A burglary suspect in LaPorte tried to elude police by wading through Pine Lake but eventually stopped in frigid neck-deep water, according to a story in the Times today. The LaPorte County Sheriffs Department was called to a burglary in progress at the home of the suspect's ex-girlfriend. Police say about halfway across a cove the suspect gave up. Once the suspect got onto the police paddle boat, police say the man helped the officer paddle back to shore.
