JASPER — Police arrested a Daviess County man Sunday on multiple preliminary charges related to joy rides he allegedly took in a Jasper dealership’s vehicles.
The Jasper Police Department was called to the report of a suspicious vehicle in the Sternberg Chrysler Dodge Ram Jeep dealership parking lot at 1781 S. U.S. 231 at 4:39 p.m.
Police say the vehicle in question, a black 2008 Chrysler van, had been seen by employees over the past several weeks in the lot. Employees had also noticed that vehicles had been messed with and moved during the same time frame, according to police.
While law enforcement was on scene, a white International semi pulled into the parking lot. Employees said that semi was not to have been taken from the lot.
Police made contact with the man driving the semi, identified as Robert E. Warne, 52, Washington, who was determined to not have permission to drive the truck.
Warne allegedly admitted to having recently stolen a key from Sternberg’s and to have driven several semis and dump trucks on joy rides over the last several week.
Authorities booked Warne into the Dubois County Security Center at 8:12 p.m. on preliminary charges of Level 5 felony auto theft (two counts), Level 6 felony unauthorized entry of a motor vehicle (two counts) and misdemeanor theft.
