Tire Fixed But No Spare for Stolen Loot

(La Porte County, IN) - A business owner is hoping police can find out who took a large sum of money from her vehicle.


La Porte County Police noted on Monday, a 34-year-old woman reported a bank bag containing over $1,300 was taken from her car. She told investigators she was going to deposit the funds generated by her business on Johnson Road outside Michigan City.


Instead, though, the woman told police she went to an auto shop on Saturday to have a blown tire fixed on her vehicle, which was riding on a spare.


Two days later, she went to her vehicle to get the money she had placed in the trunk beside the blown tire before it was fixed.


However, the funds were gone, police said.


The victim told police she was going to use the money to pay her monthly rent.
