The Porter County Sheriff’s Police told the Chesterton Tribune after
deadline Wednesday that the man who pulled over a 34 year-old woman for a
traffic stop at approximately 10:30 p.m. on Saturday in the area of North
Calumet Avenue and County Road 700 North is in fact an officer with the PSCP.
The woman had told police the man who pulled her over was not in uniform nor
was his vehicle officially marked. PSCP spokesperson Sgt. Larry LaFlower has
been able to confirm the man was an off-duty PSCP officer, that the stop was
legitimate, and there is no reason for residents to be alarmed.
