Griffith PD
Griffith Police say two 19-year-old men from Gary and Chesterton have been charged with burglary after an incident around noon Monday – and police say they have recovered property that will likely be associated with burglaries that have occurred recently in neighboring towns. Police were investigating after someone rang a resident's door continuously, then left quickly upon hearing someone inside say they'd be there shortly. Police say they located two individuals in a car parked in the 900 block of Wheeler, who allegedly advised they were there to visit a friend, but appeared nervous. Police say inside the car was a large screen tv, a gaming system and jewelry box, and further investigation revealed a burglary had taken place.
“Arrests like this show that the citizens of Griffith and the Griffith Police Department are working in unison,” said Chief Greg Mance, “to send a strong message that crime will not be tolerated in our community. “
