Police located two suspects who were believed to be preparing to break into a home south of Pierceton, but at this time no charges have been filed.
At about 1:45 p.m. today, the owner of a home on CR 700 South arrived to find two suspects inside of a vehicle outside of his residence.
According to scanner traffic, the suspects were in a blue 2006 Saturn Vue. The homeowner tried to block the suspects in the driveway, but they drove away. The homeowner followed the suspects to a home on Monroe Road near Sellers Lake where they abandoned the vehicle and ran to a second vehicle, a black Ford Ranger.
A truck matching the description was found by Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department deputies at CR 600 South and Monroe Road, but the suspects had apparently fled on foot.
Police were in the vicinity of CR 600 South and SR 13 near Pierceton where they searched a wooded area and nearby residences. Police say the suspects were located and interviewed but not arrested. The homeowner reported nothing was missing and it appeared he arrived before the suspects were able to gain entry into the house.
The suspects names have not been released.
