Four arrested connected to burglaries

Monday, August 16, 2010

Late Monday afternoon, the Clay County Sheriff's Department released the names of four suspects alleged to be involved in a string of Clay County burglaries.

Currently in custody on preliminary burglary charges are James Auberry, 21, Kenneth Harrington, 22, Dirk Daffron, 22, and Daniel Megenhardt, 23, all from Brazil. Auberry, Harrington and Daffron are currently incarcerated at the Clay County Justice Center, while Megenhardt is in custody at the Parke County Jail, pending release and transfer to the local jail facility.

Officials believe these suspects were involved in a recent burglary at Long John Silvers, 1860 West United States 40, Brazil, and items were recovered that allegedly connected these suspects to last year's burglary at the Clay Youth Football League Field and a separate burglary at Pandora's Box Skateboard Shop in Brazil.

Officials also confirmed they have requested warrants for other unidentified suspects in the ongoing investigation into other potential open burglary cases in the area, including at least one in Parke County.

Further details are being withheld to protect the integrity of ongoing investigation.

Have known Auberry since he was a baby. His dad was nothing but trouble, his mom was nothing but trouble, and James has always been trouble. This kid does not care about anyone or anything, except himself. It's time he start being a man, instead of a punk kid. Sadly, prison will probably not help this one at all.

I'm thinking that someone needs a good spade and neuter program for the Harrington's yall.

by doggies, i thought too all the Harringtons WHERE locked up in jail....they must've rolled into town guns a blazin - stole a fish sandwich some footballs and candy from the concession stand!!!! Only to heist themselves a racey skateboard from Pandora's to make a clean get-a-way. Let's hang 'em at sundown.......

i too have known him since birth and it saddens me the turn he has taken with his life, he is a bright kid with so much potential now wasted away, there are many layers to him and his life. i will still hold on to hope that something good will come from this and he will turn himself around. 21 years of age ... so young, prayers to everyone involved and their families

Maybe you should do a back ground check before you have children with guys? I would rather comend the sheriffs department for some great work well done. Glad to see more of this type were they belong.

To elgruener; Hon, I feel so sad for you that you are having children by one of these guys. I am not putting you down but you might want to look into getting your GED and learning to spell. There were so many misspellings in what you wrote I took a while trying to read it. You may not think I know about what I speak but I really do. I once married a scumbag inmate. Wrong thing dear. That lasted about as long as a fart in a whirlwind when he got out. If he can not follow the rules of law, then jail is where he will have to live. I would not feel sorry for him missing your daughters birthday. It is her you need to feel sorry for.

-- Posted by Susan Paloma on Tue, Aug 17, 2010, at 10:58 AM

I hope the prosecuter reminds the Judge that the Youth Football League had to get a donation to replace the PA system that was stolen. RESTITUTION should be mandatory in all of the cases.

Susan, I think you meant for jaj31208 to have your comment, the name below the post is the one who posted it.

Lee, maybe just sitting them down for a nice chat over cookies and milk and having them apologize will work....

Cardonia Redneck......spay is the word you want. A spade is a shovel or a playing card suite. I know it's off topic and I don't mean anything negative...just trying to help. of course, a shovel in reference to this might also be a good possibility!

james didnt do this. you can sit there and talk as much crap as you want about my family.. yes james did wrong in his past.. but he came out of prison a diferent man. he is such a great dad. and to you susan im not sure if you understand people do mess up and his past was not good and thats what they look at. and i dont no if have a family or not but how about this worrie about your own life and leave the people who have nothing to do with your life alone.. you sit there and judge people you dont no.. get a life.. and stay out of ours..

-- Posted by jaj31208 on Tue, Aug 17, 2010, at 3:51 PM

to jaj31208; you said I did not know anything about things like that. You can bet your bottom dollar I do. I am not judging him, 12 will judge him. I do understand that people mess up. Stealing and hurting people is not messing up, it is illegal and hurts other people; that is not a simple mess up dear. Forgetting the sugar when making a pie, or forgetting to put a stamp on a letter. That is a mess up. Stealing from people is a crime, not a mess up. It seems your boyfriend interjected himself into other peoples lives when he did what he did. I have a right to state my opinion on here; and that is not a mess up. You will know years from now when your children are grown and your man is still in jail that he will be where he belongs.

