KOSCIUSKO COUNTY — Jordan Scott Bronsing, 17, with addresses of 3762 W. Old Road 30, Warsaw, and 2790 N. US 33, Kimmell, has been waived to adult court. He was booked in the Kosciusko County Jail Monday, Aug. 28, and faces charges of manufacturing methamphetamine (aiding), a level 4 felony; two counts of theft, class A misdemeanors; and two counts of theft, enhancement, level 6 felonies.
Bronsing is being held on $15,250 surety and cash bond.
A waiver petition, filed in juvenile court Aug. 9, was approved by Kosciusko Superior Court, Juvenile Division, Judge David Cates Monday, Aug. 28. Bronsing was immediately remanded to the sheriff and bond set. He will have an initial hearing in adult court at 8:15 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 31.
The waiver motion states there is probable cause to believe Bronsing committed acts, which would be offenses if committed by adults: manufacturing methamphetamine, a level 4 felony and two counts of theft, a level 6 felony. The order notes a repetitive pattern of behavior, he is beyond rehabilitation under the juvenile justice system, and it is in the best interest of Bronsing and the community he stand trial as an adult.
The charging documents state Aug. 1, Bronsing, while acting in concert with another juvenile, Robert Nelson Jr., and/or Ryan McBride did knowingly or intentionally aid, induce or cause those individuals to manufacture or finance the manufacture of methamphetamine.
The documents further state the theft charge also occurred Aug. 1, when Bronsing took items from Kohl’s and Walmart. Both charges, originally misdemeanor offenses, were enhanced as he was adjudicated on the offenses of theft, as a juvenile, Feb. 23.
