Medora marshal arrests man wanted on parole warrant


After police learned a man wanted on a parole warrant out of Kansas was in the Medora area, they tracked him down and placed him under arrest.

Bradley R. Kocsis, 34, was booked into the Jackson County Jail in Brownstown at 11:24 a.m. Friday without bond.

Medora Town Marshal Jeff Walters said he received information Jan. 4 that Kocsis had been in Medora for a short time and has family in the area. He had served 10 years in prison in Kansas and was wanted on a parole warrant, Walters said.

Walters worked with Indiana State Police Trooper Matthew Powell to gather information, and they tried to locate Kocsis but were unsuccessful.

On Thursday, Walters said he learned Kocsis was back in the Medora area, so he contacted Powell.

Once they determined Kocsis was at a home on County Road 600W, Powell obtained a search warrant from Jackson Superior Court I Judge AmyMarie Travis.

On Friday morning, they executed the search warrant with assistance from other troopers, a state police SWAT team and Jackson County Sheriff’s Department K-9 Sgt. Ben Rudolph.

Walters said troopers were able to call Kocsis out, the warrant was confirmed and everything was done without incident.

Walters placed Kocsis under arrest and transported him to the jail.
