Jimmerson Lake - The Steuben County Sheriff's Department has identified a suspect in a porch theft incident in Steuben County's rural Jamestown Township.

According to a news release, detectives followed up on information received from tips regarding a theft from a residential porch that had occurred at Lane 101D on Jimmerson Lake. The incident had been reported the day before and was captured on video by the homeowner's surveillance camera. Images from that video footage were then shared online via social media.

The tip information, combined with investigative efforts, lead to a suspect being identified as Cody Wayne Pike, age 18 of Orland (IN). Following an interview with Pike, Sheriff's detectives submitted the case to the Steuben County Prosecutor's Office to review for misdemeanor theft charges.

Authorities say any criminal charge is merely an accusation at this time, and the alleged suspect is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
