WARSAW — A teenager, who was under the age of 18 when the crime was committed, was waived to adult court on Oct. 30.
Now 18 years old, Travis Jordan Hubler, 6889 S. SR 15, Claypool, is facing charges of burglary, a level 5 felony; theft, level 6 felony; and criminal mischief, class B misdemeanor, in adult court instead of juvenile court. He was arrested Friday, Nov. 13, and booked in the Kosciusko County Jail. Hubler was also arrested at that time for illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor.
A petition to waive Hubler to adult court was filed on June 11. The motion to waive juvenile jurisdiction states: he was over the age of 14 at the time of the alleged acts, turning 18 in July, and the acts are part of a repetitive pattern of behavior. Documents note Hubler is beyond rehabilitation under the juvenile justice system and it is in the best interest of the respondent child and the community he stand trial as an adult.
Bond on the burglary charge was set at $10,000 surety and $250 cash. The illegal consumption charge carried a $500 cash bond.
Hubler allegedly on or about May 16, when he was 17, broke into Creighton Brothers, damaging or defacing property. He reportedly also stole undisclosed items valued at least $750 but less than $50,000, from the business.
