Arrest Made after Deputies Respond to Home Invasion

A Vanderburgh County man is in jail today after allegedly committing a home invasion in Grandin Pointe subdivision (formerly Westbrook Trailer Park).

On Thursday, December 7, 2017 at approximately 11:00 AM a resident in the 6000 block of Springfield Drive called 911 to report a home invasion. The resident explained that a relative, Mr. Sean Michael Keith, kicked in the door to his home and threatened his family with a knife. The resident reportedly produced a handgun, after which the suspect fled on foot.

The Sheriff’s Office located Mr. Keith walking near Saint Joseph Avenue and took him into custody without further incident. A motive for the attack has yet to be determined, although combined drug intoxication is believed to have been the primary factor.

Mr. Keith was booked into the Vanderburgh County Jail and will make an initial court appearance on Friday.
