(Moores Hill, Ind.) – One of the perpetrators of burglaries in Moores Hill voluntarily came forward to confess the crime, including some police did not know about.

Two homeowners on Stamper Road and Rummel Road reported burglaries last July 22. About three weeks later, police received a tip that Matthew L. Hein and Kyle I. Cash were in possession of stolen power tools and two crossbows.

Hein called police in October to confess that he, Cash, and Jake D. Martin entered garages and took the items in the early morning hours. Police learned that he sold the items to an individual in Aurora for $50.

One of the crossbows was recovered and identified by the owner as having been stolen in July.

The three alleged thieves each face multiple charges. Hein, 25, of Moores Hill, is charged with two counts of Burglary (level 5 felony), Conspiracy to Commit Burglary (level 5 felony), and Theft with a Prior Conviction (level 6 felony).

Cash, 21, of Lawrenceburg, and Martin, 24, of Elsmere, are each charged with double counts of Burglary (level 5 felony), Conspiracy to Commit Burglary (level 5 felony), and Theft (class A misdemeanor).

They were arrested just recently and remain held in jail at the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center as of Thursday.
