A man who police say ran from the scene where a meth lab and stolen items were found was taken into custody.

Jason E. Cooke, 35, of Plymouth was located and taken into custody by the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department on Monday, Jan. 26. Cooke was later transported to the Starke County Jail and is being held on preliminary charges of burglary and theft, according to a Knox City Police Department press release.

The incident stems from a Jan. 19 burglary on South Heaton Street in Knox. Crystal Singleton, 30, of Knox and Alexis Houston, 24, of Knox were arrested the next day at the Stay for Less Motel on U.S. 30 in Hamlet where a search warrant was executed. Cooke reportedly fled the scene before police arrived at the scene.

The incident remains under investigation. If you have any additional information, call the Knox City Police Department at 772-4122.
