INDIANAPOLIS (Sept. 27, 2014) – Thanks to tips from the public, an arrest has been made in a home burglary  on the east side earlier this month.

Scott Herrington says he and his family were away from home in the 1800 block of Bazil Avenue on September 1st.

When his wife arrived back at the house that afternoon, she noticed a window air conditioner unit had been moved. Scott started looking through his home surveillance video and saw the reason for the moved air conditioner unit.

In the video, a white male in his 20s is seen approaching the front door on foot around 1 p.m.   While appearing to talk on his cell phone, the man rings the doorbell, then knocks on the front door.  Seconds later, he starts looking into windows around the house. A camera on the other side of the house shows the man shoving the air conditioner unit into the house, then climbing in after it.

After a short time in the house, the burglar is seen leaving with a backpack belonging to Herrington’s 10-year-old son. A valuable coin collection and some cash were missing from the home, presumably in the backpack.

The homeowner provided FOX59 news with the surveillance video of the suspect breaking into his house.  Several people  saw the video and called in tips that led IMPD detectives to identify the suspect.

Cory Horseman, 27, was arrested on preliminary charges of burglary, theft, resisting law enforcement and driving while license is suspended.
