A Huntingburg man who initially reported an alleged break-in early Thursday morning ended up being the one arrested on burglary and narcotics charges. Just after 3:30 Thursday morning officers with the Huntingburg Police Department were called to the report of a possible burglary in progress.

Police say 38-year old Jeremiah Jackson of Huntingburg went next door to a home located along the 200 block of East Third Street to call police after hearing a loud noise that made him think someone was potentially breaking into the residence. Officers made entry but did not locate anyone inside; however, the officers did allegedly see drug paraphernalia in plain view. Officers obtained a search warrant for the residence which they say turned up even more  drug paraphernalia, a handgun and small amount of methamphetamine.

Jackson was taken into custody on preliminary charges that include a Level 5 felony count of possession of a handgun, a Level 6 felony count of methamphetamine possession and a misdemeanor count of possession of paraphernalia.
