A Spencer County woman was placed under arrest for her involvement in a rash of vehicle break-ins that took place in parts of Dubois County in the last couple of weeks. Jasper police took 39-year old Angela Dunn of Dale in custody during the 4 o’clock hour Tuesday afternoon in Dale. Back on Thursday August 25th Jasper Police looked into the report of a vehicle that had been broken into and items stolen from the vehicle in the parking lot of the Medical Arts building located along the 700 block of West 13th Street in Jasper. Authorities sent out a media release on two possible suspects they believed were involved in the vehicle break in. Jasper Police later learned that the Ferdinand Police Department was investigating a similar type of vehicle break in that occurred in the St. Ferdinand Church Parking lot a day after the Jasper break-ins. The acting of several tips on the identities of the two suspects led Jasper Police to Stone’s Motel in Dale yesterday. A Jasper Police Officer along with a Spencer County Deputy went to that location and made contact with a female subject identified as Dunn. Jasper Police took Dunn to the Ferdinand Police Department for questioning. Officers from both departments interviewed Dunn about the two vehicle break-ins at which time she confessed to being involved in the break-ins at both the St. Ferdinand Church Parking lot and Medical Arts parking lot in Jasper.
Both Ferdinand Police and Jasper Police charged Dunn with a level 6 Felony count of theft and a misdemeanor count of assisting a criminal. Dunn was taken to and booked into the Dubois County Security Center in Jasper. An investigation into the vehicle break-ins in both Jasper and Ferdinand are continuing and authorities expect more arrests.
