A Huntingburg man is behind bars today for his role in a burglary last week.

Jacob R. Gunselman, 24, 813 Shelby Street, Apartment 8, Huntingburg, IN. He is charged with Burglary, Level 4 Felony, Residential Entry, Level 6 Felony and Theft, Class A Misdemeanor.


On January 17, Master Trooper Trey Lytton and Trooper Kaitlyn Greene began an investigation into a burglary that occurred sometime on January 16 at 7397 West County Road 1200 South in Holland. Troopers learned that the burglar had climbed the television antenna tower, removed a window screen, and entered the home. After crime scene technicians had processed the residence, it was determined that numerous jewelry items had been taken.

On January 22, Troopers were able to recover two of the jewelry items from local jewelers and, in turn, developed a suspect, leading them to speak with Jacob R. Gunselman, 24, Huntingburg. Gunselman was arrested later on Thursday, without incident, and lodged in the Dubois County Security Center.
