11 minors cited for underage drinking

Eleven people under the age of 21 were cited and released after the limousine they were riding in was stopped by Elkhart County police shortly before midnight Nov. 21.

According to police, a Goshen resident reported to Elkhart County police there was a limousine full of teenagers who appeared to be drinking and exposing themselves at the corner of Ind. 15 and U.S. 20 at 11:59 p.m. Nov. 21.  

The vehicle was stopped by officers on Ind. 15, just north of Goshen. Officers from the Sheriff’s Teenage Alcohol Reduction (STAR) team assisted at the scene.

Police said they found 11 people in the vehicle who were younger than 21 and drinking alcohol. Six of the people were under the age of 18. All of the people under the age of 21 who had been drinking were cited into court for illegal consumption of an alcoholic beverage. The juveniles were released to the custody of their parents and were cited into court.

Man accused of

resisting arrest, escape


A Leesburg man faces numerous charges after reportedly fleeing from Indiana Conservation officers approximately 5 p.m. Saturday.

Charles Norris, 29, was reportedly seen coming out of the woods by an Indiana Conservation officer on patrol. The officer had seen a vehicle near Durham Lake.

The officer said he discovered there was a felony warrant issued out of Whitley County for Norris. The officer requested assistance before attempting to put Norris in custody. Norris fled from the officers prior to being handcuffed, officers reported. After a short foot pursuit, Norris reportedly continued to resist officers as they attempted to put him in handcuffs.

Norris was transported by a North Webster ambulance to Kosciusko Community Hospital for medical examination and then transported to the Kosciusko County Jail.

Officers reported that upon his arrival at the jail, Norris attempted to escape by jumping from the slowly moving police vehicle and ran away on foot with his hands handcuffed behind his back.

He was chased down a second time by conservation officers and escorted back to the jail. During the booking process, police said that Norris claimed to have ingested balloons containing methamphetamines earlier in the day so he was transported back to Kosciusko Community Hospital for additional medical examination.

He was cleared and incarcerated at Kosciusko County Jail on charges of resisting law enforcement, escaping law enforcement, possession of cocaine, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and failure to procure a hunting license.
