Plywood covered some of the doors and the parking lot was roped off to prevent people from entering. An employee remained at the front desk fielding calls but the public was not being allowed in the building.

The sheriff’s auction is set for 10 a.m. Tuesday at the Bartholomew County Sheriff’s Department, 543 Second St.
