sketchy this morning on a manhunt involving the Lake County Sheriff’s Police
which took place late Thursday afternoon in Jackson Township.
agencies in Porter and LaPorte counties told the Chesterton Tribune
today that the incident apparently began when a LCSP deputy on drug
interdiction duty performed a traffic stop on the Indiana Toll Road. The
subject of the stop fled the scene, however, exited the Toll Road, and
attempted to go to ground in the area of C.R. 900N and C.R. 550E.
subsequently took the subject into custody and neither the Porter County
Sheriff’s Police nor the LaPorte County Sheriff’s Police took an active role
in the manhunt.
The LCSP did not
return a call this morning to the Tribune.
