Policing Efforts Result In Arrest Of
Suspect For Criminal Damage To Property.
Christian County Sheriff Bruce
Kettelkamp announces the arrest of Jacob Fahl, (age 19) of
Morrisonville, for criminal damage to property, a class four felony,
causing damage over $300 but less $10,000.
At approximately 1:45 A.M. on January 13th, 2014 a
Morrisonville resident heard a loud noise coming from the front yard
of his residence. The resident looked out his window and noticed a
dark colored pickup truck at the end of his driveway. The resident
immediately took action by going outside to determine what had
caused the noise. The resident observed that his mail box and trash
container had been damage and the dark colored pickup truck drove
away from this house. The resident got into his vehicle and followed
the pickup truck until he could obtain the license plate, at which
time he immediately called the Christian County Sheriff’s Office.
Christian County Sheriff’s
Office took numerous reports of other criminal property damages
occurring in Morrisonville. One stop sign and 7 mailboxes were
knocked down. The truck left ruts in the yard of one residence,
splattering mud all over the house. Another yard had a figure 8 in
it caused by ruts from the pick up truck.
Sheriff Kettelkamp praises the immediate action taken by the citizen to
obtain the license plate of the vehicle that was responsible for the
criminal damage. This is an excellent example of community policing
where citizens and law enforcement work together.
Sheriff Kettelkamp encourages all citizens to take action immediately to
assist Law Enforcement when they hear or observe anything unusual
occurring in their community.
Jacob Fahl was arrested on January 16th as a result of an arrest warrant
that was issued through the Christian County States Attorneys’
Office. Fahl was released from Christian County Jail after posting
10% of a $20,000 bond.
