An Elkhart man faces preliminary charges in connection with a burglary early Monday morning.
The burglary happened just before 5:30 am in the 200 block of Greenhurst Court. The homeowner told police he got home and noticed several things out of place and heard what he thought was someone inside.
When police arrived, they found a man in the kitchen. They told the man to come out, but the man ran deeper into the house. Police were eventually able to arrest the man and incarcerate him in the DeKalb County Jail.
Police learned the suspect, 39-year-old Costa Demoff, had been traveling on foot and was in the DeKalb County area for a couple of days. Demoff was preliminarily charged with burglary of a dwelling and theft.