You know what I love about this town? Nothing. Everyone is a hypocrit and a liar. Anyone of you who have done nothing wrong in your past, feel free to slander away. Because without proof, its slander and illegal. If you dont know any of them on a PRESENT personal basis, not when they were a baby or a little kid, but now, then its slander. You are no better than they are. You wanna know why there are so many disrespectful, hateful, law-breaking kids out there? Look at yourself. You all do nothing to remedy the situation. Sit on your lazy hypocritical butts and do nothing. Thats how the town got to be in the shape that its in. Seriously? If you want to see a better town, shut your mouth and be a better person. Snide remarks bring good to no one. Neither does bringing a person's past childhood up. The only accomplishment you do make, is making yourself look like a fool. So here's a tip:keep your mouth shut, support might actually go a long way.

-- Posted by kellymr on Tue, Aug 17, 2010, at 4:47 PM

Claiming he is innocent is crazy. These guys all got busted because when one got caught, they all started singing like birds. Maybe they all did not participate in all of the same burglaries, but they all dang sure had a hand in some of them.

Whoever broke into Long John Silvers stole pie!! Nothing more than pie! How silly is that? What that proves is that whichever ones did it, only did so for the mere fun of it. Unless there is an underground pie market that the rest of us have not heard of.

As for the Youth League equipment, whoever did it should be ashamed. Those little kids should not have to worry about nuisance thieves like this.

All of this stuff is really only petty theft. The problem is that it happened so many times, and whoever did it was not going to stop. We all know that criminals gradually commit worse crimes. If left to continue this activity, what would have been their next step?

Great job to local police for putting a stop to these guys' criminal rampage. Now, with any hope, our court system can keep up their end.

-- Posted by Oldtown on Tue, Aug 17, 2010, at 4:54 PM

to oldtown- Everyone has their own opinion, and i respect that. I have known James all his life, he's not perfect, he's made mistakes, and he will pay for anything he did. There is a reason they have investigations to find out the truth. I agree that if they dont follow society rules then they dont need to be a part of it. But maybe people should wait and find out the whole story and what really happened before they start judging others. He is a bright kid and im upset that he put hisself in this situation. I hope one day he learns to be an adult and work for what he has. I will say that you probably do not know james dad because he's not from here and James just recently met his dad. You cant judge a whole family over what one person does. He has had decent and hard working people around him all his life. He chose the wrong path thats not on his mother or father. Im not going to judge these boys but I am Going to PRAY for them.

-- Posted by lilbabyted on Tue, Aug 17, 2010, at 5:41 PM

all you have to do is read the brazil times and you will see the same names in the paper for crimes against the community. if fact it's the 1st,2nd and 3rd generation of the same families doing all the crime. they all think like thugs and the the community owes them something because they are all to lazy to get a job to stay out of jail, or they only get a job when the courts make them. its like welfare you see the same families generations after generations drawing a welfare check, or stealing both a check and personal property from the hard working tax payer. what is sad the tax payer will get hit a third time by these criminals for a court appointed lawyer to get them off with house arrest.

-- Posted by po-po on Tue, Aug 17, 2010, at 6:07 PM

i most defiantly agree with jaj31208:) :) i'm with kenny and have been for the last three years and trust me no one knows him better then i do, so to sit there and judge someone by just what you see on the news or what you hear on the streets is pathetic, piece of advice don't open your mouth unless you know the facts and obviously almost everyone on here doesn't. i know he did not do this because as jaj says nothing came into my home either, and someone said something bout pies omg it's pies, they were eventually gonna get ate anyways, but it is not a joke it's serious but how bout having a heart for some of these people as in kenny and james because i know them both and their past isn't the greatest but who's is?? no one is perfect they just need a good environment to be around and since they were kids they have not had a chance for that, so instead of running your mouths bout them open up a little and have some hope and faith in them that they can turn to get on the right path. i may not have a daughter with him as does jaj but that's not the point, i have been there with him by his side for three years straight now and i would know if he would do something like this and trust me he wouldn't and he didn't. but yes it is petty but its Brazil so everything is gonna come out to be a big deal, even it's not. and dirk he is also one not to judge either, i have also known him for quite a while now and he is nothing like the news makes him out to look. so just to make it clear to everyone have some respect and keep your mouths shut unless you actually know the truth behind all this!!!!

