Two North Vernon residents are under arrest after allegedly stealing a handgun, video game consoles and games from a friend’s house.
Police took a report of a theft of the items from a home in the 500 block of South State Street Friday. Isaac Robbins and Keersten Smith had allegedly spent the night at the home, staying with a roommate, while the owner of the items was away on vacation.
Employees at the Game Stop store in Seymour called the owner after Robbins and Smith allegedly tried to sell one of the game consoles and games. The victim had written his name on the console, police say.
Smith was scheduled to have a tattoo done at a NOrth Vernon shop, which is where police intercepted her and Robbins. Robbins allegedly was carrying the missing handgun in his waistband.
Police and sheriff’s deputies recovered a bag at the Crosley Fish and Wildlife area that contained the other missing game console, more games, a camcorder, drugs and drug paraphernalia.
Robbins is facing preliminary charges of theft and carrying a handgun without a permit. Smith was arrested on preliminary charges of aiding in the commission of a crime, and carrying a handgun without a permit.
