On Oct. 26, officers from the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department responded to a burglary in progress call at a residence in the 11500 block of CR 335S in Stroh. According to the police report, a witness at the scene was able to give officers a description of two vehicles and three subjects that were observed in the area.
LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department detectives located one of the vehicles driving in the area. After a short vehicle pursuit, the driver of the suspect vehicle fled on foot. A Police K9 was called to the scene to do a track, however, officers were not able to locate the driver.
A short time later a resident who lives in the area where the vehicle pursuit ended contacted the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department to report someone had stolen his truck out of his driveway. It is believed the driver of the vehicle involved in the pursuit fled on foot and stole this truck. Deputies recovered the stolen truck after it was found parked in a field and released it back to its owner.
Trooper Jon Silver was checking an area where officers received information about the possible location of one of the suspects involved in the attempted burglary. Trooper Silver located one of the suspect vehicles and made contact with two male subjects that were outside. Two males, Jeremy Tuttle, 27, of Hudson and Thomas Harrell, 37, also of Hudson, were arrested and taken to the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department on charges of Burglary. Tuttle is also wanted out of Steuben County for a probation violation.
Officers checked a few more locations in the Stroh area looking for the third suspect, but he has not been located at this time.
These cases are still under investigation.
