Police release name of alleged burglary suspect

The La Porte County Sheriff’s Office released the name of a suspect who was arrested Saturday for allegedly attempting to burglarize homes.

The burglary happened in west central La Porte County Saturday morning near Small and Forrester Roads.

Sheriff’s deputies captured and arrested 22-year-old Eric Rose of Michigan City.

Police say Rose was seen entering a residence by a homeowner who was working in an outbuilding on his property at the time.

The homeowner, who police say armed himself with a rifle, confronted Rose and held him at gunpoint while sheriff’s deputies were responding.

He fled from the homeowner but was captured and arrested nearby a short time later by an officer.

Rose is also the suspect in a burglary at a residence in the same area at that time, according to police.

Rose is currently held in the La Porte County jail on a charge of residential entry, a level six felony.

Detectives are continuing to investigate the case and police say additional criminal charges are expected.
