The Loves Truck Stop at US 30 and Pioneer Drive called 911 Sunday afternoon about 1:30 to report a male stealing items from the store. The male suspect left prior to Plymouth Police arriving on the scene but the car he was in was stopped by a Starke County unit.
Police did a county line transfer and 33 year old Gene Meegan who was listed as homeless was arrested and taken to Marshall County Jail and lodged on a $1,500 cash bond.
Listeners and readers are reminded that charging information supported by an affidavit of probable cause is merely an allegation that a crime has been committed and that there is only probable cause to believe a crime has been committed. They are presumed innocent throughout the proceedings and are entitled to be represented by counsel and entitled to a trial by jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
