POLICE NEWS: One warrant leads to three arrests

Three people were arrested by LaGrange County police Friday at a residence in Howe.

At 8:43 p.m., police went to 1920 E. 400 North, Howe, with a warrant for the arrest of Zabrina L. Brown, 37. She was arrested.

The police investigation then led to the arrest of Kayla M. Gates, 27, Quincy Mich., who was found to have a Steuben County warrant for an alleged methamphetamine violation. Police said they found a large number firearms at the residence.

Russell A. Lewis, 52, owned the 17 firearms, police said, and since he had been previously convicted of serious/violent felonies, he was not permitted to be in possession of firearms.

He was arrested on a charge of unlawful possession of a firearm by a serous violent felon. Brown and Lewis were incarcerated at the LaGrange County jail.

Four injured in crash near Wakarusa

Four people were injured in a two-vehicle collision at Ind. 19, north of C.R. 38 in Wakarusa at 9:18 a.m. Sunday.

According to Elkhart County police, Matthew K. Johnson, 34, Nappanee, tried to quickly stop the 2001 Land Rover Discovery he was driving for a slower moving vehicle. That vehicle, a 1996 Toyota Camry driven by Kelly M. McClintock, 18, Milford, was traveling slowly due to horse-drawn buggies.

Police said Johnson swerved off the shoulder of Ind. 19 to avoid the slowed traffic. His wheels ran over gravel, causing him to veer back on the roadway and struck the rear end of the Camry.

Three passengers, Kevin McClintock, 55; Ian McClintock, 12; and Patricia McClintock, 49, all of Milford, along with Kelly McClintock, were transported to Elkhart General Hospital for complaint of neck pain and head pain. Johnson was issued a written warning for conditions requiring driving at a reduced speed.
