Two northwest Indiana men were charged Monday with burglarizing a home in Gary.

Michael C. Jackson, 18, and James E. Smith, 19, both of Gary, were charged with burglary and resisting law enforcement, according to a statement from the Gary Police Department.

Jackson is also charged with a felony count of intimidation for threatening a police officer and his family, according to the statement.

On Nov. 10, police responded to a report of a residential alarm in the 100 block of East 36th Avenue. Officers saw three men on the scene, two of which fled on foot and were later arrested, according to the statement.

Jackson and Smith are in not custody. Anyone with information on their whereabouts is asked to contact detective Gregory Nanney at (219) 881-1209 or the Crime Tip Line (866) CRIME-GP.
