Formal charges filed in burglary


Allen County prosecutors filed formal charges against Christian W. Bradley, a 21-year-old man accused of burglarizing a home on Fort Wayne’s south side.

Bradley, whose address is now listed as Woodburn, was arrested last week on two separate charges of burglary. At that time, his address was listed in court documents as the 3900 block of Webster Street, just blocks from where the burglaries occurred.

On Monday, prosecutors charged him formally in one of the cases – the Sept. 28 burglary of a house in the 4000 block of South Harrison Street. In that case, a teenager inside the house was startled by the burglar in the kitchen in the middle of the night.

A spate of burglaries has plagued the south-side neighborhoods of Harrison Hill and Southwood Park in recent months.
