Robbery Report Leads to Quick Police Response

(La Porte, IN) - There was a report of a robbery in La Porte late this morning.


About 11:30 a.m., officers were called to Ollie’s Bargain Outlet on a report of a robbery.


According to police, two suspects were last seen in a yellow Ford pick-up truck northbound on

Pine Lake Ave.


A witness also jotted down the license plate number on the vehicle, which came back to an address in South Bend, police said.


Officers were scouring the area looking for the suspected vehicle when it was spotted in the area of Indiana 2 and 700 East.


Police said the vehicle turned on 700 East then it was stopped.


An officer with that vehicle was waiting for back-up before proceeding toward the vehicle which,

at one point, seemed as if it was going to try and head in the opposite direction.


Police said no weapon was displayed in the incident at the store.


We’ll provide more details once they’re made available.
