A 54-year-old Logansport man was arrested Sunday after police say he stole meat from the home of a homicide victim.
Deputies from the Cass County Sheriff’s Department responded to a call on West 275 North, where a man was seen pushing a bicycle away from the home. Robert McGuire was later arrested and found with a bag of 10 to 15 pounds of frozen meat, according to Deputy Gary Armstrong.
Armstrong said the burglarized home formerly was the home of 76-year-old Dave Schroder, who was reportedly shot to death in September 2011. His neighbor, Loren Fry, awaits trial on a murder charge in the case.
Armstrong said a man contacted police after seeing the door to the barn was open and had a bicycle next to it.
“At that point, the house hadn’t been entered in,” Armstrong said.
A man was later seen leaving the home with his bicycle and a bag, which Armstrong said contained frozen meat.
McGuire faces charges of burglary, possession of methampethamine, possession of paraphernalia and theft.
The drug charges result from less than 3 grams of meth that were found on his person, Armstrong said.
McGuire remains in the Cass County Jail, with a hold on his bail from Howard County.
