Man Arrested after Breaking into a LaPorte Home

A LaPorte man was arrested Thursday morning after being found in a house without the owner’s permission.

The complainant told police that he and his wife take care of the property and when they arrived at the home, they found a pickup backed into the driveway that is not supposed to be there. The front door was standing open.

When the complainant entered the home, he reportedly found 39-year-old Gregory Miller in the basement. Miller allegedly tried to leave the property before police arrived, but he was blocked in the driveway and was unable to make his getaway.

Officers completed an initial investigation and arrested Miller on preliminary charges of Residential Entry as a Class D felony and Criminal Trespass as a Class A misdemeanor.
