A husband and wife in Terre Haute, Ind., face several counts of burglary as well as drug charges after police found items in their home that had been stolen from self-storage facilities. Police presented a warrant to search the home of Ebb and Heather Howard, 29, on Thursday, finding jewelry, collectibles, power tools, hunting and fishing equipment, and other items.
Police said there was enough stolen property to fill several trucks, according to an article in the Terre Haute Tribune Star. Most was found in the home, while some was stored in a self-storage facility on Wabash Ave.
The Howards appeared in court on Friday for initial hearings on three charges of burglary. In addition to the theft charges, the judge found probably cause for the couple’s arrest on a charge of manufacturing methamphetamine. A non-working meth lab was allegedly found in the couple’s garage, and Ebb Howard was allegedly found in possession of the drug.
Bond for the Howards was set at $75,000. A hearing for the formalization of charges will take place on Wednesday.
