Would-be burglar guilty of 3 charges

Friday, April 16, 2010

GREENCASTLE -- A Bainbridge man has been convicted of attempted burglary, theft and being a habitual offender by a 12-member jury.

Curtis Cash attempted to break into a home west of Heritage Lake, but was later identified by two neighbors who thought he looked suspicious. The neighbors called 911 and even gave a license plate number.

Putnam County Sheriff's Department Detective Pat McFadden later arrested Cash, who will be sentenced May 13 and is facing a maximum sentence of 50 years.

"This case was solved because neighbors got involved when they saw suspicious activity," said prosecutor Tim Bookwalter. "We hope the public will be vigilant in watching for suspicious activity in their neighborhoods. As these neighbors did, please call 911 immediately."
