Bartholomew County sheriff’s deputies arrested three people after investigating a burglary and a reported suspicious vehicle in the 1800 block of West Tellman Road.

Deputy Matt Bush was sent to the location about the vehicle at 7:24 p.m. Wednesday where he saw a black Chevrolet passenger car in the roadway in front of a residence, deputies said.

The vehicle had its flashers on and a female identified as Kelly Parker, 32, 10025 Lucy Drive, was inside, deputies said. Parker told the deputy the car was out of gas.

Bush saw that the front door of a nearby residence was broken and open, deputies said. Bush called inside the residence to identify himself and a man identified as Garry Robinson, 31, Elizabethtown, came out with a can of butane in his hand, but dropped the can on command. Although Parker had said she was alone, Bush told the deputy he was with Parker, deputies said.
