Monday, September 5, 2011

HARMONY -- Officials with the Clay County Sheriff's Department have arrested two men and one juvenile in connection to thefts of items inside unlocked vehicles.

According to a press release, deputies were dispatched to the Harmony area in reference to complaints regarding suspicious subjects entering vehicles late Friday evening.

Following a search of the area, a traffic stop was initiated on a suspicious vehicle.

Deputies, according to the release, observed items inside the vehicle, which matched the description of items the suspicious subjects were carrying or wearing.

After interviews with the suspects, deputies located several alleged stolen items inside backpacks of two of the three suspicious subjects.

In addition, officials discovered illegal narcotic contraband inside the vehicle. The investigation continued and the suspects were arrested on preliminary charges of theft, unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle and trespass.

Two of the arrested subjects were later identified as Victor Justin Boehmer, 20, and Andrew Johnson, 18, both of Terre Haute.

Both Boehmer and Johnson were transferred to the Clay County Justice Center on $7,000 bonds, no 10 percent allowed.

Boehmer was also charged with false informing for providing false information regarding his identity, which was later discovered when deputies located his wallet.

According to the release, he was found to be with active warrants out of Vigo County for theft-related charges.

A juvenile was also arrested. The juvenile was detained and transported to the Muncie Reception and Diagnostics Center for Youth.

Some of the items allegedly stolen from the unlocked vehicles included money, navigation devices, electronic devices and a firearm.
