Zionsville man arrested after breaking into library


By Ann Marie Shambaugh

Zionsville police arrested a man who broke into the Hussey-Mayfield Memorial Public Library early Sunday morning.

Jason Thurman, 44, of Zionsville has been charged with burglary, criminal mischief and public intoxication. He surrendered to police after officers sent the K9 unit into the building to search for the suspect.

“The suspect came out and pretty much gave himself up,” Zionsville Police Department chief Robert Knox said. “I don’t think he wanted anything to do with the dog searching for him.”

Police were called to the scene after being alerted that a library alarm went off. They set up a perimeter and sent in a team to search for the suspect.

Thurman was taken to the Boone County Jail. Knox said he does not know why Thurman allegedly broke into the library and that it appears that nothing was taken.
