Burglary Investigation Leads to Two Arrests


Two Knox men are jailed after deputies from the Starke County Sheriff’s Office served a search warrant at a rural residence and found numerous stolen items. Clinton Wilcox, 21, and John M. Piper, Jr., 22, are both facing burglary, theft and receiving stolen property charges. They were arrested last Friday following an investigation into several recent break-ins in the Knox and Bass Lake areas. The officers reportedly found several stolen guns, coins, knives and electronics at a residence in the 6000 block of Toto Road. The Starke County Probation and Knox Police Departments assisted with the search.
