Drugs and money may have been a motivation for a home invasion in Warsaw.
The break-in happened Monday morning at a home on the east side of Warsaw, according to WNDU.
20-year-old Daricus Phillips allegedly asked if the homeowner’s nephew was home. He left when he told the nephew wasn’t home, then returned with 22-year-old Jwain Sullivan, according to the homeowner.
The two then forced themselves inside the home, continuing to ask about the nephew and the money they were looking for. The homeowner was hit in the face with a crowbar wrapped in a towel, and her fiance also was hit in the face when he woke up, according to police.
The two left with a PlayStation 4, a cell phone, cash, and some marijuana. Phillips and his girlfriend, 18-year-old Taylor Brandon of Mentone, were found in the area. Sullivan was later arrested during a traffic stop in Winona Lake, along with the stolen items.
All three are charged with robbery with a deadly weapon or bodily injury, which is a level 3 felony. Phillips also had a misdemeanor warrant, Sullivan got an extra residential entry felony charge, and Brandon earned an aiding/inducing or causing a felony charge.
All three are being held on over $20,000 bond at Kosciusko County Jail.
