CORYDON, IN (WAVE) – Deputies in Harrison County, Indiana who arrested a man after a home invasion early Friday later discovered that until one week ago he was an Indiana State Police trooper.

Around 12:45 a.m., Captain Brad Shepherd of the Harrison County Sheriff's Office said dispatchers received a 911 call from a home in the 4200 block of Whiskey Run Road. The caller said a man had fired a gun and come inside the house.

Arriving officers found Raymond Hunt inside the home. Shepherd said Hunt was being "belligerent," and was "making no sense and talking out of his head."

Hunt was arrested and charged with burglary, criminal confinement, residential entry, criminal recklessness with a firearm, and operating while intoxicated. He was booked into the Harrison County Jail and is being held on bond.

Shepherd tells WAVE 3 that their investigation has found no connection between Hunt, who gave his address as being in Plainfield west of Indianapolis, and the residents of the house he broke into.

Sgt. Jerry Goodin of the ISP Sellersburg post said Hunt was hired as a trooper in July 2007 and resigned from the department on October 5. His duty assignment had been with the Indianapolis post.

At this point in their investigation, neither ISP nor Harrison County authorities have been able to determine why Hunt was in southern Indiana.
