One man was arrested and police are searching for a second man in connection to the suspected theft of anhydrous ammonia from the Osgood area.

Ripley County deputies responded to the Osgood branch of the Laughery Valley Ag Co-Op area during the early morning hours of Monday for a report about a suspicious vehicle possibly involved in stealing anhydrous ammonia.

Police located a vehicle matching the description from the report and after an alleged traffic violation, the car was pulled over.

That’s when “The passenger of the vehicle immediately fled from the scene on foot,” according to Ripley County Sheriff Tom Grills.

The deputy located multiple modified tanks of anhydrous ammonia inside of and in the vicinity of the vehicle. Police believe those tanks contained anhydrous taken from the Co-Op.

The driver of the vehicle, Brian Burton, 24, of Edinburgh was arrested for illegal possession of Anhydrous Ammonia, Possession of Methamphetamine, and Theft.

The passenger that fled, whom police believe to be 23-year-old Brandon Jacobs, of Nashville, Indiana, was not located at the time and is currently being sought as a person of interest.

Jacobs also has an active warrant for probation violation in Bartholomew County.

A joint investigation is underway by the Ripley County Sheriff’s Office and the Indiana State Police.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Jacobs, or the investigation, are urged to contact the Sheriff’s office or the Indiana State Police.
