Home invasion leads to taser use


Officers from the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department were called on April 6 regarding a home invasion at a residence on Wall Lake.

According to the police report, the victims at the residence told officers they were detaining the suspect until officers arrived. A fight broke out between the homeowner and the suspect before officers arrived. During the altercation, the Orland Town Marshall arrived at the scene and the suspect was still resisting, leading to the deployment of a taser to gain the suspect’s compliance.

The suspect, Kevin Atkins, 47, of Angola was transported to Parkview Hospital for injuries received during the altercation. This incident is still under investigation and charges are pending.
