The LaPorte County Sheriff’s Department is seeking assistance in finding suspects responsible for a burglary that occurred in the 3500 North block of U.S. 35, north of the City of LaPorte.
Sheriff’s deputies found that sometime between Saturday afternoon and mid-morning Sunday, the detached garage on the property was forcibly entered and several items were stolen. A blue Miller portable MIG welder and a purple 1985 Chevrolet Monte Carlo were stolen. The Monte Carlo is very distinctive as it is a modified race car and has “NMCA DRAG RACING” on the front windshield. The vehicle has no license plate.
If you know anything about this burglary or have an idea of the location of the vehicle, call the LaPorte County Sheriff’s Department at (219) 326-7700.
