Back To Front Page

A suspect in four armed robberies in Valparaiso is believed to have committed a fifth on Friday, of Ribordy Liquors at 1665 W. Morthland Drive.

According to Valparaiso Police, at 5:35 p.m. a male subject--his face partially covered--entered the business with a handgun and demanded cash from the register. He was last seen running westbound from the store.

The suspect was described as being a black male, 5’ 7’’ in height and 150 pounds, wearing baggy blue jeans and a hooded sweat shirt.

Investigators believe the suspect to be the same man who robbed at gunpoint three other city businesses: the Valparaiso Quick Trip, twice, on Nov. 22 and again on Dec. 2; Buz’s Liquor Store on Dec. 15; and the Save Gas Station on Dec. 18.

Anyone with information about the suspect is urged to call WeTip at (800) 78-CRIME. Persons may also contact the VPD anonymously, by sending a tip to TIP411 (847-411) and enter the keyword “Valpo” prior to sending the message.
