Kosciusko County officers have located and arrested a Milford man on multiple charges, including possession of meth. Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Deputies responded Thursday to the Kosciusko Community Hospital after officials reported a male subject was discovered to have an active warrant on the premise. Officers met with Gage Michael Wood, 21, Milford, who initially advised officers of a fictitious name, reportedly attempting to use his brother’s identity. Deputies also discovered that Wood had “finished” methamphetamine in his possession.
Wood had been purportedly involved in a January 31st incident located in the 12,000 block of Raggedy Ann Road, Cromwell. On that night, Woods had entered into another individual’s residence and began a verbal altercation with the homeowner. The argument turned violent, and Wood allegedly used a baseball bat to strike the victim. Deputies were notified after the incident, and did observe multiple injuries to the victim’s shoulder, stomach, and facial area, consistent with the shape and size of a ball bat.
Gage Wood was arrested and preliminarily charged with felony battery with a deadly weapon, possession of methamphetamine, and false informing. He is currently being held on a $102,000 bond in the Kosciusko County Jail.
