Third suspect in custody

Thursday, August 11, 2011

Ricky Anello
On Thursday, law enforcement officials from Clay County, in conjunction with the United States Marshal's Fugitive Task Force and Indianapolis Metro Police apprehended the third man linked to a home break-in Aug. 4.

Clay County Sheriff's Department (CCSD) Det. Jerry Siddons told The Brazil Times Ricky Anello, 20, Brazil, was arrested without incident Thursday morning at a home on the west side of Indianapolis.

"It went very well," Siddons said. "We work very well with the fugitive task force. They are always willing to help us."

Siddons said CCSD officials received an anonymous tip Thursday at approximately 8:30 a.m., informing officials Anello was at the home.

Siddons said he then contacted the task force and Indianapolis Metro Police.

Officials with the task force scoped the house and saw a vehicle -- a White Dodge Avenger with a busted window -- matching the description of one Anello was believed to be using.

Anello was apprehended between 10-10:30 a.m. Siddons said he was found sleeping in the vehicle.

Siddons said a second man, who was wanted on an outstanding warrant in Marion County, was also arrested at the scene.

Anello was transported to the Clay County Justice Center (CCJC).

He was preliminarily charged with Burglary (a Class B felony), Aggravated Battery (a Class D felony) and Residential Entry (a Class D felony).

Anello remains in custody at CCJC on a $50,000 bond, no 10 percent allowed.

According to officials, at approximately 4:30 a.m., Aug. 4, dispatchers received a 911 call from a resident in West Central Village who stated three white males had broken into his back door and held a "chrome gun" to his head before beating him with a ball bat.

The victim identified two of the suspects and said the third was wearing a mask.

Officials stated the suspects fled the scene before police arrived.

After a search of the area, Derek Snapp, 25, Brazil, was found and taken into custody.

Only days later, CCSD officials served an arrest warrant for Ethan Young, 19, Brazil, whom officials believe was allegedly one of the three men involved in the incident. Young was taken into custody and questioned about the break-in.

At the time of the incident, officials stated Anello allegedly left the area in a stolen vehicle and may have been in the Terre Haute area.

Siddons said a white Monte Carlo, which had been reported stolen at the same time of the break-in, was recovered Thursday near Manhattan in Putnam County with the help of the Putnam County Sheriff's Department.

The vehicle was eventually returned to its owner.

Siddons said the case is still under investigation and more charges could be filed.

Hopefully the Clay County criminal justice system will do the decent tax paying citizens of Clay County and Brazil a favor, by getting this punk off of the streets for a long time. This is a violent criminal who isn't going to change unless he is punished severely. And he obviously doesn't take his previous bouts with the law seriously, as he thinks being booked into jail is funny.

AGREE I think the police did a great JOB in a short time now if the courts can do an equal job which is not often always saying over crowded and no room its time to put up tent's and barb wire

Maybe soon they will update us about the individual found in the creek off White Rock Road.

he won't be smiling for long....

very well said JRS5963

-- Posted by SKCC on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 1:26 AM

please be respectful to others??? wow maybe some people should read that before posting anything on here about anyone. hes a violent criminal that needs to be put away for a long time???? to bad you have no idea wat your talking about period and you definatly shouldnt say that type of crap about someone elses life. you obviously dont realize your talking about his LIFE. stop judging him for his mistakes and worry about your own. lifes to short to frown and if that upsets you then dont freakin look at it. how would you like it if i posted something like that about someone you lovee with your whole heart and care about dearly.... you wouldnt. hes not a physco path and hes not a violent criminal hes actually a good guy that made some bad choices for reasons that you have not even the slightest clue about.

-- Posted by allison stevenson:) on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 7:23 AM

Is he smiling for any particular reason? Maybe because he gets three hots and a cot??? Hmmmmmmmmmm

@allison stevenson

Spoken like a criminals friend! Great job CCSD!