For those of you talking about the Harrington's ok I will give it to you some of them do not have such a great past. There are however some that do not have a past and are very hard workers and bust their butt's to get what they have. So please do NOT JUDGE all people just because they happen to have the same last name as someone whom may or may not have made bad choices. I am proud to say that 2 of my very best friends last name is Harrington they have 2 daughters that are some very outstanding young ladies. I can absolutely tell you that they are very hard workers and would give you the shirt off their back if you needed it. They are some very special people in my life and at times would not know what to do without them. So please be careful in what you say about a persons family unless you know them ALL. One thing jaja and babygurl have right are these young men are innocent until proven guilty so lets not hang them just yet.

-- Posted by IndyBklyn99 on Tue, Aug 17, 2010, at 8:05 PM


The comment you made of "they were eventually gonna get ate anyways", is nothing short of absolutely absurd. To attempt to justify the criminal actions of a person with a statement like that is exactly what is wrong with a lot of people these days.

It's actually quite comical to see stories of guys like this published in the paper each day, and then to watch people like you make comments to defend them. How many times do we see comments like "he is such a good guy", or "he would give the shirt off his back", and even "he's a hard worker and a good father". Let me give you a bit of worldly advice. Good fathers and husbands don't set examples for their kids by being thieves. Good fathers and husbands work hard for the things they bring home to their families, so that they can be proud of what they have.

Come on yall-Ladies if you knew your men so well then I guess you knew they Are HOODRATS right?Let the little perps do there time.And you should be so proud,Cause those are Your Lil' PERP'S Stand proud girls.And figure out how to explain to your kids why daddy's in jail again.BUT HE DIDN'T DO ANYTHING!! Of course Mr.I.M.Lee Annoying-Thal. Go ahead tell me how bad I did?

-- Posted by Cardonia Redneck on Tue, Aug 17, 2010, at 8:59 PM

This is the most amusing thread of comments I have read in a LONG time.

The two girls defending their "Boyz" have a 4th grade education level which is really sad.

-- Posted by Thorn44 on Tue, Aug 17, 2010, at 11:08 PM

i would just like to say to everyone that james and kenny are not as bad as what the news or the paper or the street talk makes them out to be, once you have been with someone for so long and know every little tiny thing about them they are not as bad as you think. yes they have made mistakes, big mistakes, but that doesn't mean they have to be hated for the rest of their lives, no one on the world deserves that. and to the person who says that one of these guys supposebly raped her daughter i would know for a FACT it was not mine because he is defiantly not no child molester, but if your talking about any of the other ones that's on them and is not my problem. but i would like to try and tell everybody just put aside what they have done wrong in their past life and recently and see the goodness they have in them, because until i met kenny i didn't expect him to be as sweet and caring and loving as he is, but i'm not sticking up for him if that's what everyone thinks, no i think it is ridiculous and stupid what he did if he did, but in my mind i would know if he did something like that and trust me he didn't. but i wish some people in brazil would actually have a heart once in awhile but everyday it seems more and more hard for me to believe that will ever happen with all the drama that goes on around in this town. and all these comments i understand are just people's opinions but their also very hurtful towards me and jaj, but maybe no one thought about it that way or just didn't care, to get to the point and what it comes down to, maybe not for them but me and jaj think before you speak please.

-- Posted by sweetheart90 on Wed, Aug 18, 2010, at 2:44 AM

and i would also like to relay a message to jaj, don't feel alone ever, because i'm in the same boat, don't let people bring you down, you just gotta keep your head up and keep preyin and don't let faith slip out of your hands, i'm there wit ya day and night, you know you can always count on me!!!! jus always remember this saying "what doesn't kill us, just makes us stronger" and also my favorite saying of all..."everything happens for a reason" me and you may not know what that reason is but soon enough we will come to realize what is no matter how long it takes :)

