HENDRICKS COUNTY -- Indiana State Police detectives have arrested two Danville men for allegedly committing burglaries at two Danville area churches.
On Monday, Indiana State Police Putnamville detectives Jeff Hearon and Bill Dalton were on the west side of Indianapolis investigating leads obtained about additional burglaries in Clay and Putnam Counties.
While at a pawnshop parking lot, the detectives made contact with Shane Gehrich, 18, and Daniel Brock, 20, both of Danville. They were apparently in the company of an unidentified female driving a silver 2000 Jeep.
During the course of the investigation, the detectives were able to recover from the jeep, electronic equipment that allegedly had been stolen the night before from two churches in Danville, including the Chaplewood Baptist Church and the Hendricks Community Bible Church.
Gehrich and Brock were transported to the Hendricks County Jail without incident and each is being held on a $50,000 commercial bond. While being booked into the jail, Brock was found to be in possession of numerous tablets in an unmarked pill bottle.
Gehrich was booked on preliminary charges of two counts class B felony burglary, while Brock was booked on two counts of class B felony burglary and one count of class D felony possession of a schedule IV drug.
Officials confirmed the female companion was not charged with a crime and will not be identified.
No information is available at this time regarding the potential filing of criminal charges in Clay County against either suspect.
