Vanderburgh County authorities have arrested a man in connection with multiple local burglaries, including the theft at Highland Baseball Club. 

Vanderburgh County Sheriff's Deputies say they executed a search warrant on Tuesday at the home of 43-year-old Steven James Vile that's in the 100 block of Ladonna Blvd in Northern Vanderburgh County.

Deputies say the search resulted in the recovery of property stolen during several different burglaries and thefts of area businesses.

The sheriff's office say that during the course of an investigation by their deputies into recent burglaries at Mulzer Crushed Stone and United Materials on Old Green River Road, they gathered sufficient evidence to obtain a search warrant for Vile's home.

During the search of Vile's home on Tuesday, deputies say tools and construction equipment reported stolen in these burglaries were recovered. The approximate value of the items was $10,000.00.

The sheriff's office says additional items taken from Mulzer Crushed Stone facilities in Warrick County were found, as well as baseball equipment taken from the nearby Highland Baseball Fields.

Authorities tells 14 News that evidence was also recovered implicating Vile in an attempted theft of an ATM in Evansville.

At this point, authorities say Vile is not cooperating with the investigation, which is ongoing and additional arrests are possible.

At the time of the search on Tuesday, Vile was already in custody at the Vanderburgh County Confinement Center on unrelated charges. He is being held there without bond.

The Evansville Police Department and the Warrick County Sheriff's Office are also expected to file charges related to thefts in their jurisdictions.
