Burglary suspect offered homeowners $200 not to call police

Northern Indiana police say a home burglary suspect allegedly offered two homeowners who found him inside their house $200 not to call police.

Thirty-one-year-old Casey Madden of Elkhart was charged last month in a September home burglary. He remains jailed at Elkhart County’s jail on burglary and other charges.

Court documents say the homeowners returned home Sept. 30 to find a strange minivan in their driveway and a man and a woman inside their home.

The male homeowner told officers the man offered him $200 in cash not to call police. The man rejected the offer and told the pair to leave.

Police said a later search of the minivan uncovered two video game systems taken from the home.  (AP)
