Share post:

Wheatfield, IN – In a shocking incident in Wheatfield, a stray bullet shattered the tranquility of a home nursery, leading to the arrest of 24-year-old Max M. Maglio.  The Jasper County Detention Center confirmed Maglio was booked following charges stemming from the events of March 16, when his reckless firearm use resulted in serious property damage and public endangerment.

According to the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to a distress call after a bullet was fired into a residence, specifically penetrating a nursery window. The investigation quickly pointed to Maglio and an associate, who were found to be shooting on nearby property. The deputies discovered the pair had been using a crudely made backstop for shooting practice, which they described as inadequate and unsafe.

Maglio has been charged with two counts of criminal recklessness—one for shooting into a building and another involving a deadly weapon—and one count of criminal mischief for damages ranging between $750 and $50,000. These charges were laid out after a comprehensive probe by local authorities, culminating in an arrest warrant issued by the Jasper Superior Court on April 1. Maglio now awaits the next steps in the legal process as the community seeks to recover from the alarming event.
