Princeton man arrested in connection with burglary at Spickard


A Princeton man has been arrested in connection with a burglary early last year at a Spickard business.

44-year-old James LeRoy Houk faces charges of second-degree burglary with the alleged purpose of stealing. Authorities said the break-in was at Coon Manufacturing, 78 Northeast 115h Street, between January 1st and April 6th of 2015.

Houk, who’s an inmate at the Grundy County Detention Center, was served with the latest warrant on Friday. Bond is $15,000 pending an October 25th appearance in the associate division of the Grundy County Circuit Court.

Information filed with the charges shows James Houk has two previous felony convictions from the Mercer County Circuit Court. One is for charges of assault in first degree and armed criminal action in 2002.

The other is a felony charge of domestic assault in 2008.
