Indiana Conservation Officers assisted the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department by recovering a stolen safe located in 56 feet of water in the Brookville Reservoir.
In early June the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department investigated a burglary that took place at the Lakeshore Resort located near Brookville Reservoir. During the burglary video surveillance caught the suspect in the act and gave the Sheriff’s Department a good lead. Upon an interview the suspect confessed to the burglary and where he disposed of the stolen safe.
Indiana Conservation Officers were called and deployed a remote operated vehicle, known as a “ROV” commonly seen in the movie “Titanic.” The safe was located in 56-foot of water off of the Causeway Bridge on Brookville Reservoir where Indiana Conservation Divers descended and recovered the safe for evidence.
