POLICE NEWS FOR MAY 17, 2014: More details released on home intruder

Police have released more details about a Washington Township burglary that occurred while the resident was home asleep.

Elkhart County police said the break-in occurred Wednesday at a residence in the Timberbrook Community along C.R. 19 in Bristol. The resident, a 26-year-old woman, was sleeping when an entry door was forced open around 5:45 a.m.

Police said the woman awoke and saw a light-skinned Hispanic male around 20 years old in the home. The intruder was clean-shaven and wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt and black jeans. He was carrying a gym bag.

According to police, the intruder fled the residence after taking some items on his way out the door.

Anyone with information about the crime can contact the Elkhart County Sheriff’s Department Detective Bureau by calling 574-891-2300, or by clicking on the “Submit a Tip” button located at the top of the ECSD Facebook page.

Fidel Dijar-Araiza, 32, was sentenced in Elkhart Superior Court 3 to serve 30 years in the Indiana Department of Correction on a Class A felony charge of dealing cocaine. In exchange for Dijar-Araiza’s guilty plea, prosecutors had dropped two other Class A felony charges of cocaine dealing.

Dijar-Araiza was given credit for 332 days he’d already been incarcerated. He will be allowed to request a sentence modification in 2018.
