Leesburg A speedy arrest in a Kosciusko County burglary, where police were able to catch the suspect within 12 minutes of the crime!

The burglary happened at a home in the 6,000-block of north, Old State Road 15 in Leesburg Wednesday morning. They located a car that matched the description and took the driver into custody, identified as Mack Samuel Stokes, 43, of Warsaw.

A woman says she heard a noise in the back of her home and was confronted by Stokes. She says he had broken through a window.

Her son grabbed his handgun, and Stokes reportedly got in his car and fled. They say Stokes tried to run him over in the driveway, so the son shot at his vehicle.

Stokes is preliminarily charged with burglary and was being held on $6,000 bond.
