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.
