Information from LaPorte Police
The Citgo station at 104 East Lincolnway was robbed for the second time in two weeks on Tuesday, April 18, 2017. This robbery occurred at about 3 a.m. when an armed man demanded money. The clerk complied and the suspect made off with an undetermined amount of cash.
It’s unknown whether the man fled on foot or in a vehicle. He was described as black, wearing dark-colored clothing with his face covered by some type of mask or garment.
That matches the description of two men who robbed the same station on April 10. They were also armed and also left with cash in the early-morning robbery. A short time later that same morning, men matching that description broke into a house on Jefferson Avenue and stole food.
Anyone with information is asked to contact LaPorte Police Det./Cpl. Brett Airy at 219-362-9446 Ext 205.
