Warrant charges jailed man with additional countsJanuary 22, 2019
From Local Sources
JASPER — A warrant issued Thursday out of Dubois Circuit Court charges a currently jailed man with additional misdemeanors.
Brian W. Dillard, 31, 1411 Main St., Jasper, was originally arrested in October on charges that included felony domestic battery and unlawful possession of a syringe.
Then, at the end of December, Dillard and another man also incarcerated at the security center, Christopher D. Barrett, 28, 255 Brucke Strasse, were served with warrants charging them with crimes that included Level 4 felony counts of burglary and Level 6 felony counts of residential entry.
Those charges followed a Jasper Police Department investigation that began Oct. 24 when a man reported his checkbook stolen. A check was allegedly forged and cashed for $350 after the theft and the victim subsequently reported other thefts from his residence.
Dillard was served Monday with an additional warrant charging him with misdemeanor counts of criminal trespass and unauthorized entry of a motor vehicle.
Those new charges stem from an investigation launched Oct. 11 by Jasper police after a resident reported that his 2005 Ford Taurus had been stolen from his back driveway. The car was subsequently recovered and Barrett was formally charged with Level 6 felony auto theft and misdemeanor unauthorized entry of a motor vehicle in late December as a result of that investigation.
The latest charges against Dillard allege he accompanied Barrett and another man in the stolen car knowing it was stolen and knowing he did not have permission from the owner to be in it.
The Dubois County Prosecutor’s Office has filed notices of intent to seek habitual offender status for both Barrett and Dillard because of prior unrelated felony offense convictions.
