Three men arrested on burglary charges

Three men were arrested after money and a gun were stolen from a Greenwood home.

A man who was house-sitting his daughter’s home on Meriman Drive discovered one safe was stolen and another safe was emptied out on Sunday morning, according to a report from the Greenwood Police Department.

The man gave police the name of an acquaintance he thought could be involved. Police arrested William Higdon, 18, Franklin, Marcus Rush, 19, Beech Grove, and Corbin Rafferty, 18, New Whiteland, on burglary charges.

Higdon told police he broke a window of the Meriman Drive home, then a teenage boy crawled inside and unlocked the door to the house, letting the other men in, according to the report. Higdon and Rush told police they helped take one of the safes out of the home, and took money and a pistol from the house, according to the report. Police found a suitcase with coins in Rafferty’s truck, the report said.

All three were arrested and taken to the Johnson County jail. The teenage boy was not arrested. Police still are investigating, Greenwood Police Department spokeswoman Kortney Burrello said.

Higdon, 4194 Magnolia Drive, and Rafferty, 41 Poplar Court, were released on $6,600 bond. Rush, 4172 Malden Lane, was held on $6,600 bond.
