CLOVERDALE — A burglarized home and the ensuing investigation led to four arrests on multiple charges, some of them not even related to the burglary.

A family recently returned from vacation to their West Water Street home, finding their house burglarized and several family heirlooms taken.

Through his ensuing investigation, Cloverdale Deputy Marshal Wade Warren developed probable cause to obtain search warrants for four different locations — on South County Road 775 East, North Main Street, Truman Street and West Boone Street.

CPD served the search warrants Wednesday afternoon, recovering many of the stolen items as well as drugs and paraphernalia.

Those arrested include:

• Andrea N. Tillberry, 29, Cloverdale, for theft and receiving stolen property;

• Anna K. Spencer, 25, Centerpoint, for possession of methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance and possession of paraphernalia;

• Clarence W. Gilmore, 33, Beech Grove, for possession of methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance, possession of paraphernalia and maintaining a common nuisance; and

• Sherri A. Sanders, 48, Cloverdale, for possession of methamphetamine, maintaining a common nuisance, possession of paraphernalia and child endangerment.

The final charge for Sanders springs from the presence of two 14-year-olds at one of the locations who were found to be in possession of marijuana.

All four adults were booked in the Putnam County Jail, while one juvenile was placed in the care of Child Protective Services and the other was released to family members.

Service of the warrants also led to the recovery of a stolen car. The wheels were taken off the vehicle, which was up on blocks.

Marshal Steve Hibler reported that most of the items of sentimental value had been returned to the victims, with an additional item to be returned on Thursday.

He also had praise for his deputy and the community.

“Wade did a fantastic investigative job on this,” Hibler said. “I’m proud of him. And I’m very proud of our community because people came forward. If you see something, say something.”

The case will be turned over to the Putnam County Prosecutor’s Office for formal charges.
