Sugar-Related Car Repair a Bitter Pill

(La Porte County, IN) - A La Porte County man is pretty sour after a sugar-like substance was placed in his gas tank.


According to La Porte County Police, the 46-year old Wanatah man drove the car home from work. His wife then took the car, which quit running 10 minutes later.


Police said the vehicle was towed to a repair shop, where a sugar-like substance was found in the fuel. The damage cost over $4,500 to fix.


Currently, there are no suspects, police said. However, based on the results of the investigation, revenge could have been a factor. The man works for a company that repossesses vehicles, police said.
