JASPER — A report early Wednesday of a suspicious person with a hammer in a West Seventh Street neighborhood resulted in an arrest.
Jasper Police Department officers responding to the 4:45 a.m. report from the 500 block of West Seventh Street encountered Joshua M. Barnes, 44, 103 W. Sixth St., Jasper, who complied with a command to drop the hammer in his left hand.
Police said Barnes, who appeared intoxicated and who indicated he had been trying to confront a man who had upset him, was also carrying some mail, papers and an insurance card alleged to have been taken from a residence and a vehicle in the 400 block of West Seventh Street.
A door with several hammer holes in it was found to have been forced open, according to authorities.
Barnes was taken to Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center where he allegedly tested positive for methamphetamine in his system after a blood draw.
Authorities booked Barnes into the Dubois County Security Center at 10:45 a.m. on preliminary charges that included a Level 4 felony count of burglary and misdemeanor counts of theft, unauthorized entry of a motor vehicle, criminal mischief and public intoxication.
