Home invasion victim arrested

By The Mercury

The victim of a home invasion in early October was arrested Friday evening for allegedly selling or distributing marijuana. Detectives said the case was generated after they responded to the burglary at the man’s apartment in the Chase Manhattan complex.

Chase Cargile, 20, was arrested and placed in the Riley County Jail on $5,000 bond for the charge.

Police initially were called to his residence on Oct. 5 after Cargile was shot during an attempted burglary.

Though initially taken to Mercy Regional Health Center, he was transported to Via Christi Hospital in Wichita where he was eventually listed in stable condition.

Cargile reportedly was not alone in his apartment during the time of the burglary.

Capt. Jeff Hooper, with the Riley County Police Department, said Cargile’s case and several others were generated following the burglary.

Hooper said the suspect in the burglary has been identified, and a warrant has been sent to the Riley County Attorney’s office.

Cargile has since been released from the Riley County Jail.
