Porter PD: Vehicle entries on Beam Street

Back To Front Page

Porter Police are investigating the forced entry early Saturday of three vehicles parked in the 1000 block of West Beam Street.

According to police, sometime between 12 and 7:30 a.m. someone broke windows on all three vehicles--one parked in front of the residence, two in the rear--then removed numerous items from two of the vehicles: a pair of Pioneer CD/DVD stereo systems, a pair of iPods, a pair of JVC headphones, a portable Playstation gaming system, a wallet containing miscellaneous identification and debit cards, a pair of prescription sunglasses, and three bottles of prescription medication.

No estimate of loss was available, although police did put total damage to the three vehicles at $2,000.

Pole Barn Damaged

One day later, at 11:50 a.m. Sunday, a resident who lives just down the block from the three vehicle entries reported that, within the last week, someone had kicked in the service door of his pole barn. Nothing appears to have been taken from the structure but damage was estimated at $200.
