2nd arrest made in burglary at officer’s home

A second man has been arrested after a car and guns were stolen from the home of a sheriff’s office commander.

Joseph N. Kern, 25, Indianapolis, was arrested on charges of burglary and automobile theft after police said he went to the home of Johnson County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Randy Werden and stole a car from his garage, according to a police report.

One of Werden’s neighbors heard a noise and spotted two men in the garage Tuesday afternoon and got the license plate number of their car, the report said. The neighbor told police one of the men drove away in Werden’s Ford Fairlane, and the other man drove off in the car they came in.
