Police Dog Takes Bite Out of Crime

(La Porte County, IN) - There’s no hiding from a police dog. Just ask a man who allegedly failed in his effort to hide a good-sized bag of marijuana.


According to La Porte County Police, a vehicle was clocked speeding on U.S. 20 early Monday near 400 West outside Michigan City.


Police said the driver quickly turned into a parking lot and pulled behind a building in a game of hide-and-seek from the officer lasting just long enough for the marijuana to be placed out of sight. After the officer pulled up, a K-9 dog alerted to the scent of possible drugs.


Police said the officer popped the hood on the suspect’s vehicle and located a one-gallon-sized zip lock bag filled with marijuana.


19-year-old DMonte Tyler of Michigan City is charged with Class B misdemeanor possession of marijuana. He could face up to six months in jail.
