A man and woman are under arrest accused of breaking into the home of an elderly woman and stealing more than $2,700 in property this summer.
David Durwood Caudill, age 38, and Lisa Marie Ryan, age 37, of Batavia, were both booked into the Brown County Jail on Tuesday, Dec. 5 facing preliminary charges of burglary, a second-degree felony, and theft from a protected class, a fourth-degree felony.
Caudill and Ryan allegedly broke into the victim’s home near Yankeetown and removed a flat-screen television, checks and jewelry between August and November of this year. Court records estimate the stolen property to be worth approximately $2,737.
The alleged victim is a relative of Caudill in her 70s.
The couple pleaded not guilty to the charges on Wednesday. Preliminary hearings have been scheduled for later in the month.
