(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.
