Western Indiana man charged with stealing trooper's gun
TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) - Indiana State Police say they've charged a western Indiana man with stealing a handgun from a trooper's vehicle.
They say 19-year-old Logan Blubaugh of Rosedale was charged Tuesday with unlawful entry of a motor vehicle, obstruction of justice and theft. He's being held at the Vigo County Jail in Terre Haute. They say a tip to Parke County sheriff's deputies about a stolen vehicle led to Blubaugh's arrest.
Police say the trooper's 45-caliber pistol was stolen early Monday when a man broke into his department-issued vehicle in a subdivision in northern Vigo County.
The handgun hasn't been recovered. Senior Trooper B.J. Patterson says it's believed to be in an undisclosed body of water.
