These tools can build a house. They can also build a case against Anthony Ulm.
"Since I've been on the department where we've known someone who has committed a lot of thefts," EPD Sgt. Jason Cullum said. "I don't know if we've had anyone who's committed this many."
Investigators seized hundreds, if not, thousands of items. The included everything from saws to sanders, wrenches, boxes bolts and bicycles. Investigators seized all of the items at Ulm's home.
"When they went to the home on Taft, it was almost like an episode of Hoarders," Sgt. Cullum said. "The house was full of items. The amount of items he hung onto is unusual but it doesn't mean other items were taken that he didn't pawn, trade or sell on the street."
Investigators can answer the 'who' and the 'what' but struggle to answer the 'when' and 'why.'
"Ulm is a participant of the work release program of Warrick County so his movements were restricted a little bit," Sgt. Cullum said. "But obviously they weren't restricted enough to keep him from committing the crimes."
"Hopefully it won't take long on an individual basis to get people their stuff back. Big picture, it's going to take a while because there's a lot of stuff and we think quite a few victims."
