A North Vernon man is behind bars on burglary charges. Just after 2:30 a.m. Wednesday, Jennings County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a reported Burglary of a garage on Townsend Place. While speaking to the property owner, deputies received another dispatch of an alarm coming from another home on Atkinson Circle. Once at that scene, police found 26-year-old Brian W. Hooten inside of a vehicle that was parked in the garage.
Hooten is facing two preliminary counts of Burglary. He is being held on a $2,055 bond.
