WARSAW — A man was recently arrested after allegedly burglarizing a home in Warsaw.
Kevin Michael Klaehn, 28, Branchville, is charged with burglary, a level 4 felony; and theft, invasion of privacy, and criminal mischief, all class A misdemeanors.
On April 21, 2020, Warsaw Police officers went to a residence regarding a burglary report. Upon arrival at the scene, officers noticed significant damage to the home’s door and doorframe. A television in the residence was damaged as well. The estimated cost of the damages was greater than $750.
According to court documents, officers spoke with the residence’s occupants about the burglary. One of the occupants said two notebooks containing writings, drawings and letters from Klaehn were stolen. The occupant believed Klaehn would have forcibly entered the home to take the notebooks. It was also determined that one of the residents had an active protective order against Klaehn.
Prior to contacting law enforcement about the burglary, one of the occupants contacted Klaehn. She said Klaehn came to the home within a few minutes after contacting him, indicating he was in the area when the burglary occurred. The resident who had an active protective order against Klaehn was home when he arrived.
On April 24, 2020, a Warsaw Police officer spoke with Klaehn about the burglary. During the interview, the officer felt as though Klaehn was being deceptive about what occurred. Klaehn said he went to the residence while knowing the person who had an active protective order against him lived there. He also said he was at the home on the day of the burglary but denied forcibly entering.
Klaehn was booked in the Kosciusko County Jail on July 6, with a $15,250 surety and cash bond.
