Huntingburg Man Arrested on Charges Stemming from Family Video Store Trespassing

Jasper - A Huntingburg man was arrested for trespassing inside of the old Family Video Store last Saturday, among other charges.

On Saturday, September 11th, around 3:30 p.m., the Jasper Police Department received a complaint of a subject sleeping inside of the old Family Video store. Upon officers arrival they located a male subject sleeping in the building, using a whiskey bottle as a pillow. 

The male subject was woken up and escorted out of the building. The male subject refused to identify himself and refused to cooperate - then became combative with officers. 

After being handcuffed, an Indiana ID was located on the subject identifying him as Steven Eveland, 34, of Huntingburg. 

Eveland was found to be under the influence of an alcoholic beverage at the time of his arrest. It is believed he would not identify himself because he had outstanding warrants through Dubois County for Domestic Battery and Invasion of Privacy. 

Once Eveland was detained and witnesses were interviewed it was also learned that Eveland also destroyed property belonging to Highland Ventures, the parent company for Family Video, while at this location.

Eveland is facing charges of Criminal Trespass, Criminal Mischief, Public Intoxication, and Resisting Arrest, as well as previous outstanding warrants.
