Fountain man arrested after allegedly invading home.

SHERIDAN TOWNSHIP — A 39-year-old Fountain man was arrested by Mason County sheriff’s deputies and charged with second-degree home invasion Saturday, Jan. 9, shortly after 3:30 p.m. after deputies responded to a reported breaking and entering in progress in the 2500 block of North Larson Road.

“The homeowner had come home to find a suspicious vehicle in his yard and the residence front door standing open,” said Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole. “Upon self-investigation, the homeowner, found a male subject inside the home. Upon being confronted by the homeowner, the suspect fled the scene in a vehicle. 

“Based on information provided, including the suspect vehicle description, a ‘be on the lookout’ was broadcast as deputies were responding. A DNR conservation officer patrolling the area spotted the suspect vehicle and detained the suspect until MCSO patrol deputies could arrive.”

Several items were recovered from the suspect and his vehicle that were reportedly stolen from the victim’s home.

The suspect is lodged in the Mason County Jail awaiting arraignment.
