Woman Accused of Helping a Criminal

(La Porte County, IN) - A La Porte County woman could face time in prison for allegedly trying to help her boyfriend avoid the police. Annie Flores, 36, is charged in La Porte Circuit Court with assisting a criminal.


According to court documents, officers went to a home in Wanatah last week at the request of a man fearing his children were there, and his soon-to-be ex-wife and her boyfriend were doing drugs at the residence. 


Police said the man was also wanted on a warrant from Porter County. Officers repeatedly knocked on the door, but Flores refused to answer while her boyfriend went into hiding. Eventually, officers forced their way in and found the man in the home's crawlspace.


Flores could face as much as 30 months in prison on the level 6 felony charge.


Flores' boyfriend, Beck Serles, has a record for previous crimes like possession of cocaine and operating while intoxicated.
