2 years after burglary, suspect arrested

Follow Daily Journal:

A Lebanon man has been arrested after a burglary was committed two years ago in Greenwood.

Bobby Ries, 37, had been in jail in Ohio and was brought back to Indiana on a warrant. Ries has been charged with burglary, a Class B felony, by the Johnson County Prosecutor’s office.

In February 2012, police were called to a home on Rocky Meadow Road, where a flat-screen television was stolen.

The back window of the home was broken during the burglary, and blood drops were found on a dresser drawer. Police later matched the DNA of the blood left behind to Ries, according to charging documents.

At his mother’s apartment, police also found two pairs of Ries’ jeans with blood stains and a piece of paper with the address of the home that was burglarized, according to a Greenwood Police report.

His mother told police she remembered seeing a flat-screen television in the back seat of Ries’ car. The television had been sold to a southside pawnshop. A video from the store showed Ries selling the television, and a fingerprint on paperwork from the store matched Ries, charging documents said.

Ries, 1302 Citation Circle West, is being held in the Johnson County jail on $20,000 bond.