-- Posted by sweetheart90 on Wed, Aug 18, 2010, at 2:49 AM

you know what??? 4th grade grade education level but as i said before don't open ur mouths til you know the facts and i'm guessin you don't because trust me they are a whole lot smarter then most people out there jus play dumb so they don't really know who they are on the inside, and i'm sorry our lives are not as perfect as everyone else's but we can't change ourselves over night. oh that comment i made yea hilarious huh??? i'm jus sayin i'm not sticking up for any of them, if they did it their doin their time for it, why can't people leave it at that, oh but wait i forgot brazil's drama never stops and it just goes on and on. this is OUR lives so jaj and also myself would like for people to stay out of it. you can think what you want, but really what it comes down to is you live in brazil and you want something to talk about that has to do with drama and this is it. so how bout everyone out there just keep their opinions to their selves i highly suggest that you don't judge a book by its cover because on the inside you never know what your gonna find. you may know their past history and their family but that has nothing to do with how they are now, they may look bad at this point but their gonna have the last laughs whenever they can show everyone that they can make a difference in their life and grow up to be the exact different then how they were raised. trust me i do not feel sorry for them, it is really hard to go through and the comments i'm reading are really not helping out much but that doesn't mean i'm not going to be my man's side because i always will be, everyone in the whole world needs some support from someone sometime in their life, because without it you would have no one and that would just make you feel worse inside and out. so please don't do it for them but me and jaj's sake think before you speak.

-- Posted by sweetheart90 on Wed, Aug 18, 2010, at 3:10 AM

Drama in Brazil isn't the only thing that goes on and on, SWEETHEART. You might want to read the UPDATE on the burglaries.

I'd say the biggest problem facing these guys right now (and in the past) is someone always providing an "out" for them or an excuse for why they steal. Lessons are rarely repeated when a person has to atone for their mistakes (choices).

For me, it isn't about them being "bad people", it's about the crime and restitution.

-- Posted by Emmes on Wed, Aug 18, 2010, at 11:18 AM

ok so after reading all the comments i realize you guys do hate james and kenny.. well james is a wounderful dad and a great soon to be husbond.. and kenny is a great god father.. you can sit there and think what you want i dont care any more.. but next time b4 you decide to put your fingure on the key bord remiember the only one who ammited to doing all these crimes is not in jail he is walking the streets.. he has not even been in cuffs yet.. im not talking about dirk. yeah theres a 5th person. but you can sit on here and talk as much crap as you want.. im standing behind my man and kenny.. and to sweetheart im here for you too.. and to upset momma i do believe i know who you are talking about and im so sorry you had to go threw that, james and i just went threw that as well.. and i do hope the guy who did it sits in there and rots.. and the updates are only to tell you they still no nothing, just one lil boy saying who was supposted to be with him. but like i said he is still walking the streets.. wow what good the cops are doing.. and i do no james did not do it he was not even in brazil at the time of the long johns and neither was kenny. so to you all who want to talk bad about my man keep your comments to your selves. why dont you worrie about the parents with meth labs in there home with small children in them (brazil is big for that)

-- Posted by jaj31208 on Wed, Aug 18, 2010, at 12:39 PM

and to lilbabyted i dont know who you are but thank you so much for realizing james is a good man.. he did do worng in his past but our daughter made him change. and im really sorry for the lives that james has hurt in the past.. but people need to realize the past is the past, look forward not behind you, and that was what james and i were doing. he is a great man, and he is not guilty sorry to all of you who think he did this but this time they have the wrong man..

This is not the person that is logged in but just a friend. People are always so quick to judge someone else but in the Bible it states clear out the stuff in your own eye before you judge what's in someone's eye. Everyone in Brazil should have the Lord in their lives. Go to church. If parents lead the lives that God intented for you to have then as parents we teach our kids at an early age about the wrongs and rights so when they get older the will go the right way. So get God in your lives and stop judging because God is the only one that can judge. Try God he is wonderful and glorious.

lady i can not spell it out any better for you 23k in back support would tell you i know something about the way the harrington's work. but with you still working on getting your g.e.d i will wait and let you learn for yourself. also think of what po-po stands for on the streets. then you will know that i do know what i'm talking about.

Your so right. Jaj I am not judging you but if you do not want people in your business then do not post on here. Trust me I know how it is. Been where you are at with one of my family members. Yes, it does hurt to read the comments so don't read them. Just go on with your life and take care of your daughter and things will fall where they may.

