Entry Description

Knapp Lake (Noble Co.)-Observant neighbors are responsible for calling the police earlier tonight after they saw what they believed to be a breaking and entering in progress in southwestern Noble County; a call that resulted in the arrest of a 50 year old man from the Madison County city of Elwood.

According to Trooper Justin Snyder, at approximately 8:30 pm, the Noble County Sheriff Department dispatched a breaking and entering in progress in the 0600 block of South Wildwood Drive at Knapp Lake.  Upon arriving in the area, Snyder and Trooper John Silver spoke to the callers who believed that the suspect was still in the residence.

After additional Troopers arrived, and the residence was surrounded, the suspect, identified as Stephen R. Lawrence, 50 of Elwood, Indiana was observed in the residence and at approximately 9:45 pm, he was taken into custody without incident.  Further investigation revealed that the residence, whose owners are Fort Wayne residents, was not occupied by its owners at the time and that Lawrence had been in the area for the last couple of days using a bicycle as a mode of transportation.

Lawrence was taken to and incarcerated in the Noble County Jail under an $8,000 cash bond.  Formal charges will be filed by the Noble County Prosecutor’s Office. 

Preliminary charges:

• Residential Entry, Class D Felony
• Criminal Trespass, Class A Misdemeanor
All Suspects Are Presumed Innocent Until Proven Guilty in a Court of Law
