A Crothersville man earlier charged in Scott County with possession of stolen property, theft, fraud and forgery following a break-in at Crothersville Town Hall has now been charged with burglary, theft and criminal mischief in Jackson County in connection with the April 13 break-in at Crothersville Town Hall.

According to Crothersville Chief of Police Vurlin McIntosh Brandon Bush, 26, of Crothersville was arrested around 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 3 by McIntosh and Jackson County Sheriff’s Department Detective Rick Blaker at Bush’s residence on North Preston Street.
Bush was arrested on April 17 by Scott County authorities after surveillance tapes recorded him charging over $990 of purchases at the Scottsburg Wal-Mart Store using a credit card from the town of Crothersville and allegedly taken in the April 13 break-in.
There were no signs of forced entry at the town hall. Workers discovered the burglary when they opened for business the next morning.
Taken in the burglary was a Wal-Mart and Jackson-Jennings Co-Op credit card. The Co-Op card was later found by a water utility customer and returned to town hall, McIntosh said at the time.
Bush had been incarcerated in Scott County Jail since his arrest until last month when his bond was lowered and he was able to bond out of jail, McIntosh said.
After being booked into Jackson County Jail Friday evening he was freed on a $10,000 bond through a bail bondsman around noon on Saturday, McIntosh said.
Bush is the son of Crothersville Clerk-Treasurer Nalona Bush.