-- Posted by bikerlady on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 8:18 AM

I'm so sick of getting on here and seeing comments supporting criminals. Oh he/she had a bad life, oh they didn't mean to do it, blah blah blah. There's a simple solution to their problems. IF YOU DON'T BREAK THE FREAKIN LAW YOU DON'T GO TO JAIL!!!!!! Stay away from the people that repeatedly get into trouble. Take your time in jail to better yourself. Get out and live a cean life. Even if that means staying away from family members who choose to live on the wrong side of the law. I know easier said than done right? Well guess what. It's possible. I think when your name is in the paper continuously for breaking the law then people don't have to judge. The facts are right there. If he's a good guy then he'll get his crap together and keep his butt out of slammer. Millions of people do it everyday. It's called living a normal life.

-- Posted by ugotitdude on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 8:19 AM

Oh Allison, I'm very disappointed in the person you have become.

-- Posted by clayoriginal on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 8:40 AM

first off you wondering why hes smiling makes me laugh haha. second off spoken like a criminals friend your right on it im supporting him all the way through. third... i never said he had a bad life or that he didnt mean to do what he is allegadly charged with maybe you should go back and re read that one because what i said was he made bad choices for reasons none of you will ever understand or even no for that matter. if you seriously have nothing better to do with your life then talk crap about ricky on the brazil times website maybe you should check what you call living a normal life... hhhmmmmm. if your sick of seeing people commenting and supporting criminals best believe you might want to move on to someone else to dog on because like i said im gna keep on supporting him and if thats a problem maybe you shouldnt check this one anymore

-- Posted by allison stevenson:) on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 8:41 AM

and thats great to no really but i am who i am and im not here to make everybody happy but i will stand up for someone that means the world to me wether its right or wrong and if your dissapointed in me because of that then i didnt need you anyways. end of story this isnt about me. thanks anyways

-- Posted by allison stevenson:) on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 8:47 AM

Allison, you should have stayed in school.

-- Posted by Matt Dillion on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 10:03 AM

the new's said he held a man at gun point while his partners beat him with baseball bats this is a Violante crime and I'm sorry that he had a hard life or was raised around violent people I'm sorry your friend did this but you must understand that we as a society can not allow him to be free to kill someone next time.Just think what would have happened if the man would have tried to get away more than likely he would have been dead then Your friend would be in jail for murder 1

-- Posted by u-know on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 10:24 AM

Heck yeah he's happy! He has a bed to sleep in, 3 square meals/day and doesn't have to sleep in his car anymore.

Good job to all involved!!

-- Posted by Emmes on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 10:40 AM

allison stevenson

Do you miss him or the drugs he probably gives you.

Nothing wrong with like this person,but he broke the law in a serious violent way,this could not have been the first time he has been in trouble.

Since you seem to care and know this person so well,maybe the investigator`s need to call you in for an interview and see just how much knowledge you possess about this crime.Dont forget witholding evidence about a crime is illegal and from your post I kinda think you knew they done this and didnt say anything. JMO

-- Posted by T-REX on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 10:41 AM

Like I said find some new friends. Go to school, get a job, stop hanging out with people who get you in trouble. Try it just once and you won't have to be going on the Brazil Times writing about how sad you are for your friends who get in trouble repeatedly. You also won't have your own name in the paper for being in trouble. It is sad to see people you care about go down the wrong path.

-- Posted by ugotitdude on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 11:02 AM

spoken like a true criminal applaud the bad guy's for doing wrong .I don't care what the guy did it wasn't their place or duty to harm him for it

-- Posted by u-know on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 11:21 AM

"hes not a physco path and hes not a violent criminal hes actually a good guy that made some bad choices for reasons that you have not even the slightest clue about."

