Man arrested after attempted burglary

A Brown County man was arrested after police say he attempted to break into a garage and was startled by a person inside the home.

Around noon Feb. 11, Ronny Wagers, 38, was attempting to break into a garage in the 7800 block of Sweetwater Trail, a news release from the Brown County Sheriff’s Department said.

Nothing was taken.

Police found Wagers in a driveway in the 9600 block of Green Road later that day — which was not the address on his driver’s license or the address he gave during jail booking.

The white Honda van he was driving was reported stolen out of Marion County. Wagers also had methamphetamine and paraphernalia, police said.

He was taken to the Brown County jail.
