Arrest made in burglary

Rushville teen charged

RUSHVILLE — During December, a rash or residential burglaries were reported in Rushville and an investigated was undertaken by officers from the Rushville Police Department.

Investigators got a break in the case last week in the form of a homeowner confronting an intruder inside his residence.

Major Todd Click of the RPD said that after the intruder entered the residence he was faced with more than he bargained for.

“The homeowner confronted the man at gunpoint. The suspect fled the scene of the burglary, but the homeowner was able to give a detailed description of the suspect,” Click said.

That description coupled with the ongoing investigation led to the arrest of Matthew Allen Chandler, 18, of Rushville, a short time later in the 100 block of East 12th Street.

Chandler was charged with a class “B” felony charge of burglary and was incarcerated at the Rush County Jail. A bond of $60,000 was set.

Chandler may also be linked to other burglaries, though charges in those cases have not been filed.

Rush County Prosecutor Phil Caviness said Monday that although innocent until proven guilty, officers have talked to Chandler regarding additional burglaries.

“Although no charges have been filed at this time regarding the other burglaries, if linked to those crimes additional charges may be filed,” Caviness said.
