Arrest in String of Thefts

(La Porte, IN) - A La Porte man accused of taking things from inside vehicles is also accused of

stealing a vehicle.  Alexander Lopez is charged in La Porte Circuit Court.


According to police, Lopez is suspected of rummaging through vehicles about 10 days ago.  At some point, police said Lopez during the theft spree was outside a home in the 200 block of East Street and found the keys of a pick-up truck underneath the driver’s seat.  He allegedly took off in the vehicle.  Police said Lopez hit a street sign along with two small trees then pulled up to Family Express on Indiana Avenue in the stolen truck with a flat 35 inch tire and front end damage.


Police said they also seized numerous items that appeared stolen from the vehicles he allegedly had gone through. 


Lopez has since posted bond.
