Heroin Dealer Allegedly Turns Burglar

(La Porte, IN) - A La Porte County burglary suspect made his initial court appearance today.

27-year old Tyler Lukac is allegedly one of the people involved in the crime.


In 2019, police said a barn on Division Road was broken into by cutting a padlock and stolen

were two four wheelers.


According to police, a DNA sample was taken from flashlight left at the crime scene.


The results of DNA testing and other evidence like a shoe print in the mud allegedly matching a shoe worn by Lukac helped close the books on the case, police said.


In 2012, Lukac was given a 12 year prison sentence for dealing heroin.
