Surprise Catch for Police

(Michigan City, IN) - A Kingsford Heights woman familiar enough to law enforcement to be recognized is back in jail on heroin related and other counts. Natalie Stowe, 27, was spotted by officers on routine patrol in Michigan City on January 4 in the area of Barker Avenue and Elm Street.


According to court documents, they happened to recognized her from their patrol vehicle because of her previous encounters with police. A computer check by the officers quickly revealed Stowe was wanted in Porter County on a charge of Intimidation. When approached, Stowe lied about her identity then gave her real name while being taken into custody on the outstanding warrant, police said.


A small amount of heroin was retrieved a short time later following the encounter from one of the pockets in her jacket, which resulted in a Possession of a Controlled Substance charge being leveled against her.


Stowe is also facing several undecided drug related charges filed against her last year in Starke County.
