Neighbor stops burglary

Observant neighbors interrupted a burglary at a residence near Osgood on Tuesday.

At approximately 9:58 a.m., Ripley County Sheriff’s Deputies and Indiana State Police Officers responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle and a male removing items from a barn located at a residence on CR 700 north.

Arriving on scene officers discovered Aaron D. Powers, 26, attempted to flee the residence prior to police arrival; however, the neighbor detained him, and he got his vehicle stuck in the yard of the residence.

Powers, who was found to be in possession of stolen property from the property, was arrested and transported to the Ripley County Jail where he was incarcerated for Theft, Class D Felony pending bond of $1,050.00.

The incident is currently being investigated by Sgt/Det. Abraham Hildebrand of the Ripley County Sheriff’s Office.
