Burglary ring busted in Indiana

DEARBORN COUNTY, IN (FOX19) - A burglary ring has been busted in Southeastern Indiana involving two men and multiple burglaries.

Corey Heidorn, 30, and Dustin Lee Williams, 34, are both in custody at the Dearborn County Jail, according to Dearborn County Prosecutor Aaron Negangard.

An investigation began in early February when three burglaries were discovered in Dearborn County and linked to several in Ripley County, Negangard said in a release. Arrest warrants were obtained for the two men on March 8 after the lengthy investigation.

The two men are accused of robbing people of jewelry, coins, electronics, construction tools and a large number of guns.

Investigators said they searched three residences and a vehicle finding the items worth thousands of dollars.

The two men were arrested Wednesday morning in Versailles.

"I want to commend the excellent work by law enforcement around the region," Negangard said in a release. "The officers worked very hard to bring these burglars who were stealing thousands of dollars' worth of property and negatively affecting the safety of our citizens to justice."

He went on to say, "these individuals are no longer a threat to public safety."

Several agencies took part in the operation including, detectives at the Dearborn County Special Crimes Unit, Dearborn County Sheriff's office, Ripley County Sheriff's office, Indiana State Police and Rising Sun Police.
