Man on Work Release Arrested for Stealing from Construction Vehicles; Tens of Thousands of Dollars in Stolen Items Found in His Home
Anthony B. Ulm
The Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Office and the Evansville Police Department arrested Anthony Ulm over the weekend. Ulm was developed as a suspect in several vehicle thefts throughout Evansville, Vanderburgh County and several other surrounding southwest Indiana counties. Ulm targeted construction vehicles and vehicles parked at motels and restaurants.
Law enforcement observed Ulm break into a truck near Christian Fellowship Church on Millersburg Road. Officers kept him under surveillance as he drove to Boeke Road near the Lloyd Expressway. There, he started to remove articles from another vehicle. He was taken into custody at that time.
A search of a residence on McCutchan Road as well as Ulm's residence on Taft Avenue yielded tens of thousands of dollars in suspect stolen items. The items included construction tools, bicycles, firearms, golf clubs and hunting equipment.
Ulm is being held at the Vanderburgh County Jail on 3 counts of theft without bond pending an initial court appearance. More charges will likely be filed once victims are notified of recovered property. Detectives are contacting area law enforcement agencies to see if Ulm is connected to any open cases in their jurisdictions.
Ulm refused to give a statement. He was on work release from Warrick County at the time of his arrest.
