A Columbus man was arrested early Tuesday after allegedly breaking into a business on Jonesville Road.
Judy Jackson, Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman, says that deputies responded to Wischmeier Nursery at 3:18 a.m. after a burglary alarm went off at the business. When deputies arrived, Jackson says they found a broken window on the northeast side of the building, along with 36-year-old Timothy Schoettmer, of Hawpatch Drive.
Jackson says that once Schottmer was in custody, deputies, along with K9 “Bolt” searched the building to make sure there were no accomplices. Schoettmer was arrested on preliminary charges of Burglary and Public Intoxication. He is being held without bond.
