(Michigan City, IN) - Arrests have been made but one person was still being sought for burglaries at a popular place for shopping in Michigan City.
Q’Marion Fisher, 19, of Pendleton, Ind. along with a 17 year old juvenile are charged with breaking into Lighthouse Premium Outlets mall after 11 p.m. on January 4th.
