On September 7th, at approximately 9:00 A.M the Marshall County Sheriff`s Department received a call about a theft that had occurred.
Officers spoke with the victim and identified two possible suspects that were involved.
After hearing the description of the two individuals, officers observed one of the individuals on Maple Road approximately a mile south of US 6. As Officer Tempelman approached the suspect he fled into the woods after being ordered to stop. A foot pursuit took place and after a short time the suspect was apprehended.
The individual identified as 25-year-old Nicholas Allen William of South Bend was taken to the Marshall County Jail where he was charged with Resisting Law Enforcement and Failing to Identify. He was held on a $750 cash bond.
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 jury at which the State is obligated to provide proof beyond a reasonable doubt before a judgment of guilt may be made.
