ANGOLA, IN - The Steuben County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's assistance in locating a male subject wanted out of Steuben County.

The Steuben Superior Court issued an arrest warrant for 51 year old Donald Gene Squires of rural Howe, IN (issued on On 01/27/2023).

Squires is being charged with 2 counts of OWI causing Death and 1 count of OWI causing Catastrophic Injury. All three alleged offenses are level 4 felonies.

The arrest warrant comes after several months of investigation into a motor vehicle crash that occurred back in August of 2022 on State Road 120 near County Road 850 W in Steuben County's rural Milgrove Township.
