsville homes on Tuesday. Russell Rossman, 34, of Edinburgh and Kevin Edwards, 37, of Columbus were being held without
bond Thursday in the Bartholomew County Jail on preliminary charges of attempted theft. Authorities believe the men tried
to steal anhydrous ammonia from a tank at a farm north of Columbus early Tuesday, causing a leak that triggered the evacuation
of hundreds of people from their homes. Fox59 will have more at 4 p.m.
