Police accuse Jasper man of stealing auto partsJuly 17, 2017
By BILL POWELL
JASPER — Police are seeking to revoke the pre-trial work release of a man arrested last week for allegedly burglarizing a Jasper home after he was accused during the weekend of stealing vehicle parts in a separate investigation.
A complainant reported to the Dubois County Sheriff’s Department on Sunday that he had discovered engine parts missing from a vehicle. The complainant had allegedly learned some of the engine parts could be at a residence on Leopold Street in Jasper.
The sheriff’s department said a carburetor taken from the victim was located at the Leopold Street site and other parts were discovered to have already been installed on a different vehicle located on Mill Street in Jasper.
The investigation led the sheriff’s department to question Logan M. Seger, 19, 257 Brucke Strasse, who allegedly admitted to stealing the parts one and a half months ago, according to the sheriff’s department.
Authorities booked Seger into the county security center at 5:55 p.m. Sunday on a preliminary Level 6 felony count of theft.
Seger had been arrested Wednesday by the Jasper Police Department and accused of breaking into a home, accessing a safe inside and stealing $12,200, silver certificates and miscellaneous old coins.
He had been placed on pre-trial work release after that earlier arrest.
