Victims return home, find suspect in garage

PENDLETON, Ind. —  Homeowners returned to their house to find it being burglarized Thursday afternoon.

The man suspected of the home invasion, David C. Case, 32, of rural Madison County, faces charges of burglary, theft and child neglect and is in custody in the Madison County Jail, according to a press release from Madison County Sheriff Ron Richardson.

According to the release, the homeowners returned to their home in Pendleton and saw a strange vehicle parked in their driveway. When they opened the garage door, a man ran from the attached garage, got in the vehicle and sped away.

The victims reported they saw a small child in a car seat in the suspect’s vehicle.

Sheriff’s deputies investigated the area and found the car and driver matching the suspect’s description. Richardson said the call from the victims came in at about 2 p.m. and Case was arrested at about 4 p.m.

Case has a history of burglary and drug abuse. In 2003, he was arrested and charged with burglary and theft. He pleaded guilty to the charges in 2005 and received an 18-month suspended sentence. Later in 2005, he was found guilty of violating his work release agreement for using opiates and painkillers, and his sentenced was enhanced to five years.

Case also has past convictions of battery and OWI.
