A Northwest Indiana man who told police he was an 899-year-old god while being arrested for breaking into homes and hiding in a closet will spend a year on probation.
Porter Superior Court Judge William Alexa on Monday sentenced Kevin M. Cosner, 44, of Portage for his March 12 plea to possession of stolen property.
Cosner ingested illegal bath salts sold at a gas station, causing his erratic behavior on June 4, authorities said.
He stole a black 1993 Chevy van in Lake County, which police found in the First Source Bank parking lot at 14 E. Indiana Ave.
A teller called police because Kostner was sweating, acting strangely and talking to himself while looking for a phone to call his mother, and police found him after he broke into homes in Valparaiso to hide.
