In Porter County, sheriffs police are investigating nearly twenty instances of damage to mailboxes and garbage cans on the eastern side of the county overnight. Porter County Sheriffs Police Public Information Officer Sgt. Larry LaFlower says a lot of the vandalism took place between Sager Road east to County Road 450 East, and between County Roads 500 North and 100 South. "We had 18 reports of vandalism in Washington and Morgan Townships, mainly in Washington Township, where we had garbage cans and also mailboxes that were damaged," Sgt. LaFlower said, and anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriffs Department Detective Bureau at 219-477-3140. Sgt. LaFlower says based on the damage reports, it appears whoever was responsible may have driven their vehicle into the the plastic trash and recycling containers that had been put out by the roadside for pickup, pushing them into mailboxes, but they're still investigating.
