CORYDON, IN (WAVE) – Four men accused of more than a dozen burglaries in southern Indiana are linked to a white supremacist group. The men are also accused of making and selling meth. One of the guys is behind bars after a police chase on Sunday, but the Harrison County Sheriff's Office is still looking for the other three.

"These are local boys from here in Harrison County," said Harrison County Sheriff Rod Seelye.

Guns, bows, coins, jewelry and more, the Harrison County Sheriff's Office says anything of value, the group grabbed.

"These people are getting rid of stuff quickly, so we believe a lot of stuff has already been sold or gotten rid of through pawn shops," said Seelye.

According to Seelye, they have recovered more than $20,000 worth of stolen property. Behind it all, he points to Gary Underwood, Steven Springer, Joshua Cheatham, and Jeremy Cook.

"Several of them are members of the Aryan Brotherhood or off shoots of white supremacist groups," said Seelye.

Cook is currently in the Clark County Jail. That arrest led detectives to a storage unit in Floyd County and a home in Corydon.

"They are a pretty elaborate group, the meth lab, items from the meth lab, they were actually smuggling some of the ingredients from Europe," said Seelye.

Seelye said at they also recovered a stolen motorcycle and a house full of other people's possessions.

"A wrecker come by with one of them motorcycles on the back of it, but I thought it was odd," said Bill Caughey, whose parents live nearby a home where the stolen items were kept.

"It does concern me because this is a quiet country setting out here, it's not like the big city, like I'm from Indianapolis and it's different up there, we're use to it up there," said Caughey.

Seelye believes the men are no longer in Harrison County and they are considered armed and dangerous. He said U.S. Marshals and other law enforcement agencies are also tracking them. If you have any information, give them a call at 812-738-2195.
