Police Report




Ryan J. Mattingly, 27, Loogootee, was arrested by Loogootee Police Tuesday on a writ of attachment warrant. While at the residence, police and a witness detected an odor of anhydrous ammonia. A search warrant was issued, and an HCL generator and other items associated with manufacturing methamphetamine were located. Mattingly also was charged with manufacturing meth and was transported to the Martin County Security Center. The Martin County Sheriff’s Department and Indiana State Police Clandestine Lab Team assisted.



9:08 p.m. – An employee of O’Reilly Auto Parts in Loogootee called the Martin County Sheriff’s Department to report a former employee had been in the store restroom for a while, had been acting strangely and had a handgun.

Major T.A. Burkhardt and Loogootee Police Officer Rick Norris responded and found the complainant talking to the former employee, identified as Kyle Robert Lee, 21, of Loogootee. Burkhardt advised Lee seemed to be nervous and attempting to avoid the law enforcement officers. When Burkhardt mentioned the complaint of having a handgun, Lee admitted he did have a handgun on his person and did not have a valid permit for it. Further investigation revealed Lee had stolen items while inside the store.

Lee was arrested and transported to the Martin County Sheriff’s Office, where he was booked on charges of theft and possession of a handgun without a permit. Bond was set at $25,000.