Sorry Allison, but people are judged by their actions. Maybe at one time this young man use to be good, but the title "Good Guy" was lost when he committed his crime. Maybe in time he can return to the title of a "good guy", but that can't happen until he pays his debt to society and changes as a man. Allison, I hope and pray that a "Good Guy" doesn't make a "Bad Choice" and breaks into your home or hurts one of your loved ones. But if it does happen to you, please don't judge him, because we all make "bad choices."(Sarcasm)

-- Posted by Alex1213 on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 11:28 AM

Wow.....first of all, Allison....honey you need to open your eyes. These people caused bodily injury, and committed robbery......both of which are against the law. If you think this was a decision that someone forced them to make, you are sadly mistaken. Everyone is in charge of what decisions they make, good or bad. If you know something that would prove these people to be innocent then you need to provide that information to the police ASAP. If you are just defending these people because you know them or are friends with them, then you need to realize that bad friends corrupt good morals, and if you have good morals right now, then you definitely need to separate yourself from these people because if you don't then it's only a matter of time and you could be in a similar situation. Good Luck to you........be responsible in this situation.

-- Posted by eyn62 on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 12:03 PM

When the first story about this was in the paper last week his sister was defending him like crazy. She even went so far as say that the police had spoken to his family and knew he wasn't guilty. What happened to that? Clearly she was just making that up . Now his friend is saying that he did it for reasons we will ever know. Let's face the facts here. He is a criminal and he will continue to break the law until he is given a punishment strong enough to make him rethink his life choices. Hopefully the court system will do just that for him and his accomplices.

-- Posted by RThomas on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 12:29 PM

I want to give thanks to all who is involved in this incident , the trouble makers where caught and hopefully the ones involved will be off the streets for a long time, and not just get a slap on the wrists . A lot of the trouble makers lately have been getting just that a slap on the wrists, get them off of our streets and make Brazil a safer place for all who live here... Including the Young man who they did this too..and his family....

-- Posted by M.Marsh on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 1:26 PM

This made my day, knowing ,this loser , is AGAIN off the street.He needs to be put away for a long time,and yes, his sister and mother run their mouth all the time , BUT guess what, they are just as bad, oh ya, city of Brazil knows the truth, about these people.I just want to say , thank you CCPD....

-- Posted by wisperinghope@yahoo.com on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 1:39 PM

What possibly could be a good reason for his actions? If it was revenge, there are laws and appropriate measures to be taken. When I read that there are good reasons for violence, it makes me think there was no way to get the law involved without telling on yourself. Kind of like the man who called the law because someone sold him baking soda instead of crack and he wanted his money back.

-- Posted by sickhorse on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 4:30 PM

Think AS can tell you how it happened, and why..Tell us A.S

-- Posted by wisperinghope@yahoo.com on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 6:12 PM

Allison, I know someone who drives a white dodge avenger. Maybe they should be concerned with being charged with aiding a criminal.

-- Posted by IIVIIy Name Is on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 9:02 PM

I have known these people for years they are all WHITE TRASH. Even with the whole town sitting here telling them they are will not phase them trust me. Everybody is wasting their time trying to tell themn they are. All they do is lie to try to make theirselves sound like good people which they are NOT. I wish they'd just do this town a favor and move and I guarentee their would be alot less drama!

-- Posted by SKCC on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 10:20 PM

Chelcie you sound like an idiot. We are all entitled to our opinions but there is no need to use that kind of language on a public forum. If you support him then good for you but forgive the rest of the community if we don't condone his actions and are happy to see another criminal off our streets. Oh and by the way, yes I do know him and I can't say I'm surprised by all of this.

-- Posted by RThomas on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 10:46 PM

Everyone in this town has a right to be concerned about this story. It IS our business, because we live in this town, and have a right to know people like this are around.

Saying people like this are not bad people only aligns yourself with this suspect and makes you look just as bad as him.

If he is guilty of the charges, then he IS a bad person, and deserves to pay the maximum penalty. Trying to sluff it off by saying it was a simple mistake only lets the rest of us know that even those close to him believe in his guilt.

I applaud the paper for publishing things like this. At least now I can be aware of this person, and know what he may be capable of.

Good job to law enforcement for getting people like this off the streets.

-- Posted by Oldtown on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 11:36 PM

By the way. It doesn't matter which branch of law enforcement is responsible for the arrest. They ALL work together, and deserve our support.

