Man charged in Dollar General cellphone theftJune 13, 2019
From Local Sources
HUNTINGBURG — A Huntingburg man was in court Wednesday to answer to a warrant charging him with Level 6 felony theft.
Jacob T.J. Gonzales, 27, 2312 Sunset Drive, is accused of stealing a cellphone April 13 from the Dollar General store at 1710 N. Main St., Huntingburg. The Huntingburg Police Department investigated the case, which resulted in an arrest warrant being issued out of Dubois Superior Court on Monday.
Authorities are seeking an enhanced penalty for the alleged cellphone theft because Gonzales has a previous, 2018 conviction for theft, which raises the new charge to a Level 6 felony.
Gonzales was booked into the Dubois County Security Center at 11:55 p.m. Tuesday on the active warrant.
During an initial appearance Wednesday, Gonzales’ request for pauper counsel was granted and he was placed on pretrial work release until he can post a $750 bond.
