UPDATE: The La Porte County Sheriff’s Office is issuing an update regarding the suspicious 911 call that was made on Friday June 12:

The Sheriff’s Office has obtained video of what is believed to be the female that called 911 as well as a male that was with her. Based on the video, Sheriff’s investigators believe that the 911 call was the result of an argument between the couple. The couple, believed to be in their mid-30’s, left the motorcycle dealership in a light colored vehicle traveling west on CR 300 N. The female has very short dark hair as did the male. The video also shows that the female was driving when the vehicle left the area. The vehicle had been in the parking lot for at least 20 minutes with the male standing outside the vehicle most of the time.

At this point the Sheriff’s Office does not believe that there was any criminal violation and are looking into the matter to verify the female caller’s well being.

Anyone with information on this matter is asked to call Captain Pat Cicero at 219.326.7700 extenion 2404 or send him an email
