Pair accused of stealing pickup truck


BARTHOLOMEW COUNTY, Ind.–Two men were arrested for auto theft near the Bartholomew County Fairgrounds on Tuesday night. Authorities at the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Office say they fielded a call about a suspicious SUV in the area of Jonesville and Deaver Roads. Apparently, the men in the vehicle stopped at a property, removed a green Ford pickup and drove off.

Later, an Indiana State Police trooper located the two vehicles near Spear Street and initiated a traffic stop. Jeremiah Anderson, 35, of Columbus, and Trevor Dilk, 47, of Columbus, both claimed they had permission to take the vehicle, but a call to the truck’s owner stated otherwise.

Anderson and Dilk were taken into custody, charged with auto theft, and transported to Bartholomew County Jail.
