The vehicle was later located on Feb. 11 on Fennimore Street when a caller said that the vehicle was blocking his driveway, the complaint states.

Prior to locating the vehicle, deputies with the Marion County Sheriff’s Department learned that Steven Colombo, 31, of Fairmont, had broken into the Dunn Avenue residence once again and “removed the remains of the homeowner’s mother from the residence,” deputies said.

Deputies were able to locate Colombo inside the residence on Feb. 19, and upon taking him into custody they found in his possession two cell phones, 0.3 grams of heroin, 0.3 grams of methamphetamine, 0.25 grams of Fentanyl, more than a dozen Tramadol pills, a set of digital scales and $341 in U.S. currency, according to the complaint.

Colombo has been charged with burglary, possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance and three counts of grand larceny. He is being held in North Central Regional Jail on $501,012 bond.
