Evansville Police have made 14 arrests during an on-going investigation into multiple east side burglaries.

EPD says the arrests were made possible by residents who were looking out for their neighbors and alerting police to suspicious activity.

Investigators used crime scene evidence and interviews with victims, witnesses, and suspects to solve many of the cases.

EPD says they have charged four of the individuals in connection with the burglaries.

The other arrests were on individuals who were suspected of being involved in the burglaries, but did not have enough evidence to support a burglary charge.

EPD says their charges ranged from meth possession, felony warrants, domestic violence warrants, and thefts from vehicles, to possession of a machine gun.

Police say they have not received reports of burglaries connected with this investigation in the weeks since the arrests were made.

Those facing burglary charges are: 

  • Drew Groomer 
  • Johnny D. Williams 
  • Keegan Mullen 
  • Adam Gerhardt

Investigators from the Vanderburgh County and Warrick County Sheriff's Offices have also been involved in the investigation to see if any of the suspects were involved in burglaries in their jurisdictions.
