Warsaw man held on drug charge

Kevin L. Bronson

A Warsaw man was arrested Monday on a cocaine possession charge after police responded to a call of a man jumping fences behind PurityCylinder Gases near Dot Street.

When Warsaw police arrived, they found Kevin L. Bronson, 54. They said he was having trouble following instructions, was sweating heavily and making statements that did not make sense.

He also appeared agitated, police said.

Police said they found a pill bottle with Bronson’s name on it and a substance inside that tested positive for cocaine.

Warsaw and Kosciusko County police arrested Bronson on a felony charge of cocaine possession. He was being held in lieu of $2,000 bail.
