Putnamville detective's home burglarized, guns stolen

Thursday, December 22, 2011

PUTNAMVILLE -- The Criminal Investigation Division at the Putnamville Post is seeking help from the public in the investigation of residential burglary at Danville.

The victim is an Indiana State Police detective assigned to the Putnamville Post.

Sometime between 1:30 p.m. and 2:40 p.m. Tuesday, unknown person or persons forced open the front door of the residence at 2417 S. County Road 125 West, Danville, and removed multiple weapons and televisions.

The firearms included a Harrington and Richardson single-shot 12 gauge shotgun, a Mossberg 12 gauge shotgun with a pistol grip, a Remington semi-auto .22 caliber long rifle, a Winchester Pump .22 caliber long rifle, a French MAS 49/56 308 semi-auto rifle, and a Russian Nagant M44 bolt-action rifle.

Also taken was an Indiana State Police uniform duty belt with two 9-millimeter magazines, along with handcuffs and assorted law enforcement items. None of the firearms is ISP-issued.

A credit card stolen from the residence was used at the Phillips 66 Service Station at 6455 W. Washington St., Indianapolis, to purchase diesel fuel, police said.

The suspect vehicle is believed to be a dark-colored, four-door Ford diesel-powered pickup.

The suspects are believed to be a white male (description unavailable at this time) and a white female, possibly in her middle to late 20s with a brown ponytail.

Anyone with information in this investigation is urged to contact ISP Det. Jim Dungan of the Putnamville Post at 653-4114 or 1-800-225-8576.

Yes indeed that is a shame.. What is more shameful, the Banner Graphic printing a Hendricks County Story. Are they not aware of how many homes are burglarized in Putnam County and guns stolen??

Taking an officer's uniform is a serious threat to the public. Also the other equipment that could be used against you if they fit in the uniform.Does not matter where he lives he is out of putnamville post and that uniform and equipment could be used against the public-may be you-think about it.
