Tracking technology and an iPhone app led to the arrests of three people in connection with a home burglary south of Seymour.

Arrested were Heather Gonzales, 30, Seymour; Jamie Vasquez, 28, Seymour; and Robert A. Kinser, 28, Crothersville. They were booked into the Jackson County Jail at Brownstown.

Gonzales was arrested on charges of possession of stolen property, theft, residential entry, maintaining a common nuisance, neglect of a dependent and possession of marijuana.

Vasquez was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana, burglary, possession of stolen property and neglect of a dependent.

Kinser was arrested on charges of burglary and theft.

The investigation started with a burglary reported at 7:16 p.m. Wednesday in the 8900 block of Elizabeth’s Way in the New Farmington addition.

A resident reported several items were stolen, including electronic devices equipped with tracking capabilities, according to reserve officer Scott Davis with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department.

Two of the stolen items that could be tracked were an iPhone and a computer tablet.

“Using this tracking method, the homeowner and the sheriff’s department were able to track down a suspect vehicle and found one of the electronic items in that car,” Davis said.
