Police are searching for two men who are believed to have broken into several properties along Karen Drive in Zionsville.
During a patrol at approximately 1:25 a.m. June 12, a Boone County Sheriff’s Office deputy saw two African American males walking along the roadway in the Lakeview neighborhood, where several recent thefts have been reported. The men appeared to be nervous and began walking away from the deputy, who noticed a backpack leaf blower and a new box of baby diapers out of place along the roadway.
The deputy instructed the men to stop, but they fled on foot to a gold Hyundai XG3 and sped off, running a stop sign and heading west on Oak Street. Zionsville police officers caught up to the vehicle as it crashed into the Stonegate subdivision entrance sign.
The suspects fled on foot. Zionsville and Hamilton County K-9 units were called in to help track the suspects, who are believed to have gotten into another vehicle and left the area.
Police said that approximately five properties along Karen Drive had been broken into, including vehicles and outbuildings. Anyone with information on the suspects or incident is asked to contact the Boone County Sheriff’s Office at email@example.com
