Burglary suspects arrested
Updated on: 06.18.13

Brown County Sheriff's Det. Scott Southerland traveled to Indianapolis Monday night, June 17 to serve arrest warrants on two people suspected of committing as many as 20 burglaries in Brown County this spring.

Brandon Antrim and Aaron Green, both 19, of Indianapolis, are now lodged in the Brown County jail on numerous felony burglary and theft charges.

Court records allege that in March and April, the pair and an unidentified third man targeted mostly vacant homes either for sale or under construction.

Homes were hit on Freeman Ridge Road, State Road 45, Hoover Road, Lower Schooner Road, Gatesville Road, Unity Church Road, Bean Blossom Road, Woodland Lake Road and Upper Bean Blossom Road, according to a probable cause affidavit.

The most common item stolen was copper tubing used in plumbing and heating. The thieves also swiped power tools, whiskey and a TV, the affidavit states.

Southerland said the cutting of a propane gas line is believed to be the cause of a Unity Church Road house fire.

Police continue their search for the third suspect.
