LaPorte Bank Employees Report Suspicious Patron

Employees at a bank in downtown LaPorte called the police on Friday to report a man who was acting suspicious. The incident happened around noon at the PNC Bank at 800 Lincolnway. A bank representative says a white man came into the bank and walked away each time an employee asked if he needed assistance. The man appeared to be studying the ceiling, and possibly the camera system, according to bank officials. He was also typing or texting something on his cell phone while in the bank and appeared to be wearing an ill-fitting wig. The officer who took the report told the bank employees to call the police immediately should any other suspicious activity occur.
