crime investigate redHENDERSON, Ky. (9/11/18) — A man that apparently called 911 about property stolen at a Henderson business was charged with stealing it.

He allegedly tried pinning it on others that were incarcerated at the time of the reported crime.

Henderson County Sheriff’s Office reported investigating the call about a break-in early this morning at Smithhart Trailer Sales and Service at 2120 S. Green St.

David Eugene Brown, 60 of Huntingburgh, Indiana, told deputies that he saw three people breaking into the business and trying to steal a trailer, according to HCSO. He recognized the individuals and identified three men.

Deputies determined two of the three people Brown named off were in Henderson County Jail at the time of the said burglary.

HCSO reported video surveillance revealed that Brown was seen on the business parking lot before the power was disabled. A deputy located the stolen property in Brown’s vehicle and in his pocket.

Detective John Nevels determined Brown was the suspect. He was charged with third-degree burglary, theft by unlawful taking (more than $500) and falsely reporting an incident.
