(GIBSON CO.) - A Princeton man was arrested Saturday night after Indiana State Police and Gibson County Sheriff's Department responded to a residence at 399 West CR 350 South near Princeton after the property owner observed someone inside his home.

Troopers were also informed that the property owner was not currently at the residence, but was remotely watching his home security monitoring system when he observed the person inside his property.

Troopers arrived and checked the exterior of the residence, but all doors and windows were secure and there were no signs of forced entry. The property owner gave officers permission to forcibly enter his residence.

Officers gained entry and during a search of the residence they found 31-year-old Charles Noble Douglas, of Princeton, hiding under insulation in the attic.
