Evansville IN, November 9, 2013, Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Deputies have arrested an Evansville man for a burglary to a Pollack Avenue home which occurred in late October. Robert Lee Parker was arrested at the Woodcreek Inn and Suites at 2530 US 41 on a charge of Burglary, a Class B Felony. Parker is currently on parole for charges including Burglary and Theft.
During the course of their investigation, sheriff’s office investigators developed information about Parker as a possible suspect in the burglary. Knowing Parker was on parole, they contacted parole authorities an on November 8th, a sheriff’s deputy accompanied an Indiana Parole Agent to Parker’s room while a parole visit was conducted. Property believed to be stolen during the burglary was visible in the room. Parker consented to a more thorough search by deputies and the property was confirmed as stolen. Parker was interviewed but declined to cooperate.
Parker was transported to the Vanderburgh County Detention Center and is being held without bond pending a hearing.
Based on evidence recovered from the room, we expect additional charges related to other burglaries and thefts to be filed. This investigation is ongoing.
Robert Lee Parker, age 43, Evansville
