Homeowner Surprises Burglar

A suspect burglar got more than he bargained for after breaking into a Mishawaka man's home. It happened just after 10:30, Friday morning, in the 2000 block of Lynn Street. Too bad for the burglar, the homeowner came home. He said he drove up to his home to find a car in the driveway with the engine running and his front door kicked in. Inside, he confronted the suspect, chased him to the back of the home, then pounced and detained him until police arrived. The suspect was taken into custody and transported a local hospital for treatment and later transported to the St. Joe County Jail.
