Share this post

In Lake County, prosecutors say a 26-year-old Crown Point man who was reportedly wearing a shirt that had "Jasper County Sheriff" on it faces multiple charges after police allegedly found two explosive devices, handcuffs, a loaded handgun, and police scanner in his car. The Porter County Bomb Unit was called to assist. According to a report in the Times today, court records state Ryan Cohn told authorities he collected police items as a hobby, and when asked about the devices, allegedly said he likes “things that go boom.” He faces two felony counts of possession of a destructive device and resisting law enforcement, and a misdemeanor charge of unlawful use of a police radio. He was stopped Friday after police got a report of a suspicious person and vehicle in a church parking lot in the Crown Point area, and according to nwi.com was released Tuesday after posting bond of just under five-thousand dollars.
