Sheriff's Canine Nabs Burglars

Johnson County Sheriff's Deputy Travis Derrett and his Canine partner Centa received a call from the Sheriff's dispatchers of a Burglary In-Progress at the Country Style Boutique at 111 North State Road 135 in Trafalgar, Indiana. Since the Trafalgar Police Department had no one on duty, Sheriff's Deputies and a Bargersville Police Officer were dispatched. Officer's determined that an attempted Burglary had indeed occurred. Derrett and Centa began checking the area and tracked a suspect away from the business where he was laying on his stomach in a farm field attempting to hide. They took the suspect (who has a lengthy arrest record) into custody. The man was already under investigation for several other crimes in the area, and he admitted to investigator's that he and his co-conspirator were trying to break into the business to get some money. A second suspect, a juvenile, was also quickly located nearby and taken into custody. Sheriff's Evidence Technician Bill Baldwin was summonsed and he recovered evidentiary prints from the business. Trafalgar Town Marshal W. Johnson arrived and took custody of the prisoners. Thanks to the good work and inter-agency cooperation of Deputy Derrett, Centa, the Bargersville Police, and all the other units on the scene, two more Burglars have been removed from the streets of Johnson County.
