Sheriff’s department investigates suspicious site in Hanna Township

     The La Porte County Sheriff’s Office reports that it is investigating a suspicious site in Hanna Township.
     Police said that during Thursday evening, May 21, off-duty Sgt. Tony Wallace was alerted to a suspicious site and items that had been found on private property in the 5000 west block of Volk Road. The site and items were discovered by an adult female who resides in the area.
     The suspicious site was a hole that was approximately three feet wide, approximately 10 feet long and approximately two feet deep. The hole was located just east of the Richman Ditch, in a small wooded area. Clothing and a shovel were also located near the hole.
     After responding and viewing the site and items, Wallace contacted detectives from the Criminal Investigations Division. Deputy Jon Samuelson arrived to assist Wallace.
     Other detectives joined Wallace and Samuelson at the site, which was processed and photographed, and the items were collected.
     Detectives returned to the site again Friday. A K-9, trained to conduct search and rescue operations, was brought in to assist. The K-9 did not provide any positive alerts at or around the site and area, police said.
     The Hanna Township Volunteer Fire Department assisted police in the matter.
