Indiana State Police have preliminarily charged a Jasper woman with crimes including felony residential entry, felony theft and felony burglary.
Sunday, Aug. 2, the Indiana State Police Jasper Post received a report of a possible burglary. The caller said their family, residing in Jasper, had just returned home from being out of town and noticed several things were missing.
Trooper Andrew Jones was assigned to an investigation that determined a red convertible had been in the driveway of the victim’s home on July 31. During the course of the investigation, it was discovered that Cassandra Henke-Meyer, Jasper, drove a car that matched that description.
Jones learned that the victim had Henke-Meyer, owner of Happy Paws Pals Village, watch their pet, and that Henke-Meyer had been given the code to enter the home in order to care for the pet.
A search warrant was issued for Henke-Meyer’s home. That search turned up items from the victim’s home. Henke-Meyer was also found to be in possession of controlled substances which were not prescribed to her.
Henke-Meyer was then booked into the Dubois County Security Center on charges of felony burglary, felony theft, felony residential entry, two counts of felony possession of a legend drug, and felony trafficking.
The Indiana State Police is asking the public to contact Jones at 482-1441 if you have been the victim of a similar crime.
