Thursday, September 22, 2022

STEUBEN COUNTY, IN - Three men have been arrested after a homeowner interrupted a burglary late Wednesday morning.

The Steuben County Sheriff's Department is investigating a daytime residential burglary that occurred in the 5600 block of East Division Road in Steuben County's rural Scott Township. Reports indicate deputies responded just after 9:15 AM to a report of a residential burglary in progress on Division Road.

The initial report indicated that the homeowner came home to find that the residence had been burglarized and located two male intruders still inside the residence.

Just prior to confronting the intruders, the homeowner armed himself with a firearm before locating the intruders hiding inside a locked bedroom. During the confrontation, the homeowner discharged the firearm twice but no one was struck or injured.

Investigators say one suspect fled the residence through a window and then fled the area in a vehicle. After being located, he was later identified as 49 year old Ricky Lee Harget of Angola.


The other suspect, identified as 28 year old Blake William Harris of Hamilton, reportedly remained at the scene.

As the initial investigation progressed and unfolded, a third suspect involved was identified as 28 year old Troy Alexander Polk of Angola. Polk was located and taken into custody.

The trio were each arrested and charged by authorities.

A majority of the property allegedly taken during the burglary was recovered following the execution of a search warrant and returned to the victim.
