Another secured garage was entered early Wednesday morning in a Liberty Township neighborhood, the Porter County Sheriff’s Police said.

According to police, at 12:45 p.m. Wednesday a resident of the 700 block of Monarch Lane discovered his overhead garage doors open and a Honda XR100 dirt bike missing. The resident advised police that “he was positive (the doors) were shut when he went to bed around midnight” and added that “there might be a way to open the garage doors using the key pad even without having the code.”

The dirt bike was valued at $1,200.

At 6 a.m. Wednesday a resident of the 700 block of Swallowtail Court, located in the same subdivision, woke to find his overhead garage doors open as well and his black 2008 Jeep Commander stolen. No signs of forced entry were observed and it’s unknown how the thief gained entry to the garage, police said, “possibly by way of a foreign garage remote not belonging to (the victim).”

The Jeep was valued at $8,000.

Meanwhile, at 6:54 a.m. Wednesday a resident of the 200 block of Papillon Drive--also in the same subdivision--reported the forced entry of her vehicle and the theft of a purse containing identification and a credit card. No estimate of damage was available but the purse was valued at $30.
