the bank by different routes in the hope of spotting the car. Officer Matt

believe we have the subjects responsible and there is no further danger to
the community, Police Chief Troy Williams said. I do want to commend the
efforts of the Porter County Central Communications dispatcher and Portage
Police patrol officers and specifically Officer Johnson for quick
