January 22 — On Jan. 11, a multi-agency police task force began keeping a careful eye on Anderson resident Rual S. Hogue. Six Anderson detectives had already begun watching his house a week earlier. Hogue, the suspected “cat burglar” in a two-year statewide investigation, didn’t make a wrong move until Jan. 16. Police were waiting. They arrested him in Greenfield, alleging he broke into a home and stole $70 cash and a new set of bath towels. Police believe he may be responsible for as many as 250 “cat burglar” type break-ins, from Fort Wayne to Evansville.
