Chase Leads to Manhunt

(La Porte County, IN) - La Porte County Police were actively involved in a chase from motor vehicle to foot this afternoon.


Apparently, a vehicle was pursued at high speeds before it stopped in the area of 525 West and 500 North near the South Shore Railroad freight line tracks.


Police said one person was taken into custody but the other individual fled on foot. The person being sought was described as possibly a white male wearing a black “puffy” coat, police said.


About 3 p.m., police were preparing to form a perimeter to try and close in on the suspect and called for a drone to try and spot the suspect from the air. A K-9 dog was also requested.


About 30 minutes later, police were following possible foot prints toward a wooded area. 


So far, we do not know what triggered the pursuit.
