INDIANAPOLIS - Officers are making good on IMPD Chief Rick Hite's promise that every person involved with recent residential break-ins would be brought to justice. Police said a 10th person has been arrested after being linked to a violent home robbery.
IMPD said Tuesday that Ira Marsh (pictured) was arrested and preliminarily charged with assisting a criminal, theft (receiving stolen property) and conspiracy to commit robbery. Detectives said he's linked to the Oct. 24 break-in at a home on Spring Mill Road.
IMPD said Marsh has been selling items stolen from the home at a pawn shop at 38th and Illinois streets.
Officers told RTV6 this arrest is an example of the chief's pledge that every single person who helped the robbers in any way will be arrested.
One of the suspects, Taiwan Lundy, had his initial court appearance Tuesday, where he was charged with 40 felony counts.
"Every trip to the ATM, it counts," said Deputy Prosecutor Barb Thrathen. "Every time you beat on someone with a broken stick from the kicked-in doorway, with a pizza stone, with ceramic tiles... every time you beat on those people, there's a charge."
IMPD announced Monday it was asking the public to help locate another suspect linked to both break-ins: 20-year-old Adrian Anthony.
IMPD announced plans to hold a news conference about the case on Wednesday.
