HUNTINGBURG (NNDC) – Huntingburg police arrested 22-yar old Christopher Clark of Petersburg the second time where called to a residence twice early Sunday morning.

At about 3:45AM, HPD officers were called to a home in the 300 block of North Chestnut Street where a fight was reported to be in progress. HPD says when they arrived they found a shirtless Clark yelling and crying in the yard.

Police say they tried to calm Clark down, but he kept screaming at them. Clark told officers he was trying to speak with someone in the apartment building but residents in the apartment told officers they did not wish to talk with Clark.

Officers determined Clark was intoxicated. He was taken to a relative’s residence on First Avenue in Huntingburg.

But, at about 5:00AM, police were called back to the same apartment building; Clark was reportedly back in the back yard yelling and screaming.

HPD found Clark in a vehicle pretending to be asleep. He was taken into custody; charged with a misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct.

Huntingburg Woman Arrested For Fraud; Theft

NeukamHUNTINGBURG (NNDC) – A local woman was arrested Friday for allegedly taking a blank check out of a checkbook and cashing it.

HPD says 42-year old Eugenia Neukam (pictured) is charged with a Level 6 felony count of fraud and a misdemeanor count of theft.

The Dubois County Sheriff’s Department says their investigation began this past Monday, when a man told deputies checks were missing from a pickup truck he says he allowed Neukam to borrow a week ago Friday (october 2nd).

The man told deputies he noticed $300 missing from his checking account the next day. DCSD says the man’s bank told him that a $300 check made out to the name of Mercedes Miller had been cashed by a woman driving a black truck.

Deputies say Neukam has admitted to taking the check, signing Mercedes Miller’s name on the back and cashing it.

She is now charged with a Level 6 Felony count of fraud, and a Class A misdemeanor count of theft.