-- Posted by IndyBklyn99 on Wed, Aug 18, 2010, at 7:27 PM

This is so much better than Jerry Springer! This could be a book. I think we all know that the police in any town is not going to just go and arrest someone just because of their last name! Let's see we have stolen pies (that were going to be eaten anyway,(someone was going to BUY THEM FIRST) is that an excuse?), a PA system for children and breaking into a skate board shop! It really doesn't matter how petty the crime is IT IS STILL A CRIME!!!! If you don't want your business to be known than I agree with Indyblyn99 don't post it! I don't know any of them but if your honey misses his daughter's 3rd birthday maybe he can bake her a pie! (or steal one)! And maybe he can steal you a dictionary.

-- Posted by Former Brazilian on Wed, Aug 18, 2010, at 11:12 PM

to vicky howard. yes my comment was a little immature and i now regret that, but it is all over and done with but still people are posting up things over the whole situation, its not your nor is anyone else's life, so stay out of it, just as jaj said, we are going through a lot at this point currently, and these comments are not helping much AT ALL!!!! but do not be talking about someone's family when you don't even know them, especially do not be talking about their daughter, the reason so offended is for the simple fact that is my niece and i would appreciate it also would jaj if people would leave her out of this whole situation, its pretty pathetic enough people have to open their mouth's about something they have no clue about but its even more pathetic when they bring a 2 year old in it. but we are dealing with this our own way and we most defiantly don't need people getting into our business trying to tell us what we should or need to do with our lives. just because our boyfriends are in jail doesn't mean it effects our lives but it does and everyone on here is just making it worse, leave it at that!!!!

Wow. And so everyone bad mouthing each other like stupid children is how we support each other? This is how we show our kids that you are suppose to behave and act when something you dont like happens? Funny, the girls that have the boyfriends in jail, however wrong the guys may be, who the hell made it any of your business to tear down the girls? The only thing they want is for you all to back off. Excuse me for my rudeness, but since when did we decide that a last name decides who you are? Was all of Hitlers family like him? Was all of Einsteins family like him? Was all of Marilyn Manson's family like him? The answer is NO. So no matter how bad you may view the family, to judge their kids for the same things is stupid, small minded, and as uneducated as any of the other "poorly grammatical" people you tear down. How about this:for everything your father ever did and your mother ever did, lets put you on spotlight and judge you for those and then spread it throughout town. Still like the idea? I'm thinking not. Because everyone makes mistakes. No matter how big or small, its still a mistake. Oh, your parents got divorced, you will too. Why? Cuz your parents did. No, thats just a bunch of garbage. The reason we have school and the clay youth league in my opinion, is to save our kids from the likes of you all. I certainly know now, that I do not feel safe leaving my kids in a town full of imature, hypocritical, ignorant, "know it alls" that are suppose to share wisdom and knowlege with the future generations. Instead, they tear them down and judge them. If you aren't going to offer hope, and a chance to change, shut up and get out of the way so some one else can, cuz certainly none of you are man enough to stand up against the gossip and opinion.

I love how you guys sit there and slam her on spelling really? On a computer when your typing fast MISTAKES happen. Oh well girl don't listen to these people because they are all perfect and have perfect friends and family. They do no wrong. Pathetic people who sit on the computer bashing people.

There is a difference between typing fast and missing something on accident, and completely obliterating the English language.

As I read the post on this topic I could not help but think about the youth in this town and what we have offered them. When I was younger I remember much more focus on activities for teens. Gradually as time went on many of the recreational facilities were shut down. There was a program a few years ago at the old Brazil Jr. High that offered kids of all ages activities but there was no town support and the monetary means came from a church from Greencastle. That too had to close its doors for lack of financing. I volunteered many hours of my time in that building with the hope of getting these kids off of the streets and in a safe enviroment, but I could not get other parents to do the same. Many of those parents were glad to send their chilren there, but that was it. We also did charitable work like taking food to people that needed it. Not just low income family's but to the working class and each time I would hand out a flyer asking for volunteers and in the three years I ran the activities not one person offered their time. I just keep thinking that if people cared about their community and these kids where were they? Maybe if you would have volunteered you would have been the one influence that affected these boys lives in a positive way. Maybe their choices would have been different. I am not passing blame for what these boys choices were because we should all be held accountable for our mistakes but we as a society must take some of the blame if we offer them nothing more than sitting in parking lots killing time. I would also like to address that even the best parents have kids that do not always do the right thing. We as parents can guide our children but we can not know every second of the day what they are doing.

THORN44, you must be the one who calls in to give an opinion and votes "doesn't matter". If you don't care, then don't post.