-- Posted by Oldtown on Fri, Aug 12, 2011, at 11:39 PM

Chelcie,watch your mouth,Does the truth hurt, on what we all are saying?The TRUTH IS hes a VERY bad person,along with the others, and this hasnt been the first time.I have know him( Ricky)&sister, sinse they were like,3,GOD they were trouble then..REALLY they were.SO SAD.,but true.So is the other ,loser your boyfriend, just saying, best friends stick together huh JUST SAYING ..HMMMMMMM.Well you want to talk , well listen, and read . BUT watch your mouth , POTTY MOUTH. OH and about the ccpd who gives a rats AXX,who caught them ,like OLDTOWN said, they all work together, KIND LIKE BESTFRIENDS..HUH A.S

-- Posted by wisperinghope@yahoo.com on Sat, Aug 13, 2011, at 9:12 AM

Where big sister and mom a?.They were running their mouths,like crazy a few days ago.Oh and A.S. HMMMMMMMM.I KNOW I KNOW,JUST SAYING.

-- Posted by wisperinghope@yahoo.com on Sat, Aug 13, 2011, at 9:21 AM

Ricky is a good kid. He made a really stupid choice but, it doesn't change who he is.

Derek is a good kid too. I love him & I truly hope he's sorry like he says he is. The persons house he broke into is, in my opinion, a piece of crap. That may not excuse the actions but I wanted to at least voice my opinion. I wish the boys would have made a better decision but, they didn't. I love you, Derek

-- Posted by snappinator on Sat, Aug 13, 2011, at 8:57 PM

boy hes got a purdy mouth, is what his new room mates are probably thinking.

-- Posted by zandelar123 on Sat, Aug 13, 2011, at 10:51 PM

Allison, I don't know what reason could possibly justify what he did. I mean I've been at some low, and I mean low points in my life. I've been dirt poor, homeless, without job or vehicle and nobody to turn to, but I have also only spent a total of 1 night in jail in my entire life because i walked home from the bar drunk instead of driving. That one night was more than enough to make me not ever want to go back there again. But obviously this guy lacks the proper combination of synapses in his brain to realize that jail is bad. Or maybe he likes it there, because from his mugshot he seems pretty happy to go back.

-- Posted by zandelar123 on Sat, Aug 13, 2011, at 11:03 PM

i'm riding both sides of the fence. Here's the deal: anyone who hasn't lived it can't say anything. it's not as cut and dried as everyone makes this sound. I don't know any of the involved, but I do know its tough growing up in Brazil, guidance or not. You can't blame a parent, you can't blame a friend. One knows what one is doing is against the law, and if you get caught then you're going to jail. Grow up, y'all, and let the system do its work.

-- Posted by gotout on Sun, Aug 14, 2011, at 4:03 AM

Sickhorse, you are right.He is in alot of trouble,from way before , charge after charge,. He doesnt want to better himself. Hes had plenty of chances.God if only our community knew about him and his2 other family members.All we can say is the courts need to do the right thing, and send him away for 20 are so.Maybe,just MAYBE he will get the point across.BUT we who really knows him, NAAAAAA. GREAT JOB GUYS,,,

-- Posted by wisperinghope@yahoo.com on Sun, Aug 14, 2011, at 11:13 AM

What do you mean by saying "We don't have to live with it?" That is a ridiculous statement! People like this roam the streets and we all have to live with it. Thank god he was caught!

I find it extremely disturbing that you think it is ok for someone to "make 3 bad choices" and then just serve their time. As far as I am concerned, he should have learned after his first bad choice. The fact that this guy continues to make the "bad choices" means that he should never be allowed on the streets.

3 strikes and you are out. Lock this guy up for a very long time, and save the rest of us some worry.

-- Posted by Oldtown on Sun, Aug 14, 2011, at 10:04 PM

Thats his sister, Oldtown, And you are right , yes we have to live with it,they dont undrestand,because THEY are on the other side,of the law (BAD SIDE).Always had been.Just a matter of time, CCPD will get them, (THEY)If you know what I mean, In this case HERE, theres 3 of them here.As time goes on we will here more,just keep your eyes open.And CCPD.awesome job...We want to THANK YOU.Have a good day.

