Pair sought in credit card theft spree

The Allen County Sheriff’s Department is requesting the public’s help in catching two women suspected of using a stolen credit card.

The card was taken Sept. 18 and used to make several purchases for an undisclosed amount of money, the sheriff’s department said.

On Friday, the sheriff’s department released surveillance-camera images of the two women in a local business.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the sheriff’s department at 449-7412.

Jail inmate died from drug toxicity

Authorities have determined that a Steuben County Jail inmate died accidentally from a mix of drugs he had in his system before he was locked up.

Autopsy and toxicology reports showed that Cody Nathaniel Mosley died Aug. 5 from “multiple drug toxicity,” according to the Steuben County Sheriff’s Department.

Angola police had arrested Mosley, 23, of Kendallville on suspicion of driving with a suspended license, leaving the scene of a property-damage crash and operating a vehicle while intoxicated by drugs, police said. He was evaluated at Cameron Memorial Community Hospital in Angola before he was taken to jail, the sheriff’s department said. During a routine check at the jail, a confinement officer found Mosley unresponsive and not breathing, alone in his cell, 11 hours after police had arrested him.

He was returned to the hospital and pronounced dead, the sheriff’s department said.

Police searched a Warsaw home Thursday and arrested four people on charges related to methamphetamine, according to the Warsaw Police Department.

Narcotics officers received a tip that drugs were being dealt at 907 Oak Brook Place, a residence in the Forest Park mobile home park.

An investigation led police to raid the home Thursday afternoon.

The charges brought against the four people arrested were all felonies.

Connie Slusher, 53, of Warsaw was charged with two counts of dealing meth and two counts of meth possession.
