(Jennings County, Ind.) – In the afternoon hours of January 11, deputies with the Jennings County Sheriff’s office responded to an address in Geneva Township in reference to a burglary that had already occurred.

The victim advised deputies that someone had broken into his home and stole a guitar valued at $4,000.00.

Information that was gathered during the investigation led Deputy Tyler Boswell to a different residence in Geneva Township to speak with a possible suspect. As the investigation continued, 24-year-old Lane Luhn, of North Vernon, admitted that he had entered the victim’s home and stole the guitar, and eventually sold it.

Deputy Boswell was able to locate the guitar in Bartholomew County, where it was recovered and returned to the owner.

Luhn was taken into custody and is currently being held in the Jennings County Jail on the preliminary alleged charges of burglary (level 4 felony) and theft (level 6 felony).