-- Posted by wisperinghope@yahoo.com on Mon, Aug 15, 2011, at 9:41 AM

Wow, KRYSTAL, this isn't the first person (who was arrested) you've defended. Might want to find a new circle of friends.

-- Posted by wisperinghope@yahoo.com on Mon, Aug 15, 2011, at 4:48 PM

For most people, a bad choice (as it is being called) is that I bought gas last night and today it is cheaper. This is more than just a bad choice. These types of choices are found at the end of a long string of bad choices. It's not like he made one wrong turn. His blinker is stuck and he keeps going the wrong direction. I am all for helping people who admit their wrongs and seek help, but not those who refuse to learn from one bad decision and keep downing down the spiral.

-- Posted by sickhorse on Mon, Aug 15, 2011, at 9:45 PM


I'm all for supporting family - mine is not without its share of 'bad seeds', but I don't bail them out or make excuses for WHY they do what they do. I love them, but I'm smart enough to know that their lessons are ones THEY HAVE TO LEARN - so I let them. If they don't learn them, they'll repeat them until they do - or end up in jail for the rest of their lives.

THEIR CHOICE, not mine.

-- Posted by Emmes on Tue, Aug 16, 2011, at 11:15 AM

Emmes, sickhorse (and how did you pick that name I want to ask? lol): It's hard to have a battle of wits with unarmed people! Albeit entertaining, it's also very sad that the Kings and Queens of Denial remain in their rightful positions.

You want to play like a thug, then pay your penalities and maybe you can learn something like how to act as a grown, responsible adult instead of blaming all your downfalls on something or somebody. Geez.......

-- Posted by Proud of My Country on Tue, Aug 16, 2011, at 11:46 AM

I don't consider this a battle of wits .. more of a "you can lead a horse - sick or otherwise ; ) to water" type of thing.

I've tried to help those who enjoy being perpetual victims, only to realize they not only don't WANT help, but prefer sympathy.

-- Posted by Emmes on Tue, Aug 16, 2011, at 12:56 PM

Revelation 6:8

And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.

Pale could also be translated "sick".

This is relevant and on topic.

-- Posted by sickhorse on Tue, Aug 16, 2011, at 8:31 PM

This whole case, incident, whatever anyone wants to call it is just sad, disgusting and disturbing! I completely understand the need to want to defend your family members, I would want to defend mine, however, whether we know the reasons or not, facts are, there was a gun involved and a man beaten with a baseball bat. How on earth, unless there was a child or someone in grave danger and the authorities were involved, can anyone justify for any reason what happened?!? There was a comment made that no one else was in danger....I spoke to someone in the area at the time it happened and I definitely got a different story. The whole situation is sad, and my heart goes out to the man that was injured and the family members of all involved. As far as those that were arrested, if found guilty, I hope while you're serving time you can find a way to straighten out your lives. For their families, again, my heart goes out to you all, but, having said that, I'm glad that there are potential (I say potential because this IS America, innocent until proven guilty) violent offenders off the street for now. I do have to add one more thing. I noticed a few comments towards spelling, grammer, etc. Why is that even important on here or on this case? Personally, I could care less if someone puts "i before e".

-- Posted by asil on Wed, Aug 17, 2011, at 5:36 AM

Yes, Emmes, I was alluding to that exact thing only phrasing it a tad bit differently. Nobody can help anybody unless they want to help themselves. And then, some people enjoy the drama and chaos in their lives. Like you said, their choice.

Thank you sickhorse, makes perfect sense.

-- Posted by Proud of My Country on Wed, Aug 17, 2011, at 11:25 AM

Off topic briefly: I can only speak for myself regarding spelling and punctuation:

For me, the more serious someone takes their writing, the more seriously they will be taken. Poor grammar and spelling (for me) detract from the message. An occasional misspelled word is accepted.

SICK - Tombstone is one of my favorite movies!

That said .. I feel for the family of the victim.
